This Little Light of Mine

At the end of 2019, I decided, determined, resolved, that the year 2020 would be a year of healing, rebirth, and rediscovery. I am determined to have no toleration of toxic behaviors. I am resolved to pursue a life of peace and joy, making… Continue Reading “This Little Light of Mine”

From 19 to 20

It was back to work for EJ today. He had last weekend off, as usual, then worked two days, then had two days off, and now is working another two days before the weekend. I am now all messed up about which day it… Continue Reading “From 19 to 20”

Chicks & Things

People who have the INFJ personality type tend to be writers. The article, “Why Do So Many INFJs Want to Write,” explains it this way: INFJs are complex, deep thinkers with a keen insight into how people think and feel, so we’re not afraid… Continue Reading “Chicks & Things”

Meddlesome

I don’t know if any of you have ever taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Tests? They are free online. I’m sure some people may think it’s all baloney, but both EJ and I find that our personality types describe us extremely and eerily accurately. I… Continue Reading “Meddlesome”

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”

The Year of Sea Change

I’m a little late wishing everyone a Happy New Year, but I hope everyone’s new year is off to a good start. Our New Year arrived in a snowstorm, dumping almost a foot of snow on us. It’s the most snow we’ve gotten this… Continue Reading “The Year of Sea Change”

Goodbye 2018

It has been a long time since I have posted. As 2018 draws to a close, I thought it would be a good time to update you all on the ending of our year. I’m not sorry that 2018 is ending because it has… Continue Reading “Goodbye 2018”

Distortions

Friday the hospital called EJ to ask him questions about his health in preparation for his surgery on Monday. These are the same questions his doctor asked him during his pre-op appointment on Thursday and no doubt EJ will be asked the same questions… Continue Reading “Distortions”

Writing

EJ’s primary care physician sent him to a specialist who can remove the splinter from his hand so he can have his MRI. We met with the specialist early Wednesday afternoon. I was surprised that he is a plastic surgeon. I had expected someone… Continue Reading “Writing”

Words and Things

Today is a rainy day. Yesterday the National Weather Service predicted a 100% chance of rain for today. Earlier this morning they said there was a 90% chance of rain, and later they downgraded it to an 80% chance of rain. I think the… Continue Reading “Words and Things”

Where Your Nose Begins

We had quite a bit of rain this morning, or rather yesterday morning–it’s after midnight here–and I was very tired from a sleepless night, so I wrote much of the day. Most of the time I write about our simple life in Northern Michigan.… Continue Reading “Where Your Nose Begins”

It’s Not Your Fault

I was up until 4 a.m. writing my last post. I was up until around 1 a.m., I think, working on this post, until I was so tired that I finally decided I was too tired to think and should get some sleep. I… Continue Reading “It’s Not Your Fault”

Let My Heart Be Broken

Today was rather cloudy and gloomy–and later in the afternoon it began to rain. It was just as well because EJ has been quite miserable as he battles some sort of respiratory infection. It’s easier to rest on gloomy days than nice, bright, sunny… Continue Reading “Let My Heart Be Broken”

A Bit of Chaos

This week I have added preparing the living room for installing the new flooring to my list of tasks. We are removing the carpet ourselves because we want to fix any problems there might be before the installation people show up. We were told that… Continue Reading “A Bit of Chaos”
