Hello and Welcome! Come on in and grab a large mug of very strong French Roast, a cuppa tea or other warm beverage. Actually, we’ll pour them into travel containers. Don’t take off your coat or mittens! We are heading to the beach.
If you didn’t recognize the picture at the top or catch the clue in the last sentence, I am down on Cape Cod, which is good because I missed the eight inches of snow I hear we received in New Hampshire. I’ve been down here since Tuesday night and will return tomorrow morning. It’s been a nice little break!
That is what this week has been about, taking a break. I’ve relaxed and have done a lot of nothing, meaning walks in the woods and the beach, playing with the dogs, editing my short story book, writing a 7000 word story on Thursday and posting it on Friday (yes, it’s long for a blog post!), and other such things. You can read about them on one of this week’s Weekly Smile posts.
One of the posts? Yes! Since this is week 52, that is one year into it, I’ve decided to do a post every day this week. Maybe ;) We’ll see on Monday and Tuesday how I feel. But I do have at least two more planned.
Which brings us to blogging. I did a small slowdown on the blog, at least as far as reading, but noticed everyone else had as well, so I didn’t get very far behind. I did end up posting quite a bit. I started Sunday with a Weekly Smile Reminder, which was more of a reflection on the season. I skipped Monday. On Tuesday I posted a poem and a “meme” about not sitting in front of the computer. I posted a Weekly Smile on Wednesday. I then posted a Weekly Smile on Thursday, as well as a Friday Fictioneer 100 word story. On Friday I, surprise surprise, posted a Weekly Smile and then the 7000 word story I was talking about earlier.
As I said, as soon as I click “Publish”, I’m heading to the beach for a long walk. It’s a little less windy today than yesterday, but also a little chillier. It should still be nice. And I’ll do my long walk in the woods this afternoon and I might get out on the kayak one last time this year – if there is little wind, why not? So I have a busy day planned, or possibly not planned. (Here is a picture from yesterday – I love patterns in the sand).
I’m glad you could join me for this nice walk! Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by for another chat.
I hope you have a great weekend and a great week ahead! Happy New Year!
