We were looking for a litter box scoop to better filter out the small clumps. We had tried slotted spoons from kitchen stores, tea strainers and colanders, none of them were the right gauge. I shuddered. What if the kitchen utensil I was using to sift shit found its way back into my cutlery drawer…

Described as plush this velvety wine is just what the doctor ordered after a mishap on Central that may have cost us our car. It is a blend of rich Zinfandel, flavorful Syrah, bold Cabernet Sauvignon and smooth Merlot resulting in everything a red wine lover desires. It is called Apothic Red, and was brought…

At our porch christening we were all sitting around trying to synchronize our calendars to help at Caudalie Crest  Winery & Farm during their busy harvest and crush season, “We’re the busiest group of retirees I’ve ever met…” someone said. Not me…I’m not retired I’m just on another course. I’ve gone from student life in…

The best thing about empty nest is not having children underfoot day in day out. It allows me to be utterly myself, eat straight from the fridge, use all the hot water when I shower, dust only when company is expected,  go barefoot outside, watch Netflix instead of reading, sleep without an alarm, ignore the…

Since moving to Rigsby Lane I’ve rubber-necked it past the horse stables every time I go on my walk.  Which is almost every day. I glance over to catch them watching me from the darkness of their stables. I always forget carrots and when one wanders over to the fence I pat my pockets and…

Hubs and I were at Joann’s fabric to buy some more of their really expensive foam.  We suspect it’s really expensive because each time we approach the cutting table the assistant says to us, “You know, this is $12.99 a yard?” And we say, “Do you have any coupons?” And she says, “There’s a 40%…

We did a crush a couple of weeks ago.  Mid-week ones are harder to staff because most of the people who frequent the winery and get on the helper list have J-O-B’s! I was busy and volunteered Hubs to go help unload a couple of tons of white grapes. There was a delay in the…

Some people’s names are easier for me to remember than others’. Recently I met a student from Finland who’s name is Suvi.  Oh my goodness I could not understand just how much difficulty I had remembering it. Not only from one week to the next but several times during the same evening! I just didn’t…

In the parable of the sower, Matthew 13: 3-9, a story that I love, I am reminded that the seed is the Kingdom of God, me. God is the sower. Some of the seed falls on hard ground, some on stony ground, some where thorny weeds grow up and some on good soil. Throughout my…
