Easter is upon us. This coming Sunday, in fact. I always think of Easter as the beginning of Spring. I suppose it's partly because at the time I grew up, Easter was when you got your new Spring dress, shoes, and coat. Oh, and the hat. Can't forget the hat! Things have changed now and … Continue reading Monday Musings: Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Indeed, they are! I have started decorating, and baking (as you know if you've been following my Wednesday posts). I have a bit more to do on both counts, but we've got a couple weeks, so all's good. We will be having our family celebration on December 28 this year. Usually, we try to do … Continue reading Monday Musings: The Holidays Are Coming!
We had snow last week. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I live in New England, and it is November. Snow happens. It isn't like it was a full on Nor'easter blizzard. It was maybe six inches, and although it was wet, heavy stuff, the air temperatures stayed high enough that we didn't get any … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Guess It’s Really Winter
Where did the time go? It just doesn't seem like it should be Labor Day weekend already. We'll be seeing pumpkins and mums everywhere soon. "Two's Company" is just about done. I have a few chapters to review this week, but it is basically at the point where I am calling it final. Oh, I … Continue reading Monday Musings: Wow! It’s September!
Last week was the BaldMan's mother's eighty-fifth birthday. She and his Dad, as well as his sister and her husband, came to MA from New York for the weekend to celebrate. Stephanie came for dinner on Friday, and was with us Saturday and Sunday, as well. Jill, John, and Carter came on Saturday for some … Continue reading Monday Musings: Family Weekend
Today is a holiday in the USA. It is Independence Day, more familiarly known as the Fourth of July. It is the day we here in the states commemorate our separation from Great Britain and the forming of our own nation. We've come a long way since those days in the 1700s. We've seen a … Continue reading Wednesday- Well, Not Quite Wisdom
Sorry about the lack of Monday posting. A weekend away will do that to you. Well, maybe not you, you insufferably energetic bunny, but is sure does it to me. So, where was I? I was in Pennsylvania, the land of my birth. I was there for my mother's 90th birthday. (Her actual birthday was Sunday, but the … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: My Mom is 90
Well, you know, right? I have the house done, and we got our tree on Saturday. It's a beautiful balsam- nicely shaped and full, but not so full it takes up the entire room. Lights are on it and I will get the ornaments done. Many thanks, as usual, to our friends at Lawndale Farm … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….
Oh, look- the world is still out there! And all you lovely people, too. Hello! I know I have been MIA for a week or so and I apologize. Our family Thanksgiving was November 17 this year, due to scheduling, which seems to get more interesting every year. We had out of town company, as … Continue reading Monday Musings: And She Rose, Blinking, Into the Light
There is an Irish blessing that says: May your home always be too small to hold all your friends. At times, this past weekend sure felt like our house was too small to hold all the relatives that were there. At the same time, it was really good to have everyone around for a few … Continue reading Monday Musings: Weekend Fun
