The chicken comes to lunch

September 19, 2021

Friday, I had the pleasure of attending a meeting up in Vermont.  Twist my arm; I had to go traveling to one of my favorite places. Sometimes life is so hard.  😉 Kathleen, my co-worker, and I traveled together.  Good company, good conversation.  We always have a pleasant visit whenever we go somewhere.  Thank you, Kathleen! I enjoy our trips. After the meeting, she asked me if I…


An Angel Steps In

August 2, 2021

Dear Kyla (From Purdue), I just want to thank you so much for all of your help during this past week as Tyler and I realized our big university housing debacle.   It was our own oversight. How thankful I am to have waited for 45 minutes in the phone queue.  If I hadn’t, I would not have gotten YOU.   You were nice, taking me by the hand…


Who are you kidding?

August 23, 2020

Every week I do a video on my instagram account.  It’s either called Wisdom Wednesday or Thoughtful Thursday … depending on what day I pull it together.  🙂 This week I wanted to introduce you to a New England favorite … which you will see here. And, I was thinking that maybe someone out there needed a nudge.  A nudge to set things straight or get something dealt…


Watching A Baby

August 16, 2020

The universal role of being a parent … caregiver, protector, mentor. As many of you know, during the summer months, I spend a lot of time at camp with my family. Through the years, we have always followed the loon families on the lake. Our loon families.  Like clockwork, the loons meet us every spring, scoping out the waters first. They are the first to greet us as our…


Something to Resonate …

August 9, 2020

I have many thoughts going on in my mind this Sunday afternoon. It’s funny, sometimes our minds seem fixated on one thing. Other times it feels as if there is a party going on up there with different songs pumping through the speakers, each with its own rhythm and tune. Very challenging to follow at times, right?! Instead of writing about one thing this week, I am going…


Cheers for Independence Day!

July 5, 2020

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! Deep in the heart of New Hampshire, my family celebrates every year–at the lake. This is our special place that you all read about last week.  I thought that I would share some pictures. Our flotilla that set out in the morning of the 4th to do a little exploring. We waterskied and tubed our way through the afternoon..hold on Sam and…


The Lake..

June 28, 2020

It’s that place that I can’t get to fast enough and never want to leave.   … and my compass always points me in that direction. The soft smell of pine greets as soon as I turn down Lake Road. Whispers of welcome back … and the dog begins to whine. Since before I was born, this place has been a part of me, woven deep into the spirit of…


Doing Dishes

August 29, 2019

This summer has been interesting. I started it with shin splints and am ending it with a splinted finger.  Am I getting old? Naw…I refuse to be any age older than 35. When I bought my new house, last November, the dishwasher didn’t work right.  I had a couple of people I know look at it, clean it, and check it out.   It remained finicky. So when the…


Rainy Day at the Fair

August 22, 2019

Sometimes it’s just quite cozy to be at the fair on a rainy day… Lots of cards, lots of eats, lots of laughs. No crowds.  In the background a steady beat from the concert being played up in the rafters of the old tin roof. No heat, no lines, no pressure. Just a rain heavy wind gusting in through the big barn door at the end of the…
