A single peony…beautiful and to me unusual…I don’t recall seeing one before the other day at Patty’s.

Six Word Journal…5 July 2011

Summer day/blissful /rewarding/nap refreshing



Day 05¬†‚Äď Something you hope to do in your life.
I hope to remain independent and live in my own house for many years.
Longevity for women runs on both sides of my family and I expect to live many
more years.
I have paintings to paint, things to write.  Want/vs need lots of time and quiet surroundings.
Life is just too busy
  • There are places I’ve been, like the Keeper’s House B+B on at the Robinson Point Light house at Isle Au Haut, Maine..twice.
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† No electricity, no phones, cell phones won’t work, like back in the day; Natures sounds are enough for ambient sounds.
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† And just a few rattletrap cars on rough roads. It’s a small island, but has a portion of the Acadia National Park to hike and
            look at the views.  A garden for veggies, chickens for eggs.  A quaint indoor bathroom, with a beautiful outhouse with views 
            for the men and the women.  One cabin had an out door shower.
  • Eagle Island, owned by the Quinn’s. ¬†What a trip back in time….a boarding house type house, with lovely rooms¬†
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† that again look like a trip back in the day….indoor bathroom and out house; much of the food grown right there.
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†The only way to get there is the mail boat…and back to the mainland…postal holiday…plan to stay another day unless the
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†captain is heading to the mainland for some reason‚ėļ.
These luxurious¬†accommodations/won’t be available to my budget now…but I’m sure I can find places of serenity that
will calm my soul.
