If We Were Having Coffee on the First of Spring (March 20), 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and sit down and I’ll get you a large mug of strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is a bit cool right now – last night was pretty cold, the coldest it will get in the foreseeable future! – but it is warming up and will be typical early spring in New Hampshire warm soon. It is sunny and there is little wind. I started writing this exactly 3 hours after the equinox, so happy Spring three hours ago! Where are we? If you didn’t notice that I already told you and you do not recognize the photo at the top, we are in New Hampshire today. (Photo is last year, but it looks like that today.)

This was an odd week. The weekend was nice, but it turned down right frigid on Monday. And with the time change, I was as worthless Monday as I can remember. It was a hard work day, but I did little else. It slowly warmed up as the week went on, so that was good.

Work was tough. A lot going on on!

I did the usual exercise, running, playing with and walking dogs, reading, playing my keyboards including piano practice, writing and such. Typical week in many ways.

Funny, on writing, my WIP came to a stop on Thursday. I hope to get back into it over the weekend. I did write a couple of short stories (micro-fiction Friday Fictioneers and a piece of flash for the new writephoto).

And that was mostly it this week. I do have a lot planned for today – our Lions Club is having a drawing in an hour (I will be doing it) and a lot of other stuff, so I have to go.

Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to visit, but no promises – I plan on being outside all day.

Natalie the Explorer is now the host of the weekend coffee share and she is doing a wonderful job. Stop in at this week’s main share page or go to the InLinkzlinkup to see all of the other shares!

      lol, nope you will have to wait until December to see that again ;) It has been a nice few days and I’ve been outside as much as possible. I have even seen a few flowers. You mentioned a lot of rain – I hope you are getting flooded out! I know it has been pretty awful and even here we are seeing photos of the flooding.

    When you retire you have no schedule so losing track of time is pretty easy. Jack’s first chore of the day is checking the garden for new sprouts coming up lol. Life moves slower but is more enjoyable because you have the time to sit back, relax and enjoy it.

      I already know that when I retire I will need to make a schedule if I really want to get things done! Too often I will come up on Sunday evening and realize that I didn’t do 99% of the stuff I had planned for the weekend ;) Getting up and looking for new sprouts sounds like a good use of spring mornings…

    What’s WIP?

    I’m not a fan of “springing ahead” with the time. I would be happy if we stopped time changes. They don’t do this in many countries and all’s well with them.

      Sorry, WIP = Work in Progress, which in this case, means a book that I am writing. This one is centered on a legend from my home town.

      I do wish they’d cancel the entire clock change thing. There used to be an argument on energy use, but it really doesn’t pan out in today’s world.

      So far a great weekends with a lot of outside time – 5 walks (and some play) for the dogs and a 5 mile run for me :) Hope your weekend is going well and that you have a wonderful week!

      Sometimes spring here is like flipping a switch – going from consistently having highs of 38 to highs of 60 overnight… So, yep, enjoying spring – spent pretty much all day outside. Hope your weekend is going well :)

      So far it’s been nice and I’ve been able to avoid the inside of the house for most of the day ;) Hope you are having a great weekend as well and that you have a wonderful week ahead!

        We went up to explore the communities where he’s applied to gauge cost of living… And living conditions. Found the businesses and gave them a drive by viewing. Then picked up Chinese carryout and had a car-nic. Like a picnic but it was too chilly to be outside so we ate in car. It was a good day.

    I hope that the weekend treats you kindly! We have barefoot weather, this weekend, but a “chance of snow” in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. Your post has reminded me that I need to put piano practice into my schedule formally, beginning today. I keep thinking of it when it’s too late in the evening for noise. Best wishes for your week!

      barefoot weather to snow in a few days! It happens, but… glad it looks nice ahead here. I play my keyboards through the day, but the more formal “practice” occurs when I feed the dogs. They want me to stay in the room with them, so I do scales and such as they’re eating. It isn’t much, but time on a real piano helps with my other keyboard work.
      Hope your weekend is going well and you have a great week!

      The forecast does look nice. it is often like that. We will go from winter to a few weeks of yo-yo weather and then, like a flip of a switch, it is suddenly spring. Thanks for stopping in!

    Doing these weeks in review is a good idea. It would help me remember what I did in any particular week. At the moment I don’t have a clue where the week went. Maybe that’s a side effect of being retired.

      There is a possibility that some day, most likely many years from now, I would like to go through and look at all of the weekend coffee shares (since 2014!) and all of the weekly smiles and draw up a timeline of my life beyond just the appointment calendars I keep…. Not many more years before I discover if I do lose track of time when I retire.
