Lily turns 9 today and life just keeps getting better. Her optimism and her love for animals makes each day a fun adventure.
Things that relate more to me than to you.
It’s been 6 days since I posted to, or read social media. I took a vacation and actually disconnected; well, sort of disconnected. I still used GPS and took photos on my phone, but no Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram updates. I thought it’d be hard but it turns out that it wasn’t so bad and […]
My parents farm has more than just fresh air and four-wheeling, it also has baby animals! Kittens is what drew us down there over the weekend. Three little balls of claws and energy. Three little kittens, and one little girl in heaven. She carried them around, put them in baskets, purses, and loved them as […]
A week ago we adopted a dog. His name is Zero and he’s a lot of fun. Zero is a tiny little thing at only 10 pounds. He actually makes our cat look big. He’ll get a little bit bigger, but not too big. He’s also kinda of lazy too. I don’t think he’s your […]
Over the years we’ve collected a lot of Legos. Some were from kits, some from friends, some my parents found at their house and brought them to us. We love our Legos, but how do you organize Legos? When I was a kid, I recall just tossing them into a box and you dig for […]
I went with my daughter’s 3rd-grade class to the Mill City Museum today and it was great. This was my first time visiting and I was amazed at how much there was to do and how much there was to learn. I know it was a field trip for the kids, but I enjoyed it very […]
Today we had to put down our 13-year-old cat Chunk. It seems like just yesterday we brought him home. We love him a lot but also knew that was time. He had diabetes and it had taken over. He wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t cuddle, wouldn’t do those things he’s always done. He could hardly even move. […]
I’ve recently become a big fan of rechargeable led motion sensor lights. I’ve got one at one end of the living room and it lights up the room enough for me not to run into something. I’ve got two on our stairs going to the basement and one on the stairs going upstairs. All I […]
I always have good intentions to do something creative, but this year I actually got a few projects done. One is a reversible scarecrow snowman that I my wife saw on Pinterest. It’s about three feet tall and has weathered the weather pretty well so far as it sits outside our front door. The clothes pins […]
Went golfing for the first time in many years today with a friend. We had a great time and didn’t lose too many balls. The worst hole was this one as there was no way I was going to make it over the marsh. Basically you had the tee, the marsh, and then the hole. […]
