We ate a picnic lunch at a rest stop....with a lively orchard as a convenient bonus backdrop. The sun is warm, the grass is green and the birds are chirping. I am even glad to see the ants marching along... Continue reading

{this moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave... Continue reading

On a recent Saturday, my girls were sent to their room to begin spring cleaning. Did several hours of busy silence mixed with some girlish giggling behind a closed door lead to a clean room? Well....kind of. It did however,... Continue reading

Today, let's not dwell on the sub-freezing temperatures and the little snow/ice storm that decided to pass through. Quite uninvited might I add....March storms are such party crashers! Let's instead think about what lies just ahead. We are so close... Continue reading

Returning now, on the train, from a refreshing weekend in NYC. Although I truly love living in the great woods of New Hampshire, sometimes the bright lights and sounds of the city and the masses of people are strangely soothing.... Continue reading

On a train and watching beautiful, snowy New England pass me by....a perfect way to spend a sunny (almost Spring) day. NYC bound today! Continue reading

Such a lovely post. I think most of us New England mamas are in the same boat right now....in great search of keeping the peace on this last stretch of winter! Funny, we have many of the very same activities going on right now....a five-year old boy carving an arrow as we speak, and a potholder-in-progress on the very same loom that is in your home. Also, some big sisters working on 4-H projects and a two-year girl undressing every doll in the house. Yes, we are busy here, too, but so very ready for Spring!

Purpose: A Homeschool Science Fair Hypothesis: We're too busy to participate! Truth be told, my stomach developed a small pit when my girls informed me that they would be entering an exhibit in our area homeschool science fair. Gulp. I... Continue reading

That is a beautiful playmat, Karen. I love the sweet embroidery detail. Yes, Spring is indeed coming! We had a lovely warm-up today in NH, only to get pelted with another round of snow tonight. Ay.
