This & That - July 2016

July began with a get-together of our sons and their families to celebrate two birthdays plus the two we missed in the Spring when the babies were born.  While Olivia June was here I showed her the new bridge in the Enchanted Woods leading to the Faerie door. . . .

Hello, Everyone.  It's a beautiful day in the Lake District.  I see Jemima Puddle-duck over there chatting with Pigling Bland. . . .

Bowman House

John Bowman was a potter who lived and worked in Boonsboro, Maryland, in the latter part of the 1800s.  The Bowman family had emigrated from Germany in the late 1700s and settled in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  One of the sons moved down into Washington County, Maryland.  It is that son's son, John, who purchased this log home in 1868 and established Boonsboro Pottery. . . .

More or Less - July 2016

Let's talk hair!  I just got my hair cut shorter last week because I can't stand it on my neck in this hot, humid weather.  What compelled me to do it was I'd just seen a photo of myself, taken from the side, with my hair up in a bun (because of the heat) and decided I wasn't ready to look like a granny.....even though I was holding my newest grandchild.  The photo also drove home the fact that I'll never look like I did in 1974 when I wore my hair the longest it's ever been, no matter how long I let my hair grow now. . . .
