Yesterday was a pretty, and pretty decent day for me. I spent the morning in WLF burning a pile of branches in the fire pit, creating ash for my garden. The burning is also a continuous effort to clean up WLF for 2022. I have more improvements in store in an effort to grow more of the food I eat, and keep the critters from snacking all day and night. Stay tuned!
I read this article describing the change in plans for the old Value Village shopping center on Moreland. I probably won’t be around (one way or another) to see how this part of Atlanta has changed in twenty more years; I bet it won’t be recognizable.
I also popped down to the South Kroger yesterday. I “blame” Bonnie for this because her tempeh dish sounded delicious and I knew Kroger had LightLife tempeh on sale. As an added bonus I received $2.00 back from Ibotta because there was an offer for the tempeh as well. The ITP Estate’s food storage systems runneth over, so for the next three weeks I am going to attempt to cook meals every day which use the items I have been purchasing.
Speaking of food, last night’s dinner was a dish of baked tofu with a package of Knorr Teriyaki Noodles, yet another item I purchased to receive kickbacks. Soon I will be able to convert the 25,000 points I’ve earned in the Fetch app into a $25 gift card; current leaders in the clubhouse for this are Amazon, Lowe’s, or Home Depot. Since over time I will use all of the items I am purchasing to “earn” these points I don’t feel as if I am wasting money. And since I have not earned any survey money since December…
Because yesterday was supposedly the last sunny day we will have in Atlanta this week I eschewed mounting the trainer and did a three mile walk instead. I walked a new path this time, and subsequently confused Strava, which only credited me with 1.5 miles because it stopped recording. There must be some bug going on with iOS, because not only did Strava stop recording, but I also “pocket dialed” for the first time in a decade while walking; sorry, Bonnie.
I have three letters for you — MXC. For what does that stand you ask? Why it’s “Most Extreme Elimination Challenge” of course! MXC was a comedic overdub of an actual Japanese competition show, a predecessor to “Wipeout”, that was shown on Spike TV in the early 2000s. I found MXC on the Tubi app this morning, shown in the standard definition quality and 4:3 aspect ratio of the day, and couldn’t be happier! If you want insight into my humor, look no further than this show.
Today I will continue working/organizing/cleaning WLF in an effort to be prepared for the rain arriving soon. I plan to start trays of radishes and lettuce today too. This being Wednesday means that I will also be headed to Betsy’s for dinner, at least it is her turn to prepare a meal for us. Rats, I will have to miss tonight’s tu-tu trail. 😀 (text emoji still work)
Hope you are happy and healthy.
I just realized that today is Groundhog Day. I guess I should do exactly what I did yesterday then. Lol
MXC – we did a group Halloween costume many, many years ago.
it was hilarious. now I want to watch that show again.
I was Kenny Blankenship, Allan was Captain Tenneal, Doo Doo was Guy LeDouche, and Trick was a contestant.
I made my first batch of FREE King Arthur Gluten Free Classic pancakes this morning.
I have been promised a hike today after “someone” bailed yesterday—we shall see… I don’t have a good feeling about it.
MXC was the best! Wipeout tried to replicate it but it just wasn’t the same.
In from working in WLF. I came very close to getting a new raised garden bed installed, but the OCD part of me wasn’t thrilled with the digging I did, and the tired part of me won out. I’ll finish this next week.
Also, lost another broccoli plant. I noticed that something had completely eaten the top of the plant. The struggle continues…
Well here’s a switch, I got into a Curion survey for next Tuesday at 11:00am in John’s Creek.
$40 for 45 minutes? its an easy gig, just find an errand up that way to make it worth the drive. And there’s always Super H Mart for some interesting groceries.
Back from the wilds of Nashville. Left in the rain and dark at 0630 EDT. Waze saved my bacon 2 different times. I just happened to glace at it entering the outskirts of Chattanooga and it said to get off. I glanced up and saw lots of brake lights- zip, zip zip and right back on! And again somewhere after Calhoun- same deal. There was no relief when passing through Marietta. I waved, Barb.
Dinner last night was at Assembly Hall. Basically a fancy “food court” off Broadway. I had good but overpriced sushi. The place was full of hockey fans before the game. Good people watching.
