I am playing the breakfast long game this morning. I am not at all hungry, even after 7:00am, so I am (over)baking, oops, a breakfast casserole on which I will snack today and make meals from during the remainder of the week.
It’s no surprise that I have no hunger this morning given the gigantic burrito and side of vegan chili that I ate last night at 97 Estoria. 97 Estoria? Oh that’s because I plan to reuse that next week as the start of my Moonlite trail.
In addition to working my paying gig, I puttered around WLF a lot yesterday. I took down a large branch of a privet tree that was “stealing” light from the FGP of WLF. Later in the afternoon I brought out the chipper/shredder and chewed up the newly-downed branches along with some others that I had collected over the past week or so. I also transplanted some leeks, a crop that I have yet to master getting past the teeny-weeny plant size. And finally I did a little reaping by harvesting two fantastic radishes and one beautiful pak choi.
The harvested vegetables were added to my lunch of an instant noodle soup that I bought at Aldi. The fresh vegetables elevated the meal to another level. Pity I don’t have any other pak choi or radishes ready for harvesting, because they were delicious.
Today I expect to do things a little differently. In addition to my work for “XYZ Corp” I will be getting some exercise in the form of a walk (I wish that I could make time for a ride), and hanging out with Bonnie for a little while; I’ll have to start giving her tips on how to age gracefully…. as if I knew. ðŸ˜‚
Hope you are happy and well.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 181.8 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); not great, but considering the calories I have consumed recently, I’m not upset.
Sorry I am taking you away from a potential ride. (We are refinancing the house today and stupid Georgia law requires another witness other than the bank-appointed witness and Paulie graciously will provide his services.) We will make it worth your time by taking you to Redâ€™s Beer Garden for dinner. #birthdayweek
You are not. I donâ€™t have enough time due to all my commitments. I should be more like Barb and say â€œfuck itâ€. ðŸ˜
I am lucky to have an understanding hubby that is allowing me to take a sabbatical.
If it will be anything like the one I took in 2016 it will do you a world of good.
My day went completely off the rails about 11 with a knock on the door from the county zoning enforcement. Apparently, the neighbor called about all our pasture dirt that ended up in their pond. I took the afternoon off so I could dig out the drainage along the road, ran to Lowes for another 200′ of silt fence and managed to get a lot of the dirt picked up. Still work to do, but everyone should be happy with the effort.
Will there be a decent walking option for your trail next week?
Hmm, I always hate it when â€œneighborsâ€ go to the authorities without first taking it out with the affected party. Sorry.
Yes, there will be a long/short. The long will be no longer than five miles, the short should be less than four miles. Given the area, there will be very little shiggy.
Maybe now that I have free time, I could start going to Monday night trails? What an idea….
I signed up to donate blood on the day of your trail but Iâ€™m sure I can still manage it. I get a $5 Amazon gift card plus entered into a drawing to win a $25,000 camper! ðŸ˜
I need to sign up there- where?
YOU DID WHAT?!?! HOW DARE YOU!!!! 🙂
good luck with the drawing.
Steve- that sucks.
But, you never know whatâ€™s going to happen until thereâ€™s a good rainstorm.
Hope you get it fixed to make everyone happy.
Thatâ€™s why we were at Annetteâ€™s new house yesterday, the drainage wasnâ€™t planned all that well for their backyard, so trying to come up with an easy way to fix it. ( they now get to present our ideas to the HOA, what a pain)
I have a lot of experience with “neighbors” like that. So far I’m getting the last laugh as she installed her fence backwards which is against code so now she gets to re-install the entire fence 🙂
I’m hoping she sells that house to end this BS.
What time is Reds? You never know, we might show up? Allan has never been there.
Depends on Bonnie’s paperwork. I am due at her house at 5:30pm. I assume we will head to Red’s directly after the paperwork is completed.
Paulie is correct. I have no idea how long the refinance paperwork with the attorney takes but we will head over to Redâ€™s immediately thereafter. We can keep you posted. Bring proof of vaccination for a free can of Montucky Cold Snack lager (4.1%).
Allan said…. Reds? That sounds good
