Country roads

TweetIt is indeed a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I took the Creature With Fangs for a long walk this morning, tunes courtesy of James Taylor and the Allman Brothers. I think it is time to rename the dog. She has stopped chomping and nipping those she loves best. She is massive… 8 months old […]

Peaceful, easy feeling

TweetSalutations and greetings from Mexico, NY! The apple blossoms are just fading and lilacs are bursting everywhere. I worked for a while on the end of the troublesome barbeque scene in the new book; still not happy with it. We took a trip to Oswego (nearest big town) and tried to introduce Kezzie, our Creature […]

Coolest prom story ever

TweetI’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. Proms rock. Everybody needs to dance. Check it out. (If the link above doesn’t work, I’ll cut and paste the article tonight. Right now I’m getting in the car and heading north!!) Many thanks to Greg for tipping me off to the story. Have fun at Disney, […]

Errand Day

TweetUsually I hate errand days, but today wasn’t so bad. I got to have lunch with Mer, and I got caught up on a long list of small, annoying to-dos. Didn’t write anything or get to the gym, but I guess you can’t have everything. Most of the Anderson-Kressley clan heads to Disney World tomorrow, […]

Star Wars?

TweetIn July, 1977, I was sitting in the front row at a movie theater (with a date who shall remain nameless) in the old Fayetteville Mall multiplex in Fayetteville, NY. I was 15. As we settled in with our popcorn, I was a little nervous about my date. He had roving octopus hands. A nice […]

Prom joy

TweetFinally, a prom entry not related to my book! Mer’s Prom was last night. I’ve only heard brief details, but it sounds like it was great. They had more than 500 people! After the prom, Mer and her buddies went bowling, then they crashed at a friend’s house. Now they are on their way to […]

Emptying the mail bag

TweetIt is raining here, first time in 20 days. It is raining because tonight is prom. It is supposed to clear up by the time the photo ops are scheduled (6ish). Here’s hoping everybody has a blast tonight! Since I grew up in Central New York, rainy days are my second-favorite (what I really love […]

Tears at the end of motherhood

TweetI’m not even sure if I’m going to post this, but I have tears streaming down my face, and that is usually a good time to start writing. I am the mother of very fine daughters and now they are grown. Meredith’s band/chorus concert was lovely. I sat with friends which made it extra nice. […]

You should write too

TweetNo traffic yesterday, just words, and some fine mashed potatoes I made for dinner. Many thanks for all the music suggestions. I will be dipping into iTunes this weekend trying them all out. I wrote a lot in the library yesterday. It’s proving harder than usual to write at the apartment because where ever I […]
