Say It and Leave It Friday Round-Up

I probably should but I don’t agonize over my writing. I learned to write fast on a typewriter and as the assignments got bigger, the likelihood of revision diminished. It was hell using an eraser on onion skin paper or using the white paint… Continue Reading “Say It and Leave It Friday Round-Up”

Krispy Kreme Friday Round-Up

My younger daughter has a tattoo that says “What is past is prologue.” At first, the tattoo’s message bothered me because it seemed fatalistic, a surrender to the life-defining power of one’s hard times. It seemed shorthand for I can’t do that or be… Continue Reading “Krispy Kreme Friday Round-Up”

I’ll Bring You an Ice Cream Sandwich Friday Round-Up

This is the intersection of Old Seney and White Wash Roads in the woods east of Grand Marais, Michigan. We drove there just to drive there. We didn’t see any bears or moose or wildlife except an astonishing bird which might have been a… Continue Reading “I’ll Bring You an Ice Cream Sandwich Friday Round-Up”

Love the Old Man Author Friday Round-Up

My husband’s new book is coming out October 15th. This makes it sound like he has an old book but he doesn’t, he has just the one, a quite good one, but I am caught up in the lingo of book promotion, wanting to… Continue Reading “Love the Old Man Author Friday Round-Up”

Wrangle Those Shots Friday Round-Up

Baby and her mama are going home in a few days. It’s time but we will miss them. It is something to have a newborn in your house – like an extended Christmas, where you carry around that feeling of specialness to places like… Continue Reading “Wrangle Those Shots Friday Round-Up”

Heady Friday Round-Up

This was a week of a lot. There was a lot of setting the alarm for early meetings, a lot of faces in little Zoom boxes, a lot of diapers in the trash bags Swirl ripped open and scattered about, a lot of puzzling… Continue Reading “Heady Friday Round-Up”

Live in the Moment Friday Round-Up

If you are bored, you have only yourself to blame. This is one of my Puritan mama’s favorite sayings. Actually, she only needed to say it two or three times before it became embedded in my head like a wasp in your ear that… Continue Reading “Live in the Moment Friday Round-Up”

Extra Mayo Friday Round-Up

I want my epitaph to read “She showed up.” Fortunately, there won’t be room on the headstone to talk about lost keys and spilled coffee and long lists of wrongfully heard sentences or the myriad ways in which someone’s performance as a supportive person… Continue Reading “Extra Mayo Friday Round-Up”

Rope a Mope Friday Round-Up

There are weeks when there is nothing good to say. This might be one of them except the heat broke which gave the week a point it would otherwise not have. My petunias are leggy and turning brown, the tiny gnats are nesting around… Continue Reading “Rope a Mope Friday Round-Up”

Outta Gas Friday Round-Up

For a person who doesn’t get paid, I did a good job this week. And I am as wrung out and lumpy as I used to be when I worked for financial reward. I ask – is this a good thing to be so… Continue Reading “Outta Gas Friday Round-Up”
