Mid 80's today.
Pat I usually check my blood sugar levels on the weekend also. Just seem to have more time to do so. Congrats on your low numbers. I too have been eating smarter so my scores don't bounce around so much. Keep up the good work.

Sunny and 69F / 21C, dew point also at 69F, heading to the low 80's. Chance of showers late tonight.

Wednesday mornings I do my weekly weigh in and do a blood sugar check. Weigh in went fine -- back under 180 -- but I was really happy about my blood sugar reading -- 110!! One of the best AM readings in a LONG time! #'s have been trending downward lately, so maybe my body is finally figuring out how to manage blood sugar better again. This is a BIG deal!

Busy work day ahead. Not sure what the game plan is for this evening yet...

HUMP DAY gents! ENJOY!

A hot and humid day ahead. I will get in a run this morning before it gets too hot. Then I meet with a group of incoming first year students for lunch today.

Stay started out very pleasant, then, Whammo!, summer heat in the 90's here in the SW-MO Ozarks.

Mostly sunny and 72F / 22C, heading to the low 80's. Dew point at 70F, so a bit humid out there, but the midwest heat does not appear it is coming here.

Got some mostly good news from the sports Dr I saw yesterday. Knee is structurally OK, but the pain I was feeling a month ago is due to arthritis, and as we all know, that does not go away. But...I have found that running a little slower has made a difference. I barely feel any pain, so I think the lesson learned is train easy and save up the hard running for races. May put that to the test later this week -- there is a 5K race Thursday evening or Saturday morning, so need to decide which one I want to do.

Steady but not crazy work day ahead, organizational meeting for the 2014/15 bowling season is tonight. May get in some practice afterwards as I am planning to get in some golf on Friday afternoon.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

August heat is here. Upper 90s for the next week or so and very humid. Had a great time at the golf tournament yesterday. Our team played well but we couldn't make putts. Overdid it a bit on the dinner but not too bad (too many desserts). The ribs were awesome.

Fair skies and 71F / 22C, heading to the low 80's. Chance of showers tonight.

Surprisingly unsore (is that a word?) after an enjoyable 10K run yesterday. I have a Dr appointment at 14:00 with a sports Dr, but the subject the appointment, my right knee, is really not feeling all that bad. I thought for sure the run would set it off, but I ran at a fairly slow pace (which I have been doing as of late) and I think that has allowed some quality healing. But it'll be worth time to see the Dr. and establish a relationship.

Steady both not crazy work day ahead. This evening DW and I will likely be making a pet store run, as we are getting low on doggie treats and canned dog food.

Have a good work week gents!

Starting off with heavy fog and temps in the upper 60s. Heading for a high near 90 with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of some rain this afternoon. I have a charity scramble golf tournament today so it should be a fun day and I sure hope the chance of rain doesn't come through. I'll try and go to the convocation this morning to help welcome the new students and then head to the course.

Busy but productive day...temp hit a high of 83F, but dew point was up in the mid 60's so felt much warmer, especially when I was running this afternoon. DW and I slept in -- if you call 08:00 sleeping in (which we do!). Breakfast out, trip to Sam's Club, visit to a local winery (although I had not wine), a nice easy 6.2 / 10K run, then dinner at home watching LLWS.

Sleep well gents!

Golfed The Preserve in Catalina, AZ this morning from 7 am to 10:30 am. Shot 84. Very nice morning, clear skies, 74 to 84 degrees during the round, mild winds. Partly sunny and 96 degrees in Tucson at 4:25 pm, but it only feels like 95 degrees due to a 15 mph wind.

Hazy sunshine, but still very comfortable temp of 73F / 23C, heading to the low 80's. Dew point is up a bit but still manageable.

After I finishy my SP updates, it's off to my Saturday chores and activities -- housecleaning, long run, mowing (I miss my self propelled mower tho!), cleaning the Keurig, brushing doggie teeth, etc., etc. It's all good!

Have a great Saturday gents!

I woke up to a nice steady rain. Put a damper on my plans for a morning run but I'll take the rain - we really need it. DW needs me to take care of a bunch of things so I'll get them done this morning and hopefully get out for my run later if it doesn't get too warm - the forecast high is around 90.

Another beautiful day here on the Delmarva. 64F / 18C, after an overnight low of 59 -- very cool for this time of year -- heading to just the upper 70's later today with continued low humidity. Can't beat this for August!

Our new heating and A/C system is all installed. With this particular system (Lennox) comes a fully programmable and remotely accessible thermostat, and being the techno-weenie that I am, I love it!! Already have the Lennox app installed on my phone, and actually used it to raise the temp after I demo'd how quiet the A/C unit was to my wife.

