I found some great treasures at a rummage sale Saturday morning, had a wonderful surprise for Mother’s Day and enjoyed a beautiful day with Wayne and the “kids.”
Yesterday Wayne and I took a drive to visit the Monastery in Kennebunk, St. Ann’s (summer) Episcopal church and made a brief stop at Antiques USA in Arundel on the way home. It felt like the official marker of “We made it through winter!” THIS is why we live in Maine:
It was another beautiful afternoon with highs reaching the upper 60s!
It’s a beautiful day! I took a walk downtown and here are some of the sights.
“They” were talking about temps reaching close to 70 degrees today! I had high hopes of a Ferry Beach picnic in February. This morning I made a salad with iceberg (I know it’s the Wonder Bread of lettuces but sometimes I crave it), berries and English Seaside cheddar. I envisioned sitting on a towel on the warm sand enjoying my little picnic in the middle of winter, kooky as it may be. It didn’t come to fruition though, since the temps barely reached fifty degrees by the water with a healthy breeze blowing. However, I still was able to enjoy a lovely walk.
Imagine finding a store that manufactures ALL of its own clothing right here in the USA. It would seem like a dream. It did to me only a few days ago. Now, imagine if that same store made their clothing in your home state. But we’re not done. What would you say if I told you that the clothing is made RIGHT IN THE STORE?! That’s exactly what opened shop in the Old Port this past November!
One year ago today Wayne and I visited St. Anthony’s Franciscan Monastery despite the frigid temps. It’s open to the public year-round. Here are some of the beautiful sights:
Yesterday afternoon on his day off Wayne and I decided to drive to Kennebunkport to see our beloved St. Ann’s Episcopal Church before stopping at the antique shops in Arundel on the way back. I wasn’t prepared for the heartbreaking news that was to follow.
Here’s a bright and beautiful view for January! On the backside:
Presently it’s pouring rain and almost fifty degrees. By tonight it will only be five! Here’s a scene from sometime in the early 1970s to help bring forth some sunny summer warmth into today. On the backside of the postcard:
