Well, well, well, two outta three ain’t bad, right?
I went to the Southern Comfort hash on Friday night. Well, I went to the end of the Southern Comfort hash on Friday night for the Christmas tree burning. Beforehand Bonnie and I decided to go out for a walk to get exercise. We walked three miles down the south Beltline, which meant a six mile walk was in order. Well, we then decided to walk to My Friends Bottle Shop, adding another two miles to our journey.
Saturday’s hash went well, we had over fifty hounds. Well, more like fourteen. Most people seemed to like the (5.5 mile) trail even though they had some difficulty solving our checks and some people were hoping for harder shiggy than we went through. I thought our trail had a good amount of runnable shiggy and interesting scenery to be a good Atlanta trail. The On After was at Arches Brewing, but I was not in the mood to be out any longer so I headed home instead.
And then the snow arrived on Sunday!
WLF experienced its first snow! (Yes Bill/Ronnie, this is enough to be qualified as “snow” in Atlanta) The snow and cold will put the final nail in the coffin for some of WLF’s crops. I’ll let whatever is going to die die, and deal with some cleanup next week.
The high winds caused the power at the ITP Estate to go off/on about ten times yesterday morning. When the winds died down, the snow started falling.
After being outside on Saturday I was worn out and couldn’t convince myself that going out in 35°F, wet weather by attending Black Sheep was a good idea. From what I’ve seen on Instagram it appeared that the pack who did go out (perhaps even more hounds than we pulled in on Saturday) had a blast. Instead of going out I allowed myself to be a lazy slob and do nothing. Bonnie walked over with frozen chili and we dined on it while sharing some beers and watching tv.
Today, well, it’s MLK Day and I have the day off! ???? (fuck, emojis are really gone for awhile; you are probably pleased by this…) Last year I joined hashers in picking up trash. This year, I am not sure. The weather here is supposed to remain cold, which will mean that the snow may or may not melt. [update at 7:30am — I just peered through the window as day is starting to break and see that most of the snow has already melted!] Because of the cold I won’t be hashing tonight, even though the start is at 5pm. I will try to jump onto the trainer for awhile in order to get some exercise.
Hope all is going well and that you are remaining healthy.
Each day one of the ways I try to improve myself is to read the blurb about a piece of art using the Daily Art app. Today’s entry referenced a work in the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens. Excepting the university located there, I rather like what Athens offers.
Michael Lachowski works at that museum. He’s give you a tour if you asked.
Oh yeah, I didn’t even think about that.
WLF suffered at least one casualty. The wind blew over one of my little greenhouses, knocking over the tray of seedlings that were inside.
I will probably wait until February to start planting again for 2022.
I don’t yet know what today holds… Probably nothing much. I don’t foresee the husband leaving the house.
It’s cold, but not as bitter as I thought it would be. The coldest part of walking the farm was rinsing my hands in a bucket of water after dumping out the seedlings that were destroyed.
February is 2 weeks away!
Saturday there was fence post driving with good neighbor Steve and a couple of his crew.
Sunday was a plumbing day. The electrician finished Friday so no excuses. A trip to Lowe’s to gather pieces and I’m off. One F up, cost me enough pieces I had to go back to Lowe’s for more. Then one more F up left me one piece short. Did I mention I hate plumbing.
There may be fence wire work today if I hear from GNS. I don’t know if he gives his crew MLK off.
What’s to hate about plumbing? Oh, wait…
And all that work from yesterday, well 80%, just got ripped out because of a leak. We start anew with a different plan.
Busy morning, didn’t get up early enough to relax before logging in.
Sorry we missed your hash, decided to stay local. Had dinner plans that night & didnt want to drive across town twice.
Sunday we decided to just watch football all day & make chili. Snow barely collected.
I old Ramaho I’d meet her at the hash tonight, but she’s bringing Libby, so we aren’t doing trail. I doubt I could get there by 5:30, even with it close. Soon enough I will be working in my own (not training) so I can bug out a little early if I need to.
Bummer that the new job didn’t give you MLK Day off.
Transportation doesn’t stop for holidays (unless its Thanksgiving or Christmas)
Ah. I missed that you were back in the transportation industry.
Just failed to get into a $40 Curion survey. Think it’s for bottled/canned coffee but am not sure.
Two more Curion fails.
