On Our Walk….

We have had some warm days, but the weather has a hint of autumn in it now. Some of the leaves on the trees are getting edged with color. I love every season of the year, but I think autumn is my favorite. I…

Times Two

This has been a busy week, relatively speaking. Sunday afternoon EJ and I went grocery shopping. We have always gone shopping together. Going together makes grocery shopping more fun and less of a chore. We enjoy being together and with both of us adding…

Boogerized

Today was mostly almost good. I always make Challah bread on Fridays for Shabbat. I always begin making it as soon as I get up in the morning, even before I make coffee or check Facebook, because I have to prepare the dough, let…

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…

A Wintry Day

We woke up to a beautiful wintry world. I don’t know what the official totals are, but I think we got at least 7 inches of new snow. I believe I must be the only person in the whole Midwest who welcomed the snow…

Day 1 of Cycle 3

Yesterday we spent much of the day cleaning the house and doing chores. After we were finished getting everything done, we sat down and watched a favorite Netflix series with delightfully quirky characters. This morning we woke up to another six or so inches…

Hunkering Down

First thing this morning I got dressed and went outside to care for the outside cats. I was worried about the cats being too cold in this weather, but we can’t risk them bringing any illnesses into the house with JJ’s immune system so…

JJ’s Cat

Yesterday when I got back from the post office, I found a drop of blood that was slightly smaller than a dime on the floor. I thought that probably one of the cats had injured himself, so I began to search for more drops,…

Autumn Projects

  Yesterday morning EJ and I got another load of firewood from our friend RB’s place.  We just put the wood into the back of the pickup truck rather than try to pull the trailer home. Today’s wood was heavier–we took the lighter pieces…

The Hospice Store

Today was a splendiforous day. I love that word. It just rolls off the tongue. It means magnificent and wonderful. After JJ had left for school, EJ and I set off to the hospice store in a nearby town. The hospice store is a thrift…

A Dagobah Day

Order and sanity is returning to my home. The cats all seem to be in good health…or on their way there. After we took Luke to the vet the other day, we put him in the bathroom.  The bathroom is smaller than the back…

Not the Worst of Summers

It also has not been the worst of summers. It has also not been the best of summers. Compared to problems many other people are experiencing, our lives are greatly blessed and our problems are small. I have a loving husband. My son is…

NOOOOOOO!

Last night I saw that Timmy has worms. Will the nightmare never end? I woke in the night thinking that we needed to give worm medicine to all the cats, and wondering how we could afford it. I called the vet this morning and…

College–and Cats

Back in my other life, before I was married to EJ and had a son, I was a word processor at a consulting firm. When I mentioned to my supervisor that if I ever got married, I wanted to be a stay-at-home Mom, she…

A Crappy Life

Lately I have had a rather crappy life. I mean, really. One of our cats has had diarrhea. Badly. I was constantly discovering it and cleaning it up and mopping the floors. I’ve also dumped out and washed the litter boxes because the cat…
