July 2017

Thank you for your interest and encouragement in my writing. Without your support, writing wouldn’t be any fun at all. I guess, inside of each of us is a child who wants to please others and make new friends. At the beginning of my writing journey, I never thought I would consider my readers, Facebook friends and followers real friends, but I do and I’m in your debt. Read more

March 2017

Are you as enthusiastic as I am to usher in a season bustling with change? As the fluctuating weather conditions either soothed or bombarded us, our poor oak tree beside the house was struck by lightning and still awaits its fate. Read more


December 2016

“We must have been spying on them,” I said to my sister as we recalled a Christmas Eve decades ago. Somehow, we’d known our parents were erecting a new dollhouse to give us the next morning. Our folks continued working late into the night, while we girls launched into bed before Santa arrived. Read more


September 2016

Last week, my dear 90-year-old mother-in-law said, “Time seems to be moving faster.” I agreed with her, because I’d noticed overnight our temperature had dropped and leaves were turning. I have savored each day of summer, but look forward to autumn’s splendor. Read more

March 2016

Are you as enthusiastic as I am to usher in a season bustling with change? As the fluctuating weather conditions either soothed or bombarded us, our poor oak tree beside the house was struck by lightning and still awaits its fate. We lost several electrical appliances and light bulbs, but fortunately I wasn’t in the shower at the time! Read more

July 2015

Summer has arrived!

Promise not to laugh? We here in the Puget Sound had the warmest June in history. Average daytime temperature: a mere 78.8. The 90s barged in the last few weeks, hovering over the area and making people miserable. Having lived in CT and NJ, I find the 90s with low humidity comfortable. Especially since we just got our new AC installed. Imagine, we’ve lived in this home for 29+ years without it. My husband got the brilliant idea last month. Now, I’m spoiled. Read more

February 2015 – Spring’s Around the Corner?

I notice a smidgeon more light this morning! And a robin is chirping.

Have you seen the first signs of spring or are you still shoveling snow? I hope your pre-spring is off to a good start, be it cloudy or sunshiny, snowing or rainy. For those of you still shoveling snow, send it our way. A warm deluge of rain is melting our precious snowpack in the mountains, next year’s water for our yards. For those of you who are basking in sunshine, enjoy! I’ll try not to be jealous. Read more
