We’re supposed to have our first significant snow fall of the winter this weekend and we are not ready for it. It was just last week that we were running in the park in short sleeves (or at least I was). I’ve made sure our cars are ready for the winter and converted our door power equipment to snow removal mode. But, mentally, I’m not ready for snow. ‘Cause if its snowing in December, it will probably snow a lot before the winter is over. Obviously, we’ll service. But, we still won’t like it. Anyway, have a great weekend.
Today we are posting a short video clip made with Corel VideoStudio X10. It’s a big file to be so short. If it were longer it would need to be down-sampled. But, it was quick and easy to add a mosaic (pixilation) effect with the track motion filter. Unfortunately, it can’t do anything about the sound.
Because of the technical difficulties with our camera during this week’s photo session, I had to reach into the way back machine for today’s photograph. Fortunately, I didn’t need to reach back very far. This picture is from a week ago. I just upgraded to the latest version of PaintShop Pro so I had to re-configure my workspace since the everything reverted to the to the defaults. We hope that you didn’t have to work and were able to relax and enjoy the day. Have a great second half of the long weekend.
I do not think that I will be catching up on yardwork this weekend. The weather forecast calls for heavy rains on Saturday followed by near- freezing to below-freezing temperatures on Sunday. I’d like to say that we’ll be inside by the fireplace most of both days. Unfortunately, we’ve got outside chores to do that will keep us busy for many, many hours. And, unlike The Wife, I am not on vacation all next week. I mostly like to use my vacation when the weather is nice. But, that doesn’t mean that I’m not slightly jealous of The Wife who gets more vacation than I do. Stay warm, stay dry and have a great weekend.
Sunday wasn’t bad; mostly because The Wife and I were at the end of a short vacation. But I have been struggling all week with the time change. It’s easy to set the clock in an electronic device. Unfortunately for us, our internal clocks aren’t as easy to change. Hopefully we’ll be better adjusted next week. Until then, have a great weekend.
Sadly, winter is finally here. Sleet and snow are forecast for tomorrow with a chance of a cold rain on Sunday. I’ll be outside some; but, I won’t be having as much fun as I would if it was warmer. Typical late October weather. We were just hoping for another week (or too) of unseasonably warm temperatures. I think we’ll be inside drinking hot apple cider by the fire place a lot in the near future. Stay warm.
This weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny. Unfortunately, it may be the last one we have for a while. So, we’re going to get outside and enjoy it. This past summer went by in the blink of an eye. We’re hoping for a mild winter like last year; but, that doesn’t seem likely. This area is home; but, we are really not fond of the winter. Have a great weekend!
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.
Have a Great weekend.
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.
This is one of those rare weekends where I am going to be busy and The Wife is not. Usually, we have mostly the same stuff to do. So, we both are busy doing things or we both are relaxing. We’ve been having cool nights recently; but the days are still warm so long as it’s sunny which is a good thing since I’ll be outside a lot. Hard to believe that October is already here. Have a great weekend.
