Weekly Ephemera #53

This was another slow week full of not much of anything.  When I wasn't watching stuff on Paramount+ (it's Paramount+ binge month here) the following was happening:
  • Over the last eight or nine days we've had 4 inches (10.2 cm) of rain.  Our ground is pretty saturated.  On Thursday the Wife called me out to the garage to show me something:

    Earthworms fleeing the flood waters.

    We live on a local high spot of our street and, apparently, the earthworms headed for the high ground during the rain on Thursday morning.  I take this as a sign that we have a healthy lawn.
  • Caught up on my chores including cleaning the dryer vent - something I often neglect.  I replaced the crappy vent flex pipe with a rigid/quality flex pipe combo a few years back and, when I do take the time to clean it, I find there really isn't much accumulated lint. [Yes ... I am proud of my dryer vent.  I have such a rich life.]
  • We are still waiting for the painters/drywallers to show up.  Their excuse is some of their crew called in sick last week.  Sounds like the new excuse for these 'post-pandemic' times.
  • As I mentioned Friday, I walked three times this week.  I totaled 29.4 miles (47.4 km) ... a good week.
