Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of very strong Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea, or other beverage. It’s an odd day. Cool but not cold. It started sunny and felt great, but it is now cloudy and feels cooler, even though the temperature has gone up a degree or two. Where are we? Some of you may recognize that photo as belonging on Cape Cod.
I guess the place to start talking about the week is saying that I was sick. I don’t get sick often. It started with a scratch throat on Monday evening. Tuesday it was worse, and worsened even more during the day. I couldn’t get comfortable that night and slept like $#!&. Wednesday I felt pretty awful. I wasn’t sure if it was from being sick or from not sleeping well since Friday. Most likely a bit of both. Again, it worsened as the day progressed and so I decided not to do the three hour drive down here, to Cape Cod. Good news is I slept OK Wednesday night and so felt better Thursday. I did drive down here Thursday evening. Being in bed without various animals keeping me up, I slept even better Thursday night and felt even better Friday. By Friday evening my throat was a little scratchy again, but I slept pretty good, even though dogs did join me (no cat keeping me up, though). Today I feel much better, though my throat is still not 100%.
Yes, I did work while I was sick. It is a good/bad thing about telecommuting. My days were jam packed with meetings that I was leading, so I couldn’t afford to be out. So busy, but we got through.
Yesterday afternoon I took a long walk in the woods. I saw quite a few osprey, as many as I’ve seen on walk of that length. They were very active! I got a few shots, though it was terrible weather for photography. But it was great seeing them! And I took a long walk on the beach this morning. i saw a couple of deer as I pulled into the parking area.
Hey, the sun just came out again! It feels really nice when the sun is out. I think it will be like that off an on toady. A bit of sun, a bit of clouds. Maybe a little windy for kayaking, but we’ll see. Anyway you look at it, though, I want to be outside as much as possible! And so do the dogs.
With that, I’m dropping off. Thanks for stopping by for a visit! If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by.
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 :)
