Blazing hot in the Northeast


We're definitely not the only ones baking.  I'm not complaining though because our summer season is much too short!

So this blogging proves to be challenging sometimes.  Figuring out how to link up, etc.  If anyone has any help tools or instructions for me I'd be grateful.

I live in upstate N.Y. and yesterday The Saratoga Track opened.  Why they ran the horses in that heat I don't know??  It is suppose to be cooler tomorrow so I may go then.  Saratoga is a beautiful city in the summer with many things to do.

I'm going on a 9 day cruise in less than 2 weeks and I'm hoping to be able to blog about it.

Going to go clothes shopping this weekend for some crusie attire : )

Have a great weekend!

Enjoying my space

Happy Independence Day!  Today I have the day off from work, of course, since it is a holiday.  So far I haven't left the peace and quiet of my home.   I enjoy the solitude of my house.  It is like a safe haven for me.  I was invited to a picnic/party down by the river.  Fireworks will be going off at 9 15 pm.  I thought about going for a slight time but realized it would just impede my peace.  Invariably there would be loud people who had too much to drink and that just doesn't allow me to be at peace.

Instead I have puttered around my house, sorted through a bunch of mail and junk mail and did a few chores.  I intend to spend the afternoon reading and working on this blog that I just started.  I have so very much to learn.

The great thing about my house is that it sets in a lot surrounded by much greenery and nature and allows for soothing sounds.  Lots of chirping birds!

I also have two dogs here that like to be kept company.  They would be Roxy and Sid.
