[Quiet Thoughts] The Challenge of This First Month

Photo: A moment from the only purely blissful moment that I had this month. I took Ursa Minor to the Paul Revere Capture Site in Minute Man National Park one morning earlier this month while Ursa Major was in preschool. Ursa Minor and I had gone to Starbucks first (a rare treat) and then I…

Eris, Please Take Yourself and Your Apple to Another Party…

  Photo: What is that? Oh, well, if you look closely, you’ll see a wire danging in front of my car in the middle of my driveway. You see, I had a beautiful morning planned of some light grocery shopping and cleaning while Ursa Major was at preschool yesterday. But when I left Roche Bros….

Super Mom is an Illusion

Photo: Ursa Major blowing out the candle for his third birthday. He really is such a big boy now… I can’t believe it. He is quiet reliant, too… more so than I could even give him credit for. Still though, I wish we could have done more for him this year. Next year, we’ll have…

Quiet thoughts?

  I was such a hot mess yesterday. I tried to blog no less than four times! There was not a single point of my day that was quiet enough for bang out a few paragraphs. Until about 9 o’clock last night. At 11, my husband found me in bed, laptop in my lap, jazz…

The Heart is Beating, the Soul is Full of Laughter

Are we really color blind?

I never take the time to stop and read other people’s blogs, and when I do, I’m always delighted. I’m so grateful for this post, especially today, that I have to share.

[Quiet Thoughts] Today is Better than Monday

Photo: A most gracious and glorious gift.   This Friday morning, I need to stop and say thank you. Thank you to dear bloggy friends, like Zeudytigre, who has been following my journey from afar for a long time and wrote two wonderful posts about surviving her own construction experiences. The story about the process…

With Every Victory Comes Two New Challenges…

Photo: I took the boys to Drumlin Farm today so we could all get some fresh air. Best decision I made all day.     I have a landline, but I can only dial out and cannot get phone-calls in. I have a 2nd floor toilet and sink, but cannot use the very lovely clawfoot…

It’s Rough Around the Edges…

Photo: A view of the master bedroom this morning. One of my favorite things to do when moving into a new place is observing the light throughout the day. The house has beautiful moments of sunlight throughout the day in different rooms. I can’t wait to play with color in the context of the changing…
