Great Crested Flycatcher

Yesterday I finished the Peppermint Candy Coasters that a woman ordered from Teric’s Treasures. I boxed it and was going to mail it this morning. I had to get to the post office and back before JJ had to leave for work at 9:30…

Hundred-Acre Woods

With my Premium WordPress upgrade, I get access to a lot of new layouts. I was really drawn to this one, which enables me to give my guests the option of going to the blog or my store, and which I think has a…

The Plunge

So I took the plunge and upgraded my WordPress Blog! The upgrade gives me a lot of new features, including new templates and fonts. I will be playing around with them over the next few days so expect surprising changes when you visit. If…

Our Kind of Fun

Usually we make sure we have quiet, restful Saturdays, but this Saturday became busier than we had planned. We were going to make a quick trip to our favorite nursery to buy Strawberries, Peppermint, Spearmint, Chocolate Mint, Chamomile, and Borage plants. I had seen…

Watermelon is for the Birds

Both my guys stayed home from work today. EJ suffers from chronic back pain because of an injury years ago. He always has pain, but sometimes it is tolerable and sometimes not. He’s been experiencing worse than normal pain for several weeks. Although he…

Odd Jobs

We have had some very nice weather with temperatures up in the low to mid-70s. EJ tells me that people in other states don’t talk about the weather very much, but in Michigan the weather can change from day to day–or even moment to…

The Ducks’ New Pen

After a beautiful weekend, the weather turned rainy Sunday night and cooled throughout Monday. On Tuesday we even had periods of snow, but it only lasted a couple of minutes at a time and nothing stayed on the ground–unlike Michigan’s Upper Peninsula which just…

The Midnight Journey to the Magic Box

My supply of pillow forms was getting low, so I recently ordered more. A pillow form is an uncovered or plainly decorated pillow that is used in home decor and crafts projects. I use pillow forms to make the decorative pillows, such as the…

Home Sweet Coop

Sunday EJ and I worked all day to turn the shed into a nice home for the chickens and the ducks. We began to work as soon as we had eaten breakfast, and we continued working until dusk. Ever since we ordered the shed,…

Tiny Little Buttons

I woke up super early this morning–about the same time as EJ got up for work. When Danny realized that I was awake, he told me that he wanted to go out. He often wants out as soon as I get up in the…

Can You See?

One reading notified me that she was unable to access my last post. If you are also have this problem, or if the post is not displaying correctly, please let me know. Thanks!

Sensitivity

The weather has been gorgeous all week with blue skies and breezy winds. After several cool days and frost-warning nights, the temperatures rose again into the low 80s. Still, even with higher temps, there is a strong feeling of autumn. We finished filling in…

The Journey to the Enchanted Forest

We are all in various stages of this respiratory infection. It’s been a terrible sickness in which we’ve had nightmares, periods of chills and sweats, terrible deep coughs, loss of voice, lethargy, and other symptoms. After a month, EJ is mostly healthy, although he…

Offer

I am beginning my second week of being sick with the nasty respiratory infection that EJ gave me. He was sick with it for at least two weeks, so I kind of expect the same. I am very congested, swimmy-headed, and tired, and I…

A Tale of Two Stories

This morning EJ and I finalized financial matters so we have money for the move to the Emerald City. EJ also selected a motel and reserved a room for next week when he begins his new job. He is going without us because it…
