I went to my neighborhood association's meeting today because the guest speaker was talking about the plans to update I-35. I had a whole list of things to say to him, but found that he was saying virtually...just say that I can't believe that so many things have to be handled in these kinds of meetings.

I worked for about 75 minutes in the mostly-morning, and - Sowed yet another attempt at hot peppers, and three sorts of lavender, realizing only too late that lavenders need to be chilled to germinate...get the wildflower seeding of the deposed-bish bed done, but no. I did empty, clean, refill and rehang the second hummingbird feeder. That will probably be it until August on hummingbirds and feeders
This morning started with a wee bit of WFH, just enough to download ffmpeg from the company-blocked site, try it out, read enough of the html docs to know I wasn't going to master it in my lifetime. Took...two Breyers containers, which was about 4 scoops. Had to make room for the two new ones. Updated Windows and Evernote.

Chun Woo said he really liked weeding, and while I don't depend too much on it, I think he does enjoy doing a little gardening work along with me, and talking as we work.
