Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is a little chilly out this morning, but it will be warmish later today. The sun is shining, and, yeah, pretty typical for late March or early April. Jacket weather, but not coat. Oh, where are we? I know I only used that photo a couple of times, but some of you may still recognize it as Spring in New Hampshire (the red trillium aren’t out yet, but will be very soon!)
This was another odd week. First, I spent it mostly alone – my wife and dogs are on Cape Cod (they haven’t been there all year!) and I am home alone with the cats. So although I did a lot of walking, not dog walks since Monday afternoon.
Work was… OK, enough about work.
I did a lot of light reading, but haven’t started anything new since I finished Bleak House. However, I did read my latest book of short stories out loud, correcting as I went. There were actual few corrections. I haven’t touched it since early September, so I had no idea what shape I left it in. Not bad. I may be on to the formatting stage very soon…
I did a little piano practice, but very little music this week. I did go over the book covers I had made earlier for the short stories, and did a little correction, but little visual arts. Hmmm, what did I do? Besides edit?
I kept up with my exercise routine, which was good. It was pretty frigid on Monday and Tuesday (it didn’t get above freezing for well over 48 hours, and with windchill, was below zero F. It felt like mid-January) so I really didn’t get out much those two days, but tried to make up for it the rest of the week.
Oh, quick story. On Sunday I was takign the dogs for a walk. We got to the street in front of the house and Idina froze (what’s new?). There was a loud noise from the woods. I knew it was a tree, most likely the one that was broken off, leaning on another tree, shifting. I joked with Idina that the farther we were from the house, the safer we were. And then, as if the tree heard me, it fell. The dogs and I watched it all of the way to the ground in my back yard. BOOM!!! Idina was not happy ;) Just a reminder, this is what it looks like behind my house:
Well, it isn’t that green yet. It is also much steeper than it appears in the photo.
Anyway, it is sunny and pretty out, so I should get moving. Thanks for stopping in for a chat! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you have a coffee chat, I will try to visit.
