Ice Covered Tree

While this photo was taken in 2008 @ Saratoga Battlefield, it reminds me of my childhood memory of an ice storm during the early 70's that shut down parts of the North East for about 10 days. We were without power for 2 weeks in rural Salem Ct, and actually it wasn't totally a bad thing.

Coffee Maker

Freecycle had a free cuisinart automatic grind n brew coffee maker up for grabs. I just happened to google it (mine is plastic, not exactly the same as the picture) and oh it's like 100 bux at the store. BUT the one I got has a broken gadget spring so you can't serve coffee before it's done brewing..... WELL DUH! You're not supposed to b/c it's not going to be even. Hehe.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.

About Me

My photo
I am where I do and am not where I don't. Not what I was or will be, just 'me'.
