Traditional Thursday #358

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airI installed yet anther WordPress update today. They have far too many bug fix and security updates. Meanwhile, the database it uses, which is much more complicated, has a maintenance release every few months. I know it’s a different audience and business model. But you can’t keep expecting people to test and verify updates every few weeks. It’s getting to be quite tiresome.

Wednesday Weirdness #358

Late last week, someone left their disabled car parked in our neighborhood just past the intersection to a busy through street and, for whatever reason didn’t come back for it over the weekend. It was ticked multiple times and then impounded. I understand that sometimes cars break down. But why create the extra nuisance and expense? Now they have to pay for towing and storage if they want their vehicle back.

Monday Monologue #358

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

  • Our weekend was another busy one. It turned cooler on Saturday. So, we know that there won’t be many more for us to enjoy.
  • We set our setback thermostat to winter mode where it lets it get cooler at night and warmer during the day when we are awake. (Its reversed in the summer.) I don’t think we’ll be running the air conditioning much.
  • We closed our pool last week. Yet another sign that summer is over. It went past quickly.
  • I’ve also started preparing our vehicles for cold weather. It’s not here yet. But its close enough that I want to be ready.

Traditional Thursday #357

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airAll our computers restarted correctly after the batch last Windows Updates. It’s shouldn’t be notable; but it is worth mentioning given the recent problems we had. Computers can be a lot more troublesome than they should be sometimes. Hopefully it’s the beginning of a trend that will leave me with more free time.

Wednesday Weirdness #357

The Wife and I finally found matching base layers to wear when we are rowing. Usually we don’t think about it until the weather is already cold and then it’s too late as either her size or my size is sold out. It was weird trying on clothes for cooler days while its 70-degrees outside and we are wearing shorts. But that’s the way things are these days,

Monday Monologue #357

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

  • The weekend was great. And not just because I didn’t have to go to work. We got out side and had a good time rowing and a good time running. And it didn’t start raining (which we need) until the sun was going down on Sunday.
  • Even though we got started at our regular time, we couldn’t row as much as we wanted to today since sunset is a lot earlier these days. Sadly, not too many more days of rowing left this year.
  • In another sign of the end of summer, there weren’t any grill style hamburger patties at the grocery store and they don’t plan to have any more until sometime next spring. Everything is seasonal these days.
  • And, in the strongest sign that summer is over, we’ve just started running the heat overnight the past few days. Mostly just to take the chill off the morning. Air conditioner weather is likely over for the year.
