Month: December 2015

The End of 2015

We survived the big storm that hit earlier in the week. The lights flicked a couple of times but we didn’t lose power. Yay! A snowplow tore our mailbox off the post and flung it into the snow so yesterday morning EJ put his…

Storm Prep

For the last few days we’ve heard that a big storm was headed our way. In fact, there has been nasty weather through most of the country with tornadoes and flooding to the south and snow and ice in the north.  What a mess….

Winter Storm

I am very thankful that the high winds caused us to lose our power on December 24-26 because it motivated us to buy a propane heater and a generator so that we are all set for Monday and Tuesday when the weather is supposed…

The Big Bad Wolf

At the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, a huge wind storm blew in. It buffeted our house, reminding me of the Big Bad Wolf who huffed and puffed to blow the house down. Our house didn’t blow down but sometime in the night…

Fairy Tales

Many good things happened this week that I have wanted to share, but I have been busy and haven’t taken the time. I have been spending most of my time crocheting items to sell at Teric’s Treasures, my Etsy store. I am super proud of…

The First Night

I have desperately needed to get a hair cut but I have dreaded trying to find new hair stylists here in the north. I really miss Bob and Linda, a husband and wife who have cut our hair since JJ was very young. They have…

Life on the Run

This was one of those absolutely crazy days that feels as if life is a comedy routine. It was running here, dropping EJ there, dropping JJ there, picking up EJ. It was sort of funny. Both EJ and JJ had appointments they had to…

Anniversary

Today was my and EJ’s 25th wedding anniversary. Anniversaries are always a time to reflect on memories of the years we’ve spent together: Pleasant and difficult times, laughter and tears, joys and sorrows. I think the card EJ gave me really describes our marriage:…
