COVID-19 Hunker-down Log. Stardate 43995.29

Combating boredom. I’ve completed most of the deck refinishing with just a few areas requiring touch-up. Tonight, hot-tub!

Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be heading to Red Feather Lakes and will probably spend most of the week there exploring for moose and doing some landscape photography. It’s been a long time coming. I see cheeseburgers on the grill in my future.

Happy thought inventory. Sitting on the deck yesterday evening, watching the birds come in for slurps of water and the dogs playing in the yard. It occurred to me that as far as the house in Littleton goes, nothing in the yard is dead and nothing about the house is broken. How often does that happen?

Chatting with the wife. Life is better when one can focus on the good things in life and tune out all the nonsense beyond the fences. Suburban life is the life I’ve chosen. I have my escape from the city available and it’s time to take advantage of it. A person can spend their whole life working their way to retirement and have little to show for it. I’ve been lucky but I’ve also been smart, in that my plans and goals have worked out well enough for me to enjoy my “senior years” without having to deal with the corporate work world. I have my dignity and my integrity. The past is the past and I don’t dwell much on all the bad things that I’ve witnessed and endured. Can’t change a thing in that regard.

I think one of the key ingredients of a happy life is to always have something to look forward to.

Supply status. No worries

Weed inventory. Gonna head to the weed store today to get some stuff for this week at the cabin. Nothing like sitting on the deck in the mountains, watching the clear dark skies in Red Feathers, listening to some music and mellowing out away from zombie land.

Laundry status. Need to wash a load for the trip to Red Feathers.

No first-responder activity to report.

The hunkering down continues.

Still alive and well here in Denver.
