writin’ the next cipher

by Edie Wadsworth on December 31, 2011

I have 47 posts swirling in my head. But I’ve been hamstrung this week. A few snarky emails will do that to a committed people pleasing girl. Once in a while, it seems I will inevitably strike at a nerve. I will say something and either the way I say it or the content of […]

Italian Sub Soup

italian sub soup

Italian Sub Soup My mother has many charming qualities but one of my favorites is the way she says Italian (Eye-talian) and Hawaii (Hiii-wah-ya). I think I’ll make it my personal goal to make sure she says those two words every time I see her. It may be tricky but it’s too cute to pass […]

by Edie Wadsworth on December 25, 2011

To all our beloved friends and family who have seen us through this year of tragedy and rebuilding—-we are so thankful for you. Your thoughts and prayers and words and meals and gifts have meant more to us than you will ever know. We celebrate with you God incarnate, come in the flesh, to bear […]


After the Storm:::One Year Later

by Edie Wadsworth on December 21, 2011

And after the storm, I run and run as the rains come And I look up, I look up, on my knees and out of luck, I look up. Night has always pushed up day You must know life to see decay But I won’t rot, I won’t rot Not this mind and not this […]


The Nutcracker 2011

by Edie Wadsworth on December 18, 2011

I’m not sure I can convey the sheer joy of watching my ballerinas perform this weekend in a  wonderful and classic rendition of  The Nutcracker.   I was teary eyed more than not.  And I breathed a huge sigh of relief when Emme finished her last dance as Clara.   This stuff is hard on […]

We made it to Friday, comrades! I don’t know about you but I wasn’t sure I’d make it to Friday in the same size jeans. I’m still not sure. I have the stretchy variety on at the moment and I wish for all the world I could keep it that way. I must confess that […]


Christmas Sweet Treats::Party Style

This is where I confess to you my absolute inability to resist homeade fudge.    I briefly tried today to see how long I could make one piece last.   My spiritual gift is not will power.   It wasn’t pretty. But fudge freezes so maybe I’ll put the bounty in the freezer.   Not […]

Cranberry and Onion Cheeseball aka Christmas Cheeseball

by Edie Wadsworth on December 3, 2011

I’m finally joining my own party.  I had one of those long productive days that have you saying at 8pm,  ”Is this the first time I’ve sat down all day?” The girls and I didn’t finish school until 5pm and I cooked and cleaned and decorated all day in between teaching/facilitating school. Whew!  I’m weary. […]


Sisters, Foo(Dogs) and Food

by Edie Wadsworth on December 2, 2011

This is my favorite time of year with my girls.   We tromp around hither and yon going to plays and antique stores and parades and Nutcrackers and all manner of Christmas-y  field trips. We also quietly and deliberately celebrate Advent in the evenings after dinner with Dad. I love the contrast.   The quiet […]
