The wind has been howling outside all evening. Definitely not a time to be outdoors. Its not as cold as it has been recently. But rain and high winds make it just as miserable. It’s just perception; but summer seems … Continue reading
The extremely cold weather that accompanied the polar vortex is finally over. We got a bunch of stow dumped upon us overnight. But even though the roads were terrible and schools and businesses were closed, it didn’t seem so bad since the forecast for this weekend will actually be warm enough to melt a lot of the snow. So I’m really going to enjoy any day that isn’t freezing cold and/or snowing. Have a great weekend. And best of luck to whichever team you are rooting for on Sunday.
The weekend is here! Three days seemed like a long time after Christmas vacation. And, of course, there has already been a crisis. Just once, I would like to be involved early, when things are problems that can be resolved … Continue reading
I upgraded WordPress the software which runs this blog earlier this week. According to the documentation, it was a “major” version update; but, so far, I haven’t discovered any new features. Still I’m sure that there will quick succession of “minor” releases to fix whatever is broken. Hopefully this site will not be affected by any of the inevitable bugs. Have a great weekend.
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.
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.
Anyway, have a great weekend.
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.
