Jan 6th. 2023 I put the correct date. Its always hard to write the correct year in Jan…like through June. So I need to do an update and I think I’m going to make it quick and to the point. I went ahead and gifted my kids something quite original and after the committments were made…I began to wonder what …

December 26th 2022 About 17 years ago (or more, I don’t know) Mark and I were driving into Newaygo (“the back way”) down Division from his grandparents house off Kathy street (where Mark also did the last part of his growing up) and saw that this really cute little house was for sale.

December 23rd 2022 I never know where to start…or end. I can’t believe Kiyah is all sitting up and pulling herself up and growing so big. We know times flies but yet we still comment on it. It bothers me, however, I still find myself saying it. So we just returned from our annual Cookies and Caroling. We used to …

December 11. 7 months exactly. Last night we got in about 10:20pm and even though I had no business pouring a glass of wine…I did. I sipped on that as I cleaned up the tornado left behind when getting ready last minute for the wedding. Three ladies, a young man and a baby can leave quite disaster behind with little …

November 29. Hatcher finally finished his last drive for his Segment 1 Drivers permit. He was signed up to start May 9th but …

I was born 6 days before her. We have done all of like together and I hope we continue to do so no matter …

Entering November

Nov 1st What a way to start November..it was beautiful weather. I cooked some of ourdinner outside and we plopped down on the deck with the leaves among us while we ate. It was too nice to go inside. I even left the doors open while I went from the kitchen to the grill. Is this a precursor to what …

October 17th 2022 Someone said to me yesterday that they hate October. I replied that is the best fall month, hands down. It’s the only month that holds fall colors deep and true and it can still be warm, but also brisk and cool, like fall should be. It’s deep into fall sports season (which means, almost done. That’s good …

October 12th 2022 I went to bed last night…after turning off my mid-century lamp. Right behind the lamp is a vintage style photo of our family a couple summers ago..in the park on Labor Day weekend. ( A tinplate) I looked at Mark in the photo and then looked at other photos and a paintings I have of him….and then …
