An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
On Saturday, it appeared that my grass would be shorter than that of my next-door neighbor who is obsessed with cutting his grass. But, he came outside an hour before sundown and mowed and edged. We enjoy our space; but, sometimes, I wish I could cut my lawn that quickly.
With the weather turning colder, I placed an order for cold weather workout gear. It will be nice to have; but I was waiting as long as possible. Psychologically, it’s kind of like closing the pool.
Switching to a more flexible workout schedule is both good and bad. Its good because I can get outside when the weather is better rather than at a pre-determined time. Its bad because its much easier to let myself get stuck at work.
I just had another birthday. The older I get, the faster the years go by. It was a good day. I just wish it didn’t seem like my last one wasn’t that long ago.
It’s not quite over; but we seem to have survived Friday the 13th with no mishaps. Looking forward to a typical Saturday (and Sunday). We’ve got a lot of chores. But; we still plan to enjoy the last warm day is in the weather forecast. It’s likely the last warm, sunny day we will see until next spring.
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. I’m only mildly superstitions; but, I still like to be careful on unlucky days. Intellectually, I know there is no such thing and any bad luck is coincidence. But, I would rather avoid any coincidences. … Continue reading →
We just replaced our deskside shredder which broke over the weekend. It’s quieter even though it’s the same model which is probably why the old one broke. We didn’t realize the motor in the old one had gotten so loud. That’s the way of things; but I still don’t like unexpected surprises.
We had a great weekend so it was hard to get back to the grind on Monday. And today I had to run the errands that I would have done yesterday if it wasn’t; a holiday. So, Tuesday was like … Continue reading →
I just upgraded a WordPress plugin which totally broke this site. I had to delete and reinstall in order to get things working. I knew what caused the issue so it was easy to fix. But I wonder about all of the people who have automatic updates turned on. They would have had no idea what happened. Anyway, here is another video to kick off the weekend. It’s not a long weekend for us; but we still have a busy couple of days planned. Have a great, and hopefully three-day weekend.
Now that it is finally working, our upgraded internet service does make it easier to upload video to this blog. And perhaps we can do a few things online that we didn’t have the speed to do before. We won’t be able to use the cloud like people on the coasts. But it should make the things we can do more efficient.
I changed/upgraded my internet service over my lunch break. Of course our home didn’t have any connectivity until I got home and installed the new equipment since they deactivated the old equipment even though they weren’t supposed to. Fortunately, The Wife was taking the afternoon off. I really can’t understand why service providers make things so difficult for their customers and themselves.
The Wife and I have been busy enjoying the summer and haven’t had time to experiment with ways to reduce background noise in our videos. So, we’re posting a silent movie. Obviously, that’s not the long-term solution; but, it has been a while since we posted a video. It doesn’t make up for the lack of sound but the video is higher resolution than normal.
