Family Friday

On Saturday morning I went to breakfast with my mum.

On the way to her house I noticed that there was a beautiful 

sailboat anchored just off  Egg rock.

It was so pretty that I pulled over 

along Lynn Shore Drive to get a picture.

Mum and I ate our breakfast on the dock at her club.

 Breakfast is very simple but the view is stunning.

We watched the townies going off for a sail of a morning

and a few larger fishing boats head out as well.

After breakfast we walked over to Fort Sewall.

It's in old town Marblehead and the streets are very narrow.

Fort Beach Way has their mailboxes set up along the main road because 

it's too difficult for the post to get down into the tiny street.

My mum and I have been coming here together since I was a baby.

I hadn't seen her in a while because we both have been very busy.

It was nice to be together.

Last night I got caught in a rainstorm on the way home from work.

But, as I was driving home from the train station the sun came out

and as soon as I got onto this rather tiny island....

a huge rainbow!

walking home

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

My mum and I went out to breakfast on Saturday morning.

We ate on the deck at the Marblehead boat club

watching the harbor of a morning.

After we ate we walked the old Fort Sewell.

The U.S.S Constitution sailed by here during the Revolutionary war

hiding out from the English.

It was pretty peaceful while we were there...

only a few tourists and a plein air painting class...

Marblehead light, a tall ship anchored off Egg rock, 

and a slip of a girl going for a swim amongst the dories. 

We watched the wind blow the grass around a little

and sunlight glisten off of the water

and then we mosied on home.

20 July

I got a chance to walk about Beacon Hill before work one morning.

The window boxes are just so beautiful.

I absolutely love Beacon Hill.

I've been searching for a bedroom rug for years

and I finally found one while shopping at Home Goods.

It was a great price...though still a little more dear than I would have preferred.

It was so worth it and has just the right amount of just the right colours.

Tucker likes it as well.

We had a crazy storm Tuesday evening.

It rained as hard as it ever could rain.

All the commuters (including my husband and I)

were drenched.

When we finally got home and dried off

the sunset and clouds were pretty spectacular.

My geraniums are blooming beautifully out on the porch

They look so pretty.

My daughter bought me this sweet little vintage stationary

for Mother's Day.

I found a pillow that matches it perfectly!

It's on the rocking chair in the kitchen

and it is so cheery!

seeking Sabbath

God has made everything appropriate to its time,

but has put the timeless into their hearts so they cannot find out,

from beginning to end, the work which God has done.

Family Friday

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I spent a day this week with my favorite boy ever.

Joe and I went up to New Hampshire to a party

for my best friend's son.

He turned 21.

This is him when he was 8!

Speaking of birthdays...

Jack's birthday was last week as well and we celebrated with a little bit of cake and ice cream.

It isn't my daughter Bonnie's birthday but...

she looked so beautiful at camp that I took a candid shot of her.

I have been looking for a home church since I returned to the

Catholic church in February.

I think I have finally found it.

Wouldn't you know its the very same church I grew up in.
