Life is to be Lived

As Sunday evening draws to a close one week ends and another on the verge of beginning. Time is a peculiar thing. We complain that we don’t have enough yet we wish the days past longing for the weekend. How did you spend your weekend? Did you indulge? Did you make your heart sing? Did you write a blog post for Share Your World or Jakesprinter Landscape Challenge? I did a few of all these things.

Date Night on Friday with my favorite guy at one of our favorite places to eat called the Bridge in Westerly RI. Good food, cheap beer and live music.

On Saturday I was blessed to get a new office chair and the re-gifting of a computer monitor for my home office. Cooked a wonderful meal at home and shared it with 3 of my favorite guys, hubby Steven, son Joshua and stepson Jeremy. Good food and good company.

Sunday morning found me in my house of worship enjoying the presence of the Lord. Afterward we went to lunch with Steven’s daughter Christina and our granddaughter Piper.

Having sufficiently dined we headed home to change into some warmer clothes, get Haley and go for a walk along the river.

It was hard to keep the dog from going nuts when the four deer arrived on the scene. I thought this one was going to run right into me.

Below you see the Mohegan Sun Casino towering above the tree line. Looking at it from the sky it has the appearance of an arrow. It is a beautiful building inside and out.

Norwich is a river community with many old factories such as the one pictured below.

This railroad has plates dating 1923. Pretty cool in my opinion.

These old rail ties are just laying around. Wonder what the purpose is now?

In the water is the remnants of an old boat.

The walk was nice. Beautiful, crisp day as you can see. When I got home I made a movie with the photo’s I snapped of Piper(the red headed cutie) and will post it to Facebook for her Great Granny to see; I know she will enjoy it.

Hope that you had a great weekend.

  1. I love all your photos! It really shows you all had a great time. Living in the city made me realize that I miss the open spaces that I only found in abundance in the US. I stay in Virginia Beach when I am overseas and it made me miss the place and the people there a LOT!

    • Thanks for the comment. Sometimes we totally lose sight of the beauty in places so close to home. City living is very different but has its own special feel and places. Central Park in NYC is such an enchanting place.

      • I missed Central Park when I went to NYC. Just stayed there for a day going around Manhattan, the Rock, the Cathedral,etc and then went back to Virginia Beach.

        I live in the Philippines but have to go back to the US sometime soon and hope to finally see Central Park!
