A Little Bit of Everything

A week ago–Tuesday and Wednesday–our temperatures rose to a summery 80 (F) degrees. EJ and I could no longer resist putting the screens in so we could open the windows and let the fresh breeze blow out the winter’s stale air. I wore a… Continue Reading “A Little Bit of Everything”

The Tracker of Everything

I am a tracker. Yep. Me. I am a tracker in both a conventional sense (sort of) and an unconventional sense. I’m not a professional in any sense of the word. Maybe I should call myself an “observer” or a “spotter” but I like… Continue Reading “The Tracker of Everything”

Peanut Delight

A little more than ten years ago, we started to celebrate Passover instead of Easter because we, personally, found the symbolism more meaningful to our Christian faith. (Passover was March 27 this year.) However, we feel it’s up to each family to choose how… Continue Reading “Peanut Delight”

DIY Experiments

We’ve had one day of 60 (F) degrees and the next day it snows. Up and down. That’s why I have a wait and see attitude about Spring. I take each day as it comes. Last week EJ scheduled an appointment to get our… Continue Reading “DIY Experiments”

Weather or Not

EJ says he worked with a guy once who lived in for a while in–I think–California. The guy said that no one in there talked much about the weather. Probably because their weather is nice most of the time? Here in Michigan, our weather… Continue Reading “Weather or Not”

The World of No ‘Poo

Last night I heard coyotes. Usually, I can’t hear them when I’m in the house. I only hear them occasionally when I take Hannah Joy at night. However, last night they woke me up with their yowling. Hannah Joy heard them too. She went… Continue Reading “The World of No ‘Poo”

Happiness Shampoo

Last week we had several warm days that melted almost all our snow. The only bit of “winter” that I saw was a patch of ice in front of the garage door leading into the back yard. I think it’s the last to melt… Continue Reading “Happiness Shampoo”

Northern Warmth

Friday EJ drove over to his friend’s house on the other side of the state to help him begin tidying up the place. EJ’s friend has been considering a major move. His Dad died not long ago so I think there is no longer… Continue Reading “Northern Warmth”

Winter’s Beauty

Last week Texas was hit with very unusual weather cold and snowy weather. Many lost their power, which means they had no heat. Because they live in a (usually) warmer climate, people in the south don’t own warm clothes or have alternate sources of… Continue Reading “Winter’s Beauty”

Frozen Hair and Warm Paws

We have had a very mild winter this year. We have snow, of course, because we live in the north, but it has accumulated by a few inches at a time rather than feet. We haven’t had as many frigid days as usual so… Continue Reading “Frozen Hair and Warm Paws”

2020/2021

Last year at this time, I was declaring that 2020 would be a year in which we would enjoy a year free of toxic/abusive people, a year of peace and quiet and enjoyment, a year in which we would work on re ccovery and… Continue Reading “2020/2021”

HOLIDAYS

I hope you all had a very nice Christmas despite the challenges of this year. We have had a Koselig holiday season. Koselig is a concept that is deeply rooted in Norwegian culture. It is the feeling of coziness and being comfortable. It is about… Continue Reading “HOLIDAYS”

Merry Christmas

Whatever is beautiful. Whatever is meaningful. Whatever brings you peace and joy. May it be yours this Christmas holiday and throughout the coming year.

Hanukkah-mas-ary

I swear that time has become timey-wimey-wibbly-wobbly. I blink and then find that a month has gone by without me noticing. It feels as if time speeds up faster and faster as we get older. I have mostly spent the last month crocheting gifts… Continue Reading “Hanukkah-mas-ary”

Happy Thanksgiving

It is early, the sky is still quite dark, but before the day gets busy, I would like to wish all of my fellow Americans a very happy Thanksgiving Day. And everyone reading from other parts of the world, I hope you have a… Continue Reading “Happy Thanksgiving”
