Hello and Welcome! Come on in out of the rain. We’ve been having a bit of drought here so the rain is welcome, though why it has to hit on the weekend is beyond me. Actually, we had a few quickly passing thunderstorms during the week, but within 10 minutes of them going by the ground was already dry and dusty. Hopefully this longer, soaking rain will help. Some of you may realize that the drought I’m talking about is happening in New Hampshire. Hint for those who don’t know, that picture at the top of the page (rustic analog synthesizer on rustic wood stand in rustic studio in rustic NH) is the one I use when I’m “home” in NH as apposed to Cape Cod (two different pictures) or elsewhere (a virtual travel mug I was given by yprior at In the Zone).
Here it is Saturday already and I have no idea what I did this week. Ever have weeks like that? Monday was a holiday (Independence Day, 4th of July) and so I spent the day being independent, or at least away from work. I know I went running and did work around the house and such. I know I cooked on the grill, which I do most nights that the grill isn’t covered in a foot or more of snow or it isn’t pouring down rain. Beyond that, I remember very little. It was warm. Actually, it was a warm week. Maybe that’s why my memory is gone – I’m a cool weather person.
Work was on and off busy, but not insane like some weeks. Parts were very quiet since so many people take the week of the 4th off. Parts were busy because, well, that’s why they call ti work.
Hmm, playing with puppies (actually dogs, but they are always puppies to me), exercise, working around the house, editing the stories for my book, wasting time on the Internet… what else was there? Like i said, I remember events of two and three weeks ago better than last week, the week lost in time.
My blogging is getting more consistent. I’ve been trying to catch up on reading, but still not enough time. As far as writing, well, I’ll let you judge. I missed my typical Sunday Weekly Smile reminder, but I decided to turn my 4th of July post on Monday into a Weekly Smile reminder, that is after babbling about some dates in US history. On Tuesday I reblogged a two year old poem about catching a glimpse of another person where you really know them, you see their soul, and for a fleeting moment you are not this single entity in the Universe, but have connected with another being. Yeah, a poem about that…. Wednesday was my Weekly Smile post, this one about relaxing in the backyard. I mean, we spend so much effort to have a nice place, shouldn’t we enjoy it? Thursday I did Friday Fictioneers. Twice – story 1 and story 2 – they’re 100 words each, so I’ll let you discover what they’re about ;) On Friday I wrote and posted a story, The Art of Slaying a Dragon. I was looking at pictures I had drawn for the blog and this one popped out so I used it. What do you think of the picture?
So, yeah, that’s about it. As usual, I have a lot of plans, though not all outside this weekend. From these little chats we have over coffee I’m sure you can tell I’m the type that enjoys doing things more than sitting. Sorry if I seem a bit restless ;)
So that was my week, and it was good week and is getting better. 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 ;)
