I seem to be in a rut this week, spending time puttering around WLF. In addition to that, yesterday had some other activities as well.
As you know, I started my day at a laundromat doing some laundry. I went to the ghetto laundromat because I knew it would take less time than driving to the Waschsalon, it is open 24/7 so I could do laundry at 5:30am, and I found $6 in quarters when cleaning the house the other day.
After returning home from laundry and coffee grounds pickup I did some choring in WLF. I took out some bean plants that were done, planted a few more swiss chard seedlings in that space, and made more attempts at keeping WLF from being a buffet for squirrels. My lunch yesterday consisted of a salad comprised of lettuce, tomatoes, and carrots from WLF.
I made a quick run to Edgewood Retail District yesterday afternoon, and like the laundromat it too was more crowded than I expected it to be. It was 12:30 on a Wednesday, why weren’t these people working? ðŸ˜ I was headed to Ross to in hopes of purchasing a few lightweight long-sleeve t-shirts at reasonable prices. My poison ivy is looking a little better, but I still would like to hide it a bit. I was successful at buying three shirts, at reasonable prices, and avoiding buying the new skillet I had my eyes on buying.
After Ross I went to the Publix by East Lake to grab a few of this week’s BOGOs.
Last night I was the cook for Top Chef night. I made a teriyaki stir fry, using more vegetables from WLF. ðŸŽ‰ I had also brought over some pho noodles, which unfortunately turned way too gloopy, dragging the dish’s flavor down. ðŸ˜• The meal was edible but far from the triumphant masterpiece I had hoped to create. Live and learn.
It’s currently 4:30am as I type this. I was supposed to return home from Betsy’s and get more choring done, but instead fell asleep. Whoops. The choring I am about to do is packing, including those new shirts, for a trip to Florida. I am headed down to see my mother. As an added bonus I will also be seeing my brother and sister-in-law. It’s been a few years since we’ve all been together.
Of course you figured out that I will be stopping at Bu-cee’s on my journey. You know I will need coffee by the time I hit Macon / Warner Robbins. ðŸ˜
Hope you end the week strong, and that the weather headed this way doesn’t dampen your spirits. And remember, itâ€™s Veterans Day so make no attempts at banking in person, or mailing letters, after all itâ€™s not 1981â€¦
