Drove from warm weather to cold weather after a month camping in Florida. Sitting in the truck camper watching Olympics. Home tomorrow to get taxes together, arrange annual withdrawal (depending), then decide where to next.

Pulled my dual 24 inch HD monitors off of the wall (the ones in my home office that were connected to the megacorp laptop until a couple of weeks ago). Bought a graphics adapter on eBay so I can do extended desktop from my personal machine.

After dinner took a steam bath (I put in a Mr Steam a few years ago, but rarely used it...I plan to change that)

Did a 12 mile conditioning hike wearing half-filled backpacks, as we continue to build up endurance for some 'real' upcoming backpack trips, naps, dinner at home, then to a piano concerto at the university up the road.

I love early retirement! Energy AND money . . . doesn't get much better than that.

Made a quad batch of this hot sauce recipe: Salsa De Chiles De Arbol: Red Hot! Recipe - Mexican.Food.com - 297752

I did it pretty much per the recipe, except I roasted the chiles before blending and added one habanero pepper that had been sitting on the shelf in the fridge for a while. The habanero had kinda dehydrated over time, so I rehydrated it (and cooked it) by putting it in some boiling water before using.

This made one pint and a couple of extra tablespoons. It is hotter than hot. My lips are still burning. This pint will probably last a while.

Oh, BTW: I didn't wear no stinkin' gloves, and I left the seeds in. We'll see what happens handling the contacts later.

Youngest kitty woke me at 6:30am for food.
It rained all morning. Cycled to market in afternoon for groceries and for lunch out.

Spent rest of afternoon napping with kitties on top of me. They are like little heaters that run on cat food.

Sounds like my day.

After attending a number of social events for the past 2 days, I decided to have a lazy day at home with DW and the cats.

Cold & light snow yesterday. Played with the computer & camera, watched a photography video, TV, threw out some old books, not much else.

Hope this winter is over soon.

Going stir crazy with the winter weather, so decided to put staring out the window to good use.

GBBC | Great Backyard Bird Count

Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.

Starting to plan dinner. I am tired maybe a nap?

Yes I have. DW and her friends are on their way to az. I had to come out to prep for their stay. Too bad I have to leave to make room for them

Ha! For a second, I though you were quoting "A Day In The Life"!

Went to the gym with DW.

Deposited the check from a cashed-out small IRA from my last job (rolled over from 401k). Supplementing the pension this will last about 9 months. All part of the plan to put off SS a couple/three more years.

Got the title/lien release in the mail for the Honda Accord we bought last November and made two payments on. That last payment was a bit largish.

Walked around the block (a little more than 1/2 mile) for the first time since I fell down the stairs a couple of weeks ago. If it wasn't cold, I would have done it a few days earlier. I haven't gone down the stairs with only socks on since the fall and I am not planning on trying that again!

Transerred my $4/mo HSA to a free one (elfcu). They needed a form filled out (PDF) and implied that I should email it (with ssn in the clear), but I faxed a jpg of the form (faxzero).

Other than that, I'm just staring out the window watching snow fall, which we rarely get to do here.
