The rain has arrived, bringing with cooler weather. Of course the next rains that will arrive will be the forebear (I always thought that word was “forebearer”) for the freezing weather.
I spent some time working in WLF yesterday. My biggest chore was to,cut down part of a mulberry branch that shades one of my raised garden beds, as well as drops mulberries into it. No bueno. The branch was bigger than expected, so part of its extremities hit some of the plants, forcing me to harvest them. No biggie, the kale and pak choi were delicious in my soup. With the branch down I chainsawed it, as well as a lot of other long branches which were too thick to hack up manually.
Last night I stayed in, and watched the documentary “Fantastic Fungi”. It wasn’t as nerdy and informative as I hoped, delving a lot into the medicinal benefits of fungi.
Tonight I will was another documentary on Netflix, “Kiss the Ground”, in an effort to knock out some of the things in my queue before cancelling the service next week. Yes, I am sure there will be some amount of regret no longer being a Netflix subscriber, but I don’t watch enough of its content to warrant yet another price increase. When I cancel Spotify along with it I will be saving $25/month, an amount at which employed software developer Paulie would scoff, but now seems excessive.
Before the rain arrives for the ensuing twenty-four hours I am making a run to Walmart, yes Walmart, to buy some things that I can only purchase there and reap rebates, before the offer expires today. Yes, I procrastinated. I intend to risk putting some potatoes in soil today to ahead of the rain and freezing temperatures for fear that the will rot to the point of not growing if I don’t get the, in the ground. Poor timing on my behalf I suppose.
Hoe that you are staying high and dry, figuratively and literally of course.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 188.0 pounds (-4.0 from last week’s weigh-in); I assumed last week was a bit of an anomaly.
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts.
