We’ve been rowing a lot this summer since it’s been mostly hot and dry. Occasionally we’ve had “scattered” thunderstorms; but not enough rain to make the river high and unrowable. And, when it did rain, it didn’t last long enough that we couldn’t row afterwards on these long summer days. according to my log I’ve rowed 18 consecutive days which is the most I’ve done. I know that streak will come to an end, so we’re going to enjoy these long days while we can.
Our air conditioning is broken again so we do not have the best photographs this week since we had to leave the windows open even though it was after sunset which and our camera is not the best at nighttime exposures with potion. We don’t know yet when we will be able to have the new one installed. It appears we’re going to have a hot Independence Day vacation.
With our summer tans and the extra sunlight in the evenings we’ve had some issues with the auto-flash not activating when it should. So, this week we decided to make a movie which doesn’t use the flash. Its not a solution for a light sensor which is sometimes confused. But, it works for now. The permanent resolution is a light kit which is maddening difficult to find in our price range. All the ones we’ve seen are to obtrusive and distracting for a bed cam. Its one more thing on our long to-to list.
The Wife is getting quite a tan from all of the biking and rowing that we have been doing. She wears shorter shorts and shirts with different sleeve lengths so it’s not as odd as mine. Hopefully we will get some more time in the pool to “fix” things. Of course, an uneven tan is a good problem to have. When we were having all of the dreary spring days I didn’t think that we would ever see the sun.
Sometimes, our photo sessions make for kinda of a late night for us. Today was one of those days. So, nothing fancy tonight. Just a couple of traditional pictures.
Today was the start of a short week. It’s always easier to get back into the grove on Tuesday after a Monday holiday than on Monday after a Friday holiday. (Even though we are still count the days until next weekend.) Having a great holiday weekend like we did this past weekend did make it a bit more difficult. Hopefully there will be many more glorious days ahead this summer.
For reasons that are still unknown, our camera turned itself off (again) in the middle of our photo session. Rather than waste time investigating, I just set it up to take a video and made sure that it started. Then I continued doing what I was doing before noticing that the camera was off.
After posting videos the last few weeks, we decided to post a few photographs. Partly just to do something different. And, partly, to give a different view of the new queen-size bed and accessories. It’s nice not being limited to … Continue reading
Since the video we made last week had better sound, we decided to do an encore this week. We won’t make videos every week; but, we want to take advantage of the situation while we can. The dial on our worn-out old camera didn’t weird out like it did a couple of weeks ago. So, everything was good. Enjoy
