clearly not a daily blog…

I guess when there is work instead of vacation, the writing doesn’t happen as often!  Maybe because life gets boring?  But the weekend did come and go, and again, no writing. Not sure why, unless because it was such a beautiful weekend and we were BUSY!  So I’ll take  a few minutes now to get you all caught up – but just a few as I do need to get ready for work.

Friday was chore day – the usual errands and running around, as well as puttering around the house.  Got the hummingbird feeder up, and it was utilized immediately!  Have to put that up earlier next year. Also got the fabric washed and ironed that will be Mom’s wedding “dress” in July.  I am looking forward to making it, I think it will be pretty.

Saturday we went to Bar Harbor for a ride on Oli’s Trolley – they offered discounted tickets this week on their tours.  It was fun – learned some things I hadn’t known about the park and Bar Harbor.  And it was good to see Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, etc without having to do the driving. It was a gorgeous day, given the rainy forecast.  A bit chilly, but nothing unusual.

Sunday was spent celebrating Mom, of course – baked a couple of chickens and fixed some strawberries and chocolate ricotta, and carted it all over to her.  Everyone else brought salads and dessert, so we had a good cold supper.  Only missing three nieces, so it was a big crowd.  Came home early, A packed to head out on her first overnight trip in almost two years – wow!  She got right into the routine, though, and headed off bright and early this morning.

Which I clearly am not going to do, but I do have to get going!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
