Haute Mamas

A Rotary Youth Exchange Blazer Story

The day had arrived. The day I was looking forward to and dreading all at the same time. I was in charge of one of the big suitcases and the rolling carry-on while she wheeled the other big suitcase and shouldered her overstuffed backpack. We followed the signs to Lufthansa and entered the … more

Let's Get Dirty

Finally… tomatoes!

Like a lot of gardeners out there, I don’t consider my garden a success until and unless I get tomatoes. Big, ripe, sweet juicy tomatoes. This year has been a tough year for tomatoes, and I’ve got some late varieties that are slow getting to the party. This one is a very late … more

Penny Pinchers

Confessions from a Previous Life, Part #1

In a previous life I did NOT in any way shape or form pinch pennies.  I spent money like it was going out of style.  I wasn't super in debt or anything, but I was in a different set of life circumstanes and chose to do quite a bit of unnecessary shopping.  That whole thing … more

The Outdoor Junkie

A Stay at the Milky Way Motel

I didn't think it was going to happen this summer, as weather scuppered one trip and running plans and busy schedules took care of most weekends. But the night after the Power of Four 22k Trail Race, which I rather surprisingly and incredibly won (!), I decided I had enough of … more
