Well folks, here we are. On the doorstep of Winter. And in the home stretch to Holiday time. It is at this time I would like to sign off for a little bit. But, before I do I would like to wish you all the merriest of days. I look... Continue reading

Words cannot express how much I love this King Winter. He has been part of our Winter nature table for many years now...I am always glad to see him. And that my friend is one of the beauties of winter...being able to watch it from indoors if one chooses. :-) Wishing you a happy weekend ahead.

Thank you for this comment. I like the "keepers of the undercurrent" part! It says it all so well. I am glad you found me too. I appreciate your kind words. Happy weekend ahead.

With the snow falling steadily outside, I am patting myself on the back for having the foresight to plan for such an occurance. I am inside. I am putting my own spin on a delicious, pretty much perfect meat pie found in Ashley English's book A Year of Pies. I... Continue reading

The shopping world shenanigans of last Friday left me feeling unsteady - adrift in thoughts filled with dismay and quickly landing on the shores of disgust. This is not a state of mind I readily dwell in. It takes a lot to bring me there and I usually kick and... Continue reading

Totally worth it! You won't regret taking that action. Happy evening to you.

When questions between the head and the heart arise it is my heart that proves victorious. Sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes not. Always, it just is. Continue reading

If nothing else comes of this, at least we all know we aren't alone in these sentiments! xo

I fully support the thoughts you expressed here - they were not too long! There needs to be discussion and dissent on this one...that I believe. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. xo

What an awesome thing it would be - if that was a sign. :-)

With December upon us, our family Christmas baking has begun. Three generations standing around the island in our kitchen. A deep breath after the rant of Friday's post. And how simple it can all be. Happy Monday.xo Continue reading

I like to believe that shopping local and avoiding the Black Friday mayhem will become the mainstream - it would be so nice if that were the case. I may have been suffering from one too many emails telling me all about how much money I can save if I buy now. The way it stands right now, it all feels like too much. So, shop Saturday and shop local....that is the focus. Thank you.

(No pretty pictures to distract you from my words today...there is a rant inside me just waiting to be spewed.) Yeah - take what I said last year about this Bleak Friday thing that seems to have taken over the world (here) and ramp it up a notch. How did... Continue reading

Ha! I can't imagine what she must look like today. More beautiful in memory I imagine.

Thank you! We are in that sweet spot where it is cold enough to snow, but really not that cold outside yet. xo

It is such a joyful reminder that kids are still kids. Subject to fits of outdoor play with the addition of snow. And adults too. xo

It's Monday. It is raining. And I am holding onto that weekend-y feeling with both hands. There is much on my plate in the days to come. All good stuff - baking, sewing, planning - the things that keep me in the moment. But I have to admit that there... Continue reading

This was the week of the first snow. And while there are many things I love about the first snow, perhaps my favorite is the sudden appearance of snowmen in yards. At this time in history there is much focus on how much kids aren't doing....mostly involving time spent outdoors.... Continue reading

I know - I spent all of yesterday saying that number out loud...it is so crazy that we are nine years down this road! Miss you Ab. xo

It was a happy day, thank-you. And still is. I am not sure where we would all be without her!
