The Summer of No

One morning last week EJ went for a walk with Danny and me. He doesn’t walk with me often, but I always enjoy it when he does. Anyway, at one point EJ said to me, “There is a bug on you.” I didn’t panic…

A Good Report

This morning we had to wake up early for JJ’s appointment with his oncologist. I was so afraid of oversleeping that I didn’t really sleep much at all. JJ didn’t sleep much either.  EJ slept well, but he didn’t sleep much the night before…

The Doctor’s Ringtone

Yesterday afternoon, after I had taken Danny for his walk, I went out to see if there were any more ripe strawberries. There weren’t, but I noticed that some of the raspberries were ripening. So I took a bowl and went out to pick…

Rainy Days

Today was a rainy day. Shortly after EJ and I woke up this morning, we had a downpour of rain. Of course, I went out to the front porch and took a video. I like rain. Heavy rain brings back memories of when I…

Borgs and Empaths

I knew from the forecast and Accuweather radar that it was going to rain today, so I walked to the post office, took out the trash, and weeded my herb garden early(ish) this morning. I had only weeded a bit of the herb garden…

I Gave My Love A Cherry

Yesterday morning I went outside to fill the birdfeeders and found a ripe cherry. We have six little cherry trees and I found only ONE ripe cherry. I put it on EJ’s plate when I served him his breakfast. “Where is yours?” he asked….

Boogerized

Today was mostly almost good. I always make Challah bread on Fridays for Shabbat. I always begin making it as soon as I get up in the morning, even before I make coffee or check Facebook, because I have to prepare the dough, let…

Toadscaping

Once I got up this morning and had shared a pot of coffee with EJ, I spent the morning making homemade bread and homemade pizza. Last night JJ had said he was hungry for both and because his appetite has been wonky since his…

Slugged!

The last couple days have been hot and humid–today was worse than yesterday. Storms have been predicted for almost every day this week so I didn’t water the gardens yesterday even though the plants looked thirsty because I didn’t want to water unnecessarily. However,…

Mostly Good!

I woke up this morning when I smelled the coffee. EJ had gotten up before me and made a pot and the aroma wafted all the way upstairs. By the time I got downstairs–before 7 a.m.–EJ was falling asleep in his chair. He works…

My Father’s Day Gifts

Danny sheds a lot, so many times I throw his hair outside so the birds can use it for their nests. But late last week I read–probably at FB and maybe on the Birds & Bloom page–that a person can provide nesting material for…

JJ’s Soap

I was surprised when I came downstairs this morning that both my guys were already awake and up. EJ is often up before I am but JJ stays up until the wee hours of the morning so he often sleeps until early or mid-afternoon….

Misty, Moisty Mornings

One misty, moisty, morning, When cloudy was the weather, There I met an old man All clothed in leather All clothed in leather, With a cap under his chin. How do you do? And how do you do? And how do you do again?…

Plants. And Chickens. And Binoculars.

Yesterday EJ had to have his blood drawn in preparation for a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning. We had an enjoyable 30 mile (or so) drive to the lab. Afterwards we stopped at the nearby farm-market type store because EJ had had to fast for…

Squirrels, Mosquitoes, and Stuff

Oh, my goodness, it’s been a week since I have written. I didn’t realize it had been that long. We have all been tired and unmotivated this week. JJ said it’s been really hitting him that he had CANCER and that he could have…
