Pansies swallowed by our ebullient vine! Can you tell by these two days of nothing but photos that we have spent both days slaving away outdoors?
When I drove past the heron nests yesterday morning, I immediately knew something was different. Monday night, there were three nests in the tree tops. Yesterday morning, there were only two. There were still three birds, but one was sitting on the branch of the tree where had sat the third nest. I am very […]
Life has been disrupted lately…disrupted by lots of little things that, as Charlie Brown’s Lucy says ” individually don’t mean a thing, but when you put them all together, they make a fighting force terrible to behold.” So many of my friends have been shoved into crisis mode by various issues…our whole office is being rewired (physically […]
I know I repeat myself, but I really do LOVE weekends…this one was no different. Saturday morning early found my friend Deb and me on the road in my trusty seafoam green convertible, headed out into the country to EMACT Festival Open House. Not only were we there to survey the performance space and the technical aspects, […]
Three nests, three adult herons, one on each nest…not sitting in them, but perched on the edge…wish one of them was wearing a spycam so I could see what is going on in there, way high up at the top of the trees overlooking the swamp… Speaking of the nests, they are looking much tattier, […]

Do you ever get that deep down, tired feeling that makes you want to quit everything? Just lie down and sleep your life away? I think it is time for […]
I mentioned in a post a month or so ago that I saw herons back in their nests for the first time this year. Since then, I have caught only the occasional glimpse…until this morning. On my drive to work, I spotted four adults perching atop the three nests…wonder if there are eggs in the […]
Watching “Morning Joe” this morning on MSNBC, I was stunned to hear that the Wall Street Journal’s publication of a cool photo of SCOTUS-nominee Elena Kagan wielding a softball bat (using excellent batting form, I might add) gives off some subliminal message of her sexual orientation. Excuse me? Who among us has not swung a softball bat […]
I spent much of my Mother’s Day outside, thinking of my mom. I was sure she was out in her garden, too. Happy Mother’s Day, mom…I have dirt under my fingernails…do you? Do you wear gloves or do you cast them aside, as I do, almost as soon as I start weeding? Love you.
