I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was BREAD

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 186.8 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); disappointing.

  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 34 seconds.

    Heardle fail.

    Wordle in 2 (woot!) Mini in 2.

    A quiet night with Debbie on the road. I was cleaning up a rock pile in the pasture- where we throw the rocks to collect them in a central place- and managed to do something to my shoulder. It feels better today, but I actually iced it last night.

    The children were confused as to why they got thrown out of the house and fed breakfast at 0500… Aunt Patricia will be by later today to feed horses and let them out.

    ITT at the Vuelta today might shake things up a bit…


  3. Trying to motivate myself to get shit done today. Been outside once, swarmed by mosquitoes while putting shredded paper into a compost bin, in the oppressive humidity.

    Wordle in 5 starting with TWICE, pretty typical for me. I feel like I have a tendency to overthink that game. Mini in 42 seconds, I’ll take that. I’m generally happy with anything under a minute.

    Heardle: failed on the main, 70s, and 00s. Nailed the 60s, 80s and 90s in one second, got the 80s #1 by the skin of my teeth.

    Regarding the weigh in, what goes up sure doesn’t seem to come back down, does it? I’m feeling that in a big way (and what an apt choice of words there, sheesh).

    We’re still in the dog days of summer, don’t punish yourself for feeling unmotivated.

    Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” came up in my Pandora mix yesterday. When he said “This is from ’72 also…” and I realized that was 50 years ago I almost barfed. I like Bob Seger, but I’ve heard that song more than enough times for this lifetime. Some songs just age better than others.

    • It feels as if I am working hard to lose weight, with little success. I guess I am compensating with calorie intake.

      Yesterday Betsy sent me a quote about something being thirty years old, and thinking that meant it was from the 1970s, not 1992. Time is weird.

      • David says:

        Just know you’re not alone on the weight struggle. For me, it’s just ridiculous. At least after this week I can start getting on my bike again on the regular. Let me know if you want company on a Stone Mountain ride in the coming weeks. I haven’t been there since I broke my arm, and I’m looking forward to getting back to it. I’m planning to revisit Arabia Mountain this fall too.

        Time is weird as fuck.

    Wordle in six using Bread. Brain not thinking straight. hahaha. I too am having difficulty getting motivated today. It’s too hot. But I do need to go test my creek. Hopefully not too murky from all the rains we have been getting. GUTS run later tonight. Luckily I don’t have a scale. Lost that in the break up. :).

  6. Barb says:

    today was a bad Heardle day
    started good – 60s in 1 seconds. 80s #1 – could not get the title – duh! the rest of them – just could not come up with name, or band on them.

    Mini – over 2 minutes -not good either.

    but – Wordle in 4 at least.

    My mom hung in there until yesterday morning. I got the call as I was driving into work yesterday and turned right around. Service is Tuesday and I’ll head up to Massachusetts this weekend.

    Otherwise it was a pretty good weekend. We arrived at Summer Shade just when it started raining and had to stand under a tree for 30 minutes. After that we got some food and walked around, but it was super hot and humid so we convened at a friend’s house on Hansell/Rosalia and sat on their back deck.

    • David says:

      I nipped over to the festival a couple of times. I caught a couple of minutes of a high school band doing a RIGHTEOUS version of a Black Sabbath song. I went back to watch my friend’s band, and went over later to try to find food, but bailed because the lines were all ridiculous. I didn’t go back at all on Sunday. I kept myself from actually shopping at the festival because I have way too much stuff and I don’t need more. I’m glad it was back in the park. It wasn’t bad until the clouds parted and then it was blistering. It is special to live 3 doors down from a festival like that.

      • Jenka says:

        Yep, I parked on your street and wondered which house was yours. It was really blisteringly hot, you are right. At street festivals like that I don’t buy stuff anymore, I just wander around with a beer in my hand. We know a lot of people in GP so we were chatting with them most of the time.

      • David says:

        Also, I meant to add earlier that I’m sorry for your loss.

  8. In from my morning activities. Picked a ton of shishito (or pepperoncini) peppers, some okra and green beans, and a few small eggplant. Looks as if my decision to let squash plants run wild may pay off, a lot of vegetables being spawned, let’s hope they make it to maturity.

    Showered and ate lunch of a fake chicken sandwich with some okra, eggplant, and green beans from this morning’s pick. Fueling up to hopefully do a bike ride tonight.

  9. Thunderstorm moving through putting tonight’s ride in jeopardy. Poop!

    I blew leaves from carport and driveway today, certainly this is now a wasted effort. Double poop!

    Also, almost all seedlings have perished. Will start another tray tomorrow. Triple poop!

    And still hoping yesterday’s chomping on a rock hard peanut did not tooth damage. I have a dental appointment in two weeks, I guess I will get a conclusive assessment then.
