Had I known that I was going to do a little tree management in WLF yesterday I would have waited to plant the tomatoes in the experimental part of the farm. It would have helped if had I better skills in tree management because then I would have been able to drop it into the area that I had intended and not bent some tomato cages and broken a few potato plants. ðŸ™„ In the end all is fine and nothing was irreparably damaged, WLF will get some more afternoon sun, and I will have more wood to feed to Wee Little Chipper and Wee Little Fire Pit. I also filled another bag and a half with English ivy; slowly but surely I am getting it out of the yard.
I was not the only one doing damage to WLF yesterday, the caterpillar offspring of the white cabbage moth destroyed the remaining two cabbage plants, so there will be no cabbage for me this season. ðŸ˜¢
Oh, I snacked on some freshly-harvested sugar snap peas while working in WLF yesterday. ðŸŽ‰
Before starting work this morning I am going to putter around WLF doing some much-needed organizing, cleaning, and future planning.
And then I’ll work. However today I will have a couple of hours of diversion thanks to being a Big Nerd Ranch alumnus. BNR is celebrating twenty years and have invited former students (I wish that they had hired me, but thatâ€™s another story) to watch some online seminars.
Tonight I will be watching an episode of last year’s Top Chef with Betsy. We may go crazy and actually watch the episode together in person, for the first time since February 2020.
The jury is still out on poison ivy. I have a few itchy spots, but nothing has festered yet. I’m still in the window for this however.
Hope your week is going well and that everything is falling into place for you.
7:05am and I’ve puttered and now need to clock into work. Not a great deal accomplished in 45 minutes outside, but it was better than doing nothing. And at least I didn’t damage anything out there…
Fortunately no one was early enough to see that I had Thursday’s date on today’s post. ðŸ™„
I thought I slept okay, but I could certainly return to bed right now.
I had one of my best tent sleeps ever last night. Todayâ€™s adventure is Providence Canyon. After coffee and bagels with (lots of) cream cheese. Vacation! ðŸ˜
Sure, I’m not around and you have your best tent sleep ever. What are you trying to tell me? ðŸ˜¢ðŸ˜‚
Enjoy your hike!
The ITP Estate just had a momentary power outage. That hasn’t happened in awhile…
I need to weed my tomatoes, maybe Iâ€™ll get around to that today.
My body hasnâ€™t adjusted back to eastern time, getting to sleep is hard, then waking up is hard. Maybe Iâ€™ll take a nap this afternoon.
A pretty good day in the orifice. While the one vendor wasn’t able to rearrange his schedule to meet with me, I managed to capture his devices making no effort to talk to their management PC. They talk to the internet just fine, so I think something is misconfigured somewhere.
My primary goal in the office was to do some wireless testing with a national engineer. We’re preparing for the return to the office and the expected increase use of the wireless network. Of course, they are most concerned the C suite has good coverage. I sat at their desks and workstations and the engineer took signal strength and noise readings. Fairly boring, until my LEO escort took my picture while sitting at the president’s desk! There may be blackmail soon… (actually, she’s a friend and thought it was too funny not to capture.)
I do like WFH traffic when I do drive in. I just went looking for a story I heard on NPR yesterday about a tech employer coming to midtown with 700 jobs and now can’t find it. Software engineers, UI/UX folks… sorry I didn’t catch the name.
The break of 10 has over 13 minutes with less than 100km to go. The finish today is an unpaved mountaintop road!
Was it FanDuel? I did a quick Google search and this looked like the most relevant hit returned.
That might have been it. The report did say something about sports information.
I don’t know how RCS (the organization that puts on the Giro) handles timing splits, but when we (the commissaires) do it, moto 2, who is out in front with comm 2 finds a landmark, calls it out, and the moto or comm behind you starts a watch. Simple. In the period of a minute, watching the coverage, the gap went from 11:30 to 14:08 to 12 something and all around again. It’s nuts! Hopefully, it’s not being reported to the teams on race radio that inaccurately.
Heading to AL with Mark & Annette to some bank that isnâ€™t in GA. (But was in TX or NJ) Itâ€™s just not convenient for living in GA. So Iâ€™m tagging along while they close the account. The things I do when I have no job go to do.
Sounds a little fishy. Did they ask you to drive? Carrying any ski masks?
