Be Back Soon.


It irritates me no end to find interesting blogs where the last post was in 2009, and no word about where that person ended up. It’s like having a good friend move away during the night, and not tell you where she’s gone. (Not that that’s ever happened to me, of course. But I digress.)

All that snow shown in my last post? ’tis but a memory.

Meanwhile, I have been busy with stuff like work, auctions, volunteering, and “Modern Family.” So you can see where a lot of time gets eaten up. Time that a gal could use constructively, unless the gal is someone who occasionally makes bad choices.

So! All this to say: I’ll be back soon. I’ll be writing about auctions or hospice work or maybe both of those or none, and I hope to get it done this weekend. But I haven’t disappeared. Hope your lives are going swimmingly!

A Winter Wonderland.


We copywriters eschew the notion that a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes when you’re feeling kinda lazy and there is something spectacular right outside your door, you just gotta bite the bullet.

Winter came late to the party in Minnesota, but it’s been having a blast. Take a look!

The front of the house. Thank goodness for strong teenage boys who enjoy shoveling. Or maybe it’s the money they enjoy. Whichever it is, I don’t care. I’m just happy I’m not the one doing it.

Here’s my former lovely winter flower pot. It’s taken a beating:

It’s easy to lose white cars in a snow storm, too.

And here’s the view from the back deck. (Not that I have a front deck, but you know what I mean…)

So we have our work cut out for us. We’ve needed the snow and most of us are glad it’s here, but geez… enough already.

And PS: Don’t forget to feed the birds!
