Me again, on the couch, nibbling on a hunk of zucchini bread, with locally grown zucchini and blueberries, and trying to capture my breath. My little butterbean is blessedly asleep and it is during these quieter moments that I try to pen some musings. And it is quite common for my thoughts to drift to [...]

My Granpops peacefully succumbed to a battle with a prolonged illness this week and the reality of his passing is still seeping in. When I was younger, us grandkids loved to crawl through the numerous tunnels of his wine cellar and I remember it feeling like a vast labyrinth; we’d stumble and giggle down in [...]

Laughed at this nugget. Happy Monday! =^..^=

Fun things afoot and I am slacking with updates this week, I know. I am ferociously giddy with autumn wine-making. This week we harvested and pressed our wild apples and grapes, with two carboy-filled juic-y science experiments now bubbling in the kitchen with yeast and honey.

Many of my friends subsist paycheck-to-paycheck, and they believe stashing away a few [...]

God, I hate bills. Every so often I retreat to my work area, clutching tattered scraps of invoices and receipts, and indulge in a heinously liberating tantrum of writhing in a corner and having a moan while banging my head against the hardwood. While chanting: go away, bills, gooo awaaayyyy. (thrashing and banging) Then someone [...]

Languorous Austerity

…languorous austerity “As long as you still experience the stars as something “above your head”, you lack the eye of knowledge.” —Friedrich Nietzsche scanty reflection. =^..^=

I am suffering through a severe lack of sleep. The wee one has been wrangling a fever-induced wakefulness the past two nights due to her one-year shots last week; not only am I pale and sluggish, but a persistent throbbing has emanated from behind my left eyeball, making it nearly impossible to stare at a [...]
