Walking is good for both, the sole and the soul. Think of all the health benefits.  Think of how much you are missing not seeing zooming by in your cars. Slow down and appreciate all that’s right under your nose 🙂

Now that the seasonal things have slowed down considerably for me, I’ll surely be walking a lot more… Some days, I bring my camera along.. most days, it’s cell phone only.

Somebody asked of me, ” how do you choose your subjects”. 🙂 I had to smile at this because truthfully there is no real rhyme or reason to how or what I take any shots of.  And… I am certainly not a professional.. it’s strictly a hobby for me.. but I will admit, I prefer candid shots to posed by far and macro’s of florals.. and veggies.  🙂 You’re probably perdy tired of seeing veggies on this blog.. but I absolutely love the progression of the growing season from start to finish, so just grin and bear with me! LOL  If you only knew how much I spare you (I love food & cooking) by omitting my food pics from this blog … but if interested hop on over to my family cooking blog. Simply scrumptious recipes with photos– but just remember, I can’t be responsible for any calories that may find their way to your midriffs or thighs… hence, just another reason to walk!! 🙂

I adore animals, that’s pretty obvious …..

and the ocean calls me to it daily, as I just love my solitude and ya know what they say, ‘if ya don’t use it, you’ll lose it!’ As a one time runner, I’m perfectly content ( as are my knees 🙂 to simply walk nowadays.

Some of my family shots  just tug at my heart… and I want to always remember those times, so they’re catalogued here, just for those occasions… hence the name of this blog– Thyme Goes By… a Remembrance.

And some days it’s whatever catches my eye or makes me laugh out loud! 🙂 It takes so little effort.. so get out there daily and see what you’ve been missing. You’ll probably hate it at first if you aren’t an outdoors or active person.. but I’ll guarantee you, once your hooked, you won’t want to ever miss it again. Just Walk!

Such a beautiful morning here in Maine that it’s hard to believe there is so much destruction going on to the far south of us. Mother Nature is on a rampage and yet, we are blessed with blue skies, sunshine, and safety. Home is dusty and dishes need to be done, but in the scheme of things…. thankfully intact and I am truly grateful…. while seeking ways to help my loved ones and dear friends down in harm’s way.
Hold on tight WPB ❤ 😦 Prayers coming your way. Be safe! Bet you readers feel the same.

My love of peaches borders on obsession.

I have loved, savored and craved juicy, ripe peaches my entire life.

As a child, we often vacationed with my Dad in Maine, and one of the highlights of every trip was making magical homemade peach ice cream, made with local peaches that we had picked.

My favorite book was “James and the Giant Peach.” As a little girl, I thought how amazing it would be to be trapped inside, eating my way through a giant, juicy peach.

My first T206 collectible baseball card was “Peaches Graham”.

There’s not a single food that reminds me more of summer, that brings back happy childhood memories. Peaches remind me of my dad. They bring me happiness.

My first peach-picking experience this season was just a few short weeks ago at my good friends, Ann and Howards’ orchard.. Foxes Ridge Farm in Acton and the last.. a few days ago, with my two grandsons, Liam and Eli. It was just a beautiful day… peaceful and so much fun — as was enjoying the fruits of our labor. Peach pie, Peach Salsa, Peach jams.. and of course.. peach ice cream! yummy!

Hopefully, peach picking will definitely become an annual summer tradition with my little guys. I hope it will become a wonderful memory for them too one day, and they’ll remember me, the same way I remember my Dad, bringing them happiness, as well.
