I don't get near enough time to indulge in one of my favorite past times, photography. I'm blaming it on available time but, really it is mostly due to gumption. After a life time of go, go, go who would have thought my get up and go would be get up and gone!? or so it seems a lot of the time. When I do make the effort it relaxes me, soothes my soul and brings me a lot of happiness. It also teaches me patience! Yesterday I made the long trek from Pennsylvania to Maine. As I crossed the bridge onto the Island in the evening hours and waning light I  said a little prayer thanking God for traveling mercies that day. Surprisingly it was an easy driving day. Especially since I suffer from insomnia and slept only a few hours before I arose befuddled wondering how I was going to drive for 12 hours. As it was, I forgot a major piece of my luggage!  I didn't make my usual stop at my brother's in southern Maine. My sister-in-law was in the hospital undergoing y


Today I have much to be thankful for. I woke up with no wheezing, coughing or burning in my chest. I feel sooo much better than I have in the past 2 months. I still have some symptoms but I feel so encouraged for the first time since I was put on medication almost a month ago now. So, it's onward and upward! It's a beautiful day also.

She was already 10 years old then. She's not a young thing but she doesn't know it, lol.  While I was in M


SUMMER IS ON IT'S WAY OUT Sad to say, I am looking forward to September! The heat and humidity in Pennsylvania is unbearable day after day. I am a Spring and Fall person  I guess. Being a Mainer at heart I enjoy the ocean in Summer, well, truth be told, I love the ocean no matter what season it is! Oh, so beautiful and POWERFUL!

Or, how about this one of "Thunder Hole"?  I guess I should include a photo of Josh and Judi too...💖  Judi is a beach walker and an ocean gazer while Josh is an explorer and loves to climb. Meanwhile, back at the ranch... I am still fighting the bronchitis I came home with and am on my second round of antibiotics. I will tell it to you stra
