Exercise: Another walk and this one about 3 miles and will probably be my walk this week. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 3.16mi, time: 01:01:08, pace: 19:21min/mi, speed: 3.10mi/h.

Well …… : This morning it was about 50° with just a little wind and I was thinking that was chilly. I am going on over to NM soon for my Volunteer job. Many of the mornings will be about 20° and man I am going to be fussy over these cold mornings so get ready to hear me wimp! It will be fine but I will fuss at myself for a couple of months but I will settle in soon enough. I am ready to do something different, I have enjoyed my rest this winter but I am completely bored now. I will be more than ready for this boredom after 7 or 8 months of volunteering this year, but for now I am ready for something to do.

Rain: I have seen rains in the desert that lasted a long time but I can’t remember the last time I seen it rain as long as it it this time. It started in yesterday and rain for a good 24 hours. Today is a bit cloudy but not near as dark as it was all day yesterday and I am even seeing a bit of sun peeking out now and then this morning :) The weatherman says it will last till 5pm today but maybe the scattered rain will be scattered rain elsewhere :?:

Exercise: A little walk today. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.36mi, time: 44:56, pace: 19:04min/mi, speed: 3.15mi/h.

Travel: I’m starting to think about traveling …… getting bored 😟 So …. maybe I’ll go to my volunteer job for the summer, early. It will put me in colder weather than I like but I’m a bit bored of doing nothing. If I go, I’m sure I’ll see some other weather that I don’t like too ….. such as snow and ice :( So if I go fellow reads, you going to have to listen to me fuss about the weather for a month or two :) and as usual I’ll invoke my old dude privilege to fuss about it!

Exercise: Walk …. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.43mi, time: 44:40, pace: 18:22min/mi, speed: 3.27mi/h.

Weather: It is 10° cooler and windy today, still pretty nice considering what everybody else across the US has going on. I keep checking the weather where my Volunteer job is this coming summer but man, it is sure too cold for me there. If you wasn’t I’ll hit the road.

Desktop: I decided to update the desktop today and I at least got the Windows updates done, over 1.5 gig of data. Still got one windows update that would not update, error :( Updated Firefox, Thunderbird email, Adobe Camera Raw and Evernote.

FCC : The FCC is to rule on net neutrality Thursday, hopefully with the million of letters they got telling them to not side with Verizon and friends will show in their ruling. The bet is that it will, we’ll see!
