It's so nice to be back to my routine ... meals on time and what I really want to eat. Walking. Working. Cuddling with Dooley. I've got good memories of time spent with ... Read more
Quiet house!
Sunday, November 28, 2010      4 comments

My house is quiet again. The kids all left this morning and have checked in to let me know they're safely home again. The dishes have all been done. The refrigerator has been emptied. The table needs a leaf taken out. There are a couple of ... Read more
The house is full

I'm a mom. I enjoy having my kids come home to visit. The fact that they're both married simply means there are more kids to come home for holidays. I am so blessed that my girls (and their husbands) want to spend Thanksgiving with me at my hous... Read more

We celebrated Dad's 80th birthday last evening at the Mandarin Kitchen in Minneapolis. His wife, Karen, put the party together. The owner of the restuarant is one of her piano students, and they are good friends. Karen worked with her to create ... Read more

So how is my decorating coming along? Slowly. I have a small tabletop tree that I like to put in my bedroom. I pack it away in a box by itself along with the items I place around it each year. So that one is pretty simple ... find the right b... Read more
Holiday village pics
Monday, November 15, 2010      3 comments

So yesterday I was thinking about my holiday village and whether I should put the buildings in their accustomed places or mix them up some. I opted to mix them up. I'm not sure if I really like them this way ... the "scenes" look a little sparse... Read more

It's that time of year - time for Christmas music and decorations and trees. Who says you need cookies and breads and candies to celebrate the season? I realized yesterday that we are now less than 6 weeks away from Christmas Day. Time to get ... Read more
I got so much accomplished ...

I've had a busy day. Not stressed busy, but full busy. First on the agenda, my weekly Bible study. But there was a church-wide rummage sale going on in our normal meeting room, so I needed to find another space and set up the tables and chair... Read more

I received an e-mail from my dad's wife this morning. She's organizing a small celebration for his 80th birthday at their favorite Chinese restaurant in the Twin Cities. Would I like to come? What a silly question! Of course I'd love to com... Read more
Quiet Sunday

It's been a quiet day today. Isn't that how Sunday should be - a day of rest? After church, I came home, changed into a snuggly sweatsuit, sparked for a while, practiced piano for a while and then watched a movie. It almost feels like vacation! ... Read more
Snowflakes and sunsets
Friday, November 05, 2010      1 comments

I looked out the window this morning and saw snow flurries falling to the ground! Nothing was sticking ... it's still too warm out (I think) for that. The flurries didn't last long. I saw a beautiful sunset this evening - the sky was full o... Read more
Just three more weeks!

Did you realize that Thanksgiving Day (US) is only 3 weeks from today? And Christmas is one short month later? I've got lots of ideas - what I want to do, what I want to buy, what I want to make. Do I have enough time to get things done? My... Read more

Hooray! They're all back in the ground! Early weather reports this week suggested that we would be chilly and rainy today. I was thrilled to have sunshine and 50 degrees at lunch time! I hustled out, planning to naturalize these bulbs aroun... Read more
Daylight savings time
Monday, November 01, 2010      5 comments

This is the last week of daylight savings time for 2010. I'm not sure that moving the clocks forward in spring time really saves us any energy, but I certainly do like having light in the evening. For example, there is a restaurant across ... Read more
Home Sweet Home

If you've been following my blogs this week, you know that I do a lot of work-related traveling. As a matter of fact, my job keeps me on the road more than 60% of my time over the course of an average year. That adds up to lots of hotel rooms, r... Read more
