If We Were Havign Coffee on the 31st of July, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and I’ll get you a nice large mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a bright and sunny morning. A little on the cool side (refreshing!) with a nice breeze. The humidity is as low as I’ve seen it in a long time. Perfect! Where are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being my backyard on Cape Cod.

OK, for starters i did pick up my car after the last coffee post. I even wrote a weekly smile post about it :)

Besides work this week, I had a Lions Club meeting. I think this was the first normal meeting in over a year. I had a dentist appointment (cleaning, etc.). And I had massage. I walked and played with dogs, walked and played with kittens and just walked on my own. I did a little work around the houses. I ran (I am not running enough and can feel it!). I exercised. I swam in the ocean yesterday afternoon, though it was just a quick dip.

If We Were Having Coffee on the 24th of July, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and welcome! Come on over and take a seat. You can look off into the woods while I get you a mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a little cool this morning, but it will warm up into a nice late July day. Where are we? Some may recognize that photo as begin from New Hampshire.

OK, the big thing this week was my car, or lack there of. I was almost back from Cape Cod on Sunday when my car over heated. A few long waits while it cooled didn’t do any good. Anyway, So I left it for four hours while I went and got some coolant. Yeah, it leaked out as I was putting it in – not good! By the time I got home it was dry, though not overheated yet. I charged it (plug in hybrid = about 20 miles all electric) so I could drive it to get serviced. There were other issues, so I had them look at several things. Besides wildlife destroying pieces parts inside of the car and making a mess, there was a new water pump for the coolant (no animals involved in that one). I should be able to pick it up this afternoon….

This week there was work, dog walks and play, my walks and play, cat walks and play…. I ran once (been off running this summer!) but I should run today. Exercise. Reading and writing. Playing music (keyboards) and drawing.

If We Were Having Coffee on the 17th of July, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and I’ll get you a large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a little humid and hazy out here today, but not too hot, so the breeze feels comfortable. Where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo (though new) of being from Cape Cod.

I came down here on Wednesday evening with Alexander. He has been so cute! He cuddles up with me every night, and stays pretty close during the day. I took him for a walk yesterday, and he loved to explore.

I did a little mowing on Thursday, but from the photo above I am sure you can tell that I need to do more ;) I really haven’t been able to do a whole lot else, but I did get a long kayak paddle in this morning, even if it was a bit foggy.

In the early part of the week I played and walked with dogs, I was only able to run once (it was hot and humid!), but have gotten some strength exercise in. I had massage. Our Lions Club had a barbecue/meeting on Tuesday. And I worked.

That’s mostly it. I do hope to get a lot done today, but we will see what the day brings. I’ve entered a new part of my appliance saga and hopefully will get some clarification today. And there is that mowing. I need to do a lot of clearing and organizing. And hopefully I’ll be able to get out and enjoy myself!

Thanks for stopping by! I need to get up and start doign stuff. I hope you are having a great weekend. If you have a coffee share post, I will try to visit, but no promises.

Natalie the Explorer is now the host of the weekend coffee share and she is doing a wonderful job. Stop in at this week’s main share page or go to the InLinkzlinkup to see all of the other shares!

If We Were Having Coffee on the 10th of July, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and take a seat. It is a nice morning, though it is a bit humid. Cool enough for a hot beverage, though, so I can get you a mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other similar beverage. Oh, were are we? Some may recognize the photo as being from New Hampshire.

Some of you who are observant may know that I haven’t posted in a while. In fact, my last post was July 1. I was away for most of that time. I went to northern Ohio, on the shore of Lake Erie, to visit family. I stayed with a sister, but my parents and other sister live in the same town. My brother came to visit, as did two of his three kids. All of the other nephews and nieces made appearances, as did their kids (for those who have kids).

If We Were Having Coffee on the 26th of June, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over, take a seat and I’ll grab you a mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is nice out here, not too warm though plenty humid. A slight breeze is coming in off of the cove behind the house. Can you see it out there, beyond the hammock and through the trees? Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.

