I have been so busy lately and tomorrow I fly to Andover, Mass. to visit Beth and my grandsons. I wanted to get the house "in order" and here it is almost 5:00 and I have accomplished nothing. My vacuum cleaner is still at the repairman and he called to say it still isn't finished. So much for cleaning the floors. Ken will stay home to care for the animals, but I worry that they will miss "Mom" as I know they will. Especially poodle Beau.

I have been meaning to mention this for awhile and so I am naming it as my "Monday Favorite." Some of you may have been avid readers of "Victoria Magazine", as I was for years. I saved all the issues until it just got to be too much and I finally discarded them. They discontinued publishing a few years ago and now they are back. I am overjoyed. I think all of you will love this magazine Go to to check it out. It is just as beautiful as ever -- wonderful photography, recipes, lifestyle, books, women and their businesses. You will love it. I received my first issue the other day and I am again hooked. The photo is one from the magazine so credit goes to them.

I am also including a picture I took in Paris on my last visit since that is one of my very, very favorite things . I will be checking on you from Andover and will try to post from there.

I just got my first issue of Victoria, also, and I am happy to see that it more closely resembles the original. I saved all of the back issues for such a long time and finally put them in my yard sale a few years ago. They sold very quickly.
