Quick, come in out of the rain! Here’s a nice steaming mug of strong French Roast, though you can have a cuppa tea if you’d rather. Yuck, it’s nasty out there! It has been wet and cool all week, not the typical crystal blue sky of early/mid Autumn. Oh well, there is a severe drought and we need the rain. Where are we? Yes, I forgot to mention, we are on Cape Cod, though I think the wet cool weather extends to “home” in New Hampshire. I know the severe drought does!
It’s been an odd week over all. Work was busy, but it has been mostly administrative types of things. Today is the first day of the New Year. The New Fiscal year, that is. A lot of people (managers) are looking back over the last year for lessons learned, there is a new much smaller budget, etc. Things are different and some of the things effect my group and my team, so busy looking at that. Plus, of course, the normal day to day business. Anyway, it’s all good, just busy in a different way.
Most of the week was the same as always, though a bit on the damp side. There is playing with dogs, exercising, writing, reading, playing music (i.e., playing instruments), blogging and other such stuff. A few things different, of course, was the trip into Boston last Saturday. I wrote a post about seeing most of the Western European Foreign Ministers stop off at the restaurant that I was sitting in. The first car had the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, a local man (in Boston). Besides that post, I also did a throwback post about another run in with Secret Service and John Kerry.
Which, of course, brings us to blogging. I did a lot of blogging this week, but not as much as last. And as the past few weeks have gone by, I did almost no reading on Monday and Tuesday – just too busy! Besides the posts mentioned above, I did my Weekly Smile reminder on Sunday and a new Smile on Wednesday. Check out this week’s Smile! I posted a poem on Tuesday and a 100 word story for Friday Fictioneers on Wednesday. At the end of the week I posted a short story. In some ways the story was a risky one. If you started it and didn’t reach the end, please finish it! You may be surprised! The story is very short, but it begins in a very dark place….
My laptop down here on Cape Cod has been acting up. Every time I’ve gone onto Word Press this morning it has crashed. I’m now doing a virus scan as I write this in word. I wrote the first two paragraphs over two hours ago! I hope I get this posted without a hitch. It’s fu… sorry, freaking frustrating!
That’s about it for this week. I’m sitting here, listening to the rain on the window, fighting my computer and reading.
That’s it for me this week! How was your week? I hope it was good! If you do a coffee post I’ll try to catch up, If you don’t do a coffee post, perhaps you should consider it ;) Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you soon!
