Hi! How are you doing? Come on in and I’ll get you a strong French Roast. If you prefer I also have hot tea and a variety of cool (non-alcoholic) beverages, though no soda. Yeah, I know, an American with no beer or soda in the house on the 4th of July – what’s up with that? Oh well, I’m just odd that way.
Oh, and thinking of what I just said, as most people in the world know, it is the 4th of July, the day people in the US celebrate their independence. Technically it was on 4 July, 1776 that we signed our Declaration of Independence, we really didn’t become a separate country for some time. Some might also say that our country as it stands was actually created when the US Constitution was ratified on June 21, 1788. On the other hand, it was on July 4th that we first really said we claimed to be independent of Britain (we’d hinted before). So this is as good a day to celebrate as any.
Oh, and if you didn’t notice, I’m in New Hampshire this weekend, as some of you might have noticed looking at my picture.
It was a very busy week. There is little I can point to and say, “this, this is what took all of my time.” It was just one of those weeks were i stayed busy living life. Since I’ve been out of the house for a while I had to do a lot of normal up keep types of things, like mow. I also practiced on my keyboards. I took care of puppies, and other such things. I exercised. In fact, I just finished a run. Since I’m going to run a 10K at the end of the summer I had started to push my distance. Today I was supposed to run 5 miles for the first time. I came in at 4.98 miles. Darn!
Blogging has been slow on all fronts. On Monday I reposted a haiku I did last year. Tuesday I put up a new poem. I also noticed Tuesday that I was getting real close to hitting as many views during the first six months of 2015 as all of 2014 and so put up a post to draw people in to reach that goal. And I did – thank you! Wednesday I posted about practicing, which, as i said, I’ve been doing a lot of recently. On Thursday, as a kind of Throw Back Thursday, I talked about books and stories I have created but never taken the time to write out. Unfortunately, for the second week in a row I did not post a new short story.
Well, it’s been fun having you! Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you all soon. I’ll try stop by for all of the coffee shares I can, but it’s going to be a busy day.
