Irrepressible Hannah Joy

Sometimes when I walk Hannah Joy down the driveway, she goes into what I call her “Tasmanian Devil” mode. She gets a wild look in her eyes and a maniacal grin on her face and she races madly back and forth to the end…

The North Post

Yesterday as soon as EJ left for work, I quickly took my shower and ate breakfast because EJ had told me that the septic guys were expected to arrive before 8:30 a.m. I waited as the hours passed and they still hadn’t arrived so…

The Porcupine

Friday night I didn’t sleep well at all so I was very tired on Saturday. Plus, it was very hot and humid. It was a day of doing almost nothing. EJ did more than I did. He cooked spaghetti for supper with a delicious…

Heat Wave

I hope everyone in the USA had a wonderful Independence Day! We had a quiet, uneventful holiday, which is just the way we like it. Both EJ and I are introverts who are re-energized by beauty, quiet, peace, nature, and animals. We don’t like…

Holes

Sunday evening we had a bit of a storm. It wasn’t that severe, but we did get a little bit of rain. It quickly moved on and left a beautiful double rainbow behind. Monday was cooler than the previous two days had been. It…

Hannah’s Ice Bone

We didn’t want to go outside in the brutal afternoon heat so EJ and I waited until about 7 p.m. yesterday evening  before we walked Hannah–with Josette following–down the driveway to get the mail.  On the way back to the house, I noticed a…

Excessive Heat

Beginning on Friday and continuing at least through the weekend–although all this coming week the temps will be in the high 80s (F)–there are Excessive Heat Warnings issued for our area. In fact, I read in the news that this is the first time our…

The Bumblebee and Me

I am so freakin’ gonna die this weekend! I can barely tolerate temperatures in the high 70s. I don’t know how I will endure temperatures that feel like they are close to 100. Because it’s going to be so scorching hot this weekend, I’ve…

The Delivery

It obviously rained overnight although there was only a light rain falling when I woke up this morning. That soon ended as well, although the day continued to have dark gray clouds and a feeling of dampness in the air. As usual, I stumbled…

Bona Fide

One of EJ’s favorite movies is O, Brother, Where Art Thou? It’s about a guy (George Clooney) who escapes from a chain gang when he hears that his ex-wife is planning to get remarried. He finds his children singing at a political fundraiser and they tell…

The Secret World of Crows

When we talked to the Flooring Department salesman at Lowes on Sunday, he told us to expect a call in the next day or two to set up an appointment to get our living room floor measured. We specifically asked him to give the…

“Hidden Pictures”

Every time I go outside, I look around to see what I can see–I enjoy looking at the wildflowers along the driveway, and try to see if I can spot any new ones in bloom. I also look and listen for birds, insects, or…

Damaging My Calm

Today was another beautiful sunny day. Because of the lack of rain, we have “Extreme Fire Danger” warnings in our area. I hope we start getting rain soon–mostly because of the thirsty plants, of course, but also because we can’t risk having weekend campfires…

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…

Puttering

Monday is Memorial Day, which is a day that of remembrance of American soldiers who have died in military service. The town we lived in downstate always had a very touching ceremony outside the VFW and at the cemetery. Here in the north, we…
