My desire to arise early and go to Lowe’s today has been bested by a desire to be lazy and remain under the covers. To let some of the night’s cooler air into the house I slept with the window and deck door open, so naturally I awoke to a roach in the house. Ugh.
My laziness was also encouraged by a less than stellar day at the ITP Estate and WLF. I am a bit disheartened by the trashing of my garlic and the fact that some of my other crops are remaining dwarf size and not producing vegetables. It seems like for every positive I have is bested by at least one bad thing these days. Iâ€™m hoping that itâ€™s just a temporary phase…
I forgot to mention yesterday that my June goal is to try to incorporate something from WLF into a least one meal every day. I’ll cut myself some slack by omitting days away from home, and allowing leftovers to count.
I started the month making a dinner one would only make for themselves. I combined an onion, red bell pepper, jalapeÃ±o pepper, zucchini (WLF), handful of marble-sized potatoes (WLF), vegetarian meatballs, a can of Rotel, and a bag of croutons and baked the whole thing for about an hour. Surprisingly the result was pretty tasty.
Last night I watched the first episode of an eight-episode documentary called “1971” on AppleTV+. From the name you might rightly guess that it’s about the year 1971 and how music and the United States changed drastically during that year. For the vintage footage alone it was worthy of watching and I will continue to watch the next seven episodes.
I am scheduled to watch Top Chef at Betsy’s tonight and it’s my turn to provide food. I’m still on the fence as to what I will make/bring, and of course I want to use something from WLF.
Hope your week has started well.
Nothing to report from yesterday. Not sure what today will hold. This is probably going to be an uneventful couple of days, but weâ€™ll see.
Thanks. Iâ€™d take uneventful today.
Hope you were successful at knocking out your chores and are able to have some sort of fun today. ðŸ¥³
And then there were 6!
The friend who has his business behind us has a hunting trip planned for October in Montana and it will require riding 30 miles to camp, then riding to the hunt location each day. He needed to start training and found a horse, which we will now be stabling. Sonny is a Spotted Appaloosa- he looks like a giant Dalmatian. The other horses are already treating him mean, but he seems to be fine. I may also be riding Sonny, as I want to be ready for hunt season this fall.
I completed mounting my race lighting on the scooter. I haven’t heard anything more about swapping the 2 other lights out, but for the moment, all 4 are mounted and function. They might get a road test later as they are not mounted with lock washers and I’m afraid of the vibration shaking them loose. Maybe a little loc-tite.
It took me a minute to grok your first sentence. ðŸ™„ðŸ˜‚
Having a garden is tough, donâ€™t get too discouraged.
I did some very needed weeding of my tomatoes yesterday morning, I need to get more done today. There are not as many yellow flowers on the tomatoes as I think there should be by now, they better get started or Iâ€™ll be annoyed.
Iâ€™m thinking a lunch trip to Hankook Taqueria might happen today, Iâ€™ve been wanting a Korean taco. Itâ€™s been way too long.
Agreed. It’s not helping that I keep watching YouTube videos where people are having much more success than I am. I have a couple of small tomatoes forming, flowers that don’t look as if they will ever become tomatoes, and a bunch of green plants of varying heights.
I just got done transplanting four more tomato plants. I still have about ten in small pots. I wonder if I can pawn some off on Betsy tonight…
Hankook sounds good, wish I could invite myself to join you but there is no time for that today. Enjoy!
Disappointment when you open the new bag of tortillas and find they are corn, not flour. My lunch was delicious, just on the wrong tortilla…
Team Gray is still being mean to Sonny… Debbie went out and check on him and he’s got a few scars from overnight, but Ceili has a good cut on her chest where Sonny kicked her. They are all working it out. Herd dynamics.
Been in your tortilla shoes and have felt that disappointment.
Not exactly horseplay, eh?
No Hankook after all today, Hyox went to 3 dives so Allan didnâ€™t have time for lunch.
Maybe next week we can plan a lunch outing.
Ended up Walking to the Marietta Square Market with Mark, had a bulgogi bowl so I still had Korean (they donâ€™t have tacos).
Got a surprise call from Panty Waste, he has 2 extra Braves tix from his law firm for tonight. Iâ€™m not a baseball fan, but when itâ€™s Delta 360 seats, hell yeah we will go.
