Earlier in the week I read an article about the new pandemic-era accessory of bracelets that signal your social distancing boundaries. Event hosts are offering green, yellow or red wristbands to let people know if they can come in for a hug or not. I always thought over my lifetime that my body language, the…

It’s that time of year to begin getting summer priorities in order and thankfully Harper is already on bug patrol, so we’re both prepared to quickly bolt through the yard if anything buzzes within ten feet.

I’ve been known to develop obsessions and lately it appears they are sheet pan dinners (NYT Cooking – Sausage With Peppers & Tomatoes), memoirs and owls. I would love to be able to share a photo of the owl and owlets I’ve been trying to find for weeks, but all I can share is some…

With our coldest temperatures  and biggest snowfall of the year, it was the perfect week to hide indoors after a trip to the market to enjoy the flowers and pick up necessary supplies. Easy to forget the cold world when you’re in a paczki and beignet sugar coma. It was also perfect timing for two…

With weather this week our coldest in two years there was plenty of time for frozen photography and Netflix binge watching. Highlights of the week were the wonderful snowy sunrise out on the lake and watching the fantastic Firefly Lane on Netflix.  While I was watching their friendship and society change over the decades, I was…

Harper and I have been wandering alone through these frigid winter days equally fascinated by any footprints or animal prints we come across as proof that we’re not all alone and the rare sighting is not a mirage. Mr. Cardinal has had a different issue lately wishing for a little alone time with Ms. Cardinal…
