Big Stuff

| January 30, 2014

Lots of doings around here. The beloved and I did not find ourselves stranded on the highways around here in the snowstorm on Tuesday. However, my daughter managed her 20-minute drive in almost 3 hours. She was lucky. Her beloved managed his 25-minute drive in only 17 hours. Oddly, the thing that finally got him […]

Happy New Year!

| January 1, 2014

2014 arrived over night! I’m a little surprised since I keep thinking it was just 2013. Here’s hoping to greet it as joyfully as George! I want to write and exercise and embrace chances to be a peaceful and happy person. I want to enjoy my family and my life and not let moments drift […]

Happy 4th of July!

| July 4, 2013

The first 4th I remember, I was perched on the side of a hill, which is probably just a soft rise on the beach, near the old pier at Tybee Island, the one that used to drift out to sea pretty much every year. My parents, talking softly behind me. My little brother, holding my […]

Merry Christmas!

| December 25, 2012

Wishing you all the best of the holidays, from our home to yours. I hope everyone is as happy and at peace as Kitty when he discovers we’ve put up his tree. He was born to be a rebel–to live in the outdoors–to celebrate! May your family’s celebration be warmed with closeness, spiced with love, […]

Thanksgiving Tuesday

| November 20, 2012

Getting ready. My favorite holiday is coming this week. It’s a soft pleasure in the back of my mind, a nice tingle of anticipation. Today is shop day. Because I may have the best beloved in the world, he’s doing the shopping. The girl and I just added to the list, but he does the […]

Thanksgiving Monday!

| November 19, 2012

Thanksgiving means one thing to me. Family. My brother-in-law, who’s my brother but even more, my friend, arrived this week. I love seeing him and the beloved together. They’re funny, and you can see how much they enjoy besting each other with true brotherly love. Plus, he’s a joy to my girl, and he finds […]

Merry Christmas!

We celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas at my house, so I’m wishing you the best of all the holidays this season brings! I hope your family will enjoy health and joy and peace all through the coming new year. May today bring you sparkly new memories and happiness to last!

Working Holiday

| December 19, 2011

Have the holidays started at your house? Our company arrived early, and somehow I’ve fallen behind in my revising. I’m on the last read-through, but terrible things happen here while I’m focused on work. The house falls apart. All cleaning ends. That’s fine unless you hear someone you love is able to arrive early for […]

Awake Too Early

| November 25, 2011

After two hours of sleep I decided to do my Black Friday shopping. I am not a shopper. I can’t imagine why I’d be willing to stand in line or sleep in a parking lot. Hmmmm. Nope–nothing comes to mind. However, I’m happy to click a few buttons to knock out the major shopping. So, […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

| November 23, 2011

Taking tomorrow off, but I wanted to wish you a happy Thanksgiving, filled most of all with the love of the people you love best! I’ll be back on Friday–unless I’m in a tryptophan stupor!
