I know I'll be watching my mailbox

According to CBS News, 1800 invitations to the Royal Wedding have been mailed to the lucky recipients. Depending on who you are, you may receive one, two, or three invitations.

The first invitation is to the church ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the second to the Queen's reception and the third invite is to Prince Charles's evening reception. Only 300 invitations were sent for the third party.

So I am renewing my passport and anxiously watching my mailbox! How about you? How will you prepare for the Royal Wedding?


It starts at 11:00 am in England so I figure that is about 9:00 pm here. It will be a late night for me catching it on TV. I HAVE to see it!

I hope they televise Prince Charles reception, there is supposed to be dancing! ;-D

Wonder if we could show up anyhow

My hope is that the press won't haunt Kate's every move like they did with Diana. What a shame that she cannot be here to watch her son get married. Truly a life cut to short. My hope is that William and Kate have a good life together.

Let us know if you get that invite, Elaine!
I think I'll start by shopping for a hat! I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for my invitation. I wish them all the best!

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 …
