Things have been hot for the past few days, and will continue to be hot for the next while. It's not even noon as I write this, and we're already at 25C, with a "real feel" of 29C. We've also had a lot of thunderstorm warnings, but aside from one quick pass, they have been … Continue reading Finally getting rain – and, ouch
Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. Well. As much as we could! I drove my daughter to work in the morning, which meant I was in town late enough for the grocery store to be open, so I picked up a few things before going to see my husband.

Today, I sent in our meter reading. Now that it's been over a year since we've had the electricity switched over to our name, we currently have a full 12 months of billing history, beginning in December of 2017.

I did, however, manage to get a photo of a blue jay today. For the past few weeks, even if … Continue reading Blue for You
Today was a day when we could really tell that Someone is watching over us! This morning, my husband had an appointment to get a CT scan. For this, we had to go to a small city that is an hour's drive away. The hospital is at the edge of town, though, so we didn't … Continue reading Watching Over Us
It has been just past 2 months since all of us have been living here, in my childhood home. Three months for my husband and younger daughter. It's been rather tumultuous, all things considered.
