This may be my last blog...

Just a photo from 1am this morning/last night.  I could have taken a similar one at 3am when I woke up... but didn't feel like getting out of bed.

Well... I'm thinking about stopping this blog.  There's only about 6 people that read it anyway (and I can email you daily Bette and Walt if you'd like, in place of doing this daily blog). It's been great to be able to look back through them and see when this happened or that happened, or when I went here or there... but otherwise... well.

I had training this morning and then this afternoon I was able to get several things accomplished at work.

It's been a cold, rainy day.  It's about 52* tonight, and it's supposed to get down to 40*. 

It's 10:20pm, past my bedtime (how often do I say that when I am writing this blog?).

P.S. IF you are reading this and for some reason I should continue, email me or message me and let me know why YOU think so...  Thanks...

2nd Day of training...

The  Judge Wichersham museum at Pioneer Park
Originally situated on the corner of 1st Avenue and Noble Street. It was the first house in Fairbanks built with milled lumber and a white picket fence. The lot was purchased in April, 1904 by Judge James Wickersham for $175. He built the house himself that same spring, hauling the lumber down the street on his back. The house was moved to A-67 in 1967, partially restored by the City of Fairbanks in 1977, and placed on the Historic National Register in April, 1979

So, today was spent in training all day. At lunchtime one of my co-workers (the one from Spain) came home with me for lunch and we had grilled cheese sandwiches.  It was a good lunch.

After the training I went over to work to check emails... then it was 5:30pm by the time I got out there (I got sucked into that black hole of the other end of the hallway).

Tonight I've just been watching some TV and spending time on the computer in addition to listening to streaming music.  I hope I don't go over my quota for data. I need to watch that.  Right now I'm listening to some "John Denver".

Okay... keeping this short...

Training all day

Taken in Denali Park last month...

Yes, today was spent in Cognitive Processing Therapy all day. It's good training. Some people have mixed feelings about it because it is "manualized"... basically that means that everything is scripted, by the book.  No asking "how was YOUR week."  Got to meet someone that has worked with a former co-worker that I had in Germany, that was kind of neat. Always nice to do a little networking when you can go for training.

After work I went and bought a new weed-wacker. I haven't tried it out... in fact, it is still in the back of my car.

Been watching TV this evening in my bedroom... (at the moment that is the only TV that has reception, but next Saturday I will have Dish Network. I hope I will be happy with it.  I'll just have it on my big TV in my living room (now that the TV is functional again).

Tonight is supposed to get cold...  down to the mid-30's. Last night it snowed just south of North Pole.  For awhile this morning it rained pretty good, I was happy that my yard got a free watering. It'll be interesting to get my water bill this month... I've been doing a LOT of watering.

Okay... it's past 10:30pm, therefore past my bedtime, so I had better sign off.

P.S. haven't heard from my friends Walt and Bette lately, hope they are okay!
