Just ask my husband, I hate making the bed. I don’t see why it has to be crisp and proper every morning. We are just going to get back in and mess it up again in a few hours. It works perfectly fine to get up, throw the covers up so it isn’t a complete… Continue reading Make Your Bed!

I think I’ve mentioned I have several kids, currently all teens. Since I have several, I’m going to be grammatically incorrect and use they or them, or any plural form, when discussing them individually or as a whole.

Battery Park was my destination as I wanted a picture of Lady Liberty since the values she has espoused for so long have been under attack, really since 9/11,… Continue reading Somewhere Different
Yesterday was a busy day of sightseeing. We made it to the new Hudson Yards shopping mall, touched Madison Square Gardens, climbed to the top of the Vessel, marveled at the engineering of The Shed, saw Macy’s, ate at Keen’s Steakhouse (opened in 1885 and still in the same location), and saw Come From Away… Continue reading Always Look Up, and to the Side

Last year at this time, no one I believe, could have predicted where I, and my family, would be at this time this year. There were things we were thinking… Continue reading Reflections
I am in New York City with my husband and the Papas. It is our annual trip to the Big Apple for Broadway, good food, sightseeing, and of course, great conversation. As is tradition, I began my early morning walkabouts to see what I might photograph and reflect upon for the year. The main thing… Continue reading Hello New York!
