Bare Trees

I woke up this morning with a lot of congestion and a deep cough. My neck also felt itchy–and I realized that I had been scratching it in my sleep. I looked in the mirror and saw that I have a rash that looks… Continue Reading “Bare Trees”

Lothlorien

  I had wondered what colors our forest would wear in the autumn. Most of the trees turned golden with just a little splash of red here and there. Our forest turned so golden that it reminded me of Lothlorien in The Lord of… Continue Reading “Lothlorien”

Spiders and Trees

Yesterday I bought some spider spray so I’d be armed if I encountered anymore giant spiders. They really do scare me, and I found my “spider senses” are tingling with alertness. I especially scan the front porch when Danny wants out at night because… Continue Reading “Spiders and Trees”

Terror in the Enchanted Forest

This afternoon JJ wanted me to go with him while he ran some errands in the Enchanted Forest. We went into the garage, opened the big door, and then we saw it in the doorway right behind the car: The HUGE SCARY SPIDER. I… Continue Reading “Terror in the Enchanted Forest”

Before and After, Ending and Beginning

Just a few days ago–on Friday–we had our first snow of the year. EJ and I took Danny outside at about 11:30 p.m. and we had fun playing with the snow and the flashlights I had recently bought from Amazon. The flashlights only cost… Continue Reading “Before and After, Ending and Beginning”

A Minute in My Mind

There are some memes that appear on my Facebook timeline now and then that I really hate because although they can seem true, and may be somewhat true in some circumstances, I think they are mostly just blarney, especially if you think about them… Continue Reading “A Minute in My Mind”

Firsts

This morning I studied Hebrew with my friend again on Google+. We are probably two of the slowest Hebrew students ever, but we love it so much and want to learn it so much that I think God should just give us an “A”… Continue Reading “Firsts”

A Crazy Day in Michigan

When I wrote the other day about soon needing to exchange jackets for winter coats, I didn’t expect it to occur so quickly. Meteorologists are forecasting snow for our area this weekend, although I don’t think it’s going to be measurable. Meanwhile, today’s weather… Continue Reading “A Crazy Day in Michigan”

Aftermath

Last night JJ returned home from work in a very happy mood. “I love living up here. I really like my job!” he exclaimed. He says his co-workers are all extremely nice and friendly and helpful. Also, at a meeting that day he had… Continue Reading “Aftermath”

We’re Living, Living, Living in Northern Michigan

It began to rain last night and it has been raining off and on all day. I love how rain makes our forest appear wrapped in mist. The various weather changes the appearance of our forest from day to day–and even hour by hour.… Continue Reading “We’re Living, Living, Living in Northern Michigan”

A Colorful Day

As soon as I got out of bed this morning, I peeked out our bedroom curtain and saw the forest glowing with a golden light. It was beautiful. Overnight the trees of our Enchanted Forest have bloomed with color. The beauty is breathtaking and… Continue Reading “A Colorful Day”

America’s Best Scenic Autumn Drive

EJ has been told by his company that he can expect to work a lot overtime in the next few weeks, so we decided to get out and enjoy the fall colors while we still can. We invited JJ to go along with us… Continue Reading “America’s Best Scenic Autumn Drive”

Van Gogh in the Elevator

I had an eye exam on Monday. I was excited because it’s been a few years since my last eye exam, and a year or two ago my glasses got a small scratch on them which makes them hard to clean. No matter how… Continue Reading “Van Gogh in the Elevator”

The Gift of Autumn

Because my husband and son have different days off from work, I couldn’t celebrate my birthday (which is next week) with both of them at the same time. So I had a wonderful day celebrating my birthday with JJ on Friday and a wonderful… Continue Reading “The Gift of Autumn”

A Magical Day

My birthday is next week. The gift I usually ask for is a memory-making experience. We usually celebrate the weekend preceding my birthday and in the past we have gone to wild bird sanctuaries or cider mills or simply on drives through the beautiful… Continue Reading “A Magical Day”
