Hmm, not the greatest of weather we’ve been having. Even a two-bit farmer likes me wants to see some sunshine every once in a while.
I don’t recall what I did on Friday night, which means that I probably didn’t do anything outstanding. I know that I didn’t go to Comedy Night at Red’s Beer Garden because they postponed that until,Saturday night, and then had to cancel it the next day. Oh wait, I fried eggplant and okra for dinner. 😮
It wasn’t raining Saturday morning when Betsy, Bella, and I walked around East Atlanta, but it was humid.
On my trash pickup walk up to the village I was stopped by one of my neighbors who thanked me. It was a nice gesture and we chatted for a few minutes before I resumed my chore. Apparently this man’s family used to own some of the land around EAV, and he has been in his house for 27 years. I like meeting people who have been in EAV longer than my 22 years.
Toward the end of our walk Betsy and I stopped at a local church which was having a plant and bake sale. The farming snob in me didn’t buy any plants, but I did walk away with cookies, a zucchini bread, and a small rhubarb pie 😋😁, and some caramel corn puffs that stuck to me teeth 😮😢.
Saturday afternoon saw Bonnie and me get together. We walked up to Midway Pub to watch the second half of the Atlanta United game, and ran into Betsy there too. I also kept one eye on the tv showing the Florida v. Alabama game, much the same way that most people look at a bad car wreck. The the wrong team eventually won that football game, the good guys put up a better battle than I thought that they could in a valiant defeat. It was good that Atlanta United won, because of the four soccer/football teams I follow they were the only one to do so this weekend.
After leaving Midway and the unexpectedly running into someone who doesn’t live in Atlanta, Steve who hosted the gang of us for a weekend of bike riding last fall, Bonnie and I put on our optimistic hats and went to the velodrome for bike racing. Well, we at least went to the velodrome, since it was clear within fifteen minutes of being there that no bike racing would occur due to the rain. Pity, it would have made for a fun evening.
Yesterday’s weather was no better, I did some choring in the drizzle and then a trip up to Schoolhouse Brewing occurred. There was a thought about going to Kennesaw breweries, but I’d like to do that when hiking at Kennesaw mountain can also happen. It turned out to be beneficial that it was just Bonnie and me at Schoolhouse, because just before we purchased our second beer my old buddy Hank called. Within a span of five minutes we had packed up and were on the road to Contrast Artisan Ales in Chamblee to meet up with him.
As much as I’d like to get more things in WLF sorted today, it’s supposed to rain all day so I guess that I will be staying indoors for choring. Choring in the rain is no fun, unless you are pulling magnolia trees out of the ground since the ground is wet, making it easier to do so.
Tonight’s Moonlite hash is in Marietta. Though I like tonight’s hare, I may use the weather as an excuse decide to stay at home, to rest, and to save money. We’ll see…
Hope that you had a fantastic and healthy weekend.
