Month: September 2014

1, 2, 3…

This morning JJ had an appointment with his oncologist. JJ and I were both really tired because we only got about 4 hours sleep. We never seem to sleep very well before a medical appointment. EJ slept really well. We had a really nice… Continue Reading “1, 2, 3…”

Visitation From Above

The day JJ had his CT scan, he felt progressively more sick–nauseous and so cold that I fixed a hot water bottle to warm him. We felt our memories yanked back to the weeks in which we all dozed downstairs to be available to… Continue Reading “Visitation From Above”

Rosh Hashanah

JJ had a CT Scan scheduled for this morning. He has to have scans every few months to make sure the cancer is truly gone and has not reappeared. None of us slept very well in anticipation of this appointment. JJ didn’t sleep well… Continue Reading “Rosh Hashanah”

Fun at Lowes

This morning after a pancake breakfast with real Michigan maple syrup, EJ and I went to Lowes Home Improvement store to get some heavy plastic to put over the top of the woodshed to protect the firewood from the weather. Our woodshed used to… Continue Reading “Fun at Lowes”

(Un)Summoned!

This morning I made EJ one of his favorite breakfasts of scrambled eggs (with some of my garden herbs), homemade toast, a banana, and coffee. Afterwards, I prepared two homemade chicken pot pies. It is my favorite meal–and EJ and JJ love it too.… Continue Reading “(Un)Summoned!”

Afternoon Rains

EJ was “on call” this weekend, which meant that he didn’t have to go to work unless there was a problem that required his presence. If he is called in, he only has to be there until the problem is fixed and then he… Continue Reading “Afternoon Rains”

Fall Busyness

I spent most of last week cleaning and organizing the downstairs. I cleaned out the media closet, which is a small living room closet in the space under the stairs. I filled bags with videos which EJ later donated to Goodwill, along with other… Continue Reading “Fall Busyness”

Autumn Organization

I have been busy over the last few days. Sunday morning EJ and I bought our tenth load of firewood. We considered–briefly–buying another load, but decided we were too, too tired. We parked the truck–with the wood still in it–and went grocery shopping. On… Continue Reading “Autumn Organization”

INFJ Pondering

My family really enjoys weather-watching. We love to watch storms approaching on radar. Many, many times, we watch a huge storm comes straight towards us on radar but then it splits north and south and our village slides through the tiny gap between. Either… Continue Reading “INFJ Pondering”

A Busy Day

Today was an interesting day. EJ and I left the house at 10:30 a.m. to get more firewood. First we drove to the gas station to put gas in the truck. I said to EJ, “I understand how a person gets their physical characteristics… Continue Reading “A Busy Day”

Yes, Sir, Yes, Sir, Three Loads Full…

I slept well last night. Duh. I was exhausted. When I got up this morning, first thing I did was check the weather radar. A HUGE amount of rain was headed our way. I thought, well, it looks like we aren’t going to be… Continue Reading “Yes, Sir, Yes, Sir, Three Loads Full…”

How Much Wood…

I had trouble sleeping last night. I think I finally fell asleep at around 4 a.m. I woke up at 7 a.m. something, and then only dozed for a bit more. Our sleep cycles are still not back to normal. A few days ago,… Continue Reading “How Much Wood…”

The Chimney Swifts

Monday afternoon we had storms. There wasn’t a lot of lightning and thunder, but the wind was strong and it rained and rained and rained. It rained sideways, and waves of water ran down the street, and the sides of the street flooded a… Continue Reading “The Chimney Swifts”

Walks and Storms

Thank you, my readers, for indulging my “thinking” posts. Now that I have poured out those thoughts, I can get back to writing my regular types of posts. It is now September! Yay! I can’t wait for cooler temperatures and brightly colored leaves! I… Continue Reading “Walks and Storms”
