11:22 AM EST [Link] Green Thumb [comments: 0]
columb52619 (296k image)

Our Columbines are popping now. Who knew I had such a green thumb?! Unfortunately it looks like the butterfly bush in the front and the lupine we planted last year on the patio don't seem to be coming up, although the other butterfly bush in the back is. I will need to buy replacements for those and get those back in. Pretty bummed about the front butterfly though because that was doing so well last year. However, I did notice the purple roses we planted next to it last year is growing really well, as are the clematis climbing up the side of the house. Most things seem to be doing well.

I bought a new mower blade for the mower yesterday but I still need to get the old stubborn one off. Think I need to get some new tools or start working out because that thing is on super tight. At some point, I might just end up buying a new mower but I want to see if I can get some more life out of this old one before going that route, although I probably will soon anyway. Other pluses from yesterday was getting car inspected (it passed naturally), and cutting up our first watermelon of the season.

One of the robins is actually outside the nest now but still within the big pot that the mama built her nest in. Really won't be long now (picture or two forthcoming - actually have over a hundred pictures of the whole thing from egg to now - have to go through them and build a retrospective at the end). Sad that they'll be leaving, but they are kinda holding up work in that gardening area that I'd like to get to.

Got invited by friends this afternoon for some social activities, had to create an appetizer plate to bring with us...perhaps try out this Cards Against Humanity game as well...more later...

Update (8:10 pm): According to the live cam at 3:16:03 pm and at 7:27:40 pm , two robins spread their wings and fly out of the nest. Still one left. Kinda sad, but they have to go live their lives, right?

Last night, and just on a whim, a decided to play a lottery number. I generally don't play the lottery, mostly only at times when the Powerball or some such is at a high level, or as the case with this, when something strikes me. I just had a feeling about a number that came into my head, so I said, why not.

And wouldn't you know - it actually came out. I hit! Nothing gigantic mind you, comes out to about 100 dollars. Still it made it a pretty good day!

Another Sunday visit to the Sanctuary. Then it was off to get some more ground cover. I put in some vincas vines, hostas, marigolds, and lilies. We have one area in the back that has a tendency to grow nothing but weeds (it's sort of like a raised bed but was there from the old wooden open deck way toward the back), but hopefully we can get something better there. I weeded the area, added dirt, placed some hostas there, and finally mulched it up. I think it looks pretty good - hopefully things will take there. It's one area where I haven't had much luck but I think this might do the trick. Just need to stay on top of it. Meanwhile LD has been putting and arranging all the various flowers into planters and adorning the decks with their color. Starting to look amazing!

peahen051919 (226k image)

The baby robins have pretty defined markings on their feathers now. I know there were 4 eggs when we started but it seems like there are only three baby birds in the nest. They can eat worms like no tomorrow. Both parents frantically flying back and forth with treats in their beaks for the young.

Been watching season 2 of Cloak & Dagger. Pretty good, but I personally thought season 1 was better. Also, what, did they only film like 8 episodes? I saw there's only 2 left til the finale. Speaking of finales, I'd have to say that Law & Order SVUs finale was lame, as was Grey's Anatomy (which I don't watch, but LD does, so I end up watching with her).

Last couple of nights we've gone out for dinner, but tonight we made chicken, rice, and broccoli in the Instant Pot along with lunches and meal-prep for the week. It can be a little bit of a drag trying to psyched up enough to get going on meal prep, but once we get going, it's not bad.

Yesterday afternoon, LD saw that some yard sale that had ended was giving all the stuff that was still around to be free, so we took a little jaunt over there (same town) and found a little dresser/file drawer to be in really good shape. We took it - probably going to try to re-finish it so it matches the decor of the room she wants it to go in better. I think today might be another big gardening type of day!

Bikeride51819 (162k image)

This morning I got up, got ready, and headed down to Cambridge for this year's Spring Bike Ride. The theme this time was waterways so the route passed by many existing and previous waterways throughout the city, and with a brief stop at the Water Works Plant where they talked about the city's plan for climate change etc. The building,which is like a museum, is simply beautiful inside. The map on the large tiled floor that takes up the entire lobby is actually a map of all the water lines running throughout the entire city and not the street network. I tried to take a few pics as I was riding, bit that's not so easy to do. I did bring along my little Powershot (there's no way I could lug my dSLR around to take shots). It was a fun, leisurely ride - ended up being about 13 miles and lasted a couple of hours. At the end, we had Bon Me on the house (I chose the Pork sandwich - I don't usually eat ethic food like that but this was actually pretty good). I didn't win anything at the raffle at the end though. I like going on these rides because I like to learn about history, but especially about local history. Plus today's weather is simply gorgeous. As usual, we had the Police Bike Patrol with us, so traffic and cars were pretty much a non-issue, which is nice. You haven't lived 'til you bike down Fresh Pond Parkway on a bicycle with no traffic. Other folks were taking pictures from the Bicycle Committee so maybe I'll show up in some, and if so, I will share them.

