A Blog A Day Keeps Everything Else Away!

Admittedly, I like to post something on this blog once in a while. However, a daily blogger I'm not. Anyway, here's a short status: Today, it's raining in Manassas Virginia but the grass, flowers, and plants are loving it. I just finished checking/responding to my online graduate courses - whew, that's out of the way - at least for today. Last week sucked - spent Tuesday - Thursday back in the hospital and got nothing for it but a big "we don't know". Maybe this week will find some solutions. At least I haven't fallen in the past couple of days.
Father's Day was nice. I heard from everyone. PattiQ, who lives close, was here.
We need to do some visiting this month - family awaits. Pat's Dad seems to be doing OK - I do wish we could have been there with him but traveling isn't advised yet. Maybe soon.
Since I like to be out and about, I'm going stir crazy. Today, I better find someplace to go to, just for that sake of doing it.....big box stores are out (too much walking), but maybe just a little would be fine.
Now, if only I could figure out how to keep those squirrels away from the bird feeders - oh, yeah, my pellet rifle!

It's been quite a while.

Blogging has taken a back seat to a few other things like moving, recovering (back surgery sucked and still does), and just getting things settled in the new house. Add to that - teaching a full load in grad school, and trying to find time to open a can of beer once in a while and you have little time left.
Virginia is hot in early June this year. Yesterday, the temp on the outdoor car thermometer read 100 and I believe it. Maybe we'll have a cool spell soon - I hope so.
Anyway, life is always good when it's still there so complaining is a bit of a waste of energy, isn't it?
Here's to a fun summer for all and hopes for a few more bike rides before the inevitable happens.
