And, just like that, tomorrow is the last day of February. This winter has been “mild” for around here. We’ve had some cold and some snow, and, of course, the endless dreary days. But, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I hate February. Right now, we’re having a wintery mix followed by a cold front. Its typical weather for this time of year. Its extra depressing since I was outside both days last weekend. It may be possible to be … Continue reading →
I recently purchased an update to software that I use for “70%” off. For many years, they have always sold it at list price or slightly discounted until sometime February when they have a great deal. Then the price goes back up (but not as much as it was). I’m sure I’m not the only one to have noticed. I wonder if anyone is upgrading when its first released.
Many of the pictures from this week’s phot session were very dark for some unknown reason. The lighting is the same; but our camera thinks something is different and doesn’t make the proper adjustments. It’s really hard to tell what the issue is since the flash activates. Obviously, something is different; but I can’t tell what. I hate mysteries.
When I was rearraigning things for some, I mixed up where the cables should optimally be plugged in on our USB charging station. Now The Wife’s Fitbit takes twice as long to charge. Unfortunately, I can’t find the manual and none of the higher amperage ports are marked. It may just be time for an upgrade considering I paid less than $20 for it several years ago. Have a great weekend.
We just received the postcard from the pool company that services our swimming pool scheduling the opening for the year. Its still months away; however, having a definite date makes the winter seem a bit shorter. It takes a couple of days to balance the chemistry and for the robot to get all the winter debris off the bottom. But, it’s still nice to look at even if we can’t swim.
After not needing to for the past 12 years, I had to hand wind my automatic (self-winding) watch today. With my new daily routine, I’ve become mostly sedentary (except when I’m working out). I move so little during the day that I can’t even keep my wristwatch fully wound! That’s life in a modern cube farm.
The photo that we’re posting today is a bit dark. But it reminds me of one of my favorite pictures; so, we decided to post it anyway. That’s really the way of things with our older camera. Were just happy that it (mostly) works. There is always something else that is more important for us to purchase. Like the new microwave that we just installed.
An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
I installed the new microwave oven without any problems on Saturday. I had all the tools and all the hardware I needed which was an unexpected surprise. It is super-quiet compared to the old one.
I didn’t watch he big race and I’m really kinda glad. You never want to see something like that. Especially if you’re old enough to remember all the deadly crashes when safety was an afterthought.
I had the today off for President’s Day for the first time in a long time if not the first time ever. Its nice having a three-day weekend in mid-February. New Year’s Day to Memorial Day was always a big stretch.
I washed my car over the weekend; which means its destined to rain since that is always my luck.
