Monday Monologue #229

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

  • The weather is starting to get colder again. But. This weekend was divine. Temperatures on Saturday were in the 60’s. A rare treat for February.
  • I had to work three hours late today. I’ve certainly worked later; but that’s not the way to start the week. Hopefully the rest of the week will be better.
  • The Wife and I do not have any big plans for St. Valentine’s Day. For us it is just a regular Tuesday. We focus more on individual “holidays” like birthdays and anniversaries.
  • I’m starting to get sick again. Not like I was back in January. But, I’m still not quite my usual self. Hopefully it’ll recover much quicker this time.

Friday Featurette #228

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionI had a friend that used to say “Some days you get the bear. Some days the bear gets you.” It’s been one of those weeks that the bear won. So, I am really glad for the weekend and a chance to relax and be away from things. I know I’ll be back to it on Monday. But, in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy it.

Have a great weekend!

Traditional Thursday #228

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airThe battery I “found” in a drawer a while ago has given our camera new life. But, it’s still 2010 technology which can be annoying. Especially since its response to button presses is maddening slow by today’s standards. So, I still want to replace it with something new and modern. I just haven’t yet found a suitable device. The pictures are fine. It’s just not “easy to use” for a camera in 2017.

Wednesday Weirdness #228

I know that I will likely have to do Windows Updates next week; but it’s nice not having had to update anything in a while. I think I’ve only done them once this year. Unfortunately, less than monthly updates on a regular basis is too much to hope for. But it is great while it lasts.

Tuesday Two For #228

The Wife getting The Husband ready for actionWe’ve had two days of unseasonably warm weather so, of course snow is forecast for tomorrow. But, at least, we are already a week into February and haven’t had any big snow storms. Warmer days when it’s still gray and windy outdoes aren’t the best. But, they are still a lot better that or normal winter weather. Were still longing for some sun yet happy that it’s not super-snowy and freezing cold.

Monday Monologue #228

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

  • The game yesterday was “interesting”. It was a great comeback and an even bigger choke. This has been the year of teams blowing huge leads in the championship game/series of American professional sports.
  • It was 60-degrees this afternoon. It’s supposed to be warm tomorrow and then possibly snow on Wednesday. Wacky weather seems to be normal this year.
  • The Wife and I will probably be watching a lot more videos now that football is over and we’re into the doldrums of winter. The regular season just isn’t as interesting; especially for sports that play a lot of games. Hard for a single game to be “big” when there are still so many left to play.
  • It’s still months away; but we hope to have our pool opening date scheduled soon. Having a specific date makes the winter seem a bit shorter.

Friday Featurette #227

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionIt happens a LOT so I ‘m not surprised; but I still don’t like working late on Fridays like I did today. A “crisis” can happen any time; but the ones that happen on Friday are always the most annoying. I actually received an email acknowledging the situation; but still urging me to work harder so the sender could get things (that were dependent on me totally resolving the issue) done and go home. As if I wasn’t already working with a sense of urgency. Anyway, I am very glad to be home now. Have a great Super Bowl weekend!

Traditional Thursday #227

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherI hope that the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow today. I’ve had quite enough of this winter. We’ve had a lot less snow than normal. And the temperature has fluctuated between being colder than normal and warmer than normal. But, we haven’t had hardly any sun. The endless dark, dreary days can be kinda depressing even if it’s not cold and snowy.

Wednesday Weirdness #227

When I was on my way home from work today, a car backed out in front of me without looking and then did a U-turn to head in the opposite direction. I had to come to a complete stop to avoid an accident even though I, obviously, had the right of way. They should have looked even if they weren’t expecting much traffic. When our vehicles passed each other, I saw that the driver was focused on their phone. I just hope they made it home safely for their sake and other drivers along the way.
