I went outdoors this morning and drenched my wife's potted plants. I used the little green watering can devoted to that purpose. I also spread birdseed for the birds on the little stone bench. I got a late start to Weight Watchers. I made up the time by walking in small Green Park near my home. Immature American Robins abounded. August is the least bird-ful month in our area. The nesters are largely finished with their nests. Only the first hints of migration are in evidence. Lots of birds are in the shade, hiding from the heat. Some form feeding flocks which flock about. Still, Green Park was fairly active.
At Weight Watchers I was up .4 pounds. That is immaterial. I walked in Hoblitzelle Park. Then I went to church at Suncreek UMC. I liked the sermon, about expectations. I thought about someone whom I perceive cloaks his or her thin self-confidence with a bluster of narrative. I thought to myself how my outlook was too harsh on the person, who faces severe and difficult challenges I do not face. I felt badly about how judgmental I have been, and realized that I should stop being that way.
In the afternoon, I got my oil changed on my car. The oil change came with a power wash. My car was not empty so I asked them to do the outside only. I liked the pattern of the soap on my window.
I also I had a good call wiith my sister, and a great call with my wife. I picked up some food to make for dinner.
I wanted to cook some of the blue potatoes I bought in Oklahoma. I cut the little new potatoes in half, and added in broccoli crowns.
I put both in a plastic container, and covered it with plastic. I then microwaved it to "steam" the vegetables. As the container cooled, I heated the cooked ham steak, after Google answered my question directly when I asked Google Voice how long I should microwave it (its advice was 5 minutes, but I thought it was ready in 3). The meal tasted great. The blue potato flesh was a bit blue.
I went for an evening walk in Glendover Park. I saw lightning in the distance.
