I burned a stack of arugula in offering to the weather gods last night – you should all thank me, at least here in Minneapolis, because apparently they were pleased and bestowed upon us once again a stunning day. Arugula is their favorite. None of this lamb or first-born son stuff. Arugula, baby. Sorry, a…

Lunch al fresco with Marge at the Good Earth today. Another glorious day here in Minnesota, as usual. Ha. Funny how easily arrogance settles in. No, I’m grateful, I’m grateful, I swear I’m grateful. I’m not attempting to tempt the weather gods, I’m no fool. I spent nine years of my life in Grand Forks,…

Big Birthday Month, April. Vivian (3rd), John (18th), my aunt Marge (19th), John’s bro Tom (20th), my friend Michelle (23rd), my cousin Michael and Nathan (29th). Wild! What with the Bat Mitzvah weekend, we haven’t done much birthday planning around here. Time to snap to it! Happily had ribs, cabbage salad, and cherry tart for…

A visit from Cooper and Stacey today! He did a fabulous job – slept, looked around, ate, cried (just a little), let Nathan, John, and me hold him. Baby heaven. Sighs, snorts, grunts, burps, farts – all of it is adorable. Stacey looks beautiful, of course, and is as happy as can be. Coop debuted…

Voila! I got a little cranky last night, needed some space, went downstairs and pounded nails, squatted down, stood up, climbed a chair, back down, over and over again, worked up a good sweat, had a huge creative rush, and…Finished. It. Off. DONE! Woo hoo! Looks pretty cool, huh? I told Susie and Kim, if…

Thank you, Suz, for helping me make appetizers today! Woo hoo for friends helping out! The time flew by, of course, as we chatted. Sullivan played by himself, he’s so adorable. We got them all done, what a nice way to wrap up one big item on my to-do list! We made – and froze…

What’s this? Progress? Yes, it’s true, I have finally completed the framing of the pics and even started hanging them today. I have a l..o..n..g way to go, in fact, I’ll probably have to stop here and put my attentions elsewhere to finish off the week, but I can legitimately say I made progress. I…

It is most definitely a soup day. Wet, chilly, dreary. Smells divine, however, I opened the front door and was hit in the face (nose) with the smell of spring, yummy. So I’m not making a heavy soup, but instead a recipe I think I made up last summer (or the summer before) and titled…

B..a..r..e..l..y got my ass out of bed this morning and to a yoga class. Like, I got up at 8:40 for an 8:45 a.m. class. Luckily it’s right by the house so I zoomed over and was actually sort of on time. It’s a nice way to wake up, yoga, reminds me of being at…
