Different Than Expected

There are a lot of things about our Enchanted Forest that are other than I expected.  It’s not bad, it’s just different than my expectations. I think that even though a person might imagine what it would be like to live in a different sort… Continue Reading “Different Than Expected”

Driveway Project

This morning as I was refilling the outdoor cats’ bowl with fresh water, I found a very pretty moth. I’m amazed at all the different types of moths and other bugs that we are finding in our Enchanted Forest. Some moths are very huge,… Continue Reading “Driveway Project”

Too Many Bricks

When I was growing up, I remember that whenever anyone had a problem, people (particularly at church) questioned whether the cause was spiritual, emotional (mental health), or physical (biological). Each problem was seen as separate and distinct from the others–although usually it was assumed… Continue Reading “Too Many Bricks”

Mr. Incredible and Me

Sometimes I feel like Mr. Incredible. Yes, I’m referring to the powerful superhero Mr. Incredible but, no, I’m not talking about the scene from the movie in which he was strong enough to fight multiple villains, deal with a pesky fan, rescue an old… Continue Reading “Mr. Incredible and Me”

A Dog, Two Cats, and A Flock of Turkeys

Today EJ called the new insurance agency to see if all our policies had been transferred, and to also find out how we were going to manage this first month of payment. I had talked to the agent at the downstate agency on Monday… Continue Reading “A Dog, Two Cats, and A Flock of Turkeys”

Storm Stories

After the day EJ and I had Saturday trying to get our beater truck up north, we were exhausted and planned on having a quiet, restful day on Sunday. It didn’t exactly go that way. In fact, in a different way Sunday was just… Continue Reading “Storm Stories”

My Second Worst Drive Ever

Today was My Second Worst Drive Ever. Yesterday we had to get up early to pick up JJ’s car at the shop in Eureka. When we got back home, we had to drive downstate because we were meeting with a realtor at the old… Continue Reading “My Second Worst Drive Ever”
