Hello and welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice big mug of a strong French Roast. Rather have tea? We have that too. It’s a beautiful day, if somewhat cooler than it’s been. But, wow, more about that later.
And were am I? For those of you who have stopped by before you may realize by the photo that I am in New Hampshire (NH) today. Quick remark about last weekend – yes, i did spend most of last Saturday outside. There were two long walks on the beach. I should say “beaches” because i hit two. there was a nice 4 mile run. And just plenty of time spent away from any screen. But I did have to return to NH and reality. Well, reality but not normality.
This week has been very warm. Unseasonably warm, in fact. For early November in NH, 75 F (24 C) is warm. Despite the warmth, the change of seasons seemed accelerated this week. On Monday there was still plenty of reds and oranges in the trees. By Wednesday they were almost totally brown. Today there are few leaves left of any color. It was amazing watching the changes occur almost hour by hour.
I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but it has been very busy at work. This is not a bad thing. I have been enjoying my new position and responsibilities so busy is good.
I feel busy at home and yet my to do list is growing, not shrinking. Part of it is that I have taken time out to write, play music and blog. Add on things i have to do, like make dinner, take care of the dogs, the things that I need to do but the world won’t fall apart if they aren’t done this second get pushed back. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to take a break from blogging or writing. By the way, whenever i say “I’m playing music,” or “I played music”, that means with my hands on a musical instrument. Some people think I’m just sitting around, Pink Floyd cranked up, zoning….
I did quite a few posts this week. Even though I did a Coffee post last Saturday, I decided to write a short story for Halloween. It is based on some local legends were I grew up. On Monday I posted some fall foliage pictures mostly taken around my town with a few pictures from Cape Cod thrown in. On Tuesday I wrote a poem to one who I have never seen. Not face to face or even an image. On Wednesday I put up a post about my Hamlet Symphony. I hate putting up promotional posts, but I did include a video, say hey, go check it out ;) I posted a photo on Thursday for a Throwback Thursday post, not to be confused with a “throw back Thursday”, since this picture is a keeper. On Friday I posted another short story, one of the darker ones I’ve posted here.
I’m going to try to get out an enjoy the sunshine today! Oh, yeah, and maybe do some of that work I said was piling up. Hmm, sunshine, work, sunshine work…. Tough decision to actually act like an adult.
That’s about it. That’s how my week went. And how about you? How has your week been? I hope it was good! If you do a coffee post I’ll try to catch up most likely on Sunday or Monday, though no promises. If you don’t do a coffee post, perhaps you should consider it ;)