Cool game! - Colors of Your World.

In other news a bought a graphic novel yesterday called GenderQueer which details the life of a person who is asexual and needs different pronouns and such and eir journey (see what I did there?). I have a hard time separating gender from sex in my thinking so I thought maybe this would help me to understand these concepts a bit more, although since my brain isn't wired that way I have a hard time understanding. I mean just from an administrative standpoint this would be a nightmare.

Also, today was Bike To Work Day at work, so if I can find it, you'll be seeing a picture of me sporting my new orange fanny pack (which might have come handy for when I visit the new Wynn Casino in a month, but I digress -admittedly, it is a little disappointing of a product).

The sun is finally re-appearing! Which is good, because I rode my bike in today. Riding it in tomorrow too, at work they're doing some bike-to-work day breakfast-thing for folks who do it, so I shall partake it that. Also planning on riding Saturday for the city bike tour. I've done that a bunch of times and it's always fun.

On a different note with whats being on in the news here's a comic about The Jane Collective. I actually learned about them through an old episode of Cold Case believe it or not. Some of the episodes of that show actually did take on some interesting issues of the times looking back on it now.

09:01 AM EST [Link] Mother's Day Cruise Part 2 [comments: 0]
boat51419 (164k image)

I think we all had a good time on the Mother's Day Cruise around Gloucester Harbor on Sunday. The meal was really good, plenty of choices and pastries - my mom really liked the fish, so I think my Mom really enjoyed herself. It was fun to do something different. I went out on the deck a couple of times to grab some Harbor pics. Still processing a bunch of those. Will they all see the light of day? Probably not, but some will be posted over time. I got some better pics of the Manufactory this time. What's amazing to me is that the place looks so run down, slats falling off the sides, exposed wood, etc. - for something so historic you'd think they'd keep it up a little better. Meanwhile there's a new development being built just behind it. Crazy.

Three of the robin eggs have now hatched - only one left to go! Poor Momma Robin in the rain - she does this amazing thing in the nest where she spreads out her wings (reminds me of Batman) and uses that to cover the children. You can see the rain bead off her feathers. Pretty amazing to watch. And then the father also helps out by swinging by every so often to help feed her. Unlike some birds, I find these robins to be pretty darn fine parents.

Oh! I forgot to mention that LD and I, while at the theater, saw 'The Diddler' also enjoying the movie. I think I've mentioned this guy before. He got the name around town because he's always walking around with his hands in both pockets and jiggling change all day long. Anyways, he was there with a friend and seemed to having a good time. I'm glad he got a buddy - he always seemed so lonely to me due to his strange behavior. I also noticed he didn't have any change this time!

01:56 PM EST [Link] Where It All Began [comments: 0]
Jackattack (75k image)Last night was the night of the free movie tickets I had won to see One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest in 35mm on the big screen down in Davis Square, so we had a little date night. Kinda cool to see it in this format - the same format the Oscars use to archive films, which I believe is what this was on loan from the Academy. Just before that we went to a restaurant in the square where LD and I had our very first date, so it was a little like a late anniversary dinner. The meal was really good too, so it all worked out great. The theater is actually showing all of Jack's old movies in this format, but just by chance this is the showing that I had won. Gotta say, the film is a classic, although can be a little depressing. And that damn Nurse Ratchet! What a bitch! By the time we got home it was well after 11pm, but just as we got into the house it started pouring rain outside. We made it back just in the nick of time!

Today was spent making the most of the day by trying to get a bunch of yard work and plantings done. Did some mowing, put down some new mulch (got most of the back patio done - really want to do the patch along the sun room, but that robin is having her babies there so I'm gonna have to wait to do that side until after they've flown the coop, so to speak - watching her has been fascinating!), starting planting some lettuce in the raised beds, picked up some more leaves (unfortunately one of my leaf scoops snapped and broke - gonna see if I can get another one in a few). Also pulled out all the pots from winter storage so LD can do her thing and arrangements of flowers adorning the decks. I must say she does a wonderful job! I really like how they come out. I also need to get the pumpkin seeds from 'Sean the Pumpkin' out from the storage. Like to see if we can grow his progeny.

Well, I did it. Pedaled at the way in for my first ride of the season. Little winded, and some muscle memory needs to return, but overall, feel really good! I love my bike, I've had it since about '94 and it's still in fairly good shape, but maybe it is time for a new one. Maybe something lighter like a cruiser as my mountain bike is pretty heavy. I'm not that serious a rider, just something to get me around town. My mountain biking days are over, I basically just use it as a commuter bike these days. We'll see. I'd also love to get an adult tricycle at some point.

