Hello and Welcome! Pull up a chair here and enjoy the view of the hillside. It is all green and beautiful. Yes, not all green – there are plenty of flowers! It is a gorgeous morning after a very wet week. So let’s sit here, relax, and just enjoy the moment. Ah…. Oh, where are we? Some of you may be able to guess by the photo at the top that we are in New Hampshire this morning.
First, You might not have missed me, but I did not post a coffee share last week. I took a week off of work and pretty much dropped out of blog-land over the week. I spent the week on Cape Cod (surprise, surprise ;) ). It was great! I took long walks on the beach, kayaked, swam, walked in the woods, relaxed, had fires in the back yard (OK, in the firepit in the back yard) did work around the house, hired someone to paint the house and someone else came by to look at the barn roof, bought a refrigerator, walked and played with dogs and, well, it was summer vacation!
This week was return to reality ;)
Work was tough. It rained a lot so I wasn’t out as much as I wanted. Sigh. But it was a four day week!
It is the Fourth of July, a big celebration here in the US. Well, typically, but this year will be toned down quite a bit because of Covid-19. Still, sometimes a quiet day is good.
I posted a piece of music from my past, the first movement of my Piano Sonata in g minor. The response has been great. I am thinking about putting out a (download only) CD of some of my piano music from my classical composition days.
Take a listen (yes, it was composed when I was studying the music of the early 19th century in general and Beethoven in particular):
Anyway, it is a beautiful day and the outdoors are calling. No the outdoors are screaming for me to get my lazy, computer tied butt out there! So I am going out to take a long walk. Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee post I will try to visit, but I make no promises – Since I sit in front of a computer all day for work, I sometimes hate being in front of a computer when I am not at work!
