High Pressure

It felt as if it had been a long time since I’ve posted anything and I was going to reassure you that I’m really not ignoring you all, but then I saw that it has only been four days since my last post, which…

Wintumn

I currently have many different coats in our laundry room, ranging from light to heavy. I have a hoodie jacket, a warm lined hoodie jacket, a warmer lined windbreaker, and two winter coats–one for every day and one that is nicer. Oh, I also…

A Hint of Autumn

Last week several mornings started out with heavy fog. Once the fog dissipated, the skies were very blue–the deep vivid blue that occurs only in the autumn. The trees are just beginning to get some color. The temperature has been both cool and hot…

Chickens and Other Critters

I feel as if I am moving very slooooowly this week. I’m getting a few tasks done, but slooooowly. If we had been real homesteaders, we would have butchered our ducks to eat. By “we,” I actually mean EJ. I was born and raised in a…

Life & Death

EJ had a doctor’s appointment Monday. His doctor is close to the company where he works so he always just goes on his lunch hour and then returns to work. His doctor threatened that he needs to lose 15 pounds by October or she…

The Biker Bees

Our son JJ stopped by yesterday to pick up something I had printed off for him. He doesn’t have a  printer of his own yet. We rarely see him, but that’s ok. He is busy with work and his girlfriend, establishing a life of…

Seen and Unseen

Sunday afternoon EJ went into the garden while I gathered duck and chicken eggs. He picked a bowl of green beans. Yay! I don’t know how to can. I remember my Mom having a large garden when I was a young child, but I…

The North Post

Yesterday as soon as EJ left for work, I quickly took my shower and ate breakfast because EJ had told me that the septic guys were expected to arrive before 8:30 a.m. I waited as the hours passed and they still hadn’t arrived so…

The Porcupine

Friday night I didn’t sleep well at all so I was very tired on Saturday. Plus, it was very hot and humid. It was a day of doing almost nothing. EJ did more than I did. He cooked spaghetti for supper with a delicious…

Heat Wave

I hope everyone in the USA had a wonderful Independence Day! We had a quiet, uneventful holiday, which is just the way we like it. Both EJ and I are introverts who are re-energized by beauty, quiet, peace, nature, and animals. We don’t like…

Holes

Sunday evening we had a bit of a storm. It wasn’t that severe, but we did get a little bit of rain. It quickly moved on and left a beautiful double rainbow behind. Monday was cooler than the previous two days had been. It…

Hannah’s Ice Bone

We didn’t want to go outside in the brutal afternoon heat so EJ and I waited until about 7 p.m. yesterday evening  before we walked Hannah–with Josette following–down the driveway to get the mail.  On the way back to the house, I noticed a…

The Bumblebee and Me

I am so freakin’ gonna die this weekend! I can barely tolerate temperatures in the high 70s. I don’t know how I will endure temperatures that feel like they are close to 100. Because it’s going to be so scorching hot this weekend, I’ve…

The Delivery

It obviously rained overnight although there was only a light rain falling when I woke up this morning. That soon ended as well, although the day continued to have dark gray clouds and a feeling of dampness in the air. As usual, I stumbled…

Chocolate Mint Tea

During the week, I always get up at 6 a.m. when EJ needs to get up to get ready for work. Often he wakes up before his alarm goes off so he gets up, drinks coffee, and opens all the windows so the morning…
