Good morning friends, and family. As the year progresses (today is September 30?), and the sun rises later and arcs lower in the northern hemisphere sky, I am getting up later. As I write this I still have an hour before sunrise.
Yesterday was a good day with more incredible weather. I spent the morning puttering around WLF. As I continue to be stunned at the date and I realize that I need to get seeds started for overwintering, I am scurrying to catch up. How did it get to be the end of September so quickly?
After choring I showered and ate my leftovers for lunch before meeting up with Bonnie for a walk. My legs needed a nice stroll to work out some lactic acid, and I wanted to be out in the weather some more as well. Bonnie and I strolled from her house down and around Grant Park, and back to her house; we covered about 4.5 miles. I was the “hare” for this excursion and guided us to stop into Bennett’s Market, a small general store / deli, that I have passed in a car on many occasions but have never entered. Though neither of us made a purchase yesterday we each agreed that we should return for a sandwich at some time.
Since Betsy was unavailable and Bonnie and I both decided going out to play bar bingo somewhere wading into the cards, last night I kicked sprung the house watching tv and pleasure reading. I really wanted to watch the Atlanta United game, but it was the only MLS game that I could not find being streamed on ESPN+ and I am not sure why that was. Was the game on a local station? Blacked out in the Atlanta area because it was played at Mercedes Benz? Who the heck knows…
Last night I also had a phone conversation with my brother. Did the opossum denude the fig tree of all its fruit last night?
Today should be my last entirely free day as I do need to start pretending that I am still an iOS developer who would like to earn a salary again some day.
I will be getting out to do more choring in WLF today. I have a few projects that I’d like to get underway in order to have the land in the shape I want it to have by next Spring. By getting these projects underway I will also start clearing out the basement again, should would be much-welcomed.
My final afternoon/evening of complete self-imposed freedom will see me reading, poring over Google maps for the Black Sheep trail, making dinner using ingredients currently on hand, and perhaps even taking a nap. 😂
Hope you are remaining well, and are ready to conquer the final quarter of 2021 starting tomorrow.
