Traditional Thursday #295

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionWe’re not sure if you can tell by the photographs; but there was plenty of moonlight for our photo session. Not a bad evening except for the fact that we are dreading the upcoming week or weeks. Perhaps we’ll take some new pictures if there are any comfortable days this weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #295

We got phosphates in our swimming pool this past weekend which is never a good thing. I was able to remove the phosphates; but now the chemistry is unbalanced. So, we may not be able to get in the pool while the air conditioner is broken and it is burning hot outside. The hot weather will help dissipate the excess chemicals; but, we won’t be able to cool off in the pool for several days.

Tuesday Two For #295

Our air conditioning is broken again so we do not have the best photographs this week since we had to leave the windows open even though it was after sunset which and our camera is not the best at nighttime exposures with potion. We don’t know yet when we will be able to have the new one installed. It appears we’re going to have a hot Independence Day vacation.

Monday Monologue #295

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Our air condition ran very low on freon on Thursday. So, we had no A/C for the pat four days. Its cooling the house down now. Friday was miserable. but, fortunately, we were out of the house a lot on Saturday and Sunday.
  • We did well at our rowing race this weekend. Its always nice to win medals even if we don’t have anything to do with them later.
  • I did not cut the grass this weekend since it’s bene hot and it didn’t grow much. It still looks fine; but, I’m sure that the next-door neighbor is not pleased. I didn’t feel like a lot of yard work with no A/C inside.
  • One more week and then we are on vacation. Friday can not get here soon enough.

Friday Featurette #294

We had a busy day today and didn’t get to row. Not the best way to get into our weekend. But, that’s happens sometimes. We’ve got another busty weekend planned. I’m not sure that I’ll even have time to cut the grass which is OK since it has been hot. But will probably irritate the next-door neighbor. We’ll catch up with you next week. Have a great weekend!

Traditional Thursday #294

One of the minor annoyances of both of us being nearsighted is that we can’t see the camera when it’s on the tripod even though its only a few feet away. So, we can’t tell if the light stops flashing (which means it’s not recording). We really never know if it’s working or not. Obviously, it should keep going once it’s started. But sometimes, it doesn’t. Most people see well enough to notice. Unfortunately, we do not. So, making a movie always needs a bit of luck. This time, everything worked as expected and we have a video to share.

Wednesday Weirdness #294

I got caught in a torrential downpour when I was rowing on Tuesday. One minute it was clear. The next it was raining really, really hard. I was thoroughly soaked by the time I got back to the dock. Then, not surprisingly, it stopped raining by the time we put away the boat. I know that is the way of things and always a possibility. But, that didn’t make me any less cold and wet.

Tuesday Two For #294

With our summer tans and the extra sunlight in the evenings we’ve had some issues with the auto-flash not activating when it should. So, this week we decided to make a movie which doesn’t use the flash. Its not a solution for a light sensor which is sometimes confused. But, it works for now. The permanent resolution is a light kit which is maddening difficult to find in our price range. All the ones we’ve seen are to obtrusive and distracting for a bed cam. Its one more thing on our long to-to list.

Monday Monologue #294

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Our rowing is still improving. We just wish there were more nearby races that we could attend. We know that we’re faster from our informal competitions. But it would be nice to have some official results.
  • It rained a bit on Saturday afternoon; but we were able to get into the pool on Sunday. Temperatures were in the 90s both days so it was good.
  • I fixed a broken piece on the dishwasher for the third time today. I understand that they need to make certain parts out of plastic. But they could still be more durable.
  • The air-conditioner has been running almost non-stop during the current heat wave. I don’t even want to think about our next electric bill.

Friday Featurette #293

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airIt’s the weekend; but unfortunately, I’ve got to work tonight, tomorrow and possibly Sunday. I’m hoping but not planning to get finished early. Otherwise, it’s not going to be much of a weekend at all. I’m really hoping that Saturday doesn’t turn into one of those days and that everything goes as planned.

Have a great weekend.
