Gabriel Royal - Remember Us - YouTube

I was waiting for my subway, when this guy started playing his cello. He had the entire station listening to him, and applauded when he finished. One woman on the other side yelled to get his name. I’m glad she did, because it’s awesome to listen to the song uninterrupted.

One of those only in NYC moments. Perfect for one of my last trips here for awhile.

We won yesterday, so we’re back today.  Our team name is Tummy Tickles. Don’t ask - it was a joke turned into vball team name.

This summer

Has been a bit of a doozy. One thing after the other…

I was reminded that sometimes it’s about reframing your story and looking at it from a different perspective.

With that in mind, yes, some really crappy things happened, but so did some really awesome things.

There is a really big adventure ahead and I need to look forward to it.

Today, celebrate every success and stop celebrating the failures.

We didn’t have these ice cream cone options in CA, or my parents just didn’t let me know it existed.

Happy Friday, folks!
This was our view Wednesday during our beach volleyball game. It was awesome.

Life’s been a little hectic but I can see it all coming together.

Happy 94th birthday to my grandma!  Grandpa and grandma have been such a big part of my life and made really great things happen for me - being able to go to college and get my master’s degree. They are the most generous people I have ever known, and I’m so glad they’ve been such a big part of my life.  

I spent many a Thursday at Grandma’s watching soap operas and her sew.  The freezer was stocked with delicious ice cream treats - drumsticks. And when my dad came home for lunch (he used to go to his childhood home for lunch everyday) we would have stouffers Mac and cheese and leave a Popsicle stick in her stick artwork. I’m sure it drove her crazy.  She loves her family and we all love her.

Vacation

Ever have that feeling where you just need to get away and go somewhere?

Well, I am feeling it big time. So last night I asked PS if he would be upset if I went to CA over Labor Day. He said if I really wanted to I could, but it was a lot of travel for only a couple days. I agreed and then he decided we should go away for a weekend.

We’ve both been under a lot of stress and there has been a lot going on. PS decided to go above and beyond and booked at the Mohonk Resort.

Has anyone been there? If so, what should we do?

Filed under so nice he really went above and beyond

Took the kayak out yesterday for a ride down the five mile river, into the sound, and on to fish island. It was perfect weather and the lobster roll and ice cream afterwards wasn’t bad either.

My dad built this dollhouse for me when I was about 5. He did most of the work by hand, and it wasn’t his first time making a dollhouse. He made one for my cousin back in the 70’s. It was painted blue because that was the color of our house at the time. My dad and I laid down every wood roof shingle by hand. 

He’s quite the craftsman. He sent me a text that said “Freaking renters!  Guess I have some fixing up to do.”  Josie must be getting old enough to play with it.

One thing I’ll never understand….

You can find literally anything on the Internet, except for reviews on Doctors.

Why is this not more of a thing?  I can find out if I’m going to like the food down the street, but I can’t find out if someone is going to make me feel better?

Just doesn’t make sense.
