Tues. Feb. 9, 2021 – kinda slow out there on the web

Supposed to be raining today, as well as cold.

Monday was pretty overcast all day long, but cleared long enough for a gorgeous sunset sky.

I ran my errands in the morning.  Took a couple of hundred pounds of scrap out of the driveway and took home $86.   Not gonna buy ammo, or send the kids to college, but it beats $0, and for the time involved, it’s a pretty good hourly rate.

Didn’t get a ton done after that.  The afternoon was really broken up by getting both kids from school, one at 2:45 and one at 4:15… and yeah that means a bunch of dead time and driving in between.  Both schools are 15 minutes in opposite directions from the house too.  Kid one normally rides the bus home but she had ‘garden club’ today.   She and the teacher are planning a flower bed and a veggie bed.  There weren’t any other kids interested, so they have the budget and the plan to themselves.

More of everything to do today.  Just like every day Pinky…


It does seem to be sorta quiet out on the webs.  My usual suspects are still posting, and people are saying some small things.  But there seems to be a sense of regrouping, recouping, retrenching.   I definitely feel like people are pulling back.   Don’t know why.  Have a few thoughts.  I know I think bad stuff is coming and getting ready for that takes time, and might not be something that everyone wants to trumpet to the skies.  Or it could be fatigue.  Or it could be depression.  I’m not going to spend much time on it, but I did think it was worth mentioning.

I should be doing more for my own preps at this point too, but I’m not feeling it.   I still miss my little furry buddy every day  and it catches me at the oddest times.  So I know I’m altered and I need to consciously compensate.  I haven’t been doing a great job of that.  But I need to get back to stacking needful things.   And you do too.
