Well, it’s happened again â€” I applied and failed to get into a paid survey. Iâ€™m sure that I will qualify for some eventually.
I’m not sure what I did for most of yesterday. I guess I spent some time reading; I’m currently reading a book about the pawpaw fruit. Most have us have never seen nor heard of the pawpaw, never mind tasted them. They are Americaâ€™s largest native fruit (in size), grow naturally from mid-Georgia to Michigan, from the East coast as far west as the midwest but have never been commercially viable to grow. Here is a YouTube video showing how to grow papaws.
My recent reading has been unexpectedly linked. The book I finished recently, “The Good Lord Bird”, contains a historical account of John Brown’s raid on a US Armory in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia as part of his attempt to abolish slavery. In the book I am reading currently, “Pawpaw, In Search of America’s Forgotten Fruit”, the author meets up with a pawpaw expert in Harpers Ferry and even references the John Brown incident.
Yesterday afternoon I drove up to the Publix in Madison Yards in an attempt to get inspiration for the meal I was going to bring to Betsy’s house for “Top Chef” dinner night. I suppose I failed at that too because I wound up bringing over a frozen pizza onto which I piled in peppers, tomatoes, and fake chorizo sausage; at least the peppers and tomatoes were from WLF. Betsy and I watched the first episode of this year’s “Top Chef” which was filmed in Portland, Oregon last year.
With the prediction of rain for most of today I will be spending my day indoors, working on cleaning and organizing my basement, and hopefully starting to get back into coding. My two other goals for today are to figure out how to get some decent exercise while indoors, and to eat less than I have been eating lately.
Hope that you are having a decent and healthy week thus far.
