gbheron2013 (146k image)

Today's a throwback picture to a Great Blue Heron I sighted in Wellesley waiting for LD a few years back.It's probably the closest I've ever been able to get to one of these creatures yet. It was just skulking around this little pond area looking for food. I don't think it got any that particular day though. In other news, going to a concert tomorrow night (more details to follow as it happens) and maybe a beach day on Sunday? I guess all that ocean air last week got to me.

At lunchtime today I went for a walk over by the Fresh Pond Reservation. I hadn't been there in decades. While walking a bit through Lusitania Meadow, I came upon two monarch butterflies doing some type of dance and chasing each other - was pretty cool to watch actually. I happened to pick this trail because of the name (Lusitania is the ancient name of Portugal, still used as the name of it in modern poetry, hey, my ancestry). In the future I'm going to need to explore this area further.

07:03 AM EST [Link] Dayful Oddities [comments: 0]
I've been testing out those 45s we got up at the antique store in NH and I'm pleased to say that they seem to be in perfect condition - not one scratch. Amazing! However, I didn't realize that the one 45 that LD picked out from Captain and Tennille was the Spanish lyrics version. That will be interesting to hear. We also picked up our professionally framed wall rug of Angel and Oreo and hung it in the sunroom. It came out really well!

Yesterday we grilled with some steak tips and salmon and veggies that we grew in the yard for dinner using these new skewers I got as one of my birthday presents. It came out great! Somehow grilling items seems to make the flavors pop much better. Then as the night wore on we (well, really I) wanted to watch this tv show about the Son of Sam where they actually talk to that nut today. Unfortunately the part that most people want to hear, why he did it, he wouldn't talk about - so that was basically a waste of an hour.

I mentioned a couple days ago how a lot of times we'll just be cruising around and something will catch our eye. It's not always the scenic stuff that I see but also the oddities. Here are two examples from our recent travels.

A strange cat like structure built out of huge hay bales in the driveway of some private residence.

weirdos02 (97k image)
A place where the owner apparently collects all manners of odd things, including old buildings, such as this somewhat dilapidated train station. I noticed it as we were driving by, I said like "Whoa! Is that a train station in the middle of a lawn? How did it get there?" I especially liked the broken down wagon out front. Apparently after doing some digging the owner was a collector of everything - this was a place those Pickers would go I am sure. Collector? Hoarder? The place is somewhat of a museum although it's been closed for over a year - the kids are trying to turn in into a wedding venue. Another example of things we see on the road that requires a double take or worth taking a shot of. You can actually have your wedding photo shoots here - if you like having dilapidated buildings in the backgrounds of your photos - really weird.

07:36 PM EST [Link] KBP Adventures [comments: 0]
Here's just a small sampling of some pictures from the last two days. I'l; add to this entry with some text for each photo because there's a story behind each one. Also today, we made our first real watercolor painting.

kbp810_01 (34k image)kbp810_02 (35k image)

Great location to see various sailing ships and sloops pass by. The picture on the right is a private residence that supposedly was used in the opening shots of the television show 'Dark Shadows' although I could not really find any information that confirms that. In any case, it must have amazing views.

kbp810_03 (19k image)kbp810_04 (33k image)

Another shot of a sailing vessel, this time some sort of three masted boat. I kind of have a thing for boats, I'm not sure why. Anyways I thought it looked kinda cool sailing into the horizon and the light at this particular time makes it looked bathed in a white glow, like they are sailing into a mysterious yet pleasurable place. Pic on the right is where we chilled out! Who wouldn't like waking up to this view?

kbp810_05 (39k image)kbp810_06 (41k image)

These two shots were taken just before sunrise, so I had to get up and out there really early, and that was not easy (thankfully LD nudged me!), but sometimes that what you have to do! The quiet except for the lapping of the waves is really quite stunning.

kbp810_07 (43k image)kbp810_08 (42k image)

So this particular morning, the place was having a watercolor class on the front lawn facing the ocean for anyone willing to try, so we said what the hell and did it. I will say at first I wasn't really pleased with my painting but over time it's grown on me. I actually learned quite a bit, about form, but also watercolor painting techniques in general. It is actually a quite forgiving medium, but I don't think it really meshes with my somewhat analytical mind. It's more about generalities and I'm a bit more detail oriented in that way. But that's kind of the point I suppose - it's not about the details but about the feeling of the scene - something I need to learn to let go at times so I can better appreciate what there is to offer me. However, we did find it extremely relaxing and couldn't believe that 3 hours went by so quickly. You don't even notice the time as your brushing over your painting, with water, and colors, and just going with the flow. We really did have a lot of fun with that. Pic on the right is just another boat with some pretty flowers in the foreground This is from the town center - a very busy yet picturesque location where in olden days much shipbuilding occurred.

