Oh, Sandy.

Waiting for the worst of Sandy to hit.

Today - the power has been going on, and off, since noonish.  

Lots of branches, some of them really big, in the front, and back yards.  

Not all that much rain, thankfully.   But, the worst is yet to come, or so they say on the news.

If the power should go out for good, I'll be going to bed early.  A little extra rest I could use. 

I should have taken some pictures earlier, but, didn't.    Tomorrow, on the other hand, I'll have to do just that.

So, be safe my East coast neighbors!

Last summer...a day trip into the city

I realized, after reading a post on someone else's blog, that I hadn't ever posted pictures we took at the South Street Seaport last summer.   So, here we go.   



 Looking forward to more days spent in the city.   Thinking...Washington Square Park, Union Square Market, more time spent in Central Park!

A Favorite Place

Planting Fields Arboretum - State Historic Park.  Oyster Bay, NY.   

On a bright, warm day at the end of March, we decided, kind of spur of the moment, to jump in the car, and take a drive to the arboretum.   I realized it had been six years since we'd last been there.   Six years.   We used to go so often.   There have been changes - a new visitor/information center was made in the Hay Barn.  There is an actual place to buy food, and beverages.   We used to pack lunches, and take coins for the vending machine.  

It was a great day, a day that I think we all needed.  A day away from TV, and the computer.  Though - there were still iPhones to look at, and texting done.   But, it was in the fresh air, and we were together.
