Tuesday Two For #277

The Wife getting The Husband readyWhenever it’s cold and we have trouble turning on the fireplace, I think about fixing it. Sadly, it’s such a gigantic nuisance that I still haven’t gotten around to it. First, I have to remove the fake logs and the all lava rocks so I can reach the gas piping. Then I need to take out both the thermopile and the thermocouple. Clean them up enough to read the part numbers so that I can find replacements. Then put everything back together. Order the new parts. And do everything all over again in a week or two when the parts arrive. And that’s assuming that the needed parts are readily available. One of the problems with everything being available on the internet is that very little is available at local stores. And this is definitely the type of involved disassembly that I would prefer not to do twice. An ideal indoor task for a cold, rainy weekend in the summer. If I don’t forget when its ben months since we turned on the fireplace.

The Husband and The Wife getting warmed upI 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.

Traditional Thursday #257

Our camera shut off for some unknow reason when we were making a movie so we only have the beginning, unfortunately. It wasn’t the battery, it just stopped recording. So, you’ll have to use your imagination for what happens next. Even though there really isn’t a model that appeals to us, it’s looking more and more like we need a replacement.

Tuesday Two For #228

The Wife getting The Husband ready for actionWe’ve had two days of unseasonably warm weather so, of course snow is forecast for tomorrow. But, at least, we are already a week into February and haven’t had any big snow storms. Warmer days when it’s still gray and windy outdoes aren’t the best. But, they are still a lot better that or normal winter weather. Were still longing for some sun yet happy that it’s not super-snowy and freezing cold.
