The Fridge

Fridays are usually our day to run errands–or to get tasks done at home. Today EJ ran a lot of errands while I worked at home. First thing this morning EJ went into town to buy a refrigerator. I had been looking for a… Continue Reading “The Fridge”

Whatchagot Chili

Monday I made Chili for lunch. Whenever I make Chili, we always have more than we can eat so I always have a lot of leftover chili for the next day’s meal. Sometimes I have too little leftover for both of us, so I… Continue Reading “Whatchagot Chili”

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”

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… Continue Reading “Speaker for the Dead”

…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… Continue Reading “…And Death”

Freezing Ordeal

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… Continue Reading “It’s BAAAAAACK…Mostly”

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… Continue Reading “Reading Through Michigan”

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… Continue Reading “Death & Destruction”

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… Continue Reading “JJ’s Apartment (And Hannah’s Bedroom)”

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… Continue Reading “The Hall of Justice”

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… Continue Reading “The Mattress: Conclusion”
