Weekend Catch-up

Weekend Catch-up I meant to blog this weekend, but my computer was in limbo. Honest! Actually, Denis went and totally cleaned up my hard drive and re-installed everything for me. Of course, this is a rare thing to have to do to a mac, but I had about 4 different installations of different versions of … [Read more…]


Mmmmm…. I’ve just been introduced to the best bagels ever to be had on this planet. I mean, I’ve had NYC bagels. They’re good. Rochester bagels, well, they’re better than no bagels. But Brownstein’s bagels are the best. It’s a really good thing they’re nowhere near on my way to work, or I’d be shaped … [Read more…]


Yippee! It’s that time of year again…football season! There is nothing I like better than coming home from Wegman’s on Sunday morning, putting on a pot of chili, and sitting down just in time for the kickoff… Of course, it’s really only pre-season, and a little too warm yet for chili, but just watching football … [Read more…]

Sew What?!?

Sew What?!? I’m in the middle of about a million projects. Ok, maybe not that many, but there are a lot! I’m making a wedding gift. Can’t say what ’cause I think the future recipient might read this occasionally… I have a couple of cross-stitch pieces to do for my twin nieces. Christmas is coming, … [Read more…]

New Neighbors

New Neighbors I have new neighbors. The funny thing is, I didn’t know my old ones were moving out until the moving truck showed up in their driveway today. No “For Sale” sign or anything! One of my new neighbors is apparently a sheriff…at least, there’s a sheriff’s car in the driveway. I’m never quite … [Read more…]


Sunday I meant to do a lot of stuff today – re-wallpaper my family room, work on my master’s project, etc. – that just didn’t get done. Instead I spent the day helping my parents haul out 27 years worth of junk from their basement. You know, all the stuff that gets accumulated through several … [Read more…]


Uh-oh! Jenny’s blog is being held hostage! Note to self: never let Denis post in any future absence – who knows what he’d demand (a new titanium powerbook?) for my blog’s return… :)

Heat Wave

Heat Wave I live in Rochester for a reason – I don’t like hot days. Not one little bit. The only reason I can stand them is that we have central air, air conditioning in our Jetta, and an inground pool. We’re going to hit 90+ for the umpteenth day in a row here, and … [Read more…]

I almost forgot!

I almost forgot! We also went to Krispy Kreme with Denis’ parents and aunts – they had never experienced the warm gooey goodness that is a fresh, hot Krispy Kreme donut. Mmmm. And, of course, we had to go to mega-Wegmans, because that is a tour stop for all out-of-town guests. For some reason, the … [Read more…]

I’ve figured it out

I’ve figured it out – just like some people have a biological urge to have children, some people also have a biological urge to encourage other people to have children. It doesn’t matter what family event we go to – now that we’ve been married for just over two years, the first words out of … [Read more…]
