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. 



Well ya gotta admit.. it is a cute bum! 😉



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!

Hold your noses!  LOL Meet Snoopy, my girlfriend’s pup.
Alas, this morning Snoopy was let outdoors after breakfast to do his business, before the family went off to work as routine.

My friends have a pond on their property, and they can’t seem to keep Snoop outta the damn thing! He’s either trying to catch frogs, or the ducks that frequent the pond.

Well everybody was kind of running late this morning for work, and nothing Snoop ever brings home from his morning romp ever seems to surprise them… But this sorta did!
Baaad Snoopy, bad dog!! Needless to say, nobody got in to work on time today. LOL

P.S.  I can SO see Poogie pulling this stunt one day! 🙂 j.a.s.14

Finally, it’s nearly Spring. I’m saying this with fingers crosses because all of us New Englanders know so well, we can ‘march’ our way right into Spring or take an about face into Winter for another storm or two.. ( or more!) Just when we thought winter was over, Mother Nature has decided that instead of seeing the croccus popping out of the ground on the first day of Spring, she is going to deliver to us a first day of Spring Nor’easter with accumulations of up to a foot in our neck of the woods.

Though the calendar may say spring, on Sunday.. winter won’t be going away quietly for certain.  But the nice part of a spring Nor’easter is that whatever amount of inches of the white stuff we get, it won’t stick around for very long… and may prove to be a nice blanket for the peas I’ve just set. Unlike last winter, I’m back on schedule in the garden this season and for me that means getting the peas into the ground on St Paddy’s day!  As I went about my task I could see the first signs of the season. Only a few spotty patches of snow remained and though muddy, green pastures surrounded me, while last Autumn’s leaves blew aimlessly across the fields. The grapevines and elderberries buds are already plumping up! The tulips, croccus and daffodils are already poking their heads out of the ground and the fall beds of garlic coming along nicely. I’m glad I decided to leave the salt marsh hay over them for another week, with the impending forecast moving in on us.  Once the garden was squared away, my dear friend Bill suggested we head to the local Irish tavern to celebrate the day and fill up on corned beef and cabbage dinner, before we headed to the beach.


Yesterday was a great day here for spring beachcombing. Sunny, bright blue skies and balmy, for this time of year.. 62 degrees. The tides were out and we found ourselves not wanting to come off the beach after our walk. I saw more people on the beach than I had all winter. The harbor seals could be seen playing in the chilly waters at the end of the the channel. The quohog beds were plentiful and from the looks of it, the gulls had a feast fit for a king. Ayup.. shades of spring are clearly on the way… and the Red Sox opening day, just a couple of weeks away!
