03:59 PM EST [Link] Another Cape Vacation Sunset [comments: 0]
vaca2016_fbf (162k image)
Never gets old.

Well, it was a great run, and hit all the great places, Brewster, Yarmouth, Chatham, Orleans, Ptown, Truro, Wellfleet, Dennis, and all the great beaches on both the ocean and bay sides to capture some great sunset pictures, like Rock Harbor and First Encounter Beach (Some photos I took there was actually chosen to be highlighted by the Instagram accounts, ig_massachusetts and Newengland_Photography, another way to get some exposure. See?). Although I've only posted a few here I've taken gigabytes worth of worthy ones, and enjoyed just watching them occur, and I even learned a little bit more of history and enjoyed myself immensely. Although I've been here quite a few times before, for some reason, I really enjoyed my time here this go round (maybe it was the perfect weather everyday, the massages, the beach, the pool, the biking, the sand, the waves, the ocean, the relaxing). But it's also good to be back too. The only downside was all the insect bites I endured to get some of these shots, but it was worth it. (I'd also be lying if I said I was not looking forward to the next getaway in a few weeks!)

Ahhh, perfect beach day, playing in the water and lounging in the sun for a few hours. Perfect. Skaket is by far my favorite beach down here, for a bunch of different reasons. For supper cooked up some shrimp, some pasta, tomato, and more cousa squash for a deliciously simple meal!

While biking along the rail trail, Namskaket Creek. Indians sold it to the English settlers in 1644. Also, with all the travelling we do, we'd easily catch all those silly pokemon things, if I had any interest in that silliness.

Also today, went to the beach off of Chatham but it was really windy, so much so that the sand was whipping in our faces. I didn't mind it too much but LD did. She said it felt like "tiny pieces of glass attacking her legs." Stayed a little over an hour with that. I did enjoy the sun beating down on me as the breeze washed over my body. Afterwards ended up just swimming in the pool together, and I sat in the hot tub for a little bit, and then it was off to a nice dinner and then capturing some of the sights around here. Also saw a nice little library box not too far from the lighthouse that I looked in. Tomorrow, I'm going to rent a bike and do the Rail Trail. I've done it before, so no great shakes. If you can tell by my pictures that I am enjoying myself, you'd be right!

Saw Ghostbusters movie this afternoon - I liked it! Also, we finally cooked some of the zucchini we've been growing (brought it down with us after I cut some loose from their stems). At first, we weren't totally sure which kind of squash it was as it didn't look like any squash we've ever had. I believe it to be the Magda or Cousa type squash. I will say, it is quite delicious!

A trio of monuments at Living Stones

Started out the day checking out a farm in a little town called Hubbardston (close to places like Gardner and Fitchburg). I've never been to that part of the state - there isn't much there really. But the place was really cool. They keep producing baby alpacas that you can visit and they run around pretty much freely. The babies even came up to us, their fur is so soft - so cute! Definitely worth the drive. On the way back I wanted to check out some Johnny Appleseed stuff, since that pioneer was born in the area, planting apple trees as he went. Finally we noticed not too far away, a possibly odd site where someone had taken tons (literally, tons) of unwanted stone and erected them with crafted biblical quotes on many of them. Place had sort of a weird vibe - didn't stay long.

03:43 PM EST [Link] Grillin like a Villian [comments: 0]
grill2016 (95k image)Now that the patio is done, we've been grilling like crazy. We've used it more already than all of last year! So far have done vegetables, steaks, salmon, and chicken at various times. We've cooked and entertained twice so far for visiting friends! And of course augmented with selections from our garden, such as tomatoes and basil and such. The zucchini squashes are staring to look really amazing!

On the reading docket for this week: Catullus' Bedspread (perhaps a strange choice, but ties into my recently completed reading about the ancient roman empire), Van Halen Rising (a history of the group's forming and early years), and The Cabaret of Plants (how plants have stirred the human imagination). More books to help me reach my goal of at least reading four books a month.

Also, summer colds suck!

- Working on the back yard, landscaped the front by removing the weeds by the fence and then laying down the area with sand and crushed stone. Also took the dirt that i extracted from the raised bed walkways and used it to regrade other areas of the yard that had dips and such. Also mowed and weed whacked.
- Saw Alma Wahlberg while passing through Hingham. We tried looking for her again to maybe get a pic with her but she had sadly disappeared. If you don't know who she is, she's the mom of Mark and Danny, and Paul, etc. While driving through Hull somehow ended up at the very tip, which offers amazing views of Boston and the harbor. Lots of sailing going through there as well. Amazing little unknown spot!

Not much to report today so far. Just biked in the morning but got wet a bit because it decided to rain. Naturally it did so only for the 20 minutes that I was actually riding. The rest of the day is and has been dry. Did spy a blue heron out back skulk around and actually eat a little tiny fish though, so that was cool. There are humongous bullfrogs in the water back there as well. The designers actually did a really nice job of setting up that little area.

