Edgartown: We should all count our blessings

Due to a series of miscommunications and blunders on my part, last week’s column didn’t make the hard copy of the paper and was a little tough to find online. Hopefully, I’ll be getting...

January is beginning to fade, as we enter the last few days of the month and head into February, the longest shortest month of the year. I kid, of course. I’m actually making an...

Edgartown: Boy, do I miss them

Is it just me, or has January 2022 been a wee bit of a rough start? I try to look for the silver linings, but they seem to be very adept at hiding these...

Edgartown: Keeping my sanity

I always lull myself into a false sense of security that January is a slow month. And it would be if I didn’t still do some bookkeeping work on the side. I slowly stroll...

Edgartown: You are amazing

Happy New Year! 2022 is upon us. It doesn’t seem possible “Y2K” — the change from 1999 to 2000 that had us all on edge that the whole world would crash when our computers...

Edgartown: The lighter side of life

Christmas Day has come and gone. I have to be honest. This year wasn’t overly smooth. The kids are now adults with their own plans and ideas. We’re juggling many homes and visits and...

Edgartown: Hopefully, we’ll all make it through OK

Every year I think that this will be the Christmas season that I’m organized and on top of everything — baking, gift buying, decorating. Apparently, I’m still wrong about that. I’ve bought some gifts,...

Edgartown: It is clearly worth it

The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen any spirits for Christmas in Edgartown. Thankfully, warmer temperatures accompanied the rain on Saturday so people were still out and about to enjoy the various festivities on Saturday,...

December is already sprinting past me it seems. I think it is my realization today that next weekend and the weekend after are going to be very busy, prompting mild panic on my part...

Edgartown: The list is long

My goodness. I fumbled a wee bit when I typed in the date for this column. Dec. 2. How can that be? I was just saying to someone last week that this year, and...

Edgartown: Silver linings

Happy Thanksgiving! Even with all the challenges in the last couple of years, the trials and tribulations of COVID, the political discord, and the heaviness that seems to permeate day to day life some...

Edgartown: That snuck up on me pretty quickly

Nov. 11 turned out to be a lovely day to celebrate and thank our veterans. I remember some mighty cold ceremonies at Ocean Park when my kids were little but last Thursday was a...

Edgartown: The last two weeks have been a wild ride

The last two weeks have been a wild ride. Starting with the huge nor’easter causing so much damage heading into Halloween weekend to the wind and rain over that weekend that lead to crazy...

Edgartown: Everything is still mostly green

I write this week from the highway heading home from New Hampshire, where we spent the weekend with friends and family. Our girl Kiana came down to Seabrook from UNH to hang with us...

Edgartown: Unofficially, it has already started

Happy Halloween! Halloween is on Sunday officially but unofficially, it has already started. From Halloween-themed decorations in windows to scarecrows in front of businesses to all the bite-sized candy everywhere, it’s clear that it’s...

Edgartown: A lot of free time

I’m writing this week from my empty nest. And I can’t say that I’m a big fan. While I’m delighted that my kids are off doing their thing, I’m realizing that I don’t have...

Edgartown: Scholastic Book Fair

I’m sitting down to write this week from the tiny airport in Yuma, Az. I took advantage of the long weekend to come out to see my boy for 48 hours. It’s time to...

Edgartown: Kids’ fitness program

This past weekend brought some much-needed warm temperatures and sunshine. A friend and I attempted to paddleboard in Sengie on Saturday but the wind was daunting. So we eventually threw in the towel and...

Edgartown: Fall fun at Farm Institute

I’m so far behind schedule this week. I’ve had a little bug problem in my kitchen, thanks to the dry dog food, and I’ve been working very hard to get rid of them. It’s...
