Love Note from Meg

Enthusiasm 7/15/24

Enthusiasm 7/15/24 So much of life is just diving in.  Well, maybe not if you're hanging wallpaper.  But you know what I mean.   When I found myself newly divorced 14 years ago, I vowed that whenever a friend invited me for a visit - or to do just about anything, really - my reply would be, "Thank you so much, I would love to come!"  (And to all of you who invited me, bless you, and we did have some fun!)  READ  MORE

Shell yeah

Shell yeah How was your weekend?  Full of fresh watermelon and blueberries, I hope.  With the Fourth now fully in our rear view mirror, we are officially in the throes of summer.   Shell yeah (in this use, "yeah" is pronounced with a minimum of two syllables).   Remember last January, when we were DREAMING about sultry summer days like this?
