October Snow?!

The other day it was snowing! This is a rare occurence for this time of year in Massachusetts. It was at first raining and then it turned to snow, snowflakes that looked like cotton balls! Luckily, nothing stuck to the ground though because of the wetness from the rain.October 21 008October 21 012

October -

So I know this picture looks like it has nothing to do with Fall, but for some reason I can't help but think of the seasons changing when I look at this photo...maybe its just because my apartment is so cold! (I do prefer cold over hot!)

So, to make this more fun, Can You Guess What This Is?


Fall in New England is one of my favorite times...more pictures to come very soon:)

Around the Barn

Last week I visited one of my best friends who lives in St. Augustine, Forida. It is such a beautiful town, I really enjoyed my time there. Here are some pictures from the barn where she keeps her horse and also cares for another horse.

Orzo Pasta Salad

For those end of summer BBQ's or year-round house parties -


Cook 1 box Orzo Pasta, drain and let it cool off. Once cooled, add in:

1 can red kidney beans

1 can small black olives

1 red onion (chopped)

Carrots and Celery (chopped)

Cheese, chopped in small squares ( I used Sharp Cheddar but you can add any kind you like)

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1-2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar


Mix well! Other ingredients you may wish to add: pepperoni, artichokes, green pepper, tomatoes


*Just a tip - add a bit of salad dressing before serving (not more than a couple tablespoons. Italian, Greek or a Vinegarette work well)

Last week I was in Greece. I stay on the island called Evia which is a pretty big island right next to the main land. I have been going there since I was a very little kid:) Only recently have we discovered this beautiful beach called Kalamos -

~Memorial Day 2009~

Yesterday on Memorial Day I went to Marblehead, MA which is a quaint little town, North of Boston, and on the Coast. They have nice looking houses, cute shopping boutiques and some seafood restaurants. The weather was absolutely perfect!

Great Weather Weekend

This weekend I visited my younger sister at her University located in Amherst, MA. The weather was so great, 91 degrees and sunny! It was a bit on the "too hot" side but I seriously cannot complain after having such a long winter. It was nice to see my sister; we spent a lot of time being outside on the campus.

Easter Sunday

I know it has been too long since I have last posted. I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter Sunday:-)

Favorite kind of car in my favorite kind of scene -

Back roads around Charlestown

Although most places besides coffee shops were closed today; it was nice to walk around and see the signs of Spring! (Yes, it is still cold here!)

Wispy Fence-

Which do you think looks better? In color or in black and white? I couldn't decide.

Tree trunks from this perspective really are so much better:)
