Hello world!!!! Greetings from Rochester, NY!
Sorry for the extended absence, but the quarter system hit me like a ton of bricks and I’m just coming up for air. Unfortunately, to get things going in our new home and my new job, I was forced to neglect my blogging duties. But fear not, you have not missed much either as my cooking has been almost non-existent. But that too will change.
As most of you know I defended and PASSED my dissertation on August 18th. So what was a girl to do to celebrate? Baseball of course! So on the 19th we drove (well Alan drove, but that’s really not the point is it?) to Rogers Centre in Toronto (yes, Canada) to see the Blue Jays play, who else? the RED SOX of course!
See Kikita? We too like to do SelfPortraits and it does not have to be on a Tuesday! Well, really, we sort of have to do self portraits….otherwise we’d have a whole bunch of pictures of me alone (oh wait we have those!) and another bunch of Alan by himelsf…somehow we don’t have as many of those! 😉
Needless to say the RedSox won that game, much to the dismay of the Toronto fans, even if they still ran out of steam at the end of the season to lose to the Angels.
We haven’t had much time to explore Rochester and the Finger Lakes, but we did venture out to see Lake Ontario and caught a really bad sun migraine the next day. However, we did get some nice pics of the lake.
No, no, no. We weren’t on the sailboat but it’s still a great picture is it not? I mean really, if I don’t tell you it is a lake, would you think it is a lake? The interesting thing is that Lake Ontario was once a bay, believe it or not, so it is a salt water lake. Sort of a captive ocean if you will. Where were we you ask? Well, Alan is intent of creating a portoflio of his wife, so I guess you could say I was in a photo session.
I still can’t get over what great pictures the new camera takes….or maybe it is the photographer!
I have much to post, in particular since our anniversary was on July 26th, it has been three years of Papi’s passing, I just turned 39 and we are planning a little family expansion.
I hope you are all still out there, and thank you for sticking around!
