In my last blog I talked about how I got started in the Do-It-Yourself world. As I mentioned, after a while I realized that I needed to find ways to expand my knowledge so I could safely tackle more complex projects such as home wiring and auto repair. I was fortunate to have a good […]

Hello there! This is Nancy’s dear husband, Mr. Ken, sitting in for Nancy for a few weeks as she recuperates from her recent shoulder surgery to repair an injured rotator cuff. She was thrilled when I offered to be a guest blogger for a few weeks until she is able pound out her own blogs […]

So I come home from a walk the other day and I noticed a rather large box sitting in our front steps. Mmm, it kind of looks like a box that a refrigerator would come in, but I don’t think Mr. Ken ordered a new one. As I come inside, Mr. Ken excitedly tells me […]

It has been a long and rather dark winter, but spring is here! I love Easter because of the promise of new life. Since I have been taking more walks, I have joyfully noticed the early spring flowers like crocuses coming up. Happy Easter! Happy Spring! Happy Passover!

It sure has been a tough year, made even tougher by the fact that the Peeps factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, closed down because of Covid. This made for a sad, Peepless year.

It was time for another road trip this weekend. And where else would we go but to our favorite Dairy Queen to get a Blizzard treat. This time we brought the “guys” with us, Sir Oliver and Sir Angus. As you can see they enjoyed the Blizzard too. We got our favorite, cappuccino heath bar […]

These days, it is the little things that make my day. For one, it is fresh corn from our local farmstand. It can’t get much fresher than this; they pick it every morning and bring it to the farm stand. Not to be forgotten, but we even have little corn ears for Sir Oliver and […]

Kayaking is my “happy place” these days. When we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. We were out the other day and even though it was a cloudy, cool day, it was still good. There was some sunshine in the distance so I was going to write a deep, serious blog post […]
