Requiem for tomato plants – I did the same thing I did last year. I used the heating pad for germination and a sun lamp to help them grow. I planted 4 varieties of tomatoes (multiple plants) and only one variety is left with only 2 plants sort of thriving. The others are dead. Deader than a doornail. I have replanted another batch and we’ll see. I’m blaming it on the weird weather patterns even though they are in a comfy bedroom. Sigh.
Gym folks are crazy – My gym has an odd parking lot. It angles out like a pie so there are many parking spots farther out with the closest marked for handicapped. The gym is not a rehab facility. I doubt whether a handicapped person could use it but businesses are required to have them. After months of going unused, this past week I’ve seen them full. On Friday I saw one of the users. He was a very buff young guy with pumped up shoulders the size of Alaska. I know you shouldn’t judge these things but I can’t help it. This old lady walked past his car to get to hers. If you are going for exercise why is it important to park right outside the door to avoid walking?
I hate phones – I much prefer to email or text a message. First there is the convenience of doing it anytime but most of all I don’t get trapped in a long phone call. It happened this week. I had to let someone know a date. She wasn’t a friend. I was passing on a message. It took a half hour and all the standard end of call moves didn’t work. I was ready to feign a heart attack! Desperate times, desperate measures!
Exhaling – It’s been a busy two weeks. Speaking for myself as an older person, I hate when a bunch of things clump together (especially a big dental one). When I was younger, I went from activity to activity without a thought. Some activities were rescheduled because of lousy March weather. I’ll be exhaling this week although it’s busy too. Just not as busy.
Ancestry update – My research work goes by the wayside when I’m busy. I did find someone born in 1778 this past week. I didn’t think that was possible because most of the records for my ancestors started around 1790. Although I am 30% British, I haven’t found a single Brit. I’m still betting on those crusaders in the middle ages poking around in the villages.
So how was your week?
