Planning to auction this off to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing...so many deserving I'm having a hard time picking out a beneficiary...although I've got my eye on NEADS, an organization who will be providing service dogs free of charge to any of the victims if they so desire.
Seahorse bracelet...still need to add a clasp!
Otherwise, the summer has been filled with visitors and a last minute decision to head to the house in NJ we are trying to sell (that I stayed in last summer during our transition to MA) and a bit of work upheaval (all positive!). We didn't have any internet...save for a hotspot I used to work in the morning...so there wasn't any blogging going on then. So I emptied out my phone of all the pics and here is a photo summary of the last few weeks!
I think I went up this big hill four times in the last few weeks showing friends and family this gorgeous ruin of a castle....ironically my work upheaval is closely tied to this castle (more on that in another post)!
This boy has been reading and fishing and generally enjoying the outdoors. The library in town is offering a raffle ticket to a $300 gift card if kids read 15 books this summer. So far he's got 12 under his belt and has until next friday to read three more!
Had a great visit with mom when she came up for a festival her company was having in New Hampshire!
It had rained all day, but when we went for dinner, the sky cleared up and we lucked out with a table right next to the water! What a delight!!!
Bingo was his usual troublesome self! He's lucky he's so cute most of the time, and I didn't send him to the pound (AS IF I would ever...) when he tore open some of the bags of beads I brought with me!
I wish this house wasn't so far away (eight hours)...because I can honestly say, it ranks right up there as one of my 'happy places'!!!
And we caught an absolutely gorgeous sunset the last night we were in Jersey (I see some color palettes in my future!).
A cool moth that showed up on our fridge one day...
A bowl of noodles and veggies? What's this? I thought is was so pretty! I hardly ever post food pics...but I do take TONS of pictures of food....and I am finally realizing - I seem to have a real affinity and strong opinions towards food on many levels and I foresee some dedicated food posts in the future of this blog!!!
