Monday Monologue #357

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • The weekend was great. And not just because I didn’t have to go to work. We got out side and had a good time rowing and a good time running. And it didn’t start raining (which we need) until the sun was going down on Sunday.
  • Even though we got started at our regular time, we couldn’t row as much as we wanted to today since sunset is a lot earlier these days. Sadly, not too many more days of rowing left this year.
  • In another sign of the end of summer, there weren’t any grill style hamburger patties at the grocery store and they don’t plan to have any more until sometime next spring. Everything is seasonal these days.
  • And, in the strongest sign that summer is over, we’ve just started running the heat overnight the past few days. Mostly just to take the chill off the morning. Air conditioner weather is likely over for the year.

Friday Featurette #356

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherToday was a very frustrating day at work. Everyone has one occasionally. But I seem to be having a lot recently. I am always happy for the weekend. But, today, I am especially happy for the weekend. Of course, I’m really dreading Monday. But I’m really planning to enjoy the next 48-hours as I refresh, relax and recharge. Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #356

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherOur pool gets closed a week from today. They do a good job; but, to us, it marks the unofficial end of warm weather. We got in it this past weekend but a cold front is moving in today so that was probably the last time for the season. The scheduling was timely. However, we much prefer looking out the window at clear, sparkling water rather than at the winter cover.

Wednesday Weirdness #356

After the latest update, my fitness tracker has a habit of notifying me that it needs to be charged at 4AM in the morning. I don’t have time to charge it in the morning before work. So, I’m stuck waiting to charge it until that evening and hoping that the battery doesn’t die during a workout. To me, the old behavior where I received a notification when the battery discharged to a certain level even if it is was during the work day was better.

Monday Monologue #356

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Our weekend was busy and somewhat hectic. But it was good. Soon enough, there will be plenty of weekends where all we do is sit inside and look out at the snow.
  • I cut the grass this weekend. It needed mowing in some spots, especially in the shade; but must of it was still short and dry. The drought we’ve been having has been hard on our lawn.
  • We’re having a heat wave with temperatures expected in the 90s for the next few days. We got in the pool on Sunday. We’ve done so in late September before; but yesterday was definitely the warmest.
  • The warm weather that we have been experiencing is going to make it even more depressing when it cools off. The last two weekends have been great.

Friday Featurette #355

The Wife fixing the pillows on the bedWe’ve got a busy weekend planned (or more specifically a super busy Saturday) and have to be up very, very early tomorrow. So off to bed for as much sleep as we can get for us. Have a good night and a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #355

The auto-brightness feature on my phone has weirded out. Now, no matter what the lighting conditions, it’s always much too bright. I’ve tried a few things; but, so far, nothing works. Hopefully, I’ll be able to fix it soon. Because, right now, its a gigantic nuisance.

Tuesday Two For #355

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionWe 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.
