Hello and Welcome! It is still dry, if cold, so let’s sit here outside and enjoy the view out into the woods. Ahhh… relaxing, no? I’ll get you a nice large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, some hot cocoa or other hot beverage – you’ll need it as it is still below freezing, even if nice. Were are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
I’ll start off by talking about last Saturday. I did tell you few things on my last coffee share, but skipped some. First, right before I wrote it, I had a nasty fall. I’m OK, but I landed flat on my back with a “Womp!” like Charlie Brown when he tries to kick the football. I was already soaked to the bone, and this didn’t help… Besides the raging storm, I knew that it was Josie’s last day. I don’t know why I knew,but I did. I did cuddle her and such. She still moved around the house occasionally, but I knew it was the end. She didn’t last the night. Click here for the Tribute to Josie.
So last week I also talked about a storm. Well, we were on the line, so it stayed just above freezing. The snow was wet and mostly melted. But then, when it was all done, the temperature dropped, so the few inches/several centimeters, turned to ice. Yuck. It has been a very cold week, like mid-January instead of early December. Frigid, in fact, with some days not seeing the top side of freezing. And the air was damp, so it felt even colder. The last few days were a little warmer. Today will be just above freezing and rainy, but tomorrow should be nice.
So, cold dog walks, but no runs until yesterday. It had been a week since I had last run, and I could feel it. I did do other exercise, which is good. I finished the latest round of editing on my book The Old Mill and sent it to a couple of people that will go over it with a fine-tooth comb to ensure I caught all of the mistakes.
I also played a lot of music. I posted a quick improvisation on YouTube – I had made a “toy piano” sound that I thought was cool, and… Anyway, so far it is the least popular thing I’ve posted on YouTube in years, as far as number of views… Oh well, if you are curious:
And that was mostly it. I started some nerdy studying, like I talked about a few weeks ago. My opinion is that humans need to be constantly learning new things. That is what it means to be human.
Anyway, got to go. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great week and have a good week ahead. If you have a coffee share, I will try to visit.
Have a wonderful weekend!
