Thought I'd share my appreciation of a little pot......

In quarantine and in the middle of nowhere. Not a visible neighbor. By myself. I recently moved back to my home in ME. - open, because my ex, who lived there...died last February. Anyways, as a guy celebrating his 67th birthday tomorrow, I want to share my routine.

Wake up....depends when I go to bed

Next and always foremost, watch my backyard and contemplate. I have 50 mi views to the western mountains of Maine and an open 3 acres to watch the wildlife (deer/turkeys/grouse/coyote). When the snow goes, I'll be spending more time wandering the property....I spent 12 years thinning/de-limbing lots of trees in developing discrete walking paths/cc trails that are probably 1-1.5 miles long.

Make coffee, smoke a butt, Turn on NSMBC, read DU. Another coffee and another butt.

Next 3-9 hrs. - my business.

Then, Eat something.

Talk with my best friend, love of my life, and significant other in MA. She's in hospital medical records, so she's got her own professional stresses plus her daughter tele-med PA), son-in-law (5th yr residence in NY Hospital), and 3YO are decamped for a 10+ days at her small place. SIL was sleeping at his hospital every night...virtually on call, all of the time......he's from the DR. One of the smartest dudes I have ever met.

Check work stuff.....

Eat something, again. Just made a salad that will be good for 4 servings this week.

Have a glass or 2 of wine - or a few Sam Adams Lager. Smoke a 1 hitter. Looks like a cigarette and you pack a single hit to the tip. Take multiple hits*.

It's damn efficient and puts me in that frame of mind to post on DU. Intellectual discourse, hopefully.

Go to bed.

* Pro-Tip The drawback of this pipe is that tar eventually plugs up the delivery system (cigarette-pipe. Use a 3/32" drill bit to clean both ends. Ignite drill bit to clear tar and heat to melt the tar in the tube. Good as new.

1. Nice routine...

Amateur Tip...the tar can be cleaner out of the one hitter with a paper clip too!

May life continue to treat us all as well as can be!

2. Ha! That is so time consuming!

You are not clearing the pipe, your just moving the stuff from one end to the other. Serious, try my method and report back. The drill bit will always have tar on it, so that's the bit to use for this job only.

3. Good routine

I'm 60 and although I don't have your views I work from home and have a nice yard.
30-50 mg edible on a empty stomach, wait 30 minutes (shower) have coffee. Wake and bake.
Work 3-4 hours, have a meal.
Time of day for these activities varies. I might start at 6am or noon.
Finish chores and work, another 2 or 3 hours, smoke a pinch or two take a nap.
Evening chores, a meal, a few hits, a few hours of entertainment, a few more hits, off to bed.

I've used the drill, but I slipped once and that was the end of that. The top of the dryer still bears the scar. At least it wasn't me.
I use a pick for cleaning nuts to clear the chamber portion and a stiff brush, bought in a head shop, to clear the barrel. I do that every day and soak it, the tool and brush once a week in alcohol to deep clean.

Zen and the Art of Pipe Cleaning....why not? We have plenty of time to do it properly.
