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

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
