I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. My family had a great time this Christmas; the little ones entertained us quite nicely. Children have an uncanny ability of making everything more cheerful. I guess seeing things through their eyes brings us back to when we were that age. It’s awesome! (more…)
I would like to wish everyone a beautiful Christmas. May it be full of love, laughter and joy. I love that Christmas feeling — the way total strangers smile at each other and extend their greetings. Even though it’s a crazy and frantic time, Christmas makes my heart feel good. I love seeing the little ones trying so hard to be good, knowing that not only is Santa watching but so is that little red elf on the shelf. (more…)
The East End is orange, with pumpkins everywhere! The weather feels so nice, along with the smell of the leaves, crispy apples, etc. Enjoy! (more…)
Brrr! I actually wore shoes Sunday morning. That didn’t last long, but it was chilly!
Get ready for lots of orange as the arrival of pumpkins is right around the corner. Good luck, everyone! (more…)
Summer is not over! There are still a few more “official” weeks left; you just need to get out and enjoy it. Get going; the beach isn’t going anywhere. (more…)
So, it’s August. How did this happen already? Anyway, August brings yummy tomatoes and they are here! Eggplant is also making its presence known. There’s lots of good stuff from your local farmers. (more…)

I hope all’s well with everyone as we enjoy this rather cool summer. I love it!
Baiting Hollow Congregational Church’s annual chicken barbecue will take place Saturday, Aug. 2. If you’ve never gone, you should. Chicken with all the trimmings will make you content. Takeout will be available. The rain date is Aug. 3 but hopefully that won’t be needed. Enjoy! (more…)
Local strawberries from last May. (Credit: Katharine Schroeder, file)
Happy summer! May it go very, very slow and be a nice, balmy 80 degrees or so.
If you didn’t get any strawberries yet you may still have a few days, but beware, they’re almost gone. As one tasty fruit leaves, something else takes its place. Peas, zucchini and squash have arrived and on the near horizon will be sweet corn. (more…)
