Screw Omicron, there is a whole lot of chili going around. I mentioned Bonnie bringing some over on Sunday, then Barb mentioned having some too. Therefore I had to make more, and an odd pot I made! I had a box of Carroll Shelby’s chili mix in the cupboard so I used it, a can of tomato sauce, a can of kidney beans, a can of PBR, and a combination of Beyond ground beef and Impossible sausage for the meats. I wasn’t done going batshit crazy however, as I added some chunks of pan-fried potatoes (think “home fries”) that I had baked earlier in the afternoon. With this chili I ate some cornbread (yes, to use the oven to add head to the house), and drank an ice cold beer that I stored in a Canadian refrigerator, aka “outdoors”, for a few hours. What a delicious meal it was, especially when I added some sour cream, cheese, and Fritos to the chili. Woot! Look at me cleaning out the cupboard, refrigerator, and freezer, and, I have enough leftover for at least three more meals.
This digression into poor eating was allowed since I put in a hard 45 minutes on the trainer yesterday afternoon. It was a perfect day to sweat indoors.
On my day off from choring, or caring about anyone except yours truly, I also finished reading the book “The Thursday Murder Club” in preparation for moving onto the second book in the series “The Man Who Died Twice” when it becomes available from the library or I buy as an ebook before the estimated eighteen-week wait expires. This series is written by a man named Richard Osman, who I’ve come to know by watching British tv shows on YouTube.
I mentioned yesterday that I lost a tray of seedlings to the wind which knocked over one of my little greenhouses. I’m still bummed by this, and need to take note of the plants I was growing. Honestly, I planted the seeds about a month ago (I’ll know exactly if I can still read the writing on the popsicle sticks), so I am not 100% sure of my intentions in planting them. I think they were mostly lettuces. This year I intend to be far more attentive to what and when I plant things, and ensure that the identification labels are legible when it comes time to referencing them months after planting.
Theoretically the City of Atlanta will be picking up garbage and recycling today. They’ve not picked up recycling in weeks, and my trash pickup was pushed a day due to yesterday’s federal holiday.
I really need to start adulting today, though I will spend some time outdoors working in WLF to get some exercise as well. This being Tuesday means that it will be a night at home. Who knows what sort of batshit crazy dinner I will make tonight? Oh wait, I do, but you will have to return tomorrow to find out.
Hope you are remaining happy and healthy.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 187.4 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in); not bad, considering I have not been dieting at all.
