Another Birthday

Today is my brother-in-law Kurt’s birthday. September just seems to be chock-full of them! He doesn’t read this, but ‘Happy Birthday!’ to him just the same!

Hopefully today is the last hot day of the year. I keep thinking I need some sort of weather tracker on this site so I can remember year-to-year what it was like, but it is the tail end of September and today is supposed to have a high in the low 90s. Yikes. It is too hot. Bleh.

Have a good one, everybody. 🙂

Birthday Thoughts

Today is my cousin Steven’s birthday, and it would have been my Mom’s 84th (I had they typo of ‘94th’ before) birthday. He came out to the funeral, and reminded me that they were Birthday Buddies. Our family is sending a sweet little greeting to show him our love. (I’d show it here, but again, […]

Pleasantly cool

It has not been a billion degrees here, so the air conditioner hasn’t been running, and of course the furnace wouldn’t be on yet. (Insert chuckle here.) When we got home, the house had been closed up for several days and the ‘old, weird house’ smell was pretty evident. Chalk that up to the bat […]

Back in the saddle.

It was a good first day back. When I was in Colorado, it felt like I was outside time – like I had never even lived in Seward. It was so strange. Anyway, it was right back into the thick of things. The children had made me several signs along the lines of ‘Welcome Back!’ […]

Wading back in

Lloyd and I are home. We drove the 11 1/2 hours in one shot yesterday. (It usually takes a bit longer, but Lloyd broke some speeding laws for a while.) The temperature dipped down to 36 degrees on one side of Eisenhower Tunnel and was 46 on the other side. It was chilly, and reminded […]
