And the day begins

Hi everyone,

We should have a day in the low 70s but without much sun. At this hour I look out at mostly shades of blue and gray.

I start the fire to take away the early chill. I’ll only leave it on for a few minutes, but it feels good now. The hot coffee helps too.

I wish you all a good day.

No commitments this week

Hi everyone,

This should be a quiet week. On the trip down here last week I had the inkling of a picture book idea. Not sure about it yet but I’ll have time in the next few days to give it more thought. One never knows…

In the meantime, some pretty serious afternoon goo foffing is in progress. That includes naps and mild gym workouts. JEFF and his pup Petey have joined us to help.

Adjusting as we go

Hi everyone,

So here we are. We left Springfield on Monday morning headed to Dallas to change planes for a connection to Fort Walton and the one hour drive to the condo, scheduled to arrive at 3:00 p.m.

From Dallas we reached Fort Walton but couldn’t land because of poor visibility and were diverted to Charlotte, N.C. We eventually got to bed in a hotel at 3:00 a.m. CT.

Up at 9:30, missed breakfast beyond one cup of coffee and an unheated muffin. Off to the airport and wings up, after being stalled on the tarmac for more than half an hour, at 1:00 or so and touched down at Fort Walton by mid-afternoon. We drove our rental car to the condo and walked in slightly more than twenty-four hours after we had expected to.

I worked yesterday morning and kept my Zoom date with kids at Pirates Read through Parkview University in Missouri. This morning we’ll take Jeff back to the airport so he can catch a flight to Las Vegas to hook up with friends for a few days. We keep Petey the dog with us.

So far the goo foffing is not living up to expectations! But we’re here, that’s not at all a bad thing.

And the goo foffing goes on

Hi everyone,

Today ends two weeks without a meeting or a single phone call that required my attention. Good weather, much of it beautiful, some time on the beach or by the pool. Work has gone smoothly. Agreements have been reached for the manuscript due in February so I’m ready to start writing that sometime soon. Not much more I could wish for. I know my blog posts are mostly boring when I’m goo foffing. Sometimes I just don’t have much news.
