The Tale of the Chip

Photo: Can you see the chip in the rim of this here bowl? Not a big deal, right? That’s what I said.   First, before I get into my little tale, I must start with an apology. Boy Scouts ate my weekend, starting promptly on Friday afternoon. I had planned my day for writing Quiet…

[Quiet Thoughts] The Good Fight

Photo: I’m sure there is a perfectly good explanation for why the yard has disturbed places like this. However, my whimsical mind wants to believe the fox and other animals had a dance around the dormant fire pit last night, enjoying a quieted world and a clear sky. I took this photo this morning, and…

Seven Days to Normal

Photo: Black-eyed Susans!!! In my neck of the woods? Had to stop what I was doing to take a picture of these beauties! There are some things that just make you stop and miss home, and these certainly do! Gonna try to find some seas so that I can grow these little babies in a…

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…

At Least My Christmas Card is Ordered

Photo: There was a time when making the Christmas Card was just so easy. But as the boys grow older (yet no less cute), it is hard to get them to be cool in the studio and get it done. We didn’t really have the $200 required to do the studio thing this year anyway….

Multiple Levels of Crazy-crazy!

Photo: The chickens were out of the coop at the Farm on Friday! We spotted them right away and looked at them through the fence. I also learned that the farm sells the eggs from the chickens! WHAAAAA?? Delicious!! There is nothing better than a poached super-crazy-fresh egg. Yummy yum yummers. So much happening. So…

Don’t Even Get Me Started

I made it safely to Maryland, my Maryland, and there is just so much to say about it. Let’s keep organized with a bit of a task list. We must talk about: 1) My crazy ass in-laws. 2) Not seeing my grandma. 3) The stupid house. 4) 700 followers!?!?!?! 5) What happens next. Augh, my…

How do you regain a week of your life?

Thank you for being patient with me last week. I was no where near the bombing. We never go into the city on Marathon Day because traffic and the T are bananas, and I’d rather not be “that woman with a stroller” in the crowd. Crowds make me frustrated–people are always either walking too slow…

A quick non-post…

  As you know, I write on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So I’m putting up a post, but I don’t have much to say. Because I know that I’m going to have a long one on Monday. Because my in-laws are arriving tomorrow, and I’m hosting them for dinner tomorrow. The birthday party is on Sunday….

A Series of Disappointments

  I don’t know why I got all excited about Easter. Maybe it’s because the winter is so long and Easter is my barometer of spring-ness. It’s an excuse to go buy fresh new outfits, get the boys a haircut, go outside and blow bubbles and so on and so forth. We chose not to…
