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

That Magical Feeling

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. I’d brought the radio into the family room so I could listen while I put the lights on the Christmas tree, which I’d picked up earlier that day, a Black Hills spruce this time around, and it’s a beauty. Problem was, I purchased the tree and secured ... Read More

The Big Celebration Has Begun

Listened to the show Saturday, and it was not bad. Was pretty much the highlight of the day, that and the walk I took along the county roads. Not that the day wasn’t good; it was. We ate up the rest of Thanksgiving’s leftovers, and played a few board games. Watched a movie contemplated hanging the ... Read More

Time to be a Light

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Felt pretty dang cozy in the house, with all the snow that came down last week. Happened fast, didn’t it. One day we’re walkin’ in the park wearing light jackets and tennis shoes, and a few days later — Boom! Snow everywhere. Though it’s not right to ... Read More

There’s Good Work to Be Done

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was coming from Duluth, one of my favorite places in the world. It’s a city of the wilderness, if you ask me, and all about lake and trees and occasional bears and deer roaming the streets. It’s a fine place to be in any season, and a place Mr. S ... Read More
