My Life This Week


The prayer flags are flying and the forsythia blooming in my yard. This was taken on Sunday.




This is the part of our yard that faces the Connecticut River to the east. It's tranquil, beautiful and a perfect place to sit and contemplate, read, eat, drink and be merry. To the left, which is north, lies the eagles' nest. There is currently one baby in there. The other egg never hatched. With field glasses, we can see the nest and a blob of the eagle's fine head occasionally.

So, about my week. Firstly let me tell you that my weekend was splendid. On Saturday, W.P. and I went to our favorite breakfast/brunch spot in Amherst - The Lone Wolf. I had been craving a bagel with lox so I ordered their version which includes generous slices of red onion, sliced tomatoes and capers. Oh, was it good. Uuum.


Sunday night we went to see Lou Reed in Northampton. It was a beautiful night and we had ample time to walk around town and take in a sculpture exhibition in the park across the street from The Calvin Theater.

This week; this entire glorious week; I am on vacation. I have some projects I want to begin here at home. Some painting, raking and preparing of flower beds, window boxes and planters. W.P. has to be in Zurich on business all week, so I'm going to keep very busy. I have lunch planned with a friend later in the week and on Friday, I'll be spending the day in Boston with Supergirl II, who has only one class that day. We haven't finalized our plans yet but I think we're going to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art.

I am so diggin' this incredible weather, aren't you?

  3. What a fantastic post. It made me nostalgic for the days we would spend at my in-law's house on the CT River, here in CT. Eagles would soar above and we would sit and lazily watch the boats go by.

    It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend and have some interesting things planned for the week. Have fun! Boston is a blast!

  7. I love the prayer flags especially. We have a clothesline we don't use (we should), so I may use it for prayer flags.

    Just got your post: for awhile, those quizzes did me half left/right brain. That's because for 25 years I've worked in more of a left-brain environment. In recent years, the my work environment became more right-brained, and now that I'm actively pursuing my art, right-brainity is taking over. :)

  8. Juan: It's good to exercise the mind. I've tried to strengthen my left brain with things I enjoy. I think part of the issue is that I'm so strongly drawn to all that is right-brained. I think it's like anything else. Even atheletes. One athlete will take up a sport that makes his legs really strong and another may have incredibly strong shoulders. Although, I'll tell ya, I don't think my brain could ever participate in any left-brain marathons! ;-)
