weekend update

It was a busier than usual weekend for me. Yesterday, I had a bunch of things on the calendar. First, I walked dogs at the shelter, which I do pretty much every Saturday. We haven’t been having much of a turnout lately (hopefully it will pick up once the weather is nicer), so I had to leave before everyone was walked. I felt bad, particularly since my walking partner ended up staying until 1pm to walk everyone (we started at 9am).

I had to leave because I had plans to meet my friend Carol for lunch at Tap 814. I’ve seen her briefly once or twice during the pandemic, but this is the first quality time we’ve spent together since then. Interestingly enough, the last time we went out was right before the pandemic shutdown in March of 2020. Also at Tap 814.

Last night, I went to a volunteer appreciation BBQ at the shelter. They got food from Red’s Texas BBQ. It was pretty good and it was nice of them to host it.

Other than that, I’ve been doing some yard work. It’s brush pickup week in my township, so I’m trying to get the bulky stuff out to the curb so I don’t have to take it to the township’s brush pile myself.
