We opened windows instead; but it was It was warm enough for air conditioning today! After a cold, dreary winter, it was great to have sunshine and a breeze. We’re not yet to the “burning sun” that we enjoy so much. But, hopefully we’re finished with the cold dark days until next fall.
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
It probably doesn’t matter to anyone besides me; but I spent a lot longer that you would expect correcting/removed an extra zero I accidentally included in the file name of several photos. With all the new features that have been added, WordPress still doesn’t natively include a way to rename a media item.

That’s a mistake I won’t be making again for a long, long time. I have no desire to repeat such a tedious process.
P.S. See my fitness tracker on my left wrist. I think I got more “steps” this time.
It’s that time of the month for The Wife. So, we put a towel on top of the bed lines just in case. I’m not sure where they went; but we used to have a couple of old towels that we only used for this purpose. Newer and more absorbent is better for preventing stains, so the one we worked well. It just made me think about old times and whatever became of our original set that we used for many, many years.
I 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.
When it finally stops raining tomorrow, the temperature will drop and we will return to “normal” winter weather. Fortunately, it won’t be super cold. And, thankfully, our vehicles seemed to have survived the cold without any major problems (except for … Continue reading
The frigid winter weather is continuing. But at least there is an end in sight. We won’t be rowing or doing the warm weather activities that we enjoy. But, we’ll be able to put away our heavy winter coats for … Continue reading
