      Mother’s day was awesome! My daughter brought me these gorgeous flowers and using my largest vase they were still very crowded. I have all but the roses left ….just beautiful to look at and the aroma..ou--lala! This was also an opportunity to meet the new boyfriend, Jamie….DSC07558 He is in 2 bands, plays the mandolin, guitar and not sure what else? His folks own a sign store in Brunswick…… called…. Carrot Signs …hopefully that link works. They are apparently old hippies, very nice, and he works there too. Carissa and he adore each other….I know it’s early, but I have a good feeling about these two!DSC07561 Aren’t they cute together? She is very nervous around him still….doesn’t want to screw this up I guess.

Let me tell you why I have a good feeling about it. They met a year ago while she was doing a promo for the company she works for and he was playing in one of his bands there. She was in a relationship at the time and says now that she was not happy. They spoke and felt a connection but she had a boyfriend. He had just ended a 7 year relationship a year before….the girl decided she didn’t want kids….and he does….apparently a deal breaker for him. Although they did not see each other for another year, he wrote a song about her. When they caught up again just before Easter, he had written two more. She’s been a vegetarian for some time….most of her boyfriends were not…..he is. She’s always said she did not want to have kids….now she does. I could go on but I guess just seeing the way they are together said it all for me. They are already talking about the future….and oh…did I mention he’s her age…well he’s 31 and she will be 30 next month….perfect.

I am absolutely having fun with it though. I found out that I am related to a man by the name of Tristram Coffin. He even has a wikipedia page!! Here is it…. Tristram Coffin  …How cool is that? I think he is my 7th or 8th great grandfather. My dad’s mom was a Coffin. It’s a very old English name and they go back to royalty possibly. Tristram purchased Nantucket Island along with 9 other very famous men. It’s all very cool stuff. I have also unearthed another famous relative I will tell you about next time.  I started some seeds inside and that brings me joy. They are doing well…mostly flowers and a couple of herbs….Rosemary and Italian Basil. Here are some photos…DSC07571DSC07569


I’ve also been doing a lot of cooking on these damp rainy days we’ve had. I made this…DSC07543lasagna and then DSC07548this chicken cordon bleu….here are a couple of close-ups…..DSC07547

DSC07551 Oh my goodness….look at that cheese just oozing out! I froze a lot of this (of course) and we get many meals out of it. We always have a fresh salad every day with our meals. I am also selling marbles for my friend once again on Ebay.  Here’s a link to that….MainelyMarbles   …..that’s a lot of fun too. Well…time to make some salads!! Hope you are all doing well and you have an awesome Mother’s Day too. Hey Dawn….I thought you were going to start blogging??? I know….I know….I should talk!! I’ll be baaaaaacccckkkkkk……..Smile
