The weekend was spent canoeing. While it is not my favorite all time activity (mainly because whenever we go my husband sneaks in a fishing pole) this Saturday it was perfect. The crispness of the air, leaves starting to turn, heron, mallards, and geese all made for a relaxing trip. We were on the Croton River not far from where I grew up. I had the best job in high school and college, working at a docent at Van Cortlandt Manor-which I always visit when I am in the neighborhood.Then a stop at my favorite grocery store-Stew Leonards. I probably am one of the few people who get excited to visit a food store-but let me tell you I just love this place. Of course I had the opportunity to pick up some magazines, an obsession of mine.
I love regional magazines-especially ones that are give aways, which the Cottage and Garden ones are. Anyone who has a favorite let me know.
