Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice mug of a very strong Sumatra Roast. I can also get you a cuppa tea (black, green, white, herbal), a mug of hot cocoa or other beverage. It is beginning to warm up nicely and will be relatively warm today and tomorrow. And where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as coming from Cape Cod.
Odd week this week. I didn’t work on Monday (I won’t say why, beyond saying if you read the news you may know – I’ll neither confirm nor deny). I didn’t get a lot done, unfortunately. It rained most of the day, and it began to freeze in the evening. That was fine since it was supposed to get up in to the 50s F on Tuesday. I kept looking at the temperature and weather web site. It showed the warm up starting, yet the temperature stayed at a few degrees below freezing. It didn’t move all night or all day. I worked from home on Tuesday because of the ice. I would put down sand, and an hour later the sand would be frozen over and not providing any traction. At the end we had a torrential downpour followed by a crash in temperatures. Although Wednesday was a little above freezing, the ground was frigid. The good news was that the ice didn’t accumulate too much on the branches. The bad is that the ground was covered in a half an inch of ice. I put sand down and it just made it slicker. I chipped most of the ice off of the driveway – as the day went on, chipping became easier. But the backyard, which is on the north side of the house, is still 100% covered in ice, Unfortunately, that is the way we take the dogs out for a walk…
I came down to Cape Cod Wednesday evening. I am here alone, without even a dog. And it is nice ;) I haven’t done too much. I was able to leave work a little early yesterday and so took a long walk in the woods and went to the beach for a few minutes. Today is different. I already took a long walk on the beach and have a full day planned.
Work was pretty tough this week. A lot happening!
I am supposed to be taking a break from working on The Halley Branch, yet last night I wrote almost 5000 words on it. I know, I am finished with my third draft, but I decided to add a little to fill out the characters some more.
There was more, but that is enough for now. I need to get on with the day! So I am off to do some other stuff out here on the Cape. I’ll be popping on and off the blog and hope to do some coffee share visiting later.
Nice to have the chat! I hope you have a great week! Talk to you later.
The original Coffee Share kind of died out, but it has been revived! Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in! Hopefully we can bring it back to its former glory :)
