The above photograph is of my grandson. Little Man is almost one! And, as you can see in the photo, he loves blueberries and chocolate. Mind you, this was his first experience with chocolate. I think they are having him try it before he gets his birthday cake. He loves fruits and vegetables, my Little Man, and eats so many healthy foods.
I’ll be visiting them next month to celebrate his birthday. We’ll be having a pool party, complete with barbecue. Can’t wait to see him, his momma and daddy, and his auntie. It’s been a few months since I’ve seen any of them.
Now that spring is here, I’ve not been wanting the heavier foods of winter. Actually, I’ve been quite bored with food as of late, so I’m looking at coming up with some new recipes. Do you ever get bored with making the same set of meals over and over?
I love that Aroma Joe’s, up the street from me, has amazing tea! And that I can sit outside on days when there is sun and little wind. I’m really hoping for a day this week when I can enjoy being there while getting some work done outside, Mother Nature willing. They also have delicious oatmeal. Though I’m aware that it is not truly healthy. It makes for a nice treat once in a while.
I’ve been walking when the weather is nice, and have managed a couple of picnics in The Gardens, a beautiful area on the UMaine campus near where I live.
The Gardens have so many wonderful trees and flowers, and even a pond near where I like to sit and work. Nothing beats being able to take your shoes and socks off, enjoy a delicious homemade lunch, and drinking a refreshing water, all while working on a writing project.
If only the weather would cooperate with me enough to allow me to do this type of thing on each of my days off. Sigh.
So, I have some news. I’m working on getting these archived articles moved to another platform, and then might change this newsletter to one that goes out by email. I’ll be sure to let you all know when this happens, so you don’t miss an issue. The blog platform I chose will work better for this type of newsletter, being more visually appealing, and the email platform I’ll use for new issues allows me more freedom creatively. I hope you’ll like them.
I had wondered if I should just delete all the old newsletters, but couldn’t bear to when it came down to it. So many memories shared with you all. I’ll be checking for broken links and whatnot when I move them, but will keep the information intact.
