More to Come...


in a week! In one week I will be in one of my favorite places, sitting in either an Adirondack chair or perhaps the swing and watching this beautiful river flow by. These pictures are from a visit two summers ago, but I will have new ones from my annual visit to the beautiful St. Lawrence River area to visit Kathy and Jess. This is the fantastic view from the house and I can't wait to be there. I've got one of these photos as my computer screen saver at work and I smile each time I see it.
I am so ready for this visit...for the company and the laughter we will share, the scenery and visiting with friends I've met over the 36 years I have been blessed with travel there.
The rest of the week has been relatively quiet. Work, reading the NY Times on the subway, grocery shopping last night and book club tonight. We met on the roof of one of my friend's buildings, which had a lovely view of Manhattan. Poached salmon, fresh summer fruit and good conversation made it a great night.
Wishing all of you evenings of good conversation, fresh summer fruit and warm breezes, and of course, a prayer for Amy.

Oh wow....the lapping of the water, the smell of fresh air. Sounds like you're going to be experiencing a little bit of heaven. You lucky duck!
Have a marvy time.
(And, I mean that sincerely, eventho I'm green with envy!)

Looks lovely and relaxing. Hope the time is perfect.

What time should we be there to go with you?

Or even visit New York - having a book club on the roof - I'm in?

So how do you grocery shop there - daily? Weekly and drive a car?

Kind of like "Life in the City".

Oh! I hope you have the very best of times and return relaxed and refreshed. Right as I start The First Day of School in First Grade. There is a balance in the universe.

Have a great week! And how cool to have a get together on a roof. That would be such a different thing to do.
