Yesterday was a decent day of choring in WLF. At some point last year I bought a large spool of 4′ fencing from Tractor Supply Co (and had a heck of a time driving it home in the M6); yesterday I took tin snips to it and cut four, 6′ panels. With two of the panels I created a wall up which I hope to grow beans, and with the other two I created tubes also with hopes of having beans grow up them. Yes, I intend to grow a lot of peas and beans this year. I still have a lot of fencing, with which I may make tomato cages. (Barb, I will take as many posts you are will to get rid of. I can buy a TC dinner, or whatever.)
In the afternoon I ran (drove) up to Edgewood Retail District where I briefly hit up Target and Kroger. I thought that I was going to buy a lot at Target, but when push came to shove all I purchased were two jars of Ragu pasta sauce. To my dismay, even on a dry and blustery day I could not forage any receipts in the parking lot. (This is an inside joke for Bonnie, who has introduced me to the world of working hard to earn pennies by answering surveys and scanning receipts.)
Upon arriving home I puttered briefly before starting the construction of my dinner. Last night was another Paulie Special in which I started with a recipe and took it in a different direction. Having leeks to harvest before they bolted, the starter recipe was for potato leek soup. However, I had a handful of spinach in WLF, along with more kale to harvest, so naturally they also went into the soup. Oh, and I had a package of Field Roast sausages, so why not add those too? Had I remembered that I intended to blitz the soup with my immersion blender, I would have not absentmindedly tossed in the cooked sausage before doing so. Oh well… In the end I wound up with a green soup, which believe or not tasted pretty darn good.
Last night I gathered all of my income tax paperwork. Today I will ensure that I have a copy of all of this paperwork and will deliver it to my accountant. This may be the latest I have done this task, I hope she can fit me in before the April 18 filing deadline. I could probably do my own taxes this year, but I like keeping my rapport with my accountant even if we still won’t be meeting in person.
While in the Decaturish neighborhood of Scott Blvd / North Decatur Rd I will hit up the Aldi and perhaps the mega Kroger in preparation for tonight’s Betsy dinner, for which I must cook.
Hope your week is going well and that you are not getting the allergy sneezing that I am suffering currently.
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts. I started today with RADON in case you want to see if you figure it out faster than I did.
