pumpkin patch

Nothing too deep this week; I’ve spent most of my time enjoying our glorious fall days. Fall is my favorite time in New England. A big part of the fall tradition is the pumpkin displays at our local church. Enjoy! What are your favorite fall activities?

Time for a new hobby

more crystals

Sometimes I think this COVID thing will last forever. It certainly seems that way. Here is a typical day for me: Went for a walk. Ate a donut (in place of my usual whole wheat toast and organic peanut butter). Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. Called to thank my friend Lisa, who had […]

Sir Oliver and Sir Angus and Dairy Queen

It was time for another road trip this weekend. And where else would we go but to our favorite Dairy Queen to get a Blizzard treat. This time we brought the “guys” with us, Sir Oliver and Sir Angus. As you can see they enjoyed the Blizzard too. We got our favorite, cappuccino heath bar […]

Sir Oliver and Sir Angus with corn

These days, it is the little things that make my day. For one, it is fresh corn from our local farmstand. It can’t get much fresher than this; they pick it every morning and bring it to the farm stand. Not to be forgotten, but we even have little corn ears for Sir Oliver and […]

Sir Oliver Day

With the continuing barrage of bad news these days, we must find reasons to celebrate. For us, we just finished celebrating Sir Oliver Day. It was a year ago on September 4, when we “adopted” Sir Oliver from the Buckingham Palace Gift Shop (that’s in London, in case you all didn’t know). So we had […]

morning coffee

These days, it really is the little things that mean the most. I try to find something to look forward to every day. These days it is: 1. My morning coffee. I just have one mug, with real cream. It is such a treat and looking forward to this makes it easier to get up […]

A mini road trip!

road trip

Our world seems to be shrinking by the day. Now that Rhode Island is a newly re-emerging COVID hotspot, we will not be taking any trips there to visit my cousin. What is left? Trips to the grocery store, trips to Costco and what else? When all else fails, there is always Dairy Queen. It […]
