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.)
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.
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.
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.
The Wife is getting quite a tan from all of the biking and rowing that we have been doing. She wears shorter shorts and shirts with different sleeve lengths so it’s not as odd as mine. Hopefully we will get some more time in the pool to “fix” things. Of course, an uneven tan is a good problem to have. When we were having all of the dreary spring days I didn’t think that we would ever see the sun.
The rain or more precisely the thunder chased us off the river today. It was one of those days where it was actually sunny at the river; but, we could hear lightning. Rowing, like all sports played outdoors, follows the 30-minute rule. And every time we though that the storm might be moving off, there was more lighting. Better safe than sorry. Especially when tomorrow is forecast to be another warm spring day. Have a great weekend.
Here is a picture of the two of us just hanging out after a photo session. I’m not in as many photographs as The Wife so I though it would be nice for both of us to be in a candid picture. The summer solstice is fast approaching and we are really enjoying the long evenings. Days like today don’t come around too often.
