Serenity Now

Weekend Scenes: You, Me, and the Dogs

If Once You Have Slept on an Island
If once you have slept on an island
You'll never be quite the same;
You may look as you looked the day before
And go by the same old name,
You may bustle about in street and shop
You may sit at home and sew,
But you'll see blue water and wheeling gulls
Wherever your feet may go.
You may chat with the neighbors of this and that
And close to your fire keep,
But you'll hear ship whistle and lighthouse bell
And tides beat through your sleep.
Oh! you won't know why and you can't say how
Such a change upon you came,
But once you have slept on an island,
You'll never be quite the same.

By Rachel Lyman Field

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!
I'll be back tomorrow with something a bit more exciting. I promise.


(And to all of you Seinfeld devotees -- Insanity Later!)
Pin It!


  1. so cuteee! those dogs are adorable!

  2. Oh Ash...Your photos remind me of how much I miss George...remember that day in the cornfield?!
    and I LOVE the fact that you signed off with Toodles...BTW, I have a great friend who has two Bernaise (sp?!)Mountian dogs...both therapy dogs...nice choice sweetie.
    Love and hugs,
    Nell :)

  3. Thanks, Mary Kate!

    Nell, I DO remember that fateful day:) My Golden is a lot like George -- ginormous and stubborn. Thankfully, he lacks the libido that George had. Phew! No red coats around here. Ha ha! I'm so glad to hear that you have a friend with Berners. Bernese Mountain Dogs make the perfect therapy dogs! They're definitely my fave breed. We love ours so much:) She's a sweetheart! I will always remember "Toodles" and "Desk" -- you definitely made an impact on me! xoxo

  4. Wow! Your pictures are gorgeous. I can tell you guys had such a fun time. I'm jealous.. looks so peaceful and relaxing!