In the meantime, enjoy this pic of me explaining to some goats about life from about 2 years ago:

Also good job to the Bruins heading to the Eastern Finals, and sorry, but the Celtics suck and are probably done.

After work today I dug out the bike because I wanted to give it a test ride since it's been in storage since last early October. The derailleur is still broken and the chain skips every now and then (I still haven't addressed this - just lazy and cheap) but I am able to ride it. Just had to pump up the tires a bit! I'm hoping to ride it a bunch over the next few weeks - back and forth to work, and possibly on the Cambridge City Bike ride. I do it because traffic in town is particularly bad now with all the construction and bridge closures but also for some much needed exercise.

Been so rainy and grey up here lately decided to put up a pic from a time when the sun actually came out. It's actually a shot from outside the Cliff House up in Maine from a few months ago that I had sitting around. Did get to do a bunch of yard work today though. Some more plantings, but more than that, I finally popped on some plastic leaf grabbers which look like flippers and I have to say, that it really works like a charm. I had 5 bags full of leaves from the outdoor patio in no time! Wanted to do more but then it starts drizzling again and I have to stop. Little by little things are sprucing up! We also laid down some grass seed which we're hoping will take to fill in some bare spaces.

Nothing like waking up and noticing that the contractors next door have these giant pieces of machinery blocking your driveway so you can't get out to work! Actually, they were cool about it and moved it fairly quickly. Apparently the truck driver was ready to take this bulldozer/digging like machine away but they wanted just a little more digging. They said they were going to get the foundation in today. I'm like, really? That fast? The plan calls for 4 underground parking spaces although I must say that's going to really tight there. Have to check it out later when I get back.

Last night I discovered my universal remote seemed to have died. I could turn the set on and off but couldn't change any channels. Basically I couldn't select Cable to access the set top box. I also dicked around with the old remotes but they didn't work and even used some app that was on my phone that allows you to control it but every option just didn't recognize the setup for whatever reason. Then I just threw in the towel for the day because I just didn't care by that point to go on. So I guess I'll be on the lookout for a new remote, it gets a little limiting being stuck on only one channel (the last one I had it set to before the collapse). Just as well, I read a little, and went to bed early.

Update: I'm back in business now! Just in time to see the B's and C's lose. Groan!!

Got some yard work done yesterday, and planted a few things. More later. Also booked a cruise in Gloucester for Mother's Day with LD and my mom - hopefully that'll be good.

We noticed there's two eggs in the nest now, and the momma is spending more time sitting on them. She does tend to dissappear every now and then leaving the eggs unattended. Hopeful that everything will work out.

We also went grocery shopping, and preparing for a planned night out with friends tonight.

Back from the show last night - not really my type of tunes, but Kris can still pull them over. The venue itself isn't all that bad either - pretty much like the Lynn place. He didn't waste anytime - just one song after another. I would have liked some stories, but whatevs. I mean, I had forgotten this, but he was Wesley Snipes' partner in the Blade vampire hunter movies! I did it all for my mom, she really liked him in A Star is Born. She had a good time, that's all that really matters!

Other notes: I've been cutting way back over my soda intake over the last couple of weeks. I might have a can on the weekend, but that's about it. Trying to get a little healthier. I thought I would crave it more but i actually haven't been. Definitely feel a bit tireder though without the caffeine, It's a adjustment. Garden blooms are starting to pop around here giving us the planting bug. So far I can see that the clematis is rising, tulips, hyacinth and daffodils are popping, chives are rising, etc. I also plan on attending another city meeting over the (staggering!) increased water and sewer rates that are coming down the pike. Should be interesting.

She always liked him in A Star Is Born so that's what I'll be doing tomorrow night. I didn't realize it at the time, but did you know that he is 82 years old now? And still making music - pretty incredible. Not really our style of music but it'll be a fun excursion.

And then I learned that my favorite local band of all time is getting together this summer for a show - they haven't played in over a decade just about. Damone! Definitely going to check that out. They actually shared a photo of me wearing their concert T-shirt on their social media - Thanks Noelle!

Today was a much more low key day. After going out for brunch at the Baypoint down in Quincy with our couple friends for a couple of hours, it was basically some grocery shopping, meal prepping, and getting caught up on the DVRed shows, which is just as well as it started raining for the remainder of the day.

Spent much of the day yesterday hanging out at the Sanctuary (it was pretty busy there today) and then heading down to Bristol, RI to get in some ocean sights. We also took a hike down to the bay, and took a bunch of photographs. We had a nice early dinner down there as well. Some highlights from this day trip were the alpacas at the sanctuary were particularly friendly this time around, we hiked down to the bay along a boardwalk surrounded by reeds and cattails, we also saw an osprey in a tree consuming a fish it had caught, saw a bunch of wild turkeys sunning themselves, and just exploring around to see anything that looked cool. All in all, a full, tiring, but wonderful day.
