Week at a Glance ( June 21 – June 27 )


A week when our world bloomed at every turn.
When daylillies greeted each morning with a trumpet like burst.
A week when the bird feeder became a chipmunk’s snack bar,
thwarting all Frank’s efforts to keep him at bay.
A week when blueberries reached their favor peak,
and my attempt at homemade pita bread was only
a limited success,
looking better than it tasted.
A week when social distancing eased enough to allow
for the sweetness of much needed contact,
and local restaurants welcomed us back
to newly configured seating in outdoor spaces.
A week of tentative steps into today’s new normal.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.

    Hi Mary Jane,
    Frank recently shared your writings here on Saltwater Influenced and I am very impressed. It’s amazing how I am relating to to your observations of the world around us. At first I thought it was a joint venture with his photography. Not so, you do so very well there too!

    I have a comment and a suggestion for Frank to help in his efforts to ward of the pesky chipmunks.
    Our AC service guy hearing of our battle with the pesky critters told us to place a couple bars of
    soap, not any soap, but Irish Spring soap inside the wire cage with the cylinder holding the seed.
    Can’t be definite about it bing a final solution but it sure has helped. Also helping is our neighbor and her using her small animal have-a-heart trap catching a dozen or so at last count. She let’s them loose in the sand dunes around Chapoquoit beach.

    Thank you for something to look forward to each month.

    Milt Williamson
