Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of Dark Roast (not sure what’s all mixed in it ;) ), a cuppa tea or other beverage. It’s an odd day out there, but after pouring rain all day yesterday, I am going to have to get out in it. I hate spending the day inside! And the last few days have been…, well, that’s what the coffee post is about isn’t it? And where am I today? Some of you may recognize that photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
The big thing about this last week was that I spent Thursday through Tuesday in Colorado. I did a lot of hiking and other stuff like that. It was a good time. I’ve just started going through photos and will have a couple of photo posts later, but here is one I liked:
You can read a little more about it and see three other photos on my Weekly Smile post.
On bad thing that happened is that I dropped my phone while hiking.
Yep, it’s dead. Funny thing, this phone has taken a huge amount of abuse in the past. I’ve thrown it while running and had it land on pavement. It took the brunt of my fall last year, which put gouges in the screen. And so when it fell I was shocked that it broke. It must have just landed wrong.
I worked Wednesday through Friday and had a lot to catch up on. I did take a little time off on Wednesday to go buy a new phone. I use my phone at work. That’s how people contact me when I’m telecommuting. It is how I attend meetings. I live on my phone.
One thing I did was write a bunch of posts before I left. I went in each morning of my trip and put up the day’s post. I did answer some comments and such, but did very little visiting.
Going back to my last coffee post, which was some prepackaged, on the road, coffee from a filling station, I put up a few posts. Of course there was the smile mentioned above, a Smile Reminder for last week and last week’s Smile Recap where I posted links to all of the Smiles that I had gathered. Sorry if I put a little rant about the need to smile when the world seems to be taken over by those who frown and hate.
Thinking of that, I also put up a book review (sort of) for the book Hidden Figures. I used the review to talk about racism in America, or at least bring it up.
The rest of my posts, and many last week, were devoted to The Fireborn. I reposted the promo video, I put up a cover reveal (it’s great) and I announced the launch date (the 21st – Monday!) and talked about about the availability of the book for Kindle preorder.
Wow. No wonder I am tired. But I have dogs whining at me. They spent most of the day inside and want to go out! So I must get moving again.
How was your week? If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by and take a look.
