The other day I read an interesting article, The Lake and the Landfill: In Search of Atlanta’s Lake Charlotte, which talks about an area which has been hashed a lot over the past thirty or so years, the Lake Charlotte Nature Preserve in southwest Atlanta. I can’t recall if David (aka Lurker) has mentioned this article in the past, but I decided to include this link anyway. Speaking of hashing, no I did no go last night, but rather Bonnie and I are laying an Atlanta trail on January 15th; I guess we should reccy a wee little bit.
Talk about bad timing. Over the weekend I watched a YouTube video about the Santa and Rudolph puppets used in parts of the Rankin-Bass show “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. The video talked about their rediscovery and rehabilitation, and at the end of this video it mentioned that these puppets were on loan to Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts. What?!?! How cool! And then on Saturday evening I discovered that the exhibit in which they were displayed ran from November 11, 2021 through January 2, 2022 meaning that I had found out too late… Dangen! Here’s to hoping they will return later this year.
Yesterday was too cold for me to get out and look around WLF. I know, I am a pussy. I figured there was little I could do to save any of the plants that may have been damaged by the storm. And as it turned out, it froze last night so today will be a better indicator.
While I considered getting on the trainer yesterday, I talked myself out of it. Today I will have to get on the trainer if my knee feels okay.
I just completed a chore I wasn’t sure would happen today, I walked down the street in freezing temperatures and dragged home three discarded Christmas trees. I swear that there was one more out there yesterday, but it wasn’t there this morning. That’s fine, three will be plenty. Later today I will drag them into WLF and delimb them so the trunks will dry out for future burns.
Hope your week and new year are off to a happy and healthy start.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 188.6 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in); darn, I was hoping to be lighter this week after exercising a lot and eating less.
