And if so, I am the king.
Another busy day in my life ahead.
A Long Weekend Away
It was nice to get away for a weekend. It would have been nicer if I didn’t know if the rising tide of work facing me upon my return as well.
As you well know, I did one of my semi-annual drives to Black Mountain, North Carolina for LEAF where upon I met up with the Raleigh Royalty.
We got a bit of rain on Friday afternoon and a smattering as we pulled out on Sunday, but the times in-between were hot, hot, hot. Even with multiple generous slathering of sunblock (SPF 30) I am now a man of color — at least on my face, neck, and arms.
This LEAF had a bit of different energy about it because we never went to watch any music performances mostly because none of us recognized the bands playing. Even without that we spent much time walking around, waiting in line to do the zipline into the lake, and watching the young boys frolic in the water. Had I not broken a tent pole while turning my tent over in an attempt to let the sun dry its bottom it would have been a stellar weekend.
A Long Summer Ahead
If the past week’s weather is an indication of what this summer holds then I am in for a long, hot summer.
You may recall that the ITP Estate is long on heating, short on air conditioning. Additionally, I am relatively cheap and will wait until the last uncomfortable second before I start using my air conditioner. Truth be told, I am more tolerant of heat than cold but there is a point at which I crack. I’m getting very close to that point.
Short On Time
Have a great day friends, all four of you who still read this space (I no longer do analytics, but I have a feeling that blog reading is way down and that my lack of quality posts has contributed to this). I need to start cranking out the code today and find some time to prepare for tonight’s German class.
