Salem, Massachusetts

Hi, just wanted to share with you my trip to Salem the week before Halloween.  We were up visiting Gabby in Boston and decided to detour before we came home. 


This was suppose to be good luck for women to touch this down in the dungeon.



Here are some of the characters that were walking around:


Hope you like this sneak peek of Salem it was a fun day.  Enjoy your week.  Hugz, Z

Home after 12 days of Hurricane Sandy

Hi, I just want to say THANKS! to everyone who sent me prayers and good wishes thru the 12 days of Sandy.  I had no electric, no hot water and no internet.  It got so cold in my house (49) that I finally, had to leave my house and go to my sisters’ who had just got power back this Monday.  I wanted to take the puppies who were freezing (and me too) to stay with my sister until the storm passed.    We wound up getting 6 inches of snow!  So, blessed that I only lost the food in my refrigerator and now have bronchitis.   So, many people have lost their homes and loved ones. 

My poor puppies so cold, even with sweaters on:


And here is how I spent some of my nights:


Scrapping my lantern and candlelight…lol

I thought I would share some of the photos I took around my neighborhood:


This is my backyard and the tree on the left had fallen and just missed the house by about 3 feet:



We had so many telephone poles down is one of many reasons it took so long to get our power back.  Here are some photos my hubby took at the shore:


And finally, after all this devastation the Nor Eastern that gave us  6 inches of snow plus more in some areas:

Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for worrying about me and my family, it really touch my heart!  Now, just please keep sending your prayers to this area that is still suffering so.
