I hope you got my reference to Keeping Up Appearances!
It feels really good to finally have some time to relax after a hectic yet exciting two weeks. I can’t figure out how to make the summer seem like it’s lasting longer than it does. There’s so much to experience and enjoy, but when I do that the more quickly it flies by. I know I’m not alone with this, right?! Savoring it all and sharing it here on my blog with you feels like a good practice. So, I have good news to share about out tomatoes after a harrowing beginning during a very cold and wet spring.

During the golden hour on Sunday evening, after a memorable day in Kennebunkport and Cape Neddick followed by lobster, Wayne and I took a walk on Ferry Beach. Continue reading “Eternity”
After church yesterday Wayne and I went to Rising Tide for celebratory lobster to celebrate my 23 years of sobriety. We thought we were playing it smart by going between lunch and dinner so that we’d be able to get a table in a reasonable period of time (or a table at all!), but we almost had to turn around!

I just returned from the new nature preserve courtesy of Scarborough Land Trust that’s only a few miles from my house. It’s a little fairyland with a big sky! The air smelled like wildflowers, birds were everywhere and it was ours (me, the birds, groundhogs, chipmunks, butterflies, humming bees and things rustling in the leaves as I walked past) alone for the duration of my walk! I have driven past this field for years but now it’s open to the public to enjoy. Continue reading “Pleasant Hill Preserve, Scarborough, Maine”
Summer really is here here and Ferry Beach, only minutes from my house, is my favorite place to enjoy a warm evening. After work, Wayne and I had headed over for a sunset picnic. Continue reading “Summer Solstice Sunset Picnic at Ferry Beach, Scarborough”
After weeks of rain and below-normal temps our tomatoes looked sad and barely grew. Then they began to turn yellow and we wondered if we were going to lose them. But then this past weekend the cold, rainy spell ended! They are now standing taller and things are looking up! Continue reading “Our Garden is Recovering from the Incessant Rain!”
Good morning! I’ve been sick with a cold this past week, and have family visiting this weekend, so there wasn’t much time for blogging.
I just finished reading an opinion piece in the New York Times about the “hidden” problems of tiny home living. Those described were, in my opinion, silly and easily mitigated. Continue reading ““What No One Ever Tells You About Tiny Homes””
