Hidden Hawk

EJ had three days off for Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving we went out to eat at Denny’s. The day after Thanksgiving, we cooked a turkey in the roaster so we could have leftovers. I enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers at least as much as I enjoy the…

Happy Thanksgiving

EJ and I spent the morning quietly. I listened to classical violin/piano music as we browsed the Internet and enjoyed the warmth of the wood stove. We sipped our coffee surrounded by cuddly cats and watched the birds and squirrels at the feeders. At about…

Thanksgiving Plans

Well, we survived the rain and the wind without any loss of power. Today the weather was much quieter. And colder. With a few snowflakes. I enjoyed a few hours of quiet this morning while my guys slept. I made a pot of coffee,…

Crazy Rain & Wind

Yesterday EJ finally had a day off…so we went grocery shopping. Since we had a slow-moving morning and didn’t leave the house until noon (without having eaten breakfast), we decided first to go to Denny’s for breakfast/lunch. EJ had a steak breakfast and I had…

Number 9

We woke up late this morning. Well, it’s not all that late since these days I am often still up at midnight, or 1 a.m., or 2 a.m. I’m actually more of a morning person, but we often can’t sleep. Sometimes I wonder if…

Haircuts!

JJ had been urging me to make him an appointment to get his hair cut, so I finally did. As usual, I made an appointment for me as well. It saves time and trips that way. I haven’t had my hair cut since May…

The Reese’s Cup Wrapper

It did not rain today, but dark, dramatic clouds filled the sky. It was beautiful. I love the different moods of the days and seasons. On Halloween night, kids often drop candy and wrappers as they go from house to house gathering sweet loot….

Misty November

Yesterday as Danny and I were nearing the end of our walk, about a block away from home, I saw our cat Rikki-Tikki-Tabby walking down the sidewalk toward us. When he reached us, I picked him up and gave him lovings as we continued…

Mouse-capades

Last weekend–from Friday to Sunday–we have had FIVE mice in the house. That is the most mice we have ever had in our house in such a short time. Usually there are weeks or months between mouse sightings and killings. I already wrote about…

Tangled Trip Into Mordor

Writing about topics such as abuse feels to me like journeying through Mordor: it’s like journeying through a dark place filled with evil things. There are many different perspectives about writing about abuse. Some people believe that you shouldn’t write about it because it…

She Understands. She Doesn’t Comprehend.

One of our favorite TV series is a science fiction show called Firefly. It ran for only one season (2002-2003) but developed a cult following. As Wikipedia describes it, “The show explores the lives of a group of people who fought on the losing side…

Species and Breeds

This is a more serious post than usual. Sometimes it is helpful for me to write out my deep thoughts, especially if I am wrestling with something. A few months ago, a friend hurt me deeply at a time when I did not have…
