Leather Pants Redux. Again and Again.
I have a small wardrobe. Made up of quality pieces I love, plus a few cheaper items which go so well with the quality pieces that I couldn't resist them. I regularly edit out what I know I'll not wear anymore, clothes that no longer fit my body or my lifest...

Kindness, Civility, and a Little Respect
It's January. For those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, that means winter. And for those of us who live in the north of the northern hemisphere, that means lots of darkness, and cold, and whatever precipitation our changing climate wants to throw...

Mystery Lovers Anonymous
Remember the good old days? When P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, Reginald Hill, or Colin Dexter published a new mystery novel, and you'd rush to the book store to buy it, or put yourself on a very long list at the library? Then once you had the book in your hot l...

Time for Change. And I'm Not Talking About My Hair.
You might already know this, but I think of my hair as a metaphor for my life. Seriously, I do.  Let me explain. Back when I was a little kid, my mum struggled with my long, thick hair. She scraped it back from my face, gathered it into a tight ponytail, cu...

Ski ou Après Ski
Hubby and I will be heading out for a few days of skiing in a week or two. Maybe. Hopefully. Fingers and toes crossed. We're not making firm plans because, well, snow. Or the lack of snow, more like it. Our January weather can be unpredictable; we may have ...

Merry Christmas, From Us
We've had some Christmas tree controversy in our house this year, folks. I've struggled trying to decide on a name for our tree.  It's an adorable little tree, perfectly round, and sweetly shaped. I initially decided to name him Boris.  "Boris?" my mum said...

Over the Backyard Fence: Musings on Friendship.
When I was a kid, my sister used to laugh at how much my friend Debbie and I talked on the phone. She was right; we were always on the phone. Through elementary school, and most of high school, we talked on the phone every afternoon, or evening, about what ...

Going Cold Turkey: Two Weeks Without Eye Make-up
It's highly ironic, I'd say, that just when I get my make-up professionally done, learn new tricks to help my aging skin look brighter, purchase a few new products and learn new ways to use the old ones, including eye shadow, I have my eye operated on and h...
