Some cuteness to brighten your day

November 18, 2020

The news just keeps getting more and more depressing. Between the election and the COVID, there doesn’t seem to be any good news. So, this week, I thought I would focus on something to make you all smile. We all need to smile more these days. As most of you know, Mr. Ken and I […]

Rethinking gratitude

November 11, 2020

5

It is a stressful time for all of us these days. I try really hard to focus on the positive. Part of my morning practice is to focus on what I am grateful for. It can be something as simple as the sun shining or that I had a good night’s sleep. It is hard […]

Time for Dairy Queen!

September 30, 2020

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 […]

Yum, fresh corn

September 23, 2020

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 […]

Random thoughts while kayaking

September 16, 2020

Kayaking is my “happy place” these days. When we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. We were out the other day and even though it was a cloudy, cool day, it was still good. There was some sunshine in the distance so I was going to write a deep, serious blog post […]

Happy Sir Oliver Day!

September 9, 2020

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 […]

What do you look forward to?

September 2, 2020

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!

August 26, 2020

Comments Off on A mini 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 […]

Ah – coffee!

August 19, 2020

With all this shelter at home, I’ve learned to slow down and appreciate the small things. As for slowing down, one is “forced” to do this since there is nowhere to go. I am a morning person and definitely need coffee to get me going first thing. Mr. Ken and I had our moment of […]

More of what happens when you are stuck at home

August 12, 2020

Ack, will this virus thing ever end? It doesn’t seem so, here in the good old U.S.A. Here is more stuff that happens when one is stuck at home for months on end. 1. Trips to Costco. In the good old days, our trips to Costco were quite easy and simple. A few minutes before […]
