Nothing more fun than an 8 year old's birthday party!

In spite of what you have heard, I am a pretty cheap date and easy to please, entertainment-wise, that is.

Proof positive ~ I am very excited about going to an 8 year old's birthday party tonight!

Of course, this is no ordinary 8 year old's birthday.

It is my friend Seth's 8 year old birthday.

 Here we are last summer (2012) at the Thompson Speedway

Seth is wonder at every turn. You never know quite what he is going to say or do.

He is not shy in the least! He is very dramatic, funny, and full of jokes.

He is also quite thoughtful and caring for a little kid, too, always willing to give of himself to any donation going on in town.

That is because his family spends a lot of quality time with him and explain all about the world and life to him.

This birthday party is also exciting because we are having pizza, and of course, birthday cake! Plus, I got Seth a card with a whoopie cushion in it!

Take time to spend with the youth of the world, even if you don't have kids. They are our future.

I am a Putnamaniac that is excited to be going to a very special 8 year old's birthday party tonight!

Give us this day...our Daily Bread...Thankfully IHSP and Daily Bread does provide!

The Daily Bread food bank, a branch of Interfaith Human Services of Putnam, is located right in Putnam.

This summer I have had the pleasure to not only donate a tiny bit of money, but also to donate some of my time to the Daily Bread.

It is an eye opener, for many reasons, as you can well sit and imagine while reading this.

Growing up, our family did not have a lot of material things, nor a big budget, but we did have a big garden.

We (my mother, that is, spent hours over a hot stove in the summer) canned the harvest, to enjoy the bounty all winter long. Green beans, tomatoes and more..... There were always bushels of winter squash and potatoes in the basement. Yum!

We had chickens, so we always had fresh eggs.

We had goats, so we had fresh milk.

We had my grandparents living next door, so they fed us often, too.

We knew how to stretch the food and still eat well with a small amount of money.

My mom learned from her mom (my grandmother), who raised and cooked deliciously for 6 children and husband (my grandfather) on an even smaller budget. I learned from them as well.

Not everyone has all that going for them while living on a low budget.

The Daily Bread and food banks everywhere throughout the world help fill this need. 

It is good to give some of yourself back to the community. It really gets you thinking, and appreciating things you may take for granted, either now or in the past.

Step up and find something that you may be able to do to help your community. People are made to help each other. You will inspire someone else and not even know it!

You can "like" Daily Bread on Facebook here.

I am a Putnamaniac that is thankful for my Daily Bread!

Corn husking!

Yesterday as I was driving home on the back roads of Eastford, I saw a lady sitting on her front steps, husking some ears of corn!

(generic photo found online)

How many times have you done that in your life?

My grandfather, "Poppa Moone" lived right next door to me when I was a kid. Our houses were separated by his huge veggie garden. That was my favorite place to be!

Gosh, I can remember back to when I barely was able to walk, but I was sitting on the steps, husking corn. It is so much cleaner to just take it outside, enjoy the summer heat, and peel away the husks and silk. We'd then feed the chickens all those husks. Win - Win !

You can bet that I ate more than my share of corn over the years, too. I guess that is why I didn't mind sitting and husking.

I am a Putnamaniac that loves to sit on the steps and husk my ears of corn!

I do Follow the Fifty ~ Models of Heart Health!

I am and have been a "follower" of the fifty teams of heart healthy models and their coaches since they first began.

I even have a "follower" t-shirt. On the back it says boldly "Ask me why I follow the fifty".

Every time I wear that shirt, someone asks me why I follow, and so I tell them.

Tomorrow morning after the 7am news, my friend Kat and I will get to tell the listeners of WINY Radio why we are followers!

I follow because they've inspired me and kept me focused on taking care of myself and making good lifestyle choices (even when it is not easy).

From tooting in my car to the Red Shirts walking on the River Trail... cheering them on in local race events... the Broadway Live show in Dec (thanks to tickets we won from WINY)!... the support & friendship I see them continue to give to each other...

FTF has inspired me and the have most certainly inspired my friend, Kat.

I hope this "domino effect" keeps happening and continues to reach more and more of us.

Kat is a total Super Model of choosing to live a healthy heart, body & soul lifestyle.

