I don’t think I’ve gone this long between posts, this is going to be a long one… grab wine.
Hmmmm, what to say about Monday…
I don’t hate whoever did this, I refuse to poison myself with destructive emotion for someone who doesn’t deserve a second thought. It was simply an act of cowardice.
Instead, I choose to focus on the love. There was far more kindness and compassion that day.
I don’t think this will faze Boston. It’s not that no one cares, they do… deeply, but everything I’ve read seems to focus more on the amazing people of this city helping in anyway they could, not the bomber. It is a nice change.
I predict a record breaking marathon next year; Bostonians refuse to be terrorized.
May he or she responsible find themselves publicly identified wandering around the North End… I think the Italians would handle it with grace.
The amazing view from the top of the tower we found while exploring the woods by our house… We find something cool every time we go for a hike.
Someone had broken down the door, so of course I went up to the top.
And they were fantastic! I love being around people who love to garden as much as I do. I can’t wait to take advantage of all the great classes and gatherings put on by these guys…
Happy dog place.
I miss you Casey Jane!
My babies are not babies anymore, they are all getting huge!
I never liked parsley, to me it had no flavor, now that I’ve had fresh cut I’m seriously hooked.
I went to a seed swap the other night… love.
I just love those two…
One of my very best friends (who is also a photographer) flew out to visit me for a week. We had such a blast!
I so miss all my girls…
If I had money I would take turns flying everyone to me.
I was photographing the owl, how on earth did I miss the bat wings! I may have to go back.
Essex is an entire town of antique shops. They’re mostly big ol houses converted, It takes an hour and a half just to get through one. I kinda have an ADD freak out moment every time I turn a corner. It truly is heaven.
Wynn was doing her evil cackle.
I love having Kari around, I’m not the only one laying on the sidewalk looking like an idiot.
We rode the carousel at the Commons, we laughed so hard our stomachs hurt. I’m not going to say why, maybe you’ll figure it out.
Smartie pants lost her ID and two credit cards while shooting (I’m sure squatting in some weird position caused them to fall out of her pocket). I can’t believe we found them, God bless honest people!
Boston cream pie at the Omni (where it was invented) for lunch. Should be on everyones Boston to do list…
I want a pineapple plant….
Beauty and the Bruce… yum.
Ahhh, she makes me laugh.
Oh my gosh, it’s me! I’m not really on here very often. HI!!!!
I love you girl!!! You made my month.
This is in my top three restaurants. I LOVE this place… and truffle fries.
My two favorite red heads!
My dear friend with the last name of
sent me a gift in the mail… dried lavender for my bedside table. The bowl she sent to put it in (that called to her from across a thrift store) is exactly the same as the one I broke two days before getting the package. Good timing girl! You know me well.
I break stuff, it’s a curse. It will look beautiful in a stepping stone… along with all the other treasures I’ve broken and can’t get rid of.
Tamiko and I went to the city garden to pick up rain barrels, tis a glorious place, I wish it was closer.
Lynn needs a city garden. Hmmmm
My love! Rhubarb.
I was talking to the couple that owns my favorite little garden center, and they said they don’t carry it because no one asks for it anymore. That is sad to me, everyone used to have a patch in their garden.
I now have eight patches. I planted five more starts last week because I thought the ones I planted last year fried because I planted them too late. Ummm no, three are coming back up. Maybe I’ll be the rhubarb lady at the farmers market…
Flowers for my momma…
And they lived happily ever after…
I can hear my mother… “shame on you, Barbara!” I have one where we’re not flipping Kari off, but the light is better in this one, and that’s what really matters.
It’s Earth Day on Monday… I love Earth Day even though I think it’s bullshit that it’s only one day a year. Sigh… Someday people won’t have to be reminded not to be a life suck.
Happy National Cheeseball Day Loves!
