Traditional Thursday #328

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airI complain a lot about the winter weather since we can’t do nearly as much outside as we can during the summer. I would complain a lot more if we didn’t have an attached garage and I didn’t have covered parking and long-range remote start I didn’t park when I’m at work or running errands. When you use them every day, luxuries almost seem like necessities. We’ve probably become spoiled; but I like it that way. It makes the winter tolerable.

Wednesday Weirdness #328

I basically got an email saying that I had fulfilled a request incorrectly and it needed to be fixed immediately. Of course, I hadn’t previously been informed about the special requirements. I wanted to respond (but didn’t) that I had no way of knowing since no one ever bothered to tell me. Instead I was polite. Still, it’s very frustrating when people expect you to read their mind and be aware of things they have never mentioned.

Tuesday Two For #328

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairI got home very late from work today. So, we are only posting a snapshot I took of The Wife drying her hair. The busy winter for me just won’t stop. I am really looking forward to the day when we will have more time to plan and prepare for our picture-taking sessions. We’re not rushed. But we are can’t totally forget that its already a late evening. And, of course, it’s snowing (again). This never-ending winter just won’t quite go away.

Monday Monologue #328

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • Today is a holiday for some. Unfortunately, I am not one of the lucky ones. For me it was just a regular work day. Memorial Day is still a long way away.
  • I had to recharge the tank of our reverse osmosis unit thus weekend. Unfortunately, you can only add air when the tank is empty. Then you have to wait for hours until the tank refills to see if it’s under or over filled. Not the best way to spend a Sunday.
  • We decided to watch a movie in the home theater since it was typical February weather outside. We (especially me) like our spectacle-type moves. They look great on a big screen with surround sound. Much better than on the A/V system in the living room.
  • I put my snowmobile suit back in the basement. Not because the weather forecast calls for warmer weather. Despite the winterly mix we are having today, I’m hoping the bitterly cold snowy days are over.

Friday Featurette #327

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionI actually left work “early” for me for a Friday. Which means that I didn’t leave as late as I have been going home recently. And, I won’t be doing any work this weekend like I have been. So, this weekend will be as relaxing as a cold, gray February weekend can be. Long days as work are more “tolerable” during the winter when I’m stuck inside. But I still hope that things slow down. Have a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #327

Sometimes, I wish I could un-RSVP. Especially when the stated purpose of an event changes. I’m a busy person and, just because I was “free” for something, doesn’t mean that I’m free for anything and everything that might be scheduled for the same time. People who don’t value my time don’t deserve as much of it as my sense of personal responsibility requires.

Monday Monologue #327

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • I’ve been getting a lot of spam calls recently on my mobile phone. I Know it must work or the spammers wouldn’t do it. But, wonder who answers numbers I don’t recognize. Especially on a mobile phone where almost everyone is a contact.
  • Except for the price, I really like the new eyeglasses I got recently. I’ve never worn contact lenses even though I am very near-sighted. So, it has always been somewhat of a challenge to find glasses that look good with my prescription.
  • One of the updates I did back in January broke something and I only just detected it. It took a forever to find it; because I was first focusing on more recent changes. Very frustrating.
  • It’s been hard; But I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not gaining weight this winter. I try and do a variety of workouts; but, after several months indoors at the gym, they all become pretty monotonous. Especially since there haven’t been very many days where we could get outside.

Friday Featurette #326

The Wife in the bathroom getting ready for a phots sessionAmazingly, our basement did not flood despite our home being without power to run the sump pump for several hours while the ground was saturated with water due to melting snow and heavy rain fall. We were very lucky. The sump pump cycled on and off for a long time after the power came back on. It never used to run even in the spring. Now, with the rising water table over the last few years, we will probably be purchasing a battery backup in the very near future.

Have a great weekend!