Saw this little guy this weekend just hanging around. Almost done with the landscaping around the raised boxes. Didn't get around to the toy chest yet, but did do our first grilling of the season - chicken, salmon, and corn. Starting to decor the three season. Got another pink hydrangea for the yard, as well as a fancy tropical looking plant for the 3 season, although the cat likes to eat it. No, no, no! Actually, the cat seems to love the room so much, she's pretty much made it her own!

03:44 PM EST [Link] Fire Lily Blooms [comments: 0]
flily (60k image)The fire lilies out front that we planted last year and starting to bloom again. They look amazing, so pleased to see them pop and add some color. Got a number of tasks I'd like to finish this weekend if I can. I've also been self-pollinating the zuccini flowers just in case the bees aren't doing their job. Putting together a new lamp for the sunroom, mowing the lawn, digging some more around the raised beds (maybe buy a wheelbarrow finally to assist in moving things around!), setting up the grill, and finally getting around the refinished off that toy chest we got from a yard sale last year.

Late afternoon Update! Whew! Ended up doing a bunch of yard work today afterall. Got all the sand down between the boxes for the walkway, now just need to cover it with the stones and put down the stone pavers around the perimeter which I plan to do sometime tomorrow. Even bought a new wheelbarrow today to assist. It wouldn't exactly fit in the back of the SUV, so I laid down in the back with it and held the rear hatch so it wouldn't open and things would fall out. Luckily it was a real short ride to get it home. Then I went ahead, pulled out and cleaned the gas grill, and hooked up the propane tank. Turned it on and it fired up right away - so that's good to go. We then put together a new floor lamp for the sun room, I installed a humidity/temperature monitor in the new 3 season room so I can see those stats throughout the year, and mowed the front lawn and watered all the various plants. It's a lot of work but I am finding that I actually enjoy it. I think tomorrow I might work on the toy chest, but maybe if we can get up early enough, maybe get in some ocean air.


08:56 AM EST [Link] Morning Thankfullness [comments: 0]
I like sitting outside on the new patio area, reading my books, drinking coffee, and listening and catching glimpses of the suburban wildlife, early in the morning. It's so quiet, peaceful, and the air is cool. Watching the little rabbit cool himself in the tufts of grass along the morning dew, seeing the Blue Jays collect food for it's cawing little one up in a tree branch overhead, spying a chipmunk run around the clumps of foxglove playfully. It's times like this that I feel extremely lucky.

Remember how a few days ago I said I had to go back and forth in the Exchange Android app to get messages to display? Well, they pushed an update out last night, and once I installed it, the messages all display properly now! Yay! I know you were all dying to know.

It takes me about a half hour to water everything around here now, but I actually like doing it. Surprisingly, although there are rabbits all over this place, they don't seem to be chomping on anything from the raised boxes. In fact, I need to cut the lettuce down AGAIN. We have too much lettuce!

08:09 AM EST [Link] Giving myself Kudos/Free Libs [comments: 0]
Renaissance man! Feeling rather proud of myself, between voraciously reading all manners of books (finished the one about the dragonfish trade and the father with alzheimer's which was really sad and made me cry), learning to prep and cooking, gardening, landscaping a little bit, learning about flora and fauna, riding my bike back and forth (kind of feeling a bit more buff, with the riding and lugging dirt and mulch around!), learning decor, trying to take better photographs of interesting subjects, etc etc. I even set up the big digitizer at work today for an upcoming project (something I haven't touched in years since it only runs through an obsolete serial port).

lib2016s (99k image)I was able to check out one of those free library housing on the side of the road last weekend before, but it didn't have any books I was interested in. I'll try some other ones nearby soon to see what's in there. Maybe tonight if I have a chance. There's about three within a 10 minute bike ride from my house - especially close to Tufts. Probably more because I don't think the map is listing them all.

Update: Biking home I decided to take a different route to hit two of these libraries. The first seemed to have a bunch of religious texts so I didn't find anything interesting there, but the second one was put together pretty nicely (the carpentry, decorations, and all) and seemed to have much more palatable selections to my taste. I ended up taking a little book printed in 1978 about a day in the life of a lobster man of Chatham, Massachusetts. I finished it already - it was pretty short, but brought memories to my mind of when LD and I hang down at the Fish Pier there where we first see seals. When I swing back there I'll have to drop off one of my own books from my collection.

I noticed one more location on my map that is pretty close to my house, so I decided to take a quick trip up to see that one was well. This one is crazily decorated and the accompanying front yard is loaded with all kinds of weird stuff strewn about in a artistic pattern of untidiness. I took a picture of it and am including it in this entry, but none of the books in there interested me either.

