Happy Sir Oliver Day!

September 7, 2022


On September 4, three years ago in 2019, we were in London touring Buckingham Palace. After the tour we visited their gift shop and that’s where we found our dear Sir Oliver and knew immediately he had to join our family. So today we celebrate Sir Oliver Day with cake and a balloon! Of course, […]

A view from a country road – 2

August 31, 2022


Here is Part 2 of my country road walk. Not only is the walk scenic, but it has a few hills, so I am getting my aerobic workout in. Here are some of the views from the top. I especially love seeing the mountains in the background. I was so excited about this view and […]

A view from a country road

August 24, 2022


As you can probably tell from my prior blog posts, I love Vermont! One of my favorite things is to walk in nature. We were very fortunate that the place we stayed was right on a country road. There wasn’t much traffic so it was perfect for walking. And so many pretty sights, which I […]

For the love of chocolate

August 17, 2022


Vermont is known for its beautiful hiking trails. Mr. Ken and I wanted to take advantage of this. So we found nice trail called Butternut Hill Loop in Chester Vermont. The directions to get there were straightforward. We turn off from the main road, ever on the lookout for the trail sign. Um, well we […]

Guilty pleasures in Vermont

August 10, 2022


So Vermont is known for all of its outdoor activities. It is so easy to be active and enjoy the outdoors up there. That being said, we also enjoyed the food. We had delicious, freshly picked corn. Our guilty pleasure was Gifford’s Sea Salt Caramel Truffle. Yum and yum! We went through two quarts in […]

Quirky time

The top of a beautiful mountain range that is. So Mr. Ken and I are back in Vermont. The first day of our vacation, we decided to take a hike at the Owl’s Head Trailhead in Dorset, Vermont. This trail takes you up to the Gettysburg Quarry, where marble blocks were cut for gravestones for […]

The latest adventure of our guys

Our little guys, Sir Angus, Toby and Sir Oliver, provide us with lots of smiles. Here they are in their latest adventure. Mr. Ken bought a new birdbath since our old one was cracked. The guys took one look at it and decided it is perfect for a swimming pool so in they jumped! What […]

I just love summer celebrations and I especially love the 4th of July. I was out doing errands the other day and came across this interesting sight. This inspiring field of flags was recently put up near a local playground. This is why I love going for walks; you never know what interesting and unexpected […]

Reasons to get up in the morning

June 29, 2022


I look forward to every day. And this isn’t because I have a big purpose in my life, it is because of the simple joys I feel every morning. What I love about my mornings: Coffee! We bought these pretty mugs as souvenirs on last year’s trip to Vermont. Every time I use one, I […]
