Monday news

We had an exciting weekend with news that my nephew Jeremy and his wife Natacha are expecting a baby boy in August.  Jeremy is only 10 years younger than me so he is more like a little brother than a nephew.  I need to search out some cute knitting patterns and get busy making presents for this little one.

In other news our friends brought home Stanley, a 14 week old Chow puppy.

He is adorable and surprisingly heavy for a puppy.
Season 5 of Mad Men started last night.  I am a huge fan.  Don scoundrel...I have a huge crush on you.  The part at the party where his new wife performs for him...uhm...awkward.

Scott and I are headed to NYC next month for a little getaway.  We are taking the train from Portland Maine, through Boston to NYC.  I'm excited....I went to NYC with my parents when I was 17 but that was a l-o-n-g time ago, and Scott has never been there.  We are staying at a hotel on Park Avenue...that is all I know.  Any tips on where we should go and what we should do...and most importantly where we should EAT?


  1. Oh my goodness, Stanley is SO cute!

    I love NY...haven't been in years though. I hope youe have a wonderful getaway. Are you going to see any shows?

  2. Man I am jonesin' for a trip to NYC. Have a frozen hot chocolate for me, would ya?

  3. That is one cute puppy and one lucky baby to get something knitted by you! NYC! How fun!
