I pulled out my poncho today, along with my jeans and a cute pair of flats. For the first time in months, my toes are enclosed. Feels odd, but also good (can put off fixing that waning pedicure a few more days). Cool mornings. Dark mornings. Too nippy to sit on the front porch and… Continue reading Of Ponchos and Sugar
I’m laughing as I type this….I had today’s post all mapped out yesterday. It was going to be on “sleep” and the benefits of it and, more pointedly, my quest for more of it. Well, I was working on an article last night, ended up going to bed, er….too late…and didn’t get to my post.… Continue reading Switch Gears

No, the calendar has not officially deemed it so, nor have the leaves even started to turn color yet…how is it that I have developed such keen meteorological powers? In the past week, I have reached for two pumpkin-flavored products. Fall is here. Bring… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season
It’s early as I write this. The sky is still dark, although a tiny casting of light is starting to illuminate the sky. The trees look dark and ghostly. The clouds from the overnight are moving out…steely gray and somewhat billowy. It’s quiet outside. A sporadic car, a bird’s chirp. A squirrel making the odd… Continue reading Season 3
Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment.-Ellis Peters Got that right, Mr. Peters. First we were astonished that there was no real winter (at least around this part of the country) and now we are astonished that it’s officially Spring. We have waited patiently and now we can finally hear those fabulous… Continue reading Pack Away Those Boots!
