Today no one was here for dinner except Jeremy, me and Vincie. Vince poured a whole bowl of cold soup on his head. I bought a bag...

It rained today and I wanted to do so many outdoor things, but it just wasn't possible. We went to the house and measured for the sun room, went to the bookstore where Vince spilled a bottle of powdered pink lemonade. Then we went to Rhinebeck and ate at Fosters, looked for a dress.

I'm writing this from the Red Hook library, my first public computer entry. Today Vince and I went to Goodwill and bought two coats. Then we went to Hannoford and had a blast driving their car shopping cart and sharing a chicken salad wrap. Then we went to the Children's Museum where there were a ton of kids in the park running around and Vince joined in. Very cute. Last night Vince talked to Dad on the phone. They had a real conversation.

Just went to Shawn Pratt's office to sign our house papers... We are about 6 weeks away from owning the house. Last night I made the most delicious falafel dinner. I'm impressing myself with my cooking.

Vince enjoying a marshmallow bunny.
Asuka and Carrie came over and made Easter dinner for us, including an impressive Easter bunny cake.

We went walking with Andy, Magurite, Bob, Katherine and the dogs on a mountain near Ellenville. Take a look at Vince playing in a stream getting all muddy.

My cooking is getting better and better. I'm responsible for Tuesday and Thursday cooking. Tonight, I made stir fry pork with rosemary, red onions and olive oil. A salad with garbanzo beans, peas, red onions, feta, alfalfa sprouts, cucumber and avacado with a yogurt, cucumber and dill sauce. And then couscous and pita to round out the dinner!

I picked up Elena at the Rhinebeck car repair shop early this morning. It was so nice to be up and out by 7:30, I was in such a good mood, I didn't pay attention to where I was going, so I got lost on the way to Rhinebeck. Then I opened an account for Vince... We spent a good deal of time outside, I spoke with Jessica today. I thought she had lost her job, but it turns out she got another job in the same place.

Today I went to see Carrie's new Accord. Fancy, it has a navagation system that tells you how to get to different places and it has leather seats and everything. We went on errands and Vince especially loved the liquor store where they had a little cart you could drive around in...

Beautiful today! We spent the afternoon hiking near Tannersville. The dogs enjoyed it too. There were old stone piles which were there as foundations of old houses. Had pizza from Village Pizza in Red Hook for dinner.

It was forcasted to rain today and it seemed that way during the morning walk with the dogs. Jeremy and I are suffering through various brutal nights with Vince these days, so we were tired when we woke up this morning. Our plan for the day was to see the Children's Museum and go to the Vanderbilt Mansion and walk with the doggies. It turned out to be a beautiful day, and we had a wonderful time. In the evening, we made a delicious cold avacado soup with cilantro topping. Yummy, but very rich.

Went to the Danbury Mall with Carrie. I went into the Limited and Express!

I just learned that Kim Hamad, Senior House fellow is a prof at the Mechanical Engineering Dept at MIT! Woo hoo! Today I got my snow tires taken off by Vin. I'm hoping it won't snow anymore. Then we went to Shawn Pratt's office to start the house buying lawyer bit. Then I came home and watched a funeral from my bedroom window.

Jeremy is still home today. He, Vince and Bob are all sick. We watched Serving Sara today with Matthew Perry and Liz Hurley. It was really, really bad.

Also the mouse problem in the house is getting much worse. Bob wants to rent some cats.
Bob, Jeremy, Vince and I and Trudi and Ruby went to Mohonk Preserve to go hiking. It was a beautiful day, clear and brisk. We walked and shared a lunch of bagel sandwiches. The tree limbs were still covered in a layer of ice and when the wind blew, they rattled against each other and made the most wonderful noise. Then we saw a wonderful German movie, Mostly Martha. I try and save all the food movies to watch with Jeremy.

Went to the Danbury Mall where we rode the double high caroulsel!

We went to the Children's Museum today for two hours. By the end, Vince was a non-coherent walking, spitting machine. He was so happy that he was grabbing all the possible toys and dropping them as he ran around the place. Also signed Vince up for 2 days a week at Cinnamon Tree Day Care.

Ack! We just found a baby mouse in bed with Vincent. I know Katherine loves the mice around here, but geez! (This mouse was super-cute, small and clean and indoors!)
Today I'm starting this blogger thing. We will see how it goes. We went to the Northern Dutchess Hospital play group and I met more people this time. I'm starting to remember everybody's name and what they do. Vince and I saw Eileen today and had a great time at on the 3rd floor of Ludlow. Went to the vet for Ruby for her annual check-up.
