Random week in photos

It really should be random photos from this week, but given the weeks are fairly random nowadays I figure its okay to mix it up.

Clockwise from upper left. 1. Carlson Orchards in Harvard MA. A stones throw away with a little practice. They have a fine section of hard ciders. Worth a visit when this dan flu move on. 2. Chicken, broccoli, Alfredo pizza, just like you get at Evviva Trattoria…but better and without the bad acustics. 3. Red Velvet cup cakes we made yesterday…yum. 4. Harley and Koda ready to jump on some unsuspecting squirrel at the Harvard Public Library. It’s a cool building and one worth visiting. 5. Strange tree we found while walking the dogs. It’s like an upside down question mark. 6. Miss Planthead looking rather cool on the corner of our island.

TGIF

That was a week….I’d like to sleep in but the tile guy is coming over for (hopefully) the last time in the am.

The General Store never looked better.

Koda chilling on the Green.

Foggy morning from our bedroom window.

Our mosquito attraction tool….aka oversized sodium light. To be honest compared to carry me away Groton mosquitos we have very few here.

Cool anniversary gifts

Jess gave me a cool book; Living the Airstreams Life by Karen Fleet.

She also gave me a Cabela’s gift card…ya.

Cousin Richie sent up his water bottle, sock and Twizzler collection…very cool.

Random weekend photos

Just chilling

JMan and I went to a toy train show. Brought back memories of my own set from years ago.

The details are simply incredible. If this what the road show sets look like I bet the permanent home sets are truly wonderful.

Overpass 1.

Overpass 2.

Just for fun. Koda got himself a winter suit.

Random photos

Top left: Flag day at JMans school and I happened to park in front of this one.

Top right: Jess found this beauty and its complete with horns.

Bottom left: Your tour guides at the self check out lane in Lowe’s.

Center right: The great fence of Groton. In an effort to contain our new ball of hair GMan and I did a little fencing. You can thank Jimmy for this one. All those years above on Clonown Road mending gaps finally paid off 😛.

Bottom right: The reason my hair will finally fall out..as it can’t get that much grayer.

Random Ireland photos – 6

It's a grand Irish summer day. Blue skies and a high of 56F. Here's a view out outlet hotel window. Yes, I stood on the furniture, reckon they own me for the lack of parking.

I call this one "Cork roofs".

Here's a shot of the massive parking lot. I stand corrected, it has 21 spots, that's for 101 rooms! Good ratio if you're a room, bad if you're a car.

Various photos of Cork City.

Yes, the coffee is exactly the same!

Oliver Plunkett Street is one on the main shopping places and it's pedestrian only.

We did a bit of shopping and headed north.

Along the way we went to the Devils Bit. Here's a link to read all about it. We were unprepared to hike so a photo will have to do.

Ireland is littered with stone towers. This one is down the road from the Devils Bit.

Here's a really odd flavored snack food. For those who don't know prawns are shrimps stateside…..and no, I did not sample them.

Back at our home away from home we made ice cream with the kids.
