If We Were Having Coffee on the 9th of November

books-n-coffee

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other warm beverage.  It is a little nippy out there, but it will warm up later.  And where are we?  I haven’t used the photo at the top often, but some of you may recognize it as being in New Hampshire.

I have to say I don’t have time for a long visit. I was just told that I had to go to an emergency School meeting for our town.  I have a hair cut appointment today. I haven’t been able to run in almost two weeks and today was the day I was supposed to run, but right now I’m not sure if I’ll have time. I hate that it is dark by 5!

Anyway, I had a pretty busy work week but not awful. I had massage on Wednesday. I spent a lot of time reorganizing my little studio. I did normal things like play with the dogs and walk them. I cooked, ate, cleaned up after dinner, etc.  I started the raking. I was planning on continuing today, but don’t know if I’ll have time. Maybe I will and just not do the other 1001 one things I had planned for the afternoon.

OK, the studio reorganization was the big one. I’ll talk about  that later…

Anyway, sorry to be so short, but I am late.  I hate suddenly having 2 1/2 to 5 hours of my taken away when I already had plans! I have heard rumors about this meeting that make it sound like it will be ugly and it may stretch on and on….

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend. No guarantees, but if you have a coffee share I will try to stop in and chat.

The Weekend Coffee share is hosted by Eclectic Ali .  This week’s share is here. and the link up is here.

    Getting in a bit late here. Went home for the weekend. I hope the meeting wasn’t too bad and that you got a little bit of running in. I envy you that ability. I’m hoping in the spring to replace my bicycle since we now live in a place where there’s a place to store it. I used to ride between 15 – 25 miles a day all told. Hope you have a great week, Trent!

      Thanks. When I wrote my coffee share post I did not want to go, but I am glad I did. One of those community service things we need to do :) It is great to connect with so many authors out here in blogosphere. It’s been a very busy weekend, but good. I hope yours was good as well and that you have a great week ahead.

    Hang in there Trent. I’m not fond of this type of surprise either but dealing with it is part of this whole adult-thing – which still does not make me like things like this. Hope it went better than expected.

      The meeting went a lot quicker than expected, so i was still able to get a lot done today. I had sat down to write my coffee post and was told not only that i was going (which I didn’t know) but we were leaving in ten minutes – ugh, not a good thing if the day is planned, but it all worked out and I’m glad i went.

    You are a man on a mission, for sure. Hope that board meeting went well. Those can be quite a challenge. Saturday morning seems like an odd day and time for one, though. I do appreciate the cuppa tea and will get out of your way! Have a great one!

      It was a busy day… The meeting was a budget meeting for a warrant article for funding. Anyway, it went a lot quicker than expected so I did get my run in ;) I hope you are having a great weekend :)

    Good luck with the meeting! Sorry your Saturday sounds so hectic. I do think I have some papers to grade, but I will take my time. I need to start editing on my work in progress, Malachi. The increased darkness makes it a good time for writing or editing. Just have to make myself do it. I hope you find a moment to relax. Take care.

      The meeting went better than expected. I did get a lot done today, which is great. I do need to get back into editing! I finished the second draft of my WIP over a month ago, had a beta reader look at it, and need to start the third draft…. I hope you got some time to do your grading and that your weekend is going well :)

      The school budget meeting didn’t take as long as feared, so I did get a run in and a bunch of stuff done. I still have a lot to do this weekend, but it’s a relief to have this stuff out of the way. I hope you are having a great weekend :)

      It’s about funding and people’s tax dollars. I am 100% pro-education, though there needs to be accountability, but there are those who think a penny of public money spent on public education is a penny too much… Small New England towns are pure democracy – everything is brought in meetings, people discuss it, then there is a vote. I won’t say the particulars on this case, but I was told I needed to attend, and with a couple of hundred people in attendance and the issue being won by less than ten votes, maybe I did need to be there…

    Best wishes to you and the community concerning the meeting. Will be keeping you in mind. I’ve had my morning square of chocolate and toddy coffee, and am settling in with my first cup of tea for the day. Looking forward to hearing about your studio reorganization! I am finally trying to tackle in earnest the chaos from turning my home office into a bedroom, since my retirement (now years in the past). Motivation…
