Cabin Fever = Puny Posting

My posting this month has been a little anemic.  I really haven't been doing much worth writing about.  Part of it is the weather.  We had some brutal cold last week.  I've said I like the cold and I do but sub-zero temps are just dangerous and I like to think I'm not foolish.  The weather has really been cranking up the cabin fever.  CSI just isn't a good substitution for a bike ride or a hike.

The temperature went back up this weekend so I did finally get out a bit.  The Wife and I had lunch at King Kongs.  This is a local fast food place that serves some good food.  The smallest burger is 1/2 lb.  I had a Double Kong w/Cheese (1 lb).  After all that meat, I couldn't finish my fries.  That was okay as I wasn't very fond of the fries.

After lunch we went to a Hockey game and watched one of the Wife's cousin play a couple games.  They won both games.  I took the opportunity, at the Wife's suggestion, to practice my action photography.  My hat goes off to sports photographers.  Taking action shots is difficult and none of my shots were very satisfying.

On Sunday we went to Sioux City to have brunch with one of the brother-in-laws (TE).  We had some good food and a good time in general.  We visited the Wife's Niece's new digs - nice place, a perfect starter home.

The rest of the week is supposed to be a lot warmer so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get a bike ride and a good long walk in before the cold returns next weekend.

Tomorrow will be a day in front of the tube watching history.  I'm all ready - my pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie is in the freezer ready for consumption.


  1. I'm the terrible poster!

  2. I've been keeping a 19 post/month average but January will not keep up.

    You're doing fine.
