Wednesday and we're back :)

Missed yesterday,  but today the copier is working better, the kitchen digging is mostly done and Jake & Crisp are at a focus group (Crisp will make $75!).

Nice,  cool but the odd break of sunshine, 48.1F.

Tuesday afternoon

Didn't get to the woods yesterday, just went to Rye Town Park with the ball launcher- lousy weather (the snow was long gone and it had turned to rain by that point) and I didn't get out of work 'til gone 5.

But we're here today, and it's warmer with breaks of sunshine, 48.5F. They're saying 3-4" of snow tomorrow night, but it'll probably be like yesterday's little burst and melt almost immediately :)

Super Saturday

Great day for a walk today- sunny and breezy and not as warm as yesterday (48.8F), just lovely. They're forecasting snow for mid week, but if it happens I don't think it will stick.

Hey Bulldog

Mono Masters (2009 mono remix)
I don't know why, but this is probably one of my favourite Beatles tracks- great beat and tongue-in-cheek lyrics!

Strangely warm, 72.8F, with filtered sunshine.

Crispy is contemplating the stream under the bridge and Holly has been cooling off in said stream :)

No music, Crispy's in question mode.

Busy Sunday in the woods!

Lots of people in the woods today. Warmish (47.7F) with a light breeze; it was sunny earlier but the sun seems to have gone into hiding.

The clocks changed last night, so it will stay lighter later which is nice (although T-Mobile doesn't seem to realised it as my phone still says it's 2:47).

Lovely day for a stroll with my son- he is about to launch a ball for Holly with our new tennis ball slingshot. Warm (51.5F) with some sun and a nice breeze.

No music- chatting with the boy :)

Lovely sunny day in the woods, 43.6F and almost no wind.

Holly and I snuck out for a lunchtime walk so that she won't miss out if the sewer inspection takes too long and there's no gap before the pancake supper.

Friday stress relief!

Absolutely beautiful day in the woods today! 38.7F and sunny with a gentle breeze.

Holly didn't get a proper walk yesterday coz of the sewer problems, so today we've done the long, full loop to give her a good run and to let me relax and shed some of the built-up stress from yesterday :)
