Hello and welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of very strong French Roast, a cuppa tea, some cocoa or other beverage. It is a little cool, and perhaps a bit damp, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy the warm beverage. Oh yes, where are we? Some of you can tell by the picture at the top that we are on Cape Cod this weekend.
This has been a busy week. Work has been very, very busy. I still haven’t caught up from the week of training! And new things are constantly cropping up. On Thursday i met people on the executive team, which was nice. I mean, it was a room full of people, not just me, but there was a chance for everyone to talk.
Away from work it has also been very busy. To tell you the truth, I have no idea why it was so busy. I had Lion’s Club on Tuesday, but I’m not sure what else happened that would make me feel like nothing was done.
But I am on Cape Cod this weekend. Yesterday, after work, I took a very long walk in the woods and took a lot of photos. I spent a couple of hours walking the beach this morning and took some photos. I’ll make it back outside and hopefully spend most of the day out. Yes, it is cloudy and cold, but I still need my outside time.
I wrote very little this week. I did post a lot on the blog, but it was mostly things that had been previously written. For instance, I posted a chapter of The Old Mill on Monday, another one on Thursday and one on Friday, but all of these were written weeks ago. I didn’t have time to write a poem on Tuesday, so I reblogged an old one. I did write a 100 word Friday Fictioneer story. I also posted a smile reminder on Sunday and put up the Weekly Smile week 71 post on Wednesday. On Monday I posted some photos from Cape Cod and on Sunday I posted a “teaser” – a photo I took from a walk I took on Sunday. I will eventually do a post of that walk.
I also didn’t read other blogs as much as usual. Actually, that is true of the last three weeks. Hopefully I’ll find more time for that coming up.
I did finish the latest draft of The Fireborn and sent it out to a couple of people to do some editing. When I get it back, I will do one more quick draft, taking in mind the recommendations of the editors, and a quick proof read. Then I’ll send it back out for proof reading. And then, well, it will be time to format and such. Getting closer!
Anyway, there is so much to do today! I feel behind in my goofing off already ;) i don’t mean to be rude, but I am going to gently and kindly push you to the door. I have to run (I haven’t in a week :-( bad), I need to walk in the woods, i need to go to the ocean, I need to kayak (even though it is cold), I need to, well, you get the idea….
Thanks for dropping by! It was nice to visit. If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by your place and see what you’ve been up to.
