The Repairman

EJ had to work Saturday, which is only the second time he’s had to work on a weekend at this company. This is totally different from EJ’s company downstate where he had to work seven days a week for months without a break. Poor…

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…

Our Father’s Day

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Our weekend was quite quiet, mostly because it was so hot and humid that the energy melted out of us. Sunday was especially hot, with temperatures in the 90s. There were heat warnings out. Seriously, I…

The Post

Yesterday–or maybe Saturday–I was sitting in my chair by the window when I saw Miss Madeline Meadows trotting along the edge of the forest, heading downhill. Suddenly, some birds flew up to the birdfeeders. Their movement caught Madeline’s attention. She turned around and headed…

Enchanting Critters

I had to laugh yesterday when several hours after EJ had left to go hunting on the other side of the state, I looked out of the window and saw four deer standing on the hill on our own five acres. I sent him…

Home Work

I found another dead shrew inside the garage this morning. This is the third shrew Madeline has killed. She always leaves her “gifts” in the same place, just inside the garage’s back door. With Madeline on the job, we won’t have much of a…

Enchanted Signs

Our cat Tesla was so old that she didn’t have many teeth left so a couple of years ago we started to buy canned cat food for her. After she died last year, we kept buying the canned food. Every morning I put a…

Band of Chickens

Last week was as sunny and warm as the previous was rainy and chilly. Today is the warmest day yet. The forecast was for rain–and all afternoon the clouds have darkened and we’ve heard occasional rumbles of thunder. So far, however, the storms have…

Monday Rain

Yesterday EJ and I spent the day doing a bunch of odd jobs in the kitchen. I can’t really remember everything we did, but it took all day. I cleaned each item as I put it back where it belonged, EJ put cabinet trim…

A Burst of Sunbeam Glow

EJ was able to get Friday off as a vacation day! He spent the day painting primer on the kitchen walls while I did a bunch of odd jobs: laundry, mowing the lawn, reconfiguring the Christmas lights in the chicken coop, and so on….

Tuesday EJ and moved stuff away from one section of the wall in the garage and then EJ began building shelves to hold all his pieces of lumber. He is going to build several shelves so that he can sort the lumber according to…

Tasks, Chores, and Jobs

This morning I glanced out the kitchen window and was surprised by a breathtakingly beautiful iris in our flower garden. The flower garden was planted by a previous owners and we are often surprised by what unexpectedly appears. We also are overjoyed that some…

Happy Chickens

Most of the time JJ has to be to work at 3 p.m., but today he was scheduled to begin work at noon. After JJ left, I considered working to enlarge the chickens’ outside pen. However, I knew that once I began working on…

The Mattress: Conclusion

So, as I already wrote the other day, our mattress was scheduled to arrive between 9:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. on Thursday. JJ and I waited near the entrance of our driveway for several hours so we could transport the mattress the rest of…

What We Did During The Holidays

HAPPY 2017!! I’m a bit late in wishing you a Happy New Year, but my wishes are heartfelt. I hope your holidays were awesome and that this year is one of joy and blessing for you. EJ returned to work this Monday after enjoying…
