Month: December 2017

Winter Bubbles

Happy New Year’s! It’s hard to believe that it’s already (almost) 2018. I remember when we were kids, my siblings and I would calculate how completely ancient we would be in the year 2000. I remember all the hoopla as 2000 arrived–what with the…

Hannah Joy’s Enchanted Collar

We took Hannah Joy to the veterinarian yesterday afternoon. The vet checked her over, gave her a couple vaccines, and answered our questions about feeding her. This vet works closely with the county animal shelter, which is just down the street, so she was…

Holiday Week

This week is zooming by. I wouldn’t have minded if it had slowed down a bit so we could savor EJ being home. It didn’t, and it’s already Friday. Wednesday EJ finally got his new eye glasses. He chose bolder glasses for the first…

Snowy Days

I hope everyone had a tremendous Christmas! After we moved to Northern Michigan, we started a new tradition of going to the theater to watch the latest Star Wars movie on Christmas day. We were all set to do it again this year, but…

Grandma’s Feather Bed (And Darth Luke)

I hope each of you have a restful, peaceful, and delightful Christmas Day! Last night when EJ and I got into bed, Hannah Joy jumped into bed between us. Ah, well, we let her. I’m not sure we could have prevented her, but we…

Introducing Hannah Joy

Despite my greatest efforts, I was unable to resist temptation. I gave in. I failed miserably….well, to be honest, I actually failed joyfully. Yesterday our local animal shelter posted at Facebook that they would be open for adoptions from 9 a.m. to noon on…

Life at the Post

I took a beautiful photo of Josette sitting on the gate post in the blue-ish early morning light. I am totally in love with sweet, beautiful Josette. I am delighted at how she joins me each time I go out to care for the…

Pet Craving

Yesterday a group of JJ’s friends came over to go sledding on our driveway. There were five adults and two kids. JJ said that there would have been more but some of his friends couldn’t make it. They seemed like nice young people. I’m…

A Sweet December Weekend

Friday morning I snowblowed the driveway in hopes that the mail lady would deliver packages that were scheduled to arrive. I worked hard and did a good job. As soon as I finished, I walked down to the mailbox. The mail was already there,…

Winter Magic

Yesterday JJ chauffeured me around to complete various errands. It was snowing quite hard and the roads were snow-covered and slippery at times. Our first stop was to the hospital in a nearby town to pick up my new eye glasses. I think it’s…

Bubbles in the Winter – And Other Stuff

Tuesday morning after EJ had left for work, after I had eaten breakfast, and after I had showered and my wet hair had dried, I put on my coat, hat, boots, and mittens and bravely went out to snowblow the driveway.  It required courage…

Drinking Coffee On A Snowy Morning

I’m sitting in my chair sipping my coffee as I watch the birds at the feeder. I love watching the birds at the feeder in the winter. I don’t put the feeders out in warmer months because they can attract bears so I wait…

Winter Has Arrived!

I think winter has finally come to stay. We had 4-6 inches of snow over night. It snowed all day today and I think more snow is on the way. With all the snow, I decided I ought to snowblow the driveway this morning….

Murdick’s and the Mall

December 1 (Friday) was EJ and my 27th anniversary. We were going to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday and I was going to plan something awesomely fun because there have been many years when we weren’t able to do much to celebrate. A time…

Dog-Gone Memories

Today we are grieving Danny. His loss has left a painful hole in our hearts. We are flooded with memories: Every now and then when JJ was  younger, he and I used to stop at a store in a nearby town called Soldan’s. It primarily…
