Hello and Welcome! Come on in out of the cold! It is frigid out there today. Yes, a pretty day, full of polar sunshine, but also polar air! I’ll get you a steaming mug of coffee or a cuppa tea, a mug of hot cocoa or other warm beverage. Brrrr, you’ll need it! And where is it so cold? The photo at the top is pretty new, but some of you may recognize the McDonald’s Pub mug and so know that it is in New Hampshire, and so are we.
An odd week. I do not talk about work much, except to say that I am kept very busy and that (one of my roles) I am a program manager for a web hosting environment that gets many millions of hits a day. I might say in my “about page”, I’m not sure, but I rarely say where I work. For very good reason. I am not going to say now, except to say that when I return it will take weeks to catch up…
I have been doing work around the house.
I been spending a lot more time trying to stay up with all of those blog entries – a few days I literally read blog posts for eight hours and only hit about a quarter of those posted in my Reader for those days. How do people do it? I could spend 24 x 7 trying to keep up and still not come close, yet there are people who have liked every single post I read before I get there!
I have been getting a lot of writing done. I have also been editing my latest book and am almost finished with the third draft (it is two novellas I did a couple of drafts each before the first draft of the book itself.) If you don’t know anything about what I am working on, here is the blurb.
Of course there is the usual. I have been playing with the dogs. Exercising. Massage. I do not watch TV, but yesterday I watched “Eight Days a Week”, a documentary about the Beatles’ touring days. Ironically, when people were int he house last week I put on the movie “A Hard Days Night” as background since I was sick of the news yet the dogs actually like background noise – they stay quieter and bark at the wind less if the TV is on. Also last week I watched a documentary about the British Invasion of the early 60s, which included The Beatles, of course. So a lot of Beatles!
Well, the dogs are whining, so I need to go out and take a walk. I really need it – I have been in front of the computer for almost three hours! And I am still not even 1/10th of the way caught up with the blogs…. Even in the cold, frigid weather, I do have a lot scheduled for the day, so I will cut this short.
Thanks for visiting and having coffee (or whatever) with me! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. If you have a coffee share I will try to stop by.
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! (Note – it is coming back! A lot of people have rejoined and there are plenty of new faces :) ).
