I love all films that start with rain:rain, braiding a windowpaneor darkening a hung-out dressor streaming down her upturned face; one long thundering downpourright through the empty script and scorebefore the act, before the blame,before the lens pulls through the frame to where the woman sits alonebeside a silent telephoneor the dress lies ruined on […]

i wore a romper today for the first time in years. i think they are really cute, but i always consider the bathroom question, and decide against them. this one ended up in my wardrobe by mistake. i grabbed it while rifling quickly through a thrift store rack, thinking it was a summer dress. i […]
so we got the first flower bed in. i’m so excited. I’ll have two rows each of annuals and perennials. the second bed is scheduled to go in next weekend, and I’ll use it for all my bulb plants. i also need to find some grasses and other greenery for filling out my future bouquets.

my last trip to paris was to an author event at shakespeare and company. just across the way we could see Notre Dame. so terribly saddened by the disastrous fire last night.
(don’t say i didn’t warn you). these two furry monsters are everywhere. they love sunspots, and comfy nooks and crannies. they also beg shamelessly for hugs and kisses. they are my furry purry companions. the house would seem empty without them!
it was loud in my house today. it was even louder outside with 16 kids playing with wild abandon. While we adults bundled up because of the chill (thank you nasty wind from the north), the kids didn’t even seem to notice that if felt like 10 degrees (Celsius) outside today. we did have lots […]
