Hello and welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of a very strong French Roast or a cuppa tea. If you have coffee you may notice the slight flavor. Last week I opened a container of Italian Roast. Only, once I made a pot I discovered it wasn’t Italian Roast, it was Italian Amaretto flavored coffee. Yuck. I have it 1 scoop of the Amaretto to 15 scoops of French Roast and it is still ultra strongly flavored. Besides the flavor of the coffee, you may notice the spicy tinge to the air. More about that later.
Those who read my coffee posts often will know that I am in New Hampshire. Yes, that cool white Moog Voyager in the picture is in my New Hampshire “studio”. Here is a photo I took out of my upstairs kitchen window on Wednesday morning.
I love Cape Cod, but the colors aren’t quite the same as they are in New Hampshire.
Thinking of “The Cape”, I spent a log weekend down there last week. I took a day off of work and so was able to relax more than I’ve been able to my vacation in late August/early September. It was great. I can’t wait to be back down again, even if I have to work.
On my way home I stopped in Milford Massachusetts for lunch and a very long walk on their excellent rail trail. The weather was perfect and the leaves were gorgeous. I took a camera with me on the walk. Pictures are coming, along with some pictures I took Wednesday in New Hampshire.
This was a short work week, short but busy. A lot of the type of things that make this shy introvert uncomfortable: I needed to find the right people to do some jobs so I had to call around, making cold calls to people I don’t know. I know, that is part of the job and I had to do it in the other positions, but I’ve been doing it a lot since i started this new position! And people have been doing the same to me, which is almost as bad because I often don’t know if I really am responsible or, if not me, then who? I love taking on new responsibility, but there are stresses involved ; )
Anyway, at home I have also been busy. There are animals, birthdays to celebrate, work around the house and other such things. There is also the Penny Sale. This is the largest fund raiser for our Lions’ Club. I will go down to start setting up at noon today and will get home at around 11 PM. This year I’ll be one of the MCs. Yes, another good job for a shy introvert ;) There has also been a lot of prep-work, including making beans in a crock pot. Now I’m not a big bean eater, but people like my beans. So the whole house is filled with the aroma of the spices I used as the beans have simmered for the last 24 hours.
Blogging has been weird. i was behind early in the week because of traveling. Late Monday I put up an Autumn themed poem about the cycle of life. It is a rerun from last year. On Tuesday I wrote a real quick poem about about the tides and the passing of time. (Yes, 2 poems this week.) On Wednesday I posted a humorous (I hope!) look at some of the search terms that got people to my blog. For a Throwback Thursday I wrote about my cat, Claudius. He was great! While looking for pictures I was humming a song i wrote for him, which I had to find and include. Later I took a bunch of pictures of Claudius and made a video with the song, putting up a second post for Thursday. On Friday I posted a new creepy story. It is a celebration of the month of haunting.
Anyway, that’s about it. i need to go and get ready to spend the day working. At least it’s for a good cause.
And how about you? How has your week been? I hope it was good! If you do a coffee post I’ll try to catch up most likely on Sunday or Monday, though no promises. If you don’t do a coffee post, perhaps you should consider it ;)
