Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you (Beatles’) mug of very strong French Roast. I can also get you a cuppa tea or hot cocoa or other beverage. It is a little nippy outside and feels colder given the unseasonably warm weather we had earlier in the week. And where are “we”? Some of you may recognize the Beatles’ mugs and living at the cottage on Cape Cod.
I took a couple of days off of work this week and came down here Wednesday night, a nasty ride in the pouring rain. Thursday morning was rainy, but warm. As the day went on the rain stopped and the clouds dispersed. It grew cooler, but it was still warm enough for me to get out in the kayak for a while.
If you’ve read my last few blog posts you know I’ve been very busy. Before this break that hasn’t really changed. And because of that, I’ve made this break a real break. I’ve stayed outside a lot, walking and such. I’ve been lazy a lot. I’ve avoided things I need to do. And I’m recharging. On Sunday I will go home and back to reality. I don’t see things slowing down much for quite a while.
On the blogging front, yeah, I got behind. I had tried to put up a post every day. It was a goal. But then I missed Monday. I missed again on Tuesday. The only reason i hit Wednesday is I felt I had to do a Smile post. I also missed reading blogs. In some ways it is the reading more than the posting. I can write a new post in less than 10 minutes – Wednesday post took me 15, Thursday’s 5. But reading? There are days that I get up and start reading posts from the night before. It takes me 2 hours to catch up. By then there are 50 new posts. I feel like I’m drowning. I can literally read blog posts all day and never ever keep up. There are a dozen or two of you out there that I try to read every post, but even with these, that’s hours a day. I feel like a hypocrite if I post and don’t read other people’s posts. And I never, ever “like” a post without reading it.
OK, enough complaining. Sorry for the rant.
Oh, yes, though I missed Friday Fictioneer this week, I did participate in Throw Back Thursday linkup over at Part-Time Monster’s blog. Check it out!
So, on the blogging front, on Sunday I put up a recap of my year with #1000Speak. I missed Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday I put up my Weekly Smile post. On Thursday I put up a short post about kayaking in February. On Friday I put up one of the local legends from my hometown in Northern Ohio.
Oh, another “funny” thing. I was alone in the house last Sunday. Some unexplained things happened, including a scarf hanger (I think) being opened up and a wire in my path. I walked right into it. What is ironic is that I talked about having my eye poked as a child several times during the day. On Sunday I was also asked about a friend who was partially blinded as a kid. I did some research and discovered he had passed away in 2010. So having my eye poked was a weird irony. This picture was taken Monday morning. It looked uglier as the week went on, but is now looking (and feeling!) netter. I’m sure it will stay red for a few more weeks.
Anyway, that was my week, good and bad. I’m going to continue my little action and spend as much time out and about as possible, but I’ll try to get to all of your coffee posts.
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 ;)
