2.25″, that’s about how much water the rain gauge caught yesterday. Thanks to my leaky gutter the trash can cum rain barrel caught a lot more than that, but didn’t fill completely.
I spent all day at home. For a good hour or so I transplanted seedlings, sometimes confusing myself as to which seedling is which because I did a poor labeling job. I also planted some more fava bean seeds to replace the ones that never germinated last month.
With the rain falling I put my road bike back onto the trainer and spun for an hour. Unlike my usual routine of increasing gears until I struggle to pedal, I kept the gearing mid-range and pedaled at a steady cadence the entire time. Had I some POV video it would have replicated Sunday’s Silver Comet ride.
When the rain stopped long enough to go outside I took a quick spin around WLF to ensure it survived the storm — it did. We are nearing peak planting season, there is choring that needs to be done.
I received my COVID home tests in the mail yesterday. Thanks to Bonnie for reminding me to request them.
Dinner last night was another Paulie Freestyle. A few weeks ago I splurged and bought a mini mushroom growing kit from Walmart. The mushrooms were ready to eat last night, so I decided to cook them up with some vegetarian pot stickers. I rather enjoyed the resulting meal.
I spent the rest of the night watching tv and phoning my mother.
Today? By the time you read this I may have already been to the Waschsalon and have returned home. Considering I don’t feel as if I am exercising much/enough I have a lot of dirty technical clothing to be washed. But, I guess it’s been more than two weeks since I’ve done laundry?
This afternoon I have to make the journey to Dunwoody for the fifth and final session of my paid survey. Afterward I will drink a celebratory beer with Davey, who has also been doing this survey. I will be quite thankful for not having to remember at what time I am no longer able to drink caffeine or alcohol, at least until I go for my physical in two weeks.
Hope that you are healthy and happy. This will be the last time I mention that it’s still tough going.
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was RATIO. Interesting Wordle find, I tried to play LATIN the other day but the game rejected it. I suppose that proper nouns are not in the game’s dictionary.
