Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice mug of very strong Sumatra (ha! I got you, not French Roast today) or a cuppa tea or some other morning appropriate beverage. It’s a weird morning. Unseasonably warm and very foggy. I can’t really tell what the day will bring weather-wise. I’m hoping nice, since it’s Saturday. And where am I? By the image at the top some of you may be able to guess that I’m on Cape Cod.
It was a weird week, good and bad. I’ve talked about our Penny Sale, both as a mention in last week’s coffee share and as my Smile for the week. I don’t even remember Sunday ;) No alcohol involved, just living and recovering from the day working. I did a lot of reading and beta-reading. I also did some writing – I recently finished another pass through my short story book. I still haven’t talked to one important beta-reader to do a final pass before low level editing begins.
Work was, well, up and down. A few major set backs on some projects, but some hope for the future. Yeah, there’s a reason for PMs to exist: we keep things running smoothly or pick up the pieces when they no longer run smoothly. We’ll see. A lot out there to do still.
I’m not back into the swing of things blogging, but I did read more and post more. Funny, my posts are still getting about 1/4 of the views they were getting back through the summer. usually October is a very good month. Still, we’ll see if it picks up if/when I start reading full time again….
I missed my Sunday Smile reminder, so my first post was Monday where I asked if it really matters if I take pictures of the amazing fall foliage. I sort of answered that on Thursday with a post of fall foliage phone photos as a smile part 2. I did post my Weekly Smile about the Penny Sale, but almost immediately followed it with a repost from Sue Vincent (read it :) ), that’s why I had a smile part 2. I posted two poems this week, one on Tuesday about the good side of the Internet/Blogging community, and one on Friday evening about putting emotional trust in your (boring) friends instead of someone filling your head with fantasy (nothing wrong with fantasy! I deal in dreams, but also have to talk reality on occasion). On Friday I also posted a story that’s a little grittier than usual for me, but with what I hope will be a nice twist. I also put up a new page, a list of all of the weekly smiles.
If the weather cooperates I will be spending as much time out of doors today as possible. It is still grey and damp, but yesterday started that way and quickly burned off. We’ll see.
Thanks for joining me for coffee! I hope you had a great week and I’ll see you soon. 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 again for stopping by and I hope to see you soon!
