Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong French Roast or a cuppa tea. Actually, since it is so hot would prefer something iced instead? I already have one request for some iced green tea, which I should be able to manage. And it is hot here. It has been in the 90s F/ 30s C off and on for the last few weeks. We did have some cooler weather and much lower humidity mid-week, but it is back to hot and humid, reaching like 96 F (35.6 C) yesterday. And we are still in a bit of a drought. And were are we today that is so warm? Some of you may recognize that the coffee mug and synthesizer at the top of the page are in New Hampshire.
It was an odd week. I spent last weekend on Cape Cod. On Tuesday I had new Internet service install. There have been a lot of growing pains involved. For one thing, the wifi had to be relocated so my office was totally without Internet. I picked up an extender and I think it’s having issues. It seems to be working fine now, but the lights on the front show there is no connection. I could only show a connection when it was very close to the wifi source and the wifi source actually sends a stronger signal, so there was no place that the extender worked. Well, I ignored the lights and tried a few spots before finding a place that seems to work.
There’s been exercise, walking dogs and other such things, but little else in my private life until today. Last night a nephew came in and spent the night with us. In the morning we drove down to a local diner where my brother and his family met us. Of course my nephew headed north with them after a nice brunch.
It was a busy work week. At times it seemed everything I touched turned to lead, like the anti-Midas touch. Most of it worked out in the end, but it was still a little frustrating. And busy. Next week will start busy, but hopefully will calm down after a bit.
I had a hard time keeping up on blogging since my computer was in an odd place with a different monitor. So I did some visiting, but not enough. I did get a few posts out, though.
I started the blog week with a Weekly Smile reminder on Sunday. On Monday I put up a post about race relations and such things. I put up a poem on Tuesday. Wednesday morning I posted my Weekly Smile for week 29 and in the evening I put up a 100 word story for Friday Fictioneers. On Thursday I wrote a throwback story about a nasty storm on the 4th of July in my early childhood and the fireworks, with a bonus, that occurred in August of that year. I wrote a short story for Friday.
So that was my week, and it was good week, if busy. 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 ;) Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you soon!
