Ha! Mary. I am a recently recovered languisher. Empathy, all around :) Like so much else, I find its a habit ... and that I need to step up my habits to the next level :) xx, Molly

Oh, Janet, oh no!!! So sorry! A good virus scan program + a Saturday morning might clear up the problem, at least enough to airlift the photos? Indeed, I used to lose/damage/dampen film rolls, and otherwise lose the records, but never was a roll of film infected with a virus :) Best of luck to you and your ailing computer! Fingers crossed. xx, Molly

Indeed, the rain and the green go hand in hand. Should you trip across any other linguistic lovelies, I would love to be a beneficiary. Best to you, Mary, and your fortified hurdies :) (!!! Had to look that one up, as well. A great grin for a Saturday morn!) xx, Molly

By gum, youre correct -- good catch! 300 degrees it is, 300 degrees it now (consistently) reads! Thanks, Julie. xx, Molly

Margit, It's so interesting, still, to experience the "Freeze" from the other side. I still struggle to understand it -- all the talking, that feels to so many like warmth, feels to me, mostly, just loud, and too much :) But then, my familiar is a firm understanding that to speak is to intrude; to talk is to interrupt another's quiet. It is simply a matter of respect, of kindness, this silence, this quiet. Unless, of course, you expect the chatter, in which case I suppose it looks pretty "cold" :) A good lesson in perspective, I guess. For what it's worth? I've driven from coast to coast, several times, and of every state I've driven through, the two which felt most like home to me were Minnesota and... Vermont. So your sense that it's another strong, silent type state? Maybe spot-on :) And definitely right up my alley! Happy New Year to you! (... she whispered) xx, Molly

Absolutely. Butter forms the base. With good, crusty bread, layered right over... Good luck with the onslaught of nuggets -- because yes, this is the way of small children ;)

Mary! You have just introduced me to my new, most very favorite word! How have I come this far in life without ever hearing of this dreich? It is perfection, at least per Urban Dictionarys definition, below: A combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich Indeed, I spent several days in York -- not quite Scotland, but not far -- many years ago, and the weather was absolutely dreich the entire time. We had to buy woolly jumpers (!!) just to stay warm, and eat heaving plates of fish and chips and mushy peas. It was miserable and wonderful in equal measure. (Im a fan of dreich. I just didnt have the language.) Thank you, thank you, for expanding my horizons thusly! I shall forevermore feel a special thrill when the sky goes gray, drizzly and cold. Though for your sake, I of course wish you some days of sunshine and warmth, in the months ahead! Best to you, xx, Molly

Dear Megs, Thank you, truly, for your kind words, doubly so for stepping out of the usual and taking the time to speak. Im honored. I dont do witty, in the slightest, and so your comments are familiar, here, and gratefully received. Here in Ohio, we are not as far North, and yet, the way the green vanishes each fall is still such a shock to my system, it amazes me each time. I do love the punctuation point quality of it all, the way each season stands alone, distinct. Spring seems all the more thrilling, for the contrast, the sudden surge of color, here. But the heart does miss the steady drumbeat of green, yes? All my best to you, Molly

Ah, yes, we love Jan Bretts Gingerbread man, as well :) Hope the cookies were as wonderful as the story! xx, M

January 18, 2005 Some advice: If you ever have the urge to print photos for a kid of yours? A retrospective sort of a thing? For their birthday? Do it. (But maybe give yourself more than, say, 48 hours?) Do it, even though good sense and sleep and, oh, a steady pulse, advise against it. Even though there are some major-ish hurdles. Even though the project resides at the crossroads between ambitious and ridiculous. (Because really, aren't those the very best projects? The loveliest cross-streets? At least, from a distance?) Do it, even though you've not really printed prints since,... Continue reading

I laughed (the lost needle)! I loved (the quilt!) I bit my nails (the color-fastness, yikes!) I cried (more laughing, really, but in the pin cushion? of COURSE!) Man, this quilt has all the makings of a great story. And something to snuggle under, to boot. Love it. xx, Molly

Ah yes, frosting as glue. We know it well. Our currant cake will have a chocolate bonsai on top (method: TBD!!), but we have had our fair share of MM cakes. Because if youre having cake and ice cream, why not candy, as well?? Have fun with your cake, your party, and above all, your boy!

Three times a day, whether I need it or not :-) Works for me!

Ha! Indeed. Just once a year. GO for it, I say. When, by the way, is the boys birthday? We have one, ourselves, coming right up, on January 18th. There is a standing order, on this end, for a red currant cake, NO FROSTING. Weird. True. xx, Molly

Chrissy, hello! First and foremost, thank you, truly, for the note. What a sweet gift on a cold day. Second, the Seattle Freeze! Ah.... what to make of it? Having spent 36+ years in the Northwest, I never knew WHAT people were talking about. Until I moved to the Midwest. Where everyone, everywhere, is full of conversation, at all times, on all days. I think I get it, now. Those Scandinavian Northwesterners are quiet, strong, silent types, kind and gentle and welcoming always, but in their own QUIET, stern, silent way. (Hello!!!). Tough, I imagine, on those who want to, say, talk? Out loud? Whats that about, anyway? But sweet and wonderful and giving, underneath it all. Give them time. They will come around. Clobbered by the beauty stick?!!! Brilliant. Please tell your friend I said so. Happy New Year to you. xx, Molly

Ellen, I am certain you are correct! Indeed, I was JUST thinking of you. Yesterday. True story. Wondering how your New Year is kicking off? Thanks, as always, for the kind words, You are beyond the cats pajamas. And yes, my middles affection for fish never ceases to amaze (big and little share none of it!). A HUGE happy New Year to you, as well. xx, Molly

LOVE. Currently have (and use) the final Make 29 "Big Things" bubble sheet. Can't wait for a closer-up view of the planner. Can't. Wait! HURRY UP!!!!! Oh, wait. All good things come in time. Right. That. Patience.... xx, Molly

Aw, Nibs, your kind comments are always welcome, if undeserved! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. And BOO to years pushing back: theyre big bullies in these parts, as well. The nerve! ;-) Happy New Year to you! xx, Molly

Um, you dont think this shared green fate could have anything to do with mainlining Christmas-flavored gummies by the fistful on December 23, do you? No, no, THAT couldnt be it. Mustve been the cheese....

Margaret, To your point: my watch TV resolution translates, in reality, as watch DVD versions of TV shows which came out 8 years ago, at an unconscionable pace of one episode every 3 months. In other words, a work in progress! It is simply too hard to sit oneself down in front of a screen, when there so many more interesting things to do. Like paint pegs :) xx, Molly
