Sun, steak an salmon

Leave a comment

The tan got a boost from the outdoor work Sunday. Feels good to get that exercise. Grilled up a steak and a nice piece of salmon for dinner. My mother-in-law liked it so victory was had. And the sun lasted till I had finished grilling which was great because that was a nice thunderstorm that rolled through afterward.

Another end to the weekend. What a bummer. And almost the end of a strange summer. That is somewhat depressing, but there is still a lot of nice weather to enjoy.

I’m going to have to work on some planning for the winter season. My better half and I talked yesterday about getting the upstairs fireplace fixed so we can use that this year. That will keep me busy chopping some wood. It’s not like I’m going to run it to heat the house even though it does have a wood-burning insert with it that will run you out of the room and heat the upstairs fairly well.

But I also need a plan to stay mentally fresh during what always is a stressful and somewhat depressing time of year for me. On the good side, I won’t have to worry about commuting in bad weather so that takes a lot off the plate. But that also depends on being extended to work from home after the new year.

Whatever the case, I’ll make the best of it.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • If I were to pick a week without TV this would be it.
  • But then again, I’m really enjoying the NBA playoffs. I’ve got to get my hoop fix now because the fall is looking suspect for colleges.
  • I’m working on my photo site again and that feels great.
  • Pick projects to work on that make you smile.
