Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf
(who would have thought they were an item?)
It's been a super busy week around these parts. This week my oldest granddaughter started pre-school and no one expected that a few tears were to be shed by (17 month old) sister who watched her sister take some giant steps. Bittersweet, but big sister loves preschool and had no adjustment issues which was so nice.
We spent some time at the zoo this week but it was somewhat disappointing compared to a few years ago -- granted, it's not a huge zoo, but it's clean and fun for little ones. Wednesday I picked up my new car. It's been 8 years since I got my last new car so I was about due. I love all of the technology that I guess is just about standard in many cars these day. My favorite features are the Bluetooth technology that reads my text messages to me and with voice control I allows me to auto call the sender without taking my eyes off the road. The moon roof and (7) airbags are pluses as well. Rides smooth, handles well and I feel safe.
We also managed to work out and meet my son, DIL and youngest granddaughter for lunch. She's quite the crack up.
We also took a road trip to the Berkshires which included a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. It was picture perfect weather . The grounds are fabulous and the museum was great as well. Of course the historic Red Lion Inn was a must visit stopover. Terrific place to relax and dine.

With a full day of football in store for my husband, Patriots Game at 1:00 and Eagles game this evening, I am happy to report I'll have the day free to do as I please -- no complaints here. What's your plans for today?
