Another lovely day, a little more seasonal, 51F, with abundant low sunshine.

I have the afternoon off as one of the rector candidates is being given a tour and it all has to be very secret.

So, a nice walk with my daughter who drove all the way here and is now registered for 2 classes next semester at WCC :)

Another nice walk with Crisp; can you believe it's almost the end of November and we're out in T-shirts as it's 58F?

Tuesday, November 28, 2017


Finished with ladders for the day :) so a nice walk with monkey.

Warm for the time of year, 50F, but overcast.

Monday, November 27, 2017


It's amazing what a few minutes will do- started 15 minutes later than usual and it's almost dark! Cool with a light breeze, 48F.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A very nice day today, brisk and cold (31F)  this morning and warmed up to 40F now with lots of sunshine.

Walking with Crisp :)

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


A little warm for the day before Thanksgiving, 50F and windy but the train has stopped at least.

I listened to Arlo Guthrie's 50th anniversary version of Alice's Restaurant to put myself in the mood, but now we're back with Catch 22 and Snowden's funeral.

Another seasonal day, 54F and not as windy.

Milo bombs his friends.

Monday, November 20, 2017


Cool and seasonal with the sun going down, 46F.

I had to rethink the early morning walks when I realized that the sun was not rising until 6:50, and is only getting later every day until the solstice (Dec. 21). Oh well, at least on days off and weekends we can walk in the sun :)

Sunday afternoon

Very blustery today, not terribly cold, 48F,  but the wind is pretty chilly.

No book or music, I'm just enjoying the wind rustling all the dead leaves :)

Saturday, November 18, 2017


It was quite nice this morning, but it's just started a cold rain, 49F.

Early Friday

Another lovely sunrise, 39F clear and a bit breezy.

It was pissing down this morning so we waited to come to the woods 'til this afternoon. Cooler and blustery now, 53F, but dry :)

Wednesday (and Crispy's birthday)

A nice day off walk after taking Holly for her Rabies shot. Cool and breezy, 46F, with occasional beams of sunlight.

I can't believe that our amazing daughter is 18 today (of course she decided to stay warm and snug at home today)!

Tuesday morning

A bit colder this morning, 35F and there was frost on the car windows :)

BBC World Service again.

Monday, November 13, 2017


Another early morning walk when it's brisk and mostly cloudy as the sun comes up, 39F.

Got pulled over by the cops on the way here for a broken taillight, luckily it's a fixable summons so once it's fixed I just have to get any cop to sign off on it and send the summons in.

A tad warmer, 46F, and nice and sunny.

Skype call with mum and dad to fill them in on our lives and hear about theirs :)

Saturday, November 11, 2017


Much colder overnight, the wind-chill at 6am was 14F! It's warmed up a bit now, 36F and lots of nice low sunshine and a light breeze.

No book today as Crisp is with me :)

Friday, November 10, 2017


Cold and windy, 35F, it finally feels like fall :)

The chaplain experiences deja vu (and various other vu's too).

Thursday, November 9, 2017


Another sunrise walk. Much more seasonal this morning, 36F and the sun is just coming up.

A nice daytime walk with Crisp as I'm off today :)

Cool and grey, 48F.

Tuesday, November 7, 2017


Sunrise walk, day 2.

Colder, 40F, but bright as the sun is just coming up.

Early Monday

Now the clocks have changed and it's pretty dark by the time I get off work I thought I would try a few early morning walks instead to see how they suit Holly and me.

Warm and sticky, 61F, with occasional light drizzle.

Col. Carthcart.

Sunday, November 5, 2017


Cool and drizzly, 59F.

Crisp's job trial did not pan out, it turns out the job was not exactly as it been described and was pretty much all upselling people on expensive picture framing with no actual hands-on making frames at all. She would have hated it very quickly. Oh well, she has another couple of interviews under her belt and we'll keep looking :)

Saturday, November 4, 2017


A bit more seasonal today, 55F with a light breeze. Lots of families out in the woods this afternoon!

No book as the Bluetooth on my phone send to have died :(

Friday, November 3, 2017


Warmer again, 71F, and sticky, this is crazy for the beginning of November!

Yossarian worries about dying.

Thursday, November 2, 2017


Warm again, 70F, with a light breeze and low sun.

Crisp's job interview went well, she goes in for a couple of days Sunday and Monday as a trial, and if it goes well she'll work three days a week- it's for a local art store in their framing department.


Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Wednesday off

A cool one today, 52F with occasional drizzle.

Crisp has joined me (she had a job interview this morning and goes back for a second one tomorrow- fingers crossed!).
