I'm having a hard time thinking of this as a Lenten project; the only sacrifice made was emotional in that I r-e-a-l-l-y didn't want to knit it. It didn't take that long....although I think I might have looked somewhat like a whirling dervish wielding knitting needles. I obsessively knit like... Continue reading

Daffodils? Jonquils? Narcissus? Lent 'lily'? Whatever you call's a sign that winter is over, that spring is near here! Lore connects it to prosperity and good luck, but never give just a single bloom....that can portend misfortune. I don't know what it means when you spin it. (I just... Continue reading

I'm a survivor of Buffalo winters, but these people in KY just don't GET the weather talk. (I've been trying to educate them for over 35 years). They most definitely don't 'get' my eternal summer-heat-mosquito-bitchin' sessions, either.

But for these last two weeks of Lent, I've decided to give up some small pleasures...some indulgences perhaps and do what I should... Continue reading

There are the friends to whom you simply cannot say 'no'.... because they are so soft-spoken, and generous, and thoughtful and you wished you were more like them.... (although I DO wish there was NOT a deadline on this little ditty!!!!) There are virtual friends, you've never met.... who were... Continue reading

I've been listening to The Mad Sculptor by Harold Schechter, a true crime 2015 Edgar nominee. It takes place in the exclusive Manhattan neighborhood of Beekman Place on Easter Sunday 1937. I'm still listening to the lead-in to the actual murders committed by Robert Irwin, a brilliant but obviously disturbed... Continue reading

I spent the weekend with my best friend from junior high school. She was the one I rescued from an awful blind date. The one I ate cold pizza with at 4 am. The one with whom I shared messy, oozing, cream-filled, sugar coated ladylogs --- at 60 mph down... Continue reading

There is still snow on the ground---actually a lot of snow on the ground, but the temperatures are climbing steadily. I just filled the bird feeders; My outerwear consisted of no hat, no gloves, no coat, no scarf----only boots. The light is brighter. The birds are chirping. The days are... Continue reading
