Skele-toes Tuesday

Fantastic weather, sunny & 78.2F in the woods, a perfect day to try my new Fila Skele-toes shoes! So far I'm liking them a lot- I'll put a mini review over on the main blog.

Easter Monday

We all get today off (yay)  so, after dropping Crisp at school, I've had a nice quiet day unpacking a couple more boxes in the kitchen with Jake, taking the winter covers off the A/Cs, running to the grocery store, and meandering through the woods with Holly :)

Warm and overcast (64. 2F), but tomorrow's supposed to get to nearly 80!

The weather changed it's mind and today is lovely,  sunny and 75.6F!

I dug out shorts and my summer hiking sneakers and Holly and I have worked up a nice sweat doing the long loop at a brisk pace :)

Heading home after this to play Portal 2 with Crispy on the XBox (it just came out today and we've been waiting for it- thanks Amazon for release-day delivery!).

Another nice day, bit overcast but warmer,  57.0F.

Few too many mountain bikes whizzing about for my liking - they need to get whistles or something so they don't suddenly appear behind you unannounced.

Beautiful day!

Simply gorgeous day in the woods, light breeze, sunny & 55.7F.

The only downside is that the lovely weather means the woods are more crowded than usual, but most of the folks are alright. Ran into one twit who couldn't control his large dog which followed us for about 1/2 a mile with him calling it in vain before I got fed up with it's slightly threatening behavior towards Holly and I had to grab it's collar and lead it back to him.

Cooler and damp, it rained like crazy earlier! 43.8F

No music coz Jackie has my car with my headphones in it (I have the van to take care of a slow leak in one of the tires,  which I didn't get the chance to do today)

Monday, April 4, 2011


Warm but overcast, 58.9F. There's more and more greenery starting to pop up all over the place (just to the right of this picture there are tons of green spikes pushing up through last year's leaves).
