We are in Wyoming, Georgia. Snow in September isn't exactly normal here, but we know that white surprises can happen at any time.

We are in northern Wyoming. Yes, snow can come early in the north, can't it? Always glad when the early dumps don't stay

Thanks, April! Mostly, it's just diving in and giving things a try. There are lots of mess-ups and start-overs, too. It's how I learn.

Isn't it though? Relaxing and meditative indeed

Glad you're power is back on! We so depend on it, don't we? And cross-stitch and embroidery? Beautiful art forms. I once heard a woman describe embroidering as coloring slowly. Love that.

Oh, Ravelry! I try to limit my time over there...

Yes!

We're all in this together, Lisa!

Oh, I can totally relate to this visual, Liesl! I rarely write a list...maybe for that very reason :0

I'm learning that my 'want' list rolls over quite nicely from one season to the next. ;) Glad to hear I've go company!

tea from the spearmint patch The pole beans never did have anything to climb. The simple cedar trellises I built still lean against the shed, far from the garden, in need of just twenty minutes to be complete. In the... Continue reading

I'm pining for and dreaming of one as well! My dad built my mom a couple of them when I was growing up, and I have such memories of planting & transplanting seedlings inside. She always had pea gravel as flooring & would spray it down with water to increase the humidity inside. The slatted workbenches were so wonderful, too. When we lived in Alaska, a friend of my who was a master gardener built her own redwood & glass kit greenhouse. It was lovely, and had a heater that was regulated by a thermostat inside her house. She would start her seeds in Feb under lights in the house. By mid March, she would begin heating the greenhouse & transplant her seedlings and keep them there. By April (when there was still deep snow outside) she was harvesting cucumbers hanging from pots hung from the ridge beam, and lettuces in a bed dug into the floor of the greenhouse! We had so much fun planting together in there! Someday, I will have my own...until then, maybe cold frames? Can't wait to see what yours will be!

Yes! You should learn! Maybe start with something very easy like a dish cloth?

Ha! Love that idea! I won't tell the boys - they would try it

Yes, I've been a northern girl all my life, and so know this was just a (very) early winter tease! Our temps will be in the 80's next week. Thanks for the slipper love

Sometime in late spring, I began a knitting project with some thrifted wool. The beautiful golden yellow caught my eye, and I wondered if it was okay to take the unfinished sweater that someone had worked so hard on, tear... Continue reading

The rain plinks the roof in a lazy, half-alseep rhythm. I think of the day ahead and the many things that are waiting to fill it. Not one of them could be described as lazy or half-asleep. I contemplate, plan,... Continue reading

So, way back when (it seems), after our little house was mostly complete, I photographed the interior and published it on the blog. Things sort of went crazy after that May day, after all of you saw those photos. You... Continue reading

Hello loves! Can I just sit here in the quiet darkness of early morning and chat with you awhile? I've propped myself up in bed with tons of pillows, and the blankets and wool are keeping me toasty in spite... Continue reading

I missed hearing from you! But so know the fullness of life, especially in summer, it seems. Thank you for being so real about the transitions of kids flying off to the next phase of their lives. The way you describe it is so beautiful and raw and real. Our oldest is a Sophomore, so we are holding every moment as sacred, because we, too, will be sobbing in his empty room very soon.

The River Book is what I called the open 'pages' of time and play and learning along the riverbank that day.

Hi Deni! Yes, I did love the Little House books when I was young (and still do), but no, I wasn't inspired by the books to choose the name Nellie. I'd heard the name a few years ago, given to a dog, and just loved it.
