Sitting here waiting for the sun, or some semblance of the sun, to rise this morning…
Yesterday was a return to habits day. I started my day doing a little iOS development training before getting antsy and feeling the need to move about. Perhaps I will start my day off the same way today as the weather forecast says that the threat of rain will subside by noon. I want to dedicate the entire afternoon to working in WLF. There are chores I want to accomplish today, including cleaning up some of the branches that have fallen over the past few days, thankfully doing no damage.
I made it to Aldi yesterday, and somehow managed to spend over $70 on “essentials”. ðŸ™„ It’s a good thing that I couldn’t find everything I was seeking while in the store. ðŸ˜‚ While I was in the Aldi shopping center I considered going into Wells Fargo to get laundry quarters, but couldn’t be bothered to do so. My laundry is really piling up, but I won’t get around to doing it until next Monday since I know that I will be getting muddy at least twice more before then.
In the afternoon yesterday I also convinced myself to ride the trainer for an hour again. Huh, look at me! While I was spinning the cranks I watched a documentary on YouTube about an apartment in Portland, Oregon that was converted into a community garden apartment. As you can imagine, it ticked all the boxes for me.
Last night was my turn to cook for Top Chef night. I was feeling a little creative, and had planned to bring over some veggie sausages for dinner. At Aldi I bought some Vidalia onions, and after slicing them, put them into a crockpot with some brown sugar and balsamic vinegar to make a faux caramelized onion jam. The jam was good, but if I were to do it over again I’d omit the brown sugar when also using sweet onions. With the sausages I brought a salad of store-bought lettuce with some tomatoes (some of the last of this year’s crop) and some radishes (from WLF, but my radishes are always a little weird; small and disfigured).
As I mentioned above, today will be spent doing some more coding practice and choring. Tonight I will treat myself to a beer with whatever dinner I whip up.
Hope you are well, happy, and can make it a good day for all around you.
