Walking Wild Wednesday

When I shared this image of my daughter with her children my other daughter mentioned that it 

reminded her of me walking with her and her sister when they were young.

I had been thinking the same thing. 

The more things change the more they stay the same I suppose.

Where I’m at

 I have been blogging lately at a spirit of simplicity. It’s a wordpress account.

I have a new smaller desk to go along with my new smaller apartment.

So....I got a new iPad with a keyboard to fit on my new desk.

Blogger isn’t really comparable with iPad so I switched to wordpress. I still like blogger better though.

Everything I own in a box to the left

This is my dining room....or as we like to call it...ground zero.

I wish I could say the rest of the house looked better.

We move on Friday afternoon and Saturday. 

I’m so ready! 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Oh boy is moving ever hard!

The big move

These mark the end of our time here on this rather tiny sort of an island. 

At the end of June we will move back to our home town which is just a few towns over. 

The good

We will be renting a small flat on the second floor in old town Marblehead 

and my my mum will be just beneath us on the first floor. 

The fun

It’s quite a bit of work and Tucker has been doing his part to help out.

The random

Oh my!

Don’t even get me started on the random.

We can’t find anything and there’s still 11 days to go till we move.

Verne wants ice cream

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I spent Saturday with my daughter and grandchildren.

We certainly had a lot of fun!

Tucker's very favourite spots in the house is at the top of the couch.

He can see into the living and dining rooms 

and he can see out the front window onto Dog beach.

Hey-Joe is often just below him 

laying down to watch the telly.

I walked the beach last weekend and got a selfie...

I am happy with the way it came out

I don't look too bad for a 56 year old grandmother.

This is the day that the Lord has made,

let us rejoice and be glad in it.

be bop a lula

 If there is a point to any of this 

it is that we are here to love.

be bop a lula

she's my baby

be bop a lula

don't mean maybe

be bop a lula

she's my baby now

Coffee on the porch weather

sipping real slow on a Saturday...

watching the people go by

watching the sun come up over the beach

no particular place to go

I somehow heard a wonderful John Lennon song a few weeks ago

which led me stumbling through various Itunes, youtube and 

other places to find more rare Lennon recordings.

I ended up buying John Lennon Anthology 1998.

It was impossible to get on line so I had to buy it in it's

original 4 volume CD boxed set.

Joe and I have been listening to it all weekend.

And, it's got all kinds of Lennon's drawings in it. 

It's mad-groovy-cool.

family Friday

The weather over the weekend was new-englandish

We had quite a bit of rain but between drenching showers it was sunny and warm.

We got out for a walk along the beach and I found a few pieces of driftwood

to bring into my classroom. 

Turnabout is fair play so I got a picture of Joe while we walked as well.

Saturday morning I was out on the porch in short sleeves enjoying my coffee.

We went out to dinner to celebrate my birthday a few weeks ago as well.

Abigail was 4 months old on the 17th!

She is smiling and laughing and grabbing at all her favourite toys now.

I moved into a new classroom at work.

I did the entire move myself while my co-teacher was at a different center.

Wow! I was so tired when I got home.

We've been in there a few weeks now and it's so wonderful!

It's one of only two rooms with windows to the outside.

Joe walked Jack up the stairs to the train station

and I took some pictures of the wall art in Lynn.

I've got to get out there with my Nikon and get some better shots.

one morning

the good

Tucked in along the driveway rocks

the first tiny flowers of the season


the fun

Beyond Walls at the Lynn train station


the random

The cement barrier has been removed from the path to the beach

which means that winter is surely over.

Brothers and sisters:

whoever is in Christ is a new creation:

the old things have passed away; 

behold, new things have come.
