So far, this has been a good month. We’re slowly starting to forget the cold, dreary days of April. And, if we don’t have a thunderstorm pop up, we can get in the pool for the first time of the season sometime over the weekend. Plus, we’ve finally been able to row consistently on our normal schedule. That shouldn’t be unusual; but, this year, it has been. So, it’s good to be able to enjoy the spring both inside and out.
Since the video we made last week had better sound, we decided to do an encore this week. We won’t make videos every week; but, we want to take advantage of the situation while we can. The dial on our worn-out old camera didn’t weird out like it did a couple of weeks ago. So, everything was good. Enjoy
Since the spring noise seems to be reduced, we’re posting another video with sound. Hopefully, the new mattress will last longer than the previous one. I noticed that I could see the springs moving around on the bottom when I was carrying it into another bedroom. It was definitely time to get a new one. Have a great weekend!
We ended up going out of town for a long weekend so we only recently had the opportunity to make another movie. This time the camera did not stop recording unexpectedly. The springs in the new bed definitely make less noise than the springs in the old bed; but, more than we would like. Still, it’s an improvement. What do you think? We will be posting a longer video with sound on Friday.
We got a new mattress and foundation (box spring) this week and wanted to make movie and test the sound. Unfortunately, our camera ran for exactly 23-seonds before it stopped recording. It’s older and can be a bit fussy, especially if I don’t set the dial just right. But, stopping right at the beginning of our session today was especially frustrating. We will definitely try again. We were focused on other things. However, neither of us recall hearing nearly as much background noise. Hopefully, our sound problem is fixed for a while. Meanwhile, here is a first look at our new bed.
I am definitely ready for the weekend. Even more so than usual. I caught a cold on Monday or Tuesday week and by Thursday I was so tired, I didn’t even have enough energy to go get my new eyeglasses even though they were ready. I’m feeling better today; but, still more sick than well. Going to spend some quality family time and try to recuperate as much as possible. Have a great weekend. See you on the other side.
I’m not quite sure what our signature video topic for 20018 will be; but, right now, we serendipitously seem to creating, more high-quality videos. (Although the sound track still needs work.) Here is the continuation from Tuesday. It looks like, once again, it will be to wet to go out and play for a while.
We haven’t had any “spring-like ” weather recently; but The Wife and I are rowing once again. So, even though we need to wear a thick base layer, it’s the unofficial start of our spring. Here is a video of the two us getting the party started after we got home from one of our rows. It was a good day both on and off the water.
It’s a couple of months early; but The Wife’s 30th anniversary gift arrived today. It was hard to keep it a secret since I ordered it months ago. But, its her now and today was a very good day. I’m sure we’ll be posting more about it later. Have a great weekend. I know we will. And enjoy the show.
Here is more of the movie that we made. Not one of my better transcoding efforts. It was still fun to create even if a lot was lost in the process of re-encoding for the web. We still have our ongoing problems with sound. Our camera captures high-quality .AVI videos. So, our originals are usually a good starting point. And something fun to look back upon later.
