Pink Saturday- 100 Wishes

It's midnight Eastern Standard Time so it's time for another Pink Saturday. Click on the icon on the sidebar to see other participant's posts and as always thanks to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for organizing Pink Saturday.

This week's post involves wishes. I celebrated my 1 year blog anniversary this week and I am having a giveaway. One of the items in the giveaway is this pink roll of 100 wishes. You can enter by leaving a comment on the giveaway post (the post just prior to this) and feel free to read the blog anniversary post about Oscar too.

So what are you wishing for today at the start of Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial beginning of Summer? My wish is that you have a happy, healthy, and safe holiday weekend. Until next week....


I am wishing for one day of complete happiness for every person that I know, love, run into, read about, see. Just one perfect day for everyone.

I just re-read your Anniversary Post - 'Oscar's Story' - I saw that post the other night and Oscar's little face had me all emotional! So I only now got around to commenting!
Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Happy Pink Saturday.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
