Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a mug of super strong Dark Roast, a cuppa tea or a hot cocoa. It is still a little cool out, but it will get pretty warm later today. OK, warm is a relative term – it will be around 45 F/ 7 C. But the sun is shining and it is absolutely gorgeous outside! And where are we? Some may recognize that Edward Gorey mug as being only a few miles from the Edward Gorey House on Cape Cod.
Two quick things. First, although I was planning on using a photo of the mug anyway, I decided that I will connect it to Chelsea Owens’ Terrible Poetry Contest winner for this week. This week as full of morbid, little Willie poems and someone compared them to our fried Edward.
Next, if you are observant you may recognize that this is the third week in a row I have been on Cape Cod. I had a reason to be here, but things happened, and… Anyway, since I had it penciled in on my calendar (really – I am a computer nerd but use a paper calendar and really do pencil things in…) I decided to come. It’s been nice :) In ways I enjoy being here in the winter more than the summer when I have to share the road with a million people…
Work was busy, but a very short week (Monday and Friday off). I got a hair cut. I played with puppies. I went running. I did my weight exercise. I walked in the woods. I walked on the beach
I played musical instruments. I did work around the house on the Cape. I patted cats.
I shoveled snow that turned to slush and then froze… Yuck. I drove home from the Cape on Sunday and back down on Wednesday. When all is said and done, I will have had at least a foot on Cape Cod for 15 days this month.
Anyway, I have a very full agenda and so I need to get up. If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop by, but no promises – I tried last week and failed…
