I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Fixer Upper or Tear It Downer?

While in most states grant money is available for municipalities or non-profits, it's typically not available to the homeowner. That needs to change!  We should be doing everything we can to save spectacular places like this.  The history of American architecture is fascinating.

For Sale on the Coast of Maine; a run-down beauty with a water view.

Perched on a generous 30 acre parcel, this home eludes memories of a by-gone era.  You can find the listing information here.  Complete with a lovely view; this 204 year old gem needs more than a little TLC.  Isn't that the best kind though?
Update - SOLD!!!

A pretty floral birthday cake.

You don't have to be a professional cake decorator in order to serve a lovely cake.  Here's a simple solution from the garden.
Simply make any cake using a bundt pan.  Frost the cake and insert a small jar or glass into the middle of the cake.  Gently place some flowers into the vessel with water and your cake is suitable for any spring or summer affair!  Note - Pansies are edible, however, hydrangeas are not and were used for presentation only.  Be sure not to serve any flowers that may be toxic to humans!
