Life in the Enchanted Forest

I’ve begun drying my herbs. I actually think I almost began drying too late and I should have begun earlier in the summer but it’s difficult to even think about drying when the weather is summer hot, especially because I use dehydrators, which tend…

Rain, Rain, And Other Things

I started to write this post on Saturday evening, but EJ and I decided to have a campfire out in our yard instead. I’m only now finding the time to continue my interrupted post. In fact, I have repeatedly tried to work on this…

Stormy Anniversary

We usually keep informed about the weather because….well, we really enjoy watching the weather. Knowing the forecasts helps me decide what to wear for the day, or whether or not I should water the garden, or whether to expect severe storms. When I was…

Numbers Six and Seven

We still didn’t have the Suburban back from the repair shop so I had to take him to work again this morning. Well, actually he drives to work and I drive back home. I get home just in time to hand JJ the keys…

Birdwatching at the Park

The suburban is still in the repair shop. We took JJ to work this morning so that if the repair shop told us that the suburban was done, we could go pick it up. They didn’t call, which means that Monday I will have…

Oncology Results

Today was a loonnng day. I didn’t sleep very well last night because I was anxious and praying so much for JJ. I had to take EJ to work again early this morning. Again, it’s always a pleasure to drive anywhere around here because…

Chauffeuring

The suburban needed some work done on it so we dropped it off at the repair shop last night after EJ had eaten a quick supper. The repairs are going to cost a lot (ouch), but thankfully we have just enough money to pay…

The “Bird That Cries With Grief”

Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn, and you will. ~ Vernon Howard The highlight of my day is walking down our long winding driveway to get the mail. I feel as if I am walking through an art…

He Refreshes My Soul

Last Friday I went with JJ to the hospital for his blood draw, which he needed in preparation for his visit to the oncologist this Friday. The hospital always gets him in really quickly. He was called back to the lab within a couple…

Gang of Thieves

Early yesterday evening I looked out the window and saw two eggs lying on the grass. The ducks do have regular nest areas where they lay their eggs, but sometimes they just drop an egg wherever. I don’t want the eggs to attract predators…

Go To Bed!

The turkey flock returned last night at around 7:30 p.m. I was really excited because they were coming right up to the deck. I was eager to see how close they would come and I had my camera out, videoing their approach, as they came…

The Flock, the Toad, and 3 Pairs of Jeans

This past weekend was not highly productive, but it was enjoyable. I really needed to get some new jeans so Sunday EJ and I went to Meijer’s. For those who have never heard of Meijer’s, here are some fun facts: Meijer was founded in…

The Alien Among Us

It’s a rainy day. The National Weather Service warned that we could have scattered thunderstorms and 1-3 inches of rain–or even more in some areas. For several hours this morning we just had a steady light rain and then the rain stopped. I think…

Tuesday EJ and moved stuff away from one section of the wall in the garage and then EJ began building shelves to hold all his pieces of lumber. He is going to build several shelves so that he can sort the lumber according to…

My Mouse-Pelt Purse

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! The main project that I’ve hoped to accomplish this summer is getting the garage organized so that EJ has space to be creative. It’s been tough to find a weekend to work on it because we’ve had so much rain this…
