Wed. Mar. 3, 2021 – half way through the week already

Cool and hopefully starting to dry out.  It did get very nice yesterday by late morning after starting as grey and misty.   It even got sunny with blue skies for most of the afternoon.  I think the high was around 74F.   Humidity must have stayed high though, I have lots of little puddles of water on the driveway that didn’t dry out.   It was 46F when I went to bed.

I took advantage of the nice weather and put down grass seed in the front yard.   Then I ran the sprinklers.   No problems in the front.   Stopped the test before the back yard zones ran as I wasn’t quite ready for that.   Did some more clean up inside.   Did some re-stocking- moved food into the house from the garage freezer, put paper products away, moved some stuff from the cold snap all the way back to where it lives most of the time.   Still not completely back together, but that’s due to a lack of effort at this point.

Still pretty sore in muscles and skeletal alignment, even though I slept with a rolled up towel as a pillow, and stayed lined up on my back.  I woke up feeling pretty good, most of the neck and shoulder stuff released and moved during the night.   If I catch it early I can save myself a bunch of pain and time recovering.   It’s a pretty clear sign I need to do more stretching and some strengthening exercises…  on top of everything else.

Body maintenance is starting to take work, and not just ‘happen’.  It’s a great life if you don’t weaken, right?

We’ll need our strength for whatever is coming, even if that is just celebrating a return to ‘normal’…  not that I think that is likely, but it is in my contingency planning.


Busy day today.  Oldest has an orthodontia appointment early this morning, then  I’ve got an auction pickup on the other side of town.   I’m meeting with an A/C guy at the rent house, and all the normal stuff too.  Wife will be working from home for the next two weeks.  They had two positive tests in her office today.   She doesn’t think she was exposed, but who knows.

Heard from an old friend last night that his dad just died from corona, and learned that another old friend in the Houston area had his own little super spreader event.   All 25 members of his family that got together for a party tested positive.   All but his wife have recovered, she’s a ‘long hauler’ and still isn’t back to normal months later.

It’s out there, and for some people it’s devastating.  Stay sharp.

And keep stacking.  No matter what’s coming, stacks will help.
