Even with a good Friday evening drinking a couple of beers while watching Bob and Laura bowl, my weekend was frustrating. Why? Because of the rain and the pain I have been nearly constantly suffering for the past six months.
I was able to pick up a bag of trash prior to meeting up with Betsy for coffee and a breakfast sandwich on Saturday morning.
The rain wiped out any thoughts of trying to hike in a state park, and lowered my morale to the point where I didn’t even feel like driving to a far away brewery to they something new.
On Saturday night I made Nobody’s Grandma’s Meatloaf. To my fake beef and pork I added onion, a packet of onion soup mix, an orange bell pepper, breadcrumbs, and a ground powder made from dried mushrooms and dried shishito peppers. The resulting loaf was incredibly moist and delicious, even if it didn’t really feel as if I were eating meatloaf. With my meatloaf I ate some small potatoes that I boiled, and then roasted in the oven while the meatloaf baked.
My pain is diminishing my quality of life, and therefore I am going to try to initiate changes this week.
My curiosity on Friday evening may have possibly saved me from all of this. As I left the ITP Estate to drive to Decatur on Friday I decided to drive in the direction of a large plume of black smoke. I assumed a car was in fire on I20, but instead a car was on fire at a gas station, and I had to drive directly past it. By the time I arrived the car was in flames, but the fire department was already on the scene and putting it out.
If you think back a few months ago you may recall my lament that an old Flickr friend of mine, Dave, was shuttering his brewery, IronShield. Well, John (aka HamWithCam) informed me that Dave is the antithesis of me, and had already found something else to do, start a YouTube channel Dave in the Shop. Dave’s channel is nerdy, coming from me that says a lot, but if you are curious to help out a local, give his channel a watch since he needs the subscribers and viewing time for YouTube to bless him properly.
