Yesterday I mentioned changes, here’s one: I am no longer working for “XYZ Corp”. I am still employed, at least for now. As of yesterday it (finally) became public knowledge that “XYZ Corp” (aka “Ionic Security”) has been acquired by Twilio; I have been sitting on this news for at least a month but couldn’t say anything. Sadly I made no money on the acquisition as my stock options were worthless, and, I’m not sure that my skill set is any better suited for Twilio than it has been for the last three years at Ionic. So, today begins a “let’s see what happens next” phase of my life…
Instead of going to the hash last night I spent a few hours messing about with WLF yesterday afternoon, wearing myself out. My first task was to feed a bunch of small branches through Wee Little Chipper; I still have many thicker trees and branches with which to deal. After I had my fill of chipping I decided to perform a farming experiment by planting five tomato plants directly into the soil that surrounded the pine tree. I also encased each plant with one of the tomato cages acquired from Barb and Allan. Fingers crossed these plants will thrive; time will tell. I continue to adjust the layout of WLF, with more to come. I also planted the last of my seed potatoes since they looked as if they were yearning to be put into soil. I am close to harvesting the first batch of “early” potatoes that I planted in March. 🤞🏼
Today is the day that I need to get through without feeling itchy in hopes that I didn’t get any poison ivy on Sunday’s hash. I am not feeling very optimistic that I have been spared because I think I already started to feel itching last night. ☹️
I’m also poorer now that the Federal and State IRS agencies have scooped out more money from my bank account yesterday. ☹️
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 179.4 pounds 🥳 (-0.8 from last week’s weigh-in); if I can avoid getting poison ivy this is a great week.
