Flowers And Movies

I’ve watched an interesting variety of movies over the last week (you can watch the trailers if you click on the movie title) and I’m surprised that the ones I would recommend were the horror and French films.  I loved watching the mother and daughter roles played out wonderfully by Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche in The…

Monday Musings

Love those peaceful days that begin with coffee and banana bread on the deck followed by enjoying a snack or two throughout the day surrounded by birds, flowers blooming, bunnies, Harper monitoring the snacks and the day ending with the most fabulous rare visitor stopping by to say goodnight.

As I wander through the slow flying days thinking they’ve added an extra Thursday to the week,  somehow I’m a little surprised that the July 4th holiday has arrived.  My timing is definitely off since I actually tried to go out a few weeks ago to buy a few summer outdoor items to only discover that…

I saw an article the other day on how the quarantine has strengthened the marriage of Kevin Costner and while watching the new season of Yellowstone, there may have been a brief thought about being trapped in a house with Kevin Costner for five months, but then that was quickly replaced by the question of…

My love of photography, cinema and peaceful walks were brought together this week when I had the chance to wander through a few of the 20 beautiful gardens that surround the Cranbrook House, capture photos using the cinematic feature on the Hipstamatic app and later in the day enjoy another “horticultural escape” through the beautiful…

Some days I’m not sure what I know, but this week I definitely know how wonderful it was to enjoy a Starbucks white chocolate mocha once again. I’m not sure how I’ve lived all these years without knowing how much I like olive loaf and that it’s possible to learn new things while grocery shopping.…

Birds And Books

It was backyard birdwatching this weekend with a Pelee Island Winery Pinot Noir and the rare red-winged blackbird visitor did stop by along with the blue jays, cardinals and mourning doves. It is becoming more difficult to photograph birds in the backyard as Harper is currently intent on making sure Baby Yoda and her have…

Harper is slowly taking control of the backyard and introducing herself to all our backyard visitors.  This week for the first time she scared a deer off into the woods and luckily she is on a long leash or she would have been right on her heels. I think having Baby Yoda as a new sidekick…