She should be proud of making these choices and she is now inspiring others.
FYI, Kat recently walked the early bird 6am Deary Walk with Follow the Fifty leader Linda Colangelo, model Karyn DiBonaventura, me, and a few of the other FTF sisters, too.

Kat completed the 5 miles FASTER than she did the O'Putnam 5k/3.1 miles back in March. (And we socialized, stopped and took pictures along the way, etc). The Deary event was a goal she set for herself and was certainly a huge accomplishment!!!

Kat  has lost weight, but most importantly she is making good choices every day and is focusing on a life style including a healthy heart, body and soul. You can see her shining more and more every day.

I've also asked morning host, Gary O if he could play Joe Cocker's version of the Beatle's "With a little help from my friends" and dedicate it to all the FTF sisterhood and coaches, as well as all of the adopted sisters and followers for the "Forgotten 45" feature spot at 8:20am.

After all, we all sure can be inspired with a little help from our friends!

I am a Putnamaniac that follows the fifty and is inspired continually by them!

Happy? Why???

I am pretty happy!


I have a nice life.

I have a nice home.

I have a nice family.

I shook hands with a veteran today (he had a Veterans hat on) and thanked him for his service, and therefore for giving me the chance at the good life I have.

I have enough food.

I am healthy.

I am active.

I use my time wisely, work hard, and volunteer as often as I can.

How about you?

Washing machine... and soon... a dryer!!!! Here we come Bousquet's Appliance!

It has been said that I can get excited easily, and over very simple things!

Well, I guess I don't like to take too much for granted, and I really try to remember to appreciate everything - big and small.

Big days of excitement are coming my way.....

Since I bought the condo in 2008, I've only had a washing machine. It is a beauty! One of those high efficiency ones... clothes come out very clean and well spun (aka not soaking wet).

However, I never got the dryer to go with it... so for 5 years I have been washing and hanging everything up to dry over a nice old fashioned rack, the shower curtains, and sometimes even a door!

Not the most efficient way to go, but it worked.

With the move and purchase of a house coming very soon, I am going to treat myself  to a new washer (my current beauty is staying with the condo), and also a dryer!!! 


I'm sure old, stingy, New England habits will die hard, and I will continue to hang some things, but I am going to do the happy dance when I get to use a dryer again!

I'll be headed to Bousquet's Appliances (with locations in Danielson and Putnam) to get the new stuff (including a stove and fridge, too).

If you are looking for a good deal and great service, be sure to check Bousquet's out.
I am a Putnamaniac that is looking forward to a DRYER!!!

Johnston & Associates Real Estate ~ Making our dreams come true as we speak!

Well, here I go again!

Literally ~ here I go again.

Once again I am on the move, out of the condo and in to a fixer upper ranch with great potential here in Putnamania!

With the closing date for each transaction quickly approaching, color me excited!

Although this will be the SIXTH home that I am buying, it is the first one that I am buying with someone else.

This is a much different situation to adjust to! I have been a "take charge" person in my personal life, since it was just me for all those years.

With a soon to be husband (who has moved very few times in his life, and has never gone through the home purchasing procedure) in the picture now, it is actually a bit more of a challenge to go through this sales/purchase/moving process.

My saving grace...well, her name is not Grace, but Rachael.

Meet Rachael Johnston of Johnston & Associates Real Estate.

I first met Rachael when I took the Real Estate Practices & Principals course at QVCC a few years back. Clearly she was a special sort of person ~ caring, honest, hard working, sincere ~ top shelf!
I've also been lucky enough to have stayed connected to Rachael since then, in many other arenas... through Rotary Roses, caroling at Christmas, following her and the Follow the Fifty Sisterhood, at local heart healthy events, volunteering at the Daily Bread...

Now, we are winding down on our latest connection. As the Johnston & Associates mantra states, they are "making our dreams come true."

The calm, honest, straight forward, organized and efficient way that Rachael has guided us through the sale of the condo and purchase of the future BEST house in Putnam has been extraordinary!

If you are considering selling your home or buying a home, please give Rachael a call.
Office: 860-923-3377
Cell: 860-450-9562
You will be in the best hands in the world.

