It's the tulip time of year and today as I was driving I saw so many sweet and perfect tulips. My favorite were the beds in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. I was able to snap a photo. I spent the day updating signage for the farm. They're opening up this weekend for ice cream for … Continue reading Tulips
Today I made such a yummy lunch. Arugula salad with fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, parmesan cheese, fresh ground pepper. Avocado with everything bagel seasoning. A sweet potato and black bean salad with lime and cilantro and onion. My plate was full with all these yummy veggies. I feel so good when I eat … Continue reading I love cookies.
The boys are back in school after vacation. Christian is away for work. The house was very quiet today. Lot's of running the kids around after school. That's pretty normal for this time of year. It's just that it feels like a shock to the system after this past year of slowing down. The 80's … Continue reading Purple Ball
We went out on a little family shopping trip to the mall today. New sneakers for Wes and Charlie. A young guy working in the hip sneaker shop told me he liked my sneakers. He said he hadn't seen any like those. I'm pretty sure unique is cool in the world of sneakers. Afterwards, I … Continue reading Leading lady
There is something about a beautiful spring day, isn't there? It feels like possibility. Wes had baseball practice this morning so I took the opportunity to visit the library. I got to say hi to my friend, who just happens to be our town's youth services librarian. And then I walked down into town for … Continue reading Spring day.

The old wood has to come out to make room for the new wood to dry out. We didn't burn as much wood … Continue reading Downs and Ups
After a good nights sleep, I woke up with a new perspective. I told myself, Pam, you don't have to do anything you don't want to do. And then I thought about that. I don't have to write a blog post, I don't have to do my morning pages. I don't have to be good. … Continue reading A new day.
I'm taking the night off. Here are some good words written by someone who is not me. “Too many of us move through our lives with our true selves buried below layers of repressed emotion. With so much energy channeled toward sustaining the repression, there is little left over for the deeper questions. The consequences … Continue reading Church
I've been thinking about this blog and my patterns with writing for it. I always write at the end of the day. My days start early, between 4 and 5 a.m. and I typically sit down to write at 7:00 p.m. My brain is tired. I've noticed I am more free and open with what … Continue reading Kind lady.
Christian has been watching The Great Pottery Throwdown. I think he's finishing up season 2 now. He is very committed to this show. Tonight he said he'd like to make a coffee mug, but he doesn't drink coffee. In fact, he very rarely drinks any kind of hot drink. I've watched a few of the … Continue reading Beauty
