It finally cooled down around midnight after a very warm day yesterday. I need those ocean breezes to sleep well! Today it's only (!!!) supposed to be 79. It looks beautiful outside right now.

Have a great day, everyone!

Sunny and 52F / 11C, heading to the mid 60's.

Sorry I have been absent the past week, but it has been a very busy time for me. Thankfully back home and back into whatever I call a "normal" routine.

On tap for today: Job-related phone calls (at least 2, maybe 3), a 30 minute run, and if time allows, a trip to my credit union. Tonight: Dinner out with DW and her work.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Happy Monday!

We're heading to a high of 89 with no breeze and clear skies. The Alaska jet stream is gone, and the high pressure ridge settles in. These weather patterns tend to stay put for a while, so we'll see temps in the 80s all week. Not that I'm complaining.

Now if we can do something about the midge population. I seriously think they could take over the world. They're not the biting kind, but they're everywhere!

Have a great week, Team!

Cool, cloudy, and in the 60's.

Wife scored us some tickets to go see the Rolling Stones in KC. Don't whether I'm excited to see them in concert for the first time in my life, wife saw them at Hyde Park, UK, or its watching a bunch of over 70 rockers perform.

Mid 50's today. Rain and thunderstorms. The Rockies have today's game with promotions for "bicycle to the park". Maybe only the real bike enthusiasts will attend the game.

Clear, sunny skies with a light breeze, high of 74 today.

We are going to an Olive Festival at one of our local wineries that also makes their own olive oil. We'll get to tour the plant and maybe sample some of their offerings. They have a Blood Orange flavored oil that is our new favorite to dress a salad. You get a lot of flavor from a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar (the one from Trader Joe's in the small, square bottle is our favorite) and a teaspoon of the blood orange olive oil, a little salt and pepper. Delicious and healthy!

The jet stream coming down from Alaska is keeping us cool. Expecting a high of 64 degrees. We're heading to Santa Rosa for shopping and Costco, and new friends are coming over tonight for drinks and dinner. It will be a fun outing to get to know some of our new neighbors.

Happy Saturday, friends!

A major cold front coming down from Alaska has made us windy and chilly, at least by California standards. We'll get into the mid 60s today, but just barely. Possibility of rain tomorrow.

I'm glad it's Friday! We have a big day planned for tomorrow, including a trip to Costco and other big box stores in Santa Rosa. Four gentlemen are coming over tomorrow for dinner. I'm hoping to smoke a tri-tip roast on the Traeger. The guys are all part of a social group that meets once a month to have dinner and watch a movie. We're excited about the opportunity to make new friends here.

It cooled down to about 72 today, but still beautiful. We had a great sunset, but the wind is doing a number on our outdoor plants.

Tomorrow is the start of the weekend! I hope you all have great plans!

Glad to be in Vegas during SE Michigan's dip into cold weather. It is sunny and nice here with daytime temps in the high 70's and lows at night in the mid 50's. Will be back in Michigan tomorrow.

High of the week today, 68 degrees. Low percent chance of thunderstorm. Could need the moisture though. Rain should have come in yesterday's Rockies home game in the 8th. We gave up 4 runs and ended up losing 7-6. Drats!

Slight chance of showers today, high in the mid 60s. Fog is rising from the lake this morning.

I'm attending a business networking luncheon today, hosted by an interior designer in Lakeport. It will be interesting to see who I meet that can help Habitat build more houses! I will try to keep my self control at the meal...

Low pressure system is coming in, so our temperatures will be dropping into the 60s. Don't feel sorry for us. emoticon

I hope to control myself around the pizza my boss is bringing in for lunch today. I have a lunch meeting tomorrow, so I need to be extra good. Being this close to my goal weight, I don't want to do anything to mess it up!

Happy Tuesday!

Clouds are clearing, wind is picking up some, temp at 58F / 14C, heading to the mid 60's.

On tap for today: follow-up on my interview from yesterday, which I think went well, chiropractor appointment (much needed!), lunchtime run, and prepping for our trip to Oklahoma tomorrow. DD #2 is coming to dog/housesit, first time we've tried this.

