Spring Fever

With spring here and summer right at its heels, I started thinking of my garden. Last year I had trouble remembering what herb was what, because my plant names were written on Popsicle sticks. I love to plant tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, flowers and herbs, so I decided to make these copper plant stakes. (Copper tooling found in craft stores-- Michaels or Hobby Lobby).

The wind and rain won't destroy them and no more guessing!

Day Three: New York City

Day Three...
What a whirlwind of activity!

We arrived at Penn Station at 9:00 A.M. and left at 9:30 P.M. In that 12 1/2 hours we visited Central Park, the Guggenheim, The Met, watched a taping of David Letterman and visited his neighborhood--even dropping in to visit Rupert. Then we visited Times Square and finished the evening on the observation deck of The Empire State Bldg. We walked most of the way. WHEW!

Thanks Sis and Ners for the wonderful Vacation!

Day Two: Glenmont Estate

Today we visited the Thomas Edison home, Glemont Estate, in West Orange, New Jersey.

We also visited the Morristown NHP- Washington's Headquarters Museum again. My daughter works there and she gave us a behind the scenes tour. Here is a tiny book she showed us.

We also made a diner stop...they're all over the place in Jersey.

Day One: Barnegat Bay

This week we are at my daughter and son in- law's home. On our first day, we went to the Jersey Shore. We've seen such beautiful things!

This is a pic of penny.
She was looking for just the right cookie recipe to bake for dessert!
