A Day Of Rest

Brad is at church with the grandchildren. I’m still battling allergies but I think I’m beginning to win the battle and stay out of the doctor’s office this time. House is clean and tidy, beds made, etc. I’m having yogurt, an English muffin and French press coffee. The Cat Turd mugs are in the dishwasherContinue reading “A Day Of Rest”

Afternoon Coffee Break

Since yesterday was rather stressful I fixed myself a nice cup of coffee in the French press before I got settled in my recliner. It really did the trick and was very easy and quick to prepare. Coffee prepared this way has a richer taste than coffee made in the drip maker. The rest ofContinue reading “Afternoon Coffee Break”

Happy Birthday Jacob

Our grandson, Jacob, is nine years old today. That doesn’t seem possible. We’ll have him out for the day soon, maybe take him to Chick Fil A for lunch. He was used to being the youngest until his baby brother arrived nearly two years ago. Now he gets to be a big brother to Gabriel.Continue reading “Happy Birthday Jacob”

Success!

I picked Joshua up at 10 am and we headed to town, talked to the young man at Game Stop and after checking with Audrey it was decided that they just needed a new game console. I was able to replace the Playstation 4 console at the farm with a Playstation 4 Pro, a refurbishedContinue reading “Success!”

Feeling Sad

Had a good day with Joshua yesterday. When we were coming out to the house after running an errand in town I thought there were a lot of brown needles on the last remaining pine tree but the sun was in my eyes and it was difficult to tell much. When I was returning homeContinue reading “Feeling Sad”

A Date With My Grandson

Today is my day to spend with eleven year old Joshua who it seems is in need of a grandma fix. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do today. He is a joy to be around and we have plenty to do and I’m sure he’d like to pick out a favorite dvd fromContinue reading “A Date With My Grandson”

It’s A Guy Thing

The saga of the Little Red Bull continues. The neighbor came over Monday morning to get his bull, but he was nowhere to be seen, ditto Grover. All the cows and calves were up at the barn, but no bulls. The neighbor went to look for his and came back a little later to reportContinue reading “It’s A Guy Thing”

Time For A Staycation

We’ve both had about all the housecleaning we, or our sinuses, can stand for the time being so we’re taking the weekend off from Fall Cleaning. I’m on the verge of a sinus/ear infection and taking homeopathics to keep it under control. Time to enjoy what we’ve accomplished around the house and get some restContinue reading “Time For A Staycation”

Just A Little More Summer Heat

I’m enjoying working on my current Ludlow Shawl. This BFL/Nylon yarn is easy to knit and has good stitch definition. Probably should have bought more of this yarn when I had the chance. It’s back up to 95° today. We missed most of the rain that passed through here but at least the grass isContinue reading “Just A Little More Summer Heat”
