Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of a very strong French Roast, a cuppa tea or something other beverage. It looks like it’s going to be a nice day, which is great since it has been so cold and wet (yes, again) the last few days. And where am I? Some of you may recognize the phot at the top of the page as being down on Cape Cod.
Despite the wet and cold, it looks like summer is here. I took a ride out to my favorite beach this morning. I hit a few traffic jams at 7:30 AM on a Saturday! And the parking lot at the beach was already full. OK, not full, but when there are almost a dozen cars as opposed to me being the only car, well, it seems full. There were people everywhere. For people who don’t live in this country, this is Memorial Day weekend, the big American kickoff to summer. Every person who has a seasonal house/cottage/cabin/camp on Cape Cod seems to be down. I have usually gone other placers on Memorial Day, so this is new to me. I guess I knew it was busy, I just never experienced it.
I had yesterday off but did very little. I did hit the beach and made it into the woods for a few minutes, but it rained most of the day. Also, my Internet connection is down. I’ve been using my phone to connect, but my data plan is limited, so I haven’t spent much time on line. On the plus side, I have written more than 10,000 words on The Old Mill and about am about done. I just have the final wrap-up chapter to go.
Work is work…
It’s been an odd week. It’s been busy and I’ve gotten a lot done, but it has also been slow in many ways and I feel behind. And, of course, this Intranet thing is driving me crazy. I might do a post on it later….
I did try to post every day this week. I put up my typical Sunday Smile Reminder, and later, on Wednesday, I posted a new Weekly Smile. I posted a chapter of The Old Mill on Monday and another one on Friday. Friday’s chapter is getting to the meat of it all. I had a rant about people who think science is false. I also posted some nice photos I took on Cape Cod a couple of weeks ago. Of course I did Friday Fictioneers and a story for Sue Vincent’s #write photo.
Today I will make more calls on my Internet service and hopefully get it straightened out. I also want to spend some time outside. Maybe I’ll kayak, take a walk in the woods, go down to the beach again and other such things. Perhaps I can even take a lot of photos. We’ll see.
If you thought that was a hint that I am about to slowly show you the door, well, I guess I won’t deny it. But it was great having you stop by!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend. If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by your place and see what you’ve been up to. (No promises since I don’t have an Internet connection.)