If you'd like to get a better look at some of these pictures you can see them (along with some others) on my Insta feed for now.

08:35 AM EST [Link] Goat Yoga [comments: 0]
goatyoga (81k image)What an exciting day! You can't beat goat yoga with baby goats. On the way there we would pass various historical markers that I tried to read but LD would drive past them and I couldn't make them out. There's not much else up to do that way that would interest us. We did stop in an antique shop and got some more 45s for the jukebox though - we'll have to check them out to see if they play ok but they were so cheap figured it was worth a shot. Oh, anyways, back to goat yoga! The place is really cool as they are certainly not stingy with the baby goats - I believe there were 7 or 8 of them that would go around and do their thing. Some of them took naps for a while while the class was going on - but eventually they were all up and about. Basically everyone got as much goat time as they wanted, especially at the end, I was somewhat amazed that I could actually do most of the yoga poses having never done it before. But let's be honest - it's all about the goats and not the yoga. I would recommend this - they're really cool. For the evening we're staying at Garrison Inn, a historic property in Newburyport. It's basically a former estate named after gentleman from the area who published the Liberator - a staunch supporter of emancipation. It's very quaint and nice actually.

pointjudith05 (130k image)

We had thought of going to the Caturday celebration on the Common this morning but we watched too many Datelines last night and decided to sleep in instead, so that didn't happen. We ended up going to some stores today and I ended up getting some men's activewear for the goat yoga after all. We also picked up some paint (a green to match the house) to paint the wood shed with which should be happening soon. Also picked up some USB sticks for LD and I - mostly for our mp3/iTunes music for the cars (especially hers since it doesn't have a CD player).I also picked up some pens with a writing width of 1.4mm. Most pens are 0.7 but I really like a thick line when I'm writing so I had to pop on those. For dinner tonight we're having leftovers from yesterday that we got at an awesome Greek restaurant down by the Norwood airport. We always forget about that place but the food is phenomenal. Basically just been getting ready to hit the road and enjoy some vacation R&R. Oh, the pic above is from Point Judith in Rhode Island but is from last year. I just felt like putting it up again, Sunday Feels and all...

NSqVibes (232k image)

Just finished putting together these carpeted stairs for the cat so he can get up on the bed better - sucks to get old and all. The directions were in Japanese but luckily I didn't need them as the graphic was enough for me to figure it out. Speaking of said cat, he'll be going to the vet later this afternoon and I suspect he will not be such a happy camper.

I also mowed the lawn which was badly needed, and after taking an assessment of the garden plots it would appear that we have some eggplants growing along with some cucumber (we already ate one of those last week), squash, and the usual assortment of tomatoes. The brussel sprouts have been growing for months but are not appearing to actually be producing any brussel sprouts. Guess we wont be trying those anymore, just as well, as they're nasty to eat anyway (in least, in my humble opinion). Also, in the back some star gazer lilies have decided to open up which is strange because those aren't what they were supposed to be. LD doesn't even remember us planting them, but I do.

Update: Well, I biked outta here before the deluge so I didn't get wet so that rocked. Headed out to Kendall, managed to find a parking spot pretty much out front across the street from the restaurant and just as we got inside, it poured like a mother. Luck again! And when we left it was just a drizzle so it all worked out rather nicely and I enjoyed my dinner meal. Remind me however, to never, drive around Kendall Square at 5 pm - the place is a zoo.

Also, I got goat yoga coming up and I still don't have any yoga pants for the occasion! Oh well, guess it's the old college sweatpants for me!

Yesterday I started playing around with altering tones on some of my photos. I have a long way to go but I think it kinda made this shot look cool. Basically it's a lot of experimentation and deciding on what you think looks good. It's supposed to rain this afternoon but I took the bike in anyway - taking a chance but in the end, so what, it's only water. Also my mom is treating me to dinner tonight for my birthday, which is actually next week (since I'll be away on a much needed vacation). I'm thinking seafood!

Went for a bit of a history stroll last night around the neighborhood and learned an interesting trivia tidbit. The Charles Williams, Jr. House located on Arlington Street, Somerville, is the location of the first residential telephone line. The phone inside the house connected to Mr. Williams' office at 109 Court Street in Boston, about 3 miles away. These two properties had the first telephone numbers - 1 & 2. And it happened right here, in my hometown. Kinda neat.

