Update from the sickbed


Me in more robust times

Hey there ladies; I’m just popping my head up long enough to say that as it turns out, I’m pretty ill, and that you should, with any luck at all, expect me back in this space Monday morning, bright and early. Thanks for your patience as I recuperate, and here’s my question for the day: I turn 55 on Sunday, and am experiencing the usual round of mixed emotions that lately hits near birthdays. So tell me: from your perspective, what are the great things about getting older? Also, here’s a fun little interview with me from the excellent newsletter for certain-aged ladies, The Woolfer.

Notes from the sickbed


Apologies for no post today: out of nowhere I’ve caught an awful cold, and I feel enfeebled, weak as a kitten, and not a little peevish.  Cheer me up in the comments by sharing what you’ve read or watched lately that you’ve really liked, and/or what you’re most excited about doing this weekend.

Should we have another week of requests?


Bring me your best, ladies.
