As I type this I assume there is a sun somewhere above this rain, but I may not see it for hours, if not days. As a (fake) farmer rain is good, but not in the quantities in such short durations. I have my trays out collecting what has fallen and if there is a break in the action later today I will transfer the water collected to longer-term storage. Yesterday I did some of the same sort of water storage transfer, filling about ten gallon-sized jugs with water that dripped into the garbage can that collects water.
Yesterday also saw me spending time in front of my computer following along with a long SwiftUI tutorial. Today, as well most days that I am home, I will be repeating this process and starting to write my own (admittedly simple) apps that I can show as a portfolio when I attempt to become employed again.
I allowed myself to sleep “late” this morning, all the way until 7:15am! 🙄 By doing so I also allowed myself to make and eat breakfast prior to writing today’s blog post. Breakfast is mentioned so that I can tell you how delicious Beyond morning sausage patties are. This is not first time I have eaten these patties, Bonnie provided some for a campout breakfast recently, but I failed to write about them at the time. The Beyond brand has gotten really good at simulating the mouthfeel of animal meat. And, if you can find them as a BOGO at Publix they are economical as well.
This being Tuesday means that tonight will be spent at home. I certainly won’t be going to Red’s, or driving up to Buford for trivia in this weather. This being Tuesday also means that I will be watching the newest episode of “Only Murders in the Building” tonight. I also plan to make a grocery store run today, mostly to buy staples such as eggs, milk, and bread, to allow myself to continue to cook things that are currently in my refrigerator, freezer, and cupboards; I am starting to make a dent! 🎉
Speaking of grocery chains, the other day Bonnie reported to me that the Glenwood Kroger appears to be removing Kro-Bar, the greatest innovation in grocery shopping during our lifetime. If it’s true that they are removing the bar, instead of remodeling it, then I guess we can chalk it up as another victim of the COVID lifestyle. 😢
Hope you are happy and well.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 186.0 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); not horrible, but not good either.
