Sandwiches by Connal

Sandwiches by Connal

We were hungry, and as is often the case we couldn’t bring ourselves to cook. All we wanted was a sandwich. What we got was neighborhood regulars regaling us with recommendations (“Ask for well-done fries, they do ‘em a little light–you’ll learn…”) and stories (“Did you see that youtube video…”) and ideas for next time [...]

Any Minute Now

Any Minute Now

A hint of sunshine today. A hint of heat. It’s going to get warm this week and I can’t wait. I love the days when you can leave the windows open. I love going for a walk without a sweater. I love sitting on the front porch with a glass of iced tea and a [...]

They’re graceful, considering. You don’t see toad sex every day. Well, maybe you do, but I don’t. What is the result of toad love? That would be a tadpole. Or [...]

Hat People

Go ahead, click the link and scroll down. The difference is amazing. Johnson field’s been soggy lately, but in my five [...]

Needs

Needs

Tired from my birthday! I ate a lot. Wore me out. These days, I don’t need a party. All I need is my family of John, Boz and me, cozy in our living room. And computers: one for John and one for me. A bone for Boz. (Addicts, all.) And books. And crossword puzzles. And [...]

Self Portrait

Self Portrait

It’s my birthday, so a little self-reflection is in order. This isn’t a “big one,” though they do tend to get bigger as they go. But it’s as good a time as any to check in with myself and see how I’m doing: Never as well as I mean to.Always better than I could be [...]
