Snowed

These months that EJ has been off work, he did most of the cooking so I could crochet to fulfill orders. He also took care of snowblowing the driveway. Now that he is back at work, I have lost both my cook and my…

Einstein

I’m sitting in my chair with Hannah Joy on my lap, sipping coffee while I watch the snow fall. We had a very mild winter until mid-January, when we experienced very frigid temperatures and even colder wind chills. After the polar vortex moved on,…

Freezing Ordeal

It is so f-f-f-freezing cold here this week! As I begin this post (at 7:30 am, sipping a cup of hot coffee), it is 1 (f) degrees. the windchill makes it feel much colder. When I took Hannah Joy outside this morning, the cold…

Michigan Winter

We’ve had a very mild winter this year with relatively warm temperatures and not much snow. Winter finally arrived this week with about a foot of snow. EJ snowblowed the driveway on Thursday but by the next morning the driveway was snowed in again. …

Small Joys

I have had a few very difficult days lately when I have felt a great deal of anxiety and depression about our uncertain future. Some days I feel as if I can’t breathe as I worry about our dwindling savings, about what we will…

In This Liminal Space

It’s been almost a week since I’ve written a post. I’ll try to fill in the blanks. EJ had his MRI last Wednesday. We won’t know the results until this coming Tuesday when he meets with his doctor. We are hoping/praying that he is…

Autumn Joy

Today was an absolutely beautiful autumn day. The sun was shining and the sky was the shade of deep blue that only occurs in the autumn. The warm winds were 15 to 20 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph. The leaves flew…

Cloud Sculptures

Today we finally had sunny skies. Well, we had mostly sunny skies. Ok, we actually had patches of sun and blue peeking through clouds. But it didn’t rain. It rained off and on through the rest of the week. I didn’t mind, although I…

Life in Hidden Places

Somehow, the week has zoomed by and it’s already over. Tuesday was JJ’s day off from work and we were busy. We both had errands to do so we combined our tasks and went together. Our first stop was at the grocery store. JJ’s…

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…

Early May

Warm days are alternating with cooler days. Today was a cool, damp day, but the temperatures are forecast to rise steadily to a high in the low 70s by the weekend. Yay! The cool days make me feel like curling up with a book…

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…

The End of February

I’m surprised that I haven’t written since February 17th. Time went fast. The second half of February has gone better than the first half, although I do feel a bit worse for wear. I have mostly been busy crocheting. I have an order for…

Life on the Run

This was one of those absolutely crazy days that feels as if life is a comedy routine. It was running here, dropping EJ there, dropping JJ there, picking up EJ. It was sort of funny. Both EJ and JJ had appointments they had to…

Anniversary

Today was my and EJ’s 25th wedding anniversary. Anniversaries are always a time to reflect on memories of the years we’ve spent together: Pleasant and difficult times, laughter and tears, joys and sorrows. I think the card EJ gave me really describes our marriage:…
