Oh Florida… Last night I watched the opening game of the NFL season. The game was in Tampa, had an estimated 66,000 people in the stadium, and very few other them seemed to be wearing a mask. At least the game was outdoors? 🤷🏻♂️
Fun fact: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won two NFL championships, but they only need two digits to represent them for they won in 2002 an 2020.
Yesterday was a really good day for me, with the only setbacks being not getting something for which I stopped at two Aldi stores to buy, and overcooking my pasta dinner.
As you know, I took the M6 down to Morrow to get some routine maintenance done. That went to plan with no unexpected expenses. After the dealership I drove to an Aldi down there looking for a camping table I had seen in their weekly ad email. No dice. I then drove to the Aldi down on Moreland, no dice there either.
After returning home I changed into choring clothes and headed into WLF. I spent a good two hours working with Wee Little Chainsaw, cutting up the felled pine tree and pushing large sections to the side of the yard. I have one thick, nearly nine-foot long section to deal with soon; the stump is going to have to stay there for awhile.
Two hours of tree work exhaust per me, so I switched to light maintenance, taking out tomato plants affected with blight, deadheading flowers, etc. My only mistake there was killing part of a butternut squash plant by cutting it instead of the dead leaf I was intending to prune. Oops!
After Bonnie dropped by to give me the box of books that were delivered over the weekend, I puttered around for about another hour before calling it quits for the day.
By the time you read this I have probably already returned from Lowe’s, where I spent my $25 gift card on compost.
Today is more of the same when it comes to my activities, mainly I will be working in WLF. I doubt that I will do any work on the pine tree, instead I plan to do some sowing, transplanting, pruning, and general cleanup.
Tonight I hope to cook a veggie burger for dinner, perhaps outdoors on the grill, or perhaps in the house.
Tomorrow will be a walking day with Betsy and Bella followed by more choring around the house.
Sunday is a Black Sheep day!
Hope you have a fun weekend planned, taking advantage of the fall-like weather.
