What are you waiting for?

Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life.  Happiness
is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.

Who are you?

Springtime Sentiments

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was greater than the risk it took to bloom

Boys Bathroom -Before and After

Behold the boys bathroom makeover-before and after.
And the reason that I have been so tired at work ;-)  

The bathroom that our three sons use and 
that we had not so affectionately
referred to as the "gas station" bathroom
has been transformed.

Summer Vacation

Here it is 4th of July week 
I am deep in thought planning a summer vacation

I confess that I have not booked flights 
or made hotel reservations…

In fact, I am having a hard time finding a weekend between 
now and August school start that isn't already promised 
to lacrosse games, baseball season end parties or overnights with friends.

I will not go another summer without a trip to the water

Back east…near the coast
Where the boys can get sand in their toes, 
feel the sun and the sea on their faces,
listen to the tides roll in and roll out,
gaze at the sun disappearing behind the marshes, 
smell the wood burning from a beach bonfire and
bask in the sweet ambience of summer.

I am thinking of upstate New York
the state where I was born 

This rental "cottage" on Schooner Island 
in Alexandria Bay
looks perfect

This is where you will find me soon
