It's been another busy week. Well, Monday was quiet at work and Tuesday I started on phase 2 of the big client project, but Wed morning I logged on to work and my VP messaged me before I finished my everyday first task of checking on the overnig... Read more
Thursday Thanks

I am thankful my friend found a job, even if it is out west of Rockford and he is moving to Rockford. I am thankful he is only moving as far as Rockford and not out of state. I am thankful for the advice he gives me. I am thankfu... Read more
Wed and finally awake

Last week was crazy and I was so tired Sun, Mon, Tue that I didn't have time to write before I logged on to work - well, not Sun. Sun I went out to Rockford to see the house my friend has a bid on. Mon I had to be logged on by 6, but then staye... Read more
End of a long work-week

I had this all written yesterday and forgot to post it: "It's been a very busy week at work as we get ready for a huge software release for a major client. Release happens Saturday afternoon on into the evening and sometime the next morning - ... Read more

I think I am really glad I got the solar on the roof - I like having $16-$32 electric bills in the summer with the A/C running. $16 is the minimum bill when I produce more than I use. I think the first thing I am going to use the money from... Read more

It's quite nice outside right now - mid 60s and the sun is shining. Forecast says plenty of sunshine, high near 85. Much more bearable than 95. This is promising to be a VERY busy week at work. The project is going live on Saturday and ther... Read more

I am very grateful the storms last night went mostly around us. We didn't lose power or get any hail. It was windy and rainy, but very little of the thunder and lightning. Today is supposed to be a little bit cooler and definitely tonight cooler... Read more

It was a lovely, but hot day yesterday. I did go in the pool for a while, then almost froze getting out of my wet suit in the air conditioning. Last night it clouded up and rained lightly just before bedtime. This morning, I ran a couple last mi... Read more
Sunday and still sunny

Today I have a meeting with part of my book club - since it's only a few of us, we are meeting at one of their houses. They also have a pool and since it's supposed to get up into the 90s today, a few of us might go swimming. I found the suit I ... Read more

The closing yesterday happened. After work I swung by the lawyer's office and picked up the check and drove straight to the credit union and deposited it. Then I picked up some middle-eastern carry-out and brought it home. I got out the good chi... Read more
TGIF August 7th edition

Finally, today we close on selling my old house. It will be enough to pay off the solar since that was a 12 months no interest loan and refresh my savings quite a bit. It will definitely stop the money-drain as I will no longer be paying for 2 o... Read more
Thursday got away from me

I forgot to post a blog yesterday and almost again today. It got warmer today and I shut the house up and let the air run, but now it is cooling off again and I think I will open it up for the night. There's a little breeze. Went over to my... Read more
What does Tuesday do?
Tuesday, August 04, 2020      10 comments

I was trying to think if there are any songs that mention Tuesday and came up blank except for one line of The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love" and I certainly don't want that. Still nice and cool this morning with a partly cloudy high of 74 predicte... Read more
Rainy days and Mondays

Is it really August? High today of 72 with rain later, so it certainly doesn't feel like it. Right now it's just gloomy and chilly - only 63. Think I will open the house back up again. I took a load of boxes of stuff to the charity shop yes... Read more
Welcome to August - Oops lost yesterday's blog
Sunday, August 02, 2020      10 comments

I did write a blog yesterday titled Welcome to August, but I evidently either accidentally deleted that tab or just plain forgot to hit the Post button. CRS strikes again. For those of you unfamiliar with that acronym, it stands for Can't Rememb... Read more
