Yesterday I spent a few hours puttering around WLF, mostly surveying wilting plants and burning brush to clean up and generate some ash.
Because I’d not gotten sufficient exercise and I was feeling very antsy, I went out for an hour-long walk in the afternoon. The weather was perfect for the activity and I counted four Christmas trees, all too far from the ITP Estate to be dragged. I considered walking to a grocery store to buy some carrots, but in the end just made a large figure eight that went nowhere in particular.
Last night’s dinner was a stew concoction. At first I was going to follow the recipe Instant Pot Quinoa and Butternut Squash Stew verbatim but then, well, I wanted to use some of the vegetables still remaining in WLF. Remarkably the butternut squash used in recipe was from WLF! It was one of two small ones I successfully grew. In addition to the squash WLF supplied gnarly small carrots, a daikon radish, and about five broad bean pods.
Jackson Associates is on my shit list again. I assumed that I would be a shoe in for surveys after they took away my $60 gig a few weeks ago. Last night I got all the way to the last question on a desserts when they bumped me from participating. Dangen! I also seem to get fewer opportunities to earn money from them than Bonnie. I know, completely different demographic, but still.
Because I haven’t been thrilled with the ghetto laundromat I am trying to return to the Waschsalon in midtown. I thought I had learned my lesson, arriving fifteen minutes after the posted opening time, but alas have arrived to find it dark. Having seen the erosion of the quality at this place wants me to give up on it completely and if I could find another laundromat nearby that accepts credit cards I’d stop coming here forever. 7:25am opening, the attendant was apologetic, but we all know that this of far from his first offense.
I have a busy day ahead today. After I get my laundry I will be calling the mysterious Bill/Ronnie to talk about some family stuff.
My attempt at returning to the coding lifestyle went poorly yesterday, so I need to push myself harder on that front.
And tonight is a Betsy night; at least it’s her turn to cook.
Hope you are remaining healthy and happy, and that you find all of your businesses open when you arrive.
