Well…still feel like crap and I’m still searching for a topic that grabs me without much luck….so, what to do? With it being the last day of the month, I guess I’ll just noodle a little and see what happens…just planted some more sunflower seeds out back and picked the rocks out of the topsoil that I used to reseed part of the lawn…have never seen so many rocks…it was like buying rocks with a little dirt in it and I hope the grass comes up…need to mow at some point this week but I think I’ll let the grass get a little longer so I can see where I’m mowing….and let the food I put on it last week try to work….god, I’m miserable and sneezing and I think it has to be allergies….but then I wonder why I feel warm and tired? I think that could be allergies, too, but I have never felt this bad from them….okay…I’ve had enough of this for the day….need some more water and to get some rest….
Well…darn, I think I may have a bug of some sort…have felt pretty crappy the past few days and I don’t know if my allergies are bad enough to do it….there are a few cold viruses going around that are causing some infections and I wonder if I may have picked one up over the past week or so…all I know is I feel lousy and the allergy meds aren’t helping…I wonder when I can take a day off and just lie here and do nothing? Is that even an option? For me, probably not….I would have an overwhelming case of the guilts if I did and would be depressed as heck from it….I did get two rides in yesterday and am going to try to do that again today but I do need to plant the rest of the sunflower seeds I have along the back fence to try to brighten this place up some….none of the other flower seeds I planted came up and that is a little disappointing that I won’t have color around the house….I do need to look in the freezer to plan the next meals for the week and I think I’ll have some pork chops or maybe some burger for tacos…or maybe both….who knows? I do know that I need to have coffee and read some news first before I can get moving…that is going to be hard today….more later…
Well…I knew there was a competition between the repubs to see who could be the biggest hypocrite, and guess what? Ted Cruz wins…just yesterday, ole Ted was on fox talking about a law he is going to introduce that would ban vaccine passports…and he justified it by saying: “Your healthcare decisions are yours to make…it shouldn’t be your boss, the government, or anyone else forcing you to make those decisions”….ted, ted, ted you hypocrite….does this only apply to white men? What about the women you have done your best to make sure they can’t make their healthcare decisions when it comes to reproductive healthcare? Isn’t what happens inside a woman her choice to make? Just like the rest of the repubs, ted is a hypocritical asshole who spends his time trying to score cheap political points instead of working for the American people…so just shut the hell up, ted…geez…
Well…it looks like it didn’t freeze last night so my garden is okay but it does need food again since the soil is so bad out here….my son and his wife were supposed to come out here today but she hurt herself playing with the dog yesterday so we’ll have to reschedule…slept okay last night but still feel pretty crappy with my allergies so darn bad that I am miserable today….and I am still working on my first cup of coffee so it hasn’t had any time to work yet…I did get a lot of cleaning done over the past couple of days but that will stop today with Indy and the coke 600 on later…it will be a lazy day with only one ride today unless I get out for a second one between the races but I’m not sure about that yet….I do want to plant some more sunflower seeds along the fence and the back of the house but that shouldn’t take much time….I have a couple of them up out back but want a lot more of them since they make me grin….don’t have to cook today with burger left in the container and chili dogs to make…just had a taste for dogs and had to scratch that itch….not much to do today…just riding and vegging and I’ll probably get a nap in while Indy is on…..need to start planning to work on the inside of the house and picking out the paint that I want to use in here….but not right now….need more coffee and to watch the MotoGP race….more later….
Well…I just can’t believe this weather…so cold that I had my heat running all day and night yesterday and now we have a freeze warning for tonight? I really don’t have anything big enough to cover my garden so I think I’ll just chance leaving it alone overnight….and the weather says it is only supposed to get down to 39 tonight so I wonder why the freeze warning? Hmmm…at least I got two rides in today so I can have two meals….I did have to wear a fleece for the first ride and the wind was blowing with me on the way out so I could go full speed in 24th until I made the turn up the hill to the beach….and no flat today so I may have fixed the problem with the spoke end cover band that caused the last flat….my allergies are just atrocious today and I have a stuffed up head and a slight headache but I do need to wait to take something until later today since I just tried some flonase spray to see if that would help but I really can’t tell the difference so I guess not….yeah, you guessed it, this one is to replace a political one for today that I just can’t get outraged enough to do…and I don’t have a topic yet so maybe later?
