Frankles Visits the Dragons


 The Frankles spent a couple days with us and she wanted to spend some time visiting with the dragons.  I love watching her ‘interact’ with them.  Hahaha! Maleficent is a little taller! She wanted to play with the one that didn’t have sharp edges and she was very careful.  We visited with all the dragons – I just… Continue Reading

In Our Yard This Week


 Since moving to Maine, we have found all sorts of wildlife in our yard. Moose, bears, deer, groundhogs, beavers, otter, raccoons, porcupines, coyotes, fox – perhaps others, those are what I recall.  We found this little guy yesterday. We believe he is some type of hawk. Too young to fly yet, still fluffy and fuzzy. And no mama… Continue Reading

Time With the Frankles


 Started the morning off with breakfast at Grammy’s Country Inn. Training some new cooks – they need to learn a little quicker. But the whipped cream was awesome! The Frankles approved the cream for sure! Blueberry pancake with blueberries and cream on top! Yummy! No art today. We are busy being a kitty. Art again tomorrow. … Continue Reading

Where is Stephen King?


 Yesterday we expected it to snow all day. In fact, we expected it to snow through today. So what did we do? Mark decided we needed to go two hours away – to Bangor, Maine.  We started the morning off at our local diner. Grammy’s Country Inn is just a short drive from our house…. Continue Reading

Beautiful Mama Dragon!

Seriously, I do!  Ina Sonnenmoser is one of the friends I collaborated with on the Tangle It! Book Series. Well, she… Continue Reading

Still Snowing???


 It has been a heck of a week in Maine. Well, all up and down the east side of the country really.  In the space of six hours we got right at two feet of snow. It was snowing so hard it was difficult to plow and stay ahead of it.  Then, just because it… Continue Reading

New Dragon from Mystic Reflections


 Check out this sweet little guy! A friend sent me a link to an Etsy shop for Mystic Reflections and in her shop I found this dragon that I just had to have! Cause – dragon!  He doesn’t have a name yet.  This dapper little fellow is about 2 1/2 inches tall.  What should I name him?… Continue Reading

Our Week in Pictures


 With all the rain in Texas with Hurricane Harvey and all the rain starting in Florida with Hurricane Irma, our little paradise here in Maine wasn’t going to be left out. Enter stage right – rain, rain, and more rain. Above photo was this morning in Houlton. Our ‘real’ town. So much fun doing the dump… Continue Reading

Cool Find Yesterday


 Yesterday we were out driving, looking for some waterfalls that we never found. But we did find this awesome thing hanging in a tree. It was about the size of a basketball, head level if we had been walking. I’ve never seen one of these before. The best we could guess is it’s a wasp nest – possibly…. Continue Reading

This Week In Maine


My son Jason is here to visit for the week. Bobbie and Frankie are already up here, working and waiting to close on the new house. It was nice to be able to show Jason some of our countryside – without snow. Yes, it’s beautiful in winter, but Maine is also gorgeous in the summertime. This… Continue Reading
