Sentimental Saturday
Saturday, May 19, 2018      16 comments

DH left for farmers market right on time but it was another cloudy day with slow activity until just before noon. Hoping for better weather next week. I watched a little of the Royal Wedding-very inspiring. I am finding that each foray g... Read more
And now it's Friday
Friday, May 18, 2018      14 comments

The days fly by. My mood is still up and down but I work hard to keep a positive attitude. I had a call from a sister to DS's old GF. She wants to see her "nephews". I told her no, explained why and asked that she not call me again. She ... Read more
Mother's Day weekend
Monday, May 14, 2018      17 comments

DH had his first farmers market on Saturday and it was a flurry and a hurry to pack up the car an hour earlier than last year's schedule. But we got it done and he was off for his morning of fun. Well, the weather could have been kinder. ... Read more
Moving back to my Happy Place
Saturday, May 12, 2018      16 comments

Slowly but surely, I am getting back but to a new normal. I count my blessings, remind myself how very fortunate I am in so many ways. I think this is just an adjustment in the journey and will leave it at that. ... Read more
Another roller coaster week but tolerable
Friday, May 11, 2018      20 comments

Another soaking of rain last night. Just 1/2 inch but that brings the week's total to almost 1 1/2 inches. I did try to plant in the garden last night but there was a thick, hard crust on the top and mud below. DH and I agreed to back of... Read more
Not much to share but thank you!

Thanks for all the positive comments yesterday. Life certainly pulls the punches when it can. A bright and sunny day and a light breeze. I was able to mow most of the lawn last night before the thunderstorms moved through. Now I need t... Read more
Another graduation day.
Tuesday, May 08, 2018      14 comments

Our second GD graduated from the 6th grade last night and now moves from the elementary school 10 miles from home to the high school across the parking lot behind her house. Sweet for her. The students also had their spring concert-very ... Read more
Graduation Day
Sunday, May 06, 2018      18 comments

It was a wonderful, whirlwind kind of day. In retrospect, this was the 8th graduation for someone in our immediate family from the University of South Dakota. I am thinking it will also be the last but who knows. Eight graduations in 17 ... Read more
Quick Update

So much going on but thought I need to put something out there before the weekend is here and gone. The weather has finally turned to spring and it is time to get the garden planted. DH has some seeds and we will try to get to that on ... Read more
That may become a weekly thing
Sunday, April 29, 2018      17 comments

Now that it is finally spring, I am finding myself yearning to be outside more so Sparking has taken a back seat to yard work, housecleaning, the huge task of downsizing things I no longer need and the daunting task of getting my life/he... Read more
My, what a difference a week makes.
Tuesday, April 24, 2018      19 comments

All the snow has melted, leaving behind seas of mud and soft, squishy lawn. Loving the sunshine and the chance to get outside without the heavy winter coat. The last week was spent getting ready for city-wide clean up. Sort of an Earth ... Read more
Sunday-snow day
Sunday, April 15, 2018      17 comments

Almost all the churches cancelled services due to the snow and the fact that most of the streets had not been cleared. DH and I invited DD and family over for beef stew and homemade buttermilk biscuits and angel food cake. We had a ni... Read more
Friday the 13th and oh, what a day!
Saturday, April 14, 2018      13 comments

Yes, another Friday the 13th and the weatherman, who has been swearing at us for the last week, delivered the first punch of a potent winter storm that will make us all glad to be inside. We had plenty of rain yesterday, some thunder and... Read more
First really nice day
Tuesday, April 10, 2018      15 comments

We had a gorgeous day, the first time we saw 60 degrees on the thermometer since Thanksgiving. The neighbor started his fire pit after dinner tonight and we sat outside for over an hour. Once the sun set, we allowed the fire to die. Ho... Read more
Satisfying Saturday
Saturday, April 07, 2018      20 comments

Another great Saturday! I was in cleaning mode, starting in the kitchen on the telephone desk and cabinet. The 2 bottom doors hold 2 shelves of tea towels, dish cloths, potholders and tablecloths. I sorted and rearranged, just in case I ... Read more
