Sunday, a day of rest? That’s what I grew up being told and yet, it’s not happened in quite a while. Sunday, like birthdays and other holidays has just become yet another day of the week.
This rain that started sometime last night has finally stopped for a while. The local forecast calls for thunderstorms tonight so it will be a day of office and internet work. Living on Lake Superior, we tend to check the weather several times a day as our weather changes often. I am glad I decided to mow the lawns yesterday.
The elephant in the room is that I missed writing yesterday. I’ll be up front and say, it’s wasn’t a priority given the other things going on. I missed a day and we’re back writing today. I’m not going to attempt to make up for yesterday’s lack of 500 words. I might post a couple of other items however including this.
There were a few flying things around yesterday. An ultra-light was buzzing the boats on the lake close by the property. While mowing yesterday afternoon, I think I saw an Eagle fly by. The lovely and talented lady of the house says that she’s seen one as well. We’ll need to see where the Eagles might be in this area.
I’ve noticed that since we’re in a bit of a remote location, the importance of the internet and connectivity via messaging and video chat tools is an important part of our daily life. Skype, Facetime, Facebook Messenger to name but a few. I had a great chat with one of my many friends in India, last evening, our time. As the time difference is 10 and a half hours ti does make for good opportunities to chat. This also reminds me that I need to do some research that I promised regarding FMCG.
It appears that College football began yesterday and the NFL begins a week from today. As I said previously we’ll have to get use to a different set of games available to us.
Checking various news outlets, Hillary is still free, no one from the State of California or the city of San Francisco has been jailed, and Lois Lerner is still free. From the lack of sensational news reports, the funeral in Houston on Friday was a peaceful event as it should have been, and that’s a good thing.
Tomorrow is a federal holiday so no mail or other intrusions. It appears it will be a light week guest wise, with those who are here, staying for nearly the entire week. That makes things nicer overall for everyone. This will also allow us to address other issues here on the property.
Having this Chromebook, an iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, is a blessing and a curse. (HT: Monk) I am finding out that I’m making more use of cloud type services that are available. I’m by no means having the entire situation handled but we’re working towards that end. Google docs and their other services have become my default go to source.
I’ve noticed that this now five days of writing has become at this beginning, more of a journaling missive that just writing about something specific. While I like this so get my head clear and other thoughts down, I’m certain it will begin to restructure itself.
A couple of final notes on this Sunday of the Labor Day Weekend. If you’re calling me or for that matter any business, hotel, motel, or B&B at 9pm on a Saturday night, looking for a room, you’ve failed Planning Ahead 101. Just Sayin’. Also, is Jerry Lewis still on this weekend? Inquiring minds want to know.
