Out on the Lake and other random April Things

April 14, 2021

The day after Easter I drove past this grand house in Laketown. It’s always fully decked out for any and every holiday, but I thought this Easter decor was above and beyond, maybe because not so many people decorate do much for this holiday. The daffodils were beautiful this year as usual, except a part […]

Outside April

April 10, 2021

Last Saturday morning, April 3rd, Lovely bravely ventured out in the fenced yard. She’d done this with Kevin, but last Saturday she was so eager to get out that when I opened the door she screwed up all her courage to rush past me outside. She was delighted to find the catnip plant which is […]

More crashing around to the end of March

April 9, 2021

A couple of days before I felt like fainting and had to go to the ER, Amy dropped a glass pie pan and it shattered. She swept it up, but felt like there was a shard of glass in the sole of her foot. She tried to dig it out, to no avail, so the […]

A whole new month…

April 4, 2021

It was so chilly on Thursday, with temps in the 40s and strong winds blowing. It’s continues to warm up and today it’s going to be in the 70s. The daffodils are blooming, as well as the hyacinth. Lots of positive changes here for April. Meanwhile, way back in February, Sweetie was so very content, […]

March Madness

March 30, 2021

Cerebral Volume Loss. Not something you want to read about, re: the state of your brain. But let me start at the beginning. Last Wednesday, March 24th, I was messing around the house, doing the stuff I usually do. I’d played a game on my iPad while drinking my lapsang souchong tea, I worked out […]

Marvelous Christmas Gift!

March 12, 2021

As I posted way back in December, Kevin hand-crafted a leather purse for me for Christmas. He has spent the past couple of months doing the dying of leather, and yesterday he completed the project! He worked so hard on it! All that work was worth it. And that’s it for this Friday in March. […]

The Last of the Snow…

March 10, 2021

Hmm, hopefully that’s not wishful thinking. We’ve had a few unseasonably warm days lately, but it’s only March, after all. But even if we get more snow that’s OK because buds are starting to poke up out of the ground and spring is just right around the corner. So even if these aren’t the last […]

Mom’s Special Day

March 6, 2021

Here are a few photos of Mom’s birthday celebration. Amy and Jim did quite a bit of festive decorating, and their house looked fantastic. We bought her a new pair of shoes because of the huge amount of walking we’ve been doing… …and she loved them! Amy made shrimp scampi, Mom’s favorite, plus she made […]

So long, February!

March 3, 2021

This morning, March 3rd, the lake has finally thawed, it’s sunny, and might reach 60 degrees. Whoo hoo! I thought maybe this would be my last post from February but then was a little dismayed to see that there are many photos I haven’t yet posted. What was I doing all month? This is one […]

Happy Birthday Mom!

February 26, 2021

I bet it’s the warmest February 26th we’ve had in a long time. A great day for Mom’s Covid birthday! We will celebrate with a family dinner tonight, but before that there will hopefully be much birthday merriment. No involving going into any places, of course. Here’s one of my favorite travel photos of Mom […]
