A Funny Type of Breed

I’ve been working on my rock dams this week. My goal is to take one wheelbarrow load–a light load–of potato stones down the driveway to rebuild the dams to stop erosion. Yesterday I actually did two loads. Today I didn’t want to do any…

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….

Dog-Gone Memories

Today we are grieving Danny. His loss has left a painful hole in our hearts. We are flooded with memories: Every now and then when JJ was  younger, he and I used to stop at a store in a nearby town called Soldan’s. It primarily…

Goodbye, Danny

My Danny died today. I think that both EJ and I knew that he would, which is why EJ kept saying that we might have to say goodbye to him. I think he was trying to prepare both himself and me. I cried all…

Oh, Danny Boy!

I have to take Danny to the vet later this afternoon. Late last winter, we had several weeks of alternating warm and cold days so that the snow melted and froze, making our driveway very ice. Danny started limping badly so we think he…

Stories in Black and White

I have been participating in a Facebook challenge. This may seem like a no big deal, whatever, kind of thing, but I almost never, never, ever participate in group challenges. Never. This might be the first, in fact. I recognize and accept that a lot…

This and That

Tuesday I worked really hard in my garden, which I described in my post, Expansive Dreams. The next day I had absolutely no energy. It didn’t help that we had scattered rain showers–just enough rain that I couldn’t work outside. So I slept instead….

Decepticon

The night-time temperatures in our area have not consistently risen above the high 30s. The last couple of nights the temperatures dipped–into the low 30s and even the 20s. We’ve had had frost/freeze warnings. We turned our furnace back on. Although the overnight temperatures…

Spring Blessings

Yesterday evening after supper I went to the store where JJ works to buy groceries. JJ was working and, as he often does, he noticed that I was in the store so he can up to say “hi!” I noticed that he had a…

Spring Things

This last weekend the sun shone and the temperatures were very warm–up into the 60s. I almost put the screens back in and opened the windows, but I didn’t. I was busy with other projects, and I know that we can still get snow….

Transitioning

Yikes! I can’t believe that I haven’t written since January 29th! I have a lot of catching up to do. Mostly I didn’t write because I was very tired. I don’t think that I’ve had a good night’s sleep for more than a year….

January Thaw

I haven’t written for…a week or two? Life has been happening. JJ is back in his college classes. He really enjoys his classes. He is taking a law enforcement class, sociology, math and, I think, a psychology class. Almost every year Michigan has what…

Let It Snow….

I sort of woke at 5 a.m. this morning and then Danny wanted me to take him outside. He is the most considerate dog I’ve ever encountered. He waits until he knows I’m awake before he asks to go out. He also waits until…

The Enchanted Library

I really enjoy the beauty of early mornings but the sun rises so early that if I didn’t have to get up to let the chickens and ducks outside, I would sleep right through the dawn. Instead, I get up early to let the…

Labor Day Weekend

EJ came home from work last Thursday and told me that he had taken Friday off as a vacation day. Monday is Labor Day, which means he has a four-day weekend. Yay! As soon as it got dark on Thursday evening, EJ, JJ, and…
