Outside the sky is dark and stormy, wind is blowing and leaves are tossing about past my window as I write. I expect the rain will begin to fall at any moment and I welcome the excitement of receiving an autumn storm. I'm having a cup of half and half coffee and hot cocoa, what about you? Let's enjoy the coziness of being inside on a stormy day, sharing ideas about creativity, holiday plans,...

Last weekend my husband and I took a three-day road trip exploring the Thousand Islands area of New York, the Adirondack Mountains, and a drive back home via Route 67 from Saratoga Springs going west toward the Buffalo/Rochester area.
