Yesterday, I started out my morning with a five mile run. My time was not fantastic, but it did feel good to go running again. It had been almost a month since my last run, due to my travels and work schedule.
When I returned from running, I weeded the gardens for two hours. I did so without a shirt, so my back is now nice and red. I can’t wait to strap on my backpack this morning, as I’m sure that will feel great. While I was out there, I replaced the batteries in the weather station, as the transmitter was having trouble reaching the receiver inside the house.
In the evening, I did some cooking and cleaning. I made some delicious tuna steaks, seared and coated with pepper and Old Bay.
I also applied for a handful of jobs on UpWork, so we’ll see how that goes. Some of them were really neat! I also updated my amateur radio logbooks and sent a few QSL cards.
Yesterday was a good day. I spent the day working with students on various projects all day. I ran around and got the final approval for the chem-e-car competition location, and assisted three or four groups. I also worked with the instrumentation class and their group project. I also met with the metal casting group and checked the casting we had done a few days earlier.
In the evening, I took the train home. The train was delayed quite a bit, so I missed the connecting bus in Albuquerque. Then, once the next bus showed up, I missed another connecting bus, as it was late. Finally, I got to my car, somewhere around 11. I did get to spend some of that time reading, writing and catching up my amateur radio logs, so it was still a productive time.
Yesterday was a slow, but relaxing day. I did some housework and caught up on some of my amateur radio log books. After that, I made a few phone calls and had dinner with my girlfriend’s parents. Overall, it was a good day!
