I have two words for you: Old School. And that’s what I’m going to be doing more of in this New Year. As I observed 2015, there were many good things to behold but there were also things that made me say “What the heck?” rather loudly and frequently. The food we eat, the state… Continue reading Two Words!
Beginning the year with some vintage greetings….setting a tone for the New Year…
Steamy weather be damned, I say. When I see anything “pumpkin” in the stores, I know it’s time for the Best Time. Autumn. This was today’s crafty creation. I’m sort of addicted to chalkboards these days.
For the first time in 10 years, my car has not driven down an adorably named little lane in our woody neighborhood towards the welcoming elementary school. In our household, the elementary school days have officially come to a close. This morning, we headed to the sprawling high school and to the bustling middle school. A… Continue reading Turn the page and see…wings
“Do one thing each day that scares you”, said the indomitable Eleanor Roosevelt. This has been my quote-of-the-week this week, for recently, a (great) opportunity presented itself and it does, indeed, scare me. Being a quotes-gal, this one immediately jumped to mind and then I got thinking about it….this is my time to really live… Continue reading When a Kiwi is not just a Kiwi
As we are wildly aware, the Northeast has been pummeled with snow this season. Actually, not even “this season”, but merely the last month. Mountains of snow and ice, the national guard crawling all over New England helping clear streets, roofs piled high with heavy flakes. What a mess. And the unnamed ingredient to this… Continue reading With A Flash and a Clap
In my last post, I wrote about life not being one long timeline of wondrous-after-wondrous happenings. Case in point, I did not, despite the desire, hop a plane to Tahiti this weekend. There was no gauzy sarong around my hips, there was no gazing out over aquamarine waters. Instead, my husband and I went looking… Continue reading Little Bit here, Little Bit there
It is officially the new year and I’ve decided to come back to this blog-o-mine. I’ve been away from it for a bit because *paying* writing jobs have kept me busy (a good problem to have, I know), but when some of you mentioned that I haven’t written in a while, well, I just had… Continue reading Happy Newness
Today. Halloween! One of my favorite days of the year…magic is in the air, along with the chocolatey, peanutty scent of Reese’s. Hee hee. As I snuggled on the couch last night with my two girls and we watched “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, I realized why I enjoy watching it so much year after… Continue reading Looking for a Sincere Pumpkin Patch
As you may or may not know, we recently finished a home renovation that took the better part of eleven months. Yes, eleven. Eight huge dumpsters instead of the estimated two. Over-time. Over-budget. You know the drill. This was nothing new-it was just new to us. Amazingly enough, hubby and I did not kill each… Continue reading House Says What?
