In today's instagram shot, you'll see Mama, Peanut's mother, rolling around in the dirt while I was trying to plant peas! Nellie is there, too, so curious about what I was doing and wanting to "help" dig. I tried to explain that only I can dig in the garden. Not sure she understood...

Good to know I'm on the right track with the Walls of Water! Great idea to use them on cukes and squash, too!

My mom told me to read Dick Raymond's advice about growing tomatoes in his The Joy of Gardening book. I remember her studying this book when I was a girl. I'm finding my copy today. Here's hoping you and I have better tomato luck this year!

So glad to have you along over here! I've also found pots of tea to be just the thing for a mental re-adjust :)

Photo: Andrew Montgomery Spring is here! The leaves are opening, the wild hawthorn is in bloom (if all goes as planned, you'll see some of these white-puffed branches come Friday) the lilac buds are still tight, but promising, and the... Continue reading

The stent was removed last Monday, which was wonderful. Despite feeling less energy than normal (therefore naps!), I'm doing pretty well.

I think that's why I had a dislike for lists as well - they're never done! But the Finished List shows otherwise, and that feels so good! I so respect you as single mom. Wow, wow, wow.

When you've been out of town for more than a week, and when your days before that didn't go quite as you'd planned, it's safe to say that things will be piled up and vying for your attention when you... Continue reading

Pillows are a great way to bring in bursts of color! I love that the covers can be easily & inexpensively changed when the moods strikes as well. I found some vintage fabric at the market that I'm going to be using to make new pillow covers for our house. Can't wait!

It is such a curving trail when we must constantly negotiate true needs vs wants and how those needs will be filled. Thank you for your kind words

Hello, loves. I've arrived home after what feels like weeks away. Hugging boys, settling in, washing laundry, opening mail - these are the things of coming home. My first moring back involved two slowly-sipped cups of tea, my journal, and... Continue reading
