Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of very strong French Roast. Or you can join me in a cuppa tea. Yes, I am drinking tea this week. I went about a month mostly caffeine free, but yesterday I started drinking tea again. We have many types to chose from, but I’m having an English Breakfast tea. Unlike the English, though, I have it with just a touch of honey. No milk, cream, lemon, processed sugar, etc. I’m sure you won’t want to stay inside long as it’s a gorgeous day out there. Yeah, I won’t be in long either.
And where is “here”? Long time readers of my blog may recognize that mug as meaning we are in McDonald’s Pub in Co. Mayo, Ireland. No, no, no, no, even though that’s what the mug says, that’s not where we are (unless you really are!). We are in lovely New Hampshire, and as I said, it really is lovely today.
It has been a great week, but as great weeks go, when I think back on it there are few things that stick out. Isn’t it weird about humans that we often remember the bad before the good? That bad tales make better stories than good? Maybe I need to keep a diary so I can have more to talk about!
First, it is spring. The week began cool and wet, but it has been warming up and has been sunny. And the forecast is mostly sunny for the next few days. It will get quite warm coming up, but not hot. I always hate hot days in early spring. They feel out of place. We’ve had one or two, but so far it hasn’t been bad.
I was on Cape Cod last weekend, which was great. I can now say I have kayaked at least once every month so far in 2016.
I have been very busy at work, which to me is very good since i enjoy what I am doing. I have also been pretty busy at home and have spent as much time as possible outside.
I’ve been a little better at keeping up with blogs this week, if not fantastic. It is time consuming. Yes, I enjoy reading people’s blogs and interacting with them, but there are only so many hours in a day and there is so much to do! I vote for a 36 hour day and 9 day week. Maybe I could fit in 2% of what I want to do instead of 0.5%
I also posted quite a bit this week. On Sunday I posted a reminder for my Week 14 Smile. Early Monday I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get a post out. I felt so far behind and didn’t even want to think about blogging so I re-posted something about how to get back into the habit of blogging after time of, Getting Your Groove Back. On Tuesday I posted a poem about being in that limbo where life just goes by, neither good nor bad. Wednesday, of course, was my Week Smile #15, this one about the little things that make life worth while. Look around you! No matter your situation, if you look at life you’ll see that it is good. Thursday morning I decided to open up so old sketchbooks and share some of my older drawing with you. In the afternoon I put a piece of flash fiction for Friday Fictioneers. On Friday I posted a short story written from the point of view of what might be thought of as a villain. Of course, the main character thinks he’s the hero. Later in the day I posted a second Friday Fictioneers story. This story is as close as I have ever gotten to “fan fiction” as it is based loosely on The Who’s Tommy. My original thought was autism awareness, but somehow Tommy came out instead.
Now if you’ll excuse me it is a beautiful day and the outside is calling my name. I will be bouncing in and out and will try to visit you if you’re having a coffee share.
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 ;)
