Weekly Ephemera #36

  • 2022 Christmas Tree (Lights only for now).
     On Tuesday I bought an early Christmas present for myself.  I replaced my aging Lenovo tablet with a new Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite.  My old tablet went a lot of places with me including all my Appalachian Trail attempts and our 2022 Fall Travels.  All of my AT posts were written, and photographs edited, on that tablet.  Unfortunately I started running out of memory and kept having to delete things on our travels.  So, out with the 16 GBytes of memory, in with the 64 GBytes.  I'm sure my new tablet will serve me well on our travels and will be my book while at home (the tablet is 8.7 inches about the same size as a large paperback book and the same size as my old tablet.)

    I ended up getting a good deal too ... 40% off.  I ended up ordering it online from Samsung and picking it up at Best Buy an hour later.
  • On Thursday we had Thanksgiving lunch at Mom's place and stopped the Wife's Brother's house to say hi and give travel gifts to the kiddos.  Lots of good food was consumed.
  • I usually don't decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving but this year felt a bit different.  On Monday I put up the Christmas laser lights, garlands, and wreaths outside.

    On Tuesday I put the balls in the oak tree (Pictures will come sometime this week).  Over the next few days only four balls were blown out of the tree which I am pleasantly surprised.  One year more than ten blew out the night I put them up.

    On Sunday I put up the Christmas tree and wrapped it in lights.  The Wife will be decorating it later.

    The Holiday Season has begun!
  • I walked twice this week for a total of 17.7 miles (28.48 km).  It felt good to do more than one walk this week.  I was wondering if I would ever manage more than one walk in a week.
  • After Thanksgiving and decorating I decided to take a short break.  We resubscribed to Netflix and I binged a few things.  Because of this my next Travel post will be delayed even more.  Not sure when I will restart but it won't be Monday like I said in my last post (sorry).  I will have to get started because I want to finish by the end of the year and my schedule is a bit full, fluid, and somewhat unpredictable.
