I like words

At my Christmas party last year a friend said to me, "You like words, huh?" As I looked around the condo I noticed he was right.

There's Eat Drink and Be Merry gracing the dining room wall leading to the hallway.

And keep calm and carry on in the hallway leading to the dining room.  My sister said it is placed well because if I burn dinner I can always look at the poster and remind myself to keep calm.

Over the french doors leading to the living room there is a ski which instructs you to enter with a Christmas heart.

Again in the corner of the dining room more words. Inspired by London.

In the kitchen,  French words on the Steinlein print with the woman and her cats and dogs.

In the living room, the angel is made of newsprint. Lots and lots of words there.

All is calm all is bright above the doorway leading to the dining room.

And even the tray on display above the refrigerator has a menu written on it.

More words on the Chat Noir poster in the hallway, a gift from my friend Pauline.  I love it!

Yeah, I guess I like words.  Do you?


I completely agree about the word them too. I guess I never really considered myself someone that loved them as much as I do until I started blogging, funny huh!

I'm a word person as well; I have signs all throughout the house. Who did the wording on your wall? There's some that I want to do in my house but not sure who I can call?

LOL, I even buy Philosphy products, not just because they're good - but because I love the sayings on them. :)

Nice blog. If you like playing around with words you might like a series I am doing on cryptic crossword clues.

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 …
