Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of strong
French Vienna Roast (I know, I haven’t had much French Roast lately), a cuppa tea or other warm beverage. It is cool and grey out there with a few showers off and on. You’ll want/need something warm! And where are we? Many of you will recognize those Fabulous Fab Four mugs as living on Cape Cod. Yes, I spent Thanksgiving just a few miles from where that mythic first T-Day took place.
My week since the last coffee share started off on the top of a mountain. OK, it didn’t actually start there, it started at home in the dark, but Saturday was about “big mountain” hiking and I left you on the mountain at the end of my last coffee share. I’ve put up one post about Saturday’s hike and have mentioned it a few times in other posts. And there will be more ;) Sunday had a little more light hiking, but from there on out I tried to take it easy for my leg to heal (for the swelling to go down) from my fall. I only worked Monday and Tuesday, but both days were insanely busy. I have a huge stack of work to catch up on when I return!
My week (Tuesday night until now) down on “the Cape” has been nice. Mostly I’ve been relaxing. I’ve read quite a bit and have just finished a major editing run of my short story book. I’ll go through it two more times before I have someone double check it for grammar, word usage, typos, etc. It is getting closer! Besides that, some walks in the woods and taking care of puppies and relaxing.
I’ve stayed up with the blog for the most part, but it is very slow – the slowest week of the year since most Americans are too busy celebrating Thanksgiving to blog. I put up a number of posts, including two smile reminders, one talking about a short hike on Friday and the second after I finished up the hike on Sunday, seeing the third waterfall. And then, third post in a row, I talked a little bit more about the hike(s) on Friday and Sunday ;) I know I was stretching it, but I did want to say more than I said in the two smile reminders. It’s a great walk! So Tuesday I decided to go a bit darker and wrote a poem equating the November darkness with a darkness of the heart. Wednesday was, of course, my Weekly Smile post, this one about my big hike on Saturday. Thursday I put up a Thanksgiving post, mentioning a few of the big things that I am thankful and/or grateful for – family, health, being able to provide healthy food and living surrounded by beauty (nature). On Friday I paused my editing to talk about editing and doing drafts of my stories.
Today should be another quiet day. I’ll read, write and edit and other such things. I’ll also try to stop by and have coffee with my friends here! So if you have a coffee post, expect a visitor.
Thanks for stopping by! I know, this has been all about me, but if you have a coffee post,as i just said I’ll stop by and we can talk about you :) See you soon!
I hope you are having a great weekend and have a great week!
