A Year of Driving; A Driving Year

One year ago today, perhaps one year ago this moment, I looked up from my tea and said, "It sure would be cheaper to live if we didn't have a house to take care of." And the other responsible mature adult in the family, rather than laughing at my insanity or rolling her eyes at … Continue reading »

Alone At Last!

Last Saturday was a special day. For a few hours Joel and I were alone together, without Fiona. It's the first time in many weeks. We love her dearly but she so needed time to play with a friend. And we so needed some time just the two of us to relax and visit.

Fiona is Enjoying the Rain

Yesterday it was a beautiful sunny day. Fiona and her new friends played outside quite a bit. When we lived in California Fiona didn't play outside much. We didn't have much of a yard and it wasn't safe to let her play in the unfenced area in the front. So she's been more of an … Continue reading »
