Follow Your Cravings

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’d just gotten in from the grocery store when the show came on, and I spent a good part of the first half putting away groceries. Nothing to complain about; I was in the kitchen, I was warm, had the house to myself, and the pure joy of groceries ... Read More

Let Go Or Be Dragged

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was Valentine’s Day, and a lovely day. Cold outside, and the sun came out awhile, and I spent much of the day cleaning and thinking about what I might give up for Lent and wishing we would have a sudden immense Sky Dump of snow for a day or three ...

Things Which Must Be Done

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Not bad at all. There was a guest host, a Mr. Thile, and I enjoyed his voice and such, and I think he did a fine job. I did miss Mr. Keillor’s voice, I will say, but that’s pretty much a given, and frankly I’m glad he has a bit of a break from the ... Read More

It Takes Time To Heal

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Not at all bad, with John Fullbright to boot, singin’ his heart out and makin’ mine ache. He played this song titled, “When You’re Here”: And in my heart, stands a scarecrow, and if he’s hurt he doesn’t say so, and he chases everything he loves away. ... Read More

It All Adds Up

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’ve been enjoying not having to clear snow daily, and this has given me a bit of time to catch up on inside things. You know. Taxes, scholarship forms, college applications, bills, laundry and a new recipe here and there. All important, but nothing ... Read More

A Sweet Luxury

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’d spent the afternoon reading up on flu cures, and I must say that other than Tamiflu, if you can get to it in time, there isn’t much out there. I don’t have the flu, but it seems to be quite virulent and it may come this way one of these days and ... Read More

Life Chooses for Us

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. The kitchen was the warmest room in the house, and that’s pretty much where I spent the evening, putting together a pan of lasagna and baking up some chocolate cherry cake during the show.  Just as Garrison signed off and I slipped in a CD of ...

Growing Old Isn’t Awful

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It’s been a busy time and things are winding down and listening to the show is just the thing on a Saturday after the New Year begins. The two older kids are still home from college — one going back early, wanting to get things going for her final ... Read More

What Was, What Might Be

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I was cleaning up after a family Christmas party, a bit tired and nostalgic and quite happy with how the day went. It always starts out organized, with a clean table cloth and a pile of gifts under the tree and full bowls of dips and salads, trays of ... Read More
