Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some other beverage. I think the rain is finished for the day, but it is still super wet out there and it is humid. Despite the wet, I will have to get out and about today. I know I will walk and puppy play outside as these are things I do even when there is a hurricane blowing through or the worst blizzard in a century. But it isn’t that bad today and I hope to do even more. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.
So this was a super busy work week. OK, far too much about work!!!
I think I told you last weekend that it goign to be hot. Yep, though not quite as bad as originally forecast. I mean, we only hit 95F/35 C, so not too bad 😏 There was also a breeze, so I spent most of the day on both Saturday and Sunday out doing things. I think it will hit 90 F/ 32 C in New Hampshire on Monday, so it will be three weeks in a row, in May, in New Hampshire, that there was 90 degree weather! Wow, and people complained about the cool spring!
I might talk about it another time, but just a quick mention – one of my neighbors has been having a sort of “boys club” meeting every Monday in his garage. It is just what you imagine, a handful of guys, most of them retired (a few of us aren’t) sitting around in an old garage, BSing and perhaps indulging in an alcohol containing beverage (beer or wine). lol. I never thought I would enjoy something like that, but I guess I’m getting old, or perhaps it is a post-Covid thing, but it is fun to stop by every so often, which I did Monday after work.
I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. It was just a routine checkup, but we also discussed the MRI I had in the winter. Yeah, the results were such that the cardiologist didn’t need to talk to me, so my GP did a quick overview. Anyway, nothing I didn’t know, so I should be relatively healthy for at least a little while longer.
I couldn’t believe how high the grass was at my house on Cape Cod. I’ll have to say that I use the term “grass” loosely, for I don’t know what percentage is actually grass… On the other hand, the grass itself was almost waist high and had already gone to seed! I see a lot of un-mowed lawns around (summer people), and not one has grass even as quarter as tall. My lawn must be special. I use an electric mower. It takes a little less than an hour for the battery to charge. The battery will last for between 45 minutes (super heavy load) and an hour and a half (normal conditions). On Thursday and Friday I spent three and half hours mowing, three battery charges. The three and half hours included stopping to pull these little trees that would grow back if I left any roots and picking up sticks (I had picked up most of them the last time I was down, but still some there). The area I covered was about 90% of what I would typically do with one charge. Yep, I still have mowing to do…
Yesterday I had to run to the town office to pick up beach stickers. I had them mailed, but they never arrived. The person who could help wasn’t there when I showed up, so I took a walk to a park near the town hall and then an exercise path/loop twice with an added detour, which ended up a little over two miles. About half way through it started to rain. It didn’t rain hard, but I was pretty soaked by the time I got back to the office. I was able to get new stickers so can actually use the beach this weekend, but have to keep an eye out for the old ones.
Some of you may have noticed that I really didn’t blog this week. Uhm, well, until they make 36 hour days…
So, yeah, this was another busy week. I hope to be able to sit back and relax a little over the weekend, but more than that, I hope to be able to get out on the kayak, take a few walks in the woods, do a beach walk or two, go running, ect., etc.
Anyway, as I said, despite the wet, I need to get out and do things! It is pretty, with a lot of flowers and such.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have a coffee share, I will try to visit, but I feel I have been pulled so thin lately that I can’t even give the half promise of a non-promise that I usually do. Anyway, hope you had a great week!
