Fall!

September 22, 2021

Kevin informed me that it’s going to officially be fall at 2:20 this afternoon, in just over two hours from now, so this new fall website banner is ahead of schedule, something I do manage to achieve once every lifetime or so. Meanwhile, back on September 2nd I took a boat ride by myself and […]

Yeah, so

September 16, 2021

happy anniversary to us. We were married 15 years ago today and at this exact time on that day it was official and we were probably making toasts or something at the Motor Boat Club. I got sad looking at some of our wedding photos because so many people are dead, or we’re no longer […]

More August Fun

September 7, 2021

On Aug. 16th Kevin removed the very old deck off the bedroom and is in the process of replacing it with concrete tiles. Riley has been excited about it ever since. He finds it a fascinating place to sniff and creep around in. Kevin unearthed this giant slab, part of the old patio off the […]

As the summer whooshes to a close…

September 6, 2021

September, really? It was almost fall-like for a few days but now it’s hot again, but not into the triple digits at least. Way back in August, Riley kept trying to relax. Ditto Lester. He’s lying on the case for our giant inflatable swan that we pull behind the boat and it has become a […]

The State Fair!

August 23, 2021

It was nice to go back to the fair since it was cancelled last year. The Sunday before it opened I decided to drive into the fairgrounds to see stuff since I figured that when at the fair I wouldn’t be able to walk everywhere I wanted to because of the lingering knee pain. I […]

Kevin’s New Shed

August 17, 2021

As I mentioned previously, Kevin bought a great big shed Sunday Aug. 1st. It came in a big box, but the box was smaller than I thought it’d be to hold such a giant shed. It required a whole lot of assembly. Here’s the bottom 12 x 12 frame. Spot helped him the entire time. […]

Baby birds in the mast plus yet another sting

July 28, 2021

It’s nearing the end of July, and I just got my second wasp sting of the summer. This morning I was trying to rotate a big planter/bench that’s on our back deck off the bedroom. Dad planted coral bells in the planter, and the ones at the end gets more sun so it’s shiny, but […]

Alive!

July 4, 2021

I lived through my surgery, yay for that! Gee, it’s been way over a week since it happened. Much has happened, but not so much. First – two days before my surgery, June 22nd, Les Paul and Riley were on top of their cat house and suddenly there was something out in the yard and […]

No high heels!

June 24, 2021

Jeez, where has the month gone? Well, oing yard work. Lots of yard work. It’s 6:18 a.m. right now and we have to leave at 7:30 for my torn meniscus surgery. It’s so lovely and quiet at this time of day, but I doubt that will make me get up this early on a regular […]

More May Stuff

June 4, 2021

It suddenly got super hot around here but it cools off at night which is great. I have photos from the end of May, but these are mostly from May 22nd, after Kevin and I took that lovely kayak trip. We need to do that again soon. Anyway, that afternoon I babysat the dogs who […]
