How Is It June Already?!?!?!

I feel like I just put the Christmas decorations away and it's already June.  Time's going by just waaay too fast.  

We had a quiet Memorial Day weekend.  We've had a ton of rain around here so when it was sunny, we had to take advantage of it.  The Saturday of that weekend, we went to the Wareham Flea Market and scored these 2 super cool, unique glass bottles.  They're so heavy....they must weigh a ton when full of liquid!

It was nice to be able to sit on the deck in sunny weather too, till the gypsy moth caterpillars arrived. Those things gross me out so bad.  We were visiting my inlaws and they were even inside the gazebo. Two of them landed on me and I about had a nervous breakdown, so Russell suggested I go treat myself to a cupcake, so I did.

I thought this huge dragon fly was dead cause it looked like his wings were stuck in the web strands.  He was soooo still.  After I took, this I pulled a couple strands away, and it flew off!  

At least the rain has made for some pretty clouds and skies.  A huge and bright double rainbow was seen all over the Cape one night.  The pics posted on Facebook were beautiful.  I just get a lot of clouds which is fine too.





We got home from errands one day to find that Sagan had gotten ahold of an almost full package of lofthouse cookies, ate every single one and left the empty plastic clamshell on the floor.  I'd obviously left it too close to the edge of the counter.  The next day, however, we came home to THIS.  

We were sooooo not amused.  Sagan wasn't even sorry.

Hubs and my stepson trimmed the branches off of a tree for my mom.  The three of us worked really hard.  

It was way more of a job than I thought it'd be and now we have to cut up all the branches that were unloaded on the other side of the driveway.  

Cute li'l chipmunk.

We decided to check out a butcher shop up in Plymouth.  It's in an older, quieter part of town and I never stopped here thought I've driven past it a lot.  Piantedosi's is small, but packed full of delicious, fresh food, meats and Italian groceries.  I got a cheese lasagna that is to die for, and we were so pleased with the chicken wings as well.  Russell got some steaks too, and I picked up meatballs & sauce to make subs.

Walked around a bit.  Loved the signs in this part of town.





Russell told me that he used to deliver Coke at this old supermarket called Perry's, but he doubted it was still open.  We drove to where he said he remembered it was, and it was still open.  I wish I'd gotten pics of the inside cause it was like walking back into 1974.  He got a steak at their butcher dept. too, which he cooked up when we got home.  I even had a small piece and it was amazing.  He was literally in heaven!

Now I need to make some time for serious day trips!

  1. Lovely, busy post! Having trouble with time passing so quickly now, myself! Guess Sagan was frustrated being all alone, abandoned. So far, J n J haven't messed with the garbage, knock on wood. I would love to have a real butcher shop in our neck of the woods. You are fortunate! Has been a while since I've seen a chipmunk ... :-)

    1. The trash did seem somewhat retaliatory for leaving 2 days in a row because there was nothing in the trash for him to go after. Mostly paper towels, empty packaging and coffee grounds.

  2. I want to do and see everything on this post. Well, maybe not chop branches! Cheese lasagne! Steak! Lovely scenery. Sounds like you are leaping into June with joy. Have fun

  3. Poor Sagan. Our last dog used to hide upstairs when she knew she was in trouble and eventually slink downstairs as though we whipped her regularly. I guess they don't like to be left alone. Great pictures as usual and I hope Russell enjoys all his steaks.

    1. Thanks! Sagan's been properly contrite after spilling trash but this time he wasn't. I really do think he was pissed. Russell thinks I'm reading too much into it. lol And Russell loved his steaks.

  4. Oh, I love looking at your surroundings! New England is so much more a real place than here in AZ.

    "How is it June already?" is an excellent question. I could stand with starting February over and trying again.

  6. Boy, you can't beat a great butcher shop. I so miss them and apparently all of the best ones - or any at all - are located back east. I would live in that butcher shop!
