As days go, yesterday was nearly monumental. No, it has nothing to do with the Braves’s World Series win…
I started the day picking up Bonnie for a breakfast stop prior to the journey out to Conyers. Breakfast was had at the original Flying Biscuit on McClendon in Candler Park, or is it in Lake Claire? 🤔 Breakfast was fine, though I could have asked for the food to be hotter, heat not spice. I cannot complain about the coffee however, as they served me three cups while there, and gave us both a cup to go!
From Flying Biscuit I wound the M6 through Avondale Estates toward I-285, eventually taking I-20 eastward. Of course the M6’s TPMS fired again, but this time I was not rewarded with finding money in the parking lot of Tractor Supply. After wandering the entire store, I picked up the two bags of fertilizer that I ordered online and had delivered to the store. I won’t need as much fertilizer as I expected, since I saw a squirrel scamper off with the last lettuce leaf remaining in my lettuce bed. Fuckers!
Once back ITP I joined Bonnie for a trip to Kroger. I needed to purchase some supplies for this coming weekend’s adventure — camping in really cold weather. While there, we got confirmation that KroBar has been removed. Fuckers!
Yesterday afternoon I realized that I brain farted and forgot to buy cheese! So, a trip to Aldi was made.
They said it couldn’t happen.
For years I have heard the lore of a special Aldi purchase, one for which I can understand waiting in line to purchase, unlike a copy of the AJC heralding the Braves’s victory. 🤷🏻♂️
Yesterday’s Aldi flyer mentioned the arrival, but I never expected to see it in Georgia stores, never mind to be in a store with an opportunity to buy one.
“What is it?!?!” you ask?
The Aldi 2021 Beer Advent Calendar!!! For $50 I purchased a box of 24 beers. 🎉🎉🎉
Excited with my purchase I went over to Betsy’s for Top Chef night. Betsy cooked a wonderful butternut squash dish, whose recipe was supplied by Bonnie.
Perhaps the only thing that could have made the day better was figuring out how to get the itching to stop. I did see the poison ivy growing amongst the English ivy that I was pulling recently, most likely the culprit for my current body malady.
Today? Well, it certainly can’t be better than yesterday… With the light rain that is falling on the ITP Estate I have resumed water collection. I will have to prepare for this weekend’s outing. I will attempt to read, and put the ITP Estate in some order as it is currently a mess.
I know your day wasn’t as awesome as mine, unless you’ve published a book or something. 👏🏻 Regardless, have a great day today, and do your best to remain healthy.
