A look at the Week


iPhone Friday or maybe I should call it by it’s proper name Insta Friday.  I did catch a few things on my phone. Why yes everyone has been having a sale for the holiday weekend. Some deals too good to pass up! Seriously summer weight wide leg jeans and a tank, I’m in, all I…

Something for the Weekend

I caught a recipe on a Splendid Table podcast yesterday that had me thinking of dinner but also of a great dish for the upcoming holiday weekend (I would do a link but it there isn’t one for this recipe). Very simple and after making it once I have some ideas to expand on for…

Hello Monday!


Darn it my husband got me with this, this morning! Always love complexity of something that seems simple-beautiful Did you go out to see the eclipse? The changes in the slivers of light were wonderful. I like the way the camera captured it on the right side of the sun. Elongation of the crescents was…

I Phone Friday

I haven’t done a Friday link up with Jeanette at Life Rearranged in awhile. But since I’m spending the day in bed I found time to do it. More Mother’s day pics. The kid with tan legs (she never tans so she was so tickled). Before she headed out the door I insisted on some…

Hello Monday

Linking up with Lisa Leonard for some Monday  hello’s. I really enjoyed Mother’s day and I hope everyone else did as well. My sweet faced daughter came home and surprised me with a weekend visit!

First Saturday in May

vertical julep

The Kentucky Derby has me feeling a little home sick today. Maybe I’m a little better about it with this Mint Julep in my hand, thank you kind sir for making it for me. Somewhere are beautiful silver julep cups but I have hidden them from myself very well.  This baby is made with agave…

fog 4

May is here with the fog rolling in right along with it. Fog always remind me of being little and my Mom walking me to school, she would always recite this on a foggy morning as we walked. The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches…
