and with only a little ego
is a good good thing.

Autumn Nights

The sounds of cicada give way to evening crickets
and my heart gets heavy with "North East Homesickness"
and a deep craving for apple cider.

You Will Find the Answers

One of the most amazing ways to experience and feel community is to make food together
in this case- writing fortunes and then making our own fortune cookies.
The kids did a great job on the writing
...and so did my pastry chef/ on the folding.
Can't wait to have an excuse to do it again.

just too tired

sometimes the tiredness cannot be denied or postponed
and you just have to put on your jammies and go with it.

All Roads Lead Home

I don't often travel alone but had a little journey to chicago for 5 days.
Good to be back. I like the independence sometimes of doing it all by myself.
BUT it is never as much fun as going with the Mr.
And now I miss the beast when I am away too.
The rails leading home tonight were a relief and a comfort.
good to be home.
