The day began muggy and cloudy. And stayed muggy even after the sun showed up. If that was the only different thing about our day in May, there would be nothing much to ponder tonight. But there are things to ponder. I can't be specific for reasons of privacy. The unexpected incidents by themselves on… Continue reading A Different Sort of Saturday
I have been around to John 10 often in the last couple of years. I know this because of my journal. The big idea from this passage, for me, continues to be the contrast between the thief stuff and having life in abundance. What’s your life like? Your attitude, your general train of thought? What’s… Continue reading Abundant Life
It's that fleeting week in May when the ditches and bogs bloom in golden pools of Marsh Marigold. When we're driving Rt 77 between Hayward and Minong, I always think we should stop and get a picture. But we're habitually focused on our destination and who has time? I put the house plants out on… Continue reading Spring Finches & Marsh Marigold
It finally got warm out. Now we can begin summer. Blossoming and gardening can proceed. Charlotte and children walked with me yesterday. Of course the boys had to ride their bikes out ahead. When we got to our turning around point, they were picking themselves up from a "crash", which obviously hadn't amounted to much.… Continue reading Happy Stuff

Tomorrow is another day. New mercy. New energy. I thank God for rest this night.
Just a picture post. Words later. Please enjoy. Goodnight.
They all came back. The fancy daisies, Jacobs Ladder, lilacs, spirea, and the Gladys rose. And the beaver pond are bigger n better than ever. It's mother's day weekend. Do you remember where you were and what you did for Mother's Day last year? I was finally hitting the wall about lock-down messing with our… Continue reading The Return Of A Garden
Elv says it's a clear bright, starlit night out there. It's a cozy, fire-in-the-stoves evening in here. Oh my, but it's good to be here. We saw a moose on Cty Road 3 tonight on our way in. He was sort of mottled looking because he's changing his coat right now, but big and moose… Continue reading Buck Mt Cabin
Today, Elv and I worked on house keeping chores inside and outside the Innsbruck. Elvs has an only slightly raised eyebrow attitude about my latest brainstorm to renovate the window treatments here. It's a good plan. You'll see. There's my first and only glimpse of Mt Rainier. I was in Seattle for an hour yesterday… Continue reading Innsbruck
