A Colorful Day

As soon as I got out of bed this morning, I peeked out our bedroom curtain and saw the forest glowing with a golden light. It was beautiful. Overnight the trees of our Enchanted Forest have bloomed with color. The beauty is breathtaking and…

Van Gogh in the Elevator

I had an eye exam on Monday. I was excited because it’s been a few years since my last eye exam, and a year or two ago my glasses got a small scratch on them which makes them hard to clean. No matter how…

Fireworks

Last weekend’s grueling trip south took a lot out of us, so I have not taken on any huge projects this week…like painting rooms. Instead, I’ve limited myself to unpacking a box or two or three a day in addition to regular chores like…

Autumn Harvest

This morning I told EJ that I wanted to exercise more so he advised me while I lift 3 and 5 lb weights. Then he, JJ, Danny, and I went for a walk out into the countryside up to the corn field at the…

Borgs and Empaths

I knew from the forecast and Accuweather radar that it was going to rain today, so I walked to the post office, took out the trash, and weeded my herb garden early(ish) this morning. I had only weeded a bit of the herb garden…

I Gave My Love A Cherry

Yesterday morning I went outside to fill the birdfeeders and found a ripe cherry. We have six little cherry trees and I found only ONE ripe cherry. I put it on EJ’s plate when I served him his breakfast. “Where is yours?” he asked….

Toadscaping

Once I got up this morning and had shared a pot of coffee with EJ, I spent the morning making homemade bread and homemade pizza. Last night JJ had said he was hungry for both and because his appetite has been wonky since his…

Slugged!

The last couple days have been hot and humid–today was worse than yesterday. Storms have been predicted for almost every day this week so I didn’t water the gardens yesterday even though the plants looked thirsty because I didn’t want to water unnecessarily. However,…

Mostly Good!

I woke up this morning when I smelled the coffee. EJ had gotten up before me and made a pot and the aroma wafted all the way upstairs. By the time I got downstairs–before 7 a.m.–EJ was falling asleep in his chair. He works…

My Father’s Day Gifts

Danny sheds a lot, so many times I throw his hair outside so the birds can use it for their nests. But late last week I read–probably at FB and maybe on the Birds & Bloom page–that a person can provide nesting material for…

Misty, Moisty Mornings

One misty, moisty, morning, When cloudy was the weather, There I met an old man All clothed in leather All clothed in leather, With a cap under his chin. How do you do? And how do you do? And how do you do again?…

Plants. And Chickens. And Binoculars.

Yesterday EJ had to have his blood drawn in preparation for a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning. We had an enjoyable 30 mile (or so) drive to the lab. Afterwards we stopped at the nearby farm-market type store because EJ had had to fast for…

Squirrels, Mosquitoes, and Stuff

Oh, my goodness, it’s been a week since I have written. I didn’t realize it had been that long. We have all been tired and unmotivated this week. JJ said it’s been really hitting him that he had CANCER and that he could have…

Houses & Gardens

Yesterday EJ and I worked in the garden for a bit. EJ planted his tomato and pepper plants in his veggie garden and then he planted his blueberry bushes in the area of the yard where the birdhouses are. While EJ planted, I planted…

The Trip to the Nursery

This morning, after a pot of coffee and a trip to the bank, EJ and I drove to a plant nursery near his company. On the way we passed a garage sale and we decided to turn around and stop at it. I saw…
