Fall Lake Pictures

The end of fall means no more shorts, tank tops and flip-flops. For this girl (yes, I still like being called a girl.  The older I get, the more pleased I am when I’m referred to as a girl and not as ma’am), that means it’s time to run away to warmer climate, despite the…

Spring Has Sprung FINALLY at Our House

spring has sprung

Spring has sprung at our house!  Finally! The winter seemed to drag on and on and when this first brave crocus popped its head up in early April, I thought, finally, spring is here!

Scenes from Our Beautiful Lake

As summer draws to a close (sniff), I look back at some of my favorite photos of the lake in spring and summer.  This is one of my favorite shots of our beautiful lake. I am a warm weather person, happiest in tank top, shorts and flip-flops, so the coming of fall always makes me sad.  It…

How to Have a Thriving Garden on Beginner’s Dumb Luck

I am about to reveal another secret about myself (besides the fact that I am a klutz).  I used to have a black thumb.  I couldn’t keep any plants alive.  But ever since we moved to this house on the lake, I figured out how to have a thriving garden on beginner’s dumb luck. I was known as…

There is life outside NYC

I lived in New York City for over 15 years and when I moved more than an hour outside of the city into a life on a lake, my city friends asked me – What do you do all day up there? I can understand their skepticism.  In my 20’s I said to myself, I…
