CIBC! Deep Freeze!

Tim A. Cummins @ 3:16 pm  

I’ve been having a lot of problems with my main computer. The graphics card went dead and I replaced that. When I picked the computer up the repair main said there was a virus on it. I knew that because it had highjacked my home screen. I ran a malware program and somehow it crashed the browser. So it’s back at HL Computer trying to get the virus issue squared away.
I’m working with my Vaio now. It’s a pretty old piece of hardware but seems to limp along somehow.

Went to church at CIBC with Kathy.

Had the Lord’s supper. I always think how I would try and explain this to Muslims.

Pastor Phil spoke on resisting temptation.

I’d lost my coffee cup. I found it the following week at church in the bathroom. Oops!

I like the names of the children.

And signs like this in foreign languages. This is Dari.

Met up with Ashley and Miles at church then went to eat Nepali food at Kathmandu grill.


Over this cold weather snap, their pipes froze. That’s a problem with old houses, even when you drip pipes there can be freezing. Especially if it gets down to 9 degrees!

Had a good conversation with my friend Brian Finley from FBC Kerrville, TX. I’m encouraging them to bring a team to work with us in Atlanta.

We’ve had several confirmations of teams coming to work with us recently. Ashley always does such a wonderful job of customer service with these guys!

Enjoyed working with my microscope. Always something new and interesting to learn and see.

I don’t remember ever having weather this cold.

It froze the condensation around my windows.

Ice gauge.

I’ve been reading a lot recently. Finished Smarter Than You Think by Clive Thompson. Excellent! And about half way through Nexus, also a lot of fun. I read from my iPhone. Here’s how I prop it on on my desk. Dinosaur fossil and stone axe.

I took Kathy to Red Lobster. Actually, she paid. She said it was for our anniversary back in December. Did you hear the rumors about Red Lobster closing? They’re not sure about it.

Tuesday evening I took Jesse for Chinese food and then to see the Hobbit–Desolation of Smaug.
Really liked it. Well paced. Tauriel was a great addition to the movie. Evangeline Lily was the best part about the movie imho.

Wednesday morning I went through my calendar to set up our TK marriage enrichment weekends. Always fun to get away with my sweet wife. I put the dates on her Duck Dynasty calendar I bought her for Christmas.

It’s the coldest I’ve ever seen my room. I run my little space heater constantly, but this cold weather is pretty intense. I don’t have central air in my room in the basement.

Sent checks in to the North American Mission Board.

Working on admin duties. I’ll head over to the mission soon.

These mushrooms sprouted right before the hard freeze.

This hawk was waiting for careless animals at my feeders.
