Petrichor

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’d just gotten in from a rather turbulent plane ride from Ft. Lauderdale, and my head was spinning as I waited for my bag to come ‘round the carousel. Once I had it, I made my way outside where Mr. S and our youngest were waiting to pick me up. And ...

A Postcard from Mrs. Sundberg, Part 2

Listened to the show Saturday, and it was not bad. Wasn’t THE show as I know it, but it was. I attended the Sail-away Party, Sea View Pool Lido Aft, where wine and pink drinks were served and Mr. Keillor led us all in a sing-a-long — “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” and “Roll Out the Barrel” ...

A Postcard from Mrs. Sundberg

Getting ready to embark upon a sea voyage, and a bit tired from the journey to Florida. Don’t get me wrong — I love to travel, but I confess there are moments when I miss my kitchen. And my own bathroom. I had a thought yesterday while holding on for dear life in the airplane restroom that, were I ... Read More

What’s Inside

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. We’re rounding the curve of winter into spring and the weekend was all about cold and snow in the forecast and thoughts of spreading some salt on the walk. Instead I made a lemon meringue pie and took a walk through the woods with Mr. S and did a bit ... Read More

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
