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.
I turned on the fireplace for the first time of the season yesterday. It was nice to have a warm, cheery fire going. The first time we use is also a bit depressing, however. It’s not “cold” yet. But, it’s a lot colder than it has been. We know that summer is gone and won’t be back until next year. We are still hoping for a warm fall, which, so far, does not appear to be likely. And, sadly, it’s not much fun when it’s too cold to go out and play.

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. I’m only mildly superstitions; but, I still like to be careful on unlucky days. Intellectually, I know there is no such thing and any bad luck is coincidence. But, I would rather avoid any coincidences. … Continue reading
Now that it is finally working, our upgraded internet service does make it easier to upload video to this blog. And perhaps we can do a few things online that we didn’t have the speed to do before. We won’t be able to use the cloud like people on the coasts. But it should make the things we can do more efficient.
P.S. Still no sound.
The Wife and I have been busy enjoying the summer and haven’t had time to experiment with ways to reduce background noise in our videos. So, we’re posting a silent movie. Obviously, that’s not the long-term solution; but, it has been a while since we posted a video. It doesn’t make up for the lack of sound but the video is higher resolution than normal.
For a variety of reasons, I’ve decide to take a hiatus from boxing. It’s been a good way for me to stay fit over the years. I’m going to need to find another activity besides normal gym stuff. Rowing is … Continue reading
I’m not under the weather; but I’ve already started wearing a hat and drinking hit apple cider. Where did the summer go? Hopefully we’ll get a few more glorious days before fall weather is here to stay. Of course, we don’t have a hurricane season around here, so we’ve got nothing to really complain about.
A few weeks ago, I stopped eating all of the junk food that I consume in between meals. I still miss it; but I’ve definitely lost some weight and feel better. I know I eat too much of it as … Continue reading
