Nothing to report today. Due to the heat I spent the entire day indoors, and unfortunately doing things — tv watching, internet surfing, book reading — on my couch.

Last night I tried to find more items for decluttering. While I have many things which could potentially be rid from the ITP Estate, I am starting to struggle with parting with them. I need to harden the fuck up and start being realistic.

I will be up for the 80 mile option of Wilson 100 on September 9th. Fear not, I will be ready to ride again on the 10th.

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

    Wordle in 3.

    Wordle in 4 starting with FORCE. Too many words possible. One mistake in Connections.

    • Always a problem with Wordle. My penultimate guess was laughable.

      I hemmed and hawed while looking for a fourth Connections word to form my first grouping. Once I abandoned that thought process I solved it rather quickly.

      Wordle in 4 using Paulie’s start word then Sal’s word for 2nd line.
      Connections – PERFECTION today.

      Lunch today is going to be Brandi’s hot dogs over near Kennestone hospital. It’s a super small place, so we need to be there by 1120 or so to get a table (we hope we can get a table). They are spicy chili dogs – Annette has never been there, so we finally found a day that would work.

    • Jenka says:

      Today was my first day with no mistakes on Connections! Woot!

      • *applause*

        I really wanted to be nerdy clever and group social media platform names (Mastodon, X, Threads), a purposeful trap set I’m sure, but couldn’t find a fourth candidate for my grouping.

        • Jenka says:

          My main issue was Misses and Busts, which are terms we women grew up using to describe girls’ clothing. Fortunately that was the last grouping.

  3. Anyone want to guess what I will be eating for lunch today? Lol.

  4. Barb says:

    BTW – if you play the Kroger online coupon game – there’s one for 4x gas points if you want to shop on Friday.

    • Hahaha, see my comment above. You may have just changed my shopping from Publix today, to Kroger tomorrow morning.

      • Barb says:

        I did something right a month or so ago with that 4x coupon, after checking out on 7/30 I saw we had 698 points. Allan was on his way home from somewhere, I had him stop to spend $2 more so we could get up to 700 points – 70 cents off gas was fun!

        • This would be a good test of my Kroger account as I never seem to get discounted gas (more than the 3¢ for having a Kroger aground) even though I have over 100 points.

          • Barb says:

            don’t’ try to get gas the same day – and I don’t think you can combine months – so if you have July points & August points, they are separate

          • Yeah. I was confused because I received an email telling me my points were going to expire, but when I went to buy gas to use them, they were recognized so I received no extra credit. No big deal really because my Kroger shopping has waned since I no longer go to the Glenwood Park store. Traffic over there is too frustrating these days.

    I had a my once-a-quarter haircut last night after work which meant I couldn’t make dinner so we took Finn to Pure. Busy day at work today.

    I’ve been complete failure at de-cluttering this week. I’ll try to get rid of something tonight!

  6. Realized again that an ebook/online course bundle I bought at the end of last September will expire in a month. I am in the process of downloading as much of the content so I can access it before that occurs.

  7. David says:

    I must have aquired a tape worm or something, because I am famished today. I had a Crunchy Gentleman already from The Buttery (an over the top ham and grueyere croissant) so I’m on my second breakfast, which is a giant cup from Smoothie King. I usually go all or much of the day without eating.

  8. Barb says:

    We went for a little walk (2.5 miles) – dang its hot & humid out there – at least there is a tiny breeze.

  9. Barb says:

    David – play Heardle 70s – tell me if you get it

  10. Barb says:

    Brandi’s Hot Dogs up here in Marietta have some SPICY chili dogs. Even with the slaw, my lips are still burning.

  11. Barb says:

    I’m not a video watching person, so of course I tried to read different posts, etc. Finally started watching videos – and 1 of them worked! (Honda system needed to be rebooted)

    • David says:

      Woot! Great work! My passenger doors wouldn’t unlock for a minute this morning, but I did something with the door handle to get it to reset.

    • Jenka says:

      Filing this away for when it inevitably happens to me.

    • Bob says:

      Good deal!
      For just about anything you are trying to do or solve there is a video for it. Sometimes too many.

    Wordle in 4 with a whiff on my starting guess.

    Time trial is almost over and its special hot hear. 95 says the car. I had turn around duty for the first 2 waves ( and out and back course) then starter, the bike check. Everyone is finished, almost.

    I had done enough socializing yesterday so went to dinner alone a d found really good sushi in the middle of car dealer row in Martinez. Who knew?

    – FP
