The Heater Challenge

Every now and then, I read about a “Challenge” that is going around. Some Challenges are downright dangerous, such as the “Dancing Outside a Moving Car Challenge” or the “Tide Pod Challenge.” Others are fun, silly, creative, or raise money or awareness–such as 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…

A Dalek Holiday

  This year Christmas and Hanukkah occur at the same time. We wish you all a Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah, filled with love and laughter! EJ is off work for the holidays until after the new year. JJ had to work until…

My Chore Boots

I have a chore coat. It is the old coat I wear when I work outside. It is an old green coat with a brown collar and cuffs lined with green and brown plaid. I’ve told EJ several times that I love my old…

The Harem of Cuddles Duck

This morning we had quite an adventure. You may remember that after cute little Cuddles and Peeper grew up, we learned that drakes (male ducks) are really terrible sex maniacs. We’ve read that they need 3-5 females to satisfy them. If they don’t have…

Weekend Projects

This weekend EJ and I discussed projects that we need to accomplish and when they need to get done. We have three vehicles but to save money we have insurance on only two of them. EJ and JJ both need vehicles to get to…

Michigan Bucket List

I think I am addicted to sledding. Whenever EJ snowblows the driveway, the sledding gets better because there is no fluffy snow to slow me down. Last weekend the sledding got faster and faster and faster and by Monday it was so fast that…

A Winter Date

Several nights ago EJ woke me at about 4 a.m. “I have something to show you. Come look,” he whispered. We quietly sneaked into the living room. There were two deer just outside the window exploring the bird feeders. We tried to be quiet,…

Snow Fun

Here in the North, we’ve had snowstorms and lake effect snow. It’s been snowing constantly for days–meteorologists say that we’ve gotten 1-4 inches of snow per hour at times.  I’m not sure exactly how many inches of snow we’ve gotten. In the unshoveled areas near the…

Of Tears and Laughter

Today I am going to risk the possibility of stepping on a few toes. I do not intend to offend, and I will try to write with compassion and understanding, but this is a topic that I have thought about (and even struggled with)…

The End of 2015

We survived the big storm that hit earlier in the week. The lights flicked a couple of times but we didn’t lose power. Yay! A snowplow tore our mailbox off the post and flung it into the snow so yesterday morning EJ put his…

A Magical Day

My birthday is next week. The gift I usually ask for is a memory-making experience. We usually celebrate the weekend preceding my birthday and in the past we have gone to wild bird sanctuaries or cider mills or simply on drives through the beautiful…

Turkeys, Deer, and Boats

Monday night JJ and I had a bit of a scare. JJ went looking for his beloved cat, Luke, and couldn’t find him so he asked me to help search. I reminded JJ that many times cats find odd little places to sleep and…

Saruman’s Spies

EJ had some physically difficult days at work this last week, and he was utterly exhausted, so I have encouraged him to rest this weekend. Yesterday I made challah bread for the first time in a long time, and I fixed a beautiful Shabbat…

Here There Be Spiders

This morning after I drank coffee and ate breakfast, I went upstairs and mudded the drywall for a bit. I really don’t mind this task. It’s sort of fun. When I came downstairs, Danny asked to be let outside. I headed for the back…
