The other day, I was driving my daughters somewhere and an oooold Michael Jackson song came on. I think it dated back to when I was about 10 (hold your tongue). And to this day…I have no idea what the words are. The three of us strained to understand the words and came away with… Continue reading Words Optional
Sunday is my day to shop for groceries, a job that I absolutely hate to do (not to start this week’s posts with a complaint, but really). It’s right up there with laundry. With the food (and growing children in the house)…you eat, you buy, you eat, you buy, you spend a fortune. A vicious… Continue reading Eco-Good, Says June

Last night, I walked into a party of one hundred people and going in, I knew exactly one of them. Driving over, I almost turned around. I had been looking forward to going to this event, but in the hussle-and-bustle of the week, it only dawned on me in the late afternoon that I was… Continue reading Just Add Jacket
Post will be up soon….trying to motivate! 🙂
Three things were in my head today (nooo, not just three things. Others, too. Fine.)….this is going to be one of those posts that is just all over the place. That kind of mood today. 1. The Cicada invasion, coming soon to an East Coast near you. Or more pointedly, me. I heard about it… Continue reading Pestilence, Pollen and Pound Cakes

Service, Rhymes of a Rolling Stone “Nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” -Vladimir Nabokov, Mary This morning, I woke up thinking about travel.
