Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of a very strong Sumatra Roast. You can also have a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is actually not that cold out, but it is damp with occasional passing showers. I want/need to get out! I think I’ll risk getting wet…. And where am I? Some may recognize the photo at the top as coming from Cape Cod. Some may also realize that this is my first post from here in over a month! I’m usually here every other week….
Anyway, a busy week. But what did I do? Hard to remember!
I did some winterizing in the house and broke down and turned on the heat. I also did a little raking. I still need to do the front yard, but… i also need to rake here, on the Cape. I brought my car to the shop for the yearly inspection and break emplacement… With my hybrids, the breaks always rust out before they wear out.
There was also work. It was busy, but for the most part there was a lot accomplished. That is always good! On Monday I gave a briefing to a group that included my manager, his manager and his manager. A little nerve wracking, but it turned out well. It was also nice that several people from several teams this week point to me as their SME (Subject Matter Expert) on a variety of subjects. Always nice.
I did some writing. I may post a few things, but maybe not. Sometimes I like to keep things off of my blog so when I publish them blog readers may have a few surprises if they read the book. In my upcoming book, Embers, there are a few stories, including a 15K word novella, that never saw my blog.
Speaking of Embers, I did a cover reveal this week:
Also this week, here on the blog, I brought back my Weekly Smile! I was a little surprised, but not surprised, at how well it was received. People seemed to be waiting for the return. We can all use a bit of positivity, can’t we? :)
Well, that’s it for now. I’m hoping to get outside, rain or not. The dogs are restless. I’m restless ;) The beach is calling! Not kayaking weather, but I will do other things.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop in and say “Hi!”. Have a great week ahead!
The original Coffee Share kind of died out, but it has been revived! Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in! Hopefully we can bring it back to its former glory!
