If We Were Having Coffee on the First of June, 2019

Coffee in NH with Moog

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in and we’ll get a nice beverage, such as a mug of a very strong dark roast mix, a cuppa tea or perhaps something cool.  Let’s go back out onto the patio.  we can forget that we are in the middle of the village and watch the birds in the woods.  It is afternoon and beautiful.  And were are we?  You may know that synthesizer as being in New Hampshire. (The photo below is from last year)

My back yard, looking across the driveway.

It was an odd week weather-wise.  It started of warm and gorgeous, but Tuesday turned wet and cold, more like mid-March than late May.  Wednesday started off awful as well, but improved late in the afternoon.  And it went uphill from there :)  So it looks to be a gorgeous weekend again.

It was a short workweek this week, but I’m glad – I don’t know if I would have survived a long one ;)  OK, not that bad, but it was busy.  Thursday was pretty bad and kept me on my toes.  Friday continued to be busy.  Oh well, it is the weekend.

Besides that, I can’t say a lot of what I did this week.  I came back from Cape Cod on Sunday, spent a relaxing day in new Hampshire on Monday.  And then there was work, exercise, dogs, cats, massage on Wednesday (thanks Dottie) and other such stuff.

I have been up and about today, but since it is a rare weekend up in New Hampshire, I am busy.  I have to run out and do a bunch of chores and shopping.  Tomorrow will be the same.  I will get out and do fun stuff as well, but I doubt if I will get a chance to hike or anything.

So, that being said, I need to be headed out.  Thanks for stopping by!  If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by, but it might not be until late Sunday or Monday!  Have a great weekend :)

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.

    Ah yes, the wonders of those precious short weeks. We should have many more. You have a lot on your plate, but your track record speaks well of your chances for getting it all done. I’m catching up after a not as short week and am looking forward to reviewing your posts that I’ve kept queued ready for when I have time, so will see you (via your words) very soon hopeful. Later then.

      The day to day of a short week can keep me busy, but last week it was a few outages… Never fun. But I’m still looking forward to the next short week ;) I hope you are having a great week.

      Thanks, Sonya. Right now it is even greener than that photo shows. I’m not sure the type of day lillies – I have a bit of a brown thumb, so someone else did the gardening.

      Shoving five days of work into four days was part of it, but also had a few issues that affected a lot of people, so there was scrambling, though mostly slow and methodical scrambling, to get things fixed.

      Thanks for joining me for coffee.

    Sounds like my week. I’m not sure where it went but I remember a very long doctor visit and strange weather and taking pictures and waiting for the first of the month for money to arrive and wondering if the food in the fridge would make it to the end of the month (it did). And the Sox are not playing well. Bummer. But it’ a long season (yeah, that’s what we always say.

      I think everyone had a long, rough week, despite a lot of us having a short work week with Monday as a holiday. Of course us on the East Coast had that awful weather, which always makes things worse. I did read one of your posts about the doctors visit, but I think you had a follow up post that I didn’t have time to look at – I’ll try to make there later today.

    I’ve never been to NH but it looks so pretty. Thank you for sharing coffee, I had iced coffee as it is warm out and in the afternoon now. A little ice tea or coffee is what I drink in the afternoons. I bet your outdoor hikes are beautiful! :D -Diana

    That’s a lovely garden you have in NH! It’s such a pretty state, though I’ve only been there once, that I remember. My grandfather lived there when I was maybe 10 or 12. We went once to visit and I remember being in awe that his backyard consisted of a mountain going (to me) straight up behind the house! And there was a ravine just down the road with tumbling water rushing over rocks and Dad and I and maybe the rest of the family climbed way back up in there. Was soooo wonderful, I’ve never forgotten it, though I couldn’t tell you where it was. We climbed a mountain as a family too, there were wild blueberries up there, and the top of the mountain was pretty much all rock. Is there a Green Mountain? I don’t know why that feels familiar. Or maybe White Mountain. Hmmmm….

      NH is a beautiful state, and very mountainous. The most popular mountain for hiking is Monadnock. The Green Mountains (range) is Vermont while The White Mountains is a range in Northern NH. There might be just a plain “Green Mountain”, but I don’t know where. I’m in a village, but my back yard is almost vertical – not quite a mountain, but it is like having a mountain growing out of my back yard…

          The White Mountains are the “big ones” – all of NH’s biggest mountains are there, including Mt. Washington, which is huge. I used to hike up there a lot. the last time I was there was two and half years ago and did a 10 mile hike on Mt. Lafayette. It’s gorgeous.
