A Sweet December Weekend

Friday morning I snowblowed the driveway in hopes that the mail lady would deliver packages that were scheduled to arrive. I worked hard and did a good job. As soon as I finished, I walked down to the mailbox. The mail was already there,…

Winter Magic

Yesterday JJ chauffeured me around to complete various errands. It was snowing quite hard and the roads were snow-covered and slippery at times. Our first stop was to the hospital in a nearby town to pick up my new eye glasses. I think it’s…

The Post

Yesterday–or maybe Saturday–I was sitting in my chair by the window when I saw Miss Madeline Meadows trotting along the edge of the forest, heading downhill. Suddenly, some birds flew up to the birdfeeders. Their movement caught Madeline’s attention. She turned around and headed…

Enchanting Critters

I had to laugh yesterday when several hours after EJ had left to go hunting on the other side of the state, I looked out of the window and saw four deer standing on the hill on our own five acres. I sent him…

Stormy Heat

The heat and humidity have been terrible since Saturday. I sometimes joke that I must have some snowman DNA because I feel as if I’m melting in the heat and all the energy drains out of me. I seriously don’t know how people in…

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…

Transitioning

Yikes! I can’t believe that I haven’t written since January 29th! I have a lot of catching up to do. Mostly I didn’t write because I was very tired. I don’t think that I’ve had a good night’s sleep for more than a year….

Eleven Days

We have had eleven days of snow. Most days we got a few inches of snow. Some days we got more. Yesterday afternoon the weather cleared and we actually had a bit of blue skies and sunshine. It’s been so long since we’ve seen…

The End of February

I’m surprised that I haven’t written since February 17th. Time went fast. The second half of February has gone better than the first half, although I do feel a bit worse for wear. I have mostly been busy crocheting. I have an order for…

Snow Fun

Here in the North, we’ve had snowstorms and lake effect snow. It’s been snowing constantly for days–meteorologists say that we’ve gotten 1-4 inches of snow per hour at times.  I’m not sure exactly how many inches of snow we’ve gotten. In the unshoveled areas near the…

The Things That Bring Me Joy

Maybe because our calendars clicked over into a new year, I’ve been thinking of a lot about our lives now and then. Of course, I’ve been thinking about now and then ever since we moved to our new home, so maybe it doesn’t have…

Winter Storm

I am very thankful that the high winds caused us to lose our power on December 24-26 because it motivated us to buy a propane heater and a generator so that we are all set for Monday and Tuesday when the weather is supposed…

The Big Bad Wolf

At the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, a huge wind storm blew in. It buffeted our house, reminding me of the Big Bad Wolf who huffed and puffed to blow the house down. Our house didn’t blow down but sometime in the night…

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…

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…
