Happy March 1st! It’s cloudy and a bit rainy. Does that mean March is coming in like a lion?
This morning I was laying in bed while my husband was getting ready for work. I thought the scene looked great. I quickly got my camera and tried to get a shot. Tell me what you think.
One thing I learned is that I need some new lenses that have a lower f-stop so that I can take low light photos and not see noise in the photos. I’ll get one.
Today I walked 2.12 miles indoors.
As the sun was going down this evening the sky lit up with these beautiful colors! Of course I had to get my camera out and take some photos. I think the sky is gorgeous!
I walked 2.02 miles indoors today.
It was really foggy outside this morning. I grabbed my camera and hung myself out the window to get this shot. I really like it! I actually think it’s an amazing shot! What do you think?
I walked 1.12 miles indoors today.
Today is our 3 year anniversary. We went on our first date 13 years ago today and 3 years ago today we got married! It was a gorgeous day today! It got up to 77 degrees and broke a record.
This evening we went out to dinner at Chef Geoff’s. We had our reception there after our wedding. We had a wonderful dinner and a very nice bottle of wine. It was a great day!
I walked 1.01 miles indoors today.
It was raining today so I didn’t get to walk outside. So I took this picture. I saw a video on YouTube about Instagram and it said that if you give your photos a blue tint they are supposed to get more likes. Not sure about that. But I went ahead and give this photo a blue tint and tagged it blue. It got 24 likes so far. I get a range of likes so I’m not sure it’s more or not.
2.05 miles inside today. I went on an actual walk up and down the stairs. I was tired.
Today we went to Linden Vineyards to enjoy a cellar tasting and to see what was new on the tasting menu in the main tasting room. We had a very nice time. While we were in the cellar doing our cellar tasting, it started to snow. We knew it was cold and knew it was going to snow but wasn’t expecting it to start so early. It started to stick right away. We hung around awhile and enjoyed some food and wine. Then we decided we should get going. We drove home in the slushy snow on 66. It was just a little scary. We got home fine though. It was so pretty to watch while we were at the winery. By the time we got home it had pretty much stopped and hadn’t accumulated very much in DC. Maybe an inch.
1.56 miles indoors because of the cold and snow.
The screw extractor tool came yesterday but Valentine’s Day activities got in the way of getting back to the computer. So today I got back to it. I had no problem getting the screw out and taking the computer apart to get to the logic board. I started to remove the old capacitors but had a problem with the soldering iron. I spent most of the day working on this. I could not just heat them up and pull them out. After doing some more research I needed to get a DE-soldering iron. So I ordered it and it will come tomorrow which means at the end of the day when I need to spend time with my husband so this won’t get touched again until probably Saturday afternoon or Sunday. Ugh! I hate not having the tools I need to get these things done. It will get done though.
1.88 miles indoors today. Although the temperature got up to 71 degrees today I didn’t get outside because of some intermittent rain. Later in the afternoon I did get outside and enjoyed the temps and walked half a mile. The temperature broke a record at Dulles Airport when it got up to 76 degrees. Too warm for mid February.
It’s been raining all day today. It was supposed to start out as snow and turn to ice but here in the city we have only seen rain. Just 45 minutes away they had snow and ice. Because of that the husband had the day off. We were pretty lazy today. I ended up walking inside. I walked 2.16 miles today. It was a good walking day.
The sun came out today but it was still very cold. It did warm up a bit to 43 degrees this afternoon but it felt cold. I walked indoors again today. I walked 2.16 miles. here’s a shot of the sun through the window.
It snowed about an inch overnight. My husband didn’t have to go to work today. We had a leisurely breakfast and relaxed most of the day. I did go on a walk in the building and walked 2.14 miles. Then in the evening we went to The Grilled Oyster Company for dinner. It was date night!
Besides doing my exercise walk on the trail today, I also shot a little video showing the winter streams I saw today. Press play to see a short video.
It’s been really cold lately! Today I ran errands and on my way back over the Potomac river I noticed it was frozen. While stopped in traffic I pointed my camera to the river and snapped a picture. Not the best but you can see that it’s pretty frozen.
1.66 miles today.
It snowed last night. We only got about 1 inch but it was enough to get my husband out of school. I walked inside today. I walked 2.03 miles. But instead of taking yet another picture of the hallway, I stuck the camera out the kitchen window to show what it looked like today. I love how the sun is hitting the tops of the trees in the afternoon.
Today I walked 2.42 miles in the neighborhood. I wanted to see how the fall leaves were progressing. Today was the first day I felt like the leaves actually looked like fall leaves. The colors were so vibrant and bright! I think that’s because of the rain we had a few weeks ago. This one street looks so beautiful!
It was really foggy this morning. I decided to walk anyway. But I only walked 2.28 miles. It was a little misty too.
It was chilly this morning but it’s going to be warmer today than it was yesterday. I walked 3.16 miles on the track at AU this morning. When the sun came up enough to light up the other side of the track, this is what I saw. Beautiful!
I got 2.40 miles in before it started to rain this morning. Here you can see my shirt is wet from the rain.
It rained all morning so I couldn’t get out and walk. The sky cleared up this afternoon and I was able to get a shorter walk in today. I walked 1.17 miles. It was really humid and the sun was hot. I just couldn’t go anymore. It is just way too hot for October 9th. I really need those cool fall temperatures to return!
This morning I had an MRI on my right wrist to figure out where some pain is coming from. I had to be there very early this morning. I’ll get the results in about a week I guess. On the way home I saw this sky and just had to take a picture. I think it’s beautiful!
Of course I also walked today. I walked 3.10 miles but it was a little later in the morning. I didn’t take any pictures on the walk though since I had that amazing photo above.
It was cold again this morning but I wore the sweatshirt again and was able to get 3.14 miles on the track. On the way to the track I passed the power plant for the university. There was a pipe putting out all this steam. From the other side of the track it made for a cool photo. Do you agree?
On another note, I’m just sick with the mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas last night. It’s the largest mass shooting in modern American history. Of course Trump is a horrible president and never says what needs to be said to heal the country.
