Darling Girl

Day 29 It is the beginning of week 5. How are we doing? Everybody still hanging in? We have two days left of “spring break” before we start back up with “school days” on Wednesday. Arden informed us last night that she thinks she should “pull an all-nighter” last night and tonight because she wanted […]

Celebrate Jesus, Celebrate

Day 28 Happy Easter! He is Risen Just as He Said! This year, we all did Easter very differently than we ever have before. We gathered separately, in our homes, around computer screens or TVs.  My family wore pjs and wandered in and out through the service (we are all having a hard time settling […]

Breakfast and Boredom

Day 27 Another weekend. Have I mentioned the weekends are the hardest? Looks like, yes, I did – last weekend. I will reiterate – the weekends are the hardest. The lack of plans gets to me. Not that we had a lot of weekend plans before this, but we always COULD have weekend plans. So, […]

About Death

Day 26 Good Friday. I did not write yesterday. It was the first day of “spring break” and so I took a break as well.  Today is a solemn day in the church calendar. It is the day when we, as Christians, come face to face with the consequences of our sin. It is a […]

Covid19 Playlist

Day 24 Good morning, friends.  I hope you are doing well today!  Today I’m bringing you a little gift I made. I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but the titles to all of the blog entries I’ve posted since starting this Covid19 journal have been the titles to songs.  Everyday, I tried to find […]

I’m Henry VIII, I Am

Day 23 Second verse…same as the first…I’m Henry the 8th, I am, Henry the 8th, I am, I am!  Sorry, this song has been in my head all day.  Along with the idea that I never really enjoyed the movie Groundhog Day because it seemed very depressing – despite the humor of Bill Murray!  I’ve […]

Wish I Didn’t Know Now

Day 22 So it’s Monday. That’s about all I can say about that. Arden and I slept in a bit today.  I just couldn’t make myself get out of bed until 9:30. I woke up initially at 6, but the pillow beckoned and I gave in to the call.  We did our school work for […]

Hosanna

Day 21 Palm Sunday. I didn’t sleep well last night and finally gave up at 5 a.m. I got up and took the dog out, made coffee and sat on the couch. I was full of feelings and nothing I was doing – scrolling through Facebook, flipping t.v. channels, trying to read – was able […]

Shadows and Tall Trees

Day 20 Happy Saturday, friends! Today has been a good day. We all slept in and putzed around for what was left of the morning and early afternoon.  I did some cleaning and laundry while Terry worked outside and Arden played in her room. I took Romeo for a long walk and noticed that this […]

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Day 19 Well, it’s Friday. Everyone have big weekend plans?  Yeah, me either. We are running low on meat and milk and bread, so I guess I’ll need to make a plan to go get some supplies this weekend. Other than that, nothing on the agenda. I was telling someone the other day that weekends […]
