CAMEO APPEARANCES Yesterday I receive a comment from Amy W on the post just before this one. She says,“You’re like Marie Kondo of the internet. Next you’ll be folding Facebook nicely into a drawer.” The image of Facebook, folded oh so neatly and placed just so in a drawer, has me in stitches. Thank you […]
Streamlining In the ongoing saga of Kate streamlining her online life, I present “Getting off of social networks you do not remember signing up for.” Last night after receiving an email that someone “likes” a post of mine on Ello, I scratch my head wondering, “Ello? What the heck is that?” I go to the […]
Maiden Voyage The next Pie Camp begins this afternoon and there are new additions to the cottage to greet campers. For you, my excitement of two new stainless steel prep tables may feel kinda uninteresting or ho-hum, but let me tell you, these tables are a big deal. I’ve been thinking about taking the plunge […]

Ireland Days #3-4 Sometimes I think of coffee as a blessed brew served by an angel of mercy, and Day 3 begins with a perfect cup. Breakfasts here are hearty and delicious…enough to fuel one through an entire day.
This is NOT Cherry Pie Driving north yesterday, I stop for tea in the town of Kilrush at The Buttermarket Cafe. Walking in the door of the cheerful little spot, I know it’s the perfect place for a break in the day. While in the middle of a conversation with a local, I hear the […]
