New Year's Eve

I know - don't tell me - I'm way behind on my posts. Popster & I always go to first night in Saratoga but this year we really had to think about it even tho we already had our tickets. To begin with we had around 9 inches of snow that day & the weather report was for temps in the teens with a wind chill of around zero.....& they were being conservative at that!!!! This was the 13th one & we have been every year but the first so we put on a brave face & several layers of clothes & off we went. We parked our car near Congress Park as usual which was a bonus this year as that's where they were holding the fireworks at midnight. We headed up Broadway - which was into the wind - & I was dying!!! It's was sooooooooo cold!!!! After getting to Center City we went into a venue for a show & decided to stay there for the next one so we didn't have to go outside. Then from there we could get to the hotel, again without going outside, & there were two different shows there. After that we headed back down to the park & went into the first place that had room so we could hang out until midnight. We ended up seeing shows we didn't plan on seeing but enjoyed anyway.
When it got close to midnight we headed over to the park but there weren't many people around - should have been our first clue! (Last year there was around 12,000) We couldn't hear any music or the countdown & then the fireworks started & we were looking at each other saying "How lame is this" Should have been our second clue! Turns out we were standing in the WRONG spot & should have been up a block!

It was okay - we survived, didn't freeze to death & weren't far from our car.

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
