Tuesday Two For #341

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionToday was a warm sunny day that seemed almost like summer. We haven’t had as many of them as we would like; but we really enjoy long sunny summer days. Especially the late sunsets that let us do more things in the evening. Our smart thermostat says that we barely used the air conditioner in May. We’re not anxious to spend “extra” money. But, we are really longing for pool weather. Right now, our swimming pool is basically an expensive decoration in the back yard.

Monday Monologue #341

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • I was outside all day on Saturday and Sunday even though it rained. It wasn’t cold even though it was wet. We’ve had very few weekends of good weather this year. It was still better than being inside.
  • We have been taking more walks in the evenings we can’t get out and row since our fitness trackers show how sedentary we are when were stuck indoors. The wife has good habits. I need a lot of exercise to match my diet.
  • Because of the weather, I’ve been cutting my grass slightly more frequently including Saturday afternoon. Still, not like my next-door neighbor who is obsessed.
  • We rowed today even though it was windy. Ordinarily we may not have. But, even though it’s June, it’s still a somewhat rare treat to row (semi) regularly.

Friday Featurette #340

The Wife sitting naked on the bed after a "photo" sessionGlad to turn the page to June. May was an much wetter and slightly colder month than usual. It rained earlier this week too. But we are still hoping for a normal month weather-wise. More rain is expected tomorrow and Sunday. But we still have high hopes for party dry weather. Have a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #340

I doesn’t happen very often; but I recently had a week where I cut my grass more frequently than my next-door neighbor! He was actually cutting his lawn every other day to keep up. I’m back on my regular (AKA weekly) schedule now. But it was amusing to see how he reacted to my grass being shorter than his when it was too late in the evening to mow and he had to wait until the next day. (He still cut his lawn the next time I cut mine even though he last mowed a day later than l did.)

Monday Monologue #340

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • We are back and had a good time away in the sun. We keep hoping for sunny days around here; but the unseasonal rain goes on and on and on.
  • A recent update made some unexpected changes to Office. All of the icons are different and some things are moved around. It’s almost like a totally new version which is a bit disconcerting since you generally expect updates to not be as obtrusive.
  • I don’t know how long or how well I will be able to do it; but I trying not to complain. When things are good, they are really good. And when things are “bad” there are people wo would love to trade places with us.
  • We still have a lot of room for improvement; but our rowing is a lot better than when we first started or even compared to a few years ago. We are not “fast”; but we’re not slow anymore either.
