After all the busy weekends, we do not have much planned for Saturday or Sunday. It’s supposed to rain. So, even though it will be warm, we won’t be able to row or do any yard work. It will be good to relax. Unfortunately, I expect it’s just the first weekend of manythat we’ll be reminiscing about the summer and anxiously waiting for spring.
Have a great weekend.
It wasn’t “significant”; but, it was still depressing to see snow on the ground and ice on the roads. It already seems like January even though its only November. We’re hoping for a mild winter; which doesn’t seem to likely considering how cold and blustery November has been. After last year’s cold snowy winter, almost anything would be an improvement.
There were a lot of walkers at the Turkey run we did this past week. I don’t understand why they don’t start toward the back as instructed in the race information. Instead, they start at the front and slow all the runners down. The race was crowded so it took us over a mile to pass them all. If I was walking, I wouldn’t want to have runner after runner streaming by me for such a long time. Especially if I was trying to walk with someone.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. We hope that you are having a wonderful time with friends and family. And that you do not have to work and get to enjoy the four-day weekend.
We were thinking earlier today that our digital camera is over 8 years old. Even though it is very finicky, its amazing that it still works at all. We’ve reached the point where we are (pleasantly) surprised if it operatels normally for the entire photo session. Which, of course means, that it’s long past time to get a new one. We will certainly be checking the online sales on Friday. Anyway, here is a short video we made to make sure it can still record movies semi-reliably.
We are slowly transitioning to our winter schedule. This has been a strange year weather-wise. It was cool in the spring, then suddenly it was roasting hot. The fall was warm, then the weather quickly turned cold. We didn’t have the gradual transitions that are typical with the change of seasons. We’re just hoping that the coming winter is not bitter cold like last year. Have a great weekend.
Amazingly, our camera stayed on for the entire photo session. That shouldn’t be noteworthy. However, with the way our photo sessions have gone recently it was a welcome change to have a full selection of photographs. It won’t last. Or camera is past it’s useful life even for the undemanding standards of a bed-cam. So, we’re going to enjoy it while for as long as we can.
Our anti-virus software is nagging us to renew even though we still have several weeks left. I hate being nagged, especially by computers. I understand the subscription-based model for certain products. But the reminders are still annoying. I will renew or find another product before it expires. I don’t need to be reminded every logon. Anyway, have a great weekend.
Here is the movie we made. It’s not very long. We wish there was more. Maybe next week.
Our camera took just one photograph before dying. And then when I switched it to move mode, it stayed on for less them 4 minutes. In the words of The Wife “it is nearing the end of its useful life”. Obviously, not much content to choose form this week. But, we still had fun making it.
