Fact: Over a lifetime, the average person spends about 90,000 hours at work. Before the age of 40, Americans hold between seven to eight different jobs. Every year, the average American spends over 100 hours commuting. The average office chair with wheels travels about eight miles per year.
I got up early, and Mary was still sawing logs. When she did get up, around 7:00 AM, she was feeling poorly. The periodontist released a mess of “germs” on Friday, and she is feeling the results today.
At 10:00 AM, I did a Walgreens run and got some meds for MAry. A quick stop at Starbucks gave Mary a latte and three eggs; breakfast was served.
I spent the day working in the yard with our handyman. We installed a motion-sensitive light over the new garden and ran electricity to the gazebo in conduit buried in the ground; the extension cords just bothered me.
I move a mess of tools from the He-Shed to the new Rubbermaid locker adjacent to the garden; now, they are pretty convenient.
The grass is coming along fine! In another month, we may be able to mow it and begin getting rid of the weeds.
The 2,000-lumen LED lights do an excellent job lighting the garden and are pretty sensitive. These lights are the equivalent of 130W incandescent lights.
I don’t usually tell people about my light puns. I like to keep people in the dark.
I went to a Chinese restaurant, and the lights were too bright. So I requested if they could dim sum.
I called Bob Z. and told him we would not make the dance tonight as Mary was still reeling from Friday’s ordeal.
Dianne made her version of chicken noodle soup and brought it over to Mary. Dianne also brought bread and chocolate cake! I will undoubtedly feel better.
After she departed, we had a quick dinner and went back to bed for Mary. I continued working the yard until 6:00 PM when it was too dark to see. I tested the security light, and it worked. Most people are shocked when they discover how incompetent I am as an electrician.
I took a quick shower and headed for bed; it’s been a long and busy day. I quickly looked at my phone and logged 6,000 + steps, mainly from the garage to the backyard.
