Celebrations

Friday, as usual, was our errand day. We were planning to buy some straw bales for the chicken coop. I called a farm store and a hardware store where we have bought bales in previous years, but EJ said they were much too expensive….

Chicks & Things

People who have the INFJ personality type tend to be writers. The article, “Why Do So Many INFJs Want to Write,” explains it this way: INFJs are complex, deep thinkers with a keen insight into how people think and feel, so we’re not afraid…

Ambush at Barker Creek

Today we needed to get fencing so we can protect our apple trees from hungry deer this winter. We decided to go to a different TSC in a different town than we usually go to so we could stop at the Cops & Donuts…

The Orcs Next Door

Oh, my goodness, I just realized that I haven’t written in more than a week. In fact, this is my first post in June! I swear that I just blinked and the dates jumped from May 30th to June 8th! I’ve been busy, sort…

Appointments

We had a very busy weekend. On Saturday we met a friend at a town that was between our house and his, although he had a longer drive then we did. He chose that particular town to meet because he wanted to go to…

Weather, Propane, and Stuff

Sunny, Rain, Snow, Sunny, Rain, Snow. Warm, Cold, Warm, Cold. Melt, Freeze, Melt, Freeze. Our weather has been up and down and very changeable throughout January. We’ve had such warm temperatures that the snow melted and the chickens even came out of their coop…

Magical Diamond Dust

The sunrise this morning was gorgeous. The skies were mostly blue all day and the sunlight made the ground sparkle, as if the snow had been replaced with diamond dust. It was absolutely magical and I truly felt as if I live in an…

The R.O.U.S.

The temperatures have risen into the mid-40s. It’s so warm that I’m tempted to wear a jacket instead of a coat. The snow is melting rapidly and I can see patches of bare ground in places–mostly where we’ve snowblowed or walked paths in the…

The Joy of Hannah

We had some really cold days and nights here. EJ said that one morning our thermostat said -6. On that morning it wasn’t long before my face and hands starting hurt when I went out to do my morning chores. I tried to blow…

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…

Snowy Days

I hope everyone had a tremendous Christmas! After we moved to Northern Michigan, we started a new tradition of going to the theater to watch the latest Star Wars movie on Christmas day. We were all set to do it again this year, but…

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…

Introducing Hannah Joy

Despite my greatest efforts, I was unable to resist temptation. I gave in. I failed miserably….well, to be honest, I actually failed joyfully. Yesterday our local animal shelter posted at Facebook that they would be open for adoptions from 9 a.m. to noon on…

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…

Curiosity

Yesterday the temperatures warmed up again–into the 60s–so I was able to open the windows. Yay! We are supposed to have sunshine and nice temperatures for the next several days. I like these temps because it’s warm enough to not have to wear coats,…
