My next-door neighbor has already cut his grass TWICE this week. Meanwhile, I still haven’t started mowing yet. Our yard is getting to the point where it needs cutting; but, it’s only recently started to turn green. I’m sure I’ll start cutting the grass in early April someday. Just not this year. It’s not long. Only slightly unkempt. Once I cut it, it will be the same length as the neighbors.
I left work (almost) on time today and The Wife and I had a relaxing Friday afternoon row. Going home on time shouldn’t be a notable event; but, unfortunately, it has been recently. Hopefully leaving work at a reasonable time is a trend that will continue. Tomorrow is may be the warmest day of the year so far and we are looking forward to it. Have a great weekend.
It looks like we can get out and row both days this coming weekend. Its won’t be “warm”; but just being able to be outside two days in a row makes it seem more like spring. We have had do few good weekends this winter and strong that even an “OK” one weather-wise seems great. But, we are still hoping for a long, hot summer full of days with burning sunshine. Have a great weekend.
I had to work very late today which is not the best way to start the weekend. I almost didn’t get to the gym in time enough to get a workout in before it closed. Plus, I still had a few things to finish up after I got home. But, now I’m done with everything and ready for a quiet, relaxing weekend. Seems like I’ve had a lot of long days recently. ‘m not going to worry about that now. Besides going to the gym, I have nothing else I need to do. Have a great weekend.
The Wife and I have matching wristwatches. So, we both wear our fitness trackers on our dominant hand which is a bit of an adjustment. We got our watches as an anniversary gift to ourselves, so we’ll continue to wear them even though they’re really just jewelry and our phones keep much better time. Our style is definitely an unusual blend of old and new. Have a great weekend!
I worked late into the evening today. Nut, that was a good thing; because I got everything finished up and I have nothing (work-related) to do over the weekend. I’m haven’t had any major crises recently. I finally seem to be catching up on things. It’s a nice feeling to start the weekend knowing there is nothing “extra” that I need to do. Hopefully the trend will continue. Have a greet weekend.
Unsurprisingly, there was an upgrade notice for a new version of WordPress greeting me on the dashboard when I logged in. Their release cadence is crazy. Once every 2 or 3 months would be fine. Not the other way around like it has bene recently. Especially since updates often seem to break something. An unavoidable nuisance task I’ll be doing tomorrow or Sunday. Have a great weekend.
I 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.
Amazingly, 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!
The extremely cold weather that accompanied the polar vortex is finally over. We got a bunch of stow dumped upon us overnight. But even though the roads were terrible and schools and businesses were closed, it didn’t seem so bad since the forecast for this weekend will actually be warm enough to melt a lot of the snow. So I’m really going to enjoy any day that isn’t freezing cold and/or snowing. Have a great weekend. And best of luck to whichever team you are rooting for on Sunday.
