6 Spots in the Pocono Mountains where stunning fall colors meet spooky Halloween fun.
Today is certainly a Monday and a Tuesday all in one because of the 3-day weekend. I did my usual Monday list of "to do's" as well as those required for Tuesday, such as getting out the recyclables and large trash items for Wednesday.
I made progress in my office with clearing out my file cabinet and putting together two garbage bags worth of trash.
I also managed to wash two loads of laundry at the laundromat (remember, my washer is broken). Boy, will I welcome having an "in-house" washer and dryer again once we move into our new house in a few months.
So basically, clearing out stuff and sorting through what the "keepers" are and what gets hauled will pretty much define my life for the next few months. My goal is to take as little as humanly possible into the new house and start fresh.
Me and my girls are really looking forward to embracing a whole new life. We'll always have the memories made in this, our first home together, but with all the turmoil, drama and lifestyle changes of my not-too-civil separation and divorce over the past four years, it will be a blessing to start a new chapter, with no ties to the past, and create a whole new life!
In travel news.
Well, Tanya will be departing for Athen, Greece tomorrow, so you an bet I will be piggybacking on her travels with articles chock full of information about the places to which she will be visiting!!
However, lest we forget that Halloween is quickly approaching (16 days away!) and that leaves two weekends left to enjoy the many festivals, fairs and spooky events coming up.
Here in the New York area, where we are a few hours driving distance to the lovely Poconos, there are some fun happenings to consider attending! Take a gander at this recent article in Your AAA Magazine, which features 6 Spots in the Pocono Mountains where stunning fall colors meet spooky Halloween fun.
