Song: “Lily the Pink” by the Irish Rovers
Today was a pretty good day. I relaxed a bit, worked outside a bit, and accomplished a few things that have been on my list for a little while now.
It took less effort than normal for me to get up and go outside. I think the nice weather helped – it’s been a little cooler the last few days – and once I got my momentum going, it felt good to be on my feet and doing stuff.
I also played around with a Raspberry Pi, but I was having trouble getting it to do what I wanted and started getting a little frustrated so I abandoned it. I used to really enjoy playing with that stuff but I just can’t get into it the same way anymore. Maybe I need to spend more time with it to help get back into that stuff.
J went shopping after work so she got home a little later than normal. She picked supper up on the way home and we had a little celebration for the good news we’ve had lately. We also watched some Futurama. Some of the jokes haven’t held up very well but it’s still a great show.
I’m trying to figure out what to do with my aquarium. Right now it has a half-dead plant and a healthy Marimo moss ball in it. I’m not sure what’s killing the plant – there doesn’t appear to be anything else in the tank. I should probably grab some water and put it under the microscope to see if it’s teeming with protists or something.
J is heading out tomorrow afternoon and will be back Monday. I’ve got a bunch of things queued up to do to keep me occupied. Here’s what’s on the list so far:
- Start reading a new book
- Going for a drive to see if I can push my boundaries a little farther
- Cleaning around the house
There’s no shortage of things for me to do.
