January 11, 2013

I have discovered the joy of playing games again. I’ve been working very long hours for a few years now, and I think I was starting to break down a bit (not in a good way). So I have intentionally started to set aside a period of time, when I can, to just read a […]

On Whiteface Mountain

September 23, 2012


Ever hear of Whiteface Mountain? It’s in the Adirondack Mountain range. It’s also where the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics were held. I am madly in love with Whiteface Mountain. We went up to the summit last week. It’s the only ADK mountain you can drive up (near to) the summit. Franklin Delano Roosevelt apportioned […]

October 11, 2011


Monday came and went with a blink of an eye! Since it was a holiday, of sorts (Columbus Day), we took a day trip up to the High Peaks area of the Adirondack Mountain Range in New York State. Autumn is glowing in all its splendor there. I’ll have more photos and some interesting stories […]

Excellence on Ice

September 29, 2011


When visiting Blue Mountain Lake, NY, last week, we visited the Adirondack Museum, one of the largest museums in Upstate New York. It took us two days to get through! There, we learned just about everything there is to know about the Adirondack Park region. The museum had a section dedicated to Lake Placid, a […]

I’m Back!

September 23, 2011


It’s good to be back home, although I say that with mixed feelings. We spent a week in the Adirondack Mountains and IT WAS INCREDIBLE. If I could buy property up there, I SO would. I have never met anyone who visited the Adirondacks and didn’t gush and gush about how wonderful it is there. […]

Back From Virginia

May 16, 2011


I’m back! I told you I needed a vacation. On very short notice (but in the works for the past ten years), I finally got to visit my brother in Virginia. It was WONDERFUL!!! Oh, it is so good to be back home again (especially after a 10 hour drive, ugh), but we were so […]

A Great Holiday Homes Search Site

Comments Off on A Great Holiday Homes Search Site

Our recent stay at a bed and breakfast gave me a hankering to hit the travel trails again. It was SO good to get away, but the time was much too short (just two days). Staying at a home is much, much more enjoyable than a hotel. I dislike hotels just because they seem a […]
