I can’t believe today is the 22nd of December, and it’s almost 2015!
It seems like yesterday when we dropped off our freshman son off at college and my daughter left for her semester abroad to Australia (we got to visit her in November).
Remember when you were a kid. The school days passed by so slowly, and the summers ran by us full speed. Those days are just passing memories now.
First, I want to apologize for not being up to date on all your posts. It’s not for lack of interest! For some reason, my notification emails are not getting to me. I have looked, I still am following all of you, so not sure what is going on. It really makes it easy when you have an email to click on! I just don’t get to my reader like I used to. I’m just too busy being busy.
I want to thank all my fellow bloggers for all the support over the years. I have (virtually) met so many kind, smart, interesting and helpful people in this blogging world.
Happy Holidays and a Healthy New YEAR!

I love watching football, IF the Patriots are playing. Last Sunday we had the opportunity not only to go to the game, but, also to be on the field while the teams were warming up. I made sure I had my camera, 2 charged batteries, extra memory cards, and I also brought my 100-400m lens. Unfortunately I dropped it at the security table and it BROKE :(.
We arrived at Gillette Stadium 2 hours early. We wanted to get to the tables close to the windows in the Putnam Club. We figured we could use it as a basecamp to warm up. It snowed on Sunday, was really cold, and all the seats were damp and cold!
The Patriots were played the Broncos. It was an exciting game to watch, lots of action from both teams. We even got to see a trick play that didn’t go very well. Third down and long yardage, the Patriots lined up to punt. Then the whole Special teams ran off the field with the Bronco’s falling in suit. Unfortunately the Offense Line didn’t get back in time to execute the play. It really was a sight to see!
Here are some highlights from the day. The Patriots won 43-21. We had a great time.
These pictures were taken last month in Aramingo, a suburb of Philadelphia.
Here I am sitting at my computer. I got an email from Minted.com. (this is the site where I have entered my pictures in some contests and actually have won, and sold some), reminding me that voting has begun for the last contest I had entered.
I went to the minted.com site and what did I see?
My picture, right there on the front page of their website. I was shocked and pretty surprised. I sent a link to my husband, and he told me when he went to their site, he was directed to a different home page, not the one that I had been directed to. I was reminded how sophisticated internet direct marketing can be. Everything you do online can been seen, and companies will take advantage of that! They show you what they think you want to see. Increasing the odds that you may buy what you were, looking at previously.
So, the point of this is not to rant about what gets shown to who and why. It’s another plea for your help, and ask you again to vote for ME.
These are the images I have submitted these pictures.

Thanks for all the support, I really appreciate it!
I haven’t posted a blog, or even looked at my reader.
Here is a link to what I have been up to in pictures. Click on the ferris wheel to watch it.
I also opened a store on the minted site, click the picture to see my storefront.
I would love feedback, if you have any to give.
Today was a beautiful day to enjoy the Boston Public Gardens, and to watch the swans, ducks and Swan Boats glide by.
I know the title sounds like Ed McMahon, asking Johnny Carson’s Carnac, (A link for those too young) on the Tonight Show.
This morning, like every other morning. I opened my refrigerator door, and looked inside. What was I was going to eat for breakfast today. I’m sure everyone else does this. You look, and see nothing you really want. This morning I was drawn to a wrinkly old zucchini, and an ancient shallot. Both, ready for the trash bin. I decided to cook something with them.
I washed the zucchini gave it a quick chop, peeled the shallot and diced it as well. I thought they would be good sautéd, so I heated up some evoo. First went in the shallots, they cooked for a couple of minutes. Then the diced zucchini, with a pinch of kosher salt. I let them sizzle for a few minutes, but felt it needed some liquid for it to cook thoroughly. Back into the fridge I went. I found some delicious tomato soup, that my husband had made on Sunday. This would be perfect, not just for cooking but also for added flavor. I poured the soup into the pan, put on a lid, and cooked it for another minute. I opened the lid and thought, NOW WHAT?
Back into the fridge, aha, eggs. I whipped up 2 eggs (only one yolk), dumped them into the sauté pan….
Voila….a delicious omelette.
Oh, the flower… This was the first thing I noticed when I walked into the kitchen this morning.
Thank YOU David xo
