Weekend Things

Whew,  this week has been a roller coaster.   The book is finally – FINALLY! –  done.  I quite happily spent a large amount of time making new proposals for the cover (I am soooo much happier with the new version to come! – I’ll share it next week once it is final).  Despite being…

Weekend Things

I hope you’ve had a great weekend.  Mine was nice, even if it was completely taken over by an elementary school production of Mulan.  We’ve had 4 shows since Friday night and I am just tired.  I’ve done a lot of makeup, handed out programs, stack and un-stacked chairs, and pushed around a ton of…

Weekend Things

Spring has sprung and thought quite a bit snow remains here in Massachusetts, I got some pruning in yesterday. Are you in the garden yet?  There is so much to do – I even have some green things – albeit weeds – but it is encouraging.  I managed to scratch my cornea with the tip of…

Weekend Things

I hope you have all had a great weekend. I hear the weather has started to warm in most places.  I couldn’t tell you as I spent most of the weekend insides sitting in the chair that I work in, editing my book.  I’ve got 3 more days to turn this whole thing around and…

Weekend Things

I am sorry to be getting this up late, but I have been stumbling around trying to sort out all the things that have to be done between this Tuesday and the following Wednesday and so that I can get them done early. I’ve been put on notice that a package will arrive on Tuesday…

Weekend Things

I’ve had a lot of new and exciting things going on this week.  I’ve been working on a trailer for my book.  Reverse engineering shots that I like and trying to find just the right outfits and props and all of it has been new and fun.  (I might have to do more of this…

Weekend Things

  If you didn’t see my Apartment Therapy post about the inspiration for my table top garden, then you might have missed Rad Megan’s table top water garden.   I can’t get it off my mind….totally obesessed.  Can we all agree that this should become a trend, therefore (hopefully) causing my local garden centers to…

Weekend Things is now Open Tabs

Do you know why I started blogging back in 2008?  It wasn’t to meet kindred souls or to practice writing or to experiment with ideas and personal challenges (as it often is now).  Nah, I saw a blog as a fantastic technology tool to get myself better organized.  I frequently chronicled links to products and…

Weekend Things: Lists

I am desperate for a few systems and instead of getting more into apps on my phone, I’ve decided to go back to old ways. I miss the days when I felt productive and organized with my crumpled  ‘to do’ list folded up on a sheet of paper in my pocket.  Every couple of days…

Pineberries & Weekend Things

Have you had pineberries?  The are funky albino versions of strawberries that apparently taste like they have been crossed with pineapple (doesn’t that sound like a great smoothie ingredient?)  Last year they made their debut in NYC specialty markets and this year they are moving beyond.  You can get pineberry plants info, including where to get seedlings and seeds, here.  I’m…
