It’s that time of early fall to get your hands on the pumpkins, ghords, corn, sunflowers, and caramel apples. Yes, you can get a caramel apple at the grocery store, but you can not even compare it to the huge, granny smith doused with caramel and conveniently stabbed with a stick (who ever invented that […]

It’s about time for a ‘Joe the Turtle’ update. Yes, I am very pleased and happy to report that at least Joe’s life has not changed one bit because of Covid. He is in excellent health. He sun baths every day. He does his yoga moves. He sat on my foot and watched the whole DNC with me. […]

With the resurgence of going to the movies by the car load, it was brought to my mind just how much fun drive in theaters are! I was a teenager then and it was a great date night. I will never forget Artie coming to pick me up, a bottle of ‘Tango’ tucked away with […]

How is it that Summer time flies by so fast? That Wisconsin expression, “knee high by the Fourth of July” is true. The corn stocks are rocketing out of the ground.

They were open […]

It’s that time of the year, before the Lenten fasting begins! ‘Fat Tuesday’ is the one day of hoopla before ‘serious reflection’ of Lent. The marvelous colors, food, and party time feeling is much needed in this last stretch of winter. My friends, Kim and Scott Smith, owners of the Naeset Roe Bed and Breakfast […]

This past years cookie making and sales were better then ever, I’m so happy to make so many other people happy. I had this really adorable tea pot timer for years and years. Each batch of Ginger Molly cookies gets eight minutes. Well, it took me four batches of them to realize my timer was […]

My framer and great friend, Donna Heideman, and friend, pastel painter, Sally Hall, and I used to take the ride out to Paoli to visit the ‘Artisan Art Gallery’ often. Fantastic art and a great little restaurant was an ideal day out for us. It has taken some time for that gallery to get to […]
