A Day From the Gods

WOW! What a day out there. 

There is a perfect breeze to keep the newly arrived 'black flies' at bay. These critters last about a month. The past few days we were welcomed in the garden by, what we call, 'scouts' or stupid ones. They are not quite sure of their role but are scouting it out for their more intelligent and determined leaders.

Poor Sophie got bitten on both eye lids yesterday and they swelled a little till she got into the ocean.A great remedy for fly bites.

Back to this gorgeous day. Must be the weather that New England had over the weekend. We opened every window in the house to let the breeze blow out every shred of winter. Love it!

Today is also my Tuesday with Dad. My day to bring a meal and spend some time with him. He is 94 and still living in his house. The past couple of months have taken a toll on him. His eyesight has been compromised enough to limit his mobility. So this is where his 'Kids' come in. There are six of us who live in the vicinity and we all share the week's meals with him.

Today I made your basic Maritime fish chowder.......of course Cod, then some Haddock,  Salmon and potato and onions. Tasted OK. I think he will like it. 

And on that note I have to run......can't keep a 94 year old waiting.

Hope your day is as perfect as it is here.
