We are definitely ready for the weekend. Its supposed to be warmer; but, wet and rainy. Better than cold and snowy but not nearly as good as hot and sunny. I don’t expect the weather to be warm enough to get out and row every January and February. But, there have been a lot of days where I needed my big coat. It’s probably wishful thinking; but I put the snow suit I wear to shovel back in the basement. We’ll see if I was being overly optimistic. “Light” snow is forecast for Monday. Here is a higher quality video than what we usually post. Have a great weekend.
I got my car back this week. They did a good job except for the delay while they waited for parts. It was weird not driving a smart car. I hadn’t realize how accustomed to technology that I had become. I drive our other cars regularly including a 20-yrear old sedan. But, the loaner seemed primitive considering it was a 2018. I was so glad to have it back that I just drove around while I updated the maps for the GPS. Our next vehicle purchase a long way off. But it’s definitely going to have as many if not more features than the one we have now.
Our vacation was great. But, like always, it came with a cost. I am still working even though it’s late Friday evening. And I have work to do tomorrow. Plus, it snowing so I’ll have to shovel the driveway too. I’m hoping that I can get everything done and relax on Sunday. Especially since I Monday is not a holiday for me. Have a great weekend. We hope that yours is a three-day one.
The Wife and I will be on vacation the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day as will not be posting until January. We will be around. Just super-busy with several important things going on. We should post again in a couple of weeks.
Until then. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Ordinarily, this would be a great day because it would be the start of our Christmas vacation. Now, its “just” another Friday. Not bad; but not as good as if we had a long vacation to look forward to. And, I’ve still have shopping to do for Christmas. I’m not a last-minute shopper; but typically, I’ve waited until I’m on vacation. It used to be so I could shop during the day when I was off and the stores weren’t so crowded. But, there’s not really a reason now. Have a great weekend.
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.
