Hello and Welcome! Come on in out of the pouring rain and dry off. Here, I’ll get you a large mug of very strong French Roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. If you are visiting after lunch I might be able to find a nip of something to warm you up ;) Yesterday was wet, cold and miserable. Today is starting as a repeat, but it will be much warmer (over 20 degrees F warmer). I’m sure you are asking where it is so wet and nasty. Well, pretty much the eastern half of the US, from what I’ve heard, but, as some of you may be able to tell by that Moog Voyager and coffee cup at the top, I’m in New Hampshire today.
I wasn’t in New Hampshire for most of the week. If you read last week’s coffee post, you know I was on Cape Cod over the weekend. I came home to NH on Sunday, but flew out on Monday. I had some training to do for work down in Washington, DC. The training was all day Tuesday and Wednesday and I flew home on Thursday. It was a nice class and I did get a lot out of it. I wish I could do more of those types of classes. In fact, I’d like to do more classes of any type…
Because of the way things worked out, I did get a bit of time in some of the museums. I spent a little time in the Natural History Museum and got to meet a few of Emily’s friends.
And who doesn’t like a T-Rex?
I also spent a little time at the Air and Space Museum (I have some phone pictures, but didn’t post any to Instagram or FaceBook, so I’ll have to pull them down later.) And i spent quite a bit of time at the National Gallery of Art.
I also go to meet a fellow blogger, Britta. I’ll talk about that a little more on my Sunday Weekly Smile Reminder.
Work was, well, training. But Friday was catch up day, and I never did quite catch up! Oh well, there is always Monday for that….
I did post some when I was away. One problem, though, is I’d get a post ready late at night and then post from my phone in the morning. I’d get very few views. I checked later and discovered that they were posting at the time I had saved them from my computer, not the time I posted from the phone. So unless people where going back to 8 PM the night before, they wouldn’t see the post I put up at 8 AM. I’ll never do that again….
Here is a quick recap of posting: I put up a Smile 69 reminder on Sunday and then the Weekly Smile 70 on Wednesday. Since that showed up Tuesday night, I put up a Weekly Smile Part 2 Wednesday evening. I posted an Idea (came out IIdea) on Tuesday morning (posted on Monday night though – I think I have 4 views….) and a quick poem about being out of town Tuesday evening. On Thursday I put up a Friday Fictioneer Flash Fiction story and later a #writephoto story. I also put up a chapter of The Old Mill on Monday and another chapter on Friday. So far I’ve posted well over 40K words on that story…
I have a lot to catch up on here as well as work so I may have to cut this short. Well, I know it is already long for a quick post, but you know what I mean. I won’t push you out into the pouring rain, but you’ll have to excuse me as i putter around the house.
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you had a great week this week and that next week is also a good one for you. I know the conversation, well, a bit one sided. If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by your place and then it can be one sided the other way, OK?
The Coffee Share is now hosted by Nerd in the Brain. Thank you Emily! You can join this week’s Coffee Share on her blog or by clicking on the “Linkup Linky“.
