Hello and Welcome! Come on in! It is actually pretty nice out there, though still a little damp. The day will get sunnier but cooler. Anyway, we’ll talk about that later. For now, I can get you a large mug of strong French/Sumatra Roast blend, a cuppa tea, hot cocoa or other beverage (if you are here in the afternoon we can negotiate something else. I know I had at least one request for mulled wine….). And where are we? You may recognize the synthesizer as being in New Hampshire.
It has been cold lately. For weeks it has averaged at least 10 degrees F below average, with some days being 20 F below average. There have been days at a time where it never got above freezing. For the most part it has been sunny, though. The ground is, of course, frozen, but we have much more water than I’ve ever seen because of our super wet earlier autumn. The ice was 5″ thick on my drive from the constant flow of water. I’ve never seen that. Yesterday the rain came. At 11 am it was 35 F, at 1 it was 65 F. A fog rolled in and all of the windows fogged up on the outside. After being outside, walking into the house was like walking into a refrigerator. But after it hit its peak, the temperatures are slowly sliding. For the next week we will be back to being 15 F below average instead of 20 F above.
Work was very busy this week. A few emergencies. I was on phone calls all day Monday, so my Weekly Smile was very rushed… And then everyone had to get everything done yesterday, so yesterday was crazy.
I did a lot of editing over the week. My next book is going to be two fantasy novellas. I also spent some time playing with the cover. It is a just a start, but I think I have something.
There was shopping and doing stuff like that. Other things that took time. Exercise, a doctors appointment, walking the dogs, playing with the dogs, taking care of cats, etc. That is, life continued last week.
That’s about it. I do want to get out and enjoy the warmer than usual weather while it is here. Thanks for visiting and having coffee (or whatever) with me! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. If you have a coffee share I will 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! (Note – it is coming back! A lot of people have rejoined and there are plenty of new faces :) ).
