Summer time has come and gone
Marblehead Boat Yard’s flag which hangs from the crane they use to lift boats into and out of the harbour is one of my very favourite sights.
They hang the flag on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labour Day.
I’m very grateful to live in such a beautiful place.
I hope y’all had a very relaxing and enjoyable Labour day weekend.
I had all sorts of plans laid out for deep cleaning and organizing at home but in the end decided to spend one day with my grandchildren, one day with my brother and sister-in-law, and the rest of the time relaxing. I’m pretty sure I stayed in my pajamas most of Monday.
I found a wonderful old cook book at the second hand store.
Inside were all kinds of all natural, earthy crunchy recipes. My favourite!
This is stewed prunes with cinnamon and orange.
I’ve served it over steel cut oatmeal with walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I did have a chance to pull out some of my Autumn decorations over the long weekend.
I don’t really consider summer over until the Autmnal Equinox which isn’t until 22 September this year.
But…it is nice to have a few pumpkins here and there…and maybe an apple scented candle in the air.
The gardens about town have started to wind down…
Hydrangeas are starting to turn that beautiful muted colour as they fade into Fall.
And last but certainly not the least a day with my grandchildren!
I can say it was not easy to get the selfie with all four of us.
Verne kept ducking in and out of the camera view, Abby wasn’t quite sure what was happening, and little Natalie kept looking away.
We did finally manage to get something fun though.
