We couldn’t row today because it was raining (again). So, we had kinda an early night and took this week’s pictures before the sun went down. It is nice to still have some daylight when we were home for the … Continue reading
I installed yet another version of WordPress, the software hat runs this blog, yesterday. The updates, are never ending. Another one is due in two weeks; but they couldn’t wait since the last update broke so much. And, somehow, slowing down and testing more thoroughly doesn’t seem to be an option. I don’t know when yet; but we’re definitely getting off the merry-go-round of constant updates.
I 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.
For 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.
Our pool has been open for a week and is starting to look good. Except the water is nearly overflowing even though it was drained to the proper level last week since its rained almost every day this week. We’ve had a lot of high water; but no flooding, so we really can’t really complain. All the wet weather around here is a nuisance; just not a disaster. We just want it to stop raining everywhere that’s had too much.
After what seemed like ages; but was actually only a week, the river and nearby bike paths were finally clear and we able to return to our regular outside activities. Rainy Aprils are not unusual, especially for around here. It’s just a bit frustrating after spending time in a warmer and sunnier location where heavy rain is only a problem when it’s actually raining.
I installed the replacement part for the furnace that I was waiting on earlier today shortly after it was delivered. It appears to have fixed the problem. Now we are as warm as we want to be. Its good to have heat. Even if were don’t need it too much. But, sometimes, it seems as if I spend far too much of my time doing the homeowner thing.
In one of those strange occurrences that seems to happen to me more often than it should, I got an unusually large number of emails at both home and work, many of which were important. So, what was already a long day become even longer. And, I’m catching a cold. I’m going to bed. I hope I’ll feel better in the morning and that tomorrow will be a “regular” day.
We rowed on the river for the first time in what seems like forever. The water was high (but not too high) and still icy cold. It seemed like spring, if only for a day. Temperatures are already dropping and … Continue reading
