Every so often, I tell Rick, “I have an idea.” According to my husband, these simple words give him cold chills. You see, Rick is a man who loves his daily routine. He enjoys knowing what to expect and changes are not, shall we say, welcomed with open arms. Am I about to tell him that I want to host an event in our home, go visit my mother, or move the furniture around? He doesn’t know what’s coming, but he is always confident that his routine is about to be rocked in one way or another. Read more

What in the world is more fun than a Christmas parade? Well, dear readers, I’m here to tell you that the answer is TWO Christmas parades, on the very same Saturday!

For some months now we’ve been told to Christmas-shop even earlier than usual, as all those container ships are wandering about the near Pacific waiting to magically unload our gifts into those driverless big rigs parked in some unknown distant lot, for without those gifts Big Business says our holidays will be bleak and joyless. Children hear and weep, grownups grow restless and look at each other in uneasy guilt. A tradition is broken, a crucial rite unobserved. A great sense of self-reproach lies deep in the heart of the land. We must buy Stuff for Christmas. Read more

 Due to Covid, my mother, sisters and I hadn’t seen each other in over two years. That is a looooooong time! So recently we all converged at Mom’s house for several days. We had a lot of time to make up! Fun question: How do you celebrate four holidays in less than a week? Well dear readers, I’m here to tell you all about it. Buckle your seatbelts for a wild and fun ride! Read more

After the instant relief delivered by last week’s cold front and the first day of fall actually feeling like fall, I’d almost forgotten that Earth has just experienced another sweltering, record-smashing summer and how long it had been since any northern air had made it this far south – very early August.
