The latest adventure of our guys

July 13, 2022


Our little guys, Sir Angus, Toby and Sir Oliver, provide us with lots of smiles. Here they are in their latest adventure. Mr. Ken bought a new birdbath since our old one was cracked. The guys took one look at it and decided it is perfect for a swimming pool so in they jumped! What […]

Reasons to get up in the morning

June 29, 2022


I look forward to every day. And this isn’t because I have a big purpose in my life, it is because of the simple joys I feel every morning. What I love about my mornings: Coffee! We bought these pretty mugs as souvenirs on last year’s trip to Vermont. Every time I use one, I […]

First kayak adventure of the season

June 22, 2022


So the happy day arrived; Mr. Ken and I were all set to go kayaking. In deference to my shoulder injury and to us getting older in general, Mr. Ken bought a nifty new kayak rack system. With this new system, you only have to lift the kayak to about hip height, place it on […]

It’s kayak time!

June 15, 2022


Oh happy day!  It’s time to start kayaking.  We lost last year since I was recovering from shoulder surgery.  It was a bit stop and go this year since Mr. Ken broke his wrist a few months ago.   But, we are good to go now and I can’t wait. Here they are! All ready to […]

30 years ago . . .

June 1, 2022


I can’t believe it was 30 years ago that dear Mr. Ken and I were joined in holy matrimony. It seems like only ten or so years ago. I wouldn’t change any minute of it. I met Mr. Ken on a blind date. We ate dinner at the Prestige Diner in New Jersey. I knew […]

The adventures of Toby

May 25, 2022


Our little friends, Sir Oliver, Sir Angus and Toby continue to keep us amused. Toby has found a new fun thing, being in his little box. He just loves his little box and spends all day in there. He looks so nice and cozy, we can’t help but smile when we see him. What made […]

Your weekly dose of cuteness

May 18, 2022


We had very exciting news at the Loderick household this week. We had not one, but two litters of baby chipmunks! Baby CC, who lives in the front, had 3 little ones. And Shorty Pants, who lives in the back, had 4 little ones. They are just too cute. The babies remind me of puppies […]

The wait is over

May 11, 2022


So our beloved Toby loves hummingbirds. He has been anxiously awaiting their arrival back from South America, where they winter. (Yes, these teeny, tiny birds fly all the way to and from South America.) Well, the little birds have arrived. Toby is happy watching them come to the feeder. If you look closely at the […]

Not quite ready to leave the house yet

May 4, 2022


As the Covid news gets a bit better, it should be time to venture out more. At least for some of us who have been hermits for the past two years. Last Sunday, Mr. Ken and I went to a talk at our local library. I was a little bit nervous going there since the […]
