Hiking Monhegan…

Hiking Monhegan Island, Maine. Is there anything better? The island is small so we can cover a good amount of territory and then stop for lunch, head back out then come back in time to get ready for dinner or meet up with friends.

The peace and quiet in these woods is immeasurable. We are not used to such quiet.  When we’re out hiking I will stop… “JUST LISTEN to the silence!” – I love it. Fresh air, silence, peace. It’s like no place on Earth.

Blessed to be able to visit!

Like Fred says… “this is my happy place”, me too Fred! Me. Too!

Monhegan…

A license plate on the Monhegan Trucking truck.

A welcome site when you arrive to the island and need your bags taken to your location. It’s cool how the few trucks line up ready to take your bags. The Island Inn, the Monhegan House, Monhegan Trucking and others picking up mail, packages, etc.

They have it down to a science!

Back to normal posting next week – catching up after a week of being out with a cold. Back to the land of the living, woohoo!

What do you eat when you have a cold?

The reason I’ve been posting photos is because I’ve been under the weather. 😷🤒Nothing drastic, just a horrible cold. This week I am feeling better, but playing catch up – so I will be back to normal posting next week! But… stay tuned, I have some great photos this week!

What do you tend to eat when you have a cold? I didn’t feel energetic enough to whip up a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup, so Fred stopped on his way home from work and picked up some Egg Drop Soup from Red Orchids Bistro (in Charleston, SC). It was delicious. It lasted two days. It was perfect!

What else have I been eating? At first not much, too much time sneezing and coughing, but I did eat an orange each day which was delicious! Toast… scrambled egg, a lot of green tea, regular tea and fruit popsicles.

Wondering what YOU eat? Do you make something or order out? The ingredients in canned chicken noodle soup gives me the willies, yet it tastes the best, sadly. Unless you’re going to make your own of course!

More art, recipes and house plans next week…

Spring has SPRUNG!

 

Snapped a photo of a bouquet that was for sale at the Monhegan Farmers Market back in September – seemed to be the perfect “first day of Spring” photo!

Spring has Sprung! I think this forsythia is the perfect example of just that!

EVERYTHING is blooming right now, it’s beautiful!

Quite a “different” winter for us. Warmer than normal by quite a bit. Then when temps should be warming up we were cold. Just try to guess what the weather is up to, ha ha… Happy Day – back to normal posting next week!

The French Huguenot Church – Charleston, SC!

Charleston, SC is full of beautiful, historical churches. Each stunning in their own way!

This is the French Huguenot Church – the architecture… STUNNING! What history this church has! It was originally built around 1687, it has been destroyed several times, fire, shellfire during the War Between the States and a severe earthquake in 1886. This building was completed in 1845 – read the full history HERE!

Even the less beautiful things in life are kind of interesting…

I believe that even the uglier things in life are interesting. When I saw this I thought about something (somewhere?) I read recently. A gallery didn’t want to accept paintings from an artist if they had power lines in them. They said that it dates the painting. Hmmm. Interesting. I think we’re long away from not seeing any power lines – and personally, I like to see when artists paint them in, I think it adds a nice touch – gives the painting character!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Azaleas Blooming – January.

The azaleas began blooming in January. Normally you will see a few azalea’s blooming at an off time, but our entire street is filled with blooming azaleas, and it’s stunning! I just don’t recall it happening so early!

Enjoy the beauty while you can!
