Miles To Go Before We Sleep

The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. ~ from Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost I can’t decided if… Continue Reading “Miles To Go Before We Sleep”

Painting

Last night I went outside occasionally to see if I could see any Northern Lights. At about 12:30 am or so I gave up and went to bed. EJ told me that he could see them faintly as he drove home, but they weren’t… Continue Reading “Painting”

JJ’s Port

Yesterday feels like a long time ago. Yesterday morning we had to run a few errands. As we started out, we stopped at our mailbox to get the mail. We found a card from the realtor who helped us find our house. He had… Continue Reading “JJ’s Port”

At Home in the Enchanted Forest

I was so exhausted yesterday that I thought I’d sleep all night. However, about 3 or so I had to go to the bathroom. I went to bed, but Danny decided he wanted outside. Sigh. So I grabbed his leash and out we went.… Continue Reading “At Home in the Enchanted Forest”

There and Back Again

After getting home from work last night (or rather, in the wee hours of the morning), EJ slept three hours and then we drove to our old house. We loaded up the Buggy and then drove to the graduation open house. We spent a… Continue Reading “There and Back Again”

When I in Awesome Wonder

Morning When JJ got home from work last night, he said, “Our forest is kind of scary! I saw blue glowing eyes in a tree about halfway up the hill. I think it was probably an owl.” I said, “Maybe it was an orc.”… Continue Reading “When I in Awesome Wonder”

Funny Miss Twiggley

This morning as I got out of bed, I glanced out the window and saw a deer grazing right outside. I snuck out to the living room and got my camera, and then snuck back into the bedroom and began taking video and pictures.… Continue Reading “Funny Miss Twiggley”

Projects

The temperature dropped down into the 40’s last night…even though it’s mid-June! I think that is cool (pun intended). The high today was 71. I like the cooler temps. JJ had to be at work at noon today. After he left, the guy EJ… Continue Reading “Projects”

Boundary Markers

Yesterday, a couple of hours after I saw the doe and her two fawns, Danny asked to go out. It was about twilight. During the day I let Danny go outside with us without a leash–unless we are near the road. However, toward evening… Continue Reading “Boundary Markers”

This Land Is Our Land

This morning I began painting our living room. We chose a color called Kira Caramel, which is a neutral beige color that I think is sort of the color of butter. It’s so good to get rid of the dark blue walls! While I… Continue Reading “This Land Is Our Land”

Weekend Busyness

The weekend has been very busy. Friday morning I was barely awake when I got a call from the hospital saying that JJ could have his port out that very day if he wanted to. He also could choose to have a twilight anesthesia when… Continue Reading “Weekend Busyness”

Unfamiliar Things

Last night I looked out the front door and saw a humongous spider on the porch. I texted EJ, “I just saw the biggest spider EVER on our front porch. I need a gun.” It was the size of my hand. Seriously. I took… Continue Reading “Unfamiliar Things”

Running

This morning I started to get out of bed but quickly lay back down–because a doe was grazing right outside our window. I watched her for several minutes as she slowly grazed and then walked into the forest. I wished I had my camera,… Continue Reading “Running”

Mailbox Run and Turkey Trot

This morning JJ, Danny and I walked down the long steep driveway to our new mail box. When JJ got his new smart phone from the cell phone store, I was given a mailing label and told that I had 14 days to return… Continue Reading “Mailbox Run and Turkey Trot”

Unpacking

We continue to unpack and settle into our new house. I began my morning by putting things away in the kitchen. I’m trying to get a feel for where to put things. Like…putting plates or cups where we’d expect to find them, or putting… Continue Reading “Unpacking”
