Español! Walk! Yard Work! Bike! 9.4.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:46 pm  

Came in #1 last week. This week I have two people that are super good students. I’ll come in the top three pretty sure.


Warmer today, but still beautiful.

Be prepared.

Español. This was something I wrote.

Preparing for the Guatemala trip means that I needed to make sure that K and J can get their groceries.

We have so many spiders these days. Started about two years ago.

Walked 5.10 miles. That’s a record for me.

Twenty-nine times up and down my hill.

Warmed up by the time I finished.

Cleaned and refilled my hummingbird feeders.

Swept my outdoor carpet.

Cleaned and straightened St. Francis.

I have held off feeding my birds for about two months because I was so pissed off about the stupid squirrels. But as Fall is coming, I decided to refill them. I’m curious as to how long it takes the birds to come back. I read an Audubon article about what a hard time birds are having with the climate crisis.

Cleaned the water bowls/baths.

I repotted my Frangi Pani. She has really been neglected. She needed a bigger pot and fresh soil. Hopefully, she’ll be happy. She’s another plant that reminds me of home. That and bananas in particular.

Vacuumed the house. Since I’ve stopped mowing and using only the weed whacker, this is the hardest job on my back.

I always clean it out completely after I use it.

Cleaned the glass door. Smudges bother me.

I’ve enjoyed playing Horizon Forbidden West again. It’s such a beautiful game.

Listened to Hot Chip while I rode my bike. Electronic music always keeps me going. Super up tempo stuff.

I had a shorter bike ride today because it started getting dark. Still nice and warm.

I saw this dead armadillo on my ride. Interesting to think that they’re in the area.

Wow. Usually, if I put that many points on the board I’m creaming everyone. Not this week!
