Brown Sugar Sand

I have an affinity for Brown Sugar~ in cookies, spice cakes, and crumble toppings~ but especially in the summer if I can’t feel the sand between my toes. . .  I pretend I’m beach side~ substituting sugar for sand~  the texture ideal for sculpting turtles, shells, sand castles and even mermaids! Here are several brown sugar sand posts…

Shades of Grey and a Winner!

  Grey . . . Foggy. . . Misty. . . Perfect weather for our resident Heron~ who despite the foggy & murky conditions, manages to keep a keen eye out for any fish. Or perfect weather to sit inside and enjoy some tea~ The winner of my Chickadee Giveaway is Rett at The Gazebo House! Rett~…

Moments of Bliss

Bliss is defined as supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment. For Gracie, seeing is apparently not required to experience it~ Just sitting in my mother-in-law’s lap~ Soaking up a little sunshine~ For Chloe it’s a few ice cubes to crunch on~ For me it’s the promise of Spring and some blue sky after some grey, dreary weather~  Wishing you some moments…

They’re Back…

They’re back . . . Squatting on our neighbor’s dock. . .  Squawking. . .  Soaring. . .  Sunning. . . Providing us with a show & some smiles :) “Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way…

Reflecting and January Blues

January for me is a time of reflecting. . . Trying to avoid the January Blues. . .  Cleaning out the old~ Making way for the new. . . Hoping your New Year holds time for you to reflect & relax~ Thank you for your visit, I’m  joining:  Mosaic Monday~ Outdoor Wednesday ~ Watery Wednesday ~   Seasonal Sundays~

C is for Chairs

    C is for Chairs     This week’s letter assignment is the letter C.      We spend a lot of time sitting in our chairs at the lake. You may not be aware, but there is a fine art to “Chair-Sitting”. It involves:  Stare at the Water and Clouds. Read a Little. Sip on a Drink. Watch the Purple Martins. Hold…

B is for Boat Names

B is for Boat Names . . . This week’s letter assignment is the letter B. I’ve always enjoyed looking for boat names~ humorous, serious, clever, pun-intending, or nautical-inspired~ and wonder about the inspiration for the names chosen. A couple of Jimmy Buffett song-boat-names to put you in boating spirit. . .   I thought I’d include a little of the lore & superstition…

All Aboard

  I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.    Thank you, Susan, for hosting such a fun event & providing dishaholics everywhere with a weekly fix ~     Instead of setting a table on my porch, I packed a picnic and set the pontoon for this week’s tablescape. . .     We…
