Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice, strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or a hot cocoa. Be careful not to slip on your way in… We had a bit of an ice storm yesterday, and I have been trying to chip out this morning, but haven’t made much progress. This storm was one where it started as rain, turned to freezing rain, turned to sleet, turned to snow (slush on the ground) and then instantly froze as soon as the storm pulled away, so it isn’t that think clear/black ice, it is a porcelain cover over everything, but as hard as steel. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo as being from New Hampshire.
So, I am in NH once again? Sort of… I did drive down to Cape Cod Tuesday afternoon and drove back Thursday evening. I wanted to check the Cape house for damage after last weeks awful storm, where hurricane force winds ripped through as the snow that fell was measured in feet. OK, so when I got there I had to work a few hours with a shovel to get parked. Other than that, all was fine. I left early because of yesterday’s storm – they were originally predicting over a foot of snow (30 cm). But then the change over from rain to snow occurred much later than expected, so we have three inches (8 cm) of porcelain instead.
So, what else this week? Work was pretty busy and a few set backs, hopefully minor, on all of the projects I am working on. I did a bit of music practice and am working on a new song – for once I want to actually have more than just a slight idea before I start recording! I didn’t bring cats nor dogs to the Cape with me, but did plenty of puppy play and such when up in NH. I had a dentist appointment on Tuesday (I left for Cape Cod right after the appointment) and had an appointment for my passport on Monday. I think last week I told you that I have had at least two or three appointments every week this year, and it isn’t slowing down until March! Ugh! Stop the world for just a while so I can do what I want and not worry about stupid appointments and work projects! lol. Venting done ;)
One issue with all of the appointments and the odd weather is that I have exercised less in the last two months than I have typically been exercising every two weeks and I feel it! Yuck. My blood pressure is higher than it has been in years. Hopefully come March I will be able to start running three times a week again (I ran three times in January). I was able to do strength exercises once this last week, so… Anyway, now the venting is really done ;)
I also did some of the usual things, like read, so, despite some grumbles, the week was pretty good in a lot of ways. I enjoyed being on the Cape, even if just for two days and with all of the shoveling. I have been down there during bad storms and such, but not at the new place – it was so strange to see our road reduced to a single lane. But there was no problem walking, so :)
Anyway, that is about it, I need to head out and do stuff. Thanks for stopping by and
listening to me complain chatting. If you have a coffee share I will try to visit.
