We are getting a break from the rain with a beautiful, sunny weekend! The high today is supposed to be 65F, and tomorrow up to 70, so I think I'll finally be able to wash my poor car, that is now a solid shade of gray, rather than the black color it was when I bought it. LOL

Slept in until 6:30 today, crashing last night at 10. Prep day for Tuesday night's class, reading the next chapter of the textbook, working on the presentation, and finalizing the quiz I'll be handing out. I need to get some exercise in to wake up my brain, but my left hip has been giving my problems the last couple days (my new routine is very plyometric, and my hip flexor isn't happy with all that jumping). Maybe some yoga stretching will be enough.

Happy Saturday!

It's in the mid 40s - windy but sunny. Expecting 59F for a high today. Attending a Black History program today at City Hall.

Congrats on your opening night success Steven.

Maybe get some cardio in at the gym today.

We are heading into a warming trend. 60F today, 65 tomorrow, 70 on Sunday. I'm finally going to have a chance to wash my poor dirty car!

Many meetings today, haircut at 5pm, then the weekend is here! The next two weeks are short, 4-day weeks; the 12th and 15th are both holidays. I think I can handle that!

Have a great Friday, guys!

28F now, 52F later sunshine.
Opening night tonight. We had a very good dress rehearsal last night.
Some of my college students are coming to the play. Not sure what Monday class will be like.
Our youngest is bringing the granddaughters to tonight's performance.
Only downside to all this 'drama' is my writing time has suffered some.
Final performance is Super Bowl Sunday.

Cloudy, a little drizzle, and 54F / 12C. It was 60F overnight, during the day today may climb a few more degrees. Some colder air moving in later tonight with a chance of snow showers. With the warm temps over the past few days, it likely will not stick.

On tap for today: Yoga for abs here at home, cooked breakfast, working now, lunchtime run -- it'll be a taper run as I have a 5K race on Saturday -- then back to work. Tonight: We'll likely stay in as my youngest daughter and b/f will be coming to visit tomorrow night and we'll likely be going out for dinner.

Have a great Thursday gents!

High of 55F today, no rain expected. It is supposed to be near 70F on Sunday for the Super Bowl.

Judge's breakfast today, then a County Office of Education meeting at 10 in Lakeport. Finalizing the Summer class schedule this afternoon, with tons of interruptions in the forecast. Always a challenge, but I'm up for it!

There is a lot of weird weather going around right now. We had a high of 47 today, but by Sunday we're supposed to be in the 70s for the Super Bowl! Really strange....

I worked 12 hours today, 6:30am to 6:30pm. We had a breakfast meeting with our two high school districts' leadership and counselors. It was a good meeting. Very eye-opening information about our potential students that are still in high school, and also a bit heart-breaking. Living in one of the poorest counties in California definitely has its challenges.

Have a great rest of the week, friends!

Warm air ahead of a cold front drove the temps into the upper 60's, record high for the day. A brief but intense thunderstorm moved through around 3PM and knocked our power out! Power came back up around 4:30PM.

So far today: AM yoga here at home, work, strength training workout at the Y, and more work. Tonight: May have to work a little later due to the power outage. Not sure if we'll do take out or go out.

Have a great rest of your hump day gents!

49F with a cold north wind. The morning started of a little cloudy but is clearing. Expecting a windy day mid 50s.
Back in town for a few day, catching up or emails and research requests. Preparing for another trip to North Carolina to kick off home construction.

37F, cold wind, now. Later 39F some sun, cold wind. No wet winter weather in the forecast.

Last night's rehearsal went well. BUT, during notes, for some reason, people were asking questions they should've asked 3 weeks ago. Our director finally told them if their questions helped the cast, ask, otherwise, "Sit on your lips!" It's a little too late to be asking jerk questions about being prompted, or could your grandparents sit on the front row?

Two more rehearsal's until Opening Night.

Sunny and 40F / 4C here on the Delmarva, heading towards the 50 degree mark. Yesterday it was in the 60's. Will be again tomorrow but rain moving in.

Sorry for not checking in over the past few days -- things are HECTIC both on the work and home front.

On tap for today: AM Yoga for abs here at home, trip to grocery store and gas station (DW's minivan needed a fillup), work, going out for a run outside shortly, and then back to work. Tonight: League bowling.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Rain this morning, high of 48F. Today is supposed to be partly cloudy, but definitely cooler than yesterday.

Tonight is my Management class. The 3rd session of 17. Let's see how my one student handles tonight. She left early the first two sessions. I encouraged her to drop the class, but she needs it for her degree. She's way overloaded (6 courses, 18 units total), and has a lot of family drama. There is a quiz next week, and I'm purposely going to give it the second half of class to see if stays for it.

Happy Tuesday!

Sunny and 51F today, rain expected tonight. The lake is now almost 4.5 feet above where it was before the rain began.

Happy February! I did my "first of the month" checks this morning - furnace filter, dogs' heartworm medicine. Ready for a great exercise routine and to jump into the day!

Have a good Monday, guys!

Happy Sunday. Partly cloudy today with a high of 36. Light dusting of snow during the night. Forecast soon could be a major snow fall. Might cramp the commute for Monday. Hope to work from home to start the work week. Attending birthday party for only grand kid today.

Another Spring-like day, 56F now, 67F later sunshine. NOAA no longer has winter weather in the forecast for the next week. More sunshine on the way.

Wife working on play sets and lighting/sound most of the day. I'll have time to catch up on getting another 1500 words done on Episode 2.

