My Summer Favorites and More! (2)

Isn’t summer great?!  I must say that some of my fondest childhood memories are during the summer time!   Maybe because school was out, the weather was warm, lots of family gatherings and outdoor activities – like the yearly Italian Feasts my elementary school always held – good old Our Lady of Victory in Mt. Vernon, NY.  Going to Tibbitts Brook Pool in Yonkers, NY and to Glen Island Beach in New Rochelle, NY.   And, one of my most FAVORITE memories is going to the movies to watch JAWS.  I was 10 years old and that movie STILL sends chills up my spine!  I LOVE the summer!

IT’S SPRING – LET’S GO GARDENING!

  Spring is in full bloom all around here in Connecticut and New York.  Everyday it’s getting “greener” and more colorful – Yeah!  The only sad part for me during Spring time is, once again, being reminded that I do not have a “green thumb“.  My brother inherited the gardening skills in our family.
