Hello and Welcome! Come on in! It is a bit cold out there (about 12 F/ -11 C), but with the sun and no wind, it feels warm. Still, I think you want to be inside, out of the snow. yes, we have quite a bit of new snow on the ground, and on everything else (lol), but not as much as expected. Here, I’ll get you a nice super-strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. Better? Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
I will start with the snow… on Wednesday they were calling for 12 in/30 cm of snow. On Thursday evening they upped it to 16 in/40 cm. What did we get? About 6 in/15 cm, maybe an inch or so more. I’m not complaining! I went out a few times yesterday and shoveled, so it was all good before I went to bed. I zipped off the dusting we had on top of it this morning so the sun can reach the pavement, and car, and warm it up to melt all remaining off of those surfaces. After that, I took a long walk in this winter wonderland :)
OK, odd week. I had Monday off, and so a very long weekend (I took Friday off as well). After being on Cape Cod last week, I drove back to New Hampshire late Saturday. I didn’t get a huge amount done, but it was nice to have the time.
This week our Lions Club hosted/sponsored a “Meet the Candidates” meeting. We have elections of local officials in a couple of weeks, followed by “Town Meeting”, a place were the town’s people can vote on many items, including proposals that go beyond the basic town budget. There is also a school budget meets and votes coming. Anyway, so we had a Zoom meeting where the candidates for the open positions could introduce themselves and answer questions. Luckily I am no longer the local Lions’ president, so I didn’t have to talk ;)
The dogs are in Maine, so there was no puppy play. I did run o0n Monday and did some exercise at other times this week, but I am still in a slump and need to get back into the routine.
Beyond that, I worked, I had massage, I took care of, and played with, kittens, I read and I did a little writing. Hmm, what else?
Oh, music! I posted two more movements of my Piano Sonata in c# minor this week and will put up the fourth soon. I will make sure I do at least one more blog post about them. I also practiced the piano and have been working on a new music project. A lot of this project has been learning new tools, so it is going very slow…
Anyway, so that is about it. Thanks for visiting! If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop in and say “Hello”
