Life: Friday Ramblings



Friday Ramblings

We're still upstate enjoying...
...the mountains and some leisurely family time.  We all chipped in to rent two timeshares so that the entire extended family could enjoy in the fun while getting away from the crowds, congestion, and traffic.

I've been going upstate for Columbus Day since...
...I was born!  Every Columbus Day, we would spend a long weekend in upstate New York to visit our great great Aunt Carmella.  She passed away a few years back at the age of 102, but we still continue to go every year.  Because of Corona Virus, we decided to extend that long weekend to an entire week.  I love that this is something my mother did since we was a little girl, something that we continued all throughout my life, and now something that MY kids look forward to.  Aunt Carmella would be so proud!

I apologize for the short Friday Ramblings but...
...I hope that you're having a FABULOUS weekend and are participating in some Autumn fun.

What are your Friday Ramblings?

    1. She did.. and she was fit and of sound mind for all of it. If only we can all be as lucky as her. She used to call the secret to her health “the cocktail”. She would drink a straight shot of vinegar every day!

    2. Apple vinegar I pressume. That one is good if you don't have ulcer or something. In Russia some people also like to drink a bit of hydrogen every day, the one you use for rinsing mouth and teeth, it apparently cures everything and if you put a spoonful of it in the water it apparently cleanses it. I know for sure it solves fungus and Athlete's foot.

    1. Her real name was Frances, but no one actually called her that. Probably bc Carmella was more fitting for her. :). Thank you!
