Bike! Groceries! 4.4.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:37 pm  

Another pleasant day in the ATL.


Studied Spanish. I also learn things about my language! The difference between “did you use to do” and “did you used to do” was something I never really noticed. With the helping word did, use is in the present tense.


Also did my brain training.

Long bike ride today of 22.62 miles. I was riding for almost 3 hours. Felt very strong. Tired now, though.

Always something beautiful to see. I went through all of my scripture and poems that I’ve memorized.

Then listened to radio from Madrid and Harry Potter in Spanish.

Picked up groceries for Walmart. They are still out of a lot of things. I’m using my new strategy of having them pack everything up rather than going inside the store.


While I was waiting for them to bring me my groceries, I noticed these concrete blocks. It reminded me of Kenya were all of the blocks were formulated by hand. Africans used a chisel and chipped them into shape.

I got gas for my lawnmower.

Came home and cleaned off all the groceries before bringing them inside. That’s a new protocol that I read we should do.

Also transported squirrel number 95 today.

I saw a map of the USA which was based on how far the owner of the cell phone had traveled. I was proud to see our area of Georgia around Atlanta to be one of the lowest areas of travel in America!

Yard Work! Podcast! 4.3.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:15 pm  

Another gorgeous day in the ATL. Beautiful weather.

I am continuing to use the Walmart grocery app to order and pick up my groceries rather than going inside the grocery store.

I did my Spanish study and brain training this morning.


I also have been watching several shows on Netflix in Spanish. I keep the Spanish subtitles on to help me understand everything they’re saying. It’s really accelerating my knowledge, in a fun way, too!



Another big day of yardwork today. I finished off my backyard, which was quite difficult since areas are very steep.

Picked up a lot of branches that were revealed after I mowed.

I also worked on my front yard to mulch the leaves that I raked together last week. It was a very hard job. I started without having eaten anything. After working a couple hours I was really tired and super nauseated. Feel better now.

I’m still filling a hole the construction guys dug when my house was built in the 70s. Everything you see here is organic. I’ve been filling it up for over two decades. The mushroom mycelium digests everything. I never burn.

I regularly sweep a carpet I have outside, which keeps stuff from being tracked inside.

I planted five sprigs of wisteria last year, they’re coming along well. One day, years from now, I hope to have those beautiful purple flowers in my trees!

I planted the third of my pink magnolia trees five years ago today.

I released a new episode of Verbal Surgery. It’s called “Stop Stomping.”
It’s the seventh in my series on dealing with the pandemic. Check it out!


The only things left from the Raptor Hide I built for my kids nearly 20 years ago. It even had a zip line!

Bank! Yard Work! 4.2.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 11:12 pm  

Absolutely beautiful day here in the ATL.

Wild flowers are gorgeous.

I did my Spanish and brain training this morning.


Worked on my mileage log for this month. Not much going on because of the quarantine.

I captured and released squirrel number 94 today. Tends to pick up during the Spring and the Summer. I never transfer anything during the winter.

Went to the bank to deposit a check.

Gassed up my car. A new protocol for me is wiping everything down before I touch anything. I even wipe off the touchscreen at the bank.

I have about a half an acre of land. It’s a major job to do yardwork.

I picked up carts full of fallen branches.

I actually pushed over two dead trees and put them in my compost pile.

I cleaned off all of the honeysuckle and other weeds from my fences.

Had to use a shovel sometimes just to get it all cleaned up.


I took down almost all of the treehouse I had built for the kids almost 20 years ago. I actually called it the “Raptor Hide.” It was very high and had a zip line that we could escape from dinosaurs. It was dangerous. Ashley broke her arm on that zip line, to my horror. When I saw her arm I almost passed out. That was weird because I’m a hardened news man and I’ve seen people literally cut in half that I didn’t bat an eye for but when my little girl had a broken arm I almost fainted!



Mowing is a challenge.

I basically mow a forest.

I did about 2/3 of the backyard. All the hard part. If all goes well I’ll finish it up tomorrow.

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:14 pm  

Colder weather today.

Rained 1/4″ yesterday.

I did my brain training and studied Spanish this morning.


Recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery.

I also released Verbal Surgery -748- Super Joy today! Terrific episode.

Rode my bike 15.19 miles. Quite a bit colder than it was yesterday.

