Hello and Welcome! Sit down over here and look up into the woods. Isn’t it pretty? It is cloudy, but warm. The week started far below average temps, even snow in places last weekend! But it warmed up and we are back to normal. We even hit 80 (27 C) the other day – it was super humid, so it felt like summer. Oh, were are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as begin from New Hampshire, though it is now green!
Yeah, it is great that the weather is so much nicer. We had nasty storms come through Friday – there was even a tornado watch! But now it is just mid-to-late-May. Nice, comfortable.
No matter what people say, spring is always late here, late and short. Yes, we had a colder and wetter than usual spring so far, but it just feels as bad as it does because of the warmer and drier than usual winter. Oh well, glad we are closer to normal and warm!
This was an odd week. Work was busy, but what is new? I spent a lot of time outsides, but what is new? I played with pups on the wooded hill that you can see in the photo at the top, I walked them, I took walks on my own, I ran (more about this later), I exercised, I wrote, I read and and played music. In fact, I am starting to practice a little more, that is, do scales and things instead of just play. I had to pick up cat food and, on the same trip, swung by a friends house to pick up a new mask – photos later ;)
Since I have been running more consistent lately, I have started to stretch my runs. Yesterday I did a new run. Actually, one I used to do many years ago. It isn’t much longer than what I did the two runs before (about 5.2 miles/8.4 km), but it starts with a 2 mile/3 km uphill that peaks out at over 900 feet (275 m) – a 525 foot (160 m) climb. It might not seem much, but, yeah, that is quite the climb. Also, it took my to a local high point. There was a great view of Temple, Pack Monadnock and North Pack Mountains. In fact, I think this is the highest point east of those mountains, so the view was fantastic. Anyway, I will be getting that view a couple of times a week when I am in NH, until I decided to stretch the run again….
OK, so I am posting this on Sunday… I just did not feel like being on line yesterday. I don’t today either. I want to go to an Internet-less world for a few weeks, but I know that won’t happen… So, yeah, I’ll be around on and off today.
And speaking of that, it is time for me to check off and take the dogs for a walk. Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share I will try to stop by. Hope you have a great weekend :)