Speaking of wife, she is home sick today. She was not feeling well when she got home yesterday, and was up at least 1x during the night bringing dinner back up!

emoticon

Today is the first day of my transition into my new job. Working on my old job in the AM, new job in PM. I have a bunch of info to go over from my new manager this afternoon that she has sent me. I'm very excited!!

Also getting an x-ray on my right knee in prep for a visit to a sports Dr next Monday. The knee was hurting a lot worse a few weeks ago. It is better now, but I figure it is best to have it looked at to make sure all is OK.

TGIF gents!!

Looks like a nice but warm day coming up. Starting off in the mid 60s and heading for the low 90s with partly cloudy skies. I have to proctor a test at 10 am and then some racquetball at noon. I've got one meeting with a student at 2 and will try to get out for a round of golf at the course where we play our tournament on Monday.

Sunny and 69F / 21C, heading to the upper 70's. Another picture perfect day here on the Delmarva!

Our favorite Mexican restaurant has opened a new location very close to us, so we went to their pre-grand opening last night. It was packed! They are still getting the kitchen and bar staff kinks worked out, normal for a new location, so we did have a longer wait than normal, but we expected it and glad to have helped them. We were rewarded with 50% reduction on our food bill and grand opening t-shirts!

HVAC company on the home stretch in getting the new heating and A/C system finished up. Should be done by lunchtime today.

Have a great Thursday gents!

Another lovely day with clear blue skies but it's starting to warm up again with a forecast high near 90. I have several morning meetings so I need to head to the office early so fitness will have to wait until the afternoon.

I guess we got to get sometime. This summer has been so unusual. It is the first time in 20 years that our electric company has dropped our monthly payment due to the lower utility usage. I am not complaining at all.

Its been a very mild Ozark summer. But our hill folk weather forecasters are telling us that September will be our summer, hot and humid.

Partly cloudy and 70F / 21C, heading to the mid 80's with lowering humidity. We got a little over 1.25" of rain yesterday, dodged the really heavy bands of rain that hit NJ Shore.

HVAC company back this morning to complete the heating and A/C replacement. No A/C last night, but we all survived! Hopefully we won't have to do another night, but if so at least the temp is supposed to drop into the lower 60's.

Finally got to the Dr yesterday to get cold checked out -- turned out to be Sinusitis, so on meds and have noticed a little less pressure in the sinuses. Hoping my right ear clears up!

Happy hump day gents!

Another beautiful day. Sunny skies and around 60 degrees this morning and heading for the low 80s. I've got a day long conference call so I'll be stuck inside most of the day but I am going to head out early to get in a run before the conference starts.

58 degrees in St. Louis at 6:30 a.m. Going to be a beautiful day high in the upper 70's. Who could ask for more in August! What a summer. What worries me with as cool of a summer as we have had, what is our winter going to be like?

Mostly cloudy, occasional spits of rain, and 78F / 26C. May climb another degree or two but that is it, and showers moving in later on, some heavy.

Got a call first thing this morning from our HVAC company wanting to do the install of our new heating and A/C system. As luck would turn out, good day to do it with the cooler temps and the the dogs still at the kennel getting baths. They already have most of the heating system torn out (in our attic, another good reason for them being here today).

Head cold is now in its 2nd week so I am going to the Dr this afternoon. Chatted with one of my wife's cousin yesterday and her husband had same thing and turned out to be pneumonia, so that I DON"T need!

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Got home around 17:00 from our trip to Baltimore area. The funeral was very nice (well as nice as funerals can be.). Thankfully we connect with my wife's family at least 1x/year so it's not like we wait for a death in the family to get together. "Aunt Polly" was a very strong lady -- she will be missed!

Quiet evening here at home. Leftovers are on tap. Did get a nice 40 minute run early this morning.

Have a good work week gents! My work week starts tomorrow.

A little foggy to start the day. Looks like partly cloudy skies in the forecast and temps getting into the upper 80s. I need to take care of some yardwork this morning and then maybe ride my bike to the office later this afternoon if it's not too hot.

Hey Dennis, we almost were in the same place...had planned to be in Tucson this weekend. But read below, as my plans changed...

Here on the Delmarva, fair skies and 72F / 22C, heading to the low 80's. Humidity still pretty decent.

Our original plans were to be heading to Arizona tomorrow, but we got a call yesterday that DW's aunt had passed away early Thursday. So we moved our Arizona plans to next month, anticipating a funeral over the weekend or early next week. Still no word on a firm date, so thinking Monday. This aunt was my favorite -- my "drinking buddy"! Won't be quite the same at the next family reunion at the end of this month.
emoticon

Working just a 1/2 day today -- this afternoon I have some errands to run now that we will be around this weekend (the refrigerator is pretty well cleaned out!), plus a workout at the Y and a trip to the bowling alley for some more practice.

TGIF gents!
