My husband and I got up early and raced outside to try to see the Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse at the 'optimal time' here in Maine (6:45 am)--since it only occurs once every hundred years or so, we didn't want to miss it. And it was up there...behind the trees. So we jumped in the … Continue reading Blue Moon
I hope you all had fun with me this week. In addition to the week of cakes, my daughter gifted me with a cake today, bringing my total to eight for the week, and this is the one with which we celebrated with singing and candles. Here is today's cake from Wells IGA: Caramel … Continue reading My birthday
I went to a local concert last weekend with my daughter, part of the Wells Harbor Concert Series. Every Saturday evening in the summer, rain or shine, there is a free concert (rain venue is the junior high school). The band for the second concert of the season was a new one for us, The … Continue reading Dancing keeps you young

I have the next few days off and am thinking of fun ways to spend it: Go bowling Go to the movies: I want to see St Vincent, The Judge, and that Steve Carell movie about the terrible, very bad day. Get up early and go to yoga Go see the ocean! Check out the … Continue reading Leisure time: top 10 activities
Recently my husband and I took a vacation. This is news, because it was OUT OF STATE. Way out. Like, in NJ. Just getting the same days off from work together to go took weeks-and an aligning of the planets AND and act of congress. What was better about Atlantic City than Wells, ME? Not … Continue reading Home is where?
I love to go to the ocean. I go every day that I possibly can, rain or shine, summer or winter. Even if I only have 1 hour...hell, even if I only 5 minutes, I go. One thing that I don't often do, however, is swim in it. It's not that I don't want to … Continue reading Lost at sea
When I turned 50 this year, I decided to try to do things for the first time, since this is my first year in a new decade. Today, I went swimming at the beach all by myself. This is no small undertaking, to which anyone who wears glasses and is severely myopic will attest. The … Continue reading Another first
