Deerly Beloved

Driving down the Ridge one morning this week, I saw a young deer dash across the road. It looked like the car may have hit the deer. I stopped, thinking of the “Never Just One” theory, and although another deer didn’t appear, a dog did. He went to investigate in the bushes where the deer […]

Fairy Godmother

I came home from a long day at work (is there any other kind?) to find that the Bowflex fairy had stopped by my house: The BF had thoughtfully adorned the machine with a sparkly purple bow, so you know who it was: Erica, who knows my love of all things sparkly. I was delighted […]

I’m not sure if the overcast skies over the last few days are because of fog or the wildfires raging in the next county: The last I heard, there were 50,000 acres burning. Highways, including the one I took to Reno a couple of years ago, are closed, and thousands have been evacuated. It reminded […]
