  • Notes on being a neurotic mess

    My daughter and granddaughter were on that flight from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine-hour, 14-minute flight that, except for bathroom breaks, I tracked on my computer to make sure they got there safely.

    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, I noticed that the plane icon on my computer faced east instead of west.

  • Preparing the garden for April showers

A garden is nothing without a good foundation, making it extra important to choose the correct site.
