I dreamed the other night that I was in Martha Stewart’s house cleaning up piles of dog poop. It wasn’t even my dog’s poop. It wasn’t even Martha’s dog’s poop. The culprit was one of Martha’s friends’ dogs. The next thing I know I’m thoroughly scrubbing her bathroom because it’s dirty. Apparently Martha’s standards are … Continue reading A Good Place

Full Moon Energy
It’s been a while so let’s just jump right in. Not much changes, really, except that apparently my Easter gift to the neighborhood rabbits is tulips. All but one of them, from my observation. The lone tulip resides in the backyard, which is about as safe to a rabbit as swimming in the Nile. Shuggie … Continue reading Full Moon Energy
Three Years Later: Who Loves a Parade?!
Three years since March 12, 2020, when everyone was talking about this mysterious illness that no one knew anything about other than it was potentially deadly. It was three years ago on a Thursday that Veruca’s school announced a two-week closure starting Monday, when I decided that she wasn’t going to school on Friday. Three … Continue reading Three Years Later: Who Loves a Parade?!
Rain in Random Places
It’s raining again. I live in an area that used to get snow that now never seems to and I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before how much more I hate rain since these two dogs moved in. Worse than when I lived in New York, and that’s saying something. I went to work today, … Continue reading Rain in Random Places
I Take It Back
My “passive PT” has been increased to three days a week because Tuesday it appeared I was on my way to a phenomenon known as “frozen shoulder.” Frozen sounds innocuous enough. I mean, so you can’t move your shoulder, right? Okay, so not terrible, right? A little PT will fix that baby right up. Read … Continue reading I Take It Back
What does it take to live? Asked simply, the simplest answer is breathing and food. I asked Todd this question this morning, as I sat here for the fourth time since December 31st unable to think this post through. This post, by the way, is the last in a four-part series. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and … Continue reading Thyme
Christmas Eve 2022. The morning is blindingly bright, the sun deceiving as the temperature hovers at 7 degrees. The index says it feels like -9. Like so many major weather events, the sunny day after often seems like a promise of better days. Or a terrible joke, depending on who you are. We have plans … Continue reading Rosemary
This morning the gray-soaked dawn is promising a blockbuster shitshow for everyone who has plans for the holidays. Well, except for at least two friends, whose planned family vacation was serendipitously scheduled to depart three days ago (I think it was 3 days ago, though the days for me are melting into one another – … Continue reading Sage
There have been a great number of deaths recently, both figuratively and literally. I, for one, have been reeling with what seems like a continuous and heartbreaking carousel of beloved and familiar faces exiting stage left – Kirstie Alley, Bob McGrath, Aaron Carter, Julie Powell, Jerry Lee Lewis, Leslie Jordan, Robbie Coltrane, Willie Spence, Angela … Continue reading Parsley
