The finish line: a new-to-me camper-van of slightly larger size and easier maintenance.
At the starting line: Agency Work along side Writing & Art Business. Continue reading And The Race is ON
Sometimes an egg sandwich is just what the doctor ordered.
I’m sitting here late on Thursday putting to bed another Big Week and trying to wring words from an overly stimulated mind.

Am I preaching to the choir when I talk about how wonderful it is to find a place of humid green and scented color in the middle of a mid-northern winter?
As we head into February, I thought I’d show you what this second month of winter looks like under glass, in St. Paul, Minnesota. Continue reading Time Travel for the Seasonally Impaired
Well, enough people have asked after this recipe, that it merits a pub. I made these Baked Alaska bites for a finger-food party. I’m glad I took pictures. For a good turn out, give yourself enough time (at least four days in my case) and a spacious, cold freezer. A cool room to work in would be bonus. Continue reading Flaming Igloos, the recipe

I’m enjoying the weather so I haven’t been paying attention to much beyond the blue sky. To my right, across a deep, front yard, I notice this woman focused on opening her front storm door. I keep walking Continue reading No Matter What, part 1
Last Monday I walked into my old co-op for groceries and in addition to filling out my list I was gifted a bounty of veggies and fruits.
This is all cull. Continue reading Pepper Jelly and Applesauce
So many new things this month. The image to the right is my view while I write.
You know all that stuff I wrote in October about not being that good at designing web pages? Well, heh, I’ve got a couple web clients and one of them needs a redesign of their look and feel. I’ll be working from existing artwork and I’m feeling pretty good about that, so I think I’m well placed to give it another go. I’ve found myself some good design resources, a cool mentor and a few neat Meet-Up groups.
Web dev business started – Check. Continue reading Station Report
