Hello and Welcome! Sit down and I’ll get you a nice steaming mug of super strong dark roast, a piping cuppa tea or some nice hot cocoa. What do you mean you are cold? It is up to 15 F/-9 C already! And the sun is out and there is no wind. It’s a heat wave! Where are we? Some may know the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire. I know, this is the longest stretch in NH without a weekend on Cape Cod in 8 years! Not just by a little, but by a lot.
As I said last week, we are in the heart of winter now. I’m sure everyone knows that the Polar Vortex has taken up residency in central Canada and has had effects over most of North America. Actually, looking at the forecast, we will be getting closer to normal temperatures this week, but not warm. (Two days ago it showed a deep freeze for the week ahead).
This last week I worked, as usual, and it was very busy. I exercised, but no running. i have been using the row machine, which helps cardiovascular a bit, but not even close to a replacement for running for me. I walked and played with the dogs. I played music – besides my electronics, I have started to do some finger exercises on my piano again, but not spending a lot of time with it. I had massage. Still no haircut (my hair is longer than it has been since I was in high school, and the bangs even longer than then. I read, wrote and drew as well.
If you read my weekly smile you know my adventure with my cell phone. I’m glad I was able to find it!
And if you have read my blog recently you know that I finally released the book, The Old Mill.
I also announced a joint plan with Yvette Prior of doing a “blog party”, or link up, in June to talk about Dickens’ book, Little Dorrit.
Anyway, I need to go out and enjoy the sunshine, cold or not. Thanks for dropping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop in.
Just a quick aside. I did a series of character sketches to post here. As part of it, I used real sketches :) I really like this sketch I did earlier in the week of the town eccentric, Galvin.
