The Year of Sea Change

I’m a little late wishing everyone a Happy New Year, but I hope everyone’s new year is off to a good start. Our New Year arrived in a snowstorm, dumping almost a foot of snow on us. It’s the most snow we’ve gotten this…

Goodbye 2018

It has been a long time since I have posted. As 2018 draws to a close, I thought it would be a good time to update you all on the ending of our year. I’m not sorry that 2018 is ending because it has…

Finding Josette

I didn’t sleep well Friday night–I only got about four hours of sleep–so I was tired all day Saturday. However, EJ and I still stayed up late last night to watch the Perseid meteorite shower, which occurs every August at this time. We dragged…

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…

Bumblebees, Butterflies, and Old Straw

Once again, it’s the beginning of a new week. The days and weeks just seem to fly by! EJ and I had an enjoyable weekend. Saturday the weather ranged from misty to a very light rain. It was a good day to stay indoors…

I Spy

Wednesday was a slow, unmotivated day. Thursday was just the opposite–I was busy all day long from morning till evening. As usually, I got out of bed and took care of all the pets, then watered the gardens and trees we planted. Yesterday was…

Madeline’s Tactics

Yesterday I felt very unmotivated. I had trouble getting started. I eventually did get a few things done. Today I was more motivated. Our grass is getting long enough to mow. I knew it was going to get hot later–reaching 80 degrees–so I went out…

May Days…and Nights

During the week, I get up when EJ does. While he gets ready for work, I feed Hannah, who gobbles down her food in a flash. Then I take her outside to “do her business.” After that, I feed in the inside cats and…

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…

The Dragon Shawl

JJ has been battling a bad cold for about two weeks. It has been bad enough to make him feel bad, but not bad enough to prevent him from working, going to school, and hanging out with his girlfriend. I have finally succumbed to…

Madeline’s Surprise

I had an interrupted night of sleep. First, I heard Hannah jump off the bed to welcome JJ home from work. I often wait up for JJ, but not if he gets home too late. Last night he didn’t get home until midnight. I’m…

Holiday Week

This week is zooming by. I wouldn’t have minded if it had slowed down a bit so we could savor EJ being home. It didn’t, and it’s already Friday. Wednesday EJ finally got his new eye glasses. He chose bolder glasses for the first…

Grandma’s Feather Bed (And Darth Luke)

I hope each of you have a restful, peaceful, and delightful Christmas Day! Last night when EJ and I got into bed, Hannah Joy jumped into bed between us. Ah, well, we let her. I’m not sure we could have prevented her, but we…

Life at the Post

I took a beautiful photo of Josette sitting on the gate post in the blue-ish early morning light. I am totally in love with sweet, beautiful Josette. I am delighted at how she joins me each time I go out to care for the…

Pet Craving

Yesterday a group of JJ’s friends came over to go sledding on our driveway. There were five adults and two kids. JJ said that there would have been more but some of his friends couldn’t make it. They seemed like nice young people. I’m…
