On The Road

I've been on the road and home and on the road again. There is not an accurate chronological order to this post, but I blame that on blogger; well, actually, my arranging these photos incorrectly. But in any case. I've been seeing a lot of wonderful sights... 



…starting in Provincetown with the addition of a wood screen door that I keep swooning over. It is so reassuring that this is beachy Cape Cod. I'm here for a few days by myself to write and organize our house for its summer rentals.


And behind of our house in Ptown, because I am uncharacteristically on the side of the house where a bike rack will go,  I finally notice this darling house. I cannot believe JB and I have a place on this beautiful cape.


Unexpectedly, JB and I are traveling through Boston (Allston) on our way to Maine for the funeral of our friend's father. RIP. At a traffic light is this painted building.


We stop at a rest area in beautiful Maine with purple irises.


 I have lunch with Jessica and get caught up on what the kids are up to. I could listen all day. (This is Logan and Reese; photo taken by Jess)



I bring a new chair to Ptown for the upstairs bedroom. It is a 1950's chair from my parents' basement and JB and I have bought new cushions for it at Target. It looks perfect when I put it here.


When I leave Ptown, I drive along 6A and see either low tide or high tide.


I return to home sweet home here in Western Massachusetts.


Yesterday JB and I go to a very fun wedding in Hartford Connecticut.


And today we drive 90 minutes have lunch and celebrate our niece's 31st birthday.  We end the afternoon back home with soft serve ice cream.


I've left out things like shopping for sheets, mowing the grass, paying some bills, visiting my Mother, and bring out the hammock from the basement.

This is  a little too much action at one time. But it's summer and that means one day of longer sun light feels almost like two. I will slow myself down. I will. But for now I'm happy I'll get a good night's sleep tonight.  I hope for a good summer. I do.

  1. I love looking at your pictures and particularly like the last one, the hot dog one. It just looks like an easy place to be to gab away an afternoon in summer.

  7. Love all the colors blue in this post and love the picture of the two little ones.
    One of the most good things about summer : the long days.
