My Mudroom Is Finished!

January 6, 2014

There is always a project in progress up in here. For instance, we are in the planning stages of a new back deck. Not because we want a larger one, or a better one, rather, because the boards are rotting and I am fearful that one of us will end up in the back yard […]

The Street and The Sky

September 23, 2011

September 28, 2010

They appeared out of nowhere. Totally uninvited. They are dark. They are overbearing. And they would not under any circumstances, go away no matter how big a fit I threw and believe me if there’s one thing I know, it’s how to throw a fit. Throw it. Pitch it. Toss it. To really do a […]

What’s For Lunch, St. Pete?

August 10, 2010
