Different Than Expected

There are a lot of things about our Enchanted Forest that are other than I expected.  It’s not bad, it’s just different than my expectations. I think that even though a person might imagine what it would be like to live in a different sort… Continue Reading “Different Than Expected”

Driveway Project

This morning as I was refilling the outdoor cats’ bowl with fresh water, I found a very pretty moth. I’m amazed at all the different types of moths and other bugs that we are finding in our Enchanted Forest. Some moths are very huge,… Continue Reading “Driveway Project”

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… Continue Reading “Too Many Bricks”

♪ Because I’m Happy ♫

Yesterday we enjoyed a quiet, peaceful, restful Shabbat. It was such an awesome day. When the sun set, EJ changed all the lightbulbs in the house to energy-efficient LED bulbs, which use almost no electricity and last for years. Then he got out his… Continue Reading “♪ Because I’m Happy ♫”

Enchanted 4th

We did not drive the long journey south to the old house this weekend. Not only did we not want to travel on a busy holiday weekend–it’s the USA’s Independence Day–but after all the weekends at the old house, we wanted to experience a… Continue Reading “Enchanted 4th”

Painting

Last night I went outside occasionally to see if I could see any Northern Lights. At about 12:30 am or so I gave up and went to bed. EJ told me that he could see them faintly as he drove home, but they weren’t… Continue Reading “Painting”

At Home in the Enchanted Forest

I was so exhausted yesterday that I thought I’d sleep all night. However, about 3 or so I had to go to the bathroom. I went to bed, but Danny decided he wanted outside. Sigh. So I grabbed his leash and out we went.… Continue Reading “At Home in the Enchanted Forest”

Funny Miss Twiggley

This morning as I got out of bed, I glanced out the window and saw a deer grazing right outside. I snuck out to the living room and got my camera, and then snuck back into the bedroom and began taking video and pictures.… Continue Reading “Funny Miss Twiggley”

Projects

The temperature dropped down into the 40’s last night…even though it’s mid-June! I think that is cool (pun intended). The high today was 71. I like the cooler temps. JJ had to be at work at noon today. After he left, the guy EJ… Continue Reading “Projects”

This Land Is Our Land

This morning I began painting our living room. We chose a color called Kira Caramel, which is a neutral beige color that I think is sort of the color of butter. It’s so good to get rid of the dark blue walls! While I… Continue Reading “This Land Is Our Land”

Weekend Busyness

The weekend has been very busy. Friday morning I was barely awake when I got a call from the hospital saying that JJ could have his port out that very day if he wanted to. He also could choose to have a twilight anesthesia when… Continue Reading “Weekend Busyness”

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”

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”

The Last Left Behind

I was hoping that we could get the upstairs bathroom and hallway completely drywalled and mudded so that I could paint them this week, but that didn’t happen. Not much got done on Saturday because weariness caused tempers to flare a bit and other… Continue Reading “The Last Left Behind”

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”
