Feeling Good

Based on the forecast provided by Accuweather, the next two weeks will reach the mid-80sF here, but feel like they’re in the mid-90s.  Granted, I have to take that with a grain of salt because . . .

Just One Thing

Today was the most adventurous day I’ve had in a long time.  I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

Feeling Better

It’s raining right now and a cool breeze is rolling in – perhaps the last such breeze we’ll see here in the Upper Midwest in nearly a week.  Until tonight’s celestial lightning show, it was hot – nearly 100ºF – and humid.  We’re expecting more of the same tomorrow . . . and the day…

The Wasteland

I’ve mentioned before – at least I think that I have – that I’ve been alone now since quarantining began.

12:31 PM

I have not stepped outside of my home in over a week.

The Common Theme

It’s Christmas! You wouldn’t know it, judging by the weather.  We in the Upper Midwest are looking at a week in the 50ºF range for most of the week.  In fact, it was so warm and clear yesterday, that I avoided the nonsense that is known as “the mall,” and got my car washed (for…

That Kind of Week, pt.1

This has been a crazy week.  Not your ordinary kind of crazy, but that special once-in-blue-moon type of nonsense-filled period with the emotional roller-coaster added, free of charge.  The kind of week that, when it’s over and after you’ve replayed the week’s events in your mind for the umpteenth time, you’re stuck looking around with…

Here’s a Tip

Something happened and I’m curious as to whether my take on things is the correct one. To wit:  I took the Little Woman out to eat at a sports bar/restaurant.  Nothing big or fancy; it’s actually one of our favorite places to hang out, when either of us has a few extra bucks.  The waitress…

Cold

It is cold outside.  Heck, it’s cold inside, too. Between snowstorms and below-zero temps, I am struggling to find a coherent reason for why I remain in the Upper Midwest.  I just can’t seem to come up with one, yet . . . I know that I’ll never leave.  It’s just so daunting to deal…

The Green Chair

Well, the end of the term has finally arrived, and I couldn’t be happier. It wasn’t a bad term; no, far from it.  It went faster than it should have, to be honest.  It wasn’t the wackiest or the craziest or even the most obnoxious term I’ve had.  Yet still, I’m happy that it’s over. …

A “Better” Person

Got up this morning and my phone weather app said it was 71ºF at 7:30 am.  That’s not with the humidity factored in – do that, and it was allegedly 80ºF. At 7:30 am! The day hasn’t even started yet and it’s already burning me up. Of course, Accuweather is predicting rain, but it’s clear…

Slow News Day

It’s been two weeks, and surprisingly . . . I still don’t have much to say. That’s not to say that things haven’t been happening to me.  I’m still a bit peeved about that eight-hour ER visit, and the fact that I’ll have to wait another two weeks to take an examination that my physician…
