I made a trip to Costco this morning to replenish my supplies, including ice cream. They sell a wonderful organic brand, packed 2 half gallons to a box, and that's what I wanted. When I got home I found I had bought two boxes, 4 half gallons of ice cream! I can barely fit the ice cream plus other frozen items I bought into my freezer!
Then, I bought a bag of dried apricots. Later at home when I was putting things away after nibbling on a few items, I found the bag of apricots had the tear strip pulled off. I honestly don't remember doing it, and I'm nearly certain the checker and/or the clerk who stacked the items in my cart would have noticed the opened bag. Do I eat the apricots or don't I? I've already tasted 2 or 3 of them so I suppose I might as well conclude that I opened the bag at home.
One afternoon back in New York, the young woman who sometimes picks up the kids from school when Mike and Sandy both have to work late, brought them home and took us all to see the house she and her husband are building. It's in the village of Wappinger's Falls, and after seeing her house she asked if I'd like to see the Falls. I didn't even think about the fact that there were Falls in Wappinger's Falls, and we ended up driving to see them plus around the whole village. Both Denise and her husband grew up here, both sets of parents live nearby in the same houses they always had, and I loved the older style buildings that are kept in such beautiful condition.
The Falls are mere trickles now compared to what it will be like in spring or after heavy rains/snows.
And looking down from the other side of the bridge:
The Falls should be much different next spring, and I will try to get pictures when I go back in June.
This is Denise on the bridge:

I am so tired I hardly know what I'm doing, but I haven't had jet lag for years either. I'm trying to catch up on blog reading and am making a little headway.
TV is so frustrating! I came back to find my set isn't working properly - I finally can get tv programs on it but haven't been able to access my recorded programs. It will take more brain power than I can spare for another day or two.