Tonight: drive to BWI, overnight stay at the Holiday Inn.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Beautiful sunny day, high 74 or 76. The next two months are predicted to be unseasonably warm in Washington. I welcome that, but am worried we may have water shortages this summer. We got almost no snow pack this winter in the mountains.

Clouds breaking here in the DC area (McLean, VA) -- 67F / 19C, heading to the upper 70's with severe storms moving through later on. Hopefully I'll be on the road heading back home before that occurs.

BIG day today! Face to face interview for a job I REALLY want starting at 9:30AM. Should have a good idea by the time the four interviews are done as to where I stand.

Have a good work week gents!

Attended a memorial for a colleague and golfing partner. Man should not pass after only 3 years of retiring. I guess tomorrow is not promise to no one. I will miss him as well as his wife and many others. The ceremony was well attended. The memorial was held at the same location as his retirement, some 3 years ago.

It's in the mid-50s this morning with a predicted high of 86. Rain might be coming later in the week. Hope so.

Starting to unpack today and try to get things organized. As much as we thought about how we would live in this house, it's still an adjustment with a lot of "figuring out" still to do.

We should be out of Sacramento before it gets too hot. It's still going to be in the 70s when we get to the lake this afternoon. I'm feeling good about the move after a good night's sleep.

Eating isn't exactly off track, but I need to get more fruits and vegetables again. That's in the plan for the coming week, for sure.

Happy Saturday!

Scheduled to hit 44 today. Feel much warmer than that, as the sun is shining and melting the snow.

We're headed for a high of 82 with clear skies. It was another warm night too.

I'm leaving work at 2pm today so we can drive to Sacramento before rush hour gets too bad. We have to stop by and look at a wheelchair lift that Habitat is buying, to verify that it's in the condition that the sellers claim. Then we'll pick it up tomorrow in the UHaul after we load the truck with the rest of our furniture. The move is almost done! We'll be back at the lake tomorrow afternoon.

We're having pizza with my folks tonight, since there's nothing left in the fridge at the old house.

Lightly raining and 55F / 13C, heading towards the 70 degree mark later on and maybe a thunderstorm late today.

The next several days are going to be hectic! Thankfully we should be able to relax come next Wednesday when we are in Oklahoma visiting our good friends. Until then, all systems go!

On tap for today: interview practice, strength training, house cleaning, a fun trip to the bowling alley. Tonight: I'm thinking we'll go out, although we do have Mexican food leftovers.

TGIF gents!!

Weird weather today. It may hit 45, but it snowed most of this morning. It was about 80 on Tuesday. Aeration and fertilization of lawns would have been great if done yesterday.

It barely cooled off overnight - it was 60 when I let the dogs out at 5:45am. Heading to a high of 80 or so.

My boss is out today, so I'm on my own. I'm starting to feel confident that I can handle this job on a daily basis. Tomorrow we head back to Sacramento in the early afternoon. Can't wait for Saturday to be over!

Mostly sunny and 54F / 12C, heading to the upper 60's. PERFECT day for an outside run! Just two days before my next race, the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware Run for the House 5K. This is the 4th time I've run this race, and is the first one I ever ran in.

On tap for today: rehearsing for my interview on Monday! Plus a run at lunchtime (short speed run), and some laundry. Tonight: Probably eating at home, not sure if we'll do leftovers or order out.

Have a great Thursday gents!

It's in the low 40s with a high of 75 in the forecast. The rest of the week we'll be in the 80s.

Steve is going back to Sacramento to bring back another load of our stuff in preparation for our big move on Saturday. It's almost done, although we found out that the buyers have until tomorrow to remove their financing contingency, even though we already accepted a reduced price based on the appraisal. Fingers crossed that there are no more hurdles or problems.

Time to go work out! Have a great Wednesday!

Sunny and a bit chilly -- 52F / 11C -- but heading to the mid 60's.

BUSY day ahead! Two very important webinars, strength training, filing my dad's tax return, and a little housecleaning before DD comes to visit. She is going to house / dog sit next week, so we need to show her "the ropes"! After that, we'll be going out for dinner -- likely Mexican food!

Happy hump day gents!

Only in the low 60s today, but it was still a beautiful today. I got out of work at 3pm (Board of Directors meeting - everyone was dismissed so that they could meet undisturbed), and got a lot of work done at home.

