Now that the air conditional isn’t so loud and doesn’t have an annoying vibration, we’ve moved the bed back against the outside wall. It was only a few inches away from the wall before. But, I never quite got used to the bed not being next to at least one wall. The bed is still new so I don’t think it increases the noise from the bed springs. Can you tell any difference?
We’ve been rowing a lot this summer since it’s been mostly hot and dry. Occasionally we’ve had “scattered” thunderstorms; but not enough rain to make the river high and unrowable. And, when it did rain, it didn’t last long enough that we couldn’t row afterwards on these long summer days. according to my log I’ve rowed 18 consecutive days which is the most I’ve done. I know that streak will come to an end, so we’re going to enjoy these long days while we can.
As you can see from our tan lines in the picture, we’ve really been getting some sun the past month, and especially this week. This week has been glorious. We’ve rowed every day and gotten in the pool as well. We really, hate to see it come to a close. It will be many, many months before our next vacation.
We are really enjoying our new A/C. The air that comes out of the registers is much colder than before. Plus its great not having to think about whether or not it’s still going to be running when we get back inside after an afternoon in the heat. One less thing to worry about when we’re on vacation.
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!
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.
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.
It’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.
