Dispatches from the Swamp – the Vacation Edition

Now that the long weekend is over my vacation starts in earnest. For some odd reason I have woken up at 11:43 am the last 3 or 4 mornings in a row. I am not sure what that is about. I don’t have an alarm set so not sure why this is happening.

Shaw updated the software on their PVR boxes. Some time last week these folders appeared that contained all of the same episodes. These folders annoyed from the second they showed up. They also did not seem overly functional as once you were in the folder the only way out was to exit the list entirely. The other day I was looking around at the new features when A noticed the ‘set-up’ button and suggested that perhaps the folders could be turned off there. Sure enough! It worked. I was very happy.

Sleeping with Sawyer has been an adventure of late. He likes to be under the duvet at night but if he gets too hot then he pushes his way out like a ‘baby rhino’ as Deb has now dubbed him. We are trying to figure out how to get the temperature in the bedroom as cold as possible. For now, we are trying having the door open and a fan going. That worked really well until this morning around 8:00 am at which point it was too warm so I had to put the a/c on. It will get much better as the fall progresses. One great thing about having the door open again is that I can see the mountains again in the morning. That is as long as it is not cloudy!
