Rain, rain, go away. Seriously. Go away. We’re tired of you. But maybe the benefit will be gorgeous hydrangea bushes this year, like we had a few years ago. I really have had enough...

Our crocuses are blooming! Does this mean spring is arriving early? Hopefully they know what they are doing. It’s lovely to see them and the snow drops and hear the birds singing. I know...

Well, we finally got our winter storm. Much as I don’t like snow, it does look pretty out the back windows. And I went outside the other night, and the trees had all this...

Happy February. I saw a little sun today. It wasn’t for long, and it wasn’t overly bright, and a chill came with it, but I’ll take it. As I write, there is still some...

I’m sitting here writing watching the rain outside my windows and the snow at the Patriots game. January is definitely here. And my boy went back to Arizona this weekend, so between that and...

Happy December! I already feel rushed. Didn’t I just write last week about taking this holiday season slowly and enjoying it? How can I already feel like I’m in a hurry? I need to...

As I write, it is a chilly November day. It’s Saturday after Thanksgiving, a beautiful sunny day, but cold. I might just have to bundle up tight and take the dog for a walk...
