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, I went for a run, though it was already quite hot outside. My time wasn’t great, though I did have to stop and tie my shoe halfway through. I ran to the top of the hill (1 mile) and then ran some additional distance on my way down the hill.
After that, I did some housework. I repaired our busted vacuum cleaner, donated some old clothes, and folded some laundry. I also hung up our fire extingisher, which has been sitting on the floor since we moved into the house.
In the afternoon, I fired up the grill and grilled our food for the week. We’ll have hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken and vegetables for the week.
I did a little fill-in grocery shopping as well, as I had not made it out to Vitamin Cottage on Saturday evening.
In the late afternoon, I planted some sweet potatoes and weeded the garden and the front yard. Then, I went for a bike ride (2.110 miles).
Today has been busy, but semi-productive. I started the day by going for a mile-long run. My time was not as good as last time, but it was better than I expected.
After that, I got a few chores done around the house, including weeding the front yard and getting quite a bit of gardening done. I am setting up the soaker hoses, and should be ready to start planting next week.
In between each of these activities, I played on amateur radio, making a few contacts in Montana, Missouri, and Mississippi this afternoon.
I also did some grocery shopping in the evening. I bought myself a new bicycle, and bought my son a new bicycle, so that we can go biking again. I only had a cruising bike, which doesn’t work well for the hills up here in Rio Rancho. My son had outgrown his bike, so it was time for a new one.
I also added a page for some of the baseball games I’ve attended. I posted an Isotopes game from a few years back, and will be steadily transferring these posts from an old website.
