Quick Takes as a Daybook


It’s been a while since I’ve done a daybook, so why not, thought I, combine two of my favorite formats? — Around the House — It’s Thursday as I type this (but you don’t mind, do you?), and the house is quiet. There’s the sound of Daniel Tiger as my mancub fights his nap and the […]

A Bit of Daybooking


Outside my window: It’s dark, because it’s night. Waaaaay past my bedtime, in fact. Usually I have a “no computer” rule after dinner, but that’s been sliding in the last few months and today’s been full. I just finished this great book and I can’t wind down just yet, so here I am. Around the […]

The Daybook of Busy and Hot


Outside my window: The sun is just cresting the horizon. There’s a gray mist on the far field and pink and yellow above the tree line. Around the house: It’s quiet. But not for much longer. What I’ve been writing: Oh my word. This and that and what I can. I’ve been trying to keep […]

A Saturday Morning Daybook

Snowy Saturday Daybook

Outside my window: Snow! On the ground! Around the house: There’s a pile of people–Daddy and girls–on my couch, watching a movie. The boy is dragging a stool around the kitchen counters, seeing what fun he can find. What I’ve been writing: I’ve been treading water and keeping up with my weekly commitments. I have […]

A Monday Daybook


Outside my window: The moon was hovering over the western horizon as a big tangerine. My seven-year-old pointed it out to me as we were waiting for the bus. I can’t get the image of it out of my mind. The light outside is still soft and new, but won’t be that way for long. […]
