The overalls are not in the washer

Brian and I were packing for our trip. I couldn’t find my overalls, and I really wanted to bring them. I recalled putting them into the hamper to be washed, and Brian didn’t recall folding them with the clean laundry. We searched the whole house looking for them, and couldn’t figure out where they were. […]

Best Mexican Food … Ever

Brian and I celebrated the completion of my first year as a Director at one of our favorite restaurants in Newburyport, Agave. Not only do they serve authentic, tasty tamales and carnitas (among other dishes), but it’s also nice to have the hostess and waiter recognize us and exchange holiday greetings. We were at Agave […]

“Caroling, caroling, caroling, caroling….

Christmas time is here!” On Friday evening a group from church went caroling around the neighborhood. I had been listening to carols and holiday songs in the car all week to get into the spirit, since we’ve had no snow accumulation and it feels more like April than December. Last year, we had extremely icy […]

Charity Time

It’s charity time again so don’t forget to make your tax deductible donations before year end. I think our list is going to stay the same as it has the past few years. Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center Link House, Inc. YWCA of Newburyport Pacific Crest Trail Association

Boston Choral Ensemble Concert

On Friday Dec. 8 I got to see my friend Katherine Foley sing with the Boston Choral Ensemble. Their program was “An English Christmas” at the First Church in Cambridge UCC, a beautiful and acoustically rich venue. The traditional cross-shaped sanctuary was pristine, with impressively lofty ceilings, an arched themed architecture, and a sufficiently large […]

Babysitting Max

Tonight Susan and Dan Sheldon went out to a business dinner together. Since Docto Sarie was interviewing for residency in Portland, ME, they asked me to watch Max. I’ve never solo watched a kid this young before, but I was game to give it a try. Dan showed up with Max about 7pm and gave […]

Hiking 2006

I ended the 2006 season having hiked much more than the past few years (but still not enough). Highlights of this season included hitting 6 new 4000 foot peaks in the White Mountains bringing my total to 18 of 48, climbing Baxter Peak (the highest peak in Maine), and a five day trip with my […]
