Hello and Welcome! Come on in. I have a large table in the formal dining room that I almost never use where we can stay socially distanced. I’ll grab you a super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, hot cocoa or other beverage. Yeah, we have to be inside because it is pouring out there! It is a cold rain, but not freezing, luckily! Where are we? Although I haven’t used it in a while, some may recognize the photo at the top as being from NH.
This was an odd week. I had training on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. My work days ended up being 9 AM – 6 PM those days. Might not seem bad to you, but I am typically done with my day at 3:30 and love that free afternoon to get stuff done. I also usually take several short breaks during the day, but there was pretty much just a long lunch break. Yes, I could get stuff done in the morning, but the mornings were packed full. So I felt I got zippo accomplished this week. The class was pretty good, and I did get a lot out of it, so not wasted time. Still…
I am in the final out-loud read through of my book, The Old Mill, so should start formatting this weekend.
I did play my electronic instruments a little, but not much.
I did almost no blogging at all. I did the Weekly Smile and Friday Fictioneers. I did not visit many blogs at all.
There were some dog walks and dog play, but not what they are used to (dogs are ruled by routine).
I did exercise some, though not as much as usual. I was able to get a run in on Friday after work (I run in the cold, but when it is less than 20 F/-7 C and the air feels moist, so you are cold, no matter how you dress, it is not great running weather, which is why I only run in the afternoon during the winter. And it is dark by 5, so… Also still dark until well after 7 AM).
I did a bit of outside of work learning (math and science that I previously talked about), so that was good.
I also made a huge batch of chili, which was great. I usually make vegan chili, but I did put a little (no hormone, no antibiotic, grass feed, etc.) hamburger in it. There is still the typical veggies, of course. It’s good.
Anyway, it was an odd week overall. Not necessarily bad, but not great either.
That’s about it. Despite the rain, I have a lot to do today, some to make up for what I didn’t do during the week!
Thanks for stopping in. If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop by.
