If We Were Having Coffee on the 3rd of November

Hello and Welcome!   Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of a very strong Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage.  We’ll have to dry you off.  It has been raining off and on all day, at time pouring like there was no tomorrow.  The streets were ponding when I was last out visibility would occasionally be limited by the very heavy, torrential downpour.  At least it’s not cold!  We’ve had so many days of 40F (4C) with strong winds and constant rain.  Brrr.  My least favorite weather!  Today it is low sixties (about 17C).  And where is it raining today, besides the entire east coast?  Some of you may recognize that those Beatles mugs are down on Cape Cod.

I may make this short, at least for me.

I was sick this week.  I missed work on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Yeah, I missed more work this week than the previous four years combined.  Literally – I have been out sick one day since 2014.  When I was at work, things went as normal…

I started to do some of the final editing on Embers before I get into formatting.  I have proofreader sending me lists of mistakes.  After that, I will do a couple more passes.

I drove to Cape Cod on Wednesday (after message – I always forget to mention that ;) ).

And really that is about it.  I was sick so didn’t do a lot, and most of what I did do was just normal routine.

Anyway, I am busy doing stuff around here, which is why I actually hit afternoon instead of morning as usual.  I need to get back to it, so will stop here.

(Oh, one other little thing – Wednesday was my birthday…)

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you had a good week!  If you have a coffee share, I will try to make it by and chat over at your place.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

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!

    Happy belated birthday. Sorry it was in a week when you were sick! I hope you got to celebrate! It’s been raining here all week too. Sort of depressing. Katie is making me nuts. No rain today, but cold and windy. Sitting here watching the colored leaves blow off the trees. Pretty. But it just means winter is almost here. Uh oh.

      Thanks. Did a little celebrating. It is actually pretty here today and seems more like October than it did in October… Oh well, but the leaves are going quick so, as you say, winter is almost here.

      Have a great week!

    Happy Birthday Trent!
    Poor you, why is everyone sick at the moment? Seen that you are never sick (or are you only ever sick on days that you are off from work?) it must have been quite something.
    I got your message for the advent calendar :) I will reply… but I have been sick and still am a bit for well over a week now. I managed to work on Monday and Tuesday, but had to cancel Friday… when you are freelance it’s definitely not fun. So I hope that things will be back to normal as soon as possible…
    enjoy your Sunday!

      Thanks. I’m sorry that you were sick as well! My wife works free lance, so she worked this week even though she was about as sick as I was. Yeah, I don’t get sick often, at least nothing bad. Last week I spent a good part of the day on Tuesday and Wednesday sleeping, so…

      I hope you are feeling better! Also hope you don’t miss any more work.

      The 60+ weather felt nice – that is what it supposed to be this time of year, not 45! And it isn’t supposed to rain every day.

      I have 4 photos for the coffee share – one for New Hampshire (I need another), one for travel and two for Cape Cod – this one and one that is three mugs (a Beatles mug, a ski resort and an Edward Gorey mug. Google him – my cottage is 15 miles from the Edward Gorey House museum).

      Hope your weekend is going well!

    Happy belated birthday! I hope it was a good one in spite of you being sick. See you around the coffee share (I’m doing NaNo this year, so I’m off to go write… or procrastinate, more likely).

                yes – we have that in common for sure – and did you ever wonder why some birthdays are never forgotten – whereas others are?
                Like I still recall some of my friend’s b-days from 6th grade but cannot recall my neighbors (sometime in Feb) – weird

                    yes – and two ex-boyfriends – Jan 2nd and Jan 13th!
                    right there ingrained in my mind.
                    I used to call the one every year to say happy b-day (the 13th) but then decided to stop in ’93 – his new gf was not into it (but he was because we were still good friends) and so i do not call that sweetheart, but think of him on that day
