What a week so far... At least it has been very nice weather-wise, we've had highs in the sixties. Plant sprouts are taller and, if my eyes aren't deceiving me, the lawn has turned slightly more green. Next week will start off cooler, below average again with highs in the 40's.
Sam Dekker and Ben Brust after the loss.
The week started by waking up Sunday and avoiding all the articles on the Badger's one point loss the night before in the Final Four. Oh, I got around to watching and reading most things eventually, but it was a hard pill to swallow. 68 teams go in but only one lucky team finishes with a win.
We'll get 'em next year, boys!
Instead I used my time on Sunday to get started on yard work. I got the front and back yards fully raked, and I dug up and replaced the drain extension on the side of the house. There is still some work to do there, though, so maybe I'll post a picture when it is completed. Other than that there is not much to be done outside yet. Kate has cleaned up the garden and planted a few things earlier this week. I'm still hoping she will take over the posting at the garden blog. I can take pictures easily but she would be better at describing what is happening back there. My posts tend to be short and dependent on the pictures I take.
Yesterday morning I coughed really hard and threw my back out again. I did go to work but left after a half day and took today off to try to recover. I have to go in tomorrow, I just have too much to do. Also, I have some time off later next week and I'm going to need to have some loose ends at work tied up and a good back to get done what I have in mind. Back problems never arise at a good time, there is no good time. I just do what everyone does - deal with it as best you can and carry on.
I'm 50-ish, happily married and child-free. My wife and I have a home near downtown Madison, Wisconsin since 2009. I am not on farcebook or other social media, only this blog. If you wish to reach out to me you may email me at email@example.com. I check it when I think of it, at least monthly.
