Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a mug of strong French Roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa! It is cold outside, but not nearly as frigid as it will be in the next couple of days. I’m talking there will be temps down to -13 F/ -25 C. Well, in New Hampshire, at least. From those Beatles mugs you may guess, I’m on Cape Cod this weekend.
It was a busy week. Work just seemed busier than usual. If you’ve been following my coffee posts you know that my work has picked up for me in the last 6 months. Given that, it was even busier this week. Yeah, maybe a bit too much. But still, better than being bored.
I was also busy at home. I had to shovel relatively small amounts of snow three times in NH over the last week and the snow clean up after I reached Cape Cod was pretty intense. Not as bad as last year when I was greeted by the Foss-McDonald Glacier, but still quite a bit of snow to move around.
The last week also had a lot of bouts of chasing dogs through the woods (the love the snow and love exploring and, well, get wild) and general dog sitting. I voted on Tuesday in the First in the Nation Primary, New Hampshire Primary. Sounds impressive, but the last few election cycles NH’s vote was pretty meaningless to the over all decision on the candidates.
I’ve been busy doing other stuff, like exercising, reading and going through stories for my upcoming book of short stories.
In blog land I haven’t been as active in reading as I have in the past since I’ve been so busy. I’ve tried to keep a good posting schedule, though. I started the week on Sunday with a silly post about my hat. On Monday I put up some pictures of the snow we received last Friday. On Tuesday I asked a few questions about what you like to see in a short story collection. Wednesday was my Weekly Smile! I smiled about voting and talked about voting in general. If you found the subject too dry for a smile, I added pictures of my dogs playing in the snow :) On Wednesday night I posted some flash fiction for this weeks Friday Fictioneers. On Thursday I did a “throwback” post about old wool sweaters. On Friday I posted a video about love from “The Fiddler on the Roof” and a short story that is a different love story.
Well, that’s about it. Despite the cold I’m planning on being outside as much as possible today. I’m on Cape Cod. I have to be outside, right? I’ll try to keep up with the blogs, but it is sunny and not as cold as it was supposed to be (they moved the worst of the cold back a day.)
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, If you don’t do a coffee post, perhaps you should consider it ;)
