A little chipmunk tartare, that’s what I believe this huge raptor (hawk? falcon?) chilling on our deck this morning had a hankering for. WOW. He (or she) was very carefully looking under the table, around the herb pots, perhaps hoping for a bit of tarragon as seasoning? I’ve often seen the birds circling overhead, but…

Very quiet, low-key day. Not feeling top-notch, I must say, it’s a, well, hormonal-type thing. ‘Nough said. But definitely knocked me down for the day, damn. Good pick-me-up in the form of…Feminine Hinjinx, at Suz’s house, back to our normal routine. Woo hoo! Laughter is the best medicine, for whatever ails you, without a doubt….

We had a visit from Beth Martinez and her adorable daughters Gabrielle and Sydney today. Beth was my neighbor and walking partner for years, and it was great to catch up with her. Man, we were so good about walking (because Beth is really disciplined), we walked 5 miles several mornings per week, at insanely…

Happy Birthday Etta! My sister Etta is 22 today, celebrating not in NYC but in Buenos Aires. I’m not sure what her specific party plans are, but I know she’ll be eating very well! She’s staying for five weeks with friends of her aunt Anne, the Deane family, and they are caterers! How seriously perfect!…

A sweaty, dirty morning, and I loved it. I weeded parts of the yard and then planted several planters of white flowers, as well as a few more pots of lettuces and herbs. Whew! I truly need my daily shower, ha. Nathan took one look at my dirt-encrusted hands and said, you are NOT making…

I talked Nathan into letting me make him pancakes for breakfast…I can’t believe a son of mine, or Carter’s (we’re both famous pancake eaters), doesn’t like pancakes, but there it is. He indulged me if I agreed to also make bacon – deal! So I made Susanna’s sister-in-law Anne’s Orange Yogurt Pancakes. I’ve had a…

Well. What a difference a day makes. Yesterday’s sweetly sunny breezes have been so rudely shoved aside by the meanest of bullies (for those of us with curly hair) – humidity, ack, in the form of dark, heavy stillness. Dank. Oppressive. It brings, I’ll admit, much-needed rain. OK. Then rain already and move on outta…

My aunt Mary, Stace, Bowen, and Coop are coming for dinner tonight – woo hoo! Mary’s here for a two-day conference so is spending the night. We’re all heading over to Nathan’s baseball game for a bit, then back here for sauteed artichokes with grilled bread, and cold, crispy radishes with smoked salt, followed by…

OK, I’m back, I’m here, I’m my normal self. Except I did need a 15-minute nap today (and yesterday). And now I feel extra great. Yes, it’s amazing (or not) what two good nights of sleep in a row can do for a grrrl, rrrarrrr, I’m ready to go. Sheesh. Two and 1/2 days to…

Experiencing some post-Manhattan, post-Minxing blues… Gosh, we had so much fun, and as great as it is to be home, it’s just not…vacation. You know? It’s pretty wonderful to be in the company of amazing women, who clean up as they go along, actively listen to anything you have to say, make you laugh constantly,…
