What day is it?

| November 28, 2016

When you work at home, and you don’t have any other responsibilities for a few days, you start to lose track. I’ve enjoyed that. I’ve been baking and embroidering and binge-watching Paranoid on Netflix. And also writing. Lots of times, I put off doing the things I want to do for the things I should […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Tuesday

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 […]

I like remembering to be grateful. Not just on Thanksgiving. Every day, there’s something. A moment when happiness and contentment are here to be appreciated. But tomorrow’s the big day–so brace yourself. I’m thankful for my husband, who’s a better cook than I am–and a loving, always-to-be-counted-on father to our children. And my friend. I’m […]
