August 2022

Hi everyone, How's your week going so far? We're plugging away at the moment. No luck at the bookstore yesterday. Maybe next week. I had a negative COVID test yesterday and would now describe my symptoms as feeling like allergies, so things are still moving in the right direction. It was a little brutal running errands in yesterday's heat and humidity. However, BDH and Little Buddha say we're going to top out at around 80 degrees today, which is great. I just need to take care of one or two things today before Boston is overrun by everyone who is... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Still not working at peak capacity yet, but I finished yesterday's errands before it got too warm, so that was productive. However, BDH and Little Buddha are now telling me today is the same forecast, with a mid-afternoon "real feel" of 94 degrees. That's unfortunate. The good news is that the guys say the high temperatures go back to being more reasonable tomorrow as September approaches. I'll just have to be sure not to push it too hard and stay hydrated. Of course, the first task after we're done here is to check out the... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back for the first of our final few gatherings in August. What a crazy month. It got off to such a great start with meeting David Tennant, and then things went sideways real fast, thanks to stupid COVID. It basically feels like I have a head cold at this point, so things are still slowly moving in the right direction. I managed to take care of several errands yesterday, and there's more on the to-do list today. BDH and Little Buddha don't want me running around too much, but they say that it's going to be hot...

Hi everyone, How's your weekend going so far? No complaints on this end. Still taking it pretty easy, although I continue to feel better. We've moved from something resembling a sinus infection to more of a lingering cough and fatigue. Progress! I finally had some extended garden time yesterday for what felt like the first time in forever. That was great for my spirits, right up until the part where I got dizzy, but hey, you take what you can get. BDH and Little Buddha say the temperatures should be pretty reasonable today, so I'll be back playing in the... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's on tap for the weekend? I'm sure we'll keep things quiet on this end, because I'm still not 100%. (However, things are definitely moving in the right direction.) One way or another, I'm going to get some garden time. I don't care if that means sitting in one spot for an hour. I've had minimal time playing in the dirt this month, and that's about as lousy for my head as COVID has been for the rest of me. BDH and Little Buddha say that's fine, as long... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? We're just plugging away here at the moment. Still dealing with what feels like a sinus infection. However, it's slowly trending in the right direction, so all I can do is be patient and stay hydrated. My hope is to be able to at least sit and do some light gardening this weekend. Between the heatwave and being sick, I feel a little ripped off this month. At least the plants got some solid rain earlier this week. BDH and Little Buddha made me promise to continue taking it easy over the next few days,... Read more →

Hi everyone, How's your week going so far? Still taking it one day at a time here. Like I told Dad Clutter last night, it's an odd disconnect to feel 90% better than I did before, but yet have to remember that I'm still sick. However, a basic sinus infection is a breeze compared to where I was at a few days ago. BDH and Little Buddha are making sure the to-do list is as short as possible for the time being, and that I continue to stay hydrated. Those two are awesome. We decided there's still room for coffee... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? It's been a rough stretch here, friends. My luck finally ran out, and I tested positive for COVID at the end of last week, although the symptoms started before those results. I can't begin to remember the last time I was so sick. Intense body aches from head to toe, violent swings between chills and a fever (also have no idea the last time I had one of those), and all of the congestion issues one could ask for, but never would. It put me on my backside and said, "Just stay there... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back. How are you? Things went south after we said goodbye here yesterday. I was so excited to go for my first post-heatwave bike ride in a few weeks, I didn't really notice that I wasn't feeling 100%. However, by the time I got back, it was clear something was wrong, and I was sick as hell by bedtime. The COVID-19 test came back negative, so that's good, but this is still no fun. BDH and Little Buddha are fine, of course. We had a staff meeting at 3;00 this morning and decided we would still check... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? I didn't have any luck at the bookstore yesterday. There just hasn't been anything that feels like a good fit for BDH and Little Buddha. I may have to try another store to see if that makes a difference. The weather forecast called for rain all day today, but now it's not supposed to start until later this afternoon, so we'll see if it happens at all. Either way, we'll still probably make this a quiet day in the office and maybe recharge a bit to prepare for the back half of the week. In... Read more →
