Hello and Welcome! Come on over and sit down! It is a bit frigid out here, but sunny and pleasant. I’ll get a nice steaming mug of super-strong dark roast, a piping cuppa tea or a hot hot cocoa to warm you up as we chat. Cold or not, it is nice to relax out here and stare off into the woods, imagining that we are a million miles from anybody despite that we are in the middle of a village. Oh, and where is that village? Some of you may recognize the photo as being from New Hampshire, though there is little snow on the ground now.
This was another odd week. Monday was a holiday, Martin Luther King Day where we celebrate the great civil rights leader and think about the spirit of the civil rights movement and how far we still have to go with it. I had a dentist appointment on Tuesday (just a checkup and cleaning) and a massage Tuesday evening. There was the inauguration on Wednesday and all that went along with that (I was working, but saw clips and later watched a few videos, like the young lady reading her fantastic poem). The rest of the week was spent playing “Where’s Bernie?” I’ll go with him watching Paul Simonon smashing his bass in that iconic cover photo for London Calling.
What else? Well, I ran several times this week. I shortened my run in November with the shorter day (have to get back before it gets dark!), but I may need to lengthen it again – I am still fresh when I get back, even doing sprints in the middle. I also did my strength exercise, walked, walked the dogs, played with the dogs (I run up and down steep hills in the woods, chase them, have them chase me, play tug of war, throw balls, etc, etc.). I read, though I am in the middle of a math book. i did some on line studies. I played my electronic instruments. And such.
Big thing is that I totally finished editing my book, The Old Mill. I also formatted it, which was surprising – I usually fight with Word for hours, cursing the entire time, but I finished in 10 minutes. I gathered the bits and it looks like everything is ready to go! Here is a post on it and here is the cover:
Well, that is about it. It was a good week overall. I have a ton of stuff to do this weekend, including getting outside of the house – it is sunny!
Thanks for stopping by. If you have a coffee share I’ll try to stop in and say “Hi!”
