Leavin' on a jet plane....

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's a beautiful sky out there today and not too cold either. Hoping this year does not become one of constant repairs. Last week it was the car getting hit, this week it was my watch stopping. Here's hoping the repairs don't take too long as my neck feels rather naked without it.  We are tired this morning. As some of you may have guessed from the title, today is travel day. Amanda is taking off back to school. Four am is early to be awake. Serra and I are back in the Fort hoping the day goes smoothly for travel and getting back to campus tomorrow. Hopefully someday the kid will have a "normal" college...

Routine returns, with a couple of bumps

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Mother Nature has finally decided to grace us with a bit of winter in my little corner of the Fort. Two storms the last couple of weeks have dropped about a foot of snow. On first glance outside the sky looks grey and bleak. Then I look to the east and there is a brilliant stretch of orange from the rising sun. Even though our culture only recognizes rebirth at the turning of the year if you stop to take a moment and look, you can see it every day. What did we do this week? It was a return to routine with the occasional jolts along the way. Daddy headed back over to the...

Hello 2022!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Winter decided to arrive all at once in my little corner of the Fort just before the end of the old year. We have been graced with six inches of snow and below zero temperatures. The cold made it very hard to get out of a cozy bed today! What have we been up to during Limbo week? The time between Christmas and New Year's is always an odd one. You're done with the buildup to the holidays but there's not really anything that can be done until the beginning of January. I totally understand why people take it completely off and why some companies simply close up for the week. My problem is that...

The last Sunday of the year

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The sun is shining brightly in my corner of the Fort. No snow or weather of any kind for that matter graced us for the holiday. Even though it's not cold a pot of chili is bubbling as Amanda has missed home cooking. What did we do this week? Serra has been enjoying the time off with sleep, Animal Crossing on the Switch and time with friends. She has also enjoyed invading Amanda's personal space.  Another round of hair dye has taken her from a great purple to black which does disguise its growth better than the blonde a few months ago did. Amanda finished her last final Monday morning and packed up for the...

The Sun

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It is dark, early and cold in my little corner of the Fort. Waking up at 4 am and being unable to go back to sleep is not how I like to spend Sunday mornings. Simply one of those things that is out of my control, so I try not to fight it too much and enjoy the extra awake hours. One good thing about being up early most days are sights like this. What did we do this week? Serra finished up classes Thursday and has already been enjoying sleeping in and having more time for Animal Crossing. She has also been helping me get the house ready to host Eve this week. Last night we got to...
