I am back walking but what a change, no leaves!
We had a bad storm Thur night and blessings of blessings we did not lose power.
It is amazing how out of shape I got in that month I have not walked. Or at least the long walks.
We have had frost and winds but these roses keep on blooming.
They are next to the house but still amazing little roses.
I got this book at our local recycling center, it is 1954 and has lots of newspaper recipes ripped out and stuck in the book. I have agreed to cook for a couple of cookie walks so I am looking for some inspiration.
We headed to a baby shower in Maine 3 hours away but it took us through a small town called Cornish. I love this little town it has sweet shops and antiques and the best restaurant ever. We had a leisurely lunch and shopped and shopped. Not sure you can see this well but see the witches arms and legs sticking out of the tree?
I am trying to tone down my antique shopping. But at 20 percent off I paid so little for these kid skates...
That screw makes them adjustable. I am going to put festive ribbons on them and hang them on a wreath. Crazy but I love them!
I burn a candle every night after dinner and since I am a former Maine girl I adore the scent of the Maine balsam and now the house smells of the sweet memories of growing up in Maine.
It was a great trip We stayed with my Aunt and uncle, I saw a few cousins and enjoyed the baby shower. The Mom to be is a Maine State trooper (so is her husband) She came strolling in in a sweet dress and 3 inch heels and as darling as ever.
Have a wonderful week.
