Gratitude Project: Home

September 7, 2010

The gratitude project has flown by, and is coming into its home stretch. Rather than writing about my gratitude here every day as I’d planned (and usually do), I’ve found myself lulled into almost complete silence by a season on introspection. Introspection which has not, to put it mildly, been centered on gratitude for the [...]

Speaking Of A Room Of One’s Own

March 17, 2010

This post brought to you by Rio. I had another whole screed planned about the business of blogging and how women are being consumed by big media and advertising agencies, but it will have to wait. Rio had a topic request for today. It went like this: Rio said, “What is the New York Times, [...]

Home. Again.

August 31, 2009

I’m home from a week in the woods with the Witches. Did you miss me? My fey minions posted a few things for me while I was gone. I missed you. There’s another version of me out there who lives full time in an intentional community and does nothing but cook, garden, knit, work magic [...]

Thanks, trash dudes!

August 20, 2009

In the middle of the worst heat wave of the year, our neighborhood trash truck came by and hauled ALL THIS TRASH away from our curb while five little kids looked on and cheered, “We love you, trash dudes!” We also love the friends who came over the night before and hauled all that mess [...]

The Gift of a Garden

May 10, 2009

Last week, Serena’s godfather came by to plant a rose bush for her. Her middle name is Rose, and he wanted her to have flowers. Very sweet and simple. Then he saw our front yard. When we moved into our lovely new home last fall, the front yard was a wasteland. It was also low [...]

I win at life

October 23, 2008

Today came home from work around 5. We hung out for twenty minutes, and as we started planning dinner, I realized I’d forgotten to pick up our farm share. So I threw the baby in the trailer and biked over to Fresh Pond to get it. We made it there just in time, and got [...]

the hard side of moving

August 7, 2008

Rio is home, yay! Rio is home, complicated. She’s got some strong feelings about leaving the only home she’s ever known, as one might imagine she would. Also, she apparently fell through a time warp while traveling and came home with the body of a 4-year-old and the brain of a 20-year-old. Yesterday she was [...]

What I Did With My Summer Vacation

July 25, 2008

I’m back at my house, and my computer, after ten days in Maine training to be a Waldorf preschool teacher. The past two weeks have been among the most dense in memory. Since I last posted, in no particular order: 1. I have learned many wonderful and exciting things about caring for and teaching young [...]

wash or toss, part II

April 19, 2008

I posted this poll a few months back, about what people re-use and what they throw away. I didn’t have a big green agenda about it, I was just curious, but the results made me realize I’m not as green as I think. I was already planning this follow-up post for today, after an awesome [...]
