There is a high likelihood that the latest flu bug is about to descend upon my household. The husband came home with the cough, the throat, the chills. If the big strong guy catches it, then we’re probably all goin’ down. So, I’m going to keep this short and sweet, and go get some extra […]

I’m staring at a blank page and realizing I don’t have much to say this week. The week was a white wash of snow and more snow – much like this formerly blank page as a matter of fact. There was some design work here and there, some book reading, some napping, and of course […]

If you are in the northern half of the US this week, you’re probably feeling the cold just like we are here. I think this morning the low was around -11 degrees Fahrenheit. I hear rumors that on Sunday we won’t even get above zero. I guess that’s one way to bring in Christmas spirit! […]

Our home has become a storybook picture of snow on snow. The trees are all coated, the roads are coated, my dogs feet are freezing and frankly, so am I! But, it is a beautiful, clean, crisp, world outside – much like this image from Ryo Takemasa.

You may have noticed there was a really big election this week. No matter which side you are on, it was bound to get messy. I’m tired of the hatred I’m seeing, I’m tired of the judgement – and that’s post-election I’m talking about. If you’re reading this, be a voice of change by being […]
