It is hot today and as far as I’m concerned it is officially summer. Whew! Supposed to be hot again tomorrow. Can you say “massive quantities of ice cream”?! I think Keri and I might head on over to the Y in a while for a swim in the pool. I could live in it I bet.
That’s the temp as of right now at 11:24 pm. Supposed to go down one more degree. Or maybe it’s gone up? Up yes. Please, we must be positive now.
Warmer weather expected this weekend… like a cold Monterey night in the 50′s. Now that I can handle.
Liquid warmth awaits in a swig of whiskey. Ta for now.
Ok…it is COLD. According to my weather widget it is 10 degrees outside and not much warmer in here. After getting the recent gas bill we’ve decided not to use the heat. So it’s time to bundle up and drink tons of hot liquids. I prefer a nice hot apple cider with a dash of cinnamon. Not that packaged crap you get in powder form but REAL apple cider produced locally. Lately, Keri and I have been going to the Wintertime Farmer’s Market at AS220 in downtown Providence. Compared to the market in Monterey this one is tiny with a lower case t. It’s better than nothing. We plan to go again this Saturday to pick up more cheese from the Narragansett Creamery stand there as well as seasonal vegetables for soups and some more of this cider.
It’s funny…only a couple months ago it was sweltering here and we couldn’t wait for winter. I’ll take the heat any day over this. Crack open a ‘Gansett and turn the fan on full blast.
I’m dreaming of course. There are about 3 more months of this to go. Ha.
Off that topic and on to new… I’ve discovered a new or almost new service that Amazon.com has. It’s called Createspace.com. One of the cool things you can do is on-demand book publishing. Hmm… check it out here.
I’ve also found a new band to check out named The Bird and the Bee. You can listen to some of their music at their myspace page here.
I’m about 3/4 the way through Stephen King’s The Stand.
Classic King here. Not my usual genre for books but he’s always a fun read. Next up I’ve got the new On The Road: The Scroll to read. I’ve actually had it for a couple months now but haven’t gotten around to reading it.
Anyway, that’s about it for now.
It’s snowed today. A wet snow so about half of it melted and is sure to form ice overnight if it hasn’t already. Surprisingly, it didn’t feel too cold today even tho the temp was 32. Now it’s late evening and we’re all settled in for the night. Fresh baked oatmeal craisin cookies and hot cocoa are in order. More Deadwood episodes to watch.
Tomorrow, depending on the weather and how we feel, we may go to an art opening at Jo’s gallery. I’d like to get down to the Job Lot at some point to pick up heavier sweat clothes for the gym commute. Speaking of, I only ran 2.75 miles today. Too sore. The weekend will be a good rest and then on Monday I plan to try a new routine with 3 one mile run intervals instead of 2 with the other mile chopped up into quarters. Hopefully I can do it and then I’ll be really close to my 4 mile run goal. That’ll go a long way to working off the cookies and cocoa.
