Country Life

Come back, Fogust! Both of my brain cells may have melted yesterday. I didn’t dare to consult the thermometer outside, but it was still 86 in my house when I […]

I’m sorry to report that high beams* season is already upon us, as the encroaching darkness starts its long slide into winter, when I will be driving in darkness both […]

Sunset Slipper

A week of fog lifted, and Megan and I decided it was a good time to go to the Ledford House again. Although it is conveniently located right across the […]

Our long-time friend Carrie came up to visit from Oakhampton, with her 15 year old daughter Miranda and Miranda’s posse of besties. I was pleased to learn that Carrie asked […]

It’s been a less than stellar week in SuzyWorld™. To be fair, I did bring some of it on myself*, like scheduling the masochistic extravaganza of a dental cleaning and […]

The Intruder

When I go to work in the morning, I leave the doors open, since I am not available to be the cat doorperson while I’m out making money to keep […]

Junapalooza III

Junapalooza arrived on the heels of a week-long heat wave. I was glad that the temperature for our outdoor celebration was relatively humane, though I also wore my County Fair […]

It was a wildlife extravaganza on my way to the jobette this morning. Bunnies seemed to having a convention, hopping around and across the Ridge before vanishing into the bushes […]

By the Sea

After work on Saturday, I met Megan at the Gro. I got there first, so I checked my mailbox, where I discovered some late-breaking birthday cards. Yay! I jumped into […]

Perfect Day (Part II)

We hopped back into Megan’s little red car and continued south on Highway One, past meadows of wildflowers dotted with cows, sheep, and horses, tall, rolling hills, tunnels of windswept […]

Perfect Day (Part 1)

The great lead up to the great day culminated in a perfect birthday. It dawned bright and shiny, as seen from my balcony: I Marilyned* my morning by lounging in […]

Birthday Week

Good mail day So far, I’m favorably impressed with the lead up to my birthday this year. I’ve enough bad birthdays lately ($400 vet bill; 12 hour work day followed […]

Megan's Birthday

If it’s Memorial Day weekend (and it is), I must be back at the jobette and it must be Megan’s birthday. I started working Saturdays again yesterday. The many people […]

Going In Style

I was chauffeured to the latest Predicta Party in the latest style. Erica and Jessica picked me up in their brand-new Hagmobile. It was quite wonderful to relax in style […]

Bookstore Day

It was a beautiful day to go to the bookstore, which is located right across from the street from the ocean. It has its own webcam, in case you want […]

If you think May is too late in the year for power outages, I agree with you. But we would both be wrong. Derby Day dawned bright and sunny, but […]

Margaret: It makes one feel so unstable, impermanent, with all the houses being torn down on all sides. Including, in the foreseeable future, ours. Ruth: Are you having to leave […]

Freedom Friday

A beautiful day on the coast One good thing about my current inability to sleep is that it gave me an extra long Freedom Friday last week. I had time […]

Sisters and Friends

The ballet season has ended, but the play season is just beginning. The stage is set Megan, our good friend Lu and I went to see a play at the […]

As winter (allegedly) comes to a close and (allegedly) makes way for spring*, so does the ballet season. Megan and I headed to the beautiful South Coast on a grey […]
