AND A LITTLE NOTE FROM OUR KABU!

When she leaves for her breaks, I always ask Kabu to text me and confirm that she has arrived safely wherever she's going, there being no-one at her home to worry if no word comes back, and her doing these trips alone.

BUTTERFLIES AND DRAGONS

“Memere, there’s a dragon outside!” She stood staring out the doors onto the gallery. “Oh? Is it a good dragon or a bad dragon?” “It’s a bad dragon!” Her expression was very serious. There was no doubt – this was a BAD dragon! “Oh no!” I exclaimed. “What do we do?” “It’s okay, Memere,” she soothed.... Sign in to see full entry.

CHIT CHAT ON A SUNDAY MORNING

Woke up to some fresh snow this morning. It was dark at 4:30 AM, but the gallery lights reflected on the accumulated fall, and it’s still coming down, softly, floating easily.

PASSING THE TORCH

I hosted my first Christmas when I was pregnant with my daughter, only missed hosting two since then, and she’ll be turning 50 at the end of this month. Some gatherings were bigger than others, but I really can’t remember any year when there was less than 20 guests present at the table; a mix of... Sign in to see full entry.

THEY ARE OUT THERE!

“I’m still in shock! I mean, I’ve heard of it before, but I was thinking it was that conspiracy stuff.” My son, the two youngest Rugrats, and my son’s girlfriend, K., had come for supper, and we were sitting around the table as K. told us about events that had happened the previous night.

DUE FOR A CHANGE?

I used to dread the arrival of April – income tax time!! When the dread turned to outright HATE, I quit doing individual tax returns. It lessened the stress somewhat, and April was no longer my busiest time of year. However, I work for a huge moving company, and the ‘legal’ date for residential... Sign in to see full entry.

THE BIRD WHISPERER