I have been here on The Cape for a little over a week. As I said in in the last coffee share, I had last Friday off as an unexpected holiday. I also took Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off, so I had a little vacation down here! I did long walks on my favorite beach, swims in the ocean at the closer beach, runs beside the beach, long walks in the woods and saltwater marshes and did a few long paddles on the kayak. In fact I just got back from a paddle! I also did the typical dog walks and dog play, strength exercise, reading, writing, etc.

Hello and Welcome! Happy Juneteenth, the newest US Federal holiday. It is a gorgeous day. Come on over and sit here in the shade. Can you see a little of the cove back through the trees, maybe some sparkles of the blue water? I’ll get you a nice strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. Were are we? Although it is a new photo, some of you may know that we are on Cape Cod today.

I drove down here to “The Cape” on Thursday evening. It was been about three weeks, so I was shocked at how much my yard resembled a jungle. Anyway, I unexpectedly got Friday (yesterday) off of work, which was perfect. I spent a big chunk of the day on yard work. I also did a nice paddle – it was perfect conditions. In the afternoon I took a long walk in the woods. This morning I went to my favorite beach for a long beach walk.

If We Were Having Coffee on the 12th of June, 2021 #weekend coffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Sit down and I’ll get you a nice, strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a little on the cool side and damp after a night of rain, but feels comfortable. After the heatwave we had, anything would be! 5 days of 90 – 98 F (33 – 37 C) was pretty bad, particularly since it was very humid a few of those days. We then had a warm Thursday (not hot) followed by an almost cold Friday! The next few days will be closer to normal. Oh, where are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being from new Hampshire.

The big news this week was the weather. It was pretty oppressive! But not totally terrible. I did get out for some shorter walks, though the dogs chose not to most of the time. I didn’t run,but did strength executrices (I ran last Saturday before it was too uncomfortable and then on Friday). I did some yard work over the weekend and had someone come in and do some yard work that is beyond me over the week. And I tried to stay cool :)

Work was busy, as always, but not bad.

If We Were Having Coffee on the 5th of June, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and take a seat. It feels great out here right now, even in shorts, but will get warm later. We are expecting a heat wave that will last until, I think, Thursday. But it is a beautiful morning, so let me get you a large mug of super dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. Oh, where are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being New Hampshire.

I drove home from Cape Cod on Sunday morning. It was a rainy and cold weekend! It had been very hot, so the house stayed warm throughout, but still – the temps were flat-lined at 46 F/8 C and it rained almost continuously late Friday night through Monday morning. Yuck. But then Monday turned out pretty good. i took the day off of work on Tuesday, and it was a great day! I feel I got more done Tuesday that the entire weekend, including Monday.

Oh, we received our first batch of farm fresh produce from a local CSA (Customer Supported Agriculture) on Tuesday! It is all greens this early, but still great!

If We Were Having Coffee on the 29th of May, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and sit down. It is wet and cold (relatively speaking) out there, so being indoors is mandatory. I’ll get you a nice large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. You will want soemthign warm! Oh, where are we? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.

The big thing is that I spent the week on Cape Cod with just the new kitten, Alexander. Alexander has been my constant companion. He hangs out around me, wants to play with me, needs to sniff every morsel before it enters my mouth and sleeps curled up on my stomach every night. I do not know how he will react when we get back to New Hampshire and the dogs!

If We Were Having Coffee on the 22nd of May, 2021 #weekendcoffeeshare

Hello and Welcome! Come on over and take a seat. It is a little cool and damp, but still very much Spring! Hold on and I’ll get you a mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, some cocoa or other beverage. Better? We can sit here, smell the salt breeze and enjoy the green. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize that photo as being from Cape Cod.

So, the last time I was here I took a bunch of new Coffee Share photos for the Cape. I thought a couple were great and planned on using them. Of course they are up on my computer in New Hampshire, not doing anyone a bit of good.

And staying on the theme, I drove down here last night. This is a strange one because it is just me and Alexander, aka Super Scamp. Alexander actually traveled well and made the transition without a problem. He has been close to me more than usual, bu has also explored on his own. I think he loves having a new large house to explore! And being only 4-legged mammal is also great as he doesn’t have to worry watch his step.

This was a pretty busy week at work. not insane,but constant. It was also a busy week out of work. I had massage on Wednesday and a haircut on Thursday. i did take a few before and after photos on my phone, but haven’t looked at them yet.
