Touch and Go

Touch and Go
In his crazy-eights youth, Steve would toss off his marital status as “separated- Janet’s in the suburbs, and I am in Chicago.”  Ha Ha. Fast forward 30 odd years, and that joke becomes our truth. Except that he is in Pompano Beach, and I am in Chicago. With strategic blending. This is a blending week,... Read more »

Who am I? Oscar ready.

Who am I? Oscar ready.
My computer battery died after 5 years of duty, and Steve and I headed to Boca on Sunday for a “genius appointment.” My track pad was dead, and my computer was slow as hell, and to her credit, Dana the Genius plugged in an ethernet cable, confirmed the death of the battery, installed another, and...

Little things that you do....

Little things that you do....
I am in Florida. Steve and I have merged and blended. I don’t hear strings when I see him in baggage claim, but it is a relief to know that he cares enough to park and wait.  That is not a Dahl protocol, but it is strictly the Joliat way.  Detroit does not offer the... Read more »

Hibernation

Hibernation
Nesting is a lovely option when it is cold out. I have made an art form of it, with the last few days melting into a blob of zero accomplishments. Saturday I visited with my sister, and celebrated the opening of the Blackhawks season with a family party at Matthews. All the Dahls except Steve sampled... Read more »

Alone Again, Naturally

Alone Again, Naturally
Steve is in Florida for the next 100 days, getting his endorphins balanced and avoiding the Midwestern gloom that asphyxiates him.  I am content to stay here, with my pack of Milly and Mabel to dig in with.  As I type this, they are stereo-snoring on the bed and I am rethinking my choice. My... Read more »

Dwelling in Glimmering Inertia

Dwelling in Glimmering Inertia
My house is a sparkling haven. It is having a corrosive effect on my holiday efficiency.  This is fine for me, but will make for a crummy Christmas day.  I cannot bring myself to venture out on my rickety knee.  I do not wish to shop.  I want to sit, sip wine, listen to Christmas... Read more »

Coming, Going, Waiting

Coming, Going, Waiting
Summer ebbs, a reality that generally sends me to a vat of candy corn.  And caramel apples.  And chocolate…. But this autumn, we are ticking away the days until we greet our second grandchild.  What a counterpoint to any seasonal regrets.  October 6.  October 6.  Opal.  Like my Mom.  Libra.  Like my Mom. I have... Read more »

Projects and Solitude-part 1.

Projects and Solitude-part 1.
Last year Steve went South to Florida after a stint at White Sox Fantasy Camp.  This year, his fantasy was to get into the sun without having to chase fly balls.  He has been in Florida for a week.  I am not sure if this makes me the best wife or the dumbest.  We are... Read more »

Little blessings

My last posting emanated from despair of death.  That is a bad place to squat.  How to get out ? Look up for the light. To that end,  I have some vignettes that make me happy.  On their own, they are simply anecdotes. They testify to a greater truth:people are generally good.  This is a... Read more »
