Labor Day Monday

Labor Day Monday

Yesterday was Labor Day and I had a very low-key day. Delivered some baked goods, had breakfast out, went for a drive, intended to pick raspberries but then didn’t, intended to nap but then didn’t, intended to start a new knitting project and gave up…

Last August Monday

Last August Monday

It’s the last Monday in August and this hot summer isn’t done with us yet. There’s a heat advisory in the forecast for tomorrow and I’m showing you a picture of my most recent knitting project. Nope, no idea what is wrong with me. I’ve…

Monday Took a Break to the Adirondacks

Hopped over to the Adirondacks for a couple of nights to go for a hike in the woods, see a play, smell some pine needles, go for another hike – this time up a mountain, play with the dogs, take a couple of naps, eat…

Cake and Sewing

Cake and Sewing

My intention is that this post is about cake, specifically this great cake from Dorie Greenspan that was featured on the NYT Cooking site last week and that I just couldn’t resist trying. For starters, it is lemon and I do love most things lemon. It’s…
