Expansive Dreams

I have found a new theme song. Unlike the song, though, I’m the one who gave the cold to EJ–after JJ gave it to me. Ugh. I’m so tired of being sick and cough, cough, coughing all the time!! We have lived in our… Continue Reading “Expansive Dreams”

Planting

We decided we ought to make the raised garden boxes less accessible to the ducks so Sunday morning I went out and dragged some of the old pallets that the previous owner had left into the duck pen. I stacked them two high and… Continue Reading “Planting”

Mercy to the Guilty

This is Day 366 of my sinus infection. Ok, not really. It’s actually been only a week and a half. However, it feels as if I’ve been sick for a year and a day. Breathing too deeply triggers fits of deep coughing.  And I feel… Continue Reading “Mercy to the Guilty”

The Xylophone

EJ went back to work today–although between his coughing and our uncomfortable bed, he didn’t get much sleep last night. He could barely walk this morning, but he couldn’t miss another day of work. I prayed for him constantly throughout the day. He made… Continue Reading “The Xylophone”

Feeling Mighty Low

I think yesterday–I can’t even remember what day it was…Sunday?–was the low point for me as far as this sinus infection goes. I felt weak and tired. I kept coughing deep wracking coughs and I couldn’t breathe through my nose at all. When I… Continue Reading “Feeling Mighty Low”

Sicker than a Dog

So I’ve been sitting here thinking “I feel sicker than a dog.” Then I thought that I have never seen a dog as sick as I am so, being who I am even when I’m sick,” I googled “sicker than a dog origin.” All… Continue Reading “Sicker than a Dog”

Sick Days

JJ is feeling much better. He went back to work on Wednesday. I don’t think he has worked since because we’ve had enough rain that he wasn’t needed. He can’t clean out campsites in the rain. EJ also went back to work on Wednesday… Continue Reading “Sick Days”

Another Busy Day

My guys both stayed home from work again today. EJ’s back was S-shaped, which means his back was complete out and he was in much pain. As soon as the pharmacy was opened, we went to pick up the prescription that his doctor had… Continue Reading “Another Busy Day”

Watermelon is for the Birds

Both my guys stayed home from work today. EJ suffers from chronic back pain because of an injury years ago. He always has pain, but sometimes it is tolerable and sometimes not. He’s been experiencing worse than normal pain for several weeks. Although he… Continue Reading “Watermelon is for the Birds”

Let Our Joy Last

JJ started his new job as a park ranger yesterday. Before he left home, he was both excited and nervous. I told him that he would do fine…and, of course, he did. He told us later that he loves the job. He said that… Continue Reading “Let Our Joy Last”

Curiosity

Yesterday the temperatures warmed up again–into the 60s–so I was able to open the windows. Yay! We are supposed to have sunshine and nice temperatures for the next several days. I like these temps because it’s warm enough to not have to wear coats,… Continue Reading “Curiosity”

Nancy Drew and The Matrix

I loved the Nancy Drew book series when I was a child. When I outgrew the books, I put all my Nancy Drew books in a large box to save for my daughter. I still have the books but I never had a daughter so… Continue Reading “Nancy Drew and The Matrix”

Decepticon

The night-time temperatures in our area have not consistently risen above the high 30s. The last couple of nights the temperatures dipped–into the low 30s and even the 20s. We’ve had had frost/freeze warnings. We turned our furnace back on. Although the overnight temperatures… Continue Reading “Decepticon”

The Matrix

The view out our window constantly changes and is always beautiful. I always feel as if the windows frame a living painting. Yesterday morning there was a wisp of morning fog circling the hills. It was awesome. The chickens always lay their eggs in… Continue Reading “The Matrix”

Rain-Soggied Straw

Yesterday I waited until the ground had a chance to dry a little, and then I went outside to work. I shovel some of the dirt from the raised bed into the wheelbarrow. When I had a generous amount, I mixed in the two… Continue Reading “Rain-Soggied Straw”
