Ahhh, home sweet home, baby. As lovely as it is to be away, especially in a place as insanely gorgeous and idyllic as the Hamptons, it is great to be settled at home, too. Here I am, unpacked (yes, I am unpacked, I who loathes major-buzzkill-downer-vacation-is-over-unpacking, I just bit the bullet and did the dirty…

Hello from East Hampton! We’re having a lovely vacation with my in-laws (Dot & John) this week, away from the rain and gloom in Minnesota. The drought is officially over, eh? Sheesh. It was raining here, too, when we arrived (on Tuesday). But the sun peeked through last evening and is shining still (at least…

I think it takes a drought to fully appreciate a fabulously dark, chilly, rainy weekend like this has been. Oooh, so cozy, truly. I’ve made brunch twice – TWICE! – for John and me (I hardly ever make brunch). Yesterday I made little pizzas, topped with a bit of bacon, fresh rosemary, fresh tomato, garlic,…

Glorious day, eh? Wow, spectacular. What a difference a break in the humidity makes – the air positively sparkles in this late-summer sun. Saucy Suz and her kids, Vivian and Sullivan, came over for a lovely swim today, and we just soaked it all in, knowing – and feeling, for the first time – that…

Mya-man, mya-man! That’s Cooper-speak for Spider-Man, whom thanks to Nathan, Cooper now loves. Stace and Nathan donned expired Halloween costume masks for maximum Spideyness, leaving Cooper alternately excited, confused, and a little scared (as you can see in the pic). Mya-man! Cooper calls me Ne-uh-nee, totally adorable. For the longest time there was only Mama,…

Here’s a good day – Tuesday Morning Coffee with Suz (Kim’s in China, lucky girl; we’ll snag her next week) and Tuesday Afternoon Hangin’ with Nathan (my son, not in a camp this week for the first time this whole summer; he’s been BUSY!). It’s again been waaaay too long since I could sip and…

Well, John and I ended up going for a drive yesterday, a mini-day trip. We love going for beautiful drives, it’s “our” thing, so yesterday we chose to head south, along the gorgeous St. Croix River Valley down to the Lake Pepin area. We drove down Minnesota Hwy 61 and back up Wisconsin Hwy 35,…

Whoa, that was a hell of a gust of wind… That’s what both John and I were simultaneously thinking as we shot awake last night, around 3:00 a.m., as lightning flashed almost continuously and sheets of rain slammed the windows. You see, we were both fully aware of – and freaking out about – the…

Hey! Almost the end of Thursday, thought I’d sneak in a quick post. Fun, fun dinner tonight with Bill & Karla, Joe & Genie, and Stu (The Wine Genius) & Debbie here a the hacienda. Summer casual, as in very, sticking to the menu I outlined yesterday except I baked a Summer Fruit Upside Down…

After Saturday’s Date Day and Monday’s Date Night, we’ve had a couple of days of very simple, low-key eating (and tough, tough walks and bike rides in this heat, makes me feel like I’ve hit a brick wall, ugh). Moderation, you know, ha – woo hoo! Mostly salads, although tonight I made a simple, garlicky,…
