I am slowly but surely making a new life. It's not easy. I have been alone more than I would like to be but am trying to make the best of it. I have made some new friends and have been fortunate to see my old ones. My Mom used to tell me how grateful she was to have me because she would have been very lonely. I understand that now.
On a positive note I have some nice things to look forward too. Happy Weekend.

My world has changed a lot too. I moved and am settling into a new lfe. I am sitting here crying and longing to talk to Mom. I listen to her voicemails on my cell phone. I miss her so very much.

I have become fond of Zella workout wearfrom Nordstrom. The workout wear is very high quality and reasonable priced. I adore their sneakers also. What is your favorite workout wear?

A year ago I was rejoicing in the fact that my Mom was a young 80 . She was healthy and vibrant. A year later I sit in a new home having buried my Mom and am rejoicing in the fact that I made it through the storms. All of you helped to get me through it. I could not have done it without your notes,comments and loyal readership. Thanks.

This is one of the hardest times of year to dress for. We all want to wear lighter clothing but the weather does not allow for it. One of the easiest things to buy are cashmere ponchos and wraps. They are versatile, come in spring colors and can ease the transition when you want to wear lighter colors but the weather does not call for lighter fabrics. These are by Minnie Rose.

I had a hectic weekend. I spent Passover with my brother and his family. We had a nice time and were able to catch up. It's been a hectic year and the anniversary of Mom's death is rapidly approaching. I miss her terribly and still cannot get over the shock of what happened. I am starting to settle down and to get into a routine which is good. I am relieved that I moved so that I can enjoy the summer.
How was your weekend?

I am doing well but am constantly looking back to a year ago-these precious weeks before my Mom died. I cannot get over that she will be gone a year on April 25th. Some days it seems like years and other days it seems like yesterday. We are having an unveiling on May 3rd (the custom in the Jewish Religion is to have a ceremony at the gravesite when someone is gone for a year). The official mourning period will be over although I will never stop mourning her. I have learned so much about myself this past year. It has been a hard year but thanks to many friends I made it. I count all of you who read this blog among those friends.
My weekend was uneventful which was good. We had snow on Friday and yesterday I had dinner with old friends which was nice. Today I spent relaxing and contemplating some fun adventures that I have planned in the next few months including my 35th college reunion.

Sorry for not posting but the last week has been too much. Friends in blog land have had some issues that I wanted to be supportive of and real life has had its issues too.
I am fine and am busy putting the finishing touches on my apartment. I enjoy decorating and decided to finish the interior before it's time to do the patio. I never buy patio planters until the end of May. That way I know that they won't die.

Today was a snow day!! I spent the day going through photos and thinking about the events of the past year. I cannot wait until spring.
I have been blogging for the better part of 7 years. Several years ago I met a woman from another state at a blogger event who tragically lost her husband this past Sunday. I was able to watch the live stream of the funeral today and was glad to be able too. It's funny how the blogger community has brought so many people together.

Today I donned my warmest hat and gloves and my down coat and went to New York. Lunch at Laduree and some shopping and window shopping was fun. I met an old friend for lunch and headed downtown to check out Utility Canvas and uptown to French Sole New York.
I took the train which is not my norm but it was fine. I do prefer driving. I am not in love with 34th Street (I am becoming my Mother).

One of the things that has been weighing heavily since Mom died was getting my affairs in order. No one likes to think about their mortality but it is a necessity. Yesterday I signed my will, living will and powers of attorney.
