Hello and Welcome! I would have you take a seat here at the picnic table, only you might freeze to death before I can get you your beverage, so come on in and we’ll stay socially distanced. It is sunny, and no longer windy (yesterday was awful!!!) and is a balmy 5 F/-15 C out there. Almost beach weather! I can get you a large mug of super strong dark roast, a piping cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. Oh, were are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as begin from New Hampshire.
OK, I mentioned weather. If you remember, last weekend I said it was the coldest weather so far this winter. Well, that changed. This weekend is colder! yesterday was frigid and super windy. Today is just as cold, but thankfully a bit calmer. It will warm up a little this week. We had some snow last Tuesday night, so the ground is covered. We are supposed to get more this week, maybe up to a foot (30 cm). Not a lot (for NH!) but enough.
This has been an odd week. there was work of course. I had a doctor’s appointment on Monday and massage on Wednesday. I didn’t run (and I feel it) but tried to make up for it by using a row machine I picked up late last year (Christmas present to myself). No matter how hard I push, it does not have the same cardio as running. I did some weight exercise. I played with and walked dogs. I continued learning math (actually review). All of the usual stuff.
Oh, quick comment – last week I saw a fox up close and personal while walking the dogs (see my Weekly Smile). Is aw it again on Wednesday, after the snow. It’s bright red really stood out against the snow!
Thinking of red, back on New Year’s Eve, I took a photo of Mars and just now looked at it. (I took dozens, but like this best). So, over the last few months I got photos of Jupiter and the moons and Jupiter with Saturn. To this collection, I am now adding Mars.
I think last week I mentioned that I am completely finish with my book, The Old Mill, and I shared the cover photo. This week I announced that it will be released on February 9. More news on it coming!
In preparation for the release, I started to play with my web presence. The first thing I did was move to a paid blog instead of the free one. The main reason was to get rid of the ads! Since then I have been shining up some old web sites I have had rusting in the background. I will post about those sometime this week.
For the most part that is it. I need to do stuff – even though it is cold, I always have to stay active!
Thanks for stopping by. If you have a coffee share I’ll try to stop in and say “Hi!”
