Here I sit in front of my computer feeling the need to blog. I don’t really have anything to blog about but I feel like it’s my duty to do at least one post per week. Let’s just see what comes out of the tips of my fingers. Maybe if I sit here long enough something will come to mind.

Rick had jury duty this week. He took the above photo in the rotunda of the courthouse in Paterson. I love it for so many reasons. He spent three days sitting around for a civil malpractice case. Nearly all of that time was taken up with choosing the jurors. The two lawyers kept dismissing everyone they seated. He got lucky because one of the lawyers dismissed him as a juror too and there were only two potential jurors left after him. I have to wonder if they decided on one of them or if they had to call in more people. It’s an interesting look at our justice system but it can be boring just sitting there waiting to be called.

If you don’t already know, the Super Bowl is coming to town. Seahawk and Bronco frenzy has overtaken the whole city of New York. In fact, it’s kind of funny that even though the game is being played in the Meadowlands in New Jersey, New York has seemed to claim dibs on the whole thing. Poor New Jersey is hardly even mentioned. I’ll be glad when it’s over and I don’t have to listen to the hype anymore. As you already know, I am not a fan of the game. Just a bunch of grown men throwing themselves on top of a ball and running with it if they are lucky.

Speaking of duties, I am dutifully and diligently knitting away on my sister’s cowl. It’s such a fun pattern and very satisfying to see it coming together. Something I made from my own two hands!

Lately my photography has taken a back seat. I could say I have nothing to photograph but that wouldn’t be true. I’m sure if I trudged through the snow in the woods that I would find something of interest. It’s been so cold (in the single digits and teens) that it doesn’t really appeal to me. I could, I suppose, photograph something around the house and make it interesting but that seems like too much effort and not my style at all. So, my camera sits there waiting for inspiration to strike.

Now that I have bored you all with my minutia I’ll close for now. I am hoping to jump start my blogging —and my photography.


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
