Hello and Welcome! Come take a seat and I’ll get you a large mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, or some other beverage. It is a beautiful day! The sun is shining and the sky is a deep blue. It started out almost cold, but is pretty warm now. You can feel Autumn in the air. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
OK, I can’t go farther without mentioning the date I wrote at the top of the post. Yeah, it has been 20 years since the terrorist attacks of 9/11. I have a friend who is a retired NYC firefighter who is down in the city this weekend. In 2001 I worked in the air traffic control facility that first reported the hijacked aircraft and made the decision to ground all of their planes – watching documentaries it is always interesting to see people I know being interviewed about it. So I am thinking about the date, but I don’t want to bring it up beyond acknowledging it.
I had a bit of a vacation at the end of August, so this week was very much about catching up at work and getting back into a NH routine. Not too much stands out. I ran a couple of times and did my exercises. I bought a set of Bowflex dumbbells, so I used those on Thursday for the first time. I had massage on Wednesday. I walked the dogs and Alexander – he is a very much a hunter! I played with cats and kittens. I puttered around the house. I played music (keyboards). I got back to editing. I read. Typical week in most ways.
I have spent a big chunk of the morning outside and plan on going back out soon – it is gorgeous! Autumn is by far my favorite season of the year. I love being out in it, even more than in the summer.
Anyway, that was a hint that I am signing off ;) Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share I will try to stop by, but, as always, I can’t promise – the outdoors are calling and I may not even think about a computer for the next 48 hours!
