Jessie Raymond: Finishing book before she's 'Gone'

I finally did it: I read a whole book in less time than it takes a pint of half-and-half to go bad in my fridge.

Jessie Raymond: Bitter cold boots body and mind

Posted on September 24, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



I’m a fun, football-loving, school-supporting Addison County resident. So I should have been looking forward to attending a Middlebury Tigers home football game last Friday night, right?

Well, I would have been, except the games don’t start until 7, a time when the sun is going down, the temperatures are dropping and my thoughts are turning to how nice it would be to crawl into a warm bed with a good book.

Dear Fine Gardening magazine,

It is with great sadness that I request that you cancel my entry in your Gardener of the Year contest, Vegetable Division. Turns out, I don’t stand a chance.

Jessie Raymond: Help! My daughter got her learner's permit

Posted on August 27, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



Our daughter recently got her learner’s permit, so you know what that means: Mother is going to need a sedative.

Let me be clear: There is nothing wrong with my daughter’s driving skills so far. There is a lot wrong with my skills as a passenger.

I don’t consider myself a control freak in general. But traveling in a car in which I can’t reach the brake pedal terrifies me. In fact, it’s the primary reason I don’t have a chauffeur.

Jessie Raymond: Expectations up, enjoyment down

Posted on August 14, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



I bought a car this past December. While I had been mostly concerned about finding something reliable, I admit the car’s extensive bells and whistles came as a welcome bonus. Over the past eight months, however, they have turned me into a spoiled, though very comfortable, brat.

Jessie Rayond: Finding the balance for a healthy diet

Posted on July 30, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



When it comes to people who  don’t feel conflicted about their food-buying choices, there are two extremes.

At one end are those who happily subsist on microwave burritos and Cheetos and traipse through life unconcerned about the environmental or nutritional impacts of what they eat. At the other end are those who live primarily on lentils and kefir, certain that they are making the healthiest and most socially conscious decisions about their food.

Jessie Raymond: Outdoors, neither naked nor afraid

Posted on July 16, 2014 |

For the past couple of months I’ve been walking the dog on the Trail Around Middlebury or, as I like to call it, “The Trail That Runs Practically Past My House But Which, Until This Spring, I Had Been on Only Once in the Eight Years We’ve Lived There.”

Jessie Raymond: Helping hands set good example

Posted on July 2, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



We finally did it: We hired someone to clean the house.

This was a move my husband had been suggesting for years, mostly as an alternative to having to pitch in more himself. But I wouldn’t consider it.

I’ve always had this idea that people who hire house cleaners are not like us. They buy furniture new. They own the kind of rugs that must be insured. To them, “winter” is not a season, it’s a verb meaning something you do somewhere much farther south.

Jessie Raymond: Warm spell melts winter memories

Posted on June 18, 2014 |
By Jessie Raymond



Jessie's column.jpg

Sitting on the back porch with a friend the other day, I mentioned how much I loved Vermont.

“It’s just so beautiful,” I said. “The flowers, the birds, the views. I feel so lucky to live here.”

She snorted and said, “That’s funny, because three months ago you were binge-watching ‘House Hunters International’ and telling me you were seriously considering moving to Costa Rica.”

Um, I don’t think so.
