Hello my dears..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth on this lovely Friday evening..
We have been away for a few days and had a good time..
We just went down to Bangor, Maine and then came back via the coast road..
A beautiful drive..
I love seeing how people decorate their homes..
The pic above was of a day care that I thought someone might be interested in.. smile..
We stopped by a little goat farm to see if they were selling any of their soaps but the signs were down..
The goats were adorable as always, though..
Drove down to Bucksport and saw the bridge and Fort Knox..
We did a lot of shopping..
Then before we headed home we decided to go to St. Martins to check on the heat at the cottage and leave some stuff for the shop..
I took a few pics of my poor herb beds..
The Comfrey is up and doing great..
I brought some home to make my gardener's salve ...
But the yard needs work as do the beds...
I really do have to get busy...
Yes, the panic is on..
While we were driving through the village I noticed how busy everyone was...
Mowing their lawns, cleaning and remodeling...
Getting their businesses up and ready for the season..
Then we ran into some friends who own the wonderful Bed and Breakfast up the street with the Mexican food ..
They were wondering when we were opening the shop..
The rooms are not even finished let alone the shop ready to open..
Besides my heart rate rather high and running out of paper bags for me to breathe into we are doing fine... grin..
This is when I do my best work.. smile..
Next week we will be there for several days trying to get caught up..
I always dread getting the phone hooked up down there as they always mess up my Internet.. Dread....
I think I will wait until we are really there ...
I did find a few lovely old and prim things while we were away.
I love the old Chicken Barn for finding some neat stuff..
Lots of antiques and books..
Two of my fave things..
We ate at some lovely places and just had fun, too..
Of course, we (Terry) did not miss the hockey games..
Little cousin (Brad Marchand) does pretty good most of the time.. smile..
Hope the Bruins win...
I made a Shepherd's Pie for supper..
Different from my usual so here is the LINK..
I did not add the cheese as we do not need it and added a bit of garlic and herb to the hamburger..
Yes, Terry loved it..
He prefers simple food and this was simple but good..
Well, sweet ladies that is all for tonight.
This time of year our kids start their travelling..
I know that is so nice and all but they are on my mind..
One is on his way to Old Quebec City tonight..
Praying that they get there and back safely..
At least she speaks French.. grin..
Thanks so much for your visit and I am glad you came.
Welcome to the new followers, too..
Love having you..
Take care my friends..
