A Typical Saturday Morning in Southern New England

It’s a typical Saturday morning here in Southern New England. My kids are off playing together working their imaginations pretending they are dinosaurs and keeping away from the imaginary T-Rex and the hot lava.

Meanwhile, my windows are opened and I can hear the sound of a lawn mower buzzing in the distance, and the aroma of fresh cut grass flowing through my kitchen window as I washed our morning dishes. I just stood there knowing that along with the gentle breeze and the sunlight of a sunny morning was just begging me to come outside to sit a while and take it all in.

I can hear the birds chirping in the distance. Up on the trees singing of a wonderful day this is becoming. I hear peace in the neighborhood. Everyone is joining in the mood. “It is finally feeling more like Spring.” They say. A “Good morning to you” we say to a neighbor walking by. They smile back with the same response.

The sound of the neighboring children playing in their yards. Mine are now out in our backyard chasing each other. With smiles and giggles and a bit of “weee” as they slide down the slide their father had made last Summer.

Now I’m sipping on a cup of tea taking it all in. Enjoying this morning and thanking God for the opportunity He has given me to live this life.

I hope you were able to enjoy and live this morning with me, for this is our typical Saturday morning in Southern New England.




I am a mother of two girls (6 & 7) and two boys(2 & 4). I am married to a wonderful man named Seth. We are happy to have Princess, our black lab, in our family. I, proudly, lived all my life in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona until I married my husband on June 2007. That is when I moved here to Western Massachusetts. Over 8 years and 4 kids later, I yet have explored more of New England. Join me on our outings of New England. Plus, I tend to be a little crafty, so you will find a lot of "DIY" posts as well. Pretty much of everything since I love trying new things, and how to make my busy life as a mommy go as smoothly as possible.

  1. Great description! I could totally picture it all in my mind’s eye. Made me homesick for Massachusetts! We’re having a little trouble getting Spring started up here in northern Maine, but we’re used to it. We certainly do enjoy and cherish the warmth and green-ness when it finally gets here and stays here for awhile.
