I keep promising a new travelogue and I’m sorry it’s taking me so long if you’ve been looking for it. I’d run into some problems getting the photos off of my phone, but I think I’ve got it all figured out now. Honestly, photo organization is forever on my most-requested gift list. I just want […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
It’s been a rough week for our community. It made national news, so some of you may have read—we had a series of stabbings and, for about a week, no idea when the killer would be identified and caught. Until yesterday, when an arrest was finally made, just blocks from the kids’ school. The randomness […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to going to the kids’ school in a few hours and picking up Hudson, who has been away all week at a 6th grade camp. It’s been so strangely empty in the house without him. Can’t wait to hear all about his adventure. He gets back just in time for […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! No leprechaun traps this year, but we did start the day with some Lucky Charms and a quick green manicure. Are you looking for last-minute inspiration for making the day feel special at home? Here are five ideas for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with kids. And for the grownups, here’s a […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
The ice cubes over on Discocubes are stunning! These spheres feel like they sum up the current mood around here especially well: frozen spring. Everything is in bloom but we’re all in countdown mode to warm, sunny days as winter persists. In good seasonal news, just a few more days until the sun sets after […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
There’s some big news in my life—I’m still sort of processing it! I’ve found someone to be the new Editor of The Dirt! The Davis Publication I took over in 2019, and re-launched this December, has a new owner. I’m really happy about the transition! My goal was to build it into a magazine-like-newspaper that […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
I’ve got manicures in mind as an activity with Skyler this weekend. It’s going to be just the two of us while Hudson and Aron are away for a soccer tournament. What are you looking forward to this weekend? Some links of note… Cool nails! Nice to see for short-cuts!

Today I was downtown and there are blooms on all the trees—when did that happen? It made me realize that I spent far too much time on my computer this week and not enough time outside enjoying the shift toward spring. I’m so happy the sun is out, and I’m going to make myself get […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Sorry that the title “weekly” has not been accurate lately! It’s another week in which the news is hard to look at. “The U.S. has seen 39 mass shootings so far this month. More than 60 people have been killed.” It’s not even February. I saw this poem on Kottke and it really captured that […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy New Year! I saw a meme featuring Larry David saying that you’re only allowed to wish people that up to January 7, so I’m making it in just under the wire! We greeted the new year with friends (kids, too) at a long table playing truth or lie and Cards Against Humanity. Afterward, on […] The post Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating tomorrow! And season’s greetings to everyone! Thank you for coming back here throughout the years—even if my posting is less regular than it once was, this is still a very special space for me and I’m grateful to you for reading and wishing our family well. I love […] The post Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! appeared first on Hither & Thither.
The kids are getting out of school in just a bit and I’m going to go get them and head straight to the orthodontist. We made it a whole nine days before Skyler put her retainer in a napkin at a restaurant and we found ourselves begging the management to let us search their trash. […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
The big news for me this week is that I finished the December issue of The Dirt! The community events calendar/newspaper I started publishing just before the pandemic went into hibernation mode for nearly three years. I wasn’t sure if I would be printing it again, but the City of Davis reached out about helping […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy almost-holiday! Our plans had been to go to Lake Tahoe and then come back in time for dinner here, but we might stay home for the break after-all. Last weekend was full of travel and I’m ready to stay put for a bit. Plus, I have a lot of work today getting ready to […] The post The Weekly Digest (& Happy Thanksgiving!) appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy November! Tonight is Skyler’s first piano recital (aka “piano party”), though only one parent gets to go so I’ll content myself to get the details after. She chose dad because I already get to hear her at the lessons each week. Tomorrow begins the final AYSO soccer games, so that’s our big activity Saturday […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy (almost) Halloween! We’re in the late stages of putting together costumes and doing our best to fit in traditions like pumpkin-carving and hay mazes before November comes. Skyler has made a request that has been harder than expected to fulfill and Aron and I were laughing about how she hasn’t checked in on it […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Going to give Pickleball a try for the first time this weekend… in a tournament. Wish me luck. Maybe I can channel the Leanne Ford x Recess aesthetic in look at least? The host just sent me this video about the five stages of Pickleball. I’m probably at stage 2. Happy to say I got […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Aron’s birthday is coming up and I still need to plan something special. For years we used to go to Yosemite to celebrate—and looking back over one of our travelogues from a fall visit made me miss it so much! It’s been far too long since we’ve been in that majestic valley. I’m not sure […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
There are pumpkins appearing all over town. Always a bit jarring to see while we are just hitting our tomato-salad eating stride. This one from the Salad Freak cookbook has my name on it! We all drove into the foothills, to Apple Hill, on Wednesday to get into the fall mood –lots of apple cider […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
It rained in California this week! Just after our unprecedented heat wave, this week started cool and rainy and Davis somehow got close to 4-inches of rain (that’s 20% of our usual yearly total) in 24 hours. Now we’re getting back into the ’90s this weekend. But yesterday evening, as the clouds rolled out, was […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
It’s been a minute. I’ve been saving up some links for a while, but lately I get so distracted when I start scrolling that I run out of time to actually share! Let’s see… catching up… summer was very full of travel and family. I posted photos on Instagram, if you’d like to see. The […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
We’ve officially begun our summer break—with all the hours in the pool and slices of watermelon that a 106-degree-high first day off requires. Hudson played pickleball, and went to see Top Gun Maverick for a third time; Skyler came up with swim routines and listened to the soundtrack from Zombies 2 on repeat. In between […] The post Happy Summer Vacation! appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Happy Friday! It’s been a nice, short week for me, Aron and I celebrated 15 years of marriage with a couple of nights in Calistoga at the start of it! Today we celebrate my mother’s birthday and tomorrow we head into Marin for a friend’s birthday hike. Lots to celebrate! We’re also almost entirely moved […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
How is everyone feeling today? We’ve been largely occupied with home projects the past two weeks: We are finally getting our pantry! Here was my inspo post a few years back. Also, we replaced our damaged cork flooring this week. We’ve been moved out of the house and will move back in this weekend! Here’s an older […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
Thanks for the well-wishes from some of you on my surgery! I’m about 2-1/2 weeks out since repairing a deviated septum and I can breathe out of both sides of my nose again! All in all, it’s been a good recovery. I’m just still trying to learn how to get a good sleep through the […] The post The Weekly Digest appeared first on Hither & Thither.