I am a Putnamaniac, and my dreams are coming true, thanks to Johnston & Associates Real Estate!

Brooklyn Fair ~ Be sure to visit and kiss a cow!

As summer winds down, there are a few things that I look forward to.

Summer ending is NOT something I look forward to.

The Brooklyn Fair IS something I look forward to.

The smells, the friends, the sights, the entertainment, and even the Sunday morning 8am 5k run are all a blast.

If you like to enjoy the fairs as the summer season winds down, be sure to visit the Brooklyn Fair.

It opens Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 at 4pm.
Then it is open at 8am on Friday August 24th through Sunday August 25.

I can't wait! I just might even kiss a cow!

I am a Putnamaniac that likes to wind down the summer with the local fairs, like the Brooklyn Fair, starting tomorrow!

Beavers in the Quinebaug - cool to see, but probably not a good thing for the river.

We saw beavers three nights in a row on our walk along the River Trail.

If you know where the walking bridge across from Arch Street is located, you can see the beaver shack on the far bank on the western side of the bridge and possibly see these beavers, too, if you time it right. Dusk seems to be our lucky time. We even saw two swimming together on one of the evenings.

While it is very exciting to see all sorts of creatures in nature, working away, it makes me hope that the busy beavers do not disrupt the Quinebaug River.

Beavers are notorious at damming up rivers and causing all sorts of mayhem to all the surrounding areas.

What do you think about this? Am I getting nervous for nothing, or is there potential for a change in the river that will not be welcomed? What is the solution to the hard working beaver and the havoc they wreak? It seems to be a problem in so many places.

In the meantime, I will get a glance at nature in action, when I can, and see what happens.

I am a Putnamaniac that enjoys seeing the beavers in the Quinebaug, but hopes they do not do any damage!

Three days of bad choices is stopping right now - we can all do it!

Well, it sure is easy to make good habits, but far easier to make bad habits...

I work VERY hard at making and sticking to good choices and habits.
However, every now and then it is easy to slip up.

Last week I had three days in a row of bad choices:
1) Thursday night I gave in to a slice of cheese pizza while volunteering at Third Thursday in Willimantic
2) Friday night I cooked a meal with pasta...and although it was whole wheat pasta, I sure did eat way more than I should have and way more than I needed.
3) Saturday night we went out for a nice birthday celebration with the mothers at The Corner Bistro, in Scituate, RI.  I chose eggplant parm, thinking that looked like a pretty good vegetarian choice. I never get that sort of item, and although it was yummy, it was battered and fried, plus a side of pasta came with it. I managed to control my intake and shared with others, but still ate something I usually never eat.

So, after three days of knowingly making some bad choices, I got right back on track. We can all do it! It is surely a conscious matter of choice. While it is certainly nice to treat yourself to something once in a while, you can see how these "treats" could easily turn into bad choices and then bad habits.

Take control of your life and your choices. This should be in all aspects of your life!

You can do it! It is your life, after all.

I am a Putnamaniac that works very hard on making good choices and keeping good habits!

TLGV's WALKTOBER is really just around the corner ~ and the guides are available!

Walktober is something Northeast CT gets jacked up about.

And why not?
This will be The Last Green Valley's 23rd Annual Walktober.

It started out as just a day or 2 of walks in October, way back when.

Then it grew into "Walking Weekends" in October...

It now has exploded and is busting out a bit over the edges of the month October ~ featuring over 100 organized walks, paddles, bike rides, and more!

This year's very descriptive guide is now available ~ hot off the presses.

Keep your eyes open for The Last Green Valley at upcoming community events such as the Brooklyn Fair, Woodstock Fair, and Putnam's First Friday, amongst other events. We will have the Walktober Guides with us!

You can also pick a Walktober Guide up at The Last Green Valley's office (203B Main Street, Danielson, CT 06239, Phone: 860-774-3300) and soon it will be available for download on TLGV's website.

There is so much to see, learn, smell, and simply enjoy in the beautiful 35 towns of The Last Green Valley. 

Don't miss out! Attend as many Walktobers as you can fit in. Free Fabulous Fun!

You can "like" The Last Green Valley on facebook here.

