It’s Sā€™morelicious

Well… what can I say?

It is the last weekend of August which I guess in my books kinda means the end of summer, although not “officially” until September 23rd. It just gets busy. Kids goĀ back to school this week, programs and activities start up, temperatures are cooler…it’s just different. Gone are the lazy days of summer. David keeps saying he’s got to get out on the bike more!!! He took a drive down to Blue Rocks. It was a perfect night for a photo, full moon and all.


So to say goodbye August weekends and to get ready for September and Fall, we had a campfire and of course s’mores. S’mores are summertime treats. Ooey gooey roasted over an open campfire marshmallow sandwiched in between two graham crackers and oh, don’t forget the little piece of chocolate tucked in there too that melts ever so lightly because of the heat of the marshmallow. Oh yum!!!

This is the inaugural campfire and marshmallow roast! Our backyard renovation still ongoing, but some things complete. I know summer is over but having a fire within town limits is a little more difficult than country living ( we attempted a couple times). But it’s ready and we’ll use it in to the fall and winter too.

Tonight was Ā Sā€™morelicious!

Lunenburg County is dry!

If you NEED gas today you just may be out of luck!

no gas

LOW prices and gas shortage at the refinery right now means that on this beautiful sunny Saturday, when folk are hittin’ the roads for some last weekend of August adventure before school starts…

well let’s just say I hope you gassed up BEFORE today because there’s NO GAS in Bridgewater!

PS. We got some this morning just in time.

Enjoy your last gorgeous weekend of August 2015!

A summer of seafood

How can you not enjoy the goodness from the sea when you live on the East coast?

There is no question I LOVE SEAFOOD!!!! I could eat it everyday. Lobster, scallops, shrimp,squid, haddock and salmon. And probably in that order. I love clams and mussels too however I don’t think they like me. I think I’ve developed a sensitivity so I am a little more cautious eating them(but I will on occasion) oh..and a little sushi.

Summertime and backyard picnics and quaint seaside restaurants eating outside of course, are a great time to enjoy the “catch of the day”

There is nothing like fresh maritime seafood!!!!


I LOVE our summer adventures. Out in our car and off to adventures unknown…

IMG_7728We stopped at interesting little spot for lunch this weekend. It gets great reviews!

DSC08152And no wonder!! This is the kind of bakery and deli that makes David drool. We shared a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich, one of the deli’s specialties. We sampled the sugar pie ( delish) and each chose a treat and a coffee for the road. Owners Jacques & Carolyn, natives from Montreal Quebec have the perfect spot. They look after the main dishes andĀ theĀ baked goodies areĀ made daily by their daughter with fresh ingredients, no preservatives and high quality. YUM!! I want to go back for sure. If only we lived a bit closer…but then again maybe not a good idea.

Man’s Best Friend šŸ¶

Dog days of Summer? Hot and sticky, high humidity!!! ugh…not fun. Today is raining so hopefully it will clear the air a bit.

In other dog news…

August 26th is NationalĀ Dog Day!Ā AĀ Holiday to Honor Dogs

The U.S. Humane Society estimates that 47 percent of households in the United States own at least one dog. They are commonly referred to as ā€œManā€™s best friendā€ due to their impact on human society. It may be a holiday in the U.S. But I like it and so…
Here’s to you, Abby!Ā šŸ¶
