A Strange Sky

Last weekend our sky was a very strange color, a color that I’ve rarely seen. I think it’s called “blue.” And there was a fireball in the sky that made my eyes burn, tear, and squint with its intense brightness. Legend says it’s called… Continue Reading “A Strange Sky”

Where the Sun Doesn’t Shine

I live in Northern Michigan where the sun doesn’t shine. I wasn’t exactly counting at first, but I’d guess that we are entering the third week in which the sun hasn’t shined. Not a peep, not a beam, nothing. There aren’t even any ominous… Continue Reading “Where the Sun Doesn’t Shine”

Goodbye 2022

Goodbye 2022. Hopefully 2023 will be less crazy and difficult, but I’m not exactly holding my breath. What I will do is resolve to face its challenges with faith and courage, come what may. As I write this post, I’m drinking coffee and looking… Continue Reading “Goodbye 2022”

The Weather Outside

I hope everyone had a Christmas filled with love and peace. I also pray that you all safely made it to your Christmas destinations and home again. The weather outside was frightful for much of the USA. I heard some Media calling it “THE… Continue Reading “The Weather Outside”

The Furnace

Today was very gloomy with thick clouds and mist so that the light never brightened above twilight. With no snow and bare trees it felt more like November than December. But I’m glad that November is gone because it was a tough month. It… Continue Reading “The Furnace”

Lothlorien

I thought that we were past the warmer weather, but nope. The last few days we’ve had temperatures in the low 70s. It was so nice that we mostly worked on outside projects. Wednesday the temperatures will get cool again–with a high of only… Continue Reading “Lothlorien”

Raindrops and Leaves

After I wrote yesterday’s post, I checked the weather–because EJ and I enjoy watching the weather. It also lets us know what we should wear for the day (t-shirt/shorts, sweatshirt/jeans, coat/hat/boots?), whether it would be better to work outside or inside, if severe weather… Continue Reading “Raindrops and Leaves”

Transitions

A week ago, we had a sunny day with the temperature reaching the low 70s. It’s been all downhill since then. Well, as far as temperatures go. Daytime highs are only in the 40s and nighttime temperatures are in the 30s. We’ve had quite… Continue Reading “Transitions”

All Our Needs

Our beloved dog, Hannah Joy, loves to cuddle under blankets. As the weather cools, she spends more and more time under blankets and on my lap. Good thing that I also like to cuddle under blankets. Our annual autumn game called “How Long Can… Continue Reading “All Our Needs”

How Long Can We Go?

The weather has now turned sharply into autumn. We are in a midst of a series of rainy days, which is forecasted to continue through Tuesday. Today was especially rainy and gloomy with dark clouds. The temperatures have dropped into the 50s during the… Continue Reading “How Long Can We Go?”

September Tasks

We’ve enjoyed a series of days with very nice weather. It’s both pleasantly warm and pleasantly cool at the same time. If I’m holding still I feel cool but if I am working I feel warm. However, the National Weather Service forecast says that… Continue Reading “September Tasks”

Roosting Turkeys

The rain continued this morning, but in the afternoon blue skies chased away the clouds. It was cool enough this morning that I wore a jacket when I went outside, but this afternoon it warmed up enough that I didn’t need one. We are… Continue Reading “Roosting Turkeys”

Corn Off The Cob

EJ had bought a dozen ears of corn at the farm market Saturday so we could try our hand at freezing corn. The process requires several steps. On Sunday I shucked and blanched the dozen ears of corn and then went to my computer… Continue Reading “Corn Off The Cob”

September Harvest

We are now well into September and the weather is feeling more like autumn. Mornings are cooler, although the temperature rises as the day progresses. However, although the thermometer may indicate the same temperature, it doesn’t feel as hot in September as it does… Continue Reading “September Harvest”

Tomato Wealth

The weather seems to be transitioning into autumn. We are enjoying slightly cooler days and even warm days have an underlying coolness to them. Looking closely, we can see a blush of autumn color on a few of the trees. Autumn is coming. I… Continue Reading “Tomato Wealth”
