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? 😏 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. 🎉 I had also brought over some pho noodles, which unfortunately turned way too gloopy, dragging the dish’s flavor down. 😕 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. 😁
Hope you end the week strong, and that the weather headed this way doesn’t dampen your spirits. And remember, it’s Veterans Day so make no attempts at banking in person, or mailing letters, after all it’s not 1981…
