The sight of both our vehicles at home makes me beam with happiness.
The shed on the top of the hill is in pretty bad shape, but it's picturesque. I've stored all the empty boxes in there and we'll see what happens this winter w/ the snowfall since there's an empty space where the window should be, on one side of it.
I was sitting on the back deck stairs one night earlier this month. It was about 5:30 p.m. I'd just gotten home from spending a lovely afternoon with my dear friend Martha (from college; we've been friends nearly 30 years), at her family's cottage in Dennisport. The weather was finally cool, with a nice breeze and there were big puffy clouds in the sky making cool patterns. I could hear the train whistle, and I could also hear the ice cream truck music as it made it's nightly run through our neighborhood. It was one of those perfect moments of peace and solitude.

No idea what this is, but possibly purple fringed orchid or some kind of fireweed.

Lilies in the front yard.
Doesn't it just scream out for a couple of pink flamingos?

Life is better than good, it's GREAT!
