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 […]

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 […]

Finding my inner artist

April 27, 2022


So Mr. Ken and I came home from our weekly hike and I was excited to see two packages from Amazon awaiting us. Mr. Ken looked at me and said, “What did you order from Amazon this time?” I replied, “Um, I can’t remember.” And then Mr. Ken gave me another look. You all know […]

Life with a car guy

April 20, 2022


So dear Mr. Ken is a car guy, above all else. I am glad for that since I am not. He even looks forward to taking my car to get the oil changed. I think that may be because there is a Dunkin Donuts on the way to the oil change place. 🙂 Since I […]

The guys are back

April 13, 2022


Our beloved little friends, Sir Oliver, Toby and Sir Angus are back with a very special message for Mr. Ken. It was Mr. Ken’s birthday earlier this week. Happy birthday to my dear husband. 🙂 A special thanks for one of Mr. Ken’s friends for photoshopping this image.

Reflections during a hike

April 6, 2022


Mr. Ken and I are very happy that we are able to enjoy nature at our favorite lake. During the Pandemic, it was too crowded, but now it is not. Yay. Unfortunately Mr. Ken recently broke his wrist and he has to wear a brace. At least it is not a cast. To his credit, […]

The world’s oldest gangsta’

March 30, 2022


Covid restrictions are less and less these days. Even Mr. Ken and I have ventured out of our house more. We are happy to be able to hike around our favorite lake, which is also where we kayak. When everything was shut down and people were at home, this place got very crowded. We went […]

Spring is coming!

March 2, 2022


It has been a long winter, to say the least. Yes, the days are getting longer and the sun is getting brighter, but we just had a big snowstorm with 9 inches of snow. It was all of 9 degrees Farenheit (-13 degrees Celsius) the day after the storm. Brrrrr. But spring is coming! How […]

Having fun in the snow

February 9, 2022


Toby has been dying to get out and play in the snow. We bought him a little snow saucer and he gave it a try today. Even though he’s never been on the snow before, he insisted on going down the expert slope. Somehow, he managed to stay on his saucer! What do you do […]

Snow day!

February 2, 2022


Well, the big snowstorm is over and the sun is shining once more. Our guys from across the Pond didn’t see much snow in the UK and were eager to see what it looked like outside. This is what they saw when we opened the door this morning! What did you see when you opened […]
