Marvin's Brook

Ahh… It is Friday. I have had a few… hours of sleep. I am up and at em. I came to work stepped out for an appointment at the hospital and now back at my desk. In a few short hours it will be 5 pm in my little part of the world and I will go home and spend the weekend with my love……

As I sit here this morning I think. Umm…. We need a night or two away. Perhaps I should do some Internet shopping and find a hideaway somewhere for a couple of nights. We could go to the movies, relax at dinner. Now that sounds like a good way to break up the long month of March! That is now the plan.. Operation Weekend Away…

For this weekend I think we will have a staycation. Oh yes two vacations in March. Now I am talking!! This weekend will be movies on the couch, I will make my husbands favorite dinner and some brownies. I might even go into my sewing room… But for sure I have already loaded up the Kobo with some new books and perhaps lazy mornings reading is in order! Oh it sounds like a great weekend to be had.

I took the above picture on a walk on my family’s property this past fall.  We have a wood lot, some meadows and there is a brook running on it. I wanted to share this with you as it is a place that I love. It always seems to help melt the stress away. It is where I cut my firewood for my home, cut our Christmas Tree, bows for decorations, gather wild raspberries and once in a while drop a hook in the brook. Happy Friday to all and wishing you a happy staycation this weekend too.

These are a couple of views from Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island.  In the second picture you can see Bar Harbor.  If ever you have a chance you will never regret visiting Eastern Maine and Mount Desert Island.  You can whale watch, cycle, swim, hike, camp, shop, eat, see lighthouses.  These are just a few of the many things.  My absolute favorite store in Bar Harbor is Island Artisans.  They feature local artists.  Glass blowers, pottery, jewellery to name a few.  They also have THE BEST chocolate and ice cream located at Ben & Bills Chocolate Emporium.  I cannot wait until the flowers are blooming and I eat an ice cream while walking on the Bar Harbor Shore Path.

I Love You

I Love You

I wanted to share with you something my husband did a few years ago on vacation. I was making sand angels on Cavendish Beach. It was a beautiful September day. He was carrying my purse and shoes because you cannot walk on the beach in shoes! As we turned to leave I saw this written in the sand. I have this picture framed in our living room.
