Beyond SISU

This morning EJ and I should have been off to the hospital for EJ’s MRI. However, yesterday evening his doctor emailed him that his recent x-ray revealed that there are metal slivers in his hand from his years of working as a machinist. Even…

After the Storm

The clouds were thick and low-hanging today. It was cool and misty all day today–rainy enough to need windshield wipers on, but not rainy enough to drum on the roof of our house. Weather like today always reminds me of the old children’s poem,…

The Eighth Chicken

We had severe storms during last night. I woke once to the sound of heavy rain tap-tap-tapping on the skylight in the bathroom but I fell back to sleep again. In the morning I heard that trees were down and many people lost their…

Wild, Wacky, Weather Award

Wow. Michigan gets some crazy weather at times, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a weekend with such wild, wacky weather like this one! With rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow, I think Michigan is deserving of a major Award. Yesterday morning I…

In The Midst of the Storm

I slept in late this morning, and while I slept EJ did most of my morning chores for me, which I thought was incredibly kind. I opened my eyes to a beautiful snow-covered world. I also woke up to no Internet. A couple hours…

Mixed-up Storm

Two days after her after her spay/hernia surgery, Hannah Joy was acting like her normal self. The vet said we have to try to keep her from running or jumping for ten days while her incision heals, which isn’t easy because she is exuberant…

Oh, Spring, Where Art Thou?

I rode into work with EJ this morning so I could have the suburban to drive myself to physical therapy later in the afternoon. I was a bit stressed because I haven’t yet regained confidence in being able to drive after fracturing my hand….

I Was There

I like witnessing and being a part of history. I remember my Mom making us kids watch President Nixon’s resignation speech years ago. She made us watch it because “it is history.” I was too young at the time to appreciate it, but now…

Rain, Rain, And Other Things

I started to write this post on Saturday evening, but EJ and I decided to have a campfire out in our yard instead. I’m only now finding the time to continue my interrupted post. In fact, I have repeatedly tried to work on this…

Stormy Anniversary

We usually keep informed about the weather because….well, we really enjoy watching the weather. Knowing the forecasts helps me decide what to wear for the day, or whether or not I should water the garden, or whether to expect severe storms. When I was…

Fairy Eggs

Our weather has been rather wacky lately. One day I’m wearing a hoodie and shoes, the next day I’m back to a coat, boots, hat, and mittens. One day we have temperatures up into the 50s and 60s and our snow melts, the  next…

The Worst Is Yet To Come…

Early this morning it began to snow, and snow, and snow. And the wind began to blow, blow, blow. The wind swirled the snow around like snow-nadoes. We are under a Winter Storm Warning through Thursday…with more snow on the way for the weekend. Danny and…

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…

When the Trees Get Angry

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and Hanukkah! Because of the ice storm that was forecasted to hit yesterday, we decided to stay home on Christmas/Hanukkah. We probably could have gone to the matinée showing of the newest Star Wars movie…

Let It Snow….

I sort of woke at 5 a.m. this morning and then Danny wanted me to take him outside. He is the most considerate dog I’ve ever encountered. He waits until he knows I’m awake before he asks to go out. He also waits until…
