Up & Down & Up & Down & Up Again

The past two weeks have been full. We had a fumigator come to tent our house and kill termites. This required us to move our food (at a minimum) and a lot of other stuff (because I am so sensitive to chemical irritants) out of the house. Then we moved back in a few days later.

Instead of a continuous memory of all the things we saw, I have a few snapshots in my head. One of […]

But life doesn’t always work out as planned. My favorite aunt passed away while my husband and I were camping, so we took a detour, by plane, to NYC and went to the […]
