This is a placeholder while I run out to Lowe’s and Home Depot this morning. I’ve gotten a late-for-me start, so check back again after 10:00am.
What sucks most about my current injury is that I was finally starting to feel like running again. Okay, jogging, but something more than my normal slow walk. Sunday’s hash used a lot of the Big Creek Greenway so there was ample opportunity to run, so I did, until I didn’t think it advisable due to pain. Fuck. Since my knee still bugs me this morning, as of this moment I plan to curtail running for awhile in hopes of that it is a recoverable injury.
Speaking of hashes, yesterday I stumbled upon last Saturday’s trail while I was out walking around Jackson Associates in Sandy Springs before my paid survey. I earned $50 by drinking four samples of light raspberry hard iced tea, but that money has already been spent. Oops! I spent the dough at Harbor Freight, on an angle grinder and cutting wheels, this way I don’t have to rely on borrowing one again.
Speaking of spending money, I didn’t get to stop at Lowe’s or Home Depot yesterday because traffic fucking sucks (can I tell you how much I don’t miss commuting to/from Sandy Springs?). So, I went to both this morning. It was my intent to use up gift cards for my purchases, but the Fetch gift card for Lowe’s didn’t show a PIN, so the cashier couldn’t use it. Ugh. (well, I found the PIN in the email for the grift card, but it doesn’t show up in the app. How stupid!) Since I need the soil I made the purchase the old fashioned, via a physical credit card. I couldn’t be bothered to try at Home Depot today. I wish I had the gumption and health today to go out and dig the two shallow trenches for which I purchased my new trench shovel. WLF will have many uses for a trench shovel, so it was a warranted purchase.
Rain and wind are coming and before they do I need to batten down some of the WLF hatches. I have already lugged all of the soil I purchased to the back end of WLF. It’s amazing how gross 55°F and soaring humidity can feel.
Today has already started, and will continue to be a day of leftover consumption. Before the rain starts perhaps I will harvest a few greens from WLF to add color, flavor, and nutrition to whatever I eat.
Hope that you are healthy, wealthy, and wise
I solved today’s Wordle on my sixth, and final, guess.
