If We Were Having Coffee on the 16th of February, 2019

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in and I’ll get you a nice mug of very strong French/Sumatra Roast blend, a cuppa tea or other beverage.  Actually, it is approaching lunch time, so something else may be in order.  It is a sunny day and beginning to warm up. And where are we?  Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.

This is one of those weeks that I have a hard time coming up with things that I did.  We had a winter storm and so I spent some time on Wednesday shoveling wet, heavy snow.  I also had a haircut on Wednesday and drove to the Cape in the evening.  I did some writing, but for the most time, after finishing the drafting work of the two novellas and finishing writing the serial story I’ve been posting these last few weeks, I have been uninspired.  Or maybe it is just tired since I haven’t slept well.

I have done a little bit of preliminary stuff on the new house.  Not a lot, but we have to start some place. Continue reading

If We Were Having Coffee on the 9th of February, 2019

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in and I’ll get you a nice hot mug of a very strong French Roast/Sumatra Roast blend! Or how about a cuppa tea or hot cocoa? It is cold and the wind is awful.  Not as bad as last night – I thought the house was going to come down!  And where are we this weekend?  Some my recognize this picture (though relatively new) as being in New Hampshire.

A big part of this week was about (warning, adult content) paying bills and doing banking and finance stuff. Cleaning up around the house (old one in NH). Taking responsibility and those types of things. (Adult content for mature audiences over ;) )

The weather has been very strange, as it has everywhere.  Most of the week was far above normal, but we had an ice storm. And today is cold, if sunny, and won’t get above freezing.  I mean, it is winter in NH, despite the fact that the ground is bare!  I often have several feet on the ground this time of year (over a meter).

If We Were Having Coffee on the 2nd of February, 2019

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in.  It is still a little chilly out there, but much warmer than it was earlier today!  It was down right frigid. So I can get you a mug of strong coffee, a cuppa tea or other warm beverage. It is sunny, windy and still just a bit below freezing.  And where are we?  Some of you may know that the Beatles’ mug collection is on Cape Cod.

A few quick things – yes, we had a bit of “Polar Vortex” here, but it wasn’t as bad as in New Hampshire, which wasn’t as bad as Chicago.  Frigid, but livable. First thing Thursday, when it was just a smidge above 0 F, I took this photo, asking if i should go kayaking (too windy ;) ) Continue reading

If We Were Having Coffee on the 29th of December, 2018

Hello and Welcome!  Come on in and I’ll get you a nice mug of very strong French Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage.  It is actually pretty warm out there, if still a bit damp from yesterday’s rain.  But the sun is out and it will be a beautiful day!  And where are we?  Some of you may recognize that pyramid of Beatles mugs as being on Cape Cod.

I was off work all week.  It was pretty relaxing, which is great! but I still had a lot to do.  Well, yesterday was a wasted day.  I spent a lot of it writing, and there was a little reading, but little beyond that.  It rained.

So there was the typical stuff.  A Christmas get together last weekend.  And Christmas itself, though I always try to have a mellow holiday.  I did banking and accounting stuff and then there was the drive down here.  I spent some time on Thursday at the beach and in the woods and went running.  It was cold, but nice.
