  • I heard the church bells from afar
    on Apr 17, 2016
    It's a beautiful spring day here in Maryland and I've spent most of it outside working on the area at the back side of the house. One of the bushes was damaged in a snowstorm and needed serious cutting back. There's also mulching going on and I just...
  • To better days
    on Feb 14, 2016
    It has been so long since I've last posted and I thank those of you who have sent me kind notes inquiring as to how I'm doing - maybe a little worried because you hadn't heard from me. I am fine and that was very nice of you. I figure if I post about...
  • January images
    on Jan 18, 2016
    Greetings from Maryland on a cold Monday in January. Winter has finally arrived and yesterday, we even had a little snow. I've got the day off and was up early this morning, making coffee and then packing my bags to come home. I stayed a couple of ni...
  • Christmas in Florida
    on Jan 1, 2016
    Hello, friends. I’m still here although my visits have been sporadic this past year. Happy New Year, by the way! I hope the year brings more good than bad to everyone. I spent the week over Christmas visiting my husband’s folks in Florida alon...
  • Photos in November
    on Nov 25, 2015
    Hold onto your hats folks, because I’m posting twice in the space of a week. Believe me, I’m just as surprised as you are, but the fact is that I’ve been taking pictures again lately and wanted to share some of them with you. It’s the mornin...
  • Nothing gold can stay
    on Nov 21, 2015
    It’s been over a month since I’ve posted here and all I can say is that all is well, all is quiet, all is calm. Well, it usually is, anyway. And it’s been a beautiful autumn. I have been doing much and my weekends are full. In fact, in a couple...
  • Am I in heaven here or . . .
    on Oct 18, 2015
    Greetings from Maryland on a crisp, chilly October day. As I write this, the clouds have moved in so rather than take my Kindle outside to read a bit, I decided to stay in and actually write a post . . . something that’s been long overdue. Because...
  • Hello it’s me
    on Sep 13, 2015
    It’s been a decent weekend and today’s weather has been fairly glorious. I woke to chilly temperatures, enough to warrant a light jacket while enjoying my coffee outside on the patio. I took my time waking up, knowing that come tomorrow, it’s b...
  • A walk in the park
    on Sep 6, 2015
    Today I took George for a walk in Battery Park, which lies along the Delaware River in Olde Town New Castle, DE. It’s about a half hour drive from my home and it was 72 degrees and gorgeous. I’d never been to this colonial coastal village before...
  • For my sisters (and everyone, really)
    on Sep 1, 2015
    I’m sure I’ve mentioned in the past that my three sisters and I write to each other on a regular basis. This is done via group e-mails and has been going on since our mother passed away in 2006. We have always been close, but it was her death tha...
  • Pictures from my new phone
    on Aug 1, 2015
    It has been too long. Yes, I know this. But I have been wanting to write and to share my photos with you and I believe it’s high time I did. July is not my favorite month, but August is worse. I am not a summer person – the heat wilts me but I am...
  • Long weekend
    on Jul 5, 2015
    It’s been a quiet weekend here at the old manor house on the hill. I was invited to a couple of 4th of July parties but I really just wanted to stay home, although I made a couple of salads to take just in case I changed my mind. Now I have plenty...
  • Home again
    on Jun 27, 2015
    I ended up not taking my laptop up to Maine with me this year. I knew that if I took it, I would be buried in it, editing photos or wasting time online and not spending time with my friends. So I left it home, posted once or twice on Facebook while I...
  • Wake up mama, turn your lamp down low
    on Jun 16, 2015
    I just finished reading The Scottish Prisoner and was wondering why on earth I was so melancholy. And then I realized that it was because the book was finished and I hadn’t wanted it to end. Earlier this year, I discovered the Outlander series by D...
  • Hello yet again
    on May 30, 2015
    I am having a huge issue with Blogger vs. Windows Live Writer. From what I've been able to discover, it's a Microsoft issue and Twitter blew up over it just a few days ago. Until I get it figured it, I'm trying to post directly through Blogger, somet...
  • Hello again
    on May 30, 2015
    I have just written an entire new post using the program I have always used for this blog called Windows Live Writer. Perhaps because I've not posted in so long, my account went stale. I don't freaking now. What I do know is that I've spent a good tw...
  • Another week on the hill
    on Apr 27, 2015
    Oh, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? It’s chilly here in Maryland as I write on this Monday evening while watching the news. The local news has been on an extended version due to the looting and rioting going on in Baltimore. It is disgusting and I...
  • I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    on Apr 14, 2015
    I am not here to tell you my sins. I often use song lyrics as post titles and this one comes from a tune I heard last week over Spring Break. It’s by Hozier, called Take Me to Church. I was driving around in NJ with a girlfriend, listening to a sta...
  • Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
    on Mar 22, 2015
    Oh my gosh, it’s been so long since I’ve posted. And for that, I apologize. I could give you some excuse of my being overly busy, but it wouldn’t be true. No truer than it always is. I just haven’t had much to say. Although this has never sto...
  • Clad with radiance are the woods
    on Mar 5, 2015
