Hello and Welcome! Come on in! Brush the snow off of your shoulders and we’ll get you a nice mug of very strong Sumatra/French Roast blend, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. Brrr. Not as cold as it has been, but the snow makes it feel cold. Yep, a typical mid-January week. Oh. That’s right. It’s March. Anyway, some of you may know that photo at the top of the page as being from New Hampshire.
We had another week where it didn’t get above freezing for most of the week. The high on Thursday was around 20 F/ -7 C. It got down just above 0 F/ -18 C. Very typical mid-January, but March? And it has been like this a lot this winter since the Jet Stream has had an odd kink and so has been pulling the cold arctic air our direction. We had a bit of snow Sunday night into Monday (it was about 10 inches when I first went out, but later it had settled and packed down to a wet, heavy 4 inches.) As I said, we are getting snow again today.
OK, on the other hand, Saturday was quite warm. I spent a lot of time outside. Pretty much the entire day. I went running, did many dog walks, played with the dog, chipped at ice (it is still as hard as concrete since it has been so cold), went shopping (OK, inside), and just hung out in the sun because, well, it’s been cold and the sun felt good!
This week was about getting back to work after a few days off. It was about staying warm ;) It was about getting back into my exercise routine. It was about massage on Wednesday. It was about playing around with my piano. I wrote and posted four stories on the blog this week. Well, that includes the 100 word Friday Fictioneers. One story was based on a painting I made years ago. I manipulated the painting and posted several versions as part of the story. Here is the final:
Pleasant, right? ;)
Anyway, not a lot to talk about. I am going to try to be mellow today, but also have a lot of stuff to do around the house. And, of course, shoveling when the snow ends.
