It’s a fine day

I really do think time speeds up when you are not working. My 3 day weekend is drawing to an end and it feels like it just started. It’s been a really nice weekend though. The weather finally cleared up a bit. Yesterday it was sunny most of the day and this morning was absolutely beautiful. Since lunchtime, the weather has been changing a lot. It’s been shifting from blue skies, hardly no wind and warm weather to grey skies, scattered showers, windy and cool weather. Literally, from one minute to the next it goes from good to bad to good again to bad again. It’s funny because there is this group of people in tour buses that were enjoying the sun and then we the first scattered showers came, they went inside their tour buses. The light rain lasted barely 5 minutes and when the sun came out again, they went outside. Then not 5 more minutes into the sun, the grey clouds came and then they went back into the buses. It didn’t even rain that time. Then the sun came back out and is still currently out, but the people are still in the tour buses….guess they are waiting for the next rain.

Am drinking my second pot of green tea with jasmine right now. I cooked a stir fry for lunch today. Also tried a packet of hot & sour soup mix that I bought at a Chinese food store. Have to admit that the soup wasn’t too great. It tasted like it came from a mix (guess I should have expected that). I have been having a serious craving for hot & sour soup the way the Chinese restaurants in America make it. The hot & sour soup at Chinese restaurants here is like a bowl of roux….which is quite yucky to say the least. The stir fry was great. I put fresh onion, yellow bell pepper, garlic, carrot, green chilies and celery in it….it was very colorful and I seasoned it with a watered down dark soy sauce.

Today is a holiday for a lot of people. In the US, it is the observed Memorial Day and here in the UK it is the Spring bank holiday. I have taken a few moments out of my day today and thought of those who have given all for their country. Am feeling a bit reflective today which I guess is kind of fitting. Wonder what everyone is doing…..anyone had a BBQ?

  4. The kind of laser level you’ll need obviously is determined by the sort of job.
    This is beneficial in surveying plus some artistic work, but most peoplpe won’t make use of this feature.
    So, listed here are the superior ten DIY tools, starting from
    power tools, to garden tools, to make certain DIY always goes right.

  5. A cross trainer enables onne to somehow have a “home based gym” where you could exercise.
    The warm up should go on for only 5 minutes and therefore the next ten minutes will
    probably be high intensity intervals in which you adjust the particular level and speed for
    brief bursts of workout out followed by short periods of
    lower level workouts or rest. If you are searching for that ideal workout device then you ought to choose a fitness bike.

    These benefits, combined with the features incorporated into most
    top quality new or refurbished elliptical machines, choose this fitness machine attracting a large spectrum in the population,
    so its popularity should only increase in the future.
    Some from the newest models even allow you to select famous areas (like the
    Rocky Mountains), as well as the machine will automatically incline to the degree that might simulate a hike in the Rockies.
    It can also help you to increase your burned calories for many hours after
    your exercise.

  7. There are several people that like the Tunturi treadmill that
    is available. Excellent cushioning will assure
    your joints and ligaments feel at ease from wearing and breakage.
    This will likely incorporate digital screens detailing every minute within your training.
