Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast (this week it is heavy on Italian Roast…), a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is sunny and beautiful outside, but a little chilly and windy. Not as windy as yesterday (sustained winds of over 20 mph/32 kph), but still noticeable. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being on Cape Cod, though it is the summer photo and I may need to switch back to winter mode soon!
It has been warmer than usual up until Thursday. Thursday the temperatures plunged to slightly below normal. The forecast had a cold week ahead, but it has changed so it will be closer to average for this time of year. Hopefully we will get some fall colors to go with the fall temperatures!
Thursday as I was playing with the dogs in the back yard (in New Hampshire) and followed them up the wooded hillside, I noticed that although the leaves were still green, there was a yellow glow of autumn. I went back and grabbed my phone. A couple of comments – it is impossible to see scale in this photo – I could not put my arms around any of those trees and it would take three people for the biggest – they are huge and towering. Also, the hill is much steeper when not seeing it through the super-wide-angle of the phone. Much, much steeper.
I came down to Cape Cod on Thursday (I usually come down Wednesday night, but was too busy). Yesterday was a beautiful day, though I worked all day and did some work on the house after work. Still great.
I want to spend as much time outside today as possible, though I still have a lot of work I need to do on the house.
Anyway, if you didn’t get the hint, that means I have to get up and start moving (OK, I did run 5 miles/ 8 km this morning, down to the beach, including 2 miles on the beach front…). Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend. If you have a coffee share I will try to stop in and chat.
