If you know one thing about me, it’s that I hate waiting in lines. This might be the biggest reason that I like to get to stores early in the morning and get in and out before everyone else arrives. That is unless it’s below freezing outside; it’s 28Â°F outside as I type this.
My hope for today was to get out to Home Depot and Target, the former to buy LED lightbulbs rated for enclosed fixtures, the latter to pick up the order I placed yesterday. Of course the Midtown Home Depot doesn’t have the bulbs I want in stock, but the Jonesboro Road one does. I’m trying to build up the gumption to make a Target run after I wash yesterday’s dishes and take a shower.
This cold weather, along with the below freezing temperatures predicted over the next few days has me questioning the efforts I am making to grow plants outdoors in WLF. I might let the ones currently in the plot plod along, harvesting those that don’t literally freeze to death, and waiting a few months before I start planning 2022’s crop in earnest.
Because I had to,wait around for the electrician to arrive yesterday, my day was spent at home. The visit was done by 2pm, and by that time I was done with the idea of getting out to do anything.
When the rain arrived, admittedly not much, and the temperatures started to fall, my desire to go to the SLUT hash waned. Instead, I stayed at home, making a dinner of a baked melange of boxed stuffing mix, vegetarian sausages, the last of some green beans in the refrigerator, and a can of Rotel tomatoes. The concoction was good, and the oven provided some extra heat for the house as the temperatures continued dropping.
Today? Unsure except for what I have mentioned above. Sadly it might actually be too cold for my meager fire pit to provide sufficient warmth to sit around it drinking beer.
Tomorrow and Sunday hold worlds of options, as long as the temperatures and clothing selections are wise.
Here’s hoping you have a happy and healthy weekend.