08:10 PM EST [Link] Landscaping 101 [comments: 1]
ownlandscaping (233k image)

Got to do some of my own landscaping today. As a father's day gift (I'm a cat-daddy after all) LD bought me some plants that I think would accentuate the new patio area. Got them, added the dirt, mulch, watering, etc, and here's the result thus far. Also planted a bunch more stuff in the other side of the yard but is not viewable in this picture. And we also planted a couple things in some more containers, some adorning the patio area as well. It was a little bit of sweat but I feel good and I think the result is worth it. Cool to work with nature once in a while....

I guess I was a little bit inspired by visiting the town's animal control officer this morning, as we were invited to see his pet goats a while back. Finally got the chance - he's amazing. He practically has his own farm, there's so many animals, chickens (which he gave us some fresh eggs and they look and smell amazing as cooked), dogs, rabbits, bees, etc. etc. Amazing garden too. Maybe someday we'll be at that level, but for now, I'm pretty happy with what we've taken on so far. And I'm constantly trying to educate myself about new things to help this place look it's best.

This week I'll have ridden the bike everyday except Monday back and forth to work. Score!

Finally sort of got Microsoft Exchange setup on my android phone using their app. It does this weird thing where it'll display email sender and headers and the first few words preview but clicking on the message a lot of times is blank. But I've discovered if I get out of the message and then back in and then out and then in etc, etc, a few times it does display. Very strange. This all started because I wanted to be able to see a shared mailbox I use in the app but I can't figure that out, however I did figure out how to add it to the web app which I haven't been able to figure out for a year and a half. Apparently if you just go to "https://webmail server address" / "shared mailbox name email address", then enter your username and password it loads it up just fine. This is awesome for me, but it would be better in the app. Well, baby steps, this is the farthest I ever got!

Here's another image from last Sunday - wish I could go back there. You might be able to see in the ocean a sailboat and a surfer treading the waves. Seems like a crazy place to surf with all those huge rocks around. I'm sure someone's dashed their heads on them before.

In keeping up with my monthly reading pursuits I have 4 new books I have in my possession that I'm going to try to finish by month's end:
The Theft of Memory - Losing My Father One Day at a Time (sounded like a good read)
SPQR - A History of Ancient Rome (getting my toga on for this one)
The Dragon Behind the Glass: A True Story of Power, Obsession, and the World's Most Coveted Fish (I've kept bot fresh and salt water aquariums but never an arowana).
and
Lost Among the Birds: Accidentally Finding Myself in One Very Big Year. (I like birds and biographies)

Today's day trip with some sights and shots we took this afternoon. Had a nice lunch at a place called Spain of Narragansett. Picked up some ore plants, some Coleus. Had a Rose-colored grosbeak visit the feeder today this afternoon (first time I'd ever seen one of those there) but by the time I got there to snap, there were just baby robins, cardinals, and sparrows. Darn. Did pick a boatload of lettuce from the raised bed garden - that's getting crazy, everything seems to be growing so well!

Checked out Art in the Park in the Town Common this morning. Not so much to see what was on display, but more so to get ideas into how to display my own stuff. Picking up some tips! I think some of my stuff will look killer printed nicely and put into nice display frames. Also picked up a nice light pink colored hydrangea which will be planted in a special place! Off to a graduation party later this afternoon!

11:23 AM EST [Link] 1856 [comments: 1]
The house I grew up in was built in 1856. 160 years ago! And at times, it seems like it - we have to get some ancient pipes in the cellar upgraded soon before something really bad happens, and my grandfather always said it was the place that Jack built, because everything in the place seems not to any particular standard and everything is an odd measurement, (just try finding a door that will fit into some of the doorways) but my grandmother loved it and it's still standing so there's something really neat about that. Not to mention all the memories. Anyways, I thought it would be interesting to look up what else happened in the year that the house was built, so here it is:

Franklin Pierce was President. Lots of discussion and events regarding slavery in Kansas (which was still just a territory at this point in time -The Sack of Lawrence, Kansas). Seton Hall University was founded. Cullen Whipple patents a machine for making screws. The Great Train Wreck of 1856 between Camp Hill and Fort Washington, Pennsylvania killed over 60 people. Borax discovered. Oh! And Sigmund Freud and Nikola Tesla were born!

Another shot from the garden before I left for work this morning. I wasn't going to post this but, what the hell...This is called a Spider-wort but I've heard it also called 4 o'clocks because they open in the morning but around 4 o'clock in the afternoon they close up to reopen again the next day.

07:29 PM EST [Link] Plant Nite [comments: 0]
I've been wanting to do a Paint Nite for a while, but I think I'd want to do this even more!

Plant Nite. Could be a fun activity with a group of friends too! Who's in?

Can't get enough of Minot I guess, ordered a paperback to read regarding the Light even though I've already read everything online that I could find. Lover's Light: The History of Minot's Ledge Lighthouse. For some reason I find this particular lighthouse fascinating.
