Griping about things does not mean I am not aware of my good fortune. In my case, I think everything good that has happened to me harkens back to being born into my particular family. If i had not had my parents and growing up environment, I doubt things would have turned out so well. […]

What a delight it was to get home this afternoon at five pm! How I had dreaded this day! To feel that way – dreading the day and so totally relieved when it was over shows that I am ungrateful and selfish, because this was a day of privilege. I should have been so thrilled […]

I am so happy to have time to blog today! I was not sure l would, because the way I arranged my schedule turned out to be a race from beginning to end. Although I had not planned to spend a lot more money on gifts, I racked up quite a bill today. It was […]

Cleaning

The Fiddle Lake Cottage is cleaner than it has been all week, and maybe even cleaner than it was when we arrived. Floors are swept, glass-topped table has been glass-plussed. I have had breakfast. Only the bathroom needs to be gone over, rooms checked one last time, cooler packed. Finally, an unadulterated beautiful rain-free day […]

Coincidence: I am actually editing this post so putting this footnote at the beginning: I just now, perusing the NYTimes Sunday Magazine section after successfully I might add completing the xword puzzle, my eyes fell to an article (in the “riff” blue section of the zine) by a man named Stephen Marche, believe it or […]

There is very little as luxurious and indulgent as taking an afternoon nap. We are meant to nap in the afternoon, but there is rarely the time to do so, here in the frenetic US. Unlike Mexico, whose citizens customarily enjoy a several hour long afternoon siesta. All things being equal, though, I do prefer […]

It began to drizzle just as I was done with breakfie and all set to go for a trail run with Jenna.  She called to poop out!  I never would have previously dreamed that this hard core fitness fanatic would be ascared of a little rain.  Even though it. ecame a full- fledged steady drencher […]

Vac (aka vacque)

Today is a day long-awaited:  my first day of summer vac.  Actually the very best part of any vac- for me, anyway – is the eve of the first day of vac.  This would have been last night, when I was not finished with work until 9 p.m., and not really finished, not even then. […]

Busyness Is Next To Godliness PLUS An Almost Announcement!

Let’s start with the almost announcement.  I almost think I am ready to sign up — make a commitment — to attend at least the dinner for the Ardsley High School reunion.  I have no interest whatsoever in going on a high school tour — what for?  Going through hs once was quite enough, thank […]
