It was really pleasant to come home before 2000 last night. My copy of the record of Laymen Pang arrived too. (Thanks for the hint on that Yamakoa.)
I got a chance to fire up the grill and cook some short ribs... Yummy!
After dinner the weather was so nice I decided it would be a good chance to catch up on the pond. The kids (and I) would really like to be able to see the fishies swimming around in there. But the blue dye I put in there to deter airborne predators is preventing that at the moment. We did see a couple as they came towards the top and nibbled at some algae. I did do a 10% water change and also switched out the filter. I did not rinse the bio balls off since I think that you are supposed to leave all that stinky stuff on there... Still can't see the fish unless they are swimming towards the top though. Boo!
Everyone sat together for evening office, ZMI even joined me in doing prostrations. She is a quick study. Read some more TNH to the kids before going to sleep.
Morning office I conducted alone as usual and ate breakfast then woke ZMH for the second sitting. ZMI and the mom decided to sleep in this morning. ZMH was having some trouble staining awake and the last five or so minutes of sitting ended up as lap zen. Always nice to get a blast of loving kindness in the morning.
Listening to Alan Watts podcasts on the way to work. I know he gets a bad rap from some folks, but he was certainly an effective speaker.
Arriving at work I hit the gym for the first time since I got sick, it is good to be back. I am getting close to the bubble on weight so it might be time to start stepping it up a notch. (I know, I know, crossfit... sorry but I don't think that is gonna happen for me.)
Anyway I got to go count stuff and document the counting of stuff. Joy!
