Because life is just a series of revisions and I am a work in progress.
My day so far: Feed and take care of Business with my dog. Pour coffee, open news feed. Mom and her dog come downstairs. Feed and take care of Business w/both dogs. Warm up coffee, reopen sleeping news feed. Mom starts laundry. Ungodly noise from washer. Bang around on washer. Seems to still be working?… Continue reading Maytag Neptune Unleashes Kraken in Laundry Room. News at Eleven.
I really like lists. Lists, timelines, graphs, charts...not because I'm the most methodical of people, but precisely because I'm not. There's always a lot going on in noggin, and it's not terribly orderly in there. The big ideas are kind of wibbly wobbly all over time and space, and the little idea are sort of this gnat like cloud… Continue reading Leonardo’s To Do List and Michelangelo’s Groceries
In the spring I always get the urge to: Redecorate my house. Redesign my blog. Plant flowers. Ride a bike everywhere. (After I buy one.) Go to a farmer's market.Cook all organic fresh meals. (After I spend all my money on the bike and farmer's market.)Train my dog.Dye my hair.Sew adorable, quirky clothes that look I share a closet with… Continue reading Spring Spring Spring
So, the Christmas report. Here's my Christmas Tree, with Mom's present under it. I sort of love that it looks like Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree. We also had an Advent wreath this year: Sweet, right? Only yesterday I realized I didn't have a candle holder for the white candle in the middle, the one you… Continue reading On the Second Day of Christmas…
LAST week I posted that I'd sold my house. Yay! But I didn't have anywhere to move to. So I was operating on Contingency Plan B, which was to store everything and stay with my Grandmother until we found the right house. Which was no where in sight. So might take awhile. But guess… Continue reading One Claw Foot Tub Away From Perfection
It's been a rough couple of weeks at Casa Del Clement-Moore. So to remind myself that Life is Good, today I am posting about Things That Make Me Happy. 1) My family and friends. I know this is cliche, but it's true. Read the dedication of Spirit and Dust (you HAVE pre-ordered your copy, right?)… Continue reading Things that make me happy
Recently, for reasons that I will let you wonder about, I have begun a vain attempt to wedge a small gap between Rosemary Clement-Moore the (amazing! talented!) author of (award-winning!) books and what let's call, for purposes of this post, "Private Life Rose."Here's the first problem with that process. There IS no part of me… Continue reading Truth vs Fiction
So, here’s a nugget of Real Life Info for you. Not only does my mother live with me (or me with her, depending on who you ask), but I rent my upstairs apartment to a nun. Let’s just let that sink in for a minute. I live with my mother and Maria Von Trapp. Then… Continue reading The Real Me
(Read all the way to the bottom for a chance to win a copy of Brimstone, which comes out next week!) Whenever I go too long without Tweeting, my family and friends call or text to make sure I haven’t fallen down the stairs and/or been eaten by my dogs. This says a lot about… Continue reading How I Spent My Summer Vacation
