We were hellbent on frolicking in waves while we can … even Louie enjoyed the beach in Sagaponack and smelled like sea air for a weekend.  Zoe loved having mosquito netting .. er, ‘princess canopy’ .. on her bed.  I don’t think we could find a better spot of ‘moving water’ for Tashlich!  (Don’t know what tashlich is? Click here).  The waves were huge like the day we got married in this same spot and – I’m not lying – the sky really was that pink during sunset hour:

Welcome our new sweet, rescued friend Louie. He is about 4 years old and mostly schnauzer (maybe a schnoodle as he may be mixed with poodle?) Not only is he NOT a chewer and house trained, but also sweet and a super snuggle bug. He will sit in your lap and keep you warm all day. And he’s hypoallergenic! No shedding! This mamma loves this!

It was high time we caved to Ezra’s constant begging for a dog and all the responsibility that comes with it (which he is doing so very well at upholding).  Now we just have to figure out what to do with Zoe’s overwhelming desire to have a hamster or a cat ; (

Happy New Year!

We got back from sunny Florida and headed to Connecticut for a great NYE party.  By the next morning there was enough blanket of snow to go out for a New Year’s Day fat burning snow hike.  We had our new friend Jem the rescue dog in tow for a walk (owned by our friend Tom) and explored the snowy fields and frozen lake, and a tree full of frozen-in-time icicles!  Back to the grind..

Cornwall CT is only 2 hours away, but tends to amass about 7 additional inches of snow for every couple of inches we have in the city. And since it’s a fairly untouched place, we get to return to it blanketed with snow even if nothing has fallen for a few days. The kids loved this – we even squeezed in a science experiment for Ezra to take back to school. Did you know if you throw boiling water into the air at 10 degrees fahrenheit – the water will turn to snow in the air? I didn’t!

We also met a very adorable bear dog at the ski slopes and now my kids want a Newfoundland – yeah, in a city apartment. That could be an entire blog unto itself.

This past Saturday was a day of fasting, for those of us observing Yom Kippur. We broke the fast at my friend Kate’s house… who is not only a phenomenal cook but has the cutest home ever. I am starting to think I want to move to her nearby neighborhood and convert my garage to a party spot, as she has. And since she and her husband spent some time in Russia they have a very cool, folksy red and blue thing going on in their home that is reminiscent of my godmother’s Hungarian pillows (which I love). It’s a Good Yontif when you have this to look forward to at the end of it all!

From last Thursday on we hung out in the warmer temps. By flying later in the week we didn’t have the ‘airfare akin to flying to Europe’ and the throngs of grandchildren were starting to calm down. We made a long weekend of it and were able to see cousins Jake and Tali. Zoe discovered she loves flowers and polka dot skirts (even while practicing her scooting for yet another photoshoot), and Ezra met some friends who added music to our poolside fun. The beaches were great – even when they were closed due to sharks near the shore. Add grandparents to the mix (and daily sessions of walking their dog Kasha) and the weekend was a hit.



Yikes! Molesting Alligators?
