I love fall. I LOVE it. Especially when we actually get fall-like conditions, and not just, say, more rain. We’ve been having crisp days here in the northwest, with foggy mornings and sunny afternoons and lots of leaves crunching beneath our feet. In honor of that, I’ve been drinking copious amounts of tea and eating…

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and tried to figure out where I was. After I’d finally concluded it wasn’t a hotel I recognized, I realized, somewhat alarmed, that I was home. I didn’t recognize my own bedroom. Oy. Needless to say, we’ve been traveling a lot lately, and it’s…

I feel like the March Hare, running around in a frenzy – no time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late, I’m late, I’m late! The thing is, I’m not actually late to anything. I just feel like it, because I’m sitting here at my computer nine floors up, and all around me the city of…

It is going to be 80 degrees in the Pacific Northwest this weekend. EIGHTY FRIGGIN DEGREES. The weather is so nice that one school has cancelled class due to sunshine. No, I’m not even remotely kidding. I am getting out from behind my desk right this second, and heading out to enjoy the day (after…

I just got back to Seattle yesterday, after spending a week in Los Angeles with family – including my 9-month-old nephew. I have now have a suitcase full of clothes smeared with baby food and drool, and I’m completely exhausted. After a week. A friggin week. But people who become parents do this sort of…

Good heavens. It’s been a rough few days. I hope you are all well. I hope you are all safe, and warm, and that your loved ones are, too. Stuff remains crazy this morning, as it has been all week. I’ve tried to find some fun, pithy links to include in this roundup, but those…
