This Friday I get my 2nd vaccine shot. The first one was painless, in fact I wondered momentarily if the nurse had just pretended to inject me (can’t imagine why a nurse would want to pretend, but that’s my brain for you), because I felt nothing at all. Possibly I’m just losing sensation in my arms.
I got a kit to grow sprouts in a jar and now I’ve harvested several bunches of them — alfalfa sprouts, broccoli sprouts, now mung bean sprouts. Soon I’ll get to setting up my Aero Garden hydroponic thing that was a gift, and it’ll have its own light and water source. These are both terribly easy indoor gardening items. The weather here keeps switching from warm to freezing, so I can’t plant outdoors yet. I may have killed my 2nd strawberry plant when it suddenly snowed overnight. It would be simpler if we had actual seasons, but what we have is more like that story “It’s a Good Life,” where a strange boy controlled the town’s weather and it would snow or be hot according to his whims.
During the days that were warm, I noticed white PVC pipes starting to be exposed in my lawn in 2 places. After reading online what they might be, I’m not too concerned, they’re almost certainly waste water, maybe one is drainage for the sump pump. I might get some dirt and cover them up so they don’t get cracked.
The groundhog was around early this year, but I may have chased her away for good by tossing some mothballs into the area she tries to hide, which has some digging. It’s sort of a crawl space at one corner of the house, and I was concerned that she’d dug too close to the foundation. I haven’t seen her since. The ammonia smell is pretty strong.
I guess that’s all the spring news here, so far.
