Unfortunately Friday night’s high winds and frigid temperatures kept me from burning some wood in the fire pit. Bonnie and I hung out anyway that night, and I put together a frozen pizza for dinner.
We had “snow” again on Saturday? Yikes. My buddy Hank reminded me that this was the eight year anniversary of the Atlanta Snowpocalypse. Because of the weather I canceled my walk with Betsy and also decided that driving down to Newnan for the hash was a bad idea. Instead, Bonnie and I got together and did a walk before she made us a delicious coconut ramen soup at her house. WLF was able to provide the Asian greens for the meal.
Yesterday was a hashing day. Black Sheep was a short drive from the ITP Estate, which I loved of course. Trail was fine, about 5.5 miles long, though it had more road than your normal Black Sheep trail. One of the unexpected benefits of running yesterday’s trail was adding a new photo to my “Home Was Where the Hearth Is” collection.
I have a bunch of choring to do today, although I just found that the coupons I was planning to cash in at Kroger today expired yesterday. Whoops! I guess I will try to eat only food that is already in the ITP Estate.
I have also decided that I will most likely not attend the Moonlight Hash again tonight. I’m just not feeling it, and I heard that the ending will have karaoke, which I still don’t think is a smart idea in these COVID days. As of now I am planning to make a redneck casserole for dinner; tune in tomorrow to find out what that means.
The War on Critters has been declared! I went out to WLF to find that some motherfucking critter has destroyed the only good romanesco cauliflower that was growing. It was bad enough that the critters were eating the kale, but this destruction is too much. This week I will be scheming how to protect this year’s crops so that I am the one enjoying the fruits (err, vegetables) of my labor. I realize that I won’t be able to stop critters completely, but I lost a good bit of produce over the past year and don’t want a repeat of that this year.
Though I screwed myself twice, I have decided to try to get survey money again as it’s currently my only “salary”, and I need to buy more things for WLF.
Hope that your weekend went well, and that you are remaining healthy.
