A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

More Ice Cream and Doughnuts!

Back home and just as puffed up as can be. More ice cream and doughnuts! Well, I already wrote about it in my last post; however, I'd like to add that I didn't stick to my eating plan. Normal for me when it comes to facing dessert.

On our way home we stopped at a small town along the coast. After shopping and lunch, we both had another ice cream cone. I dropped the whole thing on the boardwalk, but they let me have another and wouldn't take any money, saying, "People drop them all the time". So nice of them.

Oh, but wait: This morning, we went to the bakery, again, and ate more doughnuts! Now, this calls for a low-carb diet and bike-ride every night for the rest of the summer! We can make it fun and tasty; you'll see!

Last night, our final night in Frankfort, we saw a wedding on the beach and a concert in the park. Someone played lots of "oldies" on his guitar: Eric Clapton, Elvis, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, 5th Street Bridge, Roger Miller, Moody Blues, Simon and Garfunkle and on and on. Boy, was he ever a hit! We sat on a picnic bench with fresh fried perch and a bottle of wine.

Back to the beach with our family, we sat around a bonfire. Oh, but that was after I'd had another scoop of peppermint ice cream at Moomer's. What? You say. Yes, I say: It was my VACATION and THAT INCLUDES "EATING"!!!

Tired, with a full tummy, I'm happy to be home. Pleasant dreams of anything but ice cream and doughnuts!
