A cold front has moved in and we are expecting April rain and snow showers. Hubby and I planted the apple trees that arrived on Tuesday. Yesterday afternoon, when it was 67 degrees, we planted an English walnut and 4 elderberry bushes in t... Read more
Pay it forward? How to do that while isolated.
Monday, March 30, 2020      13 comments

I did see one car parked on Main Street yesterday. The other entire 6 blocks was totally empty. I was thinking of a way to pay it forward and show someone I cared but that didn't happen. At least not in the way I thought. A young man, a ... Read more
Today is Sunday

No church services in town, all the restaurants are closed and since it is Sunday, no other businesses are open except for the convenience store/grocery store. Hubby and I will stay home and only venture out for the newspaper and chores. S... Read more

Social distancing is work but the best thing you can do is smile and wave. Even if you cannot have a real conversation, at least you can be polite and positive. The world has changed but we can change with it. A simple smile and a wave m... Read more
Trying Thursday
Thursday, March 26, 2020      10 comments

Trying but not as in attempting but trying our patience. More and more stores and businesses are closing and in a very small town, that is concerning. Everything seems to have ground to a halt. We have gotten connections to church servic... Read more
Educate yourself
Wednesday, March 25, 2020      14 comments

There is so much information and misinformation on the news and the internet. We need to educate ourselves to stay safe. We also need to make sure the information we share is correct. Our governor has ordered all schools closed until May 1... Read more
Social distancing and common sense
Tuesday, March 24, 2020      12 comments

When you live in a small town and work in a small office, and when you are the only person in that office, social distancing is pretty easy. Few people come in the door as they have busy lives. Service work presents itself with a phone c... Read more
The new normal is so strange
Monday, March 23, 2020      15 comments

So far, we have been fortunate not to have any cases of COVID19 in our immediate area. We are practicing social distancing with no school, no church and no other activities. We do have a small coffee group that basically says hi and goodby... Read more
A case of the fidgets
Friday, March 20, 2020      10 comments

Everyone is getting fidgety since we are practicing social distancing, self isolation and all the changes in the world. And people are getting short tempered as well. At the convenience store, they are no longer selling fresh doughnuts in ... Read more
Shall we have rain, snow or both?
Thursday, March 19, 2020      11 comments

A wet storm system is moving in and we are to have rain turning to snow and maybe back to rain. It won't matter as whatever precipitation falls, it will only add to the excess water we have and promote more flooding. One of our bus drivers... Read more
Almost like a ghost town
Wednesday, March 18, 2020      13 comments

I had an appointment to see the eye doctor yesterday. The office had called on Monday to remind me of my appointment and even had several cancellations in case I wanted to come earlier. I kept the time as I know how easy it is to get bus... Read more
Motivated to stay well
Monday, March 16, 2020      15 comments

A new week and a lot of uncertainty ahead. We are avoiding crowds to lessen the chance of getting ill. Even in a small town, everyone seems to be taking precautions. Some people seem to be over vigilant and others are very blasé. We will t... Read more
What's in the future Friday?
Friday, March 13, 2020      11 comments

The world has certainly changed since the beginning of the New Year and it looks strange and forbidding. Out of concern for personal safety, many large venues are closing their doors to spectators, public audiences and crowds in general... Read more
Ever watchful and staying safe
Wednesday, March 11, 2020      15 comments

We have reports of 5 people with the coronavirus in our state and one man may have died from the virus. We are calling this "presumptive" since not all of the test results are back. All of these individuals had traveled recently but the ma... Read more
A windy March Monday
Monday, March 09, 2020      12 comments

The weekend was very pleasant and windy but it really encouraged what snow was left to melt and the soil left uncovered to dry. Our neighbor used his skid loader to level the ground where the blue spruce tree was removed. It fell down la... Read more
