Cooler and wet today as a followup to yesterday. It did finally rain yesterday. It was about 3pm when it finally hit my neighborhood. Temps dropped 10 degrees and the wind picked up. We had some pretty hard rainfall, and the gutters filled up. My gauge says only 0.43 inches, but it certainly seemed like more.
It was raining cats and dogs by the lake, so countrygirl begged off delivering my crazy thick and heavy fence pipes. I’m ok with that. Whenever they get there, I’m not ready for them anyway. I did spend some time looking over the old victory garden stuff to see if it would help me plan my garden. I have an approach, if not an actual plan… and maybe it will refine itself over time. Still no word from septic or structure guys. At home, we can’t seem to get an HVAC guy to replace our system now. Waited too long maybe, because they aren’t calling back. We’ve got a short window before it gets really hot up in the attic again, so I’d think they would be anxious to get as much done before then as they could. Maybe they are, and I’m just not on their list.
I also did not get anything done with my pickup not starting.
I did play a couple of games of backgammon with D2 before having to pick up D1 from school. She’s got afterschool activities going on, so I get to be the taxi. Looking back, I can’t believe the amount of driving my dad did to pick me up from MY afterschool activities. My high school wasn’t close to our house at all, and there was a lot of snow and ice involved during the winter. It explains why I got a license and a car at 16. Also why I had so many tickets and wrecks.
Today will be some prepping, as I’ve got meat to repack and freeze. Then some auction stuff if it’s dry enough for me to pull stuff out of the storage unit, and if the pickup truck is running to take the stuff to the auctioneer. Then some pickups that are all things for the BOL. Busy day in other words, although some may slip if it’s wet.
I’m trying to stack all the things. For some reason, a bunch of auguson farms 30 day buckets have been in the auctions here. I’ve gotten 2 so far. They are not worth the money as they are very low calorie per day, and pretty much all plant based, and mostly carbs and sugar from what I can see. Still, at the price I paid, they are a decent addition to my long term stores. In other words, half retail or less.
Stack it up, it’s changing fast. And not for the better.
