Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Wow, this is a tight week! I love my long weekends but they are wreaking havoc on the work that I have to do for the site. Somehow I managed to squeeze in lunch with Em [my best friend] who I hadn’t seen since March—I have to realize that lunch doesn’t have to be an...

Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Got home late last night and had to prepare for the meeting, scheduled months ago, with my attorney and estate planner. This is my least favorite thing in the world to do. Steve always handled these affairs and despite my frequent urging him to teach me about this...

The garden blooms

Got picked up at 10:00 to go to island. Shlepped a reasonable amount of stuff for one person/ two nights. Got to get back to the city Monday night for a meeting with the lawyers Tuesday early a.m. There are ripe apples and red pears on the trees now. There are roses...

A busy day

A busy day

Writing my memories

Writing my memories

I’m writing my memories. I’m not famous or important. I’m simply exploring the course of my life and how I got where I am now. That recently led me to a journal from1974, when I was in Africa with my first husband, trying to find a location to build a research...
