The little notification beep on my phone tells me that there’s motion in my backyard. Sometimes it’s the Cardinal enjoying a snack. Weeks ago, when this was just beginning, we put a little birdseed on the deck to see what would happen. After a few days the cardinals appeared. A sweet couple - bright red with a black face and soft brownish-red. They seem unaware of what’s going on — except I’ve heard that the birds have reduced the volume of their chirping because they’re not ...

This blog is for both grandparents and their children. Being a Grandparent in this time of pandemic- with physical isolation and social distancing--is difficult. We also recognize that parenting young children in these times was tough on our children.A response has evolved.A while ago, I offered to “virtually babysit” my 3 year old grandson. Not that he was left alone, but I was able to FaceTime and engage him for about a half hour whil his parents were in the next room havin...

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Well most of us don’t take a lot of notice, especially in these work at home times. But every time I log onto a Zoom or WebEx meeting, for a brief few seconds, I see an image of myself, blown up in full color. It actually is a bit startling as this is really how others will see me. But what do you see of yourself? I see more gray hair, maybe this is more distinguished looking or shows I have stood the test of some time period. In...

I’m being inundated with “advice”. It’s coming in all forms: emails, drop downs,, on tv and radio, and by word of mouth from a safe distance. I admit. I cannot process all of this advice. I’m even having trouble sorting out what I may want to follow up on at a later time. Smothered by advice in the time of pandemic....

I am sitting in our living room and gaze across at the dining table which now serves as my office desk. (I’ve never spent so much time at the dining room table as I have during the last few weeks.) I also gaze upon the artwork that surrounds me and some of the studio glass in the room. There’s the Blue Cloud by the glass artist Nancy Callan. It was one of first pieces in our modest collection and one of my favorites. I always marvel at the beauty of the work. Nowadays I st...

  Now, more than ever, it is crucial to support local businesses that are struggling to stay alive.We have a few local restaurants that are offering take-out and we alternate among them. We cleaned out our winter clothes and took them over to the dry cleaner who is suffering because no one is wearing business clothes to the office that need laundering.These businesses are the bedrock of our community. We want them to survive. Please try........

We are members of a loyalty program at a local food store. Recently went for a walk and stopped by for takeout. As we were rung up, the cashier commented on the amount of rewards balance in our account. Did we want to use our points? Thoughts ran through our heads. Use the points or pay cash? And other thoughts. Will the store survive or will our points become worthless? And then…. They could use the cash now.   We paused... paid cash...and a few points were put on the accou...

The March 1st deadline is quickly coming. It’s the day that single use plastic bags are banned in New York State. With certain exceptions, you will no longer take your groceries home in those plastic bags. As I thought about it, I decided to check on my inventory of reusable bags. I first checked the glove compartment in my car and found four bags neatly rolled and ready for use. There are more at home. Are you ready for March 1st? ...

The only certainty is change; how do we handle change? We checked into Ink48, a favorite hotel of ours in the City, on Friday, January 31st. As we checked in, we were advised that, as of midnight, the hotel would no longer be part of the Kimpton hotel chain. We had always known it as a Kimpton. Will we be going back to Ink48? Does the change give us the opportunity to explore other options? Coincidentally, Ink48 was not the only hotel to recently change its brand aff...
