Speaker for the Dead

EJ’s Mom’s funeral was held on Saturday. Except the for reason for the trip, the 10-hour drive (5 hours to and from) through beautiful scenery was very pleasant with good conversation. Hannah Joy was babysat by her Favorite Uncle, who cuddled her and took…

Independence Day

My life is normally simple and quiet–I like it that way–but lately I think it is boring, at least to write or read about. With a broken arm, there is not much I can do. The most exciting part of a day involves being…

Life in March

Wow. It’s been more than a week since I’ve last written. An awful lot has happened in that time. We had some warm weather–warm enough for jackets and shoes instead of coats and boots. It melted all our snow, which is wonderful because I’m…

Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Two days too late, I know, but I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Well, those of you who live in the USA anyway. I hope those outside the USA had a wonderful week. This last week has been so busy…

Too Many Bricks

When I was growing up, I remember that whenever anyone had a problem, people (particularly at church) questioned whether the cause was spiritual, emotional (mental health), or physical (biological). Each problem was seen as separate and distinct from the others–although usually it was assumed…

There and Back Again

After getting home from work last night (or rather, in the wee hours of the morning), EJ slept three hours and then we drove to our old house. We loaded up the Buggy and then drove to the graduation open house. We spent a…

When I in Awesome Wonder

Morning When JJ got home from work last night, he said, “Our forest is kind of scary! I saw blue glowing eyes in a tree about halfway up the hill. I think it was probably an owl.” I said, “Maybe it was an orc.”…

Celestial Delight

Last night I set my alarm for 4:30 a.m. so that we could watch the lunar eclipse. The eclipse was actually not supposed to start until 5:15 a.m., but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss any of it. When the alarm went…

Autumn Celebration

Tomorrow is my birthday, but we celebrated it today. EJ bought me four (of many) books that I have wanted. I’d rather have books than new clothes or flowers or chocolate or jewelry. However, the gift I ask for every year is an enjoyment…

Visitation From Above

The day JJ had his CT scan, he felt progressively more sick–nauseous and so cold that I fixed a hot water bottle to warm him. We felt our memories yanked back to the weeks in which we all dozed downstairs to be available to…

(Un)Summoned!

This morning I made EJ one of his favorite breakfasts of scrambled eggs (with some of my garden herbs), homemade toast, a banana, and coffee. Afterwards, I prepared two homemade chicken pot pies. It is my favorite meal–and EJ and JJ love it too….

INFJ Pondering

My family really enjoys weather-watching. We love to watch storms approaching on radar. Many, many times, we watch a huge storm comes straight towards us on radar but then it splits north and south and our village slides through the tiny gap between. Either…

Times Two

This has been a busy week, relatively speaking. Sunday afternoon EJ and I went grocery shopping. We have always gone shopping together. Going together makes grocery shopping more fun and less of a chore. We enjoy being together and with both of us adding…

Nice & Boring

The days of this summer are passing by with one day blending into another without much change. I don’t mind that. Sometimes co-workers ask EJ “How’s life?” When he replies, “Nice and boring,” they respond, “What? Really? No, you want it EXCITING!” EJ says,…

Pulaski

Yesterday EJ, JJ, and I went to visit his sister and her large family.  We stayed all afternoon and had barbecue steak, chicken, potato salad, tuna salad, chips….all the foods families have when they get together during the summer. The best part of the…