Well…damn, it’s only 40 degrees outside and I think that may be a record low for May in Michigan and that will keep me off the bike until much later in the day…and yeah, I’m running late today with not getting up til almost 7…and the question I have is “when did getting up at 7 become sleeping in?”…sleeping in used to be 9 or 10 o’clock when I was younger but not now…oh, well…I think I slept okay last night with only waking up once but I still feel slow with the damn allergies so bad…oh, and I had a couple of cocktails last night, too, and that doesn’t help….didn’t get out on the bike yesterday and I actually had two meals so I feel pretty guilty for doing that today….had a burger and a bean burrito for the meals and that is too much when I don’t ride…it’s kind of weird that I didn’t even leave the house at all yesterday….didn’t even put the trash out that needs to be done but I’ll do that here in a few minutes….I did clean this place up and start to get it organized and it looks pretty good but I need to do the bathroom this morning since it is too darn cold to ride…and it won’t be warm enough until around 11 but will still have to put a fleece on to get out….not much to do today….just more cleaning and waiting to see if my son is coming out today and that will take up the day…..and I think I’m going to make tacos for one meal today….more later….
Well…darn, I almost forgot to do this one today with cleaning all day…and I’m still not done but only have the bathroom to do so I’ll get that done in the morning…just today ole moscow mitch used the filibuster to keep the senate from passing the law that would set up the January 6 commission to investigate what happened when the right wingers attacked the capital…but the repubs sure don’t want that since all of them were involved if you look at the votes they took to dispute the election results…but the thing that burns me is that the supposed democratic senator from Arizona, Kristin Sinema couldn’t even be bothered to show up for the vote….and that made sure the filibuster couldn’t be broken….what the hell is her job? What is more important than saving our country? Now is the time to just end the filibuster and get the rest of Biden’s agenda passed…and that includes the law to nullify all of the voter suppression that the repubs have passed across the country…and tell Sinema to be the dem she is supposed to be and do her job….
Well…running a little late today with just refusing to get out of bed until 6:30 or so…and I feel pretty slow with the damn allergies flaring like crazy today…and that is just a continuation of how bad they’ve been…something out at the beach whacked me yesterday and I couldn’t stop coughing…it was so bad I had to stop the bike and drink some water to get it to stop…I think I need to find a better allergy medicine if it’s going to be like this all the time….it was pretty funny yesterday when I saw a car from channel 13 sitting at the beach and then seeing the report from the beach on the news last night…and I never watch the local news so I’m not sure why I did yesterday….not sure if I’m going to get a ride in today with it being so cold the heat has been on all night and the wind blowing like crazy…it is supposed to be blowing from 15-25 mph all day with gusts of up to 40 so that will keep me in…but, I need to clean this place up with my son and his wife and their dog coming out to hang for a while this weekend….damn, my right elbow really hurts today as it did yesterday…so much pain that I could barely lift my water glass….squeezing anything with my right hand sets it off and it’s been years since it’s been this bad…and I don’t have a clue how I hurt it….oh, well….just getting old I guess….more later….
Well…with every damn one of the repub senators set to vote against a commission to investigate the January 6 attack on our country, it is not hyperbole to say we are witnessing a continuation of that attack and that makes this vote treason for every repub senator that votes against the investigation. This from a party who spent two years and 8 separate investigations on Benghazi! and found nothing…while there have already been over 400 people charged in relation to the attack and I’m sure the reason they don’t want an investigation is that a large number of these same repubs were involved with the sedition….I want to know who Kevin McCarthy talked to that day and what he had to say to them…we know he talked to trump and we know that trump was happy watching the attack and now ole kevvie heads down to trumps tacky resort to kiss his ass almost daily? Look, what Nancy Pelosi needs to do is just appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of it…just like Watergate or any other attack on this country and let the repubs stew about it…they are all dishonest assholes anyway and will only obstruct the investigation…so cut the repubs loose and tell them to go to hell….geez…
Well…it’s still under 50 degrees out here so I thought I’d talk about something that is a little strange living on the coast of Lake Michigan….almost every day, there is a weather advisory out here that pops up on the weather app that I use on both my phone and tablet….back in GR, you’d get severe thunderstorm watches and warnings along with the same for tornados, but they didn’t happen every day…but out here we get some new ones that I hadn’t seen before…there are always small craft advisories for the coastline when the wind blows at all…and that is every day…but a new one came up today that made me think of doing this one….we are under a gale watch out here today for the entire coast line from South Haven to Manistee….with the possibility of steady winds of 35 mph plus that will start later in the day…and they warn people to make sure their boats are tied up properly and that any items in yards such as umbrellas and patio furniture are properly secured…now, what the heck does that mean? I can understand taking an umbrella down and putting it in the garage or basement…but how do you secure the rest of the set? Do people have tie downs like small aircraft? Back in GR, when a warning came up it was pretty serious but out here it looks like they warn about everything…I guess if I had a boat it would be of use but, if you don’t, who cares about small craft advisories? Okay, this is just an observation and I guess there are lots of people with boats out here that can use the info….just not used to this new normal yet….
