The Sunday Post: It’s May

It’s May 1 and a beautiful day. I’ve been for a walk with S and he’s now sitting out on my front deck, captivated by a Harlan Coben novel. I lent him the couple of hardbacks I still have and he’s already finished the first and is onto the second. It’s very easy to sink…

The Sunday Post: Brunch

It’s the calm before the storm. That time soon before your guests arrive. You look in the fridge, wondering if you’ve forgotten something. (Like that time we left a whole tray of cocktail shrimp in there and only found it as we were putting things away.) The table is set, the oven’s warming up. You’re…

The Sunday Post: The Bright Side

I awoke this morning to the ping of a message on my phone letting me know the power was out in my neighborhood and was most likely out in my condo. I guess if I’d been awake I would have figured that out for myself already, but after a quick check to my bedside lamp,…

The Sunday Post: 5 Things

A recent #Bloganuary prompt was to list five things I’m grateful for today. Unless you’re a new reader on this blog, you know that this is a topic I’ve written about quite a bit in the last year and a half, so this is not a hard topic and one I find easy to write…

The Sunday Post: Getting Closer

This was the perfect weekend to bake. The forecast called for winter weather, including snow, which doesn’t happen very often in South Carolina. Because of that, I didn’t bring with me my snow boots or my car’s winter weather kit (including snow and ice scrapers) when I moved here in 2020. So what else is…

The Sunday Post: Laughter

That’s what I want more of this year. Last night we watched a movie, make that two movies, before going to bed, and I was laughing a lot. I wasn’t just laughing at the movies (the first one was not a comedy, after all), but simply because I was happy, and S was making me…

The Sunday Post: Boston

As promised, here are some of my favorite shots from last weekend’s getaway trip to Boston. It was a pretty relaxing visit with no big agenda other than a few places I’d pinned in my Google Maps as possible destinations. Turns out most of them were pretty close to our hotel. The first day was…

The Sunday Post: The Dance

How do you go all-in in a new relationship without feeling like you’re rushing into anything, moving too fast, or maybe more accurately, without coming on too strong? In Friday’s music post I mentioned that I’m trying to find the right balance. Last year when I decided I was ready to start dating my friends…

The Sunday Post: Checking them Off

I’ve been busy the last several months getting caught up in preventive maintenance of the medical variety. Over the last few years I kept up with a few of these to-dos, but I also put some off. I started off with an eye exam this spring and got new glasses for my new prescription. When…
