Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of super-strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a bit chilly out, but feels balmy after the screeching winds and bitter cold of yesterday. Quite a change from last week’s weather report, no? ;) And were are we? Some of you may know that Edward Gorey mug as being just a few miles from the Edward Gorey House on Cape Cod.
Wow, quite the week. I spent pretty much all of last weekend outside enjoying the weather. I even went running in shorts and t-shirt! I did the typical long walks, exercizing, other runs and a massage on Wednesday (hi Dottie ;) ). Wednesday evening I drove down here to The Cape.

It’s OK, but the real thing had so many colors that my hone didn’t capture, shades of purple, etc. I have rarely received as much attention for a photo. One person said it was the best photo I’ve taken in a while – a person who saw all of the waterfall and Cape Cod photos I’ve posted recently. And it’s a phone photo… Continue reading →
It was the longest day of the year. OK, I exaggerate. It was the day before the longest day of the year. I woke up a little before 5 AM on Friday June 19.
