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 a mug of hot cocoa. It is cold outside, but not frigid! A weird day, a bit grey and the air is damp. It will rain later. It was frigid earlier this week, but this weekend is more early March than late January (late March in NH is still deep winter!) And where are we. Drat, I told you already, but if you missed it and didn’t recognize the photo at the top, you know I am in New Hampshire this weekend.
It was a busy week, but one that I don’t really remember! There was work, and work was busy, but routine. Also, I had Monday off to celebrate Martin Luther King. Oh, and I did go into the office on Tuesday, which I don’t do often,preferring to telework when I can.
Remember last week when I said I was inspired and wrote and posted five stories? Well, I wasn’t inspired this week – I did my smile posts and one other (a story). That’s it. Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of super-strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a bit chilly out, but feels balmy after the screeching winds and bitter cold of yesterday. Quite a change from last week’s weather report, no? ;) And were are we? Some of you may know that Edward Gorey mug as being just a few miles from the Edward Gorey House on Cape Cod.
Wow, quite the week. I spent pretty much all of last weekend outside enjoying the weather. I even went running in shorts and t-shirt! I did the typical long walks, exercizing, other runs and a massage on Wednesday (hi Dottie ;) ). Wednesday evening I drove down here to The Cape.
I did a few walks in the strong wind on Thursday and hit the beach for the sunset. The entire sky was all sorts of cool (actually warm ;) ) colors that would be impossible to capture – you had to be there in the full 360 degree glory of it all. Here it is starting to dip down. Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you nice larg mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is actually pretty warm out there for an early January morning in New Hampshire. And the next two days will be quite warm. I’m assuming we’ll lose most of the snow. There is a major snow storm forecast for next Saturday and Sunday, but we’ll see how it goes. Oh yeah, this is usually the place where I ask about where we are, isn’t it? And I already told you, didn’t I? Well, I hope you enjoy the photo from NH at the top of the page anyway ;)
This was a very busy work week. I did get a lot accomplished, but still… Next week will most likely be as busy. No emergencies, which is good. I do not like those emergency meetings ;) Most of my week was about work. Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in where it is warm and dry! It is above freezing (barely) and raining out there. Yuck. But it is nice inside and I can get you a large mug of ultra-strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, some hot cocoa or other beverage. And where are we? Some may recognize the photo as being from New Hampshire.
So, it is 2020. Funny, I’m not the only one that thinks 2020 sounds like “the future”. Many other bloggers have stated it and I’ve seen several articles with headlines like “Welcome to the Future! But Where are the Flying Cars?” And walking out into the rain it is obvious that we still have weather….
I started the week on Cape Cod and drove up to NH on the first. There was a nasty snow/ice storm on Monday and into Tuesday, so my driveway was awful. After the three hour drive, I got out of my (stuck) car and shoveled ice for and hour and a half. Not as long as when I shoveled 26 inches of snow a few weeks ago, but I was using a different shovel and was chopping ice, so I got a super nasty blister. The joys of winter.
I returned to work on Thursday. Oh well, at least I have work… ;)
It has been a pretty slow week without a lot of excitement.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share I’ll try to stop by your place and say “Hi!”. If you want to join, or see what the others are doing, you can go to the linkup here.
Hello and Welcome! Come on in out of the cold and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, some hot cocoa or other warm beverage – you’ll need it! It got down close to 0 F (-18 C) last night! It isn’t as windy as it has been, so actually feels “warm” and it will get above freezing for the first time in a few days. This coming week will be warmer than last. Good :) Oh, and were is it so cold? By the photo at the top you may be able to tell that we are in New Hampshire this week.
Happy Winter Solstice! OK, the solstice officially arrives a little before midnight tonight, but who’s counting? Next week the days will begin to get longer again. And there was much rejoicing – no more dark by 5 PM. Off course we still have winter to look forward to.
Winter part 1 – We had snow again this week. Not as much as a few weeks ago! It is pretty. I walk around without a phone or camera so don’t get many snow photos, but I did take my phone on one walk and took this: Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and shake the water off. Yes, it is pouring. And it is a cold rain. Yuck. But I will get you a steaming hot mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, hot cocoa or other warm beverage. Funny, though, most of our snow is gone! I have deep, deep piles on my back patio (it is always like freezer back there) and there are large parking lot piles and some in the open areas, but much more has melted in our warm rain earlier this week than I could have imagined when shoveling! Where are we? That photo at the top was taken in New Hampshire.
This was a very busy week at work. Very busy.
I spent a lot of time this week winterizing the house. Yes, very, very late! Every year I have to put plastic up over my windows. I once did a post about it. I was very far behind this year, but did quite a few this week. I have quite a few more to do. Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea, hot cocoa or other warm beverage. Watch the ice! Enough snow for you? Here you go. Oh, where are we? Some of you may know by the photo at the top that we are in snow New Hampshire.
I didn’t have a coffee share last weekend because I was traveling back from Northern Maine. I did a post about Maine if you want to know more. It was visiting in-laws. We had six inches or so of snow on Thanksgiving morning, so I shoveled around the cars and such before the plow truck came. It is beautiful up there, and the snow made it even prettier!

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a mug of very strong Dark Roast (my personal blend ;) ), a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is still a bit cold, but will warm up a little today. Right now it is sunny and beautiful! We did have a cold and windy week. In my state we saw down to -17 F with winds over 100 mph! Of course that was the top of Mt. Washington. It only felt that cold and windy here ;) Where are we? I gave it away, but for those who didn’t guess or don’t know the photo at the top, I am in New Hampshire today.
This week I tried to stay warm ;) I worked. I played with the dogs, as always. I took long walks. I read. I wrote. I finished my studio reorg and played some music. Last night I started to work on my first piece of new music in the “new” studio :) I ran and exercised. I went to Lions Club. We had a guest who talked about her 11 years in Kenya, which was interesting. I have several African friends on the blog, but nobody from that part of the continent. Continue reading →
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! Continue reading →
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a very warm dark roast, a cuppa tea or other warm beverage. It is a little chilly out there, but a beautiful day otherwise. The wind has finally died down, it is sunny, and just a great day. Where is this amazing, if cool, weather happening? Some of you may recognize that bit of Edward Gorey fashion (nice for post Halloween) as being on Cape Cod (and yes, I have drank my coffee from this cup the last few days).
Work was busy. Enough said ;)
Last Saturday was our Lions Club Penny Sale. I wrote about it for my Smile. I went to an outside party on Sunday. It was a gorgeous location and poured rain the entire time. And it was cold. I drove here Tuesday evening. My birthday was Thursday. Friday I had an electrician in to do a little more work – there is still a ton to do, but I have my car charger and there is now a washer and dryer outlet! Plus a small repair in the kitchen, so I am happy. Continue reading →
