August Break #3 (handwriting) and #4 (sweetness)

Handwriting The photo I posted on Instagram was of a postcard that Avi, my grandfather (Mom’s dad) sent to me and Sandy in 1976. He had very elegant handwriting. He dotted his i’s with open circles. My mother is constantly befuddled by how small my handwriting is. It is small, and, admittedly, hard to read….

August Break #1: morning light

My bedroom window faces east. That means if I forget to close my blinds at night, the early morning sunshine streams brilliantly into my room. The head of my bed is right under the window. In the summer, I keep the windows open a bit so I can catch the cool night and dawn air,…

I recently started watching a couple different TV shows that I am really enjoying. Since they might not be on people’s radar, I wanted to fill you in. We Are Lady Parts This show…

Coffee

As an extra gift for my birthday, aside from surprising me with her actual presence, my sister bought me a coffeemaker. You see, when we were in Costa Rica, we drank coffee every morning. That wasn’t that new for me. I tend to favor mochas, but I’ve had plenty of brewed coffee. I just didn’t…
