Happy hump day gents!

Cool a.m., but back in the 70's for most of the day.

Students that have been in class maybe 3 times this semester, are now showing up, begging to be allowed to make-up the work they've missed. I asked them if they would still have a job if they just quit coming to work? Would their boss let them make up all they work they missed?
And these are all college students,i.e. adults. emoticon

I think we're at that age where it's easy to become a pack rat!

It's a blustery day at the lake. Lots of white caps, winds about 17-20mph. Only getting to a high of 64, I hope!

Quiet day at the office with my boss out. I'm getting stuff done and figuring out my place in the organization though! Today is the start of week 2.

Happy Tuesday!

Steven, I more than understand the pack rat comment. All I have to do is look at my office!

Here on the Delmarva, 46F / 8C, heading to the 60 degree mark with rain moving in later on.

On tap for today, a run this morning, webinar over lunch, bowling tonight.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Cloudy, high today in the 70's. Have a truck load of stuff to take to the community thrift store, and the city re-cycling station.

Did my closet clean out: if I haven't worn it in 6-8 months, then it goes to the thrift store. Taking 7 shirts, 2 pair of slacks in. T-shirts - if they have permanent stains, they become shop rags. I now have 6 shop rags. Why do I pack rat some of this stuff??

Temps in the mid 70s with lots of wispy clouds above. Another beautiful day, minus the sparkles on the water.

Drove halfway around the lake today with my boss to visit a client who is a recent amputee. He has a pretty positive outlook considering his condition. Really inspiring.

I love working for an organization that does so much good for the community!

Heading up to Wilmington this morning. Work meeting, trip to the Y, then a meeting with a new financial adviser.

I arrived at the lake about an hour ago. It's 80F with clear, sunny skies. Hopetully the start of a good week.

Back at the new job tomorrow. Going in early to meet a couple guys who are going out on a small job. Giving them some orientation about the way I hope things will be running in the future. Fingers crossed.

Now I'm out to start planting our new shade plants in our tiny planting areas!

So the good news today is the sun is out, but still a persistent wind and very un-springlike temps! 30F / -1C, heading to the mid 40's. The wind should let up later on.

DW and I are heading to brunch this morning at the same restaurant we went to two weeks ago. We had really horrible service and DW complained via FB. Surprisingly, the restaurant responded quickly and offerred us a return visit on the house. Glad to take them up on their offer!

This afternoon: Plenty of chores to get done. Tonight: Leftovers!

Have a great Sunday gents!

We got up to about 85 today. It was a beautiful day for a walk with the dogs, although Stella wanted to stop whenever she found lush grass in the shade and stretch out. She looked so cute lying in the grass, but she always sprang up when we called her to come.

We had dinner with my parents. They picked up Papa Murphy's delite pizzas, and dad made a salad, homemade sponge cake with ice cream and strawberries for dessert. I would have been fine if I hadn't had that third piece of pizza. Then I knew I had overdone it. We had a great visit though, and that's a blessing.

The calendar says March 28, but sure does not look or feel like spring today! Currently 38F / 3C, wind chill at 27F, may climb a degree or two more but that is it. Have had a few snow showers today. One of my favorite weather geeks said this morning that we'll get at least one more shot of chilly air next weekend, but then he expects that will be it, and spring will set in!

Ran 5 miles indoors this morning, did a whole blood donation, and now I am munching on my lunch and getting caught up on SP. Have some chores to do this afternoon. Tonight: dinner at home tonight. Haven't decided if I'll make it or go get take-out.

Have a great rest of your Saturday gents!

I had a smooth trip to Sacramento with the thermometer right in the mid 70s. Nice to be back for the weekend, and to see friends on Sunday.

Not a fantastic day as far as food was concerned, but tomorrow is another day!

Very light rain and 41F / 5C, heading towards the 50 degree mark today. Even colder the next few days, but at least Sunday will be sunny. Tomorrow we may get a brief snow shower!

On tap for today: Webinar, strength training at the Y, bowling practice. Tonight: probably going out for dinner. We ended up going out for sushi last night. Heavenly!

TGIF gents!

I'm still getting used to my new routine of working every day. I got a little spoiled being on disability. :)

It is supposed to be near 80 today. Clear blue skies and a light breeze. The lake is beautiful today. I'm just home for my lunch break, but I should be able to enjoy it a bit more after work as well.

