Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I will get you a nice large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some other beverage. It is a gorgeous day out there! (I hope you get that that means I have to be short here ;) ). Oh, were are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as coming from Cape Cod.
If you joined me last week, you know that I was one Cape Cod then as well. Did I go back to New Hampshire and return so soon? No, I have been down here for over a week. Not just that, I took some time off of work. I had Monday already, so I took the rest of the week. For years this was the week my parents came to visit, but I just saw them in Scotland, so… Anyway, I decided to take the week anyway.
It rained all day Tuesday, and Wednesday was cold and wet, if not rainy. Thursday started off cold and wet as well, but the clouds blew off a little after 3PM. In other words, not the greatest week weather-wise, made worse that the forecast was much more optimistic.
I did the usual stuff. I kayaked a lot, I had walks in the woods and by the salt marshes, I swam in the ocean, sat on beaches, walked on beaches, ran by the beach, read, walked dogs, took care of cats, exercised, had breakfast out one morning, etc. Despite the few bad days, a typical week off on Cape Cod.
I know I just had a long stretch off of work (Scotland), but I was not relaxed, and work has been insane all year – take the previous most stressful year in my life and multiply it by 1000. I did need this time off, so I am happy that I took it.
Anyway, I do need to get out there asap – the weather is absolutely perfect, the best all week, and I hate begin inside!
Thanks for stopping in! If you have a coffee share, I will try to visit.
