The Worst Is Yet To Come…

Early this morning it began to snow, and snow, and snow. And the wind began to blow, blow, blow. The wind swirled the snow around like snow-nadoes. We are under a Winter Storm Warning through Thursday…with more snow on the way for the weekend. Danny and… Continue Reading “The Worst Is Yet To Come…”

When the Trees Get Angry

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and Hanukkah! Because of the ice storm that was forecasted to hit yesterday, we decided to stay home on Christmas/Hanukkah. We probably could have gone to the matinée showing of the newest Star Wars movie… Continue Reading “When the Trees Get Angry”

The End of 2015

We survived the big storm that hit earlier in the week. The lights flicked a couple of times but we didn’t lose power. Yay! A snowplow tore our mailbox off the post and flung it into the snow so yesterday morning EJ put his… Continue Reading “The End of 2015”

Unfamiliar Things

Last night I looked out the front door and saw a humongous spider on the porch. I texted EJ, “I just saw the biggest spider EVER on our front porch. I need a gun.” It was the size of my hand. Seriously. I took… Continue Reading “Unfamiliar Things”

First Days in the Enchanted Forest

We just got Internet installed today! Yay! I’ve been writing each day about our first week in the Enchanted Forest and I can finally post it. Weekend, May 30-31 A week or so before we moved, I worked at hauling junk from the basement.… Continue Reading “First Days in the Enchanted Forest”

The Best Laid Plans….

Ok, the Plan is that EJ goes to the closing on Friday after work, then he and JJ go to the new house afterwards to drop off the boxes of painting and cleaning supplies, sleeping bags, pots, clothes, and other items that we packed… Continue Reading “The Best Laid Plans….”

Redi-Care

My foot has been hurting more and more–along with a tingling numbness that I’ve felt ever since I fell over the stupid exercise thingy. I was getting concerned that I might have broken my foot. At first I thought that I’d just wait until… Continue Reading “Redi-Care”

The Furnace Guy

The furnace guy came, as expected, at about 11;30 a.m. I let him read the note EJ left for him and then took him down to the basement where he looked at the old furnace and the ducts. The people we bought this house… Continue Reading “The Furnace Guy”

A Rain of Maple Seeds

Today was an extremely productive day. I decided to paint the floor of the front porch this morning. The day was beautiful–a cloudless sky with just enough coolness to make working a pleasure.  I really enjoyed painting the porch, although Rikki-Tikki-Tabby and Tesla wanted… Continue Reading “A Rain of Maple Seeds”

Cats

This morning I decided to get gas in the car, go to the bank to close our account, and stop at the post office for our mail. In a few days, we will actually have mail delivered to our house–for the first time in… Continue Reading “Cats”

The Basement

Ugh, the weather sure is crazy. Monday was a warm 80 degrees. The weather forecast had said that it would rain but since it hadn’t rained all weekend as predicted, I took a risk and I painted the front porch. I began at 9… Continue Reading “The Basement”

Baby Birds

My guys have been here…and are gone again. One of my neighbors said I must get really lonely during the week here all alone. I do miss my guys like crazy, but during the week I keep busy and just try not to think… Continue Reading “Baby Birds”

The Things We Leave Behind

It’s been a rainy week. I keep checking the weather forecast to see if conditions will allow me to paint this week. Today and tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny but I do not know if it will be dry enough to paint… Continue Reading “The Things We Leave Behind”

Clean Up Days

My guys had to run errands in the Emerald City after EJ got out of work Friday afternoon so they got a late start and didn’t arrive back here until 11 p.m. They were extremely tired and glad to be home. As soon as… Continue Reading “Clean Up Days”

Sweltering

I spent all Wednesday sleeping–not because I was lazy but because I didn’t feel well. I had an achy head, chills, and nausea. I felt too awful to be awake. I kind of wonder if the damp rainy days aggravated my sinuses or something.… Continue Reading “Sweltering”