Bcommon728 (161k image)

It was a pretty fun filled weekend, I really enjoyed myself. To quickly recap, on Friday afternoon I took in many Boston sights and took a lot of shots, some which I might put up as the days go on, pretty much just shot anything, nothing in particular, pretty random stuff. Then in the early evening, LD and I took in Shakespeare in the Park's take on Romeo and Juliet. The vibe was amazing, the weather was pleasant, and the show itself was superb. I bought a shirt and got a "Culture Fan" souvenir. We hadn't been to a showing like this in 7 or 8 years. We had our beach chairs this time, there's no way we could sit on the ground like last time. Our bodies just aren't built for that anymore. Anyways, you won't be disappointed checking it out but it's gone by the end of this week, so you only have a few more days.

Saturday was more or less a rest day, which was quite nice and needed (I believe we ended up watching a bunch of Scandal Made Me Famous episodes, Lorena Bobbitt, Pam Smart, Tonya Harding, etc. Needless to say, I was riveted!) and then last night went and saw a showing of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the classic film from 1982 on the big screen. Hard to believe it's been 35 years! We hadn't seen the film in a long while, it was quite a treat and really cool to see it on a theatre screen again. M&M were able to get tickets and ended up joining us, so that's always fun.

All these activities must have caught up to me because I overslept this morning and had to book to make into work on time. Thankfully I did, however.

Spent yesterday all day in Boston from 9 am til 10 pm. Basically just walking and photographing lots of sights from the Common, to Beacon Hill, the North End, to all along the Harborwalk from Battery to Fan Pier, the Financial District, Public Gardens, a nice dinner at Blu and culminating in a showing of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet at the Common. In all I took over 200 pictures from the day - I'll try to post some of the better ones on this entry as the weekend progresses so keep checking back if you're interested.

Here's one so far, I call it "Rise!" I especially like the bird soaring into the sky along with it. This is from thr Financial District of town.

I do it for some exercise and gas saving, but mostly because I find that it's been clearing my mind. I find it good for my mental health. I find it has this effect of clearing my mind.

For dinner we decided to hot some new place in Plymouth in the Manomet part of town (not near the harbor) that I saw on tv called 42 degrees North. The food there was amazing - highly recommend. I got the lobster ravioli at they were awesome tasting but every dish we saw come out of the kitchen looked spectacular.

Needless to say, it was quite a wonderful day!

1stencsunset_s (72k image)

Here's a shot from the archives from a Cape stay this time last year. First Encounter Beach in Eastham, Mass. So called because in 1620 the Pilgrims and Native americans first met. It wasn't a happy meeting. The natives had previously had some bad experiences with Europeans. The Pilgrims who arrived on the ship "Mayflower" stole some corn and robbed some graves. At First Encounter Beach, the natives responded to the newcomers by firing a few arrows into their camp. The Pilgrims decided to move on to Plymouth...

I really like the way this shot came out but what you can't see is that as I was waiting for the right moment to take the shot, I was getting eaten alive by mosquitos. Still, looking back now, it was totally worth it!

and also maybe the Plant-Nite events. Instead we're going to see dinner and a movie (most likely the new Spidey).

Some cool things coming up though: Going to see Fast Times at Ridgemont High on the big screen, speaking of movies, to celebrate its 35th anniversary! Possibly plan on seeing Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare in the Park Boston Common, and seeing a Sox game, among some other things.

Taking my mom into the hospital her colonoscopy appt on Monday - wish us luck!

Could have been worse, but it's still such a pain when it does happen, although thankfully rarely.

Planning on finishing mulching the front later this afternoon, and then that will be all done. Sucks to go back to the grind tomorrow. Feels like I've been away forever.

Let's go kayaking!

Spent the early afternoon taking a daytrip down to Scituate for lunch and to catch some breezy air down by the harbor. Later on, came upon some conservation land and explored some trails there.

I finally got a hold of a chainsaw and went to town this morning cutting down the huge tree limbs that fell in the back yard over the last couple of months. Had it for a while but needed to run into Home Depot to get a proper extension cord to plug into the thing. (It's an electric one - small but perfect for this type of work). Now I just need to tie/bag them branches up and get them out of here. I must say I was a little scared handling the thing since I'd never run one before but it's pretty easy once you get going and don't do anything stupid.

Oh, here's a pic of some Mr. Potato Heads from last weekend.
