Road Trip



January 25, 2015. Up a bit early today to drive to Charlottetown to see the Moncton Miracles on the road against the storm. After a 120-111 win, we drove home happy. Best day in a week. Maybe more. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1BbA5EY More photos here.

Sick Day



Jabuary 23, 2015. I needed friendly cats - I bought this picture at a Christmas market in Berlin - because today was a sick day. Which meant only three meetings, dropping off at the dentist, and a run to Costco. I also forgot to put a card in the camera, had a headache all day (I wonder whether I'm still suffering from being kicked in the head) and am running on 1/2 speed. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1CFetoW

Office



January 24, 2015. Still under the weather, staying in all day. I had enough energy to turn my mind to the office upstairs again (notice the paint samples on the wall). I set up the bicycle on the trainer, set up the Wireless TV to play the Miracles basketball game (which as of the half they are trailing badly), and of course, a new signed José Bautista poster on the wall. Put in half an hour or so on the bike, worked up a sweat, and maybe that will chase the last of the ill health away. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1yeju13

Stanley



January 22, 2014. Moncton Miracles Stanley Robinson lines up a shot in a losinge ffort against Saint John. Good game, way too many missed free throws. As for me, I've had a cold and a sore throat all day. Feeling miserable. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1yUZqrv

Frozen



January 21, 2015. A nice clear day with a deep blue sky, cold and frozen. This is the pond on the road near my office. This time of year we'd normally be hip-deep in snow, so I'm happy we have just a trace, with ice. Relatively quiet day today, spin in the evening, forging ahead one inch at a time.

Chattering



January 20, 2015. I went to Mapleton Park at noon to check up on the ducks - I last saw them before the deep freeze of the last couple weeks and I was worried about them. I'm happy to report that they are thriving. I also encountered this little fellow, who scampered alongside the trail beside me for a while before climbing a tree and chattering at me.

Rainy Days and Mondays



January 19, 2015. Today is 'Blue Monday', so named because it's the most depressing day of the year - dark, dreary, and a good two months from the end of winter. But it wasn't so bad for me - a couple of good meetings, a spin class, and getting some stuff done in between. But I have to get those negative influences out of my life - things like Twitter and Facebook threaten to drag me down into the mire of gossip, innuendo and hate. From Flickr http://ift.tt/15ohjSS
