The Month that was just too much I hope that this isn’t any kind of portent for my trip to London next week. The week prior one friend was dealing with the loss of her home and belongings by fire. I went home and … Read More

Belated Condolences What a week… I haven’t had the energy to post or the ability to form a coherent sentence. Sunday was a restful day for me. I did laundry and I pulled out the can of paint that I had for my guest … Read More

Today would have been Granny’s 93 birthday. Last year my Dad and I went to see her a couple of days before her birthday since it was on a weekday, as this year. That’s the last time I really had a conversation with her. … Read More

Nice weekend at home. I finished painting the trim on the front of the house and painted half of the porch floor. Also reglazed all of the windows I could reach (the ones behind fixed storm windows (if they even need it) will have … Read More
