Friday Featurette #331

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherI had to work very late today which is not the best way to start the weekend. I almost didn’t get to the gym in time enough to get a workout in before it closed. Plus, I still had a few things to finish up after I got home. But, now I’m done with everything and ready for a quiet, relaxing weekend. Seems like I’ve had a lot of long days recently. ‘m not going to worry about that now. Besides going to the gym, I have nothing else I need to do. Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #330

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherIt probably doesn’t matter to anyone besides me; but I spent a lot longer that you would expect correcting/removed an extra zero I accidentally included in the file name of several photos. With all the new features that have been added, WordPress still doesn’t natively include a way to rename a media item. So, you have to rename the file and update the database manually from outside WordPress; including all the generated thumbnails and their associated metadata that are never used. That’s a mistake I won’t be making again for a long, long time. I have no desire to repeat such a tedious process.

P.S. See my fitness tracker on my left wrist. I think I got more “steps” this time.

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherThe 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 Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherIn a replay of last weekend, a big snowstorm is once again forecast for this weekend. After the snow stops temperatures are supposed to drop to below zero and freeze everything in one of the worst combinations possible. Plus, 45mph winds are expected. We’ve stocked up on groceries, I’ve gotten gas for the snow blower and I’ve located my snowmobile suit. We don’t need to go anywhere except for perhaps a quick workout if the gym is open. Otherwise, we’ll be home in a comfortable environment. Say warm. Stay safe. And have a great weekend.

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherThe long days at work are continuing, and Christmas vacation seems even more distant, if possible. I don’t want/need to leave work early on Friday. I would be happy to just be able to leave on time. And not receive a bunch of emails in the evening and over the weekend that make me already behind on Monday. A big snowstorm is forecast to move through the area. Stay safe and have a great weekend.

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherI 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.

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherOne 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 Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherThe 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.

The Husband and The Wife enjoying a moment togetherWe 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.
