Celebrations

Friday, as usual, was our errand day. We were planning to buy some straw bales for the chicken coop. I called a farm store and a hardware store where we have bought bales in previous years, but EJ said they were much too expensive….

Elk-ish Plans

Years ago, I bought a couple little cacti at a store–probably Walmart. They were just tiny little plants in tiny little pots when I bought them, but over the years they have grown taller and taller, and I’ve had to transplant them into bigger…

Survival Mode

There are times that the days fly by very quickly and then I have to catch up, trying to remember what I did over the last few days so I can write about them.  This is one of those times. EJ used to work…

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…

Therapy Musings

Yesterday I had physical therapy again. I really love the journey there, which follows the Bay for a while. I know, I know, I’ve written frequently that the color of the water changes often, defending on the season, weather, time of day, etc., but…

5 Stickers On My Shirt

EJ and I enjoyed a quiet weekend. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we watched Darby O’Gill and the Little People at Amazon video.  When I was a child, it was our tradition to watch it when it aired on TV every March 17, and when…

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,…

Birthday Adventure (#2)

This morning EJ and I were awakened by cats jumping on us. They would leap from one of us to the other. They were trying to wake us up so I would feed them canned food, which I divide among them all. They were…

Birthday Adventure (#1)

It was supposed to rain all day, so I expected a quiet day at home–which didn’t bother me any because I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke at 3 a.m. with pain from sciatica. I took some Tylenol but still had trouble sleeping….

October Dilemma

Madeline, our new outside cat, is settling in nicely. I don’t worry about her comings and goings now that I know that she knows where “home” is. I always know when she’s in the garage because when she hears me, she immediately pops up…

Spring…Sort Of

We are still getting warm and cold and warm and cold temperatures. The temps will rise up into the 50s and then plunge overnight down into the single digits. Most of our snow is gone, but I’ve heard that we could get snow/sleet and…
