If We Were Having Coffee on the 7th of December, 2019

coffee-in-the-snow

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!

Coffee in NH with Moog

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

books-n-coffee

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

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

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

fall-coffee-share-new-hampshire

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get a mug of very strong Dark Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage.  It is still cool out, but it is a beautiful day!  It has actually been a gorgeous week, with more color than we’ve seen yet this fall, and great weather.  There was a little rain, but mostly it was relatively warm with those blue skies you only see in October, where sapphires are jealous and clouds looked as if they were sculpted by Michelangelo. Do you get the idea that I love October? ;)  And where am I loving this particular October day?  By the photo at the top some may realize that I am in New Hampshire.

Oh, here is a photo from my kitchen window for this week. Continue reading

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is still very cool out, but it looks to be a beautiful autumn day. Where are we?  The photo at the top is newish, but you may know that rock wall as being in New Hampshire. And we have color at last!  Here is a phone picture I just took from my kitchen window.

fall-coffee-share-new-hampshire

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a little cool today and damp. Not raining, just wet. The photo at the top was taken just 5 minutes ago. Can you see how damp it is? Even though the photo is new, some of you may know that the stone wall is in New Hampshire, though I will be heading to Cape Cod this evening, so if you hit the share later, it will be down there.

It was a busy week. Work was very busy.

I finished what I consider the 2nd draft of The Old Mill.  I’ve been going back and rewriting small sections instead of my normal practice of letting it sit for a while.  Oh well, perhaps I can leave it alone this week…

Yesterday I found a nasty tick bite. I got a doctor’s appointment for 4:45. I left early, since, well, Friday rush hour… On a good day it is 40 minutes and in a non-snow situation as long as an hour (I’ve had a three hour drive in the snow….). I gave myself an hour. It took me 27 minutes. OK, I took a walk in Mine Falls Park in Nashua. It was pretty nice, and there were was a little color. Continue reading

Coffee on Cape Cod

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast (this week it is heavy on Italian Roast…), a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is sunny and beautiful outside, but a little chilly and windy. Not as windy as yesterday (sustained winds of over 20 mph/32 kph), but still noticeable. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being on Cape Cod, though it is the summer photo and I may need to switch back to winter mode soon!

It has been warmer than usual up until Thursday. Thursday the temperatures plunged to slightly below normal. The forecast had a cold week ahead, but it has changed so it will be closer to average for this time of year. Hopefully we will get some fall colors to go with the fall temperatures! Continue reading

Coffee Share new Hampshire in the Summer

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice, very strong, dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. We can sit outside and enjoy the cool, but beautiful weather as we look up into the woods behind my house. It is supposed to get quite warm (for late September) today.Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize this photo as being from New Hampshire.

It was a busy week at work. A lot is going on , as usual.

It was a warm week and I did get out a bit, though, of course, I worked. But I went running at least three day this week and walked the dogs every day, and played with the dogs, running like a lunatic up and down the wooded hill behind the house as I followed along with their games. Besides running, I also did my usual weight training exercises. Continue reading

Coffee Share new Hampshire in the Summer

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of some very strong Dark Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a beautiful day here and we might want to go out back and sit on the patio. Where are we, you are asking? Some may recognize the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.

It was a weird week. I started off on Cape Cod. It was very nice and I had a great time. Back in NH the week started off with good mid-September weather, which was great since it felt like late-September for the last few weeks. But then it got pretty cool for a few days. Brr. Now it has warmed back up to early-September temps – it will be up to 85 F/30 C for three days in a row and then stay in the 70s for over a week after that. Odd, but nice that it will be well into October before I have to turn on the heat.

Work was busy, but I think I am getting stuff done. Continue reading
