Our new refrigerator is great. Our only “complaint” is that it doesn’t make ice as fast as the old one even though the freezer is colder. And, of course, it was gigantically expensive. We’ll have a few cool days that we will not need much, if any, ice for our sports water bottles and the ice maker will eventually fill up. But, we’ll remember the cost for a long time. Not having a lot of low-cost options is one of the unfortunate realities of our kitchen.
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that summer had just started and we were enjoying the long days; but, sadly, it’s become apparent that summer is definitely starting to wane. The evenings are cooler and sunset is 45-minutes earlier than it used to be. We still have plenty of time to have a good row. But, its usually getting dark by the time we are home. It’s been a great summer that has zoomed by all too quickly.
Our “broken” refrigerator can keep things cool so long as we don’t open it. So, we’re using it for a few items that don’t fit in the other one. Until the new one arrives. We’ve had a LOT of things break this year. So, in addition to spending a bunch of money, we’ve often found ourselves waiting for the new ones to get delivered.
Here are a couple of pictures from the second group. Unfortunately, the is not much in between when positions were reversed since I didn’t; notice right away, that the camera was not taking pictures and I wouldn’t have stopped and … Continue reading
Here is another segment of the movie we made this week. It is shorter than what we posted on Tuesday; but still higher resolution. Enjoy.
We are doing another movie while we can. Hopefully the bed isn’t too loud yet. The movie is higher resolution and slightly longer than what we typically post so the .MP4 file is big. It has been many, many years; but I still remember the days when we couldn’t post such a large file.
I noticed on the weather app that sunset today is still after 9PM. But, this week will probably be the last week. We like the long summer days since they give us plenty of time to row, wash and inspect … Continue reading
We’ve done some movies, but its been a while since we posted a gallery. So, here is the first one in a long time. Next time, if the lighting is right, we’re going to put the camera at the foot … Continue reading
Now that the air conditional isn’t so loud and doesn’t have an annoying vibration, we’ve moved the bed back against the outside wall. It was only a few inches away from the wall before. But, I never quite got used to the bed not being next to at least one wall. The bed is still new so I don’t think it increases the noise from the bed springs. Can you tell any difference?
As you can see from our tan lines in the picture, we’ve really been getting some sun the past month, and especially this week. This week has been glorious. We’ve rowed every day and gotten in the pool as well. We really, hate to see it come to a close. It will be many, many months before our next vacation.
