Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong French Roast. Or is it Sumatra? I think, actually, it’s a mix of the two, but it is still good! or a cuppa tea or something else. It has been an almost perfect week weatherwise. OK, yesterday was rainy, and the week started off hot and humid, but most of it was what summer days are supposed to be like. Cool at night (58 F/14 C) and pleasantly warm during the day (85 F/29 C). The house stays perfect in the 60s, getting up into the 70s some days (last weekend it was almost 90 F (30 C) in the house. With the 100% humidity…. Anyway, it is great now! And where is this nice, summer weather occurring? Some of you may know that the picture at the top was taken in New Hampshire.
It was a weird week. I returned to work on Monday, only to have Tuesday off. I spent a lot of time catching up and the rest of the time trying to get my mind back into work mode. Ouch. That is difficult. But I did get quite a bit done.
I didn’t do a whole lot to talk about. I’ll admit that I spent most of the week making a video to promote my upcoming book, The Fireborn. I haven’t played on my musical instruments much lately, so it was great doing the music. I need to take a week of just playing! Maybe two… I did most of the artwork for the video when I was on Cape Cod last week, but did the animation with the artwork this week. And then I put it together and… Well, take a look and tell me!
I did a lot of dog walking this week and some stuff around the house. I went into the woods and, well, actually I spent most of the week playing with the video ;)
It was a weird blogging week. Views were strange. I think a lot of it was people on vacation, but I had more views from 8:30 PM last night to 7 AM today than I had the entire day yesterday up to 8:30 PM! Just oddball things like that. Usually when my views go wacky it means WP is about to make “improvements”.
With The Old Mill being done, I felt at a loss on what to post. Well, almost ;) I did do a Weekly Smile Reminder on Sunday and a new Weekly Smile on Wednesday. I also did a Friday Fictioneer story on Wednesday and a #writephoto story on Thursday (actually a continuation), Late on Friday I put up a very short story, more of a scene than a story.
I spent several hours reading The Declaration of Independence and a lot of words that have been written about this important document. I decided to do a post on it, but it turned into a rant. I do not like to get political on the blog, but felt I have to on occasion.
And then I did two promotion posts. It has been a long time since I have brought up the book Seasons of Imagination. Since 100% of the sales for it happened the first two or three weeks of it being out, I felt it couldn’t hurt. It didn’t. Of course it didn’t help, but that’s beside the point ;) I also put up the promotion video for The Fireborn. or did I say that already ;)
Well, since I spent most of the week of perfect weather working on my studio tan, I feel I need to get out and enjoy the weather! I did take a long walk at 7 this morning, but need to get back out again. I also have to mow my lawn and do other work around the house.
