Just A Simple Thank You, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:19am


  I’ve just returned from a trip. Do you all remember that Sue from Une Femme and I attended New York Fashion Week together last year? As it happened, we got along so swimmingly, and found ourselves to be such well-suited travel companions, that we thought we’d go somewhere together again. And then, ages and ages ago, […]

Determined Hope, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:20am


I finally managed to post that piece about how I came to my political beliefs. It’s here. I’m now enjoying the relief of having done as I promised myself. And in the pause before I begin the next block of Things To Do, which includes everything from planting another abelia bush for putative butterflies to taking my car […]

Out And About In The Virtual World, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:23am


This week in the world on our screens. I posted an open letter to Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, on Medium. A Medium editor liked it and put it in the top few recommended for that day. I was quite gratified. I went to a yoga class and emerged blissful, on Twitter. My heart […]

Local Girl Makes Good, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:23am


Remember these tights, from this post on same? By Marilyn Pollack Naron, the drawing is practical and charming at once. Happily, you can now browse a whole website of Marilyn’s work. So endearing.

When You Just Can’t Be A Lifestyle Blogger Any More


Bear with me. Or not. I always appreciate your time. 2016 hit hard. We moved Mom as best we could, she has settled in, but Donald Trump became president. In my eyes that puts our most needy citizens at risk. I have to do something. For those who already know they won’t survive all ~1400 […]

Taking Stock Of Online Life, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:01am


This morning I was poking around on Facebook. I decided, then and there, to winnow my “friend” pool. Why? I never meant to be on Facebook, I joined back when I was blogging in an anonymous High WASP way, I was connected to several people I don’t actually know and with whom I share very […]

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 […]
