Unusual hobbies

January 11, 2023


Hobbies are fun. They can take us away from everyday life. Mr. Ken has recently taken up metal detecting. I’m glad he has something to take him out of the house and away from donut eating. 🙂 When I picture metal detecting, I picture an old guy in white socks, walking along the beach. Thankfully, […]

Happy, happy New Year!

January 4, 2023


The new year is a time for new beginnings. And a time for making resolutions. As for me, I used to dutifully write down my resolutions. They were quickly forgotten by mid-January. So now I do something different. I focus on a particular word for the year. In the past it has been words like […]

Merry, merry Christmas!

December 28, 2022


I love the Christmas season. The lights and decorations are so pretty. I especially love putting up our Christmas tree. All of our ornaments have a story behind them. The Ken and Nancy snowmen were bought in Weston, Vermont, during one of our many trips to Vermont. The Santa in a kayak,on the upper left, […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

December 21, 2022


The tree has been put up, the Christmas cards written and the Christmas meal planned. Now it is time to relax and enjoy the season. It is just so nice and relaxing to sit in our family room on these cold, dark nights and look at the pretty Christmas tree. Mr. Ken also has the […]

The Royals visit Boston

December 14, 2022


As most of you know, the royals, William and Kate, were here in Boston a week ago. Our Guys have been very excited about this! Sir Oliver was beside himself when he saw this photo in the Globe showing an 8-year-old boy, dressed like a palace guard, presenting William and Kate with flowers! Have you […]

The joys of a November hike

December 7, 2022


September and October are glorious times here in New England. The brightly colored foliage never disappoints. November, not so much. All the leaves are off the trees and it is usually cold and grey, with not much sunshine. This year we were lucky to have several sunny days. Mr. Ken and I decided to take […]

Too much time on my hands

November 30, 2022


So the Covid lockdowns have eased and even I have been getting out of the house more. That being said, I still don’t get out enough. The other day, I went into a closet to get a coffee pod for my morning coffee. I am still half asleep. As I am gazing into the cardboard […]

Happy Thanksgiving from the gang

November 23, 2022


Our guys, Sir Oliver, Toby and Sir Angus, wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! And something to make you smile. Mr. Ken and Sir Angus seem to have identical taste in clothes. I call them my doppelgangers! 🙂 I just love this time of year. I take lots of time to slow down and reflect […]

Let’s talk about souvenirs

November 16, 2022


I love having momentos of our trips; they don’t have to be anything fancy. This time in Vermont I got some good ones. The beautiful wood bowl was handmade by a 95 year old man from New Hampshire. We picked up this gem at the Chester Fall Festival. The pretty tea ball with a dragon […]

Eating our way through Vermont

November 9, 2022


Sure, we had an active vacation here in Vermont, but we also enjoyed some yummy food. Um, we may have enjoyed a LOT of ice cream. It was made here in Vermont and just went down so easily. The first quart was our old favorite, salted caramel truffle. We then branched out to try, Wilson’s […]
