Las plantas de la casa

Pensé que hoy hablaría de mis plantas; después de todo, los son como mis hijos, y merecen cierta atención por todos los placeres que me dan. Primero, en el apartamento nuevo, planté tres “woolypockets” con los verdes: en el primer tenemos lechuga, cilantro, comino...

Snowy Day at the Garden

Today was the first real snow of the season. Justin & I waited until the snow stopped to go out and shovel the walkways. We brewed some strong coffee, and bundled up with all the warmest gear we have and swept & shoveled the walkways and parking area. Isn't...

This morning I woke up with a hankering for some straight-up-fresh-pressed green juice. I don't usually like to buy fresh-pressed juices because they're ridiculously expensive and I am ridiculously frugal. The past few weeks, though, I've been looking at juicers and...

All Signs Point

Oh. My. Stars. My friend, Petra, invited me to go with her, her husband and her sister to Niantic for their annual pilgrimage to the 30% off book sale at the Book Barn.  So first of all: The Book Barn. My first visit to The Book Barn was with my dear friend Eggie a...

The Storm Has Passed

Well, it is January, and we had a storm. It is New England, after all, and we've been pretty lucky with a reasonably warm winter thus far.  I heard the total accumulation was only 18" or something, but some of our drifts are waist-high, as you can see here: Really,...
