  1. Aaaaasaand... my daughter got into her dream college, my mother found her dream retirement home (which seemed an impossible task - a 1900s semi-private retirement village close to her daughters). Our sheep are all being reunited in one farm that’s not ours. That means we’re getting rid of the sheep . We are in the throes of buying a new house and selling our old. We’re currently half vaccinated. So... not much going on.....
  2. Aaaand I just bought a Mulberry clutch bag. I can write that here because no one cares. My friends would post it in “Insta ”. I can’t even believe I did it. I just felt sorry for myself because I can’t get a camel hair coat in my size. The only place that has what I want (OConnels) has it in size huge. So. I’ll console myself with a tweed with a black velvet color ... even though I’ll feel like I’m 10 again. . But I can’t really just buy it. Maybe I want a solid color? And now I also want a black velvet box clutch. And I’m going to need shoes for going back to work. And I want a new
  3. We have to clean out my dad’s 1997 Suburban. I think I’ll make my husband. My dad paid cash for it back in the day and until 2 years ago maintained it impeccably. I remember he put in a new transmission probably 10 years back and we were all so grumpy. Just buy a new freaking car!!! But he loved it he splurged for it (he paid cash for it, like his parents always did back when one could!) because he said it was probably the last car he’d own ( my dad thought he was a goner at 56 he was psyched to have made it to 61 back then! Who knew? He just was a massive party animal and thought he was goi
  4. Nothin too new. My mother is moving down here. Found a fabulous old fashioned place in Newtown PA. We were going to buy a bigger house and shed move in with us but this will be better. She can walk all over Newtown and not be stuck on a farm in the boondocks So we found all my dads old fishing stuff. Two tackle boxes of Creek Chub lures from the 1940s. I’ll keep a few and frame them with an adorable photo I have of him fishing as a kid. The rest well sell on eBay and all go out fit a cute dinner somewhere fancy when my mom is all moved in. im amusing myself shoveling snow recreationally.
  5. In the Late Season by Tom Hennen At the soft place in the snowbank Warmed to dripping by the sun There is the smell of water. On the western wind the hint of glacier. A cottonwood tree warmed by the same sun On the same day, My back against its rough bark Same west wind mild in my face. A piece of spring Pierced me with love for this empty place Where a prairie creek runs Under its cover of clear ice And the sound it makes, Mysterious as a heartbeat, New as a lamb. I subscribe to the writers almanac podcast .
  6. Lil Peep. ??? Im all happy my daughter’s current boyfriend likes the Devils. He’s wearing a Devils sweater. Then I am informed ... oh no, he’s not a fan of hockey even. He just likes Lil Peep. Lil peep is apparently a “sad boy” who sings about how much girls break his heart ... sounds kinda candy as to me... I think I’d go with azz for cuss word replacement rather than as.
  7. Watching the Islanders playing the Hartford Whalers at The old Colosseum. My first live hockey game! I think I was 9!
  8. Well. Eventful summer/autumn. My dad had been in home hospice since July (yeah, he’s not any more and yeah that means what you’d guess if you were not guessing miracle recovery ). ANYHOW. My dad was a big guy! It was impossible!! But we managed. Even skin and bones he looked pretty strapping even at 84!! Weirdly enough my dad’s oncologist turned out to be a grad school chum of my husband. She tried to talk us out of it even. “Your dad is not a small man and your mom is tiny”. But it’ the time of COVID and we’re a really close family so ... it was pretty amazing in the end. My dad has been
  9. Sad. One of my puck bunny friends had a website dedicated to Dale Howerchuk. Very sad he died. He always seemed so old to me but he wasn’t even 60 yet. Bummer. Hate to say anything trite. Hate to ever say RIP. I hate the idea of resting in peace for eternity. I’d rather rest in discovery or joy and love or something active productive and fun. May Ducky have whatever idyllic after life he’s hoped for.
  10. Got rid of our ages ago. Sometimes I miss it. It makes it tough to punish your kid by taking the phone away , that’s for sure. If we had that phone cableTV and internet thing we’d have kept the land line. Don’t really miss it though
  11. A Stevens dream! It was a cute old school one .. but I forget it completely! It was cute. We were talking - like catching up? Old friends? Can’t believe I don’t remember it. Packing! Packing for a trip and chitchatting. Kind of like sharing old stories while we packed for the trip. Hmm. No details I usually remember the conversation but I don’t. Or it was just dream hum of conversation- you know how that is. (No.No, once again, as usual, we have no idea how that is Pepperkorn). So that was pleasant.
  12. Awe Dew. That sucks. My sister is alone but she has a cat and her doggie. Just hang in there friend.
  13. Ahhhhhhhhhhahahahahhahaha! My friend is on Fox News pushing a new COVID drug. LOL. Just got a text to turn it on. He’s a sheep expert turned pharmaceutical expert. LOL. They’re saying how great he is. He once got us all so plastered on single malts. Anyhow he promised if we honestly wanted to relocate to the UK he’d set us up with work BUT refuses to believe we actually do. He’s a great guy. Hope this works out but honestly everyone I know is working on their own COVID drug now and of course their idea is going to work. This guy really does think outside of the box though. we’ll see c
  14. Man. I can’t stand that I’m so digging isolating. I love not having to go anywhere. I can screw around doing all my little chores. OH!!! Of course you all know!! I think my nick name was Little House on The Prairie for a time here. I’m not spinning wool or churning butter. But I am making clotted cream right now. I of course can make a fine loaf of bread with 1/8th of a teaspoon of yeast and 2 1/2 cups of flour. I’m not sewing because everyone else and his brother already is. And I hate it. Same reason I’m not knitting. Our dogs are so insanely happy to have us here. I saved my R
  15. Oh man I am COVID-19 drunk AF!!!!!!!!!!! dear lord. Thank god I didn’t post whatever that mess I had down here was. Even I have no f&$%~£¥ idea what the hellI was even starting to get at. ?????? so. Yes. Totally ripped last night! Dark & Stormies. 150proof rum. My husband went online video hosted shopping at his favorite store in CT. ... he bought a bow tie with pointer dogs on it. Whimsical wedding attire? Lord knows. Anyhow. Here’s the thing. We were up at 6:30 AM. No hangover. And blowing a horn-in-a-can to get our daughter out of bed to help with the sheep.
