Speaker for the Dead

EJ’s Mom’s funeral was held on Saturday. Except the for reason for the trip, the 10-hour drive (5 hours to and from) through beautiful scenery was very pleasant with good conversation. Hannah Joy was babysat by her Favorite Uncle, who cuddled her and took…

…And Death

I wrote in my last post that this week has brought new life into our lives, with ten incredibly cute chicks. They are noticeably growing larger every day. In addition to life, this week has also brought us death. EJ’s Mom suffered from dementia…

Freezing Ordeal

It is so f-f-f-freezing cold here this week! As I begin this post (at 7:30 am, sipping a cup of hot coffee), it is 1 (f) degrees. the windchill makes it feel much colder. When I took Hannah Joy outside this morning, the cold…

It’s BAAAAAACK…Mostly

This morning I got a call that my laptop was ready! Yay! I immediately drove to the computer repair shop and pick it up. The guy who repaired it said, “Did you spill coffee in your computer or something?” He noticed that the disk drive…

Reading Through Michigan

Today was a slower day, which I needed after helping EJ put up the fence around the garden yesterday. I couldn’t have worked outside even if I had wanted to because it rained off and on all day and was very humid. Thankfully, we…

Death & Destruction

Yesterday the temperature climbed all the way up into the low 80s! That was nice, although a wee bit too hot. I wouldn’t mind a balance between frigid cold and sweltering hot. I saw a few tiny spots of snow yesterday afternoon. It’s all…

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…

Whoo Hoo!

We had a really nice weekend. It rained all day Saturday through Sunday morning. I’m not sure exactly how much rain we got, but nearby areas ranged from 1.43 to 2.23 inches. The temperatures were very warm–up in the high 70s!! Sunday morning EJ…

The Hall of Justice

Today JJ and I went to The Hall of Justice. Although we did not see Superman, Wonder Woman, or Batman, we did see plenty of heroes and villains. Seriously. This is completely 100% true. The Hall of Justice is the name of the district…

The Mattress: Conclusion

So, as I already wrote the other day, our mattress was scheduled to arrive between 9:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. on Thursday. JJ and I waited near the entrance of our driveway for several hours so we could transport the mattress the rest of…

The Mattress

So today was the BIG day that our new mattress was scheduled to arrive!!! Yay! EJ has been sleeping on JJ’s old twin mattress while I slept on the couch. The couch is very comfy for sitting on, but not as comfortable as the…

The Enchanted Library

I really enjoy the beauty of early mornings but the sun rises so early that if I didn’t have to get up to let the chickens and ducks outside, I would sleep right through the dawn. Instead, I get up early to let the…

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…

Phantom Orchestra

I’ve had a strange, unique, and interesting experience for several years. I didn’t tell anyone–not even EJ–until a month or so ago because it just sounded too weird. After I told EJ, he couldn’t figure out why it was happening any more than I…

Cops & Donuts

We have been driving downstate every weekend to finish emptying the old house before we sell it. On the days we drive down, we usually get up at 5 a.m. drive for hours, work really hard at the old house, and then drive hours…
