As is evident from my prior posts, i finally froze my credit as everyone advised post Equifax negligence. If you were saying to yourself, meh, i'll get around to it once the mad rush is over, i had no issues with the system. It was odd to go from Transunion's click through account creating extravaganza (requiring looking up various values to prove i was me) to the new cretit reporting company Innovis. Innovis has apparently decided that immediate gratification isn't worth it and they will use the US mail to validate who you are. (I found they also do that when requesting a credit report, as well.)
Anyhow, adulting: check.
In yard work yesterday i began digging up the gladiolus which is where we want to extend the drive way. There are many many many. Anyone want peachy with pink accent gladiolus cormlets and corms? I've read that in the Carolinas they don't need to be lifted in the winter, and given how this patch has grown dense in the previous owner's neglect, these are proven through NC cold snaps. I don't know how well they'd manage through, say, a Colorado winter. I've completed digging up about half the patch and would be happy send them on. It's tempting to think of breeding hybrid glads, but who am i kidding: they are deer food. I'll never see seeds.
I should note, too, the plants are growing in brick hard clay.
In product recommendations: Luci. I bought a pair for camping some time back, and they are light and bright and solar powered. What more could you want? Well, the cool LED light is a pretty stark color. Recently i bought two more with a warm LED and a "flicker". It's a lovely replacement for candle flames.
