New Years Day Open Mic

Open Mic New Year

I hope you all survived New Year’s Eve without too much of a hangover.  I spent it playing the game What’s Your’s Like? with the family after we returned from the movie theater.  I had a few highballs during the evening.  I’ve been fighting a head cold which has been going through the family one or two at a time.

After near 70°F temperatures yesterday and tornadoes in the area the cold front moved in late last night.  It’s now in the mid 20’s and is supposed to drop all day and into the  teens tonight.

How was your New Year’s Eve?

New year clockAngry childrenWell, Christmas is behind us now.  We just have to recover and prepare for New Year’s Eve.  Fortunately New Year’s Eve isn’t as big a deal for me as it once was.  Not sure what we’re doing  for New Year’s Eve yet, but I’ll most likely not have a hangover on New Year’s Day.  I’m not guaranteeing that, but it’s not expected.

Open Mic Saturday

I’ve been busy all week working on a video for a Christmas Party tonight.  It’s basically done.  Now I need to created DVD labels and finish up some other details for the party.  Then tomorrow I have to create and mail Christmas cards.  That always takes a back seat to the Christmas Party videos I do.  One of these years I’ll get them done before I start on the videos. 

Then I get to start Christmas shopping…. early this year!  Nah, I don’t have to buy much and I’ve already started.  Earlier in the year I bought my wife an iPad for her birthday.  Two months later she gave it to me for my birthday.   Now what should I get myself her for Christmas?

Are you ready for Christmas?

We have about 2–3 inches of snow here in St. Louis.  It’s our first real snow of the season.  It’s very windy and cold.  Trixie and Gus seemed to really enjoy running in the snow.  This is Trixie’s first snow (that we know of… since we’ve had her) and she seemed to really enjoy it.

I have a video project I’m working on for a Christmas Party (next weekend) so there won’t be as many posts as usual on the sites.  I’ll still get a few things up every day, but not as much as I normally would.

Today I’m off for lunch with friends assuming the roads are OK.    Have a great day!

I’m going to be cleaning out my gutters today.  It’s not an easy job because I have to get up on the house from the front and then scoot around on my butt because the roof is so steep.  My house is like three stories in the back (basement, 1st  floor and second floor) so I can’t use a ladder back there.  I have to scoot down towards the edge and scoop out the leaves manually.  It’s an ordeal and by the end of the task I’m very sore.  I’m getting too old for this.

   It might be the last day of nice weather here in St. Louis.  The high is supposed to be near 70°F.   It’s supposed to be warm tomorrow too, but scattered thunderstorms are expected.  Then the bottom drops out and it’s turning colder.  Thanksgiving will have a high of 38°F and a low of 19°F .   BRRRRRR… not ready for winter.

Open Mic Friday

Open mic Friday

When getting into the shower this morning I discovered (shockingly) that my water heater is not working.  As a result of the investigation of that problem I discovered that I have a leak in the tank, or several leaks as it’s dripping at a pretty good rate onto the floor, and luckily, right into the nearby floor drain.  So, I’ll be dealing with that for a while today.
