Weekly Ephemera #11

  • Happy Spring Equinox! Today at 10:33 AM CST (UTC-5:00) Spring arrived.  Temperatures are rising and the threat of snow is changing to the threat of rain.  Soon flowers will be blooming and lawns will have to be mowed once again.
  • The Wife has been under the weather most of the week.  The free COVID test was negative so she's probably just battling a bad cold.  I haven't caught it … yet.
  • I only walked once this week.  While I had an excuse for not walking Monday, there was no reason for not walking Friday.  I wanted to blame it on the rain but the rain was over before I would have started to walk anyway.  So I only walked 9.4 miles (15.2 km) well below my weekly goal.  So far this year I'm 73 miles (117.5 km) short of my goal.  Hopefully I'll make up for that when I finish the Appalachian Trail.
  • On Monday our new windows were finally finished when they replaced one of the new windows that had arrived with a cracked frame.  It took a year from when we signed on the dotted line to when the job was completed.  That's just insane.  I blame the pandemic and supply chain issues.  The next project, hopefully started soon, will be to have the exterior of our house painted.  All we need to do is settle on a color.
  • On Thursday I went over to mom's to help her with her Social Security.  It shouldn't be this hard to set up survivor's benefits … but it is.  We made progress but our job is not complete yet.
  • I am a Star Trek Fan and this week I watched the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery.  It was fun to see Stacey Abrams cast as the President of United Earth.  I can hear all the right-wing wack jobs' heads exploding all over the Federation.
