Lazy Sunday at Andes Tower Hills

“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” – Bertrand Russell

“So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being.” – Franz Kafka

“Time’s fun when you’re having flies!” – Kermit the Frog

Heyyo! Not much to report here on the flog this sunday. As often as we choose to work, today we did not. Here at Andes, we have been taking advantage of our time off. Sleeping in, breakfast begins around 10:30 (for me). We’ve become fond of the pesto-egg, which is exactly what it sounds like. Frequenting our dining room table are other Andes staples, like hash brown patties, raisin-bran in oat milk, and strawberry toaster tarts. If you’re like me, you’ll have too much coffee just to sit around, while Jo prefers an iced chai latte. Sadly, we missed Sophia for most of the day, as she took a day trip to sunny St. Cloud, Minnesota to run a few errands that even the metropolis of Alexandria could not fulfill. Geena and I took a trip to O’Reilly’s auto parts to buy motor oil (for my car) and to the liquor store, to buy Everclear (for the yellow pan-trap project, not consumption). Jo stayed home, found a bird (dead) and napped. The rest of the day consisted of youtube videos about ants, walmart donuts, and laying on the couch. We took some time to start the process of bleaching a deer skull, found and donated by Brittany, pictured below. Jo made some Penne alla Vodka, a recipe by GiGi Hadid, in which we used farfalle rather than penne. It was delicious. At night, we watched Mad Psycho and discussed chronic wasting disease, which I started to feel like I could be developing by lying about all day. Sophia, as I write this, is making mac and cheese for our 4th of July potluck feast tomorrow, and I’m beginning to get hungry again. I am excited to canoe tomorrow, equally excited for phenology. This day of rest has been much needed, however one day is enough.
