Floor & Fence

My body was so tired from all the work I did yesterday that I had trouble getting myself going this morning. After I drank the last cup of coffee and said goodbye to JJ, who went off to school, I managed to get myself… Continue Reading “Floor & Fence”

Shed & Windows

Yesterday the guy from Lowes came to build our new shed. I had never had a shed built before so I was kind of surprised that just one man came instead of a crew. He arrived a little after noon and worked on the… Continue Reading “Shed & Windows”

Thanksgiving

I meant to get on my computer and wish all my USA friends a Happy Thanksgiving! However, I was very busy preparing for our own Thanksgiving and I didn’t have time. So here’s a belated…   Wednesday I spent the day making pies. I… Continue Reading “Thanksgiving”

My Chore Boots

I have a chore coat. It is the old coat I wear when I work outside. It is an old green coat with a brown collar and cuffs lined with green and brown plaid. I’ve told EJ several times that I love my old… Continue Reading “My Chore Boots”

Turkeys and the Straw

Winter Race

I woke up very early on Tuesday morning–about 3-ish–and couldn’t go back to sleep. I wasn’t able to get a nap because it was an extremely busy day with many errands to run. I fed, watered, and let the chickens and ducks out, went… Continue Reading “Winter Race”

The Enchanted Library

I really enjoy the beauty of early mornings but the sun rises so early that if I didn’t have to get up to let the chickens and ducks outside, I would sleep right through the dawn. Instead, I get up early to let the… Continue Reading “The Enchanted Library”

Timey Wimey, Wibbly Wobbly

This morning I woke up and looked at the digital alarm clock to check the time. It said that it was 5:99 a.m. And then as I watched, it turned to 5:98…5:80… 5:40…5:99…I rubbed my eyes and looked again, and the clock was still… Continue Reading “Timey Wimey, Wibbly Wobbly”
