It’s good to be home again.

Well, did I underestimate the ability of some seeds to germinate. Last Tuesday I sowed some tomato seeds, expecting them to perhaps germinate by yesterday. When I went down to the basement yesterday one of the trays had seedlings that were almost two inches high! This is unfortunate because they are very leggy and perhaps weak. I may have to start over if these seedlings die.

WLF did fairly well in my absence. With the exception of some animal digging, most of the plants grew well, I even have some potato plant emergence.

I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was DELAY

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 197.4 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); only acceptable since nearly every meal for the past week was eaten in a restaurant.

    Wordle in 6 today starting with RABID. My big dog bit my little dog on the nose yesterday. Big dog is aging and starting to lose her marbles. And maybe she’s not dealing well with the change in pattern since my wife moved out. Eddie is doing well today, fortunately my wife was working so it was the easiest emergency vet visit ever. It’s always something though.

    Wordle in 4 starting with SATIN. Very disappointed that I didn’t get it in 3.

    Up early to meet a shipper at I-75 to hand off Harry for his trip back home. Yummy breakfast at Huddle House and now getting my trailer tires but on my trailer. Sooo productive before 10 am. Why am I?!

    Just curious, simply because I’m nosy, but do you not cook when you’re at your mom’s?

    I had a big meeting yesterday, it’ a cruel reality that all of our most important meetings are Monday mornings. Today is our last kid-free day from winter break, I need to figure out where we’re going to dinner.

      I actually thought that too – good question Jenka.

      I cook a lot for my parents when I’m at home, so they have leftovers for a little while after I leave. (Give my brother a break on shopping & feeding them)

    • My mother hasn’t really cooked in years. She microwaves some food and eats cereal. I don’t mind going out because when I leave she has a lot of leftovers to hold her over for awhile.

      I’m also unsure what sort of cooking gear my mother has in the house, and how old they are.

    • Jenka says:

      Similar to Barb, when we went to visit Kevin’s parents if I didn’t cook no one would eat. I just made do with what was there utensil-wise. One time I was making a pork loin and realized they had zero spices of any kind, so I dumped a packet of ranch (like, the dry kind that you add olive oil to for salad dressing) on it and my father-in-law raved that it was the best thing he’d ever eaten. Hey, at least he was easy to please!

      • Barb says:

        Jenka – the spices choices at my parents’ house is comical – we tend to go to Aldi, so I buy some random spices, & then make it up as I go. My dad is no fun to go out with – so, its just so much easier to cook at home. I’d like to go out, but it isn’t worth the hassle.
        All they do is microwave food, I really don’t think mom needs to attempt to use the stovetop or oven, that could be disastrous.

    Had a friend’s daughter & her boyfriend over for dinner last night – we joke that she is going to take care of us in our old age (I told her we’d put her in the will) so we needed meet the boyfriend. He was nice, quiet, but we’ve all know each other forever.

    Tonight we may be revamping our vacation, the weather has been way too cold & snowy in Northern AZ – we may decide to go south to Tucson, or something like that.
    Hell – maybe even Mexico???? We have passports, I wonder if they do, and – is there any rules about taking a rental car out of the county? Hmmmmm

    Well, Amazon has taught me not to make impulse purchases. I bought a drawer organizer based on something I saw at the mountain cabin last month, but didn’t measure the intended drawer first. Amazon said I could drop it off for free at Whole Foods. I went on Sunday and found a broken return kiosk and an unmanned customer service desk. I abandoned the plan and went back this morning. The kiosk was working. I think next time I’ll just go to Fifth Street and have a better shot at finishing the task the first time around. Or just pay $6 to drop the return off wherever.

    And speaking of Whole Foods, $12 for a tiny tub of tuna salad? Christ. No thank you. Y’all can keep that shit. I clearly haven’t shopped at Whole Foods in a while. I did get out for only $21, but I also didn’t get much for said $21.

    • Barb says:

      we take our Amazon returns to a UPS store – (plus, Whole Foods is not convenient at all) I buy some “local aka Blairsville” grits there – that’s about it.

    It’s that magical time of the year where I’ve signed a contract to write a book and will pocket my initial advance without actually do any work yet. It’s almost time to work on my annual update of QuickBooks Online for Dummies again. The blood, sweat, and tears from the previous three editions should pay off this time because I finally have the book completely in my voice, and organized the way I think it should be. I originally inherited the text from a previous author, and let’s just say our writing styles are markedly different. AND…this year I won’t be writing two books at once with a broken arm, so it’s going to truly be a cakewalk! 🙂

    Wordle in 6! And it was something I love!!!

    Sorry for the late response this morning. Debbie has clearly picked up my slack- who is she, anyway? She was in bad when I hit the shower, but left before me after I helped get Harry loaded. Sorry he didn’t work out.

    Trying to sort out a couple issues around here, including a new employee who’s usual co-worker is home sick today. What fun.