I am a Putnamaniac that can't wait for Walktober!

Brilliant merger creates Habitat Eastern CT!

Pretty much everyone has heard about Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat relies on community participation and is open to all in effort to build a stronger community.
Simply put, the goal is to make sure every man, woman and child has simple, decent shelter.

New England, and Eastern CT specifically, tends to be a home for brilliant, hard working, problem solving, goal driven, every day type of people.

The merger of the formerly separate Habitat Southeast CT and Habitat Northeast CT is a prime example of this brilliance in action!

Habitat Eastern CT was recently born, and it arrived kicking & screaming and ready to amp up the success level.

HFHECT will serve all of New London county and eastern Windham County.

Stats from the HFHECT website boast:
Since 1987, the organization has completed 59 homes throughout New London County and eastern Windham County
And over 110 homes internationally through the tithe HFHECT sends to international Habitat for Humanity affiliates.

Be ready for a bigger presence and more action from Habitat in our area of Northeast CT now that this merger is complete.

There is strength in numbers. You may consider chipping in yourself - grow community pride.

Expect success from Habitat Eastern CT!

I am a Putnamaniac that sees HUGE potential for Habitat for Humanity Eastern CT!

Rag Bags and other old time uses of stuff!

Nicknames sure can be colorful.

I have a co-worker nicknamed "Ragbags".

You know how your mind can lead itself on a trail pretty easily.... today was one of those times.

I heard one of the guys mention "Ragbags", and I thought of how when I was a kid, way back in the old days, we actually used rags for cleaning.

By rags, I mean stuff we used to wear, but then was just too raggedy to wear any longer.
Shirts; t-shirts in particular were the most popular items to use for washing the floor, windows, bathroom, or dusting.

But, on occasion, I remember being handed a pair of old skivvies to use! Imagine that! They were clean, of course, but still! Having to use an old pair of your dad's underpants to dust the coffee tables just seems hilarious now that I look back at it.

Do you have any odd things like that from the past that just pop into your mind by hearing a simple phrase or by seeing something?

I've been chuckling to myself all day about the rags in the rag bag we used to have!

I am a Putnamaniac that remembers all the things we used to use in our Rag Bag growing up!

Football time! Local and big time, it is here!

It is getting lighter later each morning and darker earlier each night.

The bugs are chirping out majorly ~ and seem to get louder each night.

You know what all of this activity points to, don't you?

Yup - it is football season!

So although I am ready to cheer loudly each week for the New England Patriots, as you cheer loudly for (insert your team here), I definitely love all levels of competition available to us in Northeast CT.

This love starts with the practices we can hear with the younger WPTP players (and their cheerleaders singing "push 'em back, push 'em back, wayyyyy back") over in the fields on Recreation Park Rd.

It continues on with the local high schools combined team, The Quinebaug Valley Pride. Nothing beats being in the stands and the marching bands!

As the competition increases, so do the size and skills of the players, and so we also love the Green Valley Blackhawks. The games are so entertaining and inexpensive (just $5 for everyone over the age of 12. 12 & under are FREE). It is nice to get behind a local team like this, cheering in the home stands of the Old Killingly High School, 79 Westfield Ave, Killingly.

Get out and support your local teams as well as the pros.

I am a Putnamaniac that loves all levels of football ~ especially the local teams!

Putnam Ford! I love them and their new commercial full of smiles!

Putnam Ford is a great place!

It is convenient, and I got my my Faithful Focus there back in 2006.

The service is great and so very reasonably priced.

Little Miss Focus is still going strong and closing in shortly on 150,000 miles.

Putnam Ford is now running a commercial, featuring their employees on the local cable channel.

I get wicked excited when it comes on!!!


Because not only do I love Putnam Ford, but I also love my neighbors Patty & Tim, long time members  Putnam Ford's "The Fun Bunch". They are there smiling beautifully for the camera in this commercial!

How silly that a commercial makes me so happy, but it sure does! Smiles do that to me!

Share a smile today!

Berrying brings back great memories, and gives the opportunity for making new ones!

As kids we were dragged around with our parents to do many things.

Grocery shopping was not so much fun...

Berry picking was great fun!

