Ah, those inner demons, they are downright tough at times. Chin up, friend. Here's to you getting the upper hand.

The rain came, and with it an exhale, a reprieve from the minutes of full in a series of blue summer days; a soaking pause where we watched from inside, listening to raindrops sing against the silver roof. I drew... Continue reading

Hi Susan! Since this post was written in January, I honestly can't recall the rabbit trail that lead me to the Atlanta guest house photos. When I post any photos other than my own on the blog, I try to link to the source of the work (i.e. who the designer/architect/builder is) so their work, and the photographer's work can be credited, as I did here. Off the top of my head, I'm not familiar with the house from DesignChic.com - maybe this house was featured there too?

It draws me like an invisible current, the morning sun that drifts lightly over the hushed and darkened, slowly warming earth awake. It pulls me outside, where the birds are caught in a chorus, where the kitties yawn and stretch,... Continue reading

Great idea!

A girl, her dog, summer sun, early morning, Wyoming. Our morning run. She knows where all the water is for splashing; I know where all the wildflowers are. We both know this is the favorite part of our day. And?... Continue reading

I've never tried growing lemongrass...

Do!

Yes, this HAS been a fun series, I must say, because of all the interaction!

This is wonderful! Would love to see your herb garden!

This sounds incredibly good. We lived in Alaska for 10 years and lived on salmon...oh how I miss it on our table every week!

My guess is either different varieties, or second year?? Anybody out there know?

No trick! Some herbs are perennials, or biennials. I literally just left my herb garden alone last fall - didn't pull anything, just to see what would come back in the spring. Fun!

I'll file this idea away for a possible future post. Thanks for asking!

Yes, the brand of cookware I use is All Clad. They are investment pieces, for sure, but I've had some of mine for 16 years and they still look as good as new (I highly recommend Bar Keeper's Friend to clean them with - no scratching & the polish finish remains beautiful). Joan at For The Love of A House wrote a great post about All Clad cookware here:http://fortheloveofahouse.blogspot.com/2012/03/random-musings.html

Love the purple flowers on my sage right now!

Hmm, I've never tried mint in my red sauce - just the usual basil, oregano, parsley

Why, again, did it take us three years (three years, for Pete's sake!) to hang this hammock in this spot? We're wondering. Have you ever had a slap-your-forehead moment over a small, yet wonderful thing, and wonder for the life... Continue reading

Oh, THANK YOU for the clothes pin source! Ordered two sets - just in time to save me from the dreaded China-made purchase (was holding out as long as I could!)

The one I'm trying to work out a solution for right now is less use of throw-away plastic -- ziplock bags, to be exact. I can almost get rid of them, then it seems we 'need' them for something? I'm wanting to try BeesWrap, and have recently looked at air-tight bento boxes for boy lunches to go. I've read that bread actually keeps better in a linen bag than it does in a plastic one, so that's on my radar as well. Maybe a summer sewing project...
