I haven’t shared anything from my mother in awhile, so I thought today was as good a day as any for a little humor. Courtesy of my mother, who received this from my brother, I think. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out the source… but regardless, the importance of punctuation. And now that many of… Continue reading Sh*t My Mother Sends Me & So Much More!
Happy New Year!
When times are tough it’s helpful to find the humor in any and all situations. Of course it helps that I’m married to a man whose DNA revealed he descends from Vikings and his grandmother hailed from County Clare. I’m a German/Swiss/Mayflower descendant. I’ve decided the Swiss part cancels out at least some of the… Continue reading Pandemic Humor
With much of the country and world resorting to increasingly strident measures due to the pandemic’s unrelenting destruction, here are a few memes and other silliness to make you smile. Years ago my husband, who is constantly hoping to catch sight of a UFO, and believes he will some day, came across acronyms that introduced… Continue reading And Now For Some Humor…
Just about ten days ago New York City was enjoying a less than 1% infection rate. We are now at about 17.6 cases for every 100,000 people, which is still relatively small when compared to other parts of the country.

It was very last minute, and touch and go, as the internet began misbehaving the minute I tried to live stream, but in the end… Continue reading The Pandemic & Life
I don’t know about you but the interminability, the endlessness of this pandemic hits me in waves. For the most part I am able to brush it off, keep going, keep stitching, keep designing, but there are other times when it all just feels like a massive punch to the gut. When is this ever… Continue reading The Pandemic & the Things That Unite Us
New Yorkers are a resourceful group for the most part, but we are also impatient, easily distracted, and busy. We are very, very busy. Don’t ask us what’s our hurry, you’ll be met with a bleary-eyed scowl of contempt. Don’t believe me? Ever walked down a street in mid-town Manhattan in the middle of the… Continue reading #StayAtHome aka When Will it End & Other Musings
On yet another night of sleeplessness I decided it was high time I found out where the whole – count sheep and fall asleep – idea originated. Which, oddly, led me to the discovery of Goats Parkour and the fact that sea otters love to eat sea urchin, which, as facts go, is kind of… Continue reading Sleepless In New York City
I know today’s Thursday because I post a new blog Tuesdays and Thursdays, and also because I have my glasses on and my iWatch conveniently tells me that it’s Thu April 23rd. I also now know that it’s cloudy outside, and at this moment 42℉. Of course, one is putting a great deal of faith… Continue reading I’ve Lost All Track of Time & Other Thoughts During This Pandemic
