August, Already!

By: JanesVacation, 1:25 PM GMT on August 01, 2015

Many thanks to Sandi and Weatherwise for the images to begin my new August blog. They are both such creative and talented individuals. They are providing me the inspiration to begin August. The full moon has been stunning these past few nights with our clear skies.

I will be back to school by the end of August and our son will turn 28 years old. It is my 17th year of teaching on a full time basis. I taught part time for over 10. It makes me feel "younger...

Yes, it is July and summer is here! We had a houseful last night as old friends and family gathered to see each other before everyone goes in their separate directions once again. Montreal, Honolulu, Upper Michigan, etc...such a group of travelers. All have jobs that take them away. I'm excited to see and hear the things they are doing and the adventures they are having, but also sad for the old days when we saw them more often and could be a bigger part of their li...

June 1 is here and I am ready for summer! I'm going to post a picture of my Mom's peony bushes that was taken awhile back. She told me they aren't blooming quite yet this year. It is a sight worth waiting for each June!

Yesterday I drove over to visit my Mom and Dad to celebrate an early Father's Day. Here are a few pictures I took of the peony bushes. My Dad lovingly cares for them because they are cuts from my Mom's aunt.

May 16, 2015. It's not quite the official beginning of summer yet, but it sure seemed like it! The evening was complete with warm weather and swimmers - yeah, not warm enough for swimming but these boys were about 16 years old and adventurous.

It's been a hectic beginning here to the month of May. We started with a 4.1 earthquake centered about 65 miles from here on Saturday. Our son was here visiting and said "It's an earthquake?" I didn't th...

April Showers

By: JanesVacation, 12:24 PM GMT on March 31, 2015

April begins tomorrow and the weather is beginning to show improvement. My crocus are in bloom, but they are very late and rather small due to lack of rain. Signs of April showers are in our extended forecast.

Spring break begins on Good Friday. I'm anxious to spend the week with my daughter. She works from home, so it will be nice to enjoy her company even when she is working. I will likely have some down time to check the weather blogs and s...
