Weekend Blahs

Sucky weekend, just really didn't feel like doing anything. Had to go into work yesterday, because I was already in this state Friday at work, and didn't get what I needed to get done finished. Stopped at Wal-Mart to see if they had any tomato plants yet, because for the second year in a row I failed to start any seedlings. They didn't have any yet, and there was no way I was going to stop at Schartner's on a Saturday, so I'll stop there tomorrow. I only want a couple right now to see if I can get an early start on the season. If a frost hits, it hits, but if it doesn't, tomatoes in July.

So, having no gardening to do when I got home, I loafed. And loafed. Went to bed, and didn't get up until the next morning.

Today started out well. I got up, made some blueberry muffins for breakfast, edited Natter 9 for archiving, paid some bills, had lunch, then started to mow the lawn. Got about two-thirds of the way through when the engine died. It would start again, but the was zero power. I could generate some power by hitting the primer button a couple of times, so I suspect there's a problem with the fuel line. I'll stop a Sears tomorrow and get a new fuel filter for it, and see if that helps.

After that, I loafed for awhile. I tried to get motivated to work on the bookcases some more, and I just couldn't apart from doing some measurements on the face frame header. Made dinner, and just hung out on the board after that.

Now, it's pouring rain outside. To bed...

  • Baby, It's Cold Outside...

    So, it was -10°F outside when I got up this morning, just before sunrise. I don't recall ever seeing a colder morning. Just thought I'd mention it.

  • Halloween 2014

    It's a chilly, windy, misty night here, so there hasn't been a lot of trick-or-treat traffic so far. That a shame, because it was pretty nice out…

  • We're Having a Heat Wave...

    For the first time in what has been an extraordinarily temperate summer, the temperature has broken 90° here at Casa Machina. We are the midst of…
