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…

Rain-Soggied Straw

Yesterday I waited until the ground had a chance to dry a little, and then I went outside to work. I shovel some of the dirt from the raised bed into the wheelbarrow. When I had a generous amount, I mixed in the two…

Floor & Fence

My body was so tired from all the work I did yesterday that I had trouble getting myself going this morning. After I drank the last cup of coffee and said goodbye to JJ, who went off to school, I managed to get myself…

Winter Race

I woke up very early on Tuesday morning–about 3-ish–and couldn’t go back to sleep. I wasn’t able to get a nap because it was an extremely busy day with many errands to run. I fed, watered, and let the chickens and ducks out, went…

Fairy Tales

Many good things happened this week that I have wanted to share, but I have been busy and haven’t taken the time. I have been spending most of my time crocheting items to sell at Teric’s Treasures, my Etsy store. I am super proud of…

Life on the Run

This was one of those absolutely crazy days that feels as if life is a comedy routine. It was running here, dropping EJ there, dropping JJ there, picking up EJ. It was sort of funny. Both EJ and JJ had appointments they had to…

Plan A – B + C

This week has been interesting with its ups and downs and twists and turns. EJ went hunting last weekend and brought home two deer. When he got them home on Sunday night, he hung them up in the garage. JJ and I climbed up…

Daddy’s Gone A-Hunting

It’s looking very November. One afternoon last week EJ, Danny, and I walked through one of our little meadows and into the forest on our way back from the mailbox.  In the meadow we saw an area of flattened grass where EJ said the…

College Matters

JJ is recovering nicely, with much less pain and groaning than I expected. He sleeps quite a bit, which is good. His appetite is returning, which is a delight. He had not been hungry for many weeks and had gotten much too thin. JJ…

There And Back Again

JJ starts college this coming Monday. We have been teaching him the route to the college by having him drive us there and back again several times over the last couple months. The last time he drove us to the college, I wrote down…

Outside Work

Once again I took Danny for a morning walk rather than our usual afternoon walk so that we could try to beat the heat. I took along a cup of coffee made with our own coffee machine. It’s nice to be able to make…

Little Things Resolved…

When I began this blog, I was intending to write about my garden, but so far this summer I haven’t been out in the garden much! First there was lots of rain, then swarms of mosquitoes, and now we have high heat advisories. It…

A Lot of Little Things

Yesterday morning I was waiting for the coffee machine to finishing making the coffee, anticipating the first sip of my first cup of coffee for the day…The coffee machine finished, I pulled out the coffee pot to pour the coffee into my cup…and suddenly…
