Breezy Monday morning

An early walk today as we're under a high wind warning later. It's already getting quite gusty though it's sunny and 37F.

Caught snooping by the mayor.

Sunday, February 24, 2019


Lots of rain overnight so it's a bit of a sloppy, muddy mess. Foggy and 44F.

Dinner at the mayor's.

Saturday, February 23, 2019


Seasonal with high clouds and a watery sun trying to break through, 39F.

A battle in the woods.

Friday, February 22, 2019


Cool and breezy, 45F.

Trouble back at school.

Thursday, February 21, 2019


Warm and sunny, 47F, most of yesterday's snow is now slush at best.

I started the walk with Jackie (hence no headphones), but it was a little too slushy for her so she did the short loop and then went to finish her steps on the flat areas around the parking lot. Hopefully she'll be waiting for me as I gave her the car keys!

Another early walk before the snow, we're supposed to get 3 or 4" starting at lunchtime.

The lecture takes a turn.

Right on freezing, 32F, and sunny.

Off to a lecture in Baltimore.

Presidents' Day

Cool and gray, 40F.

Found an interesting book: Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. It's about the period just after the civil war, but the war ended because the dead at Gettysburg got up and started eating people! An odd premise, but so far it's quite good.

Sunday, February 17, 2019


Cool and sunny with a light breeze, 36F.

Listening to a playlist of old SKA bands.

Saturday, February 16, 2019


Seasonal and sunny, 42F and windy.

Listening to the score from Lawrence of Arabia (I'm having trouble finding a new book!).

Quite warm but mostly gray, 49F.

Various BBC theme tunes.

Thursday, February 14, 2019


Warm, 42F, and sunny. The snow has gone through a couple of freeze/thaw cycles and so is a bit of a mess now.

Misc classical music.

Snowy Wednesday

Faith and Holly like the snow (that's Holly in the picture, Faith is off running about somewhere). Cool and breezy, 40F, with bright sunshine.

In the mood for some gentle silliness, so listening to some Flanders and Swann.

Tuesday before the snow

An early walk to beat the storm, we're due for snow turning to freezing rain for the rest of the day. Right now it's 27F, grey and windy, the snow is due to start in the next 15 minutes.

Listening to NPR (WNYC).

Monday, February 11, 2019


Cool and gray, snow supposedly coming tomorrow, 36F.

There's a film crew in the parking lot so we had to park at the bottom and we're going around the other way to keep things fresh :)

I left my headphones in the car so it's just me and the girls chatting ;)

Sunday afternoon

A nice afternoon, 35F and sunny with almost no wind.

Listening to an album from my youth coz it was mentioned on the radio... Ian Dury's New Boots and Panties!

Saturday, February 9, 2019


Took Faith around the extended loop for the first time. Cool and seasonal with a stiff breeze, 32F.

Listening to a playlist of various English classical composers.

Friday, February 8, 2019


Warm and sunny, 50F. The trails are very muddy :)

Catching up on a podcast.

Thursday off

A damp and warmish day, 44F, mostly grey and with a light breeze. At least the rain we got last night has washed most of the salt of the sidewalks :)

Listening to PM on R4.

Wednesday early

What a gorgeous morning, sunny and calm and crisp, 34F.

That's Faith in the picture running in. I'm having to get used to a new style of dog walking with this one as I let her spend more time off leash, more on the other blog...

Tuesday, February 5, 2019


Another warm one, 59F work sunshine and a gentle breeze.

Chatting with Crisp about the new semester's classes.

Monday, February 4, 2019


Crazy warm today, it was 59F when I started this walk (though it's down to 55F now).

Although we went to the beach at lunchtime it was so nice I snuck out early for some "executive time" with the girls :)

Awesome doggies

Faith and Holly doing a tandem sit/stay together on the bridge... I am super impressed with them!

Warm and sunny, 47F :)

Listening to a random playlist of Monkees songs.

Saturday, February 2, 2019


It's almost tropical this morning, 24F :) very little wind an some nice sunshine too.

Still walking without distractions so I can keep tabs on Faith. Today is a very good test for her as they're are lots of other dogs here, but she's handling it very well.

Friday, February 1, 2019


Just a quick walk around the short loop before it gets dark to burn off some of that excess energy. Much warmer, 21F :)
