Homework Helper

It always amazes me how the cats pay attention when the kiddos do their homework. They love to help! Well, kinda; every once in a while she swats at his pencil...

Maine Maple Sunday

It's always nice to stop by and visit with the McKenneys, but look who else we found - my aunt! Surprise!!

They're finally open!

They've been trying all week, but it's been too cold & grey. Today they are soaking up the warm sunshine! Hooray for springtime!!

Gypsy is For Sale

This was not an easy decision because we've had so many great adventures with her, but the kiddos have outgrown her and we're too busy to use her enough to justify the expense. Here are the listings on Craigslist and Uncle Henry's. Please take a look!

Celebrity Chix

These girls lay white eggs, so they're the stars this week of Easter egg decorating!
(Well, except for the buff photo-bomber in the back.)
Pretty Boy on the left wanted me to let you know that he's important too. He makes sure that we all wake up in the morning! I assured him that yes, that IS an important job.

My Yak is Itchy

He won't let me pet Lily at all. His wool is starting to come out, so he wants ALL the scractching!

Sarcasm Alert

This license plate solved the mystery of that great smell inside my car while I was sitting at a stop-light beside this vehicle...

A taste of Italy, here in Maine!

It was their first visit and they agreed that it is an incredibly delicious treat.

It sprung a leak!

Apparently there was a hole in the corn car. The wildlife is lovin' it! I startled a pair of mallards who had come down for a bite to eat this morning during my walk.

I would like to comment on how disgusting that trash is right next to where the critters are eating.
Please dispose of trash properly and do not litter!

Spring training begins today!

Those summer races may seem like they are a long way off right now, but time flies and they'll be here before we know it. We'd better be ready!

Another recipe to remember...

This evening she told me that all she wanted was some sort of white pizza that you could buy as a kit at the store and she expected me to go buy it for her. As if. Does that sound like something I am likely to do? Nope. I told her to pull out that 'smart' phone of hers and find herself a recipe! She was a bit upset with me at first, but by golly she just made a kick-butt white sauce that was way better than any I have ever made. Seriously, that Emeril guy knows how to write easy instructions on how to make delicious food: Roasted Garlic White Sauce Pizza. She is now quite impressed with herself and will definitely be making this one again!

Message from the sky...

"Do you ever wonder what happens when you put a message inside a balloon & send it up into the sky? Well, Kaden & Oliver (not sure who either of you are) we found yours in West Paris, Maine and wanted to make sure someone saw it..oh, and Happy 1st Birthday too! Please feel free to share." - from a friend's Facebook post. (I wonder if maybe they will see it here?)
