#21374 – A.C. calls into question my heritage

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 I've heard it said that Northerners move south for the warm weather, but the only reason they stay is because of air conditioning. A.C. Saves the South We've been without A.C. in our downstairs for about 2 weeks.  It's been, shall we say, interesting.  At first, I was stoic.  Hey, we … Continue reading #21374 – A.C. calls into question my heritage


Monday, July 10, 2017 Farm scenes... beauty and stillness.... Then there is my real life. On a routine trip to Home Depot, I locked the keys in the car.  In my defense, I was in Don's truck so I wasn't exactly walking through my normal day, but yep, through the truck window I could see … Continue reading #21373

#21632 – 21372

The days are long, but the years are short... And just like that July has come and gone.  I could beat myself up for neglecting this practice, but the days were full and mostly good.  Days where I was grabbing the last bit of daylight before falling in the bed.  I can't berate myself for … Continue reading #21632 – 21372

#21361, Don takes notice

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 2017 This morning before finishing my first cup of coffee, Don hands me his iPad. "Pick one," he says.  It's open to a scrolling list of shower curtains on Amazon. In response to my bewildered look, he says, "Ours is disgusting."  I burst out laughing.  HASHTAG TRUTH #TRUTH. More truth telling,  I … Continue reading #21361, Don takes notice

#21357, The Great Wall

SATURDAY,  JUNE 24, 2017 THE WALL IS FINISHED. The rock wall, once envisioned, became an ever-present task. I couldn't focus on anything else in the yard because I wanted that wall.  We've had the middle section for about 10 years, but in the last year, I realized the wall needed to be extended on both … Continue reading #21357, The Great Wall

#21356, Slow and steady

FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 2017 I spend my life with a constant To Do List.  It's not a great virtue, but I love lists and I love checking things off.  The down side is I'm never finished and I'm always working on the next thing.  It's very hard to get me to stop and enjoy the … Continue reading #21356, Slow and steady
