Hello and welcome! Come on in. Well, for a minute while we get drinks. It is great outside for a change and we don’t want to waste more than a minute inside! As usual I have a very strong
French Sumatra Roast, a variety of teas, hot cocoa, water, etc. We can sit out back and put Fiyero and the long leash so I can keep a hand and eye on him. Ah, great, isn’t it? Oh, you want to know where we are? By the photo at the top, yes, all of those great Beatles’ mugs, some may know that we are on Cape Cod.
Some of you may have seen my pre-recorded “I’m not here right now” Coffee share last week. If not, you may have seen my post Home. No? How about my week 75 (75!!) Weekly Smile? I spent a bit of time last week in Ohio visiting family. I fly in last Wednesday and back on Monday. It was a nice visit, and besides the above mentioned posts, I will most likely do a photo post later.
I’ve had some time off of work, but also worked a lot. We are getting quite a bit done, which is always satisfying, but there are few end products to hold up and say, “Look at this!”
I am still having Internet problems down here on Cape Cod. I am using my phone’s data. Not ideal. I call Comcast, they say someone will be out. Nobody comes or calls. It has been out a month. A MONTH! And nothing has been done. Can you say frustrating? I knew you could.
Yesterday was a beautiful day, but after work I hung out inside waiting for the non-existent Comcast guy to show up. Grrrr. Today I will not wait and will enjoy the day. It is a gorgeous day! I’ve had two dog walks, two times playing with the dog in the back yard and a long walk on the beach. That’s what i get for getting out of bed at 5:30 ;) I will go to the beach again, take a long kayak ride, take a couple of walks in the woods, more playing with the dog (just Fiyero, Idina is in New Hampshire) and possible more. I will seize this day and squeeze every bit of juice out of it.
Since I last talked about it, I have posted at least four more chapters from The Old Mill. These chapters are the first big (fake) climax. There is more to come ;) The chapters from this week are Found (on Monday) and Discovered (on Friday). I also posted a few other works of fiction including two works of micro fiction for Friday Fictioneers (both on the same image), Treasured Plants on Wednesday and Creativity Interrupted on Friday. I also joined Sue Vincent’s #writephoto with a story, Wings. I didn’t think I would have a post for Tuesday, so I re-posted a poem, Words Unsaid, but I later posted a new poem, Journey. Some of my music posts have been getting a lot of attention lately, so I posted a new one for a video i recently did, Challenge Thirteen. I also posted a link to Bob Dylan’s Nobel Lecture. It is great! And it combines music and literature.
I will not link to posts from the week before, but you can find them if you wish….
How have you been? Is the weather nice? Oh, did I say the weather is great today? yes? Sorry, I’m just looking outside and dreaming… Oh, sorry. I guess we need to start wrapping this up, then.
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.)
