Second Look


So, the twins took time off from the Rhode Island beaches and came with their parents to Grandma and Grandpa’s for an afternoon.

Flowers, Frog, Fox

This weekend’s gardening was mostly about pulling things up before I had to unearth them from the impending fall mountain of leaves. Still, there were a couple of small discoveries.

Blogger toying with me


Procrastination has its advantages.

          Over the weekend I had what seemed to be a creeping technological infection.

My blog reading list that I use to access favorite sites was becoming less and less accessible. First I was unable to reach one or two blogs, and by Sunday almost my entire list was unreachable. I would click on the title, and instead of landing happily at Going Gently, for instance, I’d hit a wall. I tried my iPad instead of my laptop and aimed myself at Ellen Abbott’s land and instead of lovely glass artwork, I was landed in the middle of what looked to my untrained eye like coding, all numbers and hieroglyphics.

          I returned to my blog list and began writing down everyone’s addresses. I don’t want to lose you folks! And then I meandered away my Monday instead of facing up to a tedious task of trying to figure out how to re-enter sites on my blog, if even that would work.

          This morning I opened my tablet, and voila! You were all there!

Circling Back


I’m still fascinated by life’s coincidences. Long before I ever knew I’d marry a Massachusetts boy, never mind live in Massachusetts, my father traveled up here from Virginia in possibly 1969ish and ended up at the Brimfield Flea Market. It’s the largest in New England, at least a mile in length.

Unicorn Hunting

A full 15 minutes on the phone listening to music and recorded apologies about the wait and one more time hope crashed and burned.

This has been the weekend of celebrations – three family birthdays in the span of two days, plus a Bar Mitzvah in New Jersey.
