Before-and-After stories from our listeners
So fascinating! Readers talked about using lots of different ideas.
Once again, I find myself talking about hard-boiled eggs and my Krups egg-cooker.
Our Favorite Moments
Elizabeth loved hearing from the listener who did the detailed analysis of her voice, and episode 30, when my daughter Eliza was our guest. Remember, Eliza has a podcast of her own, Eliza Starting at 16 (she does the entire thing herself), so if you want to hear more from her, check it out. I loved episode 10, when we recorded in Elizabeth’s closet as we cleared her clutter. Henry played his favorite “Classic Gretch” and “Classic Liz” moments. You can hear us laughing in the background.
A friend and I started a big project featuring our two daughters, but we’ve stalled out. I need to re-start it. The project I mentioned is Four to Llewelyn’s Edge. Update: I followed Elizabeth’s advice, and my friend and I scheduled a meeting to re-start our project.
Elizabeth’s Gold Star
Elizabeth gives a gold star to her in-laws, for being willing cheerfully to help out, even when it’s a hassle.
