Ah. You thought it was an animated movie from the 1980s, didn’t you? No, it’s our annual “It’s Too Big. No, It’s Not!” event over here. Like many Americans every year we dutifully put a tree in our house. In the Pacific Northwest we are not short on fir trees.... Continue reading

Photo courtesy of House Industries, 2013. I'm feeling Swedish. I can't put it off for another year. I need to make these. (And I will not cheat and go to Ikea.) Continue reading

Today is the day that we all get together to eat. And eat. And eat. And give thanks. I love that. Along with Halloween, it's probably my most favorite of holidays (and I'm not entirely sure how that happened because I used to be a real Christmas freak). So here's... Continue reading

Thanks for the compliments, Lisa. Later I was wondering what would happen if I made a meatloaf in it. *laughs*

This Daughter got invited with a friend to hang out on Halloween which is good because she’s at the age where she’s too big to go door-to-door (even though she still wants to). As her evening wore on, that later turned into going to shoot zombies with air guns in... Continue reading

River Ghosts So, do you find this antique photograph as creepy as I do? Good. I'm glad I'm not alone. (Yes, I bought it with that original batch earlier this year. So much diversity in other people's discarded memories, right?) I could caption this one by saying something snarky like... Continue reading

Sorry for the radio silence. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy in a good way. And busy-in-a-good-way is good as long as it doesn't spin out of control, right? Lots of pretty colors but nothing that overwhelms. Just like autumn should be. Continue reading

I'm a-tryin'...I'm atryin'... *laughs* It's hard to keep September in perspective though, isn't it? We'll have to bolster each other when one of us gets low.

"We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost." —Henry Rollins Hello, September. I see you hiding among the rocks. You in all your bright color. You really are back in full force though you pretend not to be.... Continue reading

Oh, dear. The dreaded why-won't-this-locker-open-oh-wait-it's-the-wrong-one. (Tell her that later it happens with cars in large parking lots.) I had to laugh because I could hear your voice, Carrie, as you explained and reexplained again. Did you mention to her about going to the wrong class and then having to leave to find the right one? I told my two that that happens to EVERYONE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH so... you know, no worries. ;-)

School house doors are a little intimidating when you're seeing them for the first time. That doesn't seem to change. One Room? Can you even imagine what that was like? I can't even stand when the internet goes out for half a day, which makes writing on a slate with... Continue reading

It's definitely worth the trip! There was a lot of driving to get to the North Rim. I hear the South Rim is easier to get to but gets 4 million visitors a year compared to North Rim's 400,000 visitors.
