As you can see, The Wife is just starting to get a tan. We’ve had several days of sunny weather recently. Its only been a few days but it seems that summer may finally be here. That would be very good fortune as our annual summer vacation (for Independence Day) is next week. The extended forecast looks promising; but we’ve been disappointed many times this year. For now, we still have high hopes.
We’re hopeful that we may finally be able to row sometime this weekend even though the river forecast not promising. This year we’ve experienced the worst conditions for outdoor activities that we’ve ever had since we started. It’s a very minor annoyance in the grand scheme of things. However, it is somewhat frustrating that wet and dreary has become “normal”. We’d like to think that summer will bring some actual summer weather. Wish us luck and have a great weekend.
Amazingly, our basement did not flood despite our home being without power to run the sump pump for several hours while the ground was saturated with water due to melting snow and heavy rain fall. We were very lucky. The sump pump cycled on and off for a long time after the power came back on. It never used to run even in the spring. Now, with the rising water table over the last few years, we will probably be purchasing a battery backup in the very near future.
Have a great weekend!
This weekend looks like a good one to get in the swimming pool. Unfortunately, our pool heater will not ignite. With any luck, the water will be warm enough that it won’t matter. We’re going to get it fixed since there is not any point in having a pool that you can’t use. But, we’ve had certainly enough broken things already this year. Hopefully we will be lucky and it will be something minor and we can. We’ve definitely had more than our share of bad luck recently. Have a great weekend. Maybe our next post will be about relaxing in the pool.
Posting another “rerun” today. We still haven’t decided what to do about our camera. I have determined that the battery kinda works if I charge it shortly before use. It just loses power rapidly when it’s not in use. Probably the expected behavior after taking over 10,000 photos; but, its still a nuisance. Happy Friday everyone.
No “Christmas tree” photos again this year since for one reason or another we never, ever seem to have the house all to ourselves. We don’t like a house that’s never just us. But we don’t like a house that’s … Continue reading
We’re keeping somewhat of the same angle that we used last week; but were actually recording the image in the mirror so it’s kinda different and kinda the same. Let us know what you think. BTW, there was a lot of background noise so the is no audio. It would be nice to have an empty house if only for a few hours.
