The Week In Seven Photos

A new day with thoughts of the wonderful pumpkin cheesecake pie with bruleed meringue leaves that the backyard gang enjoyed while I wondered on another Thanksgiving day why the turkey dinner at the bakery always looks more delicious than mine.

Oh how things can change in a week, many trees are now bare as the leaves have continued to fall amidst the snowflakes, the turkeys have returned from their summer holidays to huddle and shiver all winter in our woods after months without even a gobble, gobble, and a blast of arctic air from Canada has arrived…

Weekend Musings

One of those weekends where you find yourself closing your eyes and shaking your head at the blustery winds and rain, frost on the pumpkin and some of your teams failing to show up at game time. Harper was thrilled with the weekend conditions though since it meant we could stay indoors in our favorite…

There was a moment this week when I wasn’t sure how this weekly series would unfold and I briefly wished “enjoyment” wasn’t part of the blog title (it would have been so much easier just to rant a little).  Luckily an afternoon out with Harper and the camera came to the rescue and I was…

The realization that the wise days of middle age have arrived is when you spot a bad idea and you quickly bypass a youthful thought of “the best memories come from bad ideas” to the awareness that you wish all the bad ideas you encountered in life had shown up with a warning label. There…

Curiosity Voyage

I am on a curiosity voyage, and I need my paddles to travel.  These books…these books are my paddles. Dustin (Stranger Things)

My word of the week (possibly word of the month and year too) is lollygag, which originally popped into my head during the exciting (other than no Bryce Harper) Major League Baseball All-Star week and the funny lollygag scene from the great baseball movie Bull Durham starring Kevin Costner (a close third behind baseball favorites Field of Dreams…
