The window to the left looks out over a small Memorial park
and just beyond that is the Atlantic ocean and Short beach.
The window in the front of my desk looks out over
the lowlands gravel parking lot and the town ball fields.
In summer, we see families walking across the park
to and fro from short beach. We see the set up for
the Memorial day parade and we see them all marching up
the hill and into town. We see them march back and after stopping
at the cemetery at the top of the hill, we see them have another little
ceremony at Memorial park.
We can see both the men's and the woman's softball games
at night, after dinner in the park across the way.
We see folks bringing their dogs to Doggy beach,
which is just behind my desk.
We see the waves splashing against the cliffs
on this rather tiny island.
In the morning I watch the sun coming up
and in the evening I watch it going down.
I have the best seat in the house....no wonder I never get any work done.
I've been doing a lot of cooking
now that winter has settled in.
I love dancing around the kitchen
on a weekend afternoon.
a menu for the week.
last week we did really good and only missed one night
due to and errand we had to run after work.

I will also be making some egg and sausage bites and
banana waffles to freeze for on the go breakfasts through out the week.
Lunches will be leftovers.

for snacking on.
The sweet potato poppers sound good!ReplyDelete

Your time in the kitchen sounds delightful and delicious. I do love your photo and your melodic words describing the view.ReplyDelete
Welcome to Mosaic Monday, Kara, so glad to have your company. Your photographs are wonderful, you certainly have a room with a view (s). Hope to see you again next week with more recipes, mosaics and stories to share.ReplyDelete
Yes, I also sit in front of a window, and am easily distracted by birds, or the clouds floating by, or an unfamiliar car ... am I turning into a nosy neighbor?ReplyDelete
Kara, sounds as if you had a delightfully delicious week! I love the name of your blog. A spirit of simplicity makes life beautiful.ReplyDelete
Your desk looks like the prefect place to watch the world!ReplyDelete
