By Kris Neri You would not believe how much greenery grows in the Arizona high desert, especially in the spring and early summer. Well, it surprised me anyway. We get virtually no rain, have low humidity and only limited irrigation.... Continue reading

Hank, thanks for alerting me to your post. THE ART OF PIE sounds amazing. I'll look for it the next time I'm in a bookstore.

Elaine, if you were here, I'd love to make you some bread!

Deb, what a great story about your dad. I'm glad he found bread baking to be satisfying during his recovery. I started decluttering earlier this year, but I've already abandoned that! Too hard.

Mark, if you were here, I'd give you some. I make small rolls that I especially love.

Laura, your cake sounds great. So sorry it doesn't work at altitude.

Art, it is fun! I'm glad you discovered it, too.

by Kris Neri at the Femmes Fatales I’ve always enjoyed cooking, but I’ve never been much of a baker. Not only do we not eat many desserts in our house, it seems to require more precision than my cooking style... Continue reading

Very true, Laura. It is really shocking how much people are paying to store things they simply can't give up.

Elaine, books are my downfall, too. I have learned to cull some out, even if it kills me. But I always seem to be picking up a few more. I think I need to apply Hank's method -- keep my favorites and let the others become someone else's favorite.

Cathy, I admire how dedicated you and your husband have been to the idea of not collecting too much. I admire your discipline!

Mark, I really understand. My books are exploding, and for years my solution was always to buy another bookcase. Now I really don't have any more space for shelves.

Hank, what a wonderful perspective! I love the idea of giving someone else something that will be their first choice

Susan, I understand completely. I love having being surrounded by books, too. And it sounds as if your husband needs to be surrounded by the things he loves, too. I'm sure you two will work that out. Hope you'll both be happy in the new home.

Art, what a good way to do it. Thanks to both you and Margaret. With just disposing of one item a day, I bet it doesn't feel like purging.

by Kris Neri at the Femmes Fatales I have a confession to make — I’ve started purging. No, I’m not confessing to forced barfing. What I’m trying to say is that I’ve begun shedding stuff. I’m building up bags and... Continue reading

by Kris Neri I’ve never been really big on New Year’s resolutions. Some years I’ve made them, some not. Rarely have I followed through with them, not right after the start of the new year anyway. When it comes to... Continue reading

What a sweet Christmas story! I'm sure Chelsea's going to love it.

Cathy, I envy you that perfect spot...sigh. It sounds lovely.

Kate, good for you for thinking about it, even though it was so hot. You weren't nuts, you were smart!
Toggle Commented Dec 7, 2016 on Where do you put the tree? at My Weblog
Anne, what a clever idea! We don't just decide where to put it based on our home designs, but on our family situations, too.

Donna, it sounds as if you have that perfect front window, but I don't envy you moving those boxes. My own decluttering has to start one of these days.
Toggle Commented Dec 7, 2016 on Where do you put the tree? at My Weblog
Elaine, we all make adaptions based on our pets' behaviors. We once had a cat who dragged boxes out from under it so she could attack the bows, and a dog that would rip off the wrapping paper. I can't imagine hearing the tree coming down at 4 am!
