One Thing at a Time

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Had just pulled in from one of five college trips this week, the first, and it was iced tea and the show with all the windows open, just for a while. So much is happening this spring I’m finding a moment here and there of nothing, complete with ... Read More

The Last One to Fly Away

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was just our youngest daughter and me — everyone else was either in college or out doing motivational talks — and we made the best of the day. The surprise came when she suggested we go out for dinner. Not take-out, which we love, but OUT. To the ... Read More

Something Good Will Come

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’ve been hungry for bacon lately, craving it really, and cooked up two pounds of it during the show. By the time it was all said and done, Mr. S and I had a lovely meal of BLTs and some broccoli salad with bacon and a plate of lemon brownies which ... Read More

A Hush in the Air

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Was pure quiet in the house, and I made some blueberry banana bread, and there was, for a while, only the show and the hum of the fridge, and me. Evenings seem all about quiet these past few days. There’s a hush in the air, full of a contentment that ... Read More

The Swirl of Springtime

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I spent the evening in the kitchen, all about ham and corn casserole and whether or not to do potatoes (did, mashed, with pork gravy) and thought about how hot cross buns are good, hot and fresh, but a bit overrated after a day or two on the counter. ...

Thank Goodness for Faith

Listened to the show Saturday, and it was not bad. Been a solid few weeks, I say. That visit to the Caribbean seems like a dream now. Funny — at the time I took those few photos, I was random and nonchalant, and now when I look at them, they bring those days to life.  I’m not dwelling, though, mind ... Read More

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
