Not a lot to talk about

Since I had dinner at the lighthouse, I haven't done much of anything.  Certainly nothing of interest and especially nothing blogworthy.  I am making some plans and making some changes in my life. Nothing  I can divulge yet but I am excited about it.

I've been putting in long hours at work, it's been so busy. Not leaving much time for play.
Except for the occasional cappuccino with friends.

I haven't see you! :) I was so disappointed I didn't get to do the art class last week, but I saw your name on the list - did you go? What a fun project. :) Hope you're doing well!!
Hi Elaine, a very mysterious post, I'm looking forward to hearing what you have in store! Oh, the cappuccino looks yummy!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Hey Elaine, coming by to answer your question. Quincy and Emma are doing fine..they are all tolerating one another..but Emma, tonight, chased Lily back into her bed..a few hissing fits but that's all. Emma is starting to show her dominance. Lily doesn't back down though. LOL Do you have the same type of thing happen when you bring a new kitty in?
I know what you mean by not "Blogworthy" That 's what I say sometimes, "This is "blogworthy". Not to worry, can't wait until you share your news with us :)

Hi Elaine! So interested in hearing more about the changes that are ahead for you! The fact that you are excited means they are good changes! There just isn't much going on in my life, either, so my blogging has been way down I'm afraid! Sorry work has been so crazy but happy you're enjoying cappuccino with friends! Enjoy this amazing weather we're having!... Donna

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 …
