The Wife got a FitBit last week. It’s actually moderately entertaining in unintended ways. One of the first things that we did was investigate how it categorizes sex. It seems to underestimate activity if her hands are relatively still or … Continue reading
The Wife is still slightly sick (as am I) but every day we get better. Having a spring cold isn’t any fun. Especially with the winter weather we have been having. It certainly doesn’t seem like the second week of April temperature-wise. We’re hopeful that spring weather will arrive soon. Our normal spring/summer schedule seems almost like a dream.
We noticed when I was replacing a burned out light bulb in our bath room that all of the others were getting dim. So, I replaced them as well. There is a lot more light. That’s good for most things. … Continue reading
We haven’t had any “spring-like ” weather recently; but The Wife and I are rowing once again. So, even though we need to wear a thick base layer, it’s the unofficial start of our spring. Here is a video of the two us getting the party started after we got home from one of our rows. It was a good day both on and off the water.
Some non-work-related things happened in real life that made today not the best of days. Nothing “important” in the big picture. Bit it still made for a somber day. So, today we’re just posting a quick video. The original is better than the transcoded copy but I didn’t feel like editing it or really doing much of anything. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
We had not made a video in a while so we decided to make one this week. We got a new tube of flavored lubricant over the weekend which always make for a good time. I wonder if the mailmen know what’s in the boxes they are delivering. For bedroom accessories as with most things these days, ordering online is easier than going to the store. These days, everything is safety-sealed. And, even if they weren’t, you can’t try stuff out in a store anyways.
Recently, The Wife has been using a hot washcloth on her face in the morning when she wakes up. Everyone has their morning routine. She doesn’t think it’s that unusual; but I know I would fall back asleep only to wake up some time later with a cold, wet towel on my face. Anyway, I thought it was interesting view. So, here is a picture I took before I left for work today.
The Wife had an appointment at the eye doctor shortly before our photo session and her eyes were still sensitive to light. So, we were unable to use the background lighting or the camera flash. As a result. The pictures are relatively dark and grainy. We both still had fun even if the photographs look like they were shot with a spy camera. More importantly, everything is well with her. We can always add to our photo collection another day.
I finally fixed a weird issue that I have been having with a computer that I upgraded to Windows 10. The “fix” was amazingly simple. Diagnosing the problem was the hard part. And, even though I know what’s happening, I still haven’t figured out why. I don’t like mysteries. Especially technical ones.
We had a brief taste of Spring today. One of those rare days February days where we could open all the windows during the day and get outside in the afternoon. I’m sure that we will be back to bundling up soon. But today was great. Even if it was only for one day.
Whenever it’s cold and we have trouble turning on the fireplace, I think about fixing it. Sadly, it’s such a gigantic nuisance that I still haven’t gotten around to it. First, I have to remove the fake logs and the all lava rocks so I can reach the gas piping. Then I need to take out both the thermopile and the thermocouple. Clean them up enough to read the part numbers so that I can find replacements. Then put everything back together. Order the new parts. And do everything all over again in a week or two when the parts arrive. And that’s assuming that the needed parts are readily available. One of the problems with everything being available on the internet is that very little is available at local stores. And this is definitely the type of involved disassembly that I would prefer not to do twice. An ideal indoor task for a cold, rainy weekend in the summer. If I don’t forget when its ben months since we turned on the fireplace.
