#75: Pluck

#75: Pluck

I’m a cheapskate at heart. I don’t like to pay for things that I can do myself, and most of the time, I don’t mind doing things myself. So, there you have it – right? Not so fast. When it comes to life’s smaller projects – painting a wall, for instance – no problem. Even […]

Stuff We’ve Tried: Garden and House Progress

Stuff We’ve Tried: Garden and House Progress

It’s my turn for a “Stuff We’ve Tried” post, and really, I’m just in the middle of several projects. To catch you up: First, I should probably go ahead and break the bad news to you about my garden. Our spring crops were a fail. One gardener told us that we hadn’t planted by the […]

#66: Enduring Friendships

#66: Enduring Friendships

I am so lucky. I found a handful of kindred-spirit friends in college and just after, and most of us live in the Atlanta area. Even though I certainly don’t get to see them as often as I’d like, it’s not impossible, and doesn’t require a major trip. Last week, some of these dear ones […]

Stuff We’ve Tried: Menu Planning

Stuff We’ve Tried: Menu Planning

One of the things I struggle with in this life of mine is deciding what four people are going to eat for every meal, day in and day out. I read a book once about a woman living in Paris after her children were grown, and she writes something like, “I can’t believe I had […]
