A Happy June

June has been quite a month. A great month, really. From really close to the very beginning. I think I’ll tell you about it. The first week of the month it became much too apparent that we needed a new washer and dryer. I was running the spin cycle a couple times, sometimes up to…

Anniversary Trip – Part 3

[Written Thursday, April 18] When last I typed we were sitting in Starbuck’s and contemplating another try at the park we couldn’t find to see waterfalls. We found our way to the park. It was the same one we’d stopped at, but maintenance crews were in front of the trail entrance so we didn’t see…

Anniversary Trip – Part 2

[Written Wednesday, April 17] I’m currently writing from Starbucks in Canandaiga. It has wifi. We needed a fix. That and some Starbucks goodness. So we didn’t hit any antique stores yesterday. Oh, we saw them. They’re everywhere. It was overwhelming. I felt like a kid at Disneyland with no E tickets. Which won’t make a…

Finally we got dressed and Michele came over to take us exploring. Mom and Dad stayed put and we girls went to Aztec Ruins National Monument. When I say…

An Island Called Long*

*Thank you to Dan R. for the titleThis past weekend Todd and I took off for a much needed get away on Long Island. It was the first time we’ve ever left the kids home alone and I feel it was a success because: a) they didn’t kill or even maim each other; b) police…

New York, New York

I have created a picture history of my day yesterday. I wasn’t comfortable taking Precious with me and I don’t have a small, pocket camera so I got all these pictures on-line. First Katie and I had to drive through You-Know-Where. For some reason the car won’t make the trek without a Venti White Chocolate…

The Hotel Room

Tuesday I showed you the public areas of the Waldorf. Now here’s a little tour of our room. Our very own pretty little entry chandelier A too dark picture of the windows. I should have closed the blinds so you could see the incredible window treatments. The closet and the TV armoire with the snack…

Welcome to the Waldorf Astoria

I didn’t take my camera to NYC with me because it’s so big and bulky, but Katie had hers and we both have camera phones. So these aren’t the best pictures ever, but they’re good enough to give you a decent idea of our weekend. This post will be pictures of the public spaces of…
