    Moving back to Indiana

    I'm planning on going back to Indiana sometime between March 1 and April 1 and renting an apartment until I save up enough money to tear down my house and garage and put a modular home on my property. It's going to take me at least a year to save up enough money. But, at least I don't need to...

    Anybody got diabetic recipes?

    I did a Google search and basically got a bunch of vegetarian/vegan recipes. I'd like some that include meat. I am a bit of a picky eater. So, nothing weird, please. Love you all. Nori

    Responsibility for others losing their faith

    I just finished reading most of Anna's thread "Conversation with Knight..." Can't remember the whole title right now. But, that thread made me think about when my daughter, at age twenty-on, told me that she was no longer a Christian because of the hypocrisy of Christians. At the time, she...

    First ice storm of 2018

    My power went out between 1 am and 3 am on Wednesday night. It finally came back this morning at 9 am. Sharing some photos of my street/road from yesterday. I didn't go anywhere until after the ice was cleared off the road. But, with no electricity, I couldn't cook. So, my daughter and I...

    As of next Monday...

    I will have my house back. My nephew is moving out this weekend. I'm a little worried about him getting back and forth to work since he's moving up by Indianapolis. But, he's going to be moving in with a co-worker and they'll be carpooling.

    Merry Christmas, TOLers!

    Just wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas. Going to put my ham in the oven in about another two hours.

    Don't know how many of you remember Crow...

    She used to be a moderator on TOL, years ago. I just heard tonight that she passed away, yesterday or the day before, of congestive heart failure. I don't know if she had any family. But, looking at her Facebook page, I see that she had a lot of friends.

    My garden

    I can honestly say that I have a successful garden, this year! After last year's failure, I had almost decided not to plant one this year. I planted six different tomatoes, 2 Big Boy, 2 Early Girl, and 2 Roma, corn, watermelon, cucumbers, okra, and eggplant. Two weeks ago, my tomatoes were...

    Garden talk

    So far, I've got tomatoes, artichokes, cucumbers, squash, and kidney beans started. I also have catnip and lilacs potted and growing until I can put them outside. Today, I bought two hanging pots, ten strawberry roots, and a rectangular pot for garlic. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to hit the...

    Got scared half to death today...

    I was on the way home from dropping my daughter off at home when a chicken flew up in front of my car from right to left and hit my windshield. It was raining pretty hard. So, not only did I have my wipers on but I didn't see the chickens on the side of the road. Because my wipers were on, my...

    I'm taking a weather spotter course...

    A friend of mine suggested I take it because I've always been interested in weather and I live in a rural area. If I become a certified spotter, I will be reporting to NOAA and the county sheriff when we have bad weather (t-storms, tornadoes, flash floods, and winter weather). This sounds...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I hope you all have a good one. This is my first one alone. My daughter and my nephew have both moved into their own places. So, I'm not doing the major feast, this year.

    My own journey as a Christian

    As most of you know, I've been with TOL since before my husband passed away in January of 1999. Before Steve died, I considered myself strong in my faith. I wasn't as strong as I thought. I blamed God for Steve dying. He was a 39 year old man who died instantly from a massive stroke. He was...

    Got some great news from my daughter!

    About a week ago, my daughter asked me if she could move in with me on October 1 for about a month (she offered to pay me rent) because her lease expired and she was going to try to get an apartment with my nephew. Then, two days ago, she told me that she wasn't going to move in with my nephew...
