The party was a smashing success.  And when I have cleared the aftermath, I will post more on this later. But for now, happy hats! My best friend came down, and there were mojitos, shopping, waaaaaayyyy too much bad-for-us-food, and  have I mentioned that my nails are frosty pink?  Specifically they are “Desert Nomad” pink, whatever-the-hell-that-is. […]

… why hair stylists hate hair?  At least long hair. And why they seem inherently unable to tell the difference between three inches and six? My waist-length hair? Is now down to the bottom of my shoulders. Again. Okay, here’s a newsflash for the hair stylists out there: Some of us? Like. Our. Hair. Long. […]

My son turns three this weekend. THREE! When I look at his face, there is almost no baby left. If I look close at the roundedness of his cheeks and squint juuuuuussst the right way, I can see the infant that I could cuddle at will. But one glance at his thin angular muscled little-boy […]

Although I have been attending my local United Methodist Church regularly (a late development), and I do enjoy it a lot, I would describe myself as more spiritual than religious. My relationship with my Supreme Being is very direct […]

Knock on wood, because a lot can happen between now and December, but our current plan is to spend the Christmas holidays in my hometown.

Ten years ago tonight, under a summer moon at a very wild party, I fell in love for the last time. And I have a story to tell. It is story that took ten years to write and it isn’t even done. It is a story of new beginnings, and reinventions. There is death, and […]

Yes, I have been experimenting with themes. I am also trying to figure out how the heck to get my Theme Switcher to set back to default. Sigh. WordPress. Love it, but sometimes I want to slam the keyboard around a bit.

We took my son to the town playground Sunday evening. Our town park isn’t fancy, but it has an embarrassment of riches in the eyes of a three-year-old. It has THREE sets of playground equipment, well worn, but well maintained, separated by a creek bed (which from my childhood is a necessary element of imaginary […]

My son picked up the most incredibly ORANGE worsted cotton off the shelf the other day and demanded I make him a hat: It was a challenge to match the wattage of that hat, but if there was ever a better depiction of “sunny smile”, I am not sure I have seen it.
