A Little Help Here?

I’ve been preoccupied with daily life, and I haven’t spent a great deal of time planning this summer. But starting on Friday, I will be spending a week at a rustic camp near Lake Placid. Without an internet connection. I know: it’s Wednesday!  Why didn’t I think about this?!?  My current plan is to do … [Read more…]

End of July (already!)

Jeez louise.  Once again I just pretty much exhausted myself before I exhausted the items to list.  So here’s what I’ve got for this week: Throughout the Week: Annie Get Your Gun continues at the Park Playhouse in Albany Tuesdays-Sunday at 8 pm.

Wimp-out Post

I was busy all day, and we have guests spending the night–four little girls are piled up in J’s room.  So I’m wimping out and sharing another blog with you instead.  Saratoga Woods and Waterways has lovely photographs and descriptions of local natural wonders.  Recently, there was a whole series of cute pictures of a … [Read more…]

Don’t forget that William K. Sanford (Colonie) Library has tons of activities–so many that I got overwhelmed early on and decided … [Read more…]

Phew! Anyone Else Exhausted?

I updated the weekly post with a bunch of new items, so you should check it out again. There’s so much going on.  I’m a little torn, because I was all set to go to SPAC for the Ballet Family Night on Friday, but then I remembered that we promised Fireworks in Schenectady.   And then, … [Read more…]

Summer Week–Now with Updates!

Oh my gosh, you guys.  I just have to stop.  We have a perfect storm of events that’s preventing me from completing today’s post.  First, not to whine, but I’m tired.  So. much. laundry.  (Luckily it was a good drying day!)  And the grocery.  And just the utter post-vacation shambles.  Second, everybody’s all excited about … [Read more…]

4th of July Weekend

Okay, I’m just going to admit it right now: I’m probably going to have missed some fun this weekend.  Please feel free to add items to comments.  Generally, I have a list that’s going already, and then I search exhaustively just before I post.  But, there are shouts of laughter from the hot tub.  The … [Read more…]

Like Thunder and Lightning

We’re in a big ol’ beach house nestled between a bunch of other big ol’ beach houses.  This is the second time that we’ve stayed at this house, and last time, our next-door neighbors were a bunch of fraternity-sorority types.  When we arrived we feared the worst, but they were surprisingly quiet and conscientious.
