Really, Most Sincerely Dead

This morning, after I had drank (drunk?) one cup of coffee (or maybe two), I got dressed and then went to the grocery store in the next town over. On the way home, I stopped at the grain elevator at the end of our…

The Musical Annie

This post is about the musical Annie. It’s not about Annie, the delightful Broadway musical, but about our cat named Annie who has the most musical meow that I have ever heard. We adopted Annie from a yard sale years ago. A cat had had kittens…

Cloudy, Windy Days

When Danny sees EJ preparing to leave for work, he perks up and starts watching me intently. If I put on my shoes then he gets excited because he knows it’s time for his walk. Usually I don’t start preparing for our walk until…

Autumn Prank

After EJ left for work today, I took Danny for his walk. The sky was mostly cloudy, but the weather was warm–almost 60 degrees! When I turned onto our street, I saw a large dog loose about halfway down the block so I turned…

Color Me Autumn

I usually wait up for EJ to get home from work and we talk for a while before I go to bed. Last night he texted me that he had to work late and didn’t know when he would get home so I went…

Confessions of an Ewok Killer

EJ and I had a quiet morning browsing Facebook. (JJ was up all night so he slept until afternoon). Often we share with each other interesting or cute things we find while surfing the Internet. EJ shared a picture of a cute little dog…

Danny, the Introverted Dog

Sunday we were hoping to visit EJ’s family, but EJ has had some challenging days at work and he was so depleted that we stayed home instead so he could rest. We find that we are all very easily depleted these days. We have…

Come Little Leaves

The weather this week has been warm and rainy and rather gloomy. I don’t mind, however. I think rainy gloomy days in the autumn are just as beautiful as blue skies. Today it was a bit windy and the wind tore the leaves off…

Timmy and Gourds

I am having trouble writing this post today–not because I am at a loss for words, but because for the last couple days our cat Timmy has been very cuddly and has been insisting on sleeping on my lap. He’s also giving me lots…

Autumn Harvest

This morning I told EJ that I wanted to exercise more so he advised me while I lift 3 and 5 lb weights. Then he, JJ, Danny, and I went for a walk out into the countryside up to the corn field at the…

Celestial Delight

Last night I set my alarm for 4:30 a.m. so that we could watch the lunar eclipse. The eclipse was actually not supposed to start until 5:15 a.m., but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss any of it. When the alarm went…

Walk, Mouse, Rainbow, and an Eclipse

This morning I made French toast using last Friday’s Challah bread. It was very yummy. After we ate, we all went for a walk–EJ, JJ, Danny, and me. We went out into the countryside a bit, which was very enjoyable. I had hoped to…

Birthday: Day 2

Over the weekend, we ran out of milk and eggs, so I didn’t have ingredients to make breakfast today–egg omelets, French toast, pancakes, or cereal all require either eggs, milk, or both. When JJ asked “What’s for breakfast?” I said, “Donuts….Duh!” I am such…

Autumn Celebration

Tomorrow is my birthday, but we celebrated it today. EJ bought me four (of many) books that I have wanted. I’d rather have books than new clothes or flowers or chocolate or jewelry. However, the gift I ask for every year is an enjoyment…

Autumn Walks and Drives

I spent Wednesday and Thursday afternoons in the kitchen. Wednesday I made two homemade potpies from leftover chicken. After I made them, I realized that I had enough chicken for a couple more pot pies so I made two more yesterday, which I froze…
