Wow! It's hard to believe that spring is finally here.  We have been teased with temperatures in the upper seventies, followed by days in the thirties and nights in the teens.  I know, I should be used to it after all these years.

I have been busy doing lots of reading over the last couple of months.  I go through periods where I read very little, to times when I have all I can do to put a book down and do what I need to be doing.  I figure I have re-read somewhere around 80 books and read about five new ones (I have a couple of new ones I am waiting to start so I can read them without interruption, as well as a few I am waiting to be released.)\

Last Sunday, my husband and I enjoyed a trip to Syracuse to watch Tran-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) perform Beethoven's Last Night.  It was performed at the Landmark Theatre, a 1920's movie theater.  What a beautiful setting for a wonderful performance.  We had a great time. 

Before we watched the show, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at Clark's Ale House.  I had the beef and barley soup, while my husband had a roast beef sandwich-- it was delicious.  The perfect spot for a quick bite to eat before the show.

Easter is just around the corner and will be followed by camping trips once school is out.  We are looking forward to all of our scheduled trips with our friends.
