Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice strong French Roast or a cuppa tea. Yeah, it’s a bit warm and humid in the house so you may want something a little cooler. That’s fine, I’ll find something. The day is kind of grey, warm but not hot and very humid. Yesterday was a scorcher and you can still feel it in the air. It will stay this temperature until sometime tomorrow when a front will come through and push us back into a more normal cycle for fall with the nice, cool nights. I think this is all from the tropical storm that hit us last week dragging moist tropical air with it.
And where is “here”? Some of you may recognize that stack of Beatles mugs as being down at the cottage on Cape Cod. Yes, two coffee chats in a row here. Well, more than that.
Last week was a vacation week. In ways it was a very long week – I drove down on Wednesday the 31st and worked from here Thursday and Friday, though I took a couple of hours off on Friday. My parents got here on Friday and stayed until Thursday, so almost a week.
It was a weird week because of the weather, but we still did a lot. There were daily walks on the beach and walks in the woods. There were trips out to the ocean beaches to watch the huge tropical storm waves crash in. There was nice food. One night we did a fire in the fire pit. I got out on the kayak a few times and I’ve been swimming in the ocean. There was also taking care of dogs, reading writing, talking etc. So a good week.
I tried to stay up with blogging. I did a lot, though not as much as I have at other times. I also posted quite a bit. I started off on Sunday with a reminder for the Weekly Smile 35. On Monday I did a very short post about the grey, pre-storm weather. On Tuesday I did an experimental poem trying to get the intensity of being in love. On Wednesday I posted the Weekly Smile 36. On Thursday I did a post about expressing the inexpressible with poetry. On Friday I posted a short story that was trying to recreate some of the feeling of the love poem but in prose and then I wrote a post about expressing the inexpressible in prose. Yeah, a lot of writing.
I’m not really sure what the day will bring, but I do need to start winding down and getting ready to head “home” and getting back into the routine of work. I may go swimming today and do other such things. I might also do a lot of work around the cottage. Who knows. And, oh, as I wrote this the sun just came out! Perhaps it will be a nice day.
Anyway, that’s about it for me this week. How was your week? 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!
