Friday Featurette #338

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionUnsurprisingly, it rained HARD last night. So, our weekend plans are cancelled which seems to be the story of the spring whenever we plan to do anything requiring several consecutive days of good weather. If it doesn’t rain any more, it should dry out enough to cut the grass and do the homeowner thing. So, at least we can be productive (and slightly frustrated). Have a great weekend!

Traditional Thursday #338

The Husband and The Wife geting readyI finally got around to ordering the update for the navigation system in our SUV. It’s a good thing to do prior to the start of a busy summer travel season. But you really need to already be in the midst of a road trip; since the update takes about an hour and the vehicle has to be running the entire time. I realize that its only something that needs to be done once a year. Still, you would have thought there would be an easier way.

Wednesday Weirdness #338

We had a warm, sunny day today! Warm enough so that, even though I was busy until the evening, we could go for a row at sunset and still have it be a pleasant temperature. We enjoy rowing at dusk when it’s warm (as long as we don’t encounter any skunks when we put our boat away). The weather has been trending warmer. Hopefully, a warm evening won’t seem notable.

Tuesday Two For #338

The Wife kneeling naked in front of the mirror drying her hairAfter the ordeal of cutting tall wet grass in the rain this past weekend, a robotic lawn mower is looking better and better. It’s still far down on the list of things to buy. But it would be nice to have one; especially given our recent weather. When we finally have a sunny day, yard work is the last think I want to be doing. It really would be nice to remotely cut the grass from an app on my phone while I was out doing something I wanted to do. That is new technology that I would really use.

Monday Monologue #338

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • The Wife had a good Mother’s Day weekend. Its always good when we can all be around the same table at dinner. Even if it’s only for one day.
  • Sunday was cold, wet and miserable. And unfortunately, grass cutting day. Since I’m busy through the week, I need to cut the grass over the weekend regardless of weather. The blade lawn mower kept fouling in the tall wet grass. So, I spent an extra-long time in the outside in rain.
  • I think that I’m catching a cold. Probably from the yesterday. Not the best way to start the week.
  • It’s supposed to warm up later this week; hopefully for good. We’ve been teased before. We’re hoping it stays warm for the rest of the summer. We’ve both had enough of this cold, wet spring.

Friday Featurette #337

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherWe’ve got another busy weekend ahead. Last weekend turned out OK (which means we didn’t get rained on constantly) despite a questionable weather forecast. We are hoping for more of the same this weekend. See you on the other side. We’ll let you know how it goes. And have a great weekend yourself. Memorial Day is only two weeks away.

Traditional Thursday #337

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airFor the first time all year, we’ve actually rowed on our regular schedule three days in a row. That should not be noteworthy; but it is for a year like the current one. It hasn’t always been sunny. But it hasn’t been raining all the time either. Hopefully warm, sunny weather is right around the corner. We are really looking forward to it whenever it finally arrives.

Wednesday Weirdness #337

I installed yet another WordPress update today. I have no idea why they think forcing adoption of a new version every month is a good way to do things (even for free software). People only have so much inertia. And, recently, every new version breaks things I use in the quest to add worthless new features. Hopefully this version didn’t break anything. If it did, please let me know in the comments.

Tuesday Two For #337

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionLike everyone else, we’ve got a long list of dream items to buy. But, with all of the rain we’ve been having recently, I would really would like to have a robotic lawnmower. Then, I wouldn’t be wasting dry Saturday or Sunday afternoons cutting the grass. Obviously, it’s not a necessity. But it would certainly add some extra hours to my weekend. These days, one of my biggest yard work tasks is cleaning wet grass out of the lawn mower.

Monday Monologue #337

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • We got rained on some but our weekend outdoors was not cancelled. And Sunday was a warm, sunny day. So, it was good.
  • I cut the grass on Saturday despite it still being wet. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to thoroughly clean off the lawn mower. So now the garage is starting to smell a bit like a compost pile.
  • Today was really the first warm spring day of the year. We actually turned on the air conditioner. Maybe there will actually be a summer.
  • I was very late getting home from work today due to an accident on the highway. The route I usually take is quick. But, it requires a LONG detour if the highway is closed.
