Wild, Wacky, Weather Award

Wow. Michigan gets some crazy weather at times, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a weekend with such wild, wacky weather like this one! With rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow, I think Michigan is deserving of a major Award. Yesterday morning I…

In The Midst of the Storm

I slept in late this morning, and while I slept EJ did most of my morning chores for me, which I thought was incredibly kind. I opened my eyes to a beautiful snow-covered world. I also woke up to no Internet. A couple hours…

Mixed-up Storm

Two days after her after her spay/hernia surgery, Hannah Joy was acting like her normal self. The vet said we have to try to keep her from running or jumping for ten days while her incision heals, which isn’t easy because she is exuberant…

Appointments

We had a very busy weekend. On Saturday we met a friend at a town that was between our house and his, although he had a longer drive then we did. He chose that particular town to meet because he wanted to go to…

Lovely Winter This Spring

“What a lovely Winter we are having this Spring!” (Facebook) After two days of heavy snow, yesterday was clear. However, today it’s back to snow again. EJ says it’s supposed to snow all weekend. Although this year I’m ready for Winter to leave and…

Oh, Spring, Where Art Thou?

I rode into work with EJ this morning so I could have the suburban to drive myself to physical therapy later in the afternoon. I was a bit stressed because I haven’t yet regained confidence in being able to drive after fracturing my hand….

Last Week

Last week was very difficult, but I am not free to write about most of it. I would appreciate prayers as we deal with difficult situations. A few weeks ago Kate, my occupational therapist, mentioned that she loved classic jelly beans, so I finally…

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…

Wibbly Wobbly

I’ve had two sessions this week with my occupational therapist to try to get more mobility in my injured hand. My sessions are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. The route to the OT takes us past the Bay, which is very beautiful. The…

Comic Relief

I haven’t been able to write in several days. Usually I don’t write much on the weekends because EJ and I are hanging out together. Here is what has been happening: It’s been snowing almost every day for the last week, and snow is…

Second Winter

Almost all our snow had melted away during days of temperatures reaching into the high 30s and 40s. It was really beginning to feel like Spring, even though I know that Winter likes to toy with us in March, dangling Spring-like days in front…

Hand Therapy

The weather has been very nice. The nighttime temperatures often dropped below 20, but the daytime temps rose into the high 30s and 40s. Our snow is mostly gone, but we are supposed to get several inches soon–tonight, I think. Yuck, I like winter,…

JJ’s Apartment (And Hannah’s Bedroom)

The plan was that JJ would drive to the house to pick up a few more of his possessions, and I would go with him so I could see his new apartment. Depending on timing and how man trips JJ made, either he would…

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…
