When I was little, there was a family down the street that had basset hounds. We always had hounds because my dad was a hunter, but we never had a basset hound. We would drive by their house and the dogs would be just hanging out in their driveway. I always loved them and dreamed … Continue reading Wonder Dogs
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.

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.

I want to share this photo I took the other day from the end of my driveway. That red barn has horse stalls in it. The wood … Continue reading Red Barn
Some days when I sit down at the end of the day to write here, I think, What the heck am I doing? And I think, This is kind of weird, Pam. You're telling people you don't know lots of personal stuff. Do they really want to hear about what you do on a daily … Continue reading Possibility
In the North Country of New Hampshire, when it hits above 40 degrees after a long cold winter, it's officially spring. People were out walking. People were driving with their windows down. I think if the ice cream shop was open today, you would have seen people lined up for a cone. I went to … Continue reading Saturday, March 20, 2021
I"m in New Hampshire for a few days by myself. Christian is in Massachusetts with the boys. We have a new old home here in New Hampshire. We found our new old home last fall.
