Indian Summer

Sunday, November 8, 2015 As I said in my last post… Winter is coming. But apparently not quite yet. I asked my husband one particularly warm late September day… do you think this is Indian Summer?

The Seasons Change… Pacing and Barn Sour Horses

The Kitchen Sink

Monday, October 5, 2015 This blog seems to be a kitchen sink kind of entry as it’s forming very loosely in my mind. We’ve had some pretty ugly weather in the past week. Storms off the coast and other weather fronts have socked us in with some rain, wind and cooler temperatures. Thankfully some sunshineContinue reading “The Kitchen Sink”

Which Way Challenge

This is a fun blog challenge a little out of the scope of green to 100’s usual fare. I was inspired by a great blog I’ve been following (Little Pieces of Me) who did a which way post. The object of Cee’s Which Way Challenge is to capture “the roads, walks, trails, rails, we move from oneContinue reading “Which Way Challenge”
