Please Keep Following Me!

I will still blog here occasionally, but mostly I am blogging at our other web site now as we prepare to move from New Jersey to our cabin in Colorado. It's called "Off the Grid" and you can find it here. We will write about our plans and keep you updated on our eventual move.

So, if you don't see me here, come over to Off the Grid!

Welcome to my Blog!

Hello and welcome! I’ve created this blog site for friends and family, but also for myself. Since our recent move to northern New Jersey, our lives have been opened to many new experiences and I’ve felt the need to write them down. I am not good at keeping diaries, but somehow this seems different than pulling out a little book and scribbling in it. So, I’ll do my “scribbling” with a computer keyboard instead. I hope that you will enjoy reading what I write here and that you will visit often! Please, please feel free to leave comments! I’d love to know that you’ve enjoyed reading a certain article! To leave a comment, just click on “Comments” at the end of each article. If you’re new to this site and wish to read the blog entries in chronological order, click here.

If it’s dark, it must be late and she forgot to feed us!

It’s a dark, dreary afternoon here in NJ. It rained this morning and looks like it’s going to start again soon. It is only 1:30 p.m. but looks more like 8:30 p.m. I love it but the dogs are confused. They think I forgot to feed them. They’ve been dogging my footsteps for about an hour now, waiting and hoping to be fed. Coming from Colorado where it’s sunny 85% of the time they don’t know what a really cloudy day is like. They still have two more hours to wait. I hope they get used to cloudy days soon.

Bear Visit!

Millenia Redecorates

I never know what the morning is going to hold for me. The dogs or the cats somehow manage to think up something to make my early waking hours more challenging. This morning it was Millenia’s turn. At least we think it was Millenia. See photo attached and make your own determination! I came downstairs to find that someone had gotten into the trash in the laundry room. We’ve been painting (so far the living room this weekend) and I had a small amount of paint in a plastic glass that I was using to touch things up with. It was in the trash. This a.m. it was out of the trash, spilled all over the laundry room floor. Tell-tale painted footsteps led from the laundry into the kitchen, onto the throw rugs. Great. Another fun start to my day. Who do you think did it? (P.S. Millenia is wearing “Ivy Lane” by Benjamin Moore Paint)
