Summer is over!

Well summer is not really over, but it is starting to wane. It’s not actually cooling off yet, hitting 100+ just about everyday lately. But school started up again, and first run shows should start showing up soon.

I have been slacking on the blog as of late. And I figured it was time to get that some-what “uggh” post about my last surgery off the top of the blog. I do have plans for other blog posts, I just have not gotten down to actually formulating my ideas and getting it down in text. I want to blog about my re-entry into the music world. Also some more blog posts on how Laura and I use technology in our life, both personal and professional and a few other ideas. Speaking of blogs, be sure to check out my Sister’s blog The Zen of Sweeping and also her husbands Flip Flop Vector. They are currently on a year long RV trip all over the US. I envy them, but I also like to keep my feet firmly planted in Texas.

Laura started up the fall semester yet again, much to her dismay, this semester she has the privilege of traveling Rio Grande City twice a week. She is not real happy about that (me neither) but it is her turn in the rotation, so it only comes around once in awhile. And it get a change to stretch my cooking skills, what little I have of them. Today I made Stuffed Bell Peppers, and it turned out fairly well, but I am making some changes on the recipe for next time.

Another upcoming blog topic might be my participation in the design/setup/use of the new Audio/Lighting/Video system that we’ll be putting in our new church building soon. The system we have now was hastily put together by me and our previous worship leader. And amazingly it works fairly well. But this time we are wanting to hire a professional and have them do the design, install and setup. That should provide some good content for the blog and keep me occupied as well.

Until Next Time!

State of the Summer

Taking an idea from my little sister’s blog, I decided to do a “State of the Summer” blog to give an overview of our summer plans. We are glad to have gotten the remodel out of the way and now we can get on some of the other smaller projects we have in mind. Laura will be teaching both Summer I and Summer II, but she only has a “face to face” class during Summer I. She’ll be staying really busy with that along with the little things around the house. I’ve started my walking back up again, I did not intend to take a break, but with all the things going on around the house, I just didn’t have the time to stick to my normal routine of walking everyday, I am glad to have started back up, mainly at the park right now, but I’ll be hitting the treadmill soon as well. It is rather hot outside.

2011 Reading Results

Another year has gone and I really did a number on the reading list this year. I have been slowing down somewhat toward the end of the year as I have been reading more RSS feeds during the evening. I am currently in the middle of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R. R. Martin. They are long books, but really good reads. Fantasy with out an overload of fantasy. And what is even cooler is that HBO will have “The Game of Thrones” series starting this year! I am so looking forward to it and Laura wants to see it as well. So we’ll be subscribing to HBO for several months out of the year just to watch this series.
