My blog anniversary

Wow, this almost got past me.  It's my blogaversary! Can you believe it?  It's been 3 years since my first post.  My very first post was about Oscar. He was just a stray cat I was feeding back then. Of course, now he's my happy middle child and I feel so lucky to have found him.

Looking over the past year's posts all I can say is ugh! Boring! Where did the fun go? And the humor?  Gone!

You know, blogging is tough. It's really hard to come up with fresh material every week or twice a week.  I really can't imagine posting every day. But some bloggers do and they always keep it interesting.  I wish I could do that but I can't.

I would like to post every other day but sometimes life gets in the way.  Some days I am posting very late in the evening and I wonder if my words even make sense. 

I think I would like to get back to telling stories of things that happen in my life and to bringing my camera with me everywhere. Those spontaneous shots are always the best.

So here's to 3 years of blogging and the promise of a more interesting blog in the coming year. I'm celebrating with a cup of tea.


Happy Blogversary! I'll be coming up on a year in July! It's been so nice meeting all these lovely men and women from all parts of the world!

Cheers to you and many more posts!

Congratulations on 3 years of blog posts. It is hard to come up with posts several times a week but as long as it's still fun it's worth the effort.
My blog is almost 4 years old and I just did my 500th post... who knew when I started I'd even have 50. :)

Hi Elaine
Happy Blog anniversary!!! I always love your day trip posts and shots.. and of course the adventure of the kitties!!

You know I often think I've lost my sense of humour in blogging.. don't know where it went.. maybe it's just reflecting life at present.. or maybe the 2-3 year blogging phase is the no sense of humour phase. hahaha [for me anyway]..

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for all your posts you share and beautiful shots of places you visit.. ciao xxx Julie

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 …
