This week, after the crazy rush of the holidays, I feel like we're getting back to normal.
Doctory stuff? Done! Real estate craziness? Settled! Work? Ovah!  Well, not really - just over for a week. So: time for a road trip! Ulster County, New York. Nice place to be. It's country, no doubt. But it's also a little sophisticated. Some great shopping, gorgeous scenery and wonderful food. The Gunks lurk around every corner. The weather can be imposing. Thunderclouds, black as pitch, loom overhead. The blue sky will not yield. Hop in the car, get lost and find yourself - if you are wild; quiet; introspective; outrageous; dramatic; earthy; hippie; slick; saucy; fun; simple; authentic. It's all here...keep watching.


I've been away for awhile...navigating through holidays, medical scares, busted computers and information lost (thank goodness for Picasa). When last heard from, you  may remember, way back in September we were preparing a new home for Mom.Well, she moved in around the beginning of October - it turned out great and she loves it! The fresh colors of peach, pink and persimmon, tempered with a creamy warm tan and rich mocha, give the little cottage a cozy yet whimsical look - perfect for our favorite grandmother!
