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…

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…

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 Secret World of Crows

When we talked to the Flooring Department salesman at Lowes on Sunday, he told us to expect a call in the next day or two to set up an appointment to get our living room floor measured. We specifically asked him to give the…

“Hidden Pictures”

Every time I go outside, I look around to see what I can see–I enjoy looking at the wildflowers along the driveway, and try to see if I can spot any new ones in bloom. I also look and listen for birds, insects, or…

Warm and Warmer

The three days since my last post have been beautiful with blue skies and plenty of sunshine. The temperature has climbed every day, with each day warmer than the last. Today it is 86 degrees. It’s way above my tolerance level. I’m totally melting….

Lilies and Life

On Sunday EJ and I went to TSC so he could buy some work boots. His old ones were too worn. While we were there, I bought a box of 32 cans of cat food, another bale of straw, some poultry feed, and some…

Open Windows

Weather in Michigan is a big thing. Maybe because it changes so much. I heard that the week of the last snowstorm we got, we had every possible type of weather except hurricanes–sun/warmth, cold, snow, sleet, rain, wind….This last weekend, the overnight lows dipped…

Bluebird of Happiness

Today is overcast with a high in the mid-40s (with expected overnight low only 22! Yikes). However, beginning last week the temperatures have gradually risen into the 40s, 50s, 60s, and it even reach 70 yesterday! It was so warm that I didn’t wear…

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 Has Arrived!

I think winter has finally come to stay. We had 4-6 inches of snow over night. It snowed all day today and I think more snow is on the way. With all the snow, I decided I ought to snowblow the driveway this morning….

The Owl Prowl

Last night EJ and I went to the Owl Prowl at the Grass River Nature Area. It was already dark when we entered the nature area. We drove a mile through the forest to get to the parking area, and then we had maybe…

Plum Crazy

I’ve gone kind of “sign crazy.” I’ve been having a lot of fun making cute little signs. I’m getting low on wooden letters so I’ve been constructing new letters out of old letters–like making an “R” into a “P” or a “Y” out of…

Chasing After Butterflies…

Today I chased after butterflies….both figuratively and literally and maybe even metaphorically. I had trouble getting motivated this morning. I’d start a task, and then get distracted and side-tracked. I usually make the bed while the cats are eating their canned food, which I…

Life in Hidden Places

Somehow, the week has zoomed by and it’s already over. Tuesday was JJ’s day off from work and we were busy. We both had errands to do so we combined our tasks and went together. Our first stop was at the grocery store. JJ’s…
