At 8:30 am this Sunday, while I wiped the sleep from my eyes and noticed that my only snuggle partner was my fourteen year old dog (lifted lovingly onto the bed each morning by her papa), I heard a familiar muffled clamor coming from the kitchen.  My husband was making fresh sausage for us to […]

It’s Thanksgiving week!!!!!!!!!!  As you can probably guess, this is my very favorite holiday of the year.  It’s all about family, friends, food, and expressing gratitude.  My cup of tea.  Traditionally, we feast on turkey and a multitude of seasonal veggies.  And starch, starch, and more starch.  Of course, there must be rolls, stuffing, mashed […]

Well, they say, “When it rains, it pours.”  And they (whoever they are) were not joking.  Sandy came through and thoroughly trashed the Northeast- including my beloved home beach town of Sea Isle City, New Jersey. My brother, his wife, and three sick children, are holed up in a South Jersey hotel- the second hotel […]

As I write, I am devouring a bowl of Atlanta Fresh Greek yogurt mixed with a drop of local honey and fresh Georgia peaches.  Nom, nom, nom!  Spring is the best!! Yesterday was Sunday, and the Grant Park Farmers Market was packed at noon.  In previous years, farmers and vendors would begin winding down and […]

It’s a quiet Monday morning.  Just me and the happily singing birds.  Everything else is peaceful- as if people are trying to stave off the work week just a few minutes longer.  It was such a beautiful weekend here in Atlanta- warm and sunny during the day, and cool in the evenings- like beach weather.  […]

I love cheese.  When I was in second grade, I made an All About Me book.  For my “favorite foods” page, I cut out and pasted on a giant tower of cheese from a magazine.  The tower o’ cheese was so tall, it stuck out of both ends of my book.  Almost 30 years later, […]

Well, hello there, friends!  It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon, and I am thankful to be back in flip flops and tank tops!  That cold snap was scary- for my body and my mind.  I was concerned that all the vegetables in the ground, trying to grow into something wonderful, would be squashed by dropping temperatures.  […]

Hey, Y’all!  I’m going to bite my tongue while I say this, but I think the warm weather is here to stay.  I could not be more pleased.  Writing on my porch, listening to birds sing and watching squirrels compete in ever-changing obstacle course challenges is definitely on my list of favorite ways to spend […]

Well, the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been gobbled right up, and folks seem to have moved with a swiftness onto donning their homes and yards with red bows, tinsel, and giant blow-up Santa sleighs.  I’d better hurry up and share my reflections about my absolute favorite holiday now, so I can get my […]

It’s raining yellow leaves in my yard as I type and the little birds are flitting about chirping like maniacs.  Such a welcome sight!  This week has been true to form for Georgia fall- chilly in the mornings, strip down to t-shirt midday, and layer back up in the evening.  People watching always cracks me […]
