Books Read in 2023: The Light Years


Books Read in 2023: I've been wanting to re-read the Cazalet Chronicles. I pulled out The Light Years a week or so ago and blazed right through it. The next book is Marking Time.

Silver and Gold

Our daughter entered three photos in Worcester County Public School's Media Expo and she won a silver medal for her photo of the Cross in the 9th-12th Grade Non-Living Object category (guess they haven't heard of the Life-Giving Cross 🤣) and a gold medal for Young Child Receiving Holy Communion in the 9th-12th Grade Person category!

Edible Flowers


I've been enjoying our window box herb garden for several years and think it would be fun to venture into the world of edible flowers this year. I fully expect that it will be a flop since I've never started things from seed successfully, but it will be a fun experiment!

They Grow Up Too Fast

Someone had to start shaving recently! 

Hoop, There It Is!

It's hard to believe that our daughter's second season of high school basketball has come to a close. She had the highest number of points scored for their final game!



Our youngest son's new passion is geology, so I took him to a little rock shop in a nearby town to find some new treasures for his collection. He's already planning his next visit. Luckily, I have fallen in love with fossils, which they also sell.

A Whole Lot of Eggs

Thrift Store Treasures

was so happy to find this book on Andrew Wyeth's Helga pictures because it reminds me of an exhibit of his work that @willfulmina and I got to see in Cooperstown many moons ago.

The Duralex Picardi glasses are the start of a new collection. As charming as the Bonne Maman jam jar drinking glasses have been, I'm ready for a change.


Afternoon Walk

French Onion Soup

I cannot express to you enough how much the recipe for Best French Onion Soup from Cook's Illustrated is worth. It takes several hours, but most of that is hands-off. I like it best with swiss cheese toasts resting happily in the bowl.

A Pizza Date


Pizza after our walk! I chose two really delicious slices: buffalo chicken and meatball parmesean.


Sunset at the Inlet


My husband and I took a walk on the boardwalk yesterday evening and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.
