Hello and Welcome! Let’s go over here to the table and look off in the woods. Beautiful, isn’t it? the large hill, all green? Of course you can see the trails the dogs have made, with a little help from yours truly. It is a beautiful day. It will get warm (86 F/30C), but not super humid, so nice. Right now, though, it is still cool. Cool and green. Where are we? Some of you may recognize that photo as being from New Hampshire.
It was a busy week. Most are ;) There was work, of course. I did a lot of writing. Stuff around the house. The tropical storm missed us, but we still had a bout of strong winds. Thankfully the storm pulled all of our humidity with it! It was hot (mid 90s F) and super humid, so a few cool days were welcome!
Over the last few days I continued my typical exercise routine and ran Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. On my Friday run, I cam around a corner and came face to face with a large critter. (Face-to-face means I stopped running towards it when I was about 15 or 20 feet away (6 m or so).) It was a very large critter. Huge. No, smaller than a moose, which occasionally show up in town. OK, if you didn’t guess it, it was a black bear, I’m assuming from the size that it was an adult male. I have never seen one from quite this close. Impressive. Also impressive how fast it ran into the woods and triple impressive how little noise it made as it rushed through the dense undergrowth of the woods! I often wonder how often I pass close to animals like this without realizing it…
Anyway, it is too beautiful of a day to sit here, so I am going to go out and do :)
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share, I will try to stop in and say hi.
Have a great weekend.
