    My, how times have changed. Sometimes not for the better.
    I’m sitting here in the office, finishing up this column for the newspaper, wondering why there wasn’t school today in Harrison County and a dozen or so other counties in the region.
    I can’t speak to the other counties, but as for us, it doesn’t seem like the roads are too bad at all.
    I can only attribute our school closing to another weather forecast that didn’t quite live up to its expectations of impending disaster.

  • Grace Notes

    These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.
    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.
    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.
    We sat in the living room -- a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.
    We know law and we know order.

  • Late February ideal for pruning

    In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day. I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous; and one prompted the whole exercise:  I love warm February days.  
    This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend. It felt so good to get some good old-fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about.
    It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.
