Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you nice large mug of very strong Sumatra roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. Actually, I’m very late with this, so maybe something cool would be better. It is warm out, but not hot. It feels great! We’ll sit on the back patio and look off into the woods. And where are we? By the picture at the top you may know that we are in New Hampshire this weekend.
This was a strange week. It was hot for most of the week, 90+ for 7 or 8 days in a row. Unusual for this part of the world, particularly at the end of June/early July. I did better than I sometimes do in the heat, but still, with no AC the house does get a little warm (I saw the upstairs at 89 once). OK, truthfully, I did better managing the heat than almost any other heat wave. It comes from teleworking and so being able to manipulate the windows and shades.
Also strange was a Wednesday holiday. I am all for celebrating Independence, just think it is odd that so many do with explosives. But then again, there was less fireworks this year than I can remember in a long time. If you have dogs, you know why I was happy there were so few (I think anybody who lights fireworks should be forced to babysit nervous dogs when someone else is reenacting WW III). I worked every other day this week so….
I did go out hiking in the morning on the 4th. It was nice and relatively cool. I went to North Pack Monadnock. The trailhead is exactly 9 miles from my house. Pack Mondnock (Miller State Park) is even closer, but I like North Pack better. Mount Monadnock is bit farther and a great hike, but often crowded.
I also did North Pack this morning. I did a loop around the top to make a longer hike (it’s pretty short). It was great! You can see Vermont behind Mount Monadnock in one direction and the big buildings in Boston in the other direction. Very cool.
We had a sick cat this weekend, which is never fun. I did a lot of editing this week, which also isn’t fun. And it was just plain busy.
I don’t know if I read a single blog post yet this weekend. It’s just been too busy and I hate sitting at the computer when it is nice outside.
Anyway, thinking of that, I gotta go and do some more stuff outside! Thanks for stopping by! It was nice visiting. Talk to you soon. if you do 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 :
