Oh, yes, there is a definite chill in the air these last few days, especially in the morning. We've dipped into the mid-30s overnight already, and the mornings are, if not really cold, at least requiring a light jacket for walking the dog. We've had some gray and rainy stuff but also those deep blue … Continue reading Monday Musings: The Times, They Are A-Changing
Where did the time go? It just doesn't seem like it should be Labor Day weekend already. We'll be seeing pumpkins and mums everywhere soon. "Two's Company" is just about done. I have a few chapters to review this week, but it is basically at the point where I am calling it final. Oh, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: Wow! It’s September!
I am taking a sick day. I don't often do that, but this cold/bronchitis/whatever thing seems to have taken up permanent residence, and I am doing my dead-level best to evict it. So, no profound (or not-profound) thoughts today. But here, have a picture I took the other day from our deck. The leaves are, … Continue reading Monday Musings: Out, Damned Sickness, Out!
The BaldMan spent a good portion of Sunday installing the Sonos Connect and hooking up the Advent speakers in my office. Now I can listen to music (or whatever) without the constant hisssssss hisssss from the stupid speakers I had hooked up to the computer. Iz nice! It's October already? Geez, where did September go? … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Can Haz Good Sound!
It has been cooler here in the Northeast lately. I can't say I am not enjoying it. I am not a fan of extreme weather. I don't like really hot or really cold. This beginning of Fall cooling from the heat of summer has felt good. I have had windows open and the AC has … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football
For some, this weekend is the end of Summer. Even though Fall doesn't officially start until later this month, this was the last Summer holiday weekend and the kids are either back in school or heading back in the next few days. So, in practical terms, it does mean the end of long, lazy days … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: The Beat Goes On
Yes, indeed, there is. And even I have to admit that it's kind of nice. This summer was brutal far too often, with high temps and high humidity. The chilly feel that we have now is a rather nice change from that. It's cozy sweater and hoodie weather. Boots and scarves. Even hats and gloves, … Continue reading Monday Musings: There’s a Chill in the Air
This is a great video about a deaf high school football team. It's not long, and certainly worth watching: Silent Night Lights While we are talking football, is the Clemson team's home stadium entrance not the best? Clemson Team Entrance One of the best things about Autumn is the changing colors of the leaves. And … Continue reading Wednesday Wanderings: Deaf HS Football Team, Clemson’s Team Entrance, Pretty Foliage Places in New England, and Massive Chinese Traffic Jam
We got Fitbit Flex wristband trackers this week. We had on of the other models a few years back, but they were clip type things, and we both managed to lose them- several times. We are National Consumer Panel members and we had enough points to get two of the Flex bands. The bracelet type … Continue reading Monday Musings: Flexing, Walking, Gardening, and Season’s Changing
Ah, fall is in the air! And so are footballs! I am quite happy to admit that I am a sports fan. I like most sports, but football is a favorite. Our Sundays will now be filled with the Green Bay Packers, the Oakland Raiders, TV, and football food. Can't think of a better way … Continue reading Monday Musings: Football is Back, Two Chili Cook Offs (with Zombies), Fall, and Food
