Pretty in Pink Saturday

It's Pink Saturday and today's post is designed to create the illusion of coolness. This post is for all of you who are suffering from extreme high temperatures and unbearable humidity in your part of the country.

This sweet pooch is pretty in pink. Her family left her outside a Starbucks while they ran in for a hot drink. Windblown is a good look on her, don't you think?

I watched her through the window as I drank my hot chocolate on a snowy Sunday afternoon in January.

I couldn't resist her charms so I went outside to play with her. She promptly snubbed me. Yep, she started barking and growling at me! So I took one more photograph of her and then
her family came to fetch her. And I went back into Starbucks, just happy to have photos filed away for a future Pink Saturday post on a lazy Summer's day.

Thanks to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting this event. Click on the Pink Saturday button on the sidebar to see other Pink Saturday participants.

How precious is this? Happy Pink Saturday honey. Living in Phoenix, I could use a little bit of snow country right now. I think all of us could. Hasn't it been a hot summer everywhere? Thanks for sharing this precious little face. I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you post next. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you follow my blog as well. Country hugs, Sherry

What a cutie in her pink coat! Happy Pink Saturday!
Oh, what a cutie!! Great that you had your camera in hand!! And brave of you to try to play with her (in all her pinkness!).

I really do love your blog, Elaine (?) but wonder why you haven't stopped by... I only mean this in the spirit of friendship! :-)

Cold, dark, raining all week. Summer is not going to make it to northern Michigan this year. We haven't seen many days over 70! WOWZA! So, with that in mind, Pink Saturday is especially important for me. I sit back and cruise around the blogs filling myself to the brim with my favorite color.

Some dogs just don't have good taste. My Golden would have wriggled all over the place making friends.

♥Thanks so much for adding a bit of sunshine to my day♥

Maybe she was just in a bad mood because they were inside all snuggy and warm while she was left out in the snow. Cute little pup!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Thank you so much for your rescue in prayers. I still have not heard anything from my sister. I must remain strong that no word is a good thing. They are still working with her. I know someone will call when they know something. I will remain awake until then. Again thank you for your prayers. They are so important to me. Love, Sherry

Awww aren't dogs supposed to wear little booties in the snow!? Who left their dog in the snow? Harrumph lol.

All the best,

Have a great week!

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 …
