So what have I been up to?
I had a couple of ice storm damaged trees cut down. Including the maple in the front yard which I had been wanting to remove anyway. So there is lots of logs waiting to be split now...
I replaced the maple with a beautiful Sweet Bay Magnolia and enjoyed watching it bloom for the first time. The scent of these pretty flowers was amazing. A vanilla, citrus, floral scent....love it.
I spent a lovely day at the ocean ...just me & my camera doing the loop around the perimeter of Cape Ann. I got lots of great photos. The one below is one of my favorites .
Baseball season has come & gone. Jake finished out the season with the best batting average on his team which made him really happy. Can you see the ball in the photo below as it sails by just to the left of that third baseman in red?
I've spent the past couple of weeks going through old photos of Amanda for a project I am doing for her birthday. It was a weepy couple of weeks feeling sentimental & wishing my little girl was still my little girl & not all grown up and 3000 miles away. We leave for Seattle & the pacific northwest a week from Friday to spend 2 weeks with her. Can't wait to see her !!!!