Girls! Pizza! 4.31.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 5:41 pm  

Rainy and cool today. Major weather blew through.

Did my Spanish study and brain training.


Ashley and the grand girls came over today to do their laundry. Always fun to see them! I picked up some pizza for us to eat. Delicious!


The girls and Kathy and I enjoyed watching the live action version of Lion King. That was fun. Then they headed back to Chamblee. Sad to see them go!

Trapped and released a squirrel.

Just saying.

My plants are an endless source of joy.

Calls! Bike! 4.30.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:40 pm  

I had a great talk with my buddy Matt Hale last night. Always fun to hear from him.

Beautiful day.

I did my brain training and Spanish study this morning.




Reading Mind Over Mind.

Made some great calls.

Had fun talking with my buddy Amit Badiani as well as my Mom.

I went on a 15.70 mile bike ride.

My favorite part was smelling the wisteria in the air as I passed by the trees.

Parks were closed. Sad.

I loved the sunflowers.


I still find glass in my yard from the fire in 2008.

Research.

Tee hee.

Garden! Bike! Pick Up! 3.29.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:25 pm  

Mild.

I studied Spanish and did my brain training as usual for me.


Watched some of Westside Baptist Church this morning. Also Generation Church.

I worked on my indoor garden this morning. It really is a beautiful part of my life.








Rode my bike 14.74 miles.

Gorgeous outside.


Arch cloud.

I especially enjoyed looking at the Wisteria today. It’s fun to ride down the sidewalk and smell the different plants as you drive-by.


Here are a series of shots down roads were I have one of my routes. Looked like Walmart and Kroger were pretty full. Notice how hilly it is in the ATL.



All the soccer fields are empty. Wow.

Picked up groceries at Walmart.


I parked my car and had them put the groceries in my backseat, and was out of Walmart in about four minutes. Absolutely unbelievable. I can’t believe I wasn’t doing this a long time ago since it’s a free service if you’re buying more than $30 worth of groceries.

The cherry blossoms outside are blooming now. So beautiful.

I’ve been trying to identify a particular bird sound. I think this thrush or warbler made it. I still haven’t had a good look at him.

Interesting.

Two years ago at the Hypnosis conference in Brazil. I was the final speaker.

Pick Up! Bike! 3.28.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:06 pm  

I studied Spanish and did my brain training. I got the Muse to work properly so that was good.


Had a great talk with my buddy, Anthony.

Rinsed pollen off of my cars.

I went through all of the poems that I know and wrote them on cards. It becomes tiresome after a while to practice everything every day so I’m gonna put them on rotation. I know over 30 pieces of poetry. It takes around 30 minutes to quote it all.



A few shots of objects from my desk.


Several of my orchids are blooming right now.



I went on a 12.76 mile bike ride. Beautiful today.

Listened to Harry Potter in Spanish.

Picked up my groceries from Walmart. It’s the first time I’ve ever ordered it online and have them do it all. Sure was easier than going to do it myself! Just need to make sure you have over $30 of groceries to get the service for free.

Podcast! Bike! 3.27.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:34 pm  

It was a very warm day today. Up to 88°.


I studied Spanish this morning. My Muse device was having problems sensing Brainwaves today. I did my brain training, just without the technology attached.

Released a new episode of Verbal Surgery. For all the hippies out there, “Flower Power” is for you.


I downloaded the Walmart grocery app today. I ordered all of my groceries online. It was very easy. I set up a time to come by and pick it up: tomorrow 4-5 PM. I pay for it there. And it doesn’t cost any extra money! Which was amazing.


Replanted an aloe.

Went on a 12.77 mile bike ride today.


It was marvelous. The air was just perfect. Everything was so beautiful. Highly recommend bicycle riding during these crisis times.


It was so weird to look up in the sky this evening and only see one airplane with one contrail. Normally the whole sky is full of those. Our airport in Atlanta is the biggest in the world.

We finished the labels together and got the newsletters in the mail.

Got a box of donuts. Delicious.

Enjoying the book, Mind Over Mind.

Used some my high-tech oil on my bicycle chain today.

Rode my bike 12.70 miles.

So beautiful. Wisteria! I have five little plants I’m growing.



Cleaned and painted my shoes.
