And….yeah, so, somehow I, the chocoholic, planned a JUICE FAST with Paul for the week-end of chocolate bunnies. I am stupid. It was because Paul had some time off from work and it seemed like that would be a good time to do it and I totally forgot about the [...]
The colors are changing. The forest is all over gold and sparkles. Time for walk!
Henry mentally prepares himself for the coming exertion:
Barking at squirrels!

We went to my grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving, over the river and through the woods—we used to sing that song when I was a kid and we were making the trip to her place. It’s the small town my father and two aunts grew up in, birth to high-velocity escape post high school. None of [...]

Beware. Something lurks in this leaf pile.
You can’t see it? Look closer.
And what is this? An altogether different type of leaf monster, not a Lurker, but a Churner….
The moment of peace, after the storm:
If it’s [...]
Every year our country neighbors do the most amazing, hilarious, shocking Halloween decorations ever, and I swear, every year I think, how can they possible do anything new, they’ve done everything, but they always pull it off, proving that I have a stunning lack of imagination for a fantasy novelist, I mean, for gods sake, [...]
Time for a walk through the forest, brought to you by the semi-annual downloading of pictures from my camera’s ginormous memory card. These walk photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, a late August summer walk, no goats this time just Sophie and Henry, me and my camera.
