I did good, cont. again

…Part Three in a three-part series… In the normal state of affairs, I would have blogged in great detail about this whole thing, because I’m incredibly wonky about process and I would have loved to share every excruciating detail about How I Did It, but in this case there were hippie-feelings involved.  Just posting the […]

I did good

You may have noticed, in my gargantuan list of activities from yesterday, that a great many of them had to do with Alchemy, our fall regional Burning Man-style gathering.  Here’s what happened. Last spring, we were on new property over in the Great Eastern Wastelands of Georgia and were thinking we had found a new, […]

Oldie but goodie

Again, on Facebook… I’ve actually blogged about this before… A snark (originally posted 04/27/2007) This email arrived in my box at school this morning: I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped […]

Sir Christémas: so far, so good

I had pulled together several texts last night which I found on The Hymns and Carols of Christmas, a pretty exhaustive site. If you’d like to second guess me (other than the hundreds I didn’t even look at), here’s a list: http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/a_a_a_a_nunc_gaudet_maria.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/child_divine.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/little_children_wake_and_listen.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sir_christmas.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/wrapt_in_the_silence_of_the_nigh.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/yule_days.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sleep_my_little_jesus.htm I really liked the Yule Days one, […]

Here we go again.

Long-time readers of this blog will remember the Great Cross Country trip from four years ago (!) and the Great Southwestern Woo Exploration from two years ago.  Tonight we shall set off on yet another adventure, this time to my beloved homeland of Hofvonstein. Actually, it’s a Viking River Cruise—yes, just like on Downton Abbey—from […]

Garden update

You will recall that we left the front garden a little bare, though tilled: Finally the big order from The Growers Exchange arrived, Friday afternoon.  This was a bit problematic, since once one unboxes these plants, one is supposed to let them sit out of direct sun for a day or two before planting them, […]

Garden!

You know how it is.  The front garden is getting ratty-looking and as a gift for Christmas you give your Lovely  First Wife a complete revamp of the area. And then you get an email from The Growers Exchange offering 25% off an order for native cultivars, and then you see some interesting-looking herbs that […]
