Enough with the aggressive real estate agents!

QUICK NOTE: I’m writing this week, but never fear. Mr. Ken still has a few blog posts up his sleeve, so he will be back. The housing market here in Massachusetts is hot, to say the least. There is a lot of pent up demand, but not a lot of inventory on the market. So, […]

NEWS FLASH: Mr. Ken so enjoyed writing guest blog posts, that he wanted to do another one! This one is all about the antics of one of our chipmunks, CC. Enjoy! As I’ve written about in previous blogs here, I like working on do-it-yourself (DIY) projects around our house. One project that I’ve been planning […]

I have a few more tips to help you get through shoulder surgery. Actually, these tips could apply to getting through any type of surgery. 1. Physical therapy is the key to success. I can’t emphasize this enough. When I was researching recovery from shoulder surgery, this is the one piece of advice everyone had. […]

In my last blog I wrote about some of the fun things we did at our family’s summer cottage, Hickory Lodge, in northwestern NJ. There are so many things we enjoyed while there and this blog will talk about more of them and, a little mischief we may have been part of too. One of […]

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 […]

Happy 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 […]

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!

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 […]

My attitudes sure have changed in the 5 months since the shutdown due to the Pandemic began. How many things have we all taken for granted, that now are either no longer in existence or have become big deals? Take hair cuts for instance. Now, I know in the grand scheme of things, getting one’s […]
