Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you large mug of very Strong French Roast or a cuppa tea or some other beverage. You may notice, however, that I am not partaking. Today I am beginning an experiment of giving up my morning Joe. Why, we’ll see how long it lasts, but I want to at the very least get the caffeine out of my system before I start again, so a week. Once the week is done I’ll negotiate a second week. Then, we’ll see…
I think Spring is finally here! I say that as if it had been a harsh winter. Actually no, but those early warm day whetted my appetite for an early spring and it is finally here. We reached 78 F/25 C on Wednesday! It dipped a little below freezing last night, but there is no more below freezing temps in the long range forecast. No more very warm weather, but it is looking, feeling and smelling like spring. Oh, and in case you missed it, “here” is new Hampshire.
It was a pretty busy week but not insane like some of the past weeks. Even so, as usual I just feel my time has been used before I have a chance to do what i want. Oh well.
Today will be used for some initial spring activities. I’m going to start raking the yard. I have already removed the humidifiers. I’m going to take a load to the recycle center. Other stuff like that. I know we’ll still have some cold weather and possibly even snow, but I’m betting winter is over.
I got a chance to read a little more on the blogs this week, but still not as much as in the middle of winter. I’m not going to push myself and let it play out naturally.
Last weekend I finished the music I was working on and made a video for it with some animations. I put it up as a post on Monday. On Tuesday I did my usual poem, this one was about the not trying to pin down the nature of a woman. After I posted it I thought it could be all Women and would fit well into International Women’s Day. On Wednesday I put up my weekly smile, this one about Greek grandmothers. I joined in the Throwback Thursday Link Party with an old post about what you will do once your job title has been automated away. Later in the day I posted about how I feel an artist needs write/play/draw/whatever in a way that satisfies their soul, not what people tell them will make money. I couldn’t think of a story for Friday, so I wrote a story about not being able to think of a story ;)
As I said, I hope to spend most of the next two days doing work around the house. I’ll try to get back in and read blog posts, but i can’t guarantee it.
So that was my week. 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 ;)
