Monday Musings

There are many simple things along the way in life that one can develop strong opinions about, like not being a big fan of seafood after a bad reaction to my first seafood dinner, but then discover how quickly opinions can change after one fabulous lobster roll has you constantly thinking about placing your next…

The Week In Seven Photos

The month of July usually begins with me having the wonderful excuse to hide indoors from the heat watching the Tour de France and baseball, but as nothing is normal, I spent some time outdoors in the morning watching the blue jays have to air out their wings by 9:00 a.m. We’re still hoping to…

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…

My favorite weather of blue skies and 60 degrees arrived this weekend and encouraged me to take my first bike ride of the season and make the reacquaintance of a few muscles I haven’t noticed in awhile.  The dog basket remained empty as Harper has let me know that her paws are made for walkin’…

The Week In Seven Photos

After three years of “The Week In Seven Photos” series, maybe it’s time to switch things up and create a weekly “Welcome To My Rant” series.  It was nice this week to not be the only one floating in the middle of the lake ranting about the state of the world or how crowded the…

Monday Musings

With the easing of restrictions across the country coinciding with the holiday weekend, there was a sense on the news that many were on the move again.  There were lines for restaurants and bars, the campgrounds and beaches were full in many places and groups showed up at the park with their coolers and fishing…
