Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you large mug of ultra-strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is bright and sunny out there, but don’t let that deceive you. It’s cold. We have been having yo-yo temperatures lately. The good news is that it will be warmer than forecast and actually get above freezing later in the day… Where are we? Some may recognize that photo at the top as being taken in New Hampshire. yes, after three weekends on Cape Cod, I am back in NH!
It was a pretty busy week. I had to get a new laptop at work. Our Lions Club held a “candidates night” for candidates to local office in our town hall – I helped organize and sent the invitations. I had massage. I played with puppies, walked puppies, played musical instruments, walked by myself, ran, exercised, read, wrote and did a little editing (after 4 months away). I also made another batch of chili from scratch, including soaking the beans. It will be ready at lunch!
Oh, I also got a tick :( This is the second tick I got this winter. They love me. I have tried to be careful, but…
I had a bit of bad news yesterday, but since I didn’t share the good side, I won’t the bad… I had hinted about the last few weeks, but didn’t want to “count my chickens before they hatched” and was right not to – it all fell apart on the very last day. Oh well, life goes on. And I did some very needed work.
Oh, yes, and work. Besides the new laptop, it was busy. A few things did finally come through there (yeah!) and I made a few steps in the right direction on some other projects. And, of course, I got calls from people about things that aren’t mine because I’ve become known as a bit of a “Subject Matter Expert” even on subjects that I’m, well, not the expert, or at least isn’t really part of my job… lol
Anyway, cold or not, I will spend a lot of time outside today! I also have a ton of chores to do, since this is my first weekend in NH in a month.
So I got to run (maybe not literally today, except when playing with the dogs). Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop by, but make no promises – I’ve missed quite a few the last several weeks…
