Shades of Spring

Today it is rainy. It is a steady all day soaking sort of rain. It is supposed to rain through Tuesday, I think. We could get a couple of inches. I’m thankful we are not getting as much rain as states like Oklahoma are…

Odd Jobs

We have had some very nice weather with temperatures up in the low to mid-70s. EJ tells me that people in other states don’t talk about the weather very much, but in Michigan the weather can change from day to day–or even moment to…

Danny the Thief

My dear friend sent me some adorable cat slippers that she had come across and bought for me. The slippers are have hard soles–very important because I hate stepping in spilled liquid or melted snow and getting my socks wet. In the winter, I…

The Old Hot Tub

I had a list of chores I wanted to get done today. I had laundry to wash today. Since the day was beautifully sunny, I decided to hang them on the clothesline to drive. I got a little chilled hanging up wet clothes. The…

Spring Blessings

Yesterday evening after supper I went to the store where JJ works to buy groceries. JJ was working and, as he often does, he noticed that I was in the store so he can up to say “hi!” I noticed that he had a…

Disappearing Duck

As soon as EJ leaves for work every morning, I go open the coop doors to let the ducks and chickens out. The ducks are at the front of the coop so they get let out first, and then I go open the little…

Cuddles’ Favorite Game

Because my jury duty was canceled (happy dance!) I spent the afternoon digging up more tiger lilies from around the big rocks. They really have spread in that area so although I have dug up about four wheelbarrows full of lilies, there are still…

Whoo Hoo!

We had a really nice weekend. It rained all day Saturday through Sunday morning. I’m not sure exactly how much rain we got, but nearby areas ranged from 1.43 to 2.23 inches. The temperatures were very warm–up in the high 70s!! Sunday morning EJ…

Happy Chickens

Most of the time JJ has to be to work at 3 p.m., but today he was scheduled to begin work at noon. After JJ left, I considered working to enlarge the chickens’ outside pen. However, I knew that once I began working on…

The Ducks’ New Pen

After a beautiful weekend, the weather turned rainy Sunday night and cooled throughout Monday. On Tuesday we even had periods of snow, but it only lasted a couple of minutes at a time and nothing stayed on the ground–unlike Michigan’s Upper Peninsula which just…

Duck Delight

The weather was very nice this weekend. On Saturday it was sunny and the temperature was about 60. We put in the screens and opened up all the windows. We also got out our patio chairs (I had the table already set up) and…

Spring Things

This last weekend the sun shone and the temperatures were very warm–up into the 60s. I almost put the screens back in and opened the windows, but I didn’t. I was busy with other projects, and I know that we can still get snow….
