a week in the life

If this blog truly "requires thought", then it's no wonder I haven't had much to say recently. Here are my highlights of a gray, snowy, freezy week in January:

1. I talked to my sister for 71 minutes on the phone. She lives in North Carolina. She is getting married in April.

2. I snagged an entire box of bananas for only three dollars at Save-a-Lot. I then proceeded to share them with a friend and her large family, as we couldn't possibly eat them all in a timely fashion!

3. A trip to Lake Placid gave me a chance to hang out with Friend #32. We strolled through town awhile before lunching at The Cottage on the lake. One doesn't "eat lunch" there. One lunches. From our window-table, we watched a team of sled dogs circle the lake. We declined to dine al fresco, as we preferred watching other people freeze their tails off while we ate spinach-artichoke dip .

4. The Orchestra of Northern New York's Concerto competition was on Saturday, and the student whom I accompanied won third place.

5. I bought a groovy dress for the sheer fun of it. It is very retro and has droopy bell-sleeves. When the temperature goes above 30 degrees, I may consider actually wearing it. Paired with tights and beads, I will look like a throwback from the 60's.

I apologize for this drivel, but it's the best I could come up with.

I, for one, am happy to hear your drivel, dearest!

Had fun with you at the Cottage. When can we go again? Need pictures of me with the bears.
