  • Busy Saturday (part II)

    So we moved on from Sean’s birthday party with it’s clown/magician and pinata to a celebration for Theo’s Christening which featured the beautiful spread you see on the right. Small talk centered around the usual suburban topics, schools, property taxes, those in the neighborhood that totally bug you with their attitude of “competitive hapiness,” beating […]

  • Living in New England

    Something about living in the Northeast, turns your blood thicker or something. Driving around it seemed so warm, I rolled the window down and enjoyed the fresh air. Turned the radio up, some fast picking Bluegrass, I could smell Spring in the air. The sun was setting, the sky looked glorious, then the DJ came […]

  • It’s still not over

    Just when I thought we were past this most recent storm. . . Wet snow will overspread the area from the southwest by late evening.

  • Winter

    We got snowed in last weekend with over ten inches. Tyler and I jumped into a neighbor’s 4×4 and hitched a ride up to Belle Mountain, the local sledding hill. We trudged up to the top and faced into the freezing wind to a magnificent view of the entire Hopewell Valley covered in snow. After […]

  • Local Vineyard in New Jersey

    We have a local vineyard. Our friends brought over a bottle of their 2001 Merlot and it was not bad at all.

  • New Hope & Ivy Railroad

    New Hope & Ivy Railroad

    A banner weekend for weather which we took advantage of by heading out early to get a table at our favorite Cafe at Rosemont where we met up with our friends and their kids. After a Papaya & Brie omlet and other goodies, we spend a lazy afternoon in New Hope and Lambertville skipping stones […]