This summer we have taken the time a few times to pick strawberries and blueberries.

Although we went to a farm to pick them and paid for the berries this summer, it still brings back those old memories of going out into the woods and hunting down the sweet little berries of blue.

Mom would give us our own cans and send us in search of great wild bushes. When you look at an empty can, you think you will never fill it, but before you know it, it is full!

I would not eat many when I picked, because I really wanted to fill my bucket. My brother on the other hand, would eat most of everything he picked! He was not too worried about filling his can.

Best of all was when we got home and Mom would make a homemade blueberry pie.

Ahhhhhhh, those were the good old summer days as a kid with the biggest worry being how fast could you fill your berry can, AND how just how much pie could you eat!

I am a Putnamaniac that still loves the berry good days of summer, new and past!

Herons a squawking!

My days of living on the Little River are numbered as the condo has sold, and we will be moving on to a new nest very soon.

In these final days of packing and planning, there is also a lot of time being spent enjoying the wildlife that goes along with living on a river.

The soothing sounds of the river alone are priceless, as are the birds and ducks. Catching glimpse of muskrats, deer, woodchucks and more is also such a pleasure... yes.... even when they are nibbling away in the Renegade Garden.

Lately though, a heron has been squawking up a storm!

I do not know if it is the time of year, or if a loud and vocal heron has begun frequenting our area, but in any case, it is loud!!!

The first few times I heard it, I thought "What the heck is that", but I googled and as usual, the Cornell website was a great help.

Take a listen to some of the heron sounds they have captured and shared here (scroll down a bit once you get to their page).

Be sure to keep your ears open wherever you live for the sounds of your neighborhood. I hope they are as nice as mine.

I am a Putnamaniac that loves hearing the herons squawking!

Arc of Quinebaug Valley Rubber Duck Race! Cheer for your duck to win!!!

One of the silliest events to be a part of every year is the Arc of Quinebaug Valley's Rubber Duck Race.

You buy a duck for $5 and have a chance to win some awesome prizes.

This year the hilariousness will take place on Sunday, August 11, 2013, in the Quinebaug River that runs along side Putnam's Rotary Park.

A bucket loader is filled with tons of little yellow duckies.

It drives onto the bridge that goes over the Quinebaug River.

The ducks are dumped in and off they swim to the finish line.

Folks line the river banks (including me), cheering like crazy for the little rubber ducks!

What fun!!!

Some years the river is low, and it takes forever for the ducks to make it to the finish line. 

Some years the wind is blowing so hard, it pushes the ducks away from the finish line. 

No matter what, it is fun!

Will I see you standing on the river bank in Rotary Park and cheering along side this Putnamaniac this year? I sure hope so!

P.S. - the duck race is the same day as the Main Street Car Cruise this year, so you will have plenty of fun in downtown Putnam ~ guaranteed!

I am a Putnamaniac that will be cheering for my ducks at the 16th Annual Arc Rubber Duck Race!

Don't forget to come to River Fire in Putnam on Saturday, August 10, 2013!

If you like a good time, which is FREE by the way, then you must visit downtown Putnam on Saturday, August 10th, 2013 for a River Fire.

There are twenty pots set out in the Quinebaug River earlier in the summer, and on Saturday night, they will be filled over and over again with wood and lit afire.

Music, provided by WINY Radio, plays calmly and romantically as the fires burn.

What an atmosphere. So relaxing, picturesque, and rewarding to attend this event.

Although the idea of Putnam's River Fire is similar to some other events of the same type, it is truly unique. You must come and check it out. Bring lawn chairs or blankets, because you will want to sit and soak it all in.

See you in Rotary Park by the crackling fires.

I am a Putnamaniac that looks forward to our River Fires and loves every minute of them!

Deary Race, Walk, Ride is already here again ~ my how a year flies by!

A signature event in Northeast CT is the annual Deary Race, Walk, Ride, that starts out and ends at JD Coopers.

This is a great event that has grown not only in participants every year, but has actually added more events over the years as well, to involve folks with all sorts of different exercise tastes.

As the Deary event name states, there is a race (5 mile run starting at 9:05am), two 5 mile walks (one at 6am, one at 8am), a kid's fun run (starting at 9:15am), and a couple of bike rides of different lengths (starting at 8:15am).

