The Winner Of The Blue Nile Mini-Birthstone Pendant, And, Thank You For Your Stories

Cat won the draw for the birthstone pendant. She wrote, “Although my birthstone is peridot, green has never been my color. I would opt for aquamarine to bring a touch of the sea to my decidedly earthbound day-to-day.” Congrats, Cat! Please ping me at my skyepeale email, with your mailing address, and Blue Nile will […]

Thank You Internet For Growing My Ideas On Friendship, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:16am

I know we often bemoan the state of the Internet. Surely it’s been a home for some of the least civil, most bullying words we’ve ever heard in broad company. But let’s take a balanced view. That’s how we find our way. The Internet has also opened up whole new ways of finding and having […]

Are Birthstones Only For The Birthday Girl? And Is Your Birth Stone The Only One You Get With Meaning?

After all the posts about my birthday, you guys deserve a present. When Blue Nile got in touch with me about another giveaway recently, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I confess, Part One involved something for me. As you may know, I rely on chandelier earrings to elevate my Extreme Casual. As […]

Back After Labor Day Leaving Some Older Posts For Your Review, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:42am

Hi my cute buddies. I have kept blogging through the events of my mother’s care, rather than taking my usual quarterly week-long breaks.  But I’ve reached the time to take a deep breath and recover. Nothing is perfect. Mom’s not going to get better, per se. But I have high hopes that her new facility […]

The Privilege Annual Report To The Board – Wrapping Up 2015

Over the years I’ve habitually reported on the workings of this blog to the “board.” That means you. Doing so feels right, it’s a way to retain transparency without cluttering my writings with this kind of statement; “If you click HERE I will earn $0.16, if you buy THIS I will earn $4.05.” Or, on […]

Tough Week, Or, Saturday Morning at 7:58am

Oof, guys, tough week! For me, at least. I hope yours was OK. My mother’s condition has progressed, we are talking and thinking about what to do. This requires reading and writing emails, making phone calls, driving places, occasionally swallowing hard as tears show up from nowhere. It’s a little bit like having half your […]
