Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is still very cool out, but it looks to be a beautiful autumn day. Where are we? The photo at the top is newish, but you may know that rock wall as being in New Hampshire. And we have color at last! Here is a phone picture I just took from my kitchen window.
It was a good week. I worked on Tuesday, half a day Wednesday and Friday. Yes, super busy those days, but I had half the week off!
I drove to Cape Cod on Saturday evening and came back tot New Hampshire Thursday afternoon. I had to meet a contractor on Wednesday and I did a lot of work on the new house. I also did a very long kayak paddle as featured in my weekly smile. I walked on the beach and in the woods. And, well, did things I do on the Cape.
I think I told you about the wind storm and tornado a month or so ago. Well, a couple of days before I came down there was a tropical storm that moved off the coast shortly before I arrived. And then, this Wednesday night into Thursday there was a major coastal storm. I later heard that over night there were winds at over 90 mph (145 kph). I believe it – there were a lot of trees and large branches down. And on Thursday the sustained winds were 35 – 55 mph with gusts up to 70 (55 – 90 kph, gusts to 115 kph). It was windy! (between cat 1 and cat 2 hurricane force over night and tropical storm during the day). I heard that there were 30 foot waves on the ocean. I did witness 4 foot waves on Bass River! No kayaking. About this photo – I hate my phoe’s camera because everything is so distorted – just as the hill in the photo above is actually pretty close and towers over me, the waves in this photo are huge.
OK, so back on Friday and I wore a turtleneck for the first time! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may know that I will turtlenecks pretty much until the end of March… Again, a distorted phone photo…
By the way, after talking to Yvette Prior, I am not only wearing a black Turtleneck, I have on black jeans ;) You can almost see them in the distorted selfie…. And, yes, I always wear a hat.
It seems like there was so much else, but, you know, it is a beautiful day (see photo above from my kitchen window ;) ). I need to get outside! The dogs need to get outside! I need my fresh air, sun and fall foliage! So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be heading for the door….
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend. If you have a coffee share I will try to stop in and chat.
