Houses & Gardens

Yesterday EJ and I worked in the garden for a bit. EJ planted his tomato and pepper plants in his veggie garden and then he planted his blueberry bushes in the area of the yard where the birdhouses are. While EJ planted, I planted…

The Trip to the Nursery

This morning, after a pot of coffee and a trip to the bank, EJ and I drove to a plant nursery near his company. On the way we passed a garage sale and we decided to turn around and stop at it. I saw…

Pulaski

Yesterday EJ, JJ, and I went to visit his sister and her large family.  We stayed all afternoon and had barbecue steak, chicken, potato salad, tuna salad, chips….all the foods families have when they get together during the summer. The best part of the…

Sparrow Videos

Today the weather has been absolutely beautiful: sunny, warm, with a slight breeze. EJ and I enjoyed a leisurely morning. (JJ is a night owl who stays up late and sleeps late.) After we drank several cups of coffee and ate breakfast, I went…

Let Me Call You Sweetheart

Last week was difficult for EJ. He has been very tired from working so many hours and his back pain has flared up, causing him great pain. Poor guy. Thursday I insisted we get a new mower that works because I hate to have…

Birds & Balloons

Yesterday I did not get out in the garden. Instead, I stayed inside and paid bills and reconciled the bank statement. Bleagh. I dislike both jobs, but they need to be done. The forecast predicted bad storms overnight with high winds so I brought…

I Love My Garden

I woke up feeling crippled by yesterday’s gardening. In spite of my aching body, I spent all day working in the garden today. It was just too beautiful to be inside. It was sunny and the temperature was cool enough (around 70 degrees) that…

In The Garden

It rained all last week but Friday was not rainy so I mowed the lawn. I always mow the lawn outside of the fence that can be easily seen from the road first in case I have trouble with the mower. I think the…

Hot & Cold

It has rained all week. At the beginning of the week it was very warm and humid, and there were several thunderstorms. One crack of thunder was so loud that poor Little Bear leaped up from the window sill where he was sleeping and…

House and Gardens

This morning EJ and I went grocery shopping together. I’m glad he came with me even though he had to go to work this afternoon because shopping is always more fun with him. We have shopped together ever since we got married. I mostly…

Visitors

We were successful at getting JJ’s CT Scan at our second try yesterday. I thought wouldn’t it be terrible if we got there and found out that he was supposed to have fasted? I didn’t think he had to, but the last six months…

Oops

This morning I woke up just before 7 a.m. That is the time I prefer to wake up, and which I used to wake up, but my sleep patterns have gotten all messed up so I’ve been not able to sleep until the wee…

Fowl Delight

I’d like to say that we are bouncing back from JJ’s battle with cancer, but it’s going a lot slower than I expected or wanted. I can’t say this is the most difficult time we have experienced so far because it’s all been difficult–the…

Reaffirmation

I thought this was a very bad week, and it was very difficult in many ways. However, G-d has a way of changing “bad” into “good”–or if not exactly “good” then at least “beneficial.” A friend did something earlier this week that triggered memories…
