Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice hot mug of a strong dark roast (not sure what it is, but not French Roast like usual), a cuppa tea, some hot cocoa or other warm beverage. It is cold out there, but not as cold as a couple of weeks ago. I’m talking 15 F/ -9 C. It will get above freezing today! It has been so strange that March has been much colder than January or February this year. A lot colder. And the snow storm we had on Tuesday was pretty bad, but not as bad as expected. We still have deep snow, almost knee deep, on the ground. So, where is it so cold and snowy? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being up in New Hampshire.
It was busy week at work. I had four hours of training three days, but everything else was at its normal fast pace, so I literally would sit for six hours or more without moving. I hate that! I usually am able to get up and stretch and even take a short walk, but not this week. Anyway, it wasn’t a bad week, just not great.
Somehow I did get a lot of blogging in. Part of it is that I wrote a lot last weekend. I put up quite a few chapters of my serialized story, The Old Mill. On Monday I posted Lyndsey, on Tuesday I posted Thursday Conversations, on Thursday I posted The Old Mansion and then on Friday I posted A Night Out. Besides these four chapters, I put up a new page that contains a Table of Contents and I on Friday I put up a post asking what people thought of a serialized novel. My concern is how time consuming it is. Will people actually read it? I just write out the chapters and they average about 2000 words.
I did post some other short fiction this week. On Wednesday I posted a 100 word story for Friday Fictioneers. On Thursday I posted a story for #writephoto. I also posted a poem on Tuesday, as normal. Of course I also had a Smile Reminder on Sunday and my Weekly Smile on Wednesday. On Monday, in answer to a question by Britta on her blog, I put up a post about middle aged men and 20-something women. In ways the real meat of the post was in the comments. There was a lot of good discussion.
OK, so a total of six works of fiction (almost 10,000 words), a post about some of the fiction, a new page, two smiles, a poem and a discussion about aging! A busy week…
(If you don’t feel like counting, that’s 11 posts and 1 page!)
Besides writing and reading, I’ve been doing a lot of snow removal ;) I also attended Town Meeting for a couple of hours (I left early). Don’t know what Town Meeting is? I’ll do a post about it soon. On Wednesday I got a hair cut (see phone selfie below for haircut). I’m sure I missed something, because I’m still out of sorts over the time change on Sunday.
Today will warm up a bit and I’ll get outside. I hope to run! I also have to do some running around town. As usual, I’ll be in and out all day. After sitting on my bum all week, I will need to move a lot!
I’m sure you can tell that I’m about to politely head you towards the door. I am glad you stopped by! I know I talked about myself here. If you have a coffee share I’m sure I’ll stop by and it can be all about you, OK? I’m looking forward to coming over for a visit!
