Nulo Freestyle Trainers Review

Happy Saturday to you.  While we were gone, a box was delivered for Hunter that contained his latest item from Chewy.  As a #Chewy Influencer, he loves getting these treat every month and although he had to wait for this month's, he was just as excited.  We love this program and how it allows us to try different treats and foods, before we purchase them.  I can tell you that these training treats are the perfect size for a small dog and not only do I give them to him as a treat, but also will add one or two to his kibble.  Hunter loves these treats and we would rate them a 10 start.  We'll definitely be buying them when we run out.

Bath, Maine

Hello friends! Once again I want to share some of our trip with you. After we finished touring the Maritime Museum, we toured the Donnell House and then drove around some of Bath's coastline. I hope you enjoy. Here I am with my dearest friend Barb in front of the Victorian Home from the late 1800's.





Seeing the homes of the coast, make me want to head back there~however, I know winter will hit before too long and I don't want to face one of Maine's winters.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Maine Maritime Museum

Can you believe it is already Thursday? Where do the days go? I can tell you exactly where mine have gone-two days to the gym, three days walking+today, quilting groups, blogging, reading, cooking, errands etc.
Onto our trip:  One of the highlights for the guys on our trip was going to the Maine Maritime Museum.  Hubby grew up sailing and loves anything to do with the water and Jim was in the Navy.  Both guys loved the exhibits and educational lectures.   The grounds house a historic Mill and Joiner Shoppe as well as the Donnell House, a Victorian home that the famous shipbuilding families lived in 1896.  I'll show that tomorrow.

 This is the largest historic schooner from 1909, Wyoming that is being restored.  It hauled coal, had six masts, each reaching 177 feet.  She sank in 1924 off of Massachusetts during a storm.
We spent about 3.5 hrs touring and enjoying the sites. We had a beautiful day and that made it wonderful.  Speaking of wonderful, we are enjoying warm days here in northern Colorado.
I hope you have a incredible Thursday.

Greetings! It would seem that our photos are out of order, but I know that you might enjoy them anyway. Seeing them takes me back to New England and I can't begin to explain how much we love the charm of the different states. I've said if hubby and I were younger and snow wasn't an issue, I imagine we could have easily decided to live in Maine. Here we are again in Bath, a quaint village that caters to tourists.

We also thoroughly enjoyed Longfellow's home in Portland.
Of course you know I'd have a photo of an antique quilt-it was beautiful.  All of the furniture, clothing, photos and painting were all original to the home.
I can just picture Henry or his sister at this desk.
The next photo was taken at Castle Tucker in Wiscasset, Maine.  We love seeing mansions from the 1800's.  The furniture in this house was also original.
This bill is hard to read, but the total amount was very high for the time period.
Loved this bureau.  I believe the rocking chair was from the late 1800's.
This Singer is an earlier model than I have-it was fun to see.
Loved the kitchen!
I'll have more to share tomorrow, I hope you've enjoyed our tour.
Blessings~

Happy Tuesday to you. As I started gathering photos to share this morning, I realized I have a lot more on my phone too~so it may take a couple of days. We started out going to Albacore Park in Portsmouth NH to see the first modern submarine built, used for testing and observation.   It was quite interesting, but I can say I wouldn't enjoy living on one.  Hubby loves photography and takes lots of great shots-I loved this lantern. Our second stop was to this quilt store; not just any quilt store but one that the owner sells antique quilts. Hubby actually told me I could buy one, but nothing stuck my fancy.


We drove through wonderful towns and neighborhoods and had lunch at Bath; we loved it!


I am off to the Fig Leaf club this morning and need to get ready.  Our weather is back to fantastic, it will be in the 70's today.  I hope you have a great day!
Hugs,
Noreen

The Tastes of New England

Good Afternoon to you! As you know, when traveling to an area that is new and exciting, part of the adventure is the food. While this was our 3rd trip to New England, we were still anxious to get back and enjoy some seafood. We enjoyed some really good meals at nice restaurants, some really good meals at little diners and also some meals at places we would not go back to- for reasons of sanitary concerns. I'm choosing to share the great meals with you. Here we are in Bar Harbor, ME; I can't recall the name of the restaurant-but suffice to say it was excellent.  Hubby loved the Lobster Roll and I enjoyed Ahi.
Here is a dinner we had in Booth Bay; it was so good-I had the poached salmon while hubby enjoyed a burger.

I ate salads a good part of the trip, both for lunch and dinner; I did splurge on a couple of dinners-such a treat.  I wish I would have chosen to have the lobster roll on lettuce, because by the time I figured that out I didn't see it offered and was so disappointed.  We also enjoyed some blueberry pie and desserts-but I didn't partake of the crust.  Saturday night we went out to dinner-I know what you are thinking-that we just got home from a trip, but hubby insisted and the bottom two dishes are what we had.  Hubby enjoyed a Fried Cod with lump crab meat on it, while I had Scallops and Prawns-one of my favorites.
We are still trying to organize our photos of the trip and hope to get them up tomorrow and Wednesday.  I came home ready to just stay home and sew, but our days are getting busy.  This morning hubby had a doctor appointment with a back specialist(good news was that he was just referred to a Physical Therapist), then ran to the Sprint store to get him  a new phone-didn't wait because of the long line, then came home and changed for the gym.  We had a good workout and I'm hoping to walk with one of my gals later.  Yesterday I had planned to sew all day, but got caught up on the computer watching all the new info on the fires in Santa Rosa and catching up on blogs.
I hope you had a great weekend and a good day so far.
Blessings to you!

There’s No Place Like Home

Good Morning to you! I am happy to say we are at Logan Airport in Boston and will head home today. We had a wonderful time with our dear friends until Monday when we heard about the wild fires in their city, also our old home town. It was a rough few days and as everyone can imagine they were under so much stress, not knowing if they’d have a home to go back to. It looked better Tuesday, but yesterday the fire was close to our old neighborhood. Thankfully a back fire was lit and seemed to stop the fire. Time will tell; many prayers are going up for the entire city and county. We will anxiously await word from them tonight or tomorrow.  I am so thankful for the super tanker from Colorado Springs that headed out there.  One of the things I realized again while watching them go through this, is the need for an emergency plan in place before a disaster occurs. So we will again set up a plan once we are home. I don’t think wild fires are our main concern, probably more blizzards and floods.
I hope you’ve had a good week and reflect on your blessings; disasters can happen in a split second.
Today I’m smiling and so thankful!
