Happy Black Sheep Founders Day!

On Saturday I successfully secured my fourth Georgia Beer Day Glass. I also ate an amazing carnitas burrito from the El Tesoro located inside the West End Wild Heaven Beer. Even though I can realistically walk to the original El Tesoro location, this was the first time I have eaten their food. With my burrito I consumed a West Coast IPA and a nitro Irish stout, both of which were delicious.

I am down to four clocks that require my attention when the time unnaturally shifts; they are two battery-operated clocks, my Kindle (which although connected to the internet refuses to set its own time), and the clock in the M6. Technically my microwave’s clock should be changed, but the ITP Estate loses power so often that I have stopped setting its clock at all. Oh, I suppose I have introduced two new “clocks” whose time I must set, the two outlet timers which control the lights and germination heat mats in the basement.

With a cold morning staring me in the face yesterday I baked a pumpkin bread. I laughed for believing that I could convince myself to walk to Kroger in order to buy nuts and raisins to include into the loaf; I didn’t. The loaf would have been improved by their inclusion, but tasted fine anyway.

I wish YouTube would put a badge on the thumbnail images of videos which “Includes Paid Promotion”. In my opinion “paid promotions” are advertisements under another name, the only difference being that Google receives no money from them. Unfortunately I know that Google won’t do this because if I saw how many videos still contain ads after I pay for an ad-free experience, it would be damning. Hell, with this information I would probably also cancel my YouTube Premium subscription.

Wordle: four, my starter was ACORN
Connections: perfect, Green > Yellow > Purple > Blue

    You had a lot to say this morning. Must be a good day.
    Can’t even remember what I did on Saturday except run at Kennesaw, pick up a garment at the alterations place and prepare for the GUTS races that were held on Sunday. I had to be at Sweetwater State Park at 6 Sunday morning which really meant 5 a.m. to get things set up for the runners. Since it was a 25k and a 50k, I was there all day. Up early this morning to head to the doctors for an 8 a.m. appt. to have my stitches removed. I may or may not go to Founders Day. On the fence about that one.

    Wordle in 4 starting with MONEY. 2 mistakes in Connections: y,g,b,p. I knew the purple but couldn’t come up with a fourth word for that category.

    • I’ve had two days to write, hence the verbosity.

      It’s unfortunate that I’ve scheduled myself to do nothing tonight, otherwise nothing could keep me away from Black Sheep tonight. Suuuuuure… lol

    Wordle in 4, starting with STEAL.

    The new truck should be smart enough to account for the time change. My car is certainly not, and a clock in the house that “says” it’s getting a satellite signal is too stupid to change. Hmmm…

    No more cardiac issues since Friday evening, and that was just a little blip. Waiting to see if I hear from the “chest pain group” today and what their plan might be.

    Saturday, with crappy weather recently, the closing hunt was called off, but the catered “breakfast” was already scheduled and went on as planned. A good crowd and it’s nice to see folks in other than riding apparel.

    After making breakfast Sunday, I planted the forsythia bushes along the front fence line. Easy digging since the ground is so wet.

    Started watching “Murder and other matters” on Hulu. Very Agatha Christie-ish.

    Rode 45 minutes last night- no ill effects.

    Good morning and happy Monday to everyone! And what a glorious day it is today, albeit a little cold.

    My weekend was a mixed bag. Friday we took Finn to Rathbun’s with our friends Sarah and Elayne. Some other friends were there for dinner, too; they stopped and said hello to us on the way to their table. Wonderful time as usual. Saturday evening we went to the United home opener against the New England Revolution. It was fun but the game was a blow-out and we left after United scored their 4th goal. Got home around 10:00 and Finn got sick around 10:30. That went on all night and stopped early Sunday morning. He spent Sunday on the couch pretty miserable. He’s always healthy as a horse but I didn’t think much of it until I got a text from Sarah that she had been sick all night too. Then we got a text from the other friends who had been at dinner and 3 out of the 4 of them were also down. Kevin, Elayne, and I were all fine. So that was fun.

    This week should be very light for me since my boss is out of the office 3 out of the 5 days. It’s also Emory spring break so all the students are gone.

    • Food poisoning? That seems to be the logical connection. Was there something they ate that the non-sick group didn’t? A specific salad perhaps?

      Regardless, sorry to hear this and hope that all have recovered by now.

        That’s what I’ve been going over and over. In our party, Finn didn’t eat anything that Sarah and Elayne ate, with the exception of the bread and butter. However, I also ate the bread and butter. So it is a mystery.

    Wordle in 4 using my usual word — my 4th guess was a complete and total guess out of thin air.

    Connections with 2 mistakes: yellow > green > purple > blue.

    In Strands I only guessed one wrong word before I figured out the theme.

  5. I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but one carrot has been in the ground and neither nibbled by critters nor growing large enough to split and rot. I pulled said carrot today, and just ate it. It was crisp and sweet, an unexpected blessing.

    • Unfortunately the bitter weather killed the one Chinese Napa cabbage that I have been looking at recently to eat. Shame on me for not harvesting and eating it before it could perish.
