Start, Stop, and Continue

After breakfast this morning, EJ and I got out our whiteboard and we sat down for a “staff meeting.” He called it a “Start, Stop, and Continue Meeting,” meaning we discussed which new goals and projects we wanted to start, which we were stopping…

EJ’s Autumn Birthday

Yesterday was EJ’s birthday. Well, not exactly. His birthday is actually in early Spring when the trees are still bare and there is often snow on the ground, but he declared that yesterday was his birthday because autumn is such a beautiful season with…

Ambush at Barker Creek

Today we needed to get fencing so we can protect our apple trees from hungry deer this winter. We decided to go to a different TSC in a different town than we usually go to so we could stop at the Cops & Donuts…

Birthday Adventure

Today is my birthday. I think that my birthday occurs in the most beautiful month of the year, and my annual gift of taking a long drive to enjoy the autumn color is the most awesome gift imaginable. We left home at 9 a.m….

The Gift

Today is a rainy day, and once again I’m not sure what tasks to work on. Most of my tasks are outdoor ones that require a sunny day–or, at least, a rainless one. I probably could find something to do inside the house, but…

Small Town Outlaws vs Shipwreck Alley

In the last couple of years, EJ’s friend has become interested in roller derby. He thinks it’s a fun sport, he likes the action and camaraderie between players and teams, and he’s amazed at the team members’ skating ability. Because he enjoys the sport…

Empty Nest

Well, JJ received the keys to his new apartment today! The new apartment is in the same town where EJ works so he stopped to look at it when he got out of work. I have to wait until tomorrow to see it because…

Spring Fever

Last night I told EJ that if he would make sure the ducks and chickens had plenty of food and water when he shut them in the coop at night, I thought I could let them out in the mornings. EJ is always short…

Seasons

We had a bit of rain on Saturday night and strong winds through Sunday afternoon. We had just a bit of rain–not like the flooding rains that areas were getting in southern Michigan. It’s interesting living in a forest when the winds is strong….

Independence Day

My life is normally simple and quiet–I like it that way–but lately I think it is boring, at least to write or read about. With a broken arm, there is not much I can do. The most exciting part of a day involves being…

Superheroes and Magic Tables

My hand doctor told me to make sure I move my fingers so they don’t stiffen up so I am trying to type two-handed. I think that typing provides good finger exercises. But my left arm feels like a heavy block of wood and…

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…

Miss Meadows

EJ arrived home safely from his hunting trip. I’m glad he gets to enjoy hunting with his friend, but I’m always glad when he gets home. The house feels empty without him. Today was an extremely busy day. I got up at the usual…

November Fun

Today was EJ’s extra birthday celebration so he got to decide how to spend the day. It’s rather fun calling our weekend adventures our “birthday celebrations” because it focuses us on taking turns celebrating each other and it feels more special than just thinking…

The Quiet Area

Today we celebrated EJ’s birthday. His official birthday isn’t until the end of March, but we have so many fun adventures on my birthday, which is in early October, that we decided we would take turns celebrating our birthdays throughout the year. I mean,…
