The stone has been rolled away and the tomb is empty! Alleluia! For we Christians that means Jesus was who He said He was and had finished what He was sent to do on earth. Alleluia! Our Redeemer lives! He has regained possession of His created in exchange for His death.  He has made amends….

Early on in March an order was issued that all restaurants, fast food and dine-in, coffee and sandwich shops, even wineries and breweries had to close unless they could offer take-out or delivery. These were considered essential services. Yep, alcohol is considered a COVID-19 essential. No dine-in or propping up the bar because of that…

Trying to praise and worship the Lord at home is difficult. Traditional church used to make it so easy for me! I’d trot off to mass on Sundays and Holy Days and all at once I’d be in another place that smelled faintly of incense; A Sacred, Holy Space. Now, with the churches closed down…

I suppose we have a burn each year as the wood and vines pile up and we can no longer ignore them… there’s only so many wild-life habitats we can create! When the social-distancing became a thing and we had to stay at home because everywhere was closing and groups larger than ten were being…

I think this rainy weather must be irritating the young bulls as much as it is us! They’re bellowing and banging heads together, Displaying. Pawing the ground, heads down, snorting, ready to charge. Hanging out in grumbly groups; Generally disgruntled. Except for these two youngsters, just getting away from the crowd and staying still, next…

It’s been wet since February!  I’m sure there have only been a handful of days when the sun’s either come out or it’s been cloudy, dry and windy. Along with the corona virus the weather seems to have settled a huge, depressing cloud over everything…and I feel like Andy Capp mooching along the street, hands…

As a child I’d spend weeks with my paternal grandmother in her house in Buckinghamshire. Booker was in the country where the air was clean and smelled of lilac and cut hay, quite a change from the smoky, grimy air-quality of London. We’d go for walks every day after she’d finished her chores and I…

Callie has her own chair. Hubs and I have made a pad for it with a down jacket and faux sheepskin to keep her warm during winter nights when she can’t get all cosied up on our bed because of the boys! When we have company we remove her feather bedding and invite our guests…

Nine months ago our 48″ stove, super functional with two ovens, started to play up. Granted it was 20 years old but it looked stalwart and strong and we didn’t want to scrap the old boy! Our home warranty, American Homeshield, replaced countless parts to get the ovens working; the service repairman was patient and…

My Russian blue, named Shadow, has an endearing habit which I know I should discourage but he is so adorable I just can’t. When I’m eating dinner he hops up next to me on the bench and gently pats my arm, “Here I am!” he seems to say, “Mind if I join you?” I ignore…
