a good excuse.

No kitchen? I know just the place! Num!! After daring to cancel on a meeting and being brave enough to ask for what I need, I get the reward of sitting in beaming sunlight and listening to the quiet of no banging and heav-hoeing. Ahhh. Fresh white subway tile walls surround me and all I [...]

pulling over for awhile.

Our family just got a big taste of summer. We visited my Finn-land*, my goodness, my take-my-breath away summertime of sweetness. After (what should be 7) 9.5 hours in the van trekking all the way to Northern Michigan, these blond heads were one of the highlights that made the trip oh-so worthwhile. Meet Mr. C’s [...]

easy for me.

After announcing he is going to take Mr. C for a boat ride and that I can have a break, Mr. K is all smiles upon hearing me reply with “can I come too?” Looking back from the nice seat offered to me I see Mr. K happily sitting on the floor of the canoe [...]

happy march!

And really – really for those anywhere near MN, this getting into March business is a big deal! And rally – rally for a moment with us about Women’s History Month. Thanks Heath for sitting with March and passing along what inspired you. There is something good, solid and grounded about pausing and looking at [...]

more me.

I’ve been spoiled of late. Like major. Lots of birthday to me – em as in more of me – focus. Think ginger, chocolate, cranberry and goat cheese. And that was just Tuesday afternoon. Afternoon snack? No—even better—these are some of the layers that were gingerly spread on my face with a bit of neck [...]

crying over spilt milk…

…and not just any milk. Special steamed milk from 4bucks, with two pumps of mocha and two shots of espresso. Dang. And I was really moving one foot in front of the other on this rainy Monday. I went from putting clothes away in my bedroom, bathing Mr. C, cleaning the bathroom while he bathed [...]

off to work!

Up at at ‘em. A rare experience. As in the first and likely last of this year. I wake up and leave the house—to work. Mr. K stays home—well, trying to still work. I think I needed this. I work. Yea. You work. We all work – and lots of us even work from home [...]

alive and well.

Buffalo was a success (according to my standards!) And so glad to have a new hunting buddy along – that was fun M!! You’ve got a good eye for game girl. As well as a front porch. (!!!) Ohhh- I would love that! No accidents – besides a spilt mocha at a stop light. Shoot! [...]

in and out.

How exciting! A moving truck in our driveway. And these people I love moving in. Having one week to prepare for their stay we hauled, and lugged, and threw, and goodwilled our way to creating some space. I recall our first conversation: ”So-ahhh. What now – do you need to head back and get more things?” [...]
