65 degrees this morning, walk 34;01 minutes, 90% humidity
In spite of my concerns about the cold, the walk was enjoyable. I bundled up a little just to be safe. Many people may see 65 degrees as “comfortable”, I see it close to freezing in the Summer!
I didn’t wear a muffler around my face (that isn’t the correct word) The correct word is probably Balaclava, or Neck Gaiter.
Anyway, I didn’t wear one and was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t cough as I normally do when I walk at this temperature without something covering my mouth. Maybe the breathing exercises are doing some good.
It took getting used to doing the breathing exercises while I walk, but it seems to work.
Now I need to incorporate the breathing exercises while I ride my bike.
I still haven’t given up on the project to “ride with the summer” some year (start in Texas and ride towards Canada along with the summer). I will need to start practicing soon on this!
Pace was 6 seconds slower than my goal. That kind of surprised me, I thought in cooler weather I would walk faster.
Sitting on the patio, no sure how much longer I will last due to the 65 degree weather. At first I wasn’t going to even try to sit on the patio due to the cold, but i decided try it. At first it was fine, but as I sit here I am getting cooler.
The moon (kind of a lop-sided moon) is over my left shoulder as I sit on the patio (facing west).
The white flowered Crepe Myrtle is amazing, how it lights up the dark, almost like a tree of lights, while I can’t see the red and pink Crepe Myrtle in the dark. I guess it is some proof that everything has a time when it shines, it may just need a different environment or circumstances.
We finally got our Nest video door bell and lock I was rather surprise at how long the delivery took in today’s world of “same day” delivery. I ordered it around July 1 (right after the Courter Reunion) and it just arrived yesterday, so it literally took a month.
What is strange (and may be even stranger that I ordered it directly from Nest) is that the same items (I think) are available on Amazon not only on two day delivery, but also cheaper.
I ordered from Nest since I have been stung once too ofter from Amazon and inferior products that were supposed to be “name brand or equal” and were just junk. I couldn’t really verify that it was “exactly” the same so I ordered it directly from Nest. In all fairness, the “junk” products were small items, but were still junk, although I also have a Canon printer that is just junk that I got from Amazon. No more Canon of anything and no more printers form Amazon!
Actually, the delay didn’t really bother me, we still need to find someone to install it, I can probably set it up after that. With our “Echo Show”, we can then have some control over answering our door.
That’s it for now, Wednesday, August 1, 2018.
