I hate everything.
Started raining at 5:30 yesterday. Rained all night. Not raining at present, but that’s clearly up for revision at any moment. It’s basically supposed to rain and/or snow for the next 2/3 days. I just went for my long morning walkie while I could, already in a bad mood because I yelled at Laddie when he misbehaved (rabbit, not really his fault) just as I had blundered us into a bunch of gooey ash mud I should have known enough to avoid. My stump was sore yesterday because I was on it all day, and about 25% into the walkie I figured out I should have given it a miss this morning. Hell, I fixed the Jeep engine yesterday, a good shakedown and check for more dripping could have been an excuse. But the weather is supposed to be miserable for days and I wanted my walkie. And now I’m all sore again.
I’ll take solace in being pleased with myself for not lazying out on finishing the plumbing. I’m an old retired guy: Normally I wouldn’t bother with two projects in a day, but I had the means to finish them both and an incentive in the promised weather change. So now I’m going to clean off the reading chair and check out one of these OffGrid Magazines. Maybe it’ll teach me how to live off grid…
ETA: 8:37 am – aaaand it’s raining.