Had a good ab workout this morning - feeling stronger - and plan to do some chores outside this afternoon for some extra strength training.

Happy Thursday!

Drizzle / fog, and 54F / 12C, heading towards the 70 degree mark with showers and maybe even a thunderstorm later on. Just a one day warm up, then back to late winter temps on Saturday (50's tomorrow).

On tap for today -- run at lunchtime, oil change for my car, quality time on LinkedIn. Tonight: Undecided.

Strange day for weather today. It was raining this morning, which progressed to snow. It was forecast for high 50's. It did warm up later with the sun out and it melted all the snow. What a day. The gang at work celebrated a service occasion for me at work. It was a nice gesture.

Today really felt like spring - cloudy, looking like rain, a little breezy and not so warm. I think it got up into the mid 60s, but just barely. It was my first day on the new job, and I didn't have a lot of time to think about anything but making sure I was doing a good job. My new boss asked if I wanted to grab a bite to eat, and I made the smart choice to ask for a box up front, so I could cut up half of my plate and put it away for another meal.

I'm ready for Wednesday!

Cloudy and 33F / 1C, heading to the low 40's. Warm up coming the next few days.

Did not sleep well last night so it'll be a challenging day to concentrate. I do have a chiropractor appointment shortly, and plan to head to the Y for a gentle 30 minute run. May do something I don't do too often -- take a nap this afternoon!

Tonight: League bowling.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

A busy morning walking around in a t-shirt and shorts on a chilly (for us, anyway) morning of about 55F. I didn't bring any clothes with me to Sacramento, since it was just an overnight. Saw the orthopedist this morning - not good news. Unfortunately, I will have to find a new ortho up here in Clearlake, since I start my new job tomorrow. I can't even think of having surgery until I've been on the job a few months, but at least I'll be able to plan it out. The doctor said that I shouldn't wait too long, but I can wait for a little while.

It's partly cloudy up at the lake, which should mean a gorgeous sunset tonight.

Have a good night, gentlemen!

Clear skies but a chilly 29F / -2C, heading to the mid 40's. At least we are not getting snow like the midwest.

Busy day today. Dr appointment, job fair, workout. Tonight: Likely leftovers. Works for me!

Have a good work week gents!

Thunderstorms may be headed our way this morning. The clouds kept the temperature at about 60 all night. I'm afraid I'm going to miss them, because I'm heading back to Sacramento tonight so I can see my orthopedist in the morning. Then I head back to the lake with the dogs, so I can start my new job on Tuesday.

Happy Sunday, all!

Its a cold morning in Utica MI. 20F and partly cloudy at 7 am headed to a high of 39F by 4 pm today. This is typical March weather for us; 60F one day and 20F the next. Can't wait for April to get here!

Clear skies and 40F / 4C, heading to the mid 40's. Not quite as nice as yesterday but still better than Friday's snow event.

Just about ready to make the trek north for my first half marathon. I'll blog about the results after I get back home.

Have a great Sunday gents!

And the snow arrived as scheduled! It is covering the ground but not sticking to the pavement, and should start to changeover shortly to rain. Currently 32F / 0C.

Had an early Dr appt (podiatrist), and since he is right near my YMCA, went ahead and got my strength training workout in. This afternoon I'll be heading to the bowling alley for some practice. Tonight: depends on how DW feels. I know we are both pretty tired after a hectic week, so I would not be shocked if she decides to eat at home, but I never know...

TGIF gents!

Back at the lake - it was 51F this morning when I got up, heading for a high of 78. It's going to be a gorgeous day. We're getting the upstairs recarpeted today, and I'm going to have lunch at my new office, so I can get to know the team.

I couldn't ask for a better Thursday!

Have a great day, gents!

Fair skies and 29F / -2C, heading to the mid 40's after a very un-springlike morning low of 26F! Even worse: snow moving in overnight, although we'll get no more than an inch or two.

Busy day ahead! Usual work stuff, last run before my first half marathon on Sunday, then a trip to a job fair and then a stop at the Apple Store, as DW's Mac is once again DOA! Guessing the same issue I had with mine, where the system board will need to be replaced.

Have a great Thursday gents!
