It was still dark outside when rioting birds woke me from a dreamless sleep. I'd had trouble getting to sleep last night because it was too warm. One moment I was tossing and turning and the next the cacophony of tweets and twitters pierced the dream bubble and I was suddenly awake. Less than an...

My first visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico was riddled with unexpected contrasts, ranging from earth to sky and everything in between.Day one was sparkling and crisp, punctuated by gusty winds and bright blue skies. The natural beauty of the desert, indigenous people, and adobe architecture steered my...

There is a storm a brewing. I don't have rain over my house but the news channel has me worried the storm is heading my way. Tornado watch until 9am. It is 2am now. Do I go to sleep and hope for the best? Do I stay up and watch the news as the large red areas move closer to my plot on the map? Do I...

     Looking to the south from my dining room window I see that enough snow has fallen on the White Mountains to make them look like rough white snow cones.  Nice to be able to see the snow from far away, so much more enjoyable.  Mainland Greece had some wild times with blizzards and snow.  Luckily...

January makes me angry sometimes, but it's not January's fault.  It gets a bad earth rap, titled away from the sun and all, the entire month.  It's a drag for January, I am sure, but we aren't thinking of poor January--we are thinking of ourselves as we stare out of the window at the rain, snow,...

Honestly, you wouldn't believe how busy I've been since Sunday. It's as if someone has lit a firework under my bottom (sorry, nasty image, I know, but what can you do?...) and stepped back to watch the display. It's been a rollercoaster ride, my dears, but an exciting one - and my brain is a total...

The year 2009 is likely to rank in the top 10 warmest on...

Back to work this week but, due to the astonishing weather conditions, not for long. I managed to get everything up to date - or as near as darnit - on Monday and Tuesday, but then I woke up to a white and icy world on Wednesday, so worked from home. We'd assumed we wouldn't be able to get into the...

Summer Horses through the screen door the crunch of gravel as pick-ups roll into the gas station next door, the hum of a lawn mower or electric saw from some other street the parakeet by the window murmurs to himself in the mirror, plucking at a wing, if he picks anymore he'll have nothing left the...
