well, time is coasting by here in new york.  saturday was the funeral.  it was so cold and windy at the gravesite, which made the situation even more dramatic.  (thanks to everyone who sent well wishes here, on facebook and through email.  it did help knowing there were warm thoughts coming my way.)

before my grandmother died, and when i was still just coming out to see her one last time, my sister had planned a small gathering for while i was here.  a wine tasting with her friends and work pals.  that was last night.  it was pretty fun, but with my cold, i shouldn’t have had any wine!

my sister’s boss brought gifts.  here’s pennycat playing in the gift wrap:


she even brought quackers for cody bear and pickles!  thanks n., they’ll love them!quackers1

here is one of the yummier wines of the night.  eye of the bee.  an organic wine with a little honey berry flavor.


and here are some pictures i took from my sister’s front yard:



we were going to go for a hike today, but it is 42 and rainy.  the weather was beautiful yesterday.  what happened???

I think I need some of that Hour Chimney’s wine…

Cold and snowy here. Was thinking about you and your family this week. I hear funerals are difficult and sad. Hope you are being good to yourself.

Tell Pennycat and your sister hi. Does your sister have a big green John Deere tractor? I would love to see a picture of it if she does!

Lovely photos. Beautiful cat. Hope your cold is gone soon.

Yep, that looks just like New York. Oh, and the beautiful one day, 42 and rainy the next? That’s New York too.

Hi Goodbear. I am sorry to hear the circumstances you had to return home for. I hope that you and your family are doing OK.

Tell your sister that I covet Pennycat. She has gorgeous blue eyes!