I hope everyone had a great Tuesday!

Same here on the Delmarva WRITEMANN1 -- rain/mist/fog and 62F / 17C, climbing another degree or two but with heavy rain moving in. Could get upwards of 3"! Thank goodness I got my mowing done!

Another busy day ahead. Big tasks are to get taxes filed for both DW and I as well as my dad, easy run, Dr. appt. Tonight: League bowling.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Cloudy and 49F / 9C, heading to the low 70's with the sun breaking through later on.

Busy next few weeks, so very important I stay on track each day. Today's plan: continues job search, fill out application for a position I'll be interviewing for next Monday, strength training workout at lunchtime, complete mowing. Tonight: leftovers and Dancing with the Stars!

Have a good work week gents!

Beautiful spring day here on the Delmarva. The temp on the thermometer showed we got to 61F, but the sun was brilliant and it felt much warmer! I was in t-shirt and shorts and was quite comfortable. No wind today either!

Bought a new self propelled mower at Lowe's yesterday and broke it out today! I sure missed having one after my last one went toes up in the middle of last year. Also got some more weeding done. Tonight: Leftovers, Red Sox - Yankees game, but may have to break away for an hour to catch the season premiere of Game of Thrones!

Have a great rest of your Sunday gents!

We're leaving Sacramento this morning, where it will get up to about 80, and headed back to the lake, where it's still 10 degrees cooler. It is supposed to get warmer during the week. I need to finish my tea and get dressed so we can load up the truck.

Happy Sunday!

Supposed to be in the high 70s today. We are packing up the rest of the small stuff this morning, and trying to sell some of the furniture. We got a nibble on the bed, but none of the other things.

Dinner with friends tonight, since we are turning in our DSL box to the provider this afternoon. We hope to borrow the neighbor's wifi to get us through tomorrow morning, or I'll try turning my phone into a wifi hotspot.

Happy Weekend, all!

Mostly sunny skies and 57F / 14C, heading to the mid 60's today and breezy at times. The storms stayed to the south of us yesterday.

On tap for today: moving the wifi security router in the basement to a better location, 5 mile run, some badly needed cleaning of my office. Tonight: heading to a dinner and show with a very good Elvis impersonator. Not our typical Saturday evening for sure!

Have a great Saturday gents!

Drove back to Sacramento for our next-to-last weekend at the old house. Appraisal came in $5K too low, we told buyers it was ok as long as they didn't ask for any repairs. They agreed. Whew! Dodged a bullet!

It was about 72 today in Clearlake, about 79 in the valley once we got over the mountains. It feels weird to be back at the house, now that it's not totally ours anymore.

We are selling a bunch of furniture on Craigslist. Know anyone who needs a queen bed, sofa, loveseat, a couple dining tables, and some accessory tables (media stand, end tables)? Message me privately. Pick up in South Sacramento/North Elk Grove.

Foggy, misty, and 44F / 7C, temps rising to the mid 70's with a chance of severe thunderstorms late this afternoon / early this evening.

On tap for today: early trip to the Y for strength training, career fair at lunchtime, bowling practice this afternoon. Tonight: depends on the weather -- if the storms hit at the time they are expecting, we'll probably stay at home tonight.

TGIF gents!

We got up to 68F today! We're starting to warm up again, and I couldn't be happier. I drove with my boss up the mountain to a little town (Cobb, CA) where we met with the most wonderful potential clients. I sure hope we can do some work for them.

I weighed myself when I got home from work, and I was below my weight from two weeks ago. I'll take it! I'm only 2 pounds from my goal now! WOOHOO!

Mid to high 40's today. Cool but not cold. Many acquaintances lately seemed to have passed or are retiring. What a weird stretch of time.

Another cloudy and cool day -- 40F / 4C, edging up to 47F. Warmer air moves back in tomorrow, but with storms as well.

On tap for today: 2nd phone interview at noon, speed training run in the afternoon. Tonight: Probably going out for dinner. Hoping to celebrate a successful 2nd interview (success = in person interview on 4/20).

Have a great Thursday gents!

Mostly sunny with highs around 60F. A good day at work, and mostly good with food until dinner tonight with our neighbors. Good wine and better conversation!
