I drank last night. I didn’t get drunk but drank a decent amount and it was enough to make me sleep very poorly. I just don’t sleep that deep when I drink. Everything wakes me up. Last night it was several cars passing by waking me then the train that I normally sleep though. It has me feeling extremely tired today. I could almost go so far as to say I am feeling exhausted.
My session for today in the garage gym felt pretty good. It really was feeling better than I expected with it being so humid and also the fact that the air is hazy/smokey from both the humidity and Canadian wildfire smoke. It’s had my throat and nose feeling a little irritated so I did turn on the air conditioner. I would swear that at times I even got the slight hint of the smell of pine burning.
I’ve been taking it somewhat easy with my lifts since I didmy Crossfit total last week and then planned on and finally got around to getting a heavy single front squat and bench press yesterday. The front squats were somewhat disappointing yesterday but then again my stomach was still feeling off. I tend to eat a banana for breakfast and yesterday the one I ate was past it’s prime. Normally it isn’t a problem but shortly after I ate this one I felt like I got punched in the stomach.
Supper that we’d planned on having tonight wasn’t working out today so we decided to try something from the new Time 2 Eat place that just opened a week or so ago. I got a cheese steak. That’s my test of a new place to see what they call a cheese steak. The one I got today was just an amazing cheese steak. One of the best I’ve had here in Lancaster county.
I don’t know why but I keep hearing and noticing wrens around here this summer. Maybe they were common before and I just didn’t really notice them. I’m also noticing that I’m hearing a lot of cat birds singing which I don’t remember noticing as much before. The wrens though hare reminding me of going to Bonner’s with my grandparents. I spent many a warm or hot summer day outside playing there growing up and I don’t remember hearing many birds singing.
We love going to J.B. Dawson’s for their ribs and have really missed them during the pandemic. Every single time we’ve gotten the ribs their they’re always fall off the bone and taste great. Their options for sides aren’t really something I’m thrilled with but the cole slaw is good. The thing that that throws me off is they have three different price levels for them and even in the most expensive ones there’s not much I’m really thrilled with.
I have been thinking I might have been seeing a monarch flying around our milkweed plants n the patio but when I saw it I was either mowing the lawn or just didn’t have my monocular or phone to zoom in and see it. The lighting is pretty tricky for me out back with the trees and dark shadows contrasting with the bright sunshine so I find it hard to see them for now.
It was a nice day today and a surprise nice day at that so we just had to get out and go for a walk and grab a cache more. It wasn’t what I would call a nice day or anything like that but definitely a bit cooler and less humid than recent days. It was a tolerable day weather wise. Our caching wasn’t one of the most successful days but any day we can get out is a good day.
We had very heavy thunderstorms yesterday which made the air wetter than it already had been. Thankfully nothing in the league of that Bensalem Croydon had with the insane flooding. We did have a nice MCS move through in the middle of the night with strobe like lightning. It has been hot and humid and today is no exception to that pattern. We were doing some yard work, I was cutting the grass when it started raining from a blue sky.
For the past several years I’ve been doing challenges for my birthday when it comes up. Normally I’d do the burpee pull ups times my age since while the typical birthday burpees fro Crossfit suck I wanted to challenge myself. This year I decided to mix it up and do something completely different. I kind of have been having the goal of age times body weight for my birthday squats for a while.
