My morning yesterday kicked off with doing a lot of laundry, and a little walking. It was good to arrive and see the Waschsalon open on schedule. I was in and out in about two hours.
The rest of the morning was spent puttering around the house before driving to Decatur (Clairmont / North Decatur) to meet up for lunch. As I mentioned yesterday, the food “Japanese street food”, at Tenya was tasty.
Late yesterday afternoon I was bummed to see how much WLF is struggling with the hot, dry weather. I thought that I was going to have to give everything a good watering today, at least until I awoke to the sound of rain and thunder overnight. I was also bummed to see that I waited too long to eat the remainder of my leeks, which have now started to bolt. Unfortunately when leeks bolt they become woody and fairly inedible. Dangen! I really need to continue to clean out beds and start planting the things that will provide me with food this summer. I also need to start harvesting some turnips.
After giving WLF a quick once-over I hopped into the M6 and made my way toward Decatur for the second time yesterday, this time to ride. Starting at Melton’s App & Tap a group of six of us barreled around Decatur, Avondale Estates, Oakhurst, and Atlanta covering nearly twenty miles at a pace of about 16 mph. It was a tough ride, and I huffed and puffed for much of it, but since I don’t know the route I had to fight to stay in contact. With the ride done we sat around and drank some beers. I had also packed two hard boiled eggs for my “dinner”.
I will be spending considerable time today in WLF, as I continue to search for inner peace and happiness. I still have a ton of work to do out there, and need to see if last night’s rain caused any damage.
This afternoon, after a lunch at home, I will be driving up to West Stride running store to visit Sal, and to perhaps make my first purchase of new running shoes in many years. I will have to see their selection as well as the prices satisfy me, since running is not really my chosen sport any longer.
Tonight is a Betsy night; it’s her turn to cook. AND I just launched the Hulu app and think I see that a new season of “Top Chef” has started! I knew May would be a lot better for me…
Here’s to a good Hump Day and though the calendar says May 4, I refuse to type the phrase that you will hear often today.
