It Takes a Heavenly Village
Tuesday, July 07, 2020      2 comments

I will start out saying my brother is fine and thankfully uninjured. Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my mom that my brother's dump truck had been hit by a semi that ran a stop sign. She told me right away he was fine, just shook up. ... Read more
Week of the Family Room
Monday, July 06, 2020      5 comments

If you read my "End of June" post, you know I feel like I have been lazy about working on my house since being on furlough. I have decided this is the week I will tackle the family room. I have a plan in my head (and maybe should right it down... Read more

Keep in mind, fireworks that shoot into the air in my state are illegal. It was a loud night in my neighborhood last night. I think some of my neighbors where trying to outdo the city for fireworks. For not being able to "go anywhere" due... Read more

Happy birthday, America! You are 244 years old. Boy have you seen some things in your lifetime. This year has been no exception. Hopefully things get turned around and we head in a positive direction again. The weather this July 4th is... Read more

Even though my daughter napped the afternoon away yesterday, she made a great supper. By instinct, she knows what spices go together and goes on what. She made a great rub for our chicken. I am not sure what she put in but it was tasty. She l... Read more
Nap
Thursday, July 02, 2020      2 comments

My dear daughter and I ran to do our essentials shopping. My store still doesn't do toilet paper on the drive up orders so I have to go in. While we were heading to the check-out, she told me she needs a nap since she is tired. Tired? Oh my l... Read more
Day 183
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      2 comments

Today is day 183. It marks the halfway point of 2020. Hopefully it will be a turning point for the year from what it has been so far. For me, it is so much more. 183 days ago I embarked on what was to be a 100 day goal. 183 days ago I stepp... Read more
End of June
Tuesday, June 30, 2020      2 comments

Today is the last week in June. Where has the month gone? I feel like I really haven't accomplished anything. I have so much I want to do around the house and all the time to do it. I guess after a year plus of mandatory overtime and other i... Read more
Rain Rain
Monday, June 29, 2020      2 comments

I know we need rain. It helps our crops, animals, and even us stay hydrated. It keeps things cleaned up by washing away dirt and goodness knows what else. It gives us green grass, leaves on the trees for shade, and beautiful flowers to enjoy.... Read more
Peaceful Morning
Sunday, June 28, 2020      0 comments

Such a great morning for a walk. My neighborhood is quiet on Sunday mornings. People sleep in and wait to get a jump on the day. I noticed they aren't walking as early on Sundays either. Since it was so quiet, I put some music on my phone (n... Read more
So It is the Weekend

Yet another weekend has arrived. What to do with the time? Being I have been furloughed, I feel like I am on a constant weekend. I try to do all my stuff during the week as to completely enjoy the Saturdays and Sundays I have. I have already ... Read more
Created a Monster
Thursday, June 25, 2020      4 comments

I have created a walking monster. A walking monster that is. My GSD, Thor, has come to love his morning walks. This morning he was ready to go way before me I guess. My daughter noticed him running around with something in his mouth. She go... Read more
Walking Buddies
Wednesday, June 24, 2020      2 comments

With Covid-19 it can be hard to find a walking buddy. Good thing I have 3 "built in" buddies. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I have to take them in 2 rounds. The girls are older and fatter. They can't go as far or fast as my boy. ... Read more
175 Days
Tuesday, June 23, 2020      3 comments

Today marks 175 days in a row of movement. I have done at least 20 minutes every day. Some of my activities have been shoveling snow and mowing the lawn. I realize a rest day is needed. However, I don't walk fast enough to consider it a wor... Read more
Toads Everywhere
Monday, June 22, 2020      1 comments

I was walking my GSD when he had to stop and sniff some free stuff on the curb. It looked harmless so I let him sniff. Something caught my eye while he was sniffing. Turns out it was a baby toad. The baby was so small, my GDS's one "toe" is bi... Read more
