  • 04/23/15--19:19: Handsful
  • I said it right there at the kitchen counter. I just said it. “Really Dennis! Who thought having four children was a good idea?” Oh! Ma! God! Did I really say that?! Just like the very young ultrasound technician who gave me the most horrified look and judgmental stares when I cried because I found […]

  • 07/09/15--10:24: Kondo-ing
  • Have you read it? Do you know about The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up? I’ve read it and now I am putting into practice the wisdom of the magnificent Marie Kondo. But, I did not always feel this way about Ms. Kondo. She wasn’t jiving with me. I didn’t feel her. The videos I watched […]

  • 09/06/15--08:58: Summer Carnage
  • The garden is weedy and leggy and the lettuce has bolted. Battered sneakers lay on the front steps, weathered from river walks.  Bathing suits are faded and thread bare from chlorine and salt water. My hair is dry – the texture of summer hay – designed by being out-of-doors more hours than in. Phone messages […]

  • 02/19/16--18:13: I’m Baaaacccckkkk!
  • Can I come back? I miss it here. Will you come back? Can we get back together 😉 I felt like I was too busy, too distracted and depleted. I lost momentum and focus and thought maybe blogging was a narcissistic exercise or futile endeavor. But I’ve decided that it’s neither. As Anais Nin said, […]

  • 03/11/16--12:37: Unraveled
  • I know it. I just can’t admit it. I keep getting to the end of row 5 and I fumble to finish just right. I haven’t taken the time to locate the exact spot to place my last stitch. I settle for a couple of different solutions to ending this row repeatedly and they all […]

  • 01/01/17--08:07: New Year
  • What’s so good about the New Year?! Only EVERYTHING. It’s like ‘Hope’ in a bottle. ‘Hope In A Bottle’ is not what caused my party-goers to fall down the front stairs, doze off on the couch or take a little rest on my front lawn. It was beautiful revelry – with a side of Karaoke. […]

  • 01/06/17--16:36: The Voice In My Head
  • To The Voice in My Head, Please excuse me while I attempt to discern whether you are friend or foe. I need to know if you are intuition revealing to me the secrets to my success or a distant cousin of OCD promising me ridiculous, infomercial-type control of my environment. Are you here to inspire, […]

  • 06/03/17--13:49: Blog Envy & Love
  • I am a people watcher in every sense of that term. Whatever your lifestyle – I’m interested. I especially like to watch people that live nothing like me. I love to peak into someone else’s corner of the universe. I am always inspired and entertained by other people. So if you’ve painted every piece of furniture […]

  • 06/08/17--06:18: Queen of the World
  • I was once Queen of the World. You don’t think so?! Check out the entries on this very blog from September, 2010 or July 2012 or June 2014. Farms and experiments, day trips and tiny, adorable children dot those pages. Easy, breezy fun happened at ever turn and all things were new and exciting. I had […]

  • 06/15/17--17:30: Bits of Bliss
  • I don’t get a lot of downtime and I am rarely alone. Quite frankly, I don’t often sit down and silence is a strange and very unusual sound for me. I do not have significant blocks of time to myself. I am though, cultivating my ability to savor tiny, miniature moments that I can carve […]

  • 07/07/17--14:06: Crocheting is Hard
  • I love crocheting. I think about patterns and yarns when I am washing the dishes and stitches and multiples when I am folding laundry. I have dreamt about crocheting. I don’t know exactly how this started. One moment before my obsession with yarn and a second before I learned how to single crochet, I would […]

  • 08/04/17--07:38: Off The Rails
  • There is a roller coaster at the pier at Seaside Heights in which you hop into a little car and a chain pulls you to the top of the metal structure with clicking and clacking noises. It perches you at the top and releases your car to swivel, swerve, turn and dip by the shear […]

  • 08/18/17--10:19: What I Know For Sure
  • Oprah always asks her Super Soul Sunday guests what they know for sure. I have not decided yet whether I will plan ahead or just go with the moment when she asks me. Right this minute, I know these things for sure. I know that learning to make the perfect iced coffee (or the drink […]

  • 08/29/17--06:10: This Is Not The End
  • There are more days of summer in September than there are in June, but people will easily accept June as ‘summer’ and September 1 as the heralding of fall. Not so my friends and I forbid you to imbibe in anything “Pumpkin Spice” or to hang a wreath swathed in fake fall foliage on your […]

  • 09/12/17--06:13: Happy, Shiny Day
  • There is always a summer day that stands out to me – The Happy, Shiny Day. There is a quality to the day that makes it quintessentially summer, special and a little sacred. This very blog chronicles some of those days. I am not always sure it is happening, when it  is happening, but when […]
