come along with me,hurry before the sun sets…


Enjoying the beauty of Lake George in the Adirondacks for the evening.
The 4th of July. It was not the sunniest of days, but the sky and the clouds were just beautiful. The air was heavy with humidity, covering the landscape with its moist gauze. As the sun set, and we waited for the fireworks to begin the lake was tinted pink. There is quite an air of commercialism down in the Village; not my kinda scene; but for those looking for a souvenir, a tee shirt, or other kitschy item there were many shops to choose from. I prefer the serene rocky outcroppings,the old style Adirondack camps, distant mountain views,and pine covered hills.
We have hiked nearby on several occasions, you can see the lake from our Mountain top view.

View from the top.

I love to travel, to see new and different things. Yet, I am never too keen on being away from the farm for too long. A day trip sometimes fits the bill perfectly. I have some views for you….

I think I was being a little heavy handed with the photographs so I’ve inserted a slideshow…

I hope you had an enjoyable holiday; stay cool. It’s a hot one.

Happy Birthday America!


July 4th!

America celebrates. Freedom. Independence.

There are family gatherings, picnic, parades and fireworks.

We remember.

The “land of the free and the home of the brave”.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people.

Through the blogging world and www ; I love that we are meeting,learning about,and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.

Let’s celebrate together this Fourth of July.

Happy Birthday, America!

I saw God riding a bike today!


I just had to share a little story with you this morning.

My neighbor ( you may have seen him in photos through out my blog) attends Sunday Mass with his Grammy. As they were leaving the service one Sunday Morning, being one of the last to leave, Father Tom jokingly quipped, “Hey, “Grammy” you have me blocked in ~ you know I like to head outta here as fast as possible”.

As “Grammy” buckled Andrew into his car seat , he was quietly thinking. “Grammy” settled herself into the car, buckled her belt, started the engine, as Andrew began to talk…”Hey, ‘Grammy’, was that God?”
With a warm smile and (silent giggles), Grammy answered; “No, Andrew, that’s Father Tom, he runs the church”.
“Oh” was all he said in reply.

Later in the week, Grammy was asked to gather Andrew from his babysitter. The two chatted for a few moments before announcing, “Hey, Grammy, I saw God riding his bike today!”

Aah, Andrew! I am blessed to know you.

Be well,
Jess
