The Rock

Mini Vaca

pie.gifTook a trip to Bully Hill Winery for lunch yesterday with the rest of the Cottage Crew. It was quite delish! Went boating, swimming, wake boarding, and sailing, and then had a tasty din-din at the Rock, followed by sumptuous blackberry pie and vanilla bean ice cream and a movie / slumber party by the water! So busy with planning trip, closing things up here, loose ends. More soon!


It seems like every time I have something to say here lately, it’s always about parties!! I’m not sure if this is a bad thing, but I guess it’s not because it sure feels good to me! So, anyways, per usual have been having lots of fun lately. Went to Watkins Glen last week–that was highly enjoyable! We counted 877 steps!! Thanks for all of your comments lately! I miss you all desperately too! Off for an excursion to S&A Boutique with Ani. Will fill you in on the details upon our return.


lake.bmpIt’s been a GREAT and BUSY past few days! On Thursday The Cottage Crew (Dave, Kristina and Matt) hosted a HOT summer BBQ party. Someone might have hijacked a boat, jumped off boat house roofs into The Mighty K, gone tandem water skiing, or consumed massive amounts of alcohol… pictures and more info to come soon.


squirt.gifJackie and I went to Pen Yan last night to see Finding Nemo–the new Disney movie that’s in theaters right now. It was so good!! It reminded me of The Little Mermaid a bit because all of the characters had very distinctive accents and because it was set under water. hee hee! The moving pictures were beautiful! The movie was made using Pixar, which is a special computer animation process that creates the actual images and things you see. It’s quite interesting! Pixar also created Toy Story and A Bug’s Life, but interestingly, I didn’t think that these movies looked at all alike! I guess that’s one of the nice features about being able to computer generate original artwork–it can look completely different with each movie! Anyways, Nemo was a great movie and I highly recommend it!

I’m heading home for a night on Tuesday to pick up mail, do laundry, and visit the fam and the house. It’s good to get a change of scenery every so often, don’t you think? Also, I have made a new resolution to “get out more” and see the fingerlakes area. Planned trips thus far include: Pen Yan Farmer’s Market and a day-long hike on The Fingerlakes Trail.

Yoga fleas

yoga.bmpI think that the weather here in Hammondsport has set a new record. It feels like it’s been raining every day for the past two weeks!! AIEEE!! When will it end!?!?!

I joined a great yoga class today! Woot! It’s an hour and a half long twice a week–our instructor is extremely good at leading meditations. Today she was talking about something like the sky is your mind… and I totally related to what she was saying on some other level of consciousness. That will be a nice relaxing treat I feel!

Minnie Mae got freaking fleas two days ago. AGHIAHGIAHGIAGHIA!!! Have you ever heard that James Taylor song about the flea? Well, that is EXACTLY how we are feeling right now. Today I went on a “kill the fleas” mission and bathed her, sprayed her (while ‘fluffing’ her hair as the bottle reads), thoroughly vaccuumed the entire house and every surface she has ever slept on, and sprayed the entire place with Flea killer stuff (which also guarantees that it kills spiders and roaches: Can we say DING!). Then, I sprayed all the laundry, removed all sheets and blankets, washed them out…bler bler bler….what a freaking pain, but sooooo worth it. Those little guys better be GONE within 2 hours because we are both sick to death of itching! GROSS!

The apartment hunt continues–if you know of a place near St. Helena, CA that needs occupation, drop me a line, yo!
