CC=200 in Roman Numerals. Two hundred words about my 200th post. Write and the words will come. They always seems to, which has surprised me to no end. Some humorous, some serious, some to ponder. Observations, experiences all add to the mix that is this growing narrative. Always liked to read words, now I’m… Continue reading CC about CC
Received my weekly, inspiring email from my yoga teacher. Be grateful it says. Opened up a family magazine while I waited for my daughter’s dance class to end. Be grateful, says an article all about Thanksgiving. As I drive to the post office today, a man crosses the road in a wheel chair right in… Continue reading I Am.
It’s this time of the year. I’m starting to feel very scattered. And strangely energized. Cool, brisk weather totally works for me. I’ve got energy…my walks have been fabulous and charged. Planting fall bulbs in the garden and wanting to soak up the golden, late autumn sun. I’m in DIY mode around the house. Our… Continue reading Scattered Like Autumn Leaves
It’s getting cooler out there…and I’m loving it! Big sweater weather, cozy blankets, lots-of -snuggles weather. Oh yeah, and soup weather and warm-the-cockles-of-your-soul weather. During last year’s cool-ish season, a good friend of mine and I attempted to make a Hot Buttered Rum. Honestly, could just the name of that be any better? It’s a drink… Continue reading Shiver Me Timbers
This weekend we had the quintessential autumn-in-New-England day. It was perfect, stem-to-stern. We cleared calendars, proclaimed it a family day in our household and set out to enjoy Mama Nature dressed in her best. We headed to a small town in the Northern area of our state. It’s so cute and quaint that it just… Continue reading It’s Elemental, so to speak

Cooking is not alchemy; there is no magic in the pot.”-‘Dishes & Beverages Of The Old South’, Martha McCulloch-Williams (1913) Wrong. Sorry, Martha. My heart goes out to anyone sitting at your table for a meal. Poor souls. There… Continue reading With a Wave of my Spatula
“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.” Rachel Carson I took that quote right of my CSA farms’ website. It’s a good one, isn’t it? Mid-October is here, the first frost has happened, candy corn (blech) are residing in the house and… Our… Continue reading Veggie Wrap (Up)
I’ll be anti-Soup Nazi. The weather took a turn yesterday and now, all of a sudden, we’ve had a frost (goodbye fresh basil) and I’m wearing socks around the house because my tooties are chilly. Yesterday, I even went so far as to wear my beloved cinnamon-colored suede boots (they have little ties at the… Continue reading Soup fo You!
“Eh”. Take away the ART and you get EH. I’ve seen this saying as a bumper sticker, as a poster on Pinterest and in numerous other places. Well, ain’t that just the truth? If there was no Art, Earth would not be half as interesting. When I was a wee pup, I distinctly remember going… Continue reading Earth Without Art is…
The saying goes to “let your hair down”, but, in my case this weekend, it was up. Way up. I was the Bride of Frankenstein on Saturday night for a Halloween bash. 80 people…kids and adults. Lots of food (served in faux coffins), spider webs, firepits, candy and….costumes. EVERYONE was in great costumes. There was… Continue reading Let Your Hair Up
