As it always does this time of year, sunset is happening earlier and earlier. But, what’s slightly depressing is that even when the sun is still up, its not as high in the sky. So, it’s much darker an hour … Continue reading
Here is a picture showing how much sun The Wife has gotten this summer and especially this past weekend. It’s either been cool and rainy or hot and sunny with no in between. Unlike past Augusts I’ve mostly needed to cut the grass every weekend. The rain is good for the yard. Even if it is somewhat unusual. (I will not be cutting the grass twice a week like my next-door neighbor.)
The new refrigerator got delivered today. It cooled down MUCH faster than the old one, even compared to when the old one was working. We’re just waiting for it to make the first bucket of ice (which we’re supposed to throw away) before it is fully functional. The new one is a lot nicer than the old one. We just hope we will not be unexpectedly buying anything new for a while. It is definitely not fun having to purchase an emergency replacement.
Our “broken” refrigerator can keep things cool so long as we don’t open it. So, we’re using it for a few items that don’t fit in the other one. Until the new one arrives. We’ve had a LOT of things break this year. So, in addition to spending a bunch of money, we’ve often found ourselves waiting for the new ones to get delivered.
Now that we have a new air conditioner, the hot, humid August weather that we have is a lot less stressful. I always used to worry about whether the AC was going to survive the heat or if we would … Continue reading
We have a busy weekend planned since we can never get enough warm summer days. Sometimes, I think we are too busy. Then I remember what it’s like to be stuck inside during the long, cold, snowy winter. These days can be hectic. But, later, when we look back, we wouldn’t trade them for any thing.
Have a great weekend. We will see you on the other side.
Here are a couple of pictures from the second group. Unfortunately, the is not much in between when positions were reversed since I didn’t; notice right away, that the camera was not taking pictures and I wouldn’t have stopped and … Continue reading
Our camera died after only a handful of photos. I restarted it after a while but we did not get as many pictures as we would like. Unreliable equipment is annoying. Especially when it’s something simple like interval shots. When I set it up the second time, there were no issues. Anyway, here is a cute picture from the first group.
I updated the database that supports this blog two major versions in order to resolve a bug with another update. Presumably, comments work, so, please let us know if you discover anything that is not working as it should. Nothing appeared to be broken and everything seemed normal when I was creating this post.
Have a great weekend
We finally had some long-needed rain today. Unfortunately, I got caught in it and got totally drenched walking back from my lunch. So, tonight was an earlier evening for us since we didn’t row. More rain is forecast for the next several days. Hopefully it will be dry at least some of the time and we won’t be stuck inside for the entire weekend.
Have a great weekend.
