It's the end of the world as we know it

I was getting my morning coffee at a coffehouse in Melrose today and there was a long line.  A few of the women in line ahead of me were talking about the end of the world which is scheduled for tomorrow.

I joked that I hoped I wasn't having my last Mocha. This coffeehouse makes the best Mochas and they use Ghiardelli Dark Chocolate, yum!

One woman said she was going to Maine because that would be a good place to spend her last day on Earth.  Another asked if it was going to be Judgement Day for her since she is Jewish. And one of the guys said if all the dead rise up at one time it will be a Zombie World.

It was an interesting conversation with strangers and it seemed to shorten the wait for my Mocha.

So what are you doing tomorrow?


I'm in Maine! The Way Live Should Be! LOL!!! I think the banana bread I posted about will go great with the mocha you get in the morning!

I'll be at a bake-off with my nieces and nephews judging who made the best baked good. Judgement day would ruin the whole contest! LOL!!

Have a great day!

@ Ocean Breezes So if you're judging then it is judgement day for you!
I enjoyed myself today and without the end of the world looming over me. I don't understand what this end of the world was all about. Of course I didn't believe a word of it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
It was a good day as I spent a lot of time in the garden. An afternoon mocha would have really hit the spot!

A fog bank rolled in around 6 but that was about it. I also texted both my girls to tell them we loved them shortly before 6 ... just in case ; )

Yes, I heard about this end of the world, so it was a world-wide rumor:)

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 …
