Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice strong Dark Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. We need to have it outside, because it is so gorgeous out! But I don’t have anyplace to sit yet. Maybe we can put it in travel mugs and walk to one of the two nearby landings and sit on a bench and watch the water. And where are we? Some of you may recognize the new-ish photo as being at the new-ish place on Cape Cod.
So the big news this week is that I consider myself moved from the cottage to the house. Now one thing to be aware of – some day will will live here full time, but for now my permanent residence is still in New Hampshire. If you read this blog, or at least the coffee share, you know that I do spend a lot of time on Cape Cod, even during the winter, and with a real house here, I may spend more time, just not full time for a while yet. Five years? Maybe…
Back to the story – I worked out of the cottage on Thursday. After work I turned off the modem, packed it up and turned it on here. It took 10 or 15 minutes, but it came up! My Internet connection is now at the new place.
I also mowed the lawn for the first time. Although much of it is fine, there were places that grass and/or weeds were up to my waist! It is funny, after I mowed I had several neighbors stop and say “hi”. I guess they knew that I was really here when I tackled the jungle while before I might have just been visiting….
I still had dinner at the old place and still need to clean. I’ll go there later and do yard work. I did see some turkey the other evening.
And Swan Pond will be missed! It is only three miles away, so I guess I can go over to watch the sunset. And besides, the Bass River is close – My back yard almost reaches it (Can’t see because of the trees) and there are two landings within a five minute walk.
Anyway, it is going to be a very busy day! UI have a ton of work to do and I hope to get out for some non-work time, like a walk on the beach or in the woods. Maybe a paddle.
Yeah, a lot of other things, like a busy week at work and a great walk in the New Hampshire woods (see my Weekly Smile), but the new house is all important ;)
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 :)
