We Did It!

The prayers of a faithful people have been answered today on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Roe vs Wade has been overturned. It is now up to the states to decide the question of abortion and at last count there are fourteen states that have outlawed abortion including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana andContinue reading “We Did It!”

Unearthed Another UFO

I had started this Ludlow Shawl back when the weather was cold and put it away to work on socks. I was looking for something in one of the baskets in the living room and found this project. Since I’m working on UFO’s it’s perfect. This is some of my hand-spun yarn and it’s allContinue reading “Unearthed Another UFO”

Where Did The Time Go?

This day has flown by and here it is after 11:00 pm! It’s been raining for several hours and we are enjoying the soothing sound of rain on the roof. We haven’t done much today. I made chicken salad for sandwiches for our lunch and Brad drove in to pick up pizza for dinner. He’sContinue reading “Where Did The Time Go?”

Retirement is Awesome

Some days it’s still hard to believe that Brad is really retired. But, it’s true! I have always been fond of saying that my time is mine to do with what I choose and now Brad can say the same. We rarely need to get up early anymore. We schedule appointments for late morning orContinue reading “Retirement is Awesome”

Aftermath of the Storm

We had some severe weather last night and the storm warning lasted until 1:00 am. There were folks without power, tree limbs down, hail damage all around us but we weathered it well. I took this photo a couple of hours before the storm hit, trying to get a good shot of the setting sunContinue reading “Aftermath of the Storm”

Still Feels Like Summer

It’s almost 8 pm, 85° with barely a breath of air moving outside this evening. I know our weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but this is almost the middle of May and it’s a bit warm for this time of the year. Thank goodness we upgraded our A/C two years ago. Well,Continue reading “Still Feels Like Summer”

Inclement Weather and Indoor Activities

It stormed off and on most of last night and kept us awake for quite awhile. Just about the time we’d drop back off to sleep we’d wake up to another clap of thunder loud enough to shake the house. It was a wild night to say the least and we had less than anContinue reading “Inclement Weather and Indoor Activities”

It’s Friday!

I just got through watching Bongino’s podcast for today and I love it when Joe does his best 1960’s game show host voice with “Iiiiit’s Friiiiiiidaaaaay!” Somehow, Thursday eluded me and I totally forgot to post something. Gosh. Blink and you miss something. I really enjoyed the podcast today and I’m eagerly awaiting the releaseContinue reading “It’s Friday!”

Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans

I am so done with wind. There is so much stuff in the air and Brad and I both are battling allergies. Our M.D. called in a steroid dose pack for each of us to stop this crud before it gets worse. Neither of us can afford to end up with respiratory infections. I hadContinue reading “Wind, Allergies, And A Change of Plans”

Good Day For Soup

It was cool and windy today so the potato soup was a big hit. I washed and cubed two big baking potatoes, skins on, added chopped celery and red onion and a quart and a half of homemade chicken broth, sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and a dash of ground chipotle chili pepper. ItContinue reading “Good Day For Soup”
