My living room is bare of

carrots. The four 5 gallon pails that have been sitting there since last week are now empty and back at the farm. DD brought the grandchildren over today and we spent most of the afternoon making carrot juice. I spent almost 2 hours in t... Read more
As near as I can tell
Saturday, December 07, 2013      17 comments

The Part D rush is over. If anyone failed to call us and check, I guess they are stuck where they are. We lost several clients last year and most were very dear friends we have known for years. Life moves on. The tree is up and decorated... Read more
Packing it all in
Saturday, December 07, 2013      19 comments

I left home early today so that I could be to DD's house to stay with the GC until it was time to go to school. They had a one hour late start. I had walked just one short block and the pager went off. So we had an elderly woman to take to... Read more
Resorting to the phone book
Thursday, December 05, 2013      18 comments

I am trying so hard not to miss any seniors that I am scouring the phone book to be sure. Only 2 more days and I can get back to a normal (?) life. A good friend is in the city (LOL) and will join us for dinner tomorrow night. My friend ... Read more

Total snowfall is 4-6 inches but it is hard to tell as the wind is whipping it around quite briskly now. School started late today and will tomorrow as well. Wind chill advisory is posted until midnight Friday night. BRRR! Ten degrees but ... Read more

It was a very cloudy day. I hadn't checked the weather before I walked to work and was greeted with drizzle and sleet. At least it cleared away and what came down melted. But by midafternoon, it was obvious that the temperature was droppin... Read more
The discovery of a new tool
Monday, December 02, 2013      15 comments

I would love to say there is a new tool on SP and there probably is but I am talking about something else. Tada! I discovered the value of the pickax that DS2 left behind in his move from the house to the apartment. What exactly he used ... Read more
30 down, 85 to go

DH and I spent another hour in the garden and managed to get another 30 feet of carrots dug. They are so sweet and delicious. We do intend to freeze some when I get a stray moment. The juicer is sitting on the counter and ready to pounce... Read more
Here's the proof
Saturday, November 30, 2013      19 comments

I have been saying all along that we have some very large and long carrots. So I will show you. But first, I will tell you that we spent 90 minutes working in the garden to dig the carrots you see. It is official. We only have one row left... Read more
Covering a lot of ground today

We decorated the church this morning and it is lovely. Our group is DD and family, her in-laws and DH and I. A small group but we had such fun. We took a short break this afternoon so I could do laundry and then DH and I dug another 30 ... Read more
My Non-Traditional Thanksgiving
Thursday, November 28, 2013      15 comments

It was an interesting day at the café. One of the young workers showed up after all. He came to South Dakota to live with his father about 3 years ago. He lived in Norway with his grandmother, who could no longer care for him. His mother ... Read more
My Plans for Thanksgiving
Wednesday, November 27, 2013      18 comments

This will definitely be a non-traditional Thanksgiving. DH and I are staying home and I will be working at the café. The kids who normally would pick up a shift will be gone and there really is no one else so I offered to help bus tables... Read more
The big chill is coming
Tuesday, November 26, 2013      17 comments

Today was pretty windy and cold. We will have a couple of nicer days and by the middle of next week, we may struggle to get much above zero. Fall will be a fleeting memory. I am not sure who is really ready for that this soon. But such i... Read more
I'm getting into juicing
Monday, November 25, 2013      16 comments

My big score from Saturday-the juicer-took center stage last night. I was about 1/2 of a 5 gallon pail of carrots and set the juicer up on the counter. I read the instructions, assembled the juicer and proceeded to see if all the hype was ... Read more

Very pleasant day-worship services and time spent with the family. I spent an hour after church moving things around and making room for the Christmas tree, I intend to put it up on Friday or Saturday. MIL and SIL came for lunch and we had... Read more
