I love a pumpkin spice latte and a cozy sweater the much as the next person. I love a crisp fall day with yellow leaves crunching underfoot, I love inky skies with bright stars, but I have to admit, I absolutely love summer. Summer, and all it brings. In summertime the air is soft, leaves … Continue reading Summertime, And The Living Is Easy…
This is our second summer in our new house. Last year we put in a lot of work on the garden: We tore out some sod and created two flower spaces, or "Pocket Gardens"... one I call "The Woodland Garden," and the other is "The Cottage Garden."

I have a new swimsuit with a detachable skirt … Continue reading Flight or Fight?
We moved last week. We moved from a lovely house on the hill, a cabin really that overlooked a busy harbor. A working harbor. We moved to a house out of town, on the water. A bigger lot, not so close to neighbors. Lots of trees and privacy. It is quiet here. And dark at … Continue reading A Different Kind Of Morning
The prompt is damp. Damp is not a pleasant word and I am having such a pleasant morning! (And yeah, Fandango... I tried, I cannot make beard work...I tried talking about rain in someone's beard, but that felt weird for some reason...LOL) But here goes.... It stormed and rained and blew yesterday. It was so … Continue reading Another Weather Post….
The official countdown is on. In one week we will be sleeping in our new home. It is exciting and frightening at the same time. I have not slept the last three nights, thoughts such as "Should we plaster and touch up all the nail holes?" To "Did I make arrangements for the dog during … Continue reading For a Good Nights Sleep
