    My day consists of three phases, the exercise phase, the reading phase, and the food ingestion phase which we now approach. Like Groundhog Day, do it again tomorrow, the next day, the next day..
    We should definitely hang out. My life consists of those 3 phases as well.

    It's a wee bit of a grind, but overall I consider us very lucky that tedium is our primary problem...

    I have an exceedingly high threshold of boredom. I just found out in the last year that how I live my life is called "quarantine". You couple this with the fact that I have pretty eyes and an ugly face, so a mask makes me attractive...damn what a great time to be alive.

    I was social distancing before social distancing was cool.

    I'm fine spending a weekend in the house without anything specific to do. The minute that is the only option, I really don't like it.

    I miss restaurants and I miss the occasional vacation, but staying alive is good, too.

    Now, dear DinK, this may be that golden opportunity to tackle the attic. Shall I throw some clothes in my trunk and head west?
    Just think of the fun we could have dragging boxes to the curb!
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    No inside dining since March 12 in Knoxville the day everything shut down. Eating at restaurants is one of the thinga I love the most. I have done a lot of eating outdoors in my travels for work. Once it gets below about 50 degrees it loses it's charm. But I have enjoyed not dying.

    Yes, please. Of course, I still have to work and now I'm adding Saturdays to the work week.

    Local news did a story about a man in town that has one of those propane patio heaters. He takes it and a small table and 2 chairs and sits outside the restaurant for dinner. He was planning on doing 1 restaurant a week.

    I find places with outdoor heaters and I have upped my outerwear game. I detest eating in my hotel room when I travel.

    I'd look forward to it, too, if I just had to prepare my return.

    I'm assuming you are only filing yours and not lots of other returns.

    this is basically the only weather I won't walk five miles in: 33 degrees, hard rain, 25 mph wind. Ack. But a foot of snow coming tonight?

    BTW, making your own granola is pretty cost efficient. The packaged stuff in the store is usually priced at a premium; you can get 3-4X as much making your own for the same $, which is a perk.

    True. But then you're stuck eating granola. So that's the negative in this scenario. You could just make bacon.

    I did try bacon-wrapped granola. Yvon Chouinard personally tracked me down and slapped it out of my mouth.

    We do our hot breakfasts on Sunday.
