I did it. For the first time in 29 years I called for re-enforcements. I enlisted the help of a housekeeper. I waved the white flag and somehow managed to convince my husband that we were past the point of no return. We both work long hours. We have two beagles who shed their body weight in fur daily. I am a collector and he is a saver. We are pilers(mail, magazines, clothes). He cooks and I don't clean. We are the perfect case for people who need a housekeeper. 

Sometimes you just want to live beautifully and having a clean slate allows for more thinking, more making, more doing. Looking forward to longer days and a slower pace so I can recharge my creative engines. 


hi honey...


“Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot. Sweet vapors rise from the earth. Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another. Bees are already at work."... William Longgood

honey is a sweet compliment to rustic, earthy homemade beer bread.
