Full of Grace

- That the best candidate (IMO) was elected to run my Town after the present Supervisor decided to retire after 16 years.  I will miss working with him as he almost always saw things my way. There will be changes but at least I get to keep my job.  

- Finally sleeping better. Daylight Savings Time always screws me up.

- Cate’s new movie “Truth” finally came to town.  The movie was okay but, as usual, she was heart stopping.  I am going to need Martha to bring a defibrillator when “Carol” comes out.

- Both the girls away for the weekend.  I will miss them when they leave for good but I do love a quiet, cozy weekend with just Martha.

- Pre-winter chores -  leaves all raked and mulched, veggie garden rototilled, oil changed in lawnmower and snowblower, patio furniture cleaned and stored, hoses disconnected and faucets weather-proofed, perennial garden covered with mulch.  Everything is done.  I am ready.  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.


  1. If Cate knew what an ardent fan you are, she would make a special trip to your town to thank you. At least, in my imagination that would happen... :-)

    On a more mundane note, I admire your winter preparedness. I've gotten few of those darned chores done yet this fall. Hmph.


  2. In my imagination, if Cate came to my town, she would be doing a lot more than saying "thank you". : )

  3. I'm falling over over this conversation between the two of you. Ah me!

    Let's wait for snow until I've flown the coop! I've had enough snow to last me a lifetime.

  4. Ok - now I feel motivated to get busy. Have done some of those things on the list... I still need to mow one more time if I can.

    We are so excited for Carol too...

  5. Two thirds of the way winterizing the indoors. Haven't done diddly to the outside, but then no veggies or new plantings.

    I am good on not seeing snow for a great while. Boots, must get boots.

    Ahhh Cate. Smoldering was the descriptor used for a recent photo for . . I forget the publication. Ahhh.

  6. It all sounds good except for the snow. We had our first taste last night and I just stood at the window sighing.

  7. Just fyi, MoMA (the NYC one) has Cate on their magazine. Right now. Can't do links from my phone, but a Google should get you there. ;)


  8. Crap, she is going to be honored there tomorrow night! Why am I not there???
