the beginning of May

May 20, 2021

May 2nd, the first family of geese! I think there were about 10 babies. Kevin and I took a wonderful kayak ride that morning. I don’t know why I didn’t take pictures during our trip; we paddled all the way to the end of Long Bay, one of my favorite spots on the lake. We […]

A Unique Biathlon plus lots of crazy Saturday

May 18, 2021

Last Saturday, May 8th, it occurred to me that Kevin and I had taken part in what I decided was a biathlon that I’m sure nobody else on the planet did. We’ve created a new type of biathlon! It won’t be in time for the Olympics this year which is just as well because that’s […]

More from April

May 8, 2021

I was so excited to get my new iphone a couple of weeks ago. I had a 6s+, which was about four years old and had started randomly shutting off for no reason, plus, of course, the new phones has cameras that are light-years better. Or so I hoped… Here’s my first photo, where I […]

April Excitement

April 29, 2021

Ok, “excitement” might be stretching it a bit. Or maybe a lot. But I happened to see a great italian greyhound door mat on facebook and had to buy it for Amy and Jim. Maybe it’s a regular greyhound but I didn’t care because it’s so cute. They draped the mat over this sofa piece […]

Dust Mites!?

April 22, 2021

Amidst all the anxiety, frustration, fear of the unknown and of what tomorrow will bring and general crappiness that started last year with our new Pandemic Reality, there has been one happy thing that’s stood out for me- my nightly conversations with my friend Bev. Each night, after I’ve spent the day either doing stuff […]

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 […]
