I’ve had another turn with the sun (AKA birthday). It certainly beats the alternative. But I do wonder where the time went. It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was 30-something and everyone was talking about everything breaking in … Continue reading
I had a doctor’s appointment today. It was uneventful which is always good except my follow-up appointment is scheduled for 2020. As someone who has spent more time writing “19”, having things scheduled in the third decade of the 2000s … Continue reading
I like shopping on the internet except when things don’t get shipped promptly. I placed several orders last week, and so far, nothing has arrived. One order is in transit. One order has partially shipped. And one order is still … Continue reading
We don’t like the short days that accompany it; but one thing we enjoy about fall is that there are lots of rowing races. There are a lot of interesting places to go and people to meet as the end of rowing season approaches. We hope that the warm weather lasts and that we will be able to row for a long time. But, if we don’t, we will at least have good memories to sustain us over the winter.
I’ve been online less this week than usual since I had some work dumped on me at the last minute. Its never fun to do another people’s job for them; especially when they have had plenty of time to learn how to do it themselves. It’s even less fun when you have drop everything else because they didn’t tell you until right before the deadline.
The Wife and I both feel pretty good despite all the toiling that we did in the yard over the weekend. We still were able to find the time row so it wasn’t all work and no fun. The water level in the river is as low as we’ve ever seen it. It’s still fun; but we have to be careful when we are rowing since boats are so fragile. A long drought was very unexpected after such a wet spring. This has been a very strange year weather-wise.
I may have been a bit too optimistic last week about our camera. The reader didn’t recognize the memory card when I tried to download the pictures from our photo session. Finally, after much inserting and removing the memory card and plugging and unplugging of the card reader from the computer I was able to read and download our pictures. I’ll re-format the card and hope for smoother downloading next week. We did get some pictures we like.
Our vacation this past weekend was great. I am getting much better at planning them. It was very relaxing. There are always things to do differently the next time. But, no “I wish we…” items. It was a good way … Continue reading
As you can tell from The Wife’s feet, we have finally been able to get outside and enjoy the sun. Although we do need to get in the pool more so there isn’t such a difference from wearing our shoes. Of course, that is a good problem to have. Especially after our wet rainy spring. I have started wearing a hat whenever I think about it to protect my head.
I noticed when I was editing the photos for today’s post that I uploaded several photos last week with the “wrong” name. No one else would likely notice. And it doesn’t change the content of the posts. But; it’s the … Continue reading
