Beautiful Weekend

This weekend was Amazing with my hubby for our Anniversary!! We visited a beautiful vineyard, ran into 2 old, great friends, enjoyed a picnic lunch with our son in our yard with pool time on a beautiful sunny day (which is so great, because it’s been constantly raining this summer), and got to have time…

Anniversary

Twenty Seven years ago, I married my husband, Paul. He has always believed in me and supported me, throughout all of my dreams. I am a very lucky lady indeed! This is a dedication to him. I appreciate his never-ending support of me, and his love. He is truly my best friend and partner in…

Marvelous Monday

Hello Everyone!! How’s everyone today? Another rainy day here in New England, and with the exception of a ton of fungi growing, ugh, everything does look quite lush in the yard and gardens. I have saved a ton of water this year and not watering as much, so that’s Marvelous!! How’s the weather where you…

Lunch with a Dear friend

After a long time of being careful and staying away from crowds and too many public places, I was happy to be out to lunch with my friend and food stylist/photographer on my new cookbook, Rachel Cournoyer. We had lunch in a quaint little town nearby in a cute coffee house. It was so nice…

Those Monday Blues…

Happy Monday everyone! It’s been quite gloomy here most of this month and some of last month, with tons of rain and grey skies. It’s been an uncharacteristically cooler summer for the most part. It’s been feeling more like Fall than Summer. Ugh. I need my summer weather to swim in my pool and enjoy…

What a difference a day makes…

Yesterday here in New England, it was uncharacteristically cooler than usual for this time of year, but very pleasant, and today, phew!!! The heat is stifling! I have been inside doing paperwork today for most of the day and just stepped out this late afternoon for some fresh air and to add to the compost…

Watching the Garden Grow

Today on Monday’s Happenings, I had a lovely day with my husband and son relaxing after the holiday weekend. Saturday, we went to my cousin’s home for a BBQ. It rained but we still had a nice time catching up under the canopies with family and met some new people. Sunday, we had a lovely…

Dream realized

The Day is here!! Thank you to everyone who has supported me and sent me messages of love and support, wishing good things!! I cannot express enough just how special you’ve made me feel and how much I appreciate all of your kind words!! My ebook Plant-Based Living for the Gluten-Free Cook is out today…

Dealing with summer heat

Summer is definitely here! The temps have been super high, and even the rain passing through some evenings doesn’t seem to be giving any relief. To keep cool, I definitely utilize the air conditioning, but swimming in the pool has been lovely when I just need to be out in nature, which I do often….

Preparing for Independence Day

This year, for the fourth, it’ll be a small celebration, but nice to have even a small group gathering again. I’ll be hosting a small BBQ celebration for my mother and stepfather, along with their new golden retriever, my daughter and her boyfriend, my hubby and me, and our son and dog. If the weather…