The best part of this community get together is that it is a big fund raiser for the Deary Cancer Fund. See how the funds are used here.

Every penny raised stays in our local community to provide to those in need as they face their battle with cancer.  There are not a lot of fund raisers that can boast about the efficient use of their monies.

So although this is only my 4th year of being out at 6am for the early morning walk, this is the 24th annual Deary Race, Walk, Ride.

If you have never done it, choose and event and come on down! It is great fun, for a great cause!

Car cruise - coming up soon ~ so many cars and events it is tough to see it all in one day!

Putnam is hosting the Main Street Car Cruise again this year on Sunday, August 11, 2013 from 8am to 5pm.

If you have ever been to this event in the past, you will know that it is a challenge to see it all in just one day... you will definitely need to grab some lunch at one of the many delicious restaurants downtown to give you enough energy to make it through the day and to see it all!

The streets are closed off and loaded with classic cars and trucks... as far as the eye can see.

There is a lot designated for burn outs!

There are motorcycles.

There is music.

This year there is some sort of fancy fangled machine that you can hitch your car up to and get it tested to see how much horse power you have. This is apparently a big deal for you car folks!

Bring your camera. Bring your "ahhhhhhs" and "wows" and "holy smokes" to this event. You will have a blast and be super impressed by the turn out!

I am a Putnamaniac that can't believe how many vehicles show up for Putnam's Main Street Car Cruise!

Lots of Yum and a vacation atmosphere at 85 Main!

This Putnamaniac has not had a vacation in about 100 years, and even when I had them, I would work at my part time job during that time.

That is ok by me, since I am a lover of routine, and vacations kinda throw me all out of whack.

This is also ok by me, since I can take a vacation get away at any time I am home in Putnam by visiting tons of places within just a mile or two of my home sweet home.

85 Main, a fabulous restaurant in downtown Putnam is one of those great places.

When I am sitting on their patio, under the trees, feeling the gentle summer breeze on my skin, visiting with friends, drinking a nice summer offering and tasting a delicious item from the menu, I am totally on vacation.

How sweet is that?

If you have never tried 85 Main, trust me, you will love it, and you will love that feeling of being on vacation while you are there!

I am a Putnamaniac that loves to take a nice vacation to 85 Main!

Car is loaded and ready for another funfilled First Friday tonight!

One of the most fun things about Putnam's First Fridays is loading up my car!

Seriously! It fills me with the anticipation of whom and what I will get to see at this great community event.

Since I volunteer at each First Friday (held on the First Friday of every month from May through October in downtown Putnam) for The Last Green Valley, I need to load my car up with TLGV's display, table, printed materials such as Guides, Maps, Annual Reports, etc.

Since we also offer FREE craft fun for the kids on each First Friday, I also need to load those materials up.

Tonight we are making pine cone animals!!! I must admit, I made a few myself last night. Good times!!!

So this morning I loaded up my car with the usual display items, plus lots of feathers, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, glue.... and I almost pulled out of the garage without the most important ingredient for the craft.... the pail of pinecones!

I hope to see you at First Friday tonight. Remember there are only 3 more left before the season is over:
Tonight, Friday, August 2
Friday, September 6
Friday, October 4

Take advantage of free and entertaining events like Putnam's First Fridays. There is a ton of music,  art and camaraderie to enjoy!

You can "like" and keep up to date with First Fridays on Facebook here.

I am a Putnamaniac that loves community events like First Fridays!

Putnam Police Department offers "vacation watch" service - take advantage while you are away for peace of mind!

WINY Radio gives us so much information about local "stuff".

There really is no way to know everything, so it is good to keep your ears open, and then share that information.

Knowledge is power, strength, and unity for us all.

So, here is the latest and greatest thing I learned from listening to WINY recently:

The Putnam Police Department offers a service to vacationing residents.

Putnam PD will do drive byes while you are away and simply check on your home & property. That is pretty cool! Contact them if you are going to be away, for vacation or even for work. Putnam PD is there to help!

I am a Putnamaniac that will take advantage of the Putnam PD's service, if I ever get to go on vacation!
