I have five wash cycle minutes remaining, let’s see how much I can blog.

Against my desire I forced myself to bundle up to leave the house this morning. Truthfully, while unseasonably cold, it’s not as bad as you would imagine.

My first stop was at Home Depot where I failed to buy anything. One item for which I was going was known to be out of stock, but I know how well employees check, so I double-checked; they were right. I resisted the urge to buy more seeds, and talked myself out of buying rebar unless I can figure out how to cut them. Barb, I may take more of those t posts of you and Allan are really not going to use them.

My goal is to build [five minutes up!] a new raised bed with a taller cage to accommodate plants that grower taller than I expected them too.

In driving today I noticed that gas prices have spiked again, and that some stations had no gas. I also noticed that the M6 badly needs to be washed.

Okay, it’s another busy day for me…

How you are remaining healthy and happy.

    You know they sell rebar in varying lengths. And I have the technology to cut it.

    A quiet, rainy day yesterday. Glad to know the pipeline is back online.

    So American Joe Dombrowski wins Tuesday’s stage and moves to 2nd in GC. Yesterday, crashes at 4km (outside the 3km time mark) and rolls in 3rd to last. On his birthday! DNS today. Damnit. Talk about changing fortunes..

    The pictures from the helicopter make me want to go to Italy.

    Hey Barb, is Kevin working the race?

    According to the news and to the app GasBuddy, gas is indeed a bit hard to be found right now. I never use my GasBuddy app anymore so I had to reinstall it.

    Anyone else having allergy/sinus issues this week? Ugh.

    • I’m feeling tired, but that’s unfortunately normal for me. I may also have a bit of a runny nose due to the weather and/or plants.

        I’ve ben coughing a bit, but that’s nothing unusual.

        It just became an ugly day to be a bike racer at the Giro. pissing rain with 60 miles to ride. No one is in tights/leg warmers, so it must not be too cool, but everyone has on their rain jackets.

    Q: “How do I cut rebar?”
    A: “$9.95 Harbor Freight angle grinder + cutoff wheel…”

    Benefit of working from home, tank of gas lasts me about 3 weeks 🙂

    Although I do have to drive up to Braselton on Saturday for a mountain bike coaching class, I’m sure gas will be back to normal by then. I hope all the hoarders are happy and choke on their extra gas for causing this.

    I’m laying Wheelhopper on Sunday, you guys coming up?

    1st- yes, you can have more posts.

    Yesterday was a shorter hike day, legs were tired from the 8+ miles in the slot canyon day. There’s not much shade out here. Did 2+ miles to too the Toadstool hoodoos (I didn’t really think they looked like toadstools). Then to Horseshoe Bend – that was about 2+ since we went a little further than the official photo op spot. Paulie you’d have hated it, it’s 1000 feet down to the river.
    Then we went to check out the Glen Canyon dam, it’s 10’ shorter then Hoover Dam. Still closed (damn covid) so just wandered around. Read a story that they may “remove” it someday, it’s only contracted thru 2036. The lack of water out here is quite a problem (but still see plenty of green grass & sprinkler systems).

    Heading to the Grand Canyon this morning, then staying in Cottonwood tonight.
    Gotta find a winery, (there are plenty) can’t go on vacation without a wine tasting!
