Hello and Welcome! Come on over and I’ll get you a large, steaming mug of super-strong dark roast, a piping cuppa tea or some hot hot cocoa. As you may be able to tell from my description of the beverages available, it is cold! But it is sunny, and sitting behind the house we are blocked from the worst of the wind, so it shouldn’t be too bad. Where are we? Some may recognize that photo as being from New Hampshire. And, yes, there is still snow where it was taken, though a lot of the snow is gone.
First up is weather. The beginning of the week actually was pretty warm, and then came Tuesday. It got down to about 5F/-15C and the high was about 15F/-9C. Cold, but the worst was the 30 mph/48 kph sustained winds. I have been out when it is far below zero F and felt great, but when it is windy like this? Unless you are dressed for Mt. Everest, you will be cold. Wednesday was actually pretty nice. But then the north wind continued to blow, and it hasn’t been above freezing since Wednesday afternoon, plus the wind has been strong, up in the 20s mph. Sunny, but brrrr… Of course, tomorrow will be the last day of cold, then it will be in the 60s F (over 15 C) by Wednesday. Yeah, crazy. Remember, in New Hampshire winter is never over until April. We get a major snow storm almost every March, and there have been years with more snow in March and April than the rest of the winter combined! So even though we may see mild weather this week, it is not over!
Let’s see, I did keep my running routine good up until Wednesday, and I hope to get out today. I have been doing a lot of dog play, but not as many walks – Idina for some reason has not wanted to walk. I did take Fiyero for a personalized little jog (he trots when walking alone, so I jog to keep up) on Thursday and Friday. We went places that Idina he always wants to visit but Idina always bulks at going. Yeah, Idina is the rescue and has some idiosyncrasies – she even nipped at my massage therapist this week when we met her while walking! Naughty. I also exercised, read wrote, played musical instruments, etc.
Work was busy and will continue to be busy for a while.
And that is mostly it. Just surviving the end of winter.
Despite the fact that it is still pretty chilly and there is still a little wind (15 mph), I do plan on spending as much time outside as possible – it’s sunny!
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to make a visit.
