Happy Friday!
I can't believe it's Friday already!
This week flew by, yes, no?
I have to ask, did any try out my healthier chocolate chip cookies?
Dying to know what you thought. They are just so good, I'm curious if anyone noticed what I noticed and that they were almost exactly like regular chocolate chip cookies.
The light has been breathtaking on cape cod lately. I want summer to come back...
Brand spanking new tugboat. I watched him get used to the new maneuvering in the cape cod canal the other day. Apparently the newer ones are quieter--now you know!
Last time I took a photo like this it was 90 degrees and I almost jumped in with the others.
And now it's 35 degrees; ocean temp maybe 48-50?

  1. I love the hidden logo link! That is just so so cool. Going to check out the mac and cheese link too :) Happpppy Friday!!

  2. Couldn't help myself from clicking on The ugly children story. Cosmetic surgery? Beyond belief.
    I'd never seen the cowbell video. Funny. Used to love SNL...my kids gave me all the videos from the Radner/Belushi days.

    Got to make a couple comments about the tipping. I tip valet $3...guess I'm in the middle there. But re my haiardresser: she owns the shop and my mother (yes I know that's supposedly antiquated) always said no tipping the owner. So I don't. Frankly, if I tipped her, I couldn't afford her services. I give her something at Christmas. Have spoken to a couple friends that go to her about the same thing...they don't tip either.

    I've been fascinated by all the articles about sitting and how unhealthy it is. At my age, I do more sitting than I used to, but do work out an hour every day, strenuously. And the normal stuff one does during the day. But I do spend a lot of time reading.

    I had seen the apple list...actually stuck it on my desktop, Very helpful.
    Feedbags...too funny.
    Hidden logos...a fascinating read.
    The Pinterest tip for adding blog name is a great idea. Going to do it today.
    Going to try that piecrust.
    Guess I'll keep taking my probiotics!
    I get a flu shot annually. Most of my friends don't. Oddly.
    Good links! Even sent one to my daughter.

  3. Gorgeous pics as always! I'm so obsessed with avocados, but their such a pain in the butt. Too ripe, not ripe enough, totally rotten. I have wasted sp much effort and money on those elusive avocados. Those blog tips are great - now to implement them.

  4. Beautiful light over the water! I love having more reasons to eat avocados. And, I'm happy to eat more Brazil nuts too. Thanks for the info!

  5. Great pictures, particularly the kitty one. ;-) Love the links -- thanks.


I love your comments!
