(Dis)Connected

This morning arrived with heavy fog, making everything look beautifully mysterious. Once the fog burned off, the day was mostly sunny with the temperature forecast to reach around 50 degrees (F). It looks as if we are getting an early Spring. I sure hope… Continue Reading “(Dis)Connected”

Cousin Jenny’s Pasties

The snow that was dumped on us this week is already beginning to melt as the temperatures warm. There are still several inches of snow on the ground, but it is shrinking a bit and in the driveway it is slushy. EJ’s birthday is… Continue Reading “Cousin Jenny’s Pasties”

Life in March

Wow. It’s been more than a week since I’ve last written. An awful lot has happened in that time. We had some warm weather–warm enough for jackets and shoes instead of coats and boots. It melted all our snow, which is wonderful because I’m… Continue Reading “Life in March”

The Gift of Autumn

Because my husband and son have different days off from work, I couldn’t celebrate my birthday (which is next week) with both of them at the same time. So I had a wonderful day celebrating my birthday with JJ on Friday and a wonderful… Continue Reading “The Gift of Autumn”

A Magical Day

My birthday is next week. The gift I usually ask for is a memory-making experience. We usually celebrate the weekend preceding my birthday and in the past we have gone to wild bird sanctuaries or cider mills or simply on drives through the beautiful… Continue Reading “A Magical Day”

Birthday: Day 2

Over the weekend, we ran out of milk and eggs, so I didn’t have ingredients to make breakfast today–egg omelets, French toast, pancakes, or cereal all require either eggs, milk, or both. When JJ asked “What’s for breakfast?” I said, “Donuts….Duh!” I am such… Continue Reading “Birthday: Day 2”

Autumn Celebration

Tomorrow is my birthday, but we celebrated it today. EJ bought me four (of many) books that I have wanted. I’d rather have books than new clothes or flowers or chocolate or jewelry. However, the gift I ask for every year is an enjoyment… Continue Reading “Autumn Celebration”

Happy Birthday, EJ!

Today is EJ’s birthday. I fixed him a spendiferous breakfast of deluxe scrambled eggs, a bagel, and a banana. When JJ woke up, we sang “Happy Birthday” to EJ and ate the cheese cake we bought yesterday. There were two pieces each of four… Continue Reading “Happy Birthday, EJ!”

L’Chaim!

On March 11, after the oncologist had given us the results of the after-Chemo CT Scan and blood tests, he exclaimed to JJ “You are going to INDEEEAAPOLIS!” to have surgery to remove the cancerous lymph node in his back. The oncologist sounded so… Continue Reading “L’Chaim!”

Taxes & Cactus & Cake

When JJ was a little boy, I used to tell him that sometimes Summer and Winter battled each other–with one day warm and another day cold. The times when they fight is called “Spring” and “Autumn.” In the Spring, Summer eventually wins the fight… Continue Reading “Taxes & Cactus & Cake”

My Birthday Gift

Today is my birthday. I am <mumble, mumble> years old. 🙂 For my birthday gift, EJ is going to build floor-to-ceiling book shelves along one wall of our living room. I can’t wait. We have an upstairs room stuffed with books; it will be… Continue Reading “My Birthday Gift”
