I had an interesting weekend of Wordle. Remember back to Friday when my starter was LAGER? Well, I veered away from that on Saturday by starting with NURSE, and lo and behold the solution was an anagram of LAGER, it was LARGE. I coulda scored a deuce, but instead got it in four. Yesterday I decided to reuse NURSE, jokingly thinking that I have been a day too early, and this proved to be a good strategy. I scored a deuce yesterday because the solution was NORTH!

This past week I have had the fortune, or perhaps misfortune, of starting to read two books both of which deal with loneliness and love. As I have chronicled often in this space I have way too much of the former and not nearly enough of the latter. For the curious the two books are “The Lonely City” and “The Elephant in the Room”. I remember that David talked about the latter previously. On Saturday I happened to stop in an aisle of a DeKalb public library in front of it, and it all but jumped off the shelf into my hands.

Yesterday was apparently National Cheese Lovers Day, which would have been far more appropriate had the Green Bay Packers managed to beat the “San Francisco” 49ers on Saturday night. Because it was a great day to use the oven and I was going to stay at home all day, I baked a breakfast casserole in the morning and then a pot of vegetarian baked beans for the rest of the day.

I managed a less-than-stellar forty minutes on the trainer, body be damned! I really need to start exercising and then have medical professionals figure out what the fuck is wrong with me.

Wordle: three, my starter was BEANS (even though rare is the plural noun a Wordle solution)
Connections: perfect, Yellow > Purple > Green > Blue

    Wordle in 3, connections clean.

    My workout streak was broken by a work call yesterday. After basically being a slug all day, I was going to ride before dinner. When a 3 hour problem call came up and Debbie was hungry, I was done. I did ride 40 minutes on Saturday and 1:15 on Friday.

    Saturday was a nice memorial service for Good Neighbor Steve. Lots of good stories and laughter. A rought count of 150 folks. Well loved. Afterwards, 5 of us went to Meat and Greet for a late lunch.

    HVAC is all but fixed. One jumpered relay to replace, but a new thermostat board and panel and now we can control from within the house.


    • Glad your HVAC is fixed. Just in time for a heat wave. Lol

      I may force myself to do yard work and walk today, saving saddle time for the rainy days ahead. Regards, exercise MUST happen, no matter what I read in “The Elephant in the Room”.

      • I am seeing many common thoughts and knowledge between myself and the guy who wrote the book. Thankfully I have never been nearly as heavy as this man became, though, he has successfully courted a woman and has gotten married. He’s probably happy that he’s never gotten as lonely as I feel.

    Wordle in 5 starting with BLIND. Clean Connections: green, yellow, blue, purple.

    I worked on Saturday and then a friend brought over dinner. We went on a walk first and a trip to TJ Max. Sunday morning I did 15 miles at Red Top State Park. It was a beautiful morning. The GUTS party was Sunday night at Lenny’s on the square. It was a great turnout and a lot of fun.

    Working today!

    And I started reading The Longest Trip Home by John Grogan.

  4. I made my last Amazon order a month ago. This may be a new record for me? What’s also odd about this is that I have about $125 in credit, but have no desire, nor need, to spend it at the moment.

  5. Just did a quick tour of WLF. As is to be expected the hard freezes have just about killed everything, the ground still crunches under foot. Humorously, it appears that some of the critters, I’ll assume squirrels, have decided that the leaf bags that I have laid out as ground cover would make excellent building materials and have torn them to near shreds.

  6. Today is a “Leftover Day”.
    Breakfast – leftover breakfast casserole
    Lunch – leftover chili
    Dinner – leftover beans, either as an entree or paired with something else

    Tomorrow however, I intend to make a batch of hot and sour soup!

  7. Early lunch consumed, “German Cincinnati Chili” so named because I couldn’t find a German town which sounds like “Cincinnati”. I made some spätzle pasta from Aldi and covered it with chili I made the other night, a la Cincinnati Chili. It sounds weird, but there is somewhat of a link given the German population of Ohio.

    regular weekend –
    Saturday Allan was feeling a little sickly – so we started binging For All Mankind on AppleTV. a few people have told us we need ot watch it. Itys a good show, it has grown on me, so I want to watch more episodes.
    Also watched plenty of football.

    Sunday I went & did a little walkabout with Davey, Sue, Neal & Nicola in Roswell, then to Pontoon. Pontoon has so many dogs, I asked the beer pourer if it was ok we didn’t have a dog with us. I’m glad they were able to get their finances figured out & reopen.

    Had a big meeting this morning that I was scrambling to get ready for. I got to my office, put the key in the door, and realized I had forgotten my laptop. Back to the parking garage, race home, grab laptop, and back to work. Ugh.

    I had a great weekend. We picked up Finn from school on Friday and continued up to the cabin. We had a roaring fire all weekend and watched all the footballsing. Home yesterday afternoon.

    So I set out 2 traps for our resident rodents, as I saw one sashay across the pantry floor without a care in the world the other day. The little MF tripped the trap and ate the peanut butter. Anyone for seconds? Come and get it!
