Hello, welcome to #weekendcoffeeshare. It appears the weather has turned the tide today. It was 90-degree-Fahrenheit (32-degree-Celsius) 2 days ago and it’ll only make it to around 63-degree-Fahrenheit (17-degree-Celsius) today with rain (hopefully).
I keep thinking I need to harvest my vegetables before they bolt or send up a tall shoot with lots of flowers. Some of my veggies already has, like that of my broccoli raabs below. It’s pretty much inedible after that because the leaves become very bitter. Thankfully, the broccoli raabs are still so far edible. So I thought, harvest, store in the fridge, and consume when I can.
I hate to say it but I think I grew too much leafy green veggies, which most only thrive in cooler temperatures. This year’s weather has been too weird.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I spent this week eating most of the baby bok choy, which, according to the bottom left photo, aren’t so baby anymore. Still, they are pretty tender. I hope the cooler temperatures of this weekend will slow the bolting of these veggies. You might be able to see in the photo that the bolting has begun. I’m thankful the lettuces hasn’t begun bolting. That should give me a little more time.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you it’s a long weekend here in the U.S. My weekend started yesterday when I had elected to take the day off. So I have a 4-day long weekend.
My paid-time-off is once again capped, which means no more accumulation until I use some of it. I have a total of almost 32 vacation days (weekends don’t count) right now and I get 5.34 hours accumulation every 2 weeks. By my calculation, I need to take at least 2 days off per month to keep it from capping. I’ve already taken 4 days off in May (including yesterday), so I should be okay for now.
It isn’t that I don’t want to take time off. It’s just there’s not much to do. According to the local news, a couple of the nearby counties have upgraded covid transmission risk to medium. Then, there’s the high gas prices, and flying doesn’t sound good at all. I’m not interested in sitting in a metal tin can in the sky. So what else to do then to stay home?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I am revamping one of my old blogs and moving some of the blog posts to empty my storage for this blog. Despite upgrading to 6 GB, I am down to my last 30% and as someone who’s overly anxious, anything below 50% makes me anxious.
I will be moving old posts – anything prior to 2020 – new stuff will still be here. I will have more information later. So far, I only have the name – This is Another Archive. Get it? This blog is This is Another Story? That one is This is Another Archive? It’s okay if you don’t.
I appreciate you stopping by and reading this week’s #weekendcoffeeshare, hope to chat again same time next week.
