December in New Jersey. Day 6. The Winter Solstice is quickly approaching and it's only getting colder outside. I've heard reports that other portions of the state have had snow already, however I have not. Spring time seems to be an eternity away and all I can do is wait. I'm still freezing. But I'm coping. Perhaps anyone who finds this journal will be able to find it helpful with their survival. ...more
I feel like I should be doing much more writing than this...all of a sudden life has happened and things are being cast aside. Things like time to write and laundry.Travel wise I/we have been all over the place lately. There was a three day break up to the highlands, Inverness/Nairn/other places I can't pronounce. We saw the Falls of Shin...which weren't very...fall-ie...but still pretty. I think living in the Rocky Mountains for *insert FAR TOO LONG* kind of skewed my perception of waterfalls. And mountains....more
With Thanksgiving just one day away, some of you may still be looking for one more side dish, or one more dessert. Or maybe you just want something different and unusual.

Once upon a time, I lived in Fargo, ND, that cold, windy, desolate place with an Academy Award winning movie named after it. Tom’s first job out of college took us to this unthinkably isolated part of the country. I remember the day he received the phone call informing us where we would be moving. We were hoping for St. Louis, or Savannah, GA. But I remember him nodding while on the phone and when he said, “And what exactlyis in Fargo?” I about poo-pooed my panties. Fargo?...more
We all have at least heard something regarding the endless debates over the past couple of years, that have been centered around baby vaccinations. As a new parent, I tried to read up on as much information that I could, and also spoke to some of our friends in the medical field to make up my mind about having my son receive all of his vaccinations....more
Well, I am back from a long and tedious drive to New Mexco, and I must say it wasn't until our second day there (when we visited the pueblos) that I found an appreciation to this 'further southwest' state. The native american people were ever gracious to my husband and I as we toured the pueblos. There was one particular young boy of 7-8, who was especially impressive to me. The natives that lived in these pueblos were preparing for their annual 'Harvest Festival' by setting up stands to sell their talented handy work via chili pepper crosses, wreaths, jewelry, etc... ...more
