Irene gave her best shot but........... wasn't all that bad.  Yes we did have lots of rain...around 4+ inches, & wind but not a strong as they predicted,  of course we lost power but then again when we live we lose power constantly!  Most of the time for no reason.  It went out about 8:00am & came back on around 4:30pm.  It just meant a very lazy day reading every section of the sunday paper & doing every crossword in it.  I even managed to complete the sudoku.......that never happens as the sunday one is the hardest!

 These were taken around ninish.
 See this branch went right through the shed roof...there is about 3 feet of it inside!
 This poor bedraggled bird was one of a few sheltering & getting some food around lunch time!
 This is a "redneck" chandelier!

 This is almost at the end of the worst part...taken around 4:00pm
 This is the Alplaus Kill which is up the street from us.
We took a ride to see how things were in the neighborhood.......lots of trees down but nothing really bad.  We spent about an hour after dinner cleaning up part of the yard but it is still really windy so I'm sure it will be a few days until we get it all done.

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!
