Mom’s Day Out at Burlington Town Center

I was invited to attend this event but it was free and open to the public. It’s not often that I have a day out completely for me.  Sure, I go out. I go grocery shopping or to the drug store. I take the kids to school or work. I stop at the bank and […]

If you have ever wondered “Where does maple syrup come from?”, read on. For me, there is only one place that maple syrup comes from and that’s maple trees. For as long back as I can remember, we have had a jug of real maple syrup in the refrigerator for pancakes and waffles. There is […]

Help Fight Climate Change with a Global Initiative

Pictures from Jail

When I visited the Shelburne Museum last month with my Mother, I got to visit the original Castleton Jail.   The Castleton Jail is from the town I live in (Castleton) and was moved to the Shelburne Museum in 1953.  It was built in Castleton originally in 1890.  The jail is made of slate pieces […]

I […]

A Walk In the Woods

When I was a little girl, I used to dream of walking through the woods and coming across a castle or some kind of magic kingdom. The woods have always held some kind of mystical attraction for me. You just never quite know what’s around the corner. Thankfully, our little Vermont home is right in […]

Don’t Tread On Me

I went to the Hubbardton Battlefield Reenactment on July 6th (post coming soon).  It’s a reenactment of an American Revolution battle that happened here in Vermont just a few miles from my home.   The two flags shown here are the American Revolution flag and the Gadsden flag.  The Gadsden flag is the one that […]
