It’s Monday again. This was a weekend of no hashing for me. (I’d put a mind blowing emoji here if I could) It was a weekend with a lot of walking/hiking, however.
On Friday I got a new security panel installed at the ITP Estate, all seems to be functioning fine. Afterwards I joined Bonnie for a walk from her house. We ambled down the south side Beltline and then back to her house, covering 5 miles in the process. We then walked to my house to eat dinner, and Bonnie walked home in the freezing temperatures.
I met with Betsy and Bella Saturday morning and we did our routine walk. In the afternoon Bonnie and I met and walked down to Red’s Beer Garden to meet with some hashers who came in from different activities. Saturday night was spent at home, eating dinner with Bonnie and watching the first half of the Packers game.
Yesterday started slowly and Wheelhopper quickly became an impossibility. Instead, after lunch Bonnie and I went to Sweetwater State Park where we did a nice hike. And, I finally wore one of the long sleeve shirts I bought, but eventually didn’t wear, for my Florida trip last November. On the drive back we stopped at Wild Heaven and picked up two four-packs of beer. From Wild Heaven we went to Bonnie’s house where she made us a lovely dinner as I watched the Bucs have one of the greatest comebacks in NFL playoff history only to incredibly collapse in the last thirty seconds of the game.
Two days of football on tv? Who am I, Paulie circa 2000? FWIW- all teams in whom I had the slightest of interest lost this weekend, so I am officially back to not caring a flip about the Super Bowl.
Yesterday I also tried to use my $20 gift card from Philadelphia Cream Cheese for an Amazon purchase, and it failed. I don’t know why Amazon couldn’t use it. I will try using it for an online purchase elsewhere to see if it’s accepted. If not, I will feel as gypped by Kraft Foods as I do by Jackson Associates these days.
I was hoping to spend a lot of time outside in the cold doing some manual labor today. My goals are to clean up some areas of WLF, and keep working to remove a privet stump from the WLF annex out front. I have about forty ideas of what I want to attempt to grow in the small 3’x4’ area I am in the process of clearing. However, I am not feeling my greatest this morning. I allowed the house to get cold last night and I woke this morning with a sneeze and am tired. It’s not COVID, I think it’s winter crud/stress like I used to get long before the term COVID was known to the world. Depending on how I feel later I will decide if I will make it to tonight’s hash. At the moment I am leaning toward “no” since I don’t know if more time out in the cold, even if it’s warmer than it will be this morning, is advisable. We’ll see.
Hope that you had a wonderful weekend.
