End of August

Zinneas are so colorful and plentiful at the farmstands this time of year.  The mason jar as a vase is so country and just a nice touch.

The Summer Squash and Zucchini are plentiful at the farmstands now, also.  A neat recipe that I saw one time that the Pioneer Woman picked up from staying at a fancy hotel in New York for a low carb breakfast was the above.  She had grilled tomatoes with hers.  But I just sauteed a red onion with summer squash and zuchinni and put two organinic, jumbo, poached farm fresh eggs on mine.  She had a couple of slices of Montery Jack cheese on the side.  But I put a couple of wedges of Cabot Cheddar on the side of mine.  I pinned the full recipe on my Pinterest breakfast board.

Everyone has different tastes, but I like the above style.  It’s country and just comfortable looking.  I love the throw pillow with the old time pick up truck.  The round hassack is just so comfy looking.  The white fireplace and the round soft rug complete with a crystal chandelier.  Then the bay window with the beautiful stained glass and built in book case on the side.  I love the flower print pillow in the chair, also.

One of my classmates from school that is one of my facebook friends, went to a really neat restaurant in Bar Harbor, Maine called the Route 66 restaurant.  I love everything about that place and it’s on my bucket list to visit.

Their lobster rolls look good to me.

They serve hot fudge sundaes in a little Corvette dish and that looks like fun.

Another place that would be fun to visit is the Perennial Pleasures Nursery in Hardwick, VT.  They have afternoon tea in their gardens.

Their specialty is English Cream Tea.

They even have a gift shop.

You can buy a hat to wear for tea in the garden.

It looks like a lovely atmosphere.

 

Buttermilk Falls

Another fun place to visit is Buttermilk Falls in Ludlow, VT.  So pretty and a neat swimming hole.

I love a pantry for the kitchen and saw the above pantry door in one of Yankee Barn Home’s houses.  Love the idea.

With all that is going on in the news and the stress all around us, I found the above idea to just have a mental cleanse challenge.  Sounds good to me.

Essential Oils sound healthy to me.  I first became aware of them from a yoga blog that I saw one time.  Then I saw the above recipes on Pinterest.

Then I read that Kelly Clarkson lost all her weight from reading “The Plant Paradox”.  I read all I could on it and found that it’s mainly avoiding Lectins.  Above is a very helpful chart on what Lectins are all about.

They say that it is good to meditate and I don’t know the proper way they meditate.
But when I want to just think of fun times, I just close my eyes and think of how beautiful Nantucket Island is.

I used to walk out to the Jetty Beach near Brandt Point every morning before work at one time.  Thinking of those times always is a nice little getaway from any stress.  I am sure everyone has special times in memory that are fun to meditate with.

And that is my thoughts on this end of August day in Vermont.
