A Case of the Pregnant Pause

September 12, 2021

There are always those situations that we wish we had handled differently.   I am talking about a bad draw of interaction, a time in which you might have been put into an uncomfortable spot—not because of you, but more because of the mood of someone else. (eyebrow raise) I always feel that I need to immediately come back with a response when I am spoken to. I think most of…

Things Can Be Funny

May 23, 2021

Sometimes things are just funny … yet so telling in a truthful, honest way. Saturday, Stephanie and I attended the New Hampshire Maple annual meeting. Yes! It was our first event with people since the start of Covid, and it felt so nice and free! I enjoyed the connection with my home state. It was comfortable, and it felt eerily familiar, in a way that I couldn’t put…

When a Place Speaks

May 16, 2021

When a place speaks to you… I will never forget that fall day when I had an eerily memorable moment driving through a village. You see, it wasn’t my village.  It sat 15 minutes west of where I lived at the time. It was small, and quaint, and fairly busy, with a happy demeanor, and a relaxing little bustle.  The homes were well kept and the trees looked…

Letting Go and Sending Off

April 25, 2021

And they are off! It was a year late, Covid Style, but FINALLY, there was a prom, and Tyler got to celebrate with his classmates. Complete with masks and social distancing, it was an event! Most of the big day was spent making the farm bus, prom friendly. Used around the farm for carrying parts and tools out to the field crew, Tyler decided it would be great…

Walking the Split Rail Fence

April 18, 2021

It would keep us occupied for hours, walking that old split rail fence at my grandparents’ house. The fence was the boundary between their house and the park. It was also a balance beam for me and my cousin. It seemed so giant and high off the ground. Getting on, upright, and balanced was the most challenging part. How hard it usually is to begin. When navigating the…

It’s Monday Morning

April 11, 2021

It’s Monday morning, and I always appreciate a quick message, to remind me, where I am going and what I am doing. I hope that this jump starts things for you, today, April 12th as you move toward your goals. “Without commitment, you will never start, but more importantly, without consistency, you will never finish.” Best of luck with your week. Go get to it! With love, Kate…

Winter Is Lifting

March 14, 2021

I had a glorious Friday!  I took a drive to NH to cover the Governor’s Tree Tapping Ceremony in Temple at Connolly Brother’s Dairy Farm.  Paired with a lunch date afterward with my parents, it made for such a lovely day–it was like coming out from under the cloak of a long, dark winter. I was pleasantly surprised by the address that Governor Chris Sununu gave and the…

A Reminder: Manners Count

February 21, 2021

Considering who you are and how you interact with others is important. Since Covid, the environment changed, and the landscape for all roads of communication transformed for most of us. However, this change should not mean the tone of how we communicate with one another should change. You may not be going into an office as much, if at all. Interacting face to face with friends and family…

Patiently I Wait…

February 14, 2021

Happy Valentine’s Day!  These are my 3 little Valentine’s, from many years ago.  🙂 During my freshman year in college, I had to take a writing seminar.   The assignment was a poem about love.   I pulled it out and dusted it off. This can work for love or anything that is in your life that you are striving for or waiting on.  Here you go!  🙂 Patiently I…

Mrs. Waite

January 31, 2021

“Catherine, why have we never heard you play the piano?” Piano playing has always been a great hobby of mine. Sitting down to play is relaxing and challenging all at the same time. It oddly serves as a connection with my family too. However, playing the piano is not something that I easily share with others. And this is why … I was in the 5th grade. When…
