Fall Essentials


The weather in the mid-Atlantic has become extremely chilly and the leaves have started to turn. There is such a surreal quality about Northern Virginia in the fall with so much to enjoy. Being able to turn the oven on to bake sweet potato pies, searching for perfectly shaped pumpkins, getting inspiration from art for decorating, and throwing a classic beef stew together for a delicious evening meal.

Over the weekend the family did a lot of work getting Heath ready for winter; raking leaves, putting tools & equipment away, washing blankets and throws to be placed around the house for cozy evenings.

While working on Saturday afternoon listening to Kjazz [88.1 FM] the Billy Holiday tune “Autumn in New York blared through the house. This song definitely  set to tone for comfort, and don’t forget the candied apples.

What better way to welcome the fall season!!!

Stay safe,

Retrospective in Minimalism

It was an experience to be first in line at the Museum of Modern Art [MoMA] Saturday before last to see exhibitions and having the museum to ourselves. Many in line were members who had not been in a gallery for months and couldn’t wait to see art.

The Judd Retrospective explored the remarkable vision of the artist who expressed a commitment to basic forms free of metaphorical or expressive intent …. Minimalism at its finest!!!
