200 Miles

Two hundred miles as of today. Not a big deal to most, but it was my season's goal given my wonky shoulder. Higher goal for next year.
The oars are painted and a pleasure to use.

Last Grape Standing

Went to the studio (always a plus) and started a new painting (an even bigger plus).
The Red Sox are in the process of losing their third in a row to the Yankees. I'd rather watch a third rate movie, and I am... a Keanu Reeves oeuvre.

Fall Plantings

Pulled the impatiens and replaced them with embryonic yellow mums. Hope these do better. The sweet potato vine is going gangbusters, so I left it.
195 miles on the river as of this morning. But who's counting?

Perfect Antidote

The last of the personal watermelon and perfect for this hot, humid and sticky day.

Cobb Salad a la Cape Cod

A lovely day on the Cape and lunch with friends. I like to eat my Cobb salad one row at a time, rather than mushing it together.

A "Personal" Watermelon

Im not sure I'd throw this "personal" sized fruit into my bag, but it's cute as can be. And since it's red, it's mine alone to eat.
Forty-first anniversary. Absolutely surreal, given that I barely feel 41, much less married for that long.

Good News, Bad News

As I was doing this peach the service guy from Volvo called. Seems as if the almost 12 year old car is biting the dust. Wont pass inspection next month without a considerable investment. It was a "peach" of a car. Im not sure which is the good or bad news. Certainly welcome a new car, hate paying for it. Have to change my car-slob ways and maintain a certain level of neatness, at least for a few years.

Oh! Rapturous Day!

Oh! My oars came two days ago!! A year of thinking about it, two months after ordering them, shipping from Australia, they came to me. A bit of assembly and I got them wet yesterday. Sooooo sweet. It may not be my own boat, I need rack space for that, but these are mine, available whenever I feel like it. And my callouses match the handle.

Im really getting to dislike this yellowish moleskine paper. Gotta find a better alternative.

Doctor's Office

These are the stacks and stacks of magazines in the doctor's office. I didnt have enough time to get them all; a doctor who is sort of on time and too many magazines. Actually, it could be a deconstructed loaf of bread, too.

Tom Brady's roof

It's a dreary morning, and Im at odds and ends. Tom Brady's roof is a view out the window. Mein Gott! The man has enough HVAC equipment up there to heat and cool a small strip mall. Must have five fireplaces, too, judging by the number of flues. Now I know way too much about this man. The roof is more interesting than football, though.

On a Roll

Yowza! I'm two for two.
Watching the Red Sox, eating cherries, making dots, mushing cherry juice into the drawing. It's just your average Sunday.

Cheery Cherry