SP has some REAL recipes for a 5 day soup de-tox. All the recipes are easy, even for the cooking-phobic, most of the ingredients are found in your grocery produce aisles. I'll be making soups for the next week. Some in the frig, others in the freezer.

Slight chance of rain today, high of 52F. It is quite a bit milder this winter than last year, so far.

Today is prep day for my class Tuesday night. At 2pm is the memorial service for our neighbor's wife at their home. Friends coming for dinner tonight, and maybe a movie.

This morning I'm installing Turbotax, so I can start preparing our tax returns. I'm hoping for a decent refund this year, mostly due to the tax credit for installing our solar panels.

Been on the sidelines the past couple of days with a winter cold. Feel good enough today to hit the gym for some light cardio.

29F and cloudy at 4:00 am in Washington, MI; headed to an afternoon high of 44F with continued clouds. Looks like rain on Sunday (better than snow!)

Cloudy, breezy, 38F / 3C, may climb a few more degrees. Chance of showers later on.

Rough night for me and my 13 year old greyhound Gigi. She started getting me up after 11PM and proceeded to do so every hour until 3AM when I gave her an Imodium (she was going outside due to diarrhea). Needless to say, not much sleep for me, nor was it very sound until after 4AM (I "slept in" until 6:30AM.).

On tap for today: grocery shopping, work, maybe a run -- we'll see --, and more work, and with this being the last day of the month there may be a push to close a few deals.

Tonight: Probably a take out dinner kind of night. Not feeling like a party animal...

TGIF gents!

Wow, Steven - 63F is a real heat wave for you! It's going to be 57 here today. It rained through the night and more showers are expected today, tomorrow, and maybe Sunday.

My boss and I are heading to our parent campus for a couple meetings, educational master planning and creating a safe zone for LGBTQ students. We use the 90-minute drive for our own check-in and to talk about workloads and priorities. I think I enjoy the drive more than the meetings! We should be back home by 5pm to start the weekend.

Tomorrow we're going to our neighbor's home for a memorial service for his wife, who passed away a couple weeks ago. Most of his family is in southern California, and they're all coming up. It will be nice to see them again, even if it's a sad occasion.

Happy Friday!

Sunny and 35F / 2C, heading to the mid 40's.

On tap for today: Yoga for abs practice at home, cooked breakfast, work, just got back from post office (I have to pick up my mail until my mailbox gets fixed -- it was damaged beyond repair last Saturday by a snow plow!), strength training workout at the Y, participating in an infomercial for my WLS Dr, more work. Tonight: We'll see what DW wants to do.

Have a great Thursday gents!

Another round of showers is heading our way. Cooler today than yesterday, high of 59F. The sun and warm temps were great yesterday, but if more rain is coming, BRING IT!

Judge's breakfast today, then a string of meetings. It'll be a good day.

Another mild day with temperatures in the low 60s. Many people on campus are commenting that it feels like Spring.

There's a workshop for high schoolers tonight on campus from 6pm - 9pm, but I don't think I'm going to make it. One long day per week is enough! My management class last night was lively and fun, but I'm ready for a normal night at home tonight!

Have a great Wednesday!

Cloudy and 38F / 3C. According to the NWS, we're at our high for the day.

On tap for today: AM yoga here at home, work, lunchtime run, then back to work. Tonight: we have Mexican leftovers from Monday. We'll see what DW says!

Happy hump day gents!

Students have their first speech due today., then, Not a major one, just short one to get them up and saying something in front of an audience. Most of them scored high on the Stage Fright survey. We'll see.

More writing, then community theatre play rehearsal tonight.

Definitely on a temperature upswing. It is forecast 61F for the high today, and 64F tomorrow! A break from the rain, although this morning the fog is so thick I can't see across the lake.

I have a new exercise video series from Beachbody: Insanity Max 30. It's a big level up from the Focus T25 videos I was doing before, still by the same guy. Many of the moves are similar, so there's not a huge learning curve, but they are kicking my butt in a good way! I'm getting an extra 5 minutes of exercise in the morning, but I feel as if it stays with me for the rest of the day. That will help this long day (work followed by teaching until 9pm). I'm revved up!

Have a great Tuesday, guys!

Sunny and a brisk 17F / -8C, heading into the upper 30's. Should be some melting of the foot+ snow on the ground!

On tap for today: AM yoga here at home, work, some sort of a workout at lunchtime (thinking maybe a run since I did not get out for one over the weekend), and more work. Tonight: Undecided if we'll go out or do takeout.

Have a good work week gents!

It rained in the night, but I slept right through it, then woke up at 4:30 ready to start the day. OK....

Heading into a warming trend - it's supposed to get up to 57F today, and 60 tomorrow. Usually January is our cold month, but this winter the chill was back in November. Must be El Nino.

Watched "The Martian" yesterday afternoon. Really good movie, and Matt Damon is superb. Then we watched "How Green Was My Valley" from 1941. It was not as good as I remembered.

Happy Monday!

46F now, windy...high 46F. Looks like we've got a week of temps in the 40's and some sunshine . No precip predicted.

Back to class today. I'm going to give a quick quiz to find out what they remember from the last time we met, which was 2 weeks ago.

More writing later.

More showers coming, high of 52F. We are definitely having that Pineapple Express weather pattern!

Home projects and housecleaning today, and we've got The Martian on PPV from Dish with a free coupon, so we're going to watch it this afternoon. A good day to relax with a fire in the fireplace!

Happy Sunday!
