A Funny Type of Breed

I’ve been working on my rock dams this week. My goal is to take one wheelbarrow load–a light load–of potato stones down the driveway to rebuild the dams to stop erosion. Yesterday I actually did two loads. Today I didn’t want to do any…

A Patch of Ice

First, JJ had his oncology appointment today and he is doing great. All the medical test results are wonderful. Me? I’m not doing so well. It snowed overnight. We got just enough snow to hide the ice. This afternoon I took Hannah with me to…

Weather, Propane, and Stuff

Sunny, Rain, Snow, Sunny, Rain, Snow. Warm, Cold, Warm, Cold. Melt, Freeze, Melt, Freeze. Our weather has been up and down and very changeable throughout January. We’ve had such warm temperatures that the snow melted and the chickens even came out of their coop…

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…

Transitioning

Yikes! I can’t believe that I haven’t written since January 29th! I have a lot of catching up to do. Mostly I didn’t write because I was very tired. I don’t think that I’ve had a good night’s sleep for more than a year….

January Thaw

I haven’t written for…a week or two? Life has been happening. JJ is back in his college classes. He really enjoys his classes. He is taking a law enforcement class, sociology, math and, I think, a psychology class. Almost every year Michigan has what…

Surviving October

October is usually my most favorite month. I love the vibrant colors of the trees and the pumpkins and other squashes. I love the wind making the leaves twirl and dance. I love the look of harvested fields. I love the sunshine highlighting the…

GPS Meltdown

JJ had his periodic appointment with his oncologist today to make sure he is still cancer free. I went with him because he doesn’t want to go to medical appointments alone–especially not to oncologists. I wouldn’t want to either. We’ve only been to this…

Daddy’s Gone A-Hunting

It’s looking very November. One afternoon last week EJ, Danny, and I walked through one of our little meadows and into the forest on our way back from the mailbox.  In the meadow we saw an area of flattened grass where EJ said the…

Aftermath

Last night JJ returned home from work in a very happy mood. “I love living up here. I really like my job!” he exclaimed. He says his co-workers are all extremely nice and friendly and helpful. Also, at a meeting that day he had…

Van Gogh in the Elevator

I had an eye exam on Monday. I was excited because it’s been a few years since my last eye exam, and a year or two ago my glasses got a small scratch on them which makes them hard to clean. No matter how…

PTSD

Tuesday morning Danny asked to be let out, so I let him out and then went to get my shoes on. I don’t like to just leave him out by himself too long because I don’t want him wandering off and getting lost in…

Battles

Last week we had several coldish, rainy days. I like both, although I imagined the rain water nibbling at our driveway. The driveway is the only less-than-perfect thing about our new house. Everything else we absolutely love. It would be nice if we could…

Just Breathe

Today we had a busy day scheduled. And then the day got busier. Before I talk about our day, I’d like to describe something else. Be patient. It relates. I have found that when a person describes difficulties or abuse, people often seem to…
