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 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!

Sprrrriiiiinnnnnngggg FORWARD!

Spring Forward!

Spring. Crazy to think Spring is just around the corner! March 20 to be exact…

Forsythia is the perfect flower to welcome the new season – it’s wide expanse of small yellow blooms will put a smile on your face!

Reminder – if you live in an area that observes Daylight Saving Time, be sure to set your clocks AHEAD one hour before you go to bed. You’re right… this is the time change where we lose an hour of sleep. But, the reward is that the days will be longer! Catch you back here tomorrow!

Grandma’s Homemade Butterscotch Pie!

gma-butterscotch-pie

Growing up, this pie was a treasure that you could barely wait to come out of the oven, let alone cool. It is absolute perfection. This was another of my grandma’s recipes. I shared her Chocolate Pie recipe with you, and this Butterscotch Pie is just as amazing. To print the recipe, minus photos, click HERE!

Butterscotch Pie

I don’t make these pies often, but when I do, it takes me back to being a kid. My dad’s mom made the very best pies!

NOTE: A better photo is needed, I believe I snapped this on the second day right before it was getting ready to be eaten… 

File this one away for a special occasion, save it to Pinterest – I keep a “Recipes to Try” board, that’s helpful when I tire of the same old thing and need something new!

Catch you back here tomorrow!
