One day earlier this week, I stopped by the optometrist and had my glasses adjusted. It’s amazing how much better I see when the lenses are property aligned. Progressive lenses are great, unfortunately; they aren’t the best for my lifestyle. Particularly since being extra careful with frames doesn’t blend well with being active.
The new refrigerator got delivered today. It cooled down MUCH faster than the old one, even compared to when the old one was working. We’re just waiting for it to make the first bucket of ice (which we’re supposed to throw away) before it is fully functional. The new one is a lot nicer than the old one. We just hope we will not be unexpectedly buying anything new for a while. It is definitely not fun having to purchase an emergency replacement.
We have a busy weekend planned since we can never get enough warm summer days. Sometimes, I think we are too busy. Then I remember what it’s like to be stuck inside during the long, cold, snowy winter. These days can be hectic. But, later, when we look back, we wouldn’t trade them for any thing.
Have a great weekend. We will see you on the other side.
Here is a picture of the two of us just hanging out after a photo session. I’m not in as many photographs as The Wife so I though it would be nice for both of us to be in a candid picture. The summer solstice is fast approaching and we are really enjoying the long evenings. Days like today don’t come around too often.
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.
It was almost warm today which basically means that, for once, it wasn’t cold. Not warm enough to do anything outside. But, warm enough, that walking from our car was tolerable and we didn’t feel like we had to rush … Continue reading →
I really like the fact that the gym I now work out at during lunch hour is within easy walking distance. The downside to working downtown is that parking isn’t convenient for lunchtime errands. I would actually do more waking if I walked to the garage where I park usually park my car, drove to the nearest parking in vicinity of the gym, and walked inside than if I just walked directly there. I don’t mind walking. That’s one of the things I like about working downtown. I prefer to walk. Except when its freeing cold outside. Then I find myself longing for summer even more than I already am.
Our vacation was great. But, like always, it came with a cost. I am still working even though it’s late Friday evening. And I have work to do tomorrow. Plus, it snowing so I’ll have to shovel the driveway too. I’m hoping that I can get everything done and relax on Sunday. Especially since I Monday is not a holiday for me. Have a great weekend. We hope that yours is a three-day one.
Ordinarily, this would be a great day because it would be the start of our Christmas vacation. Now, its “just” another Friday. Not bad; but not as good as if we had a long vacation to look forward to. And, I’ve still have shopping to do for Christmas. I’m not a last-minute shopper; but typically, I’ve waited until I’m on vacation. It used to be so I could shop during the day when I was off and the stores weren’t so crowded. But, there’s not really a reason now. Have a great weekend.
We decided to take picture from the “reverse angle” today. We’ve altered our schedule so we have an earlier night. But, unfortunately, it is still dark outside during our photo session. We love the sun and the warmth that it … Continue reading →
