Same here. Although today we saw the sun at least! I am actively keeping thoughts of winter out of my head...last year was a hard one, even for someone like me who loves winter. Have a great weekend. xo

Scenes like these make this Mama pause. And give thought to all that exists outside of my realm. About all that goes on above and beyond my ability to juggle morning routines, lunchmaking and the neverending pile of laundry. The magic of a birds nest. Spent after a season of... Continue reading

As the years roll on by, I put so much faith in that very fact! Seasonal shifts trigger so many different and wonderful memories of days spent. Thanks for stopping by Amy. Hope Autumn is treating you well. xo

There is something about the shifting of days in this season. My thoughts and my being move in time with those of the natural world around me. I am preparing my home both inside and out for colder times. I am settling myself into a routine for the long and... Continue reading

Welcome back. I am glad you are here. And wow...you had those needles going this summer! And yes...any day now they will be called into use. Don't let these last warm days of Autumn fool you. :-)

There was a whole lot of stuff jammed into this weekend past. And for the first time in a long while it felt like we achieved a balance....in and out....chore and fun. Visits with friends and family all with an underlying sense of just how lucky we are. A renewed... Continue reading

In a perfect world I would always look at the cup as half-full. I would wake up every morning with joy in my heart. While these sentiments are always present in my thoughts, the execution can sometimes leave a little bit to be desired. And the excuses for these lapses... Continue reading

The days of cozy indoor pursuits are closing in. The bookshelves are ready. The wool is cupboard stocked. Paints and crayons and sketchbooks join the ranks of everyday routine once again. To my mind, there is no season like this one for these kinds of pursuits. The inspiration is everywhere.... Continue reading

LittleWool has entered it's legwarmers and felted acorns season. Also of note, it is the season of me - the brain, heart and hands behind this endeavor. I love this time of year. Continue reading

Of this I was reminded. A period of respite from all that consumes our everyday. Just feet on a path and a mind left to wander or wonder. Away from time. An activity that is sorely lacking in our lives now that school takes place outside of this forest realm.... Continue reading

Thanks Mama. I appreciate your kind wishes...I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel finally. Keeping my fingers crossed that it decides to stick around awhile. HOpe you are well. I have missed this space and reading of your adventures. I am glad to be back. xo

Thanks! She is quite happy with her decision...it hasn't been too much trouble to get her out of bed early in the morning. :-) It threw me for a loop that's for sure. I feel myself returning however. xo

So. September is quickly becoming a month of the past. Summer has now officially been and gone. And here I sit, stumbling to find the words to describe what is going on in both my brain and my world. Although the signs were there, it was difficult for me to... Continue reading

There is no doubt that I will miss many aspects of town...not the least of which is running into the wonderful people that live here. This dream has been a long time coming for us. The acting on it came from a place of fear that if not now, we never would. Thanks for your kind words. They mean a lot to me. See around town!

That's the official name given to this move. Created by my littlest one. Technically yes, she is my littlest. However, the reality is hitting me hard that in actuality, she is 8. Her years of caution and contemplation have served her well as she becomes the confident and thoughtful girl... Continue reading

Thanks Erin. Time to pick your brain about bees and chickens! Hope you had a super long weekend.

Such a crazy amount of land! I have walked it a few times now and still can't wrap my head around it all. Hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend. xo

We have found our spot. All 150 acres of it....and compared to our 0.02 acres that we occupy right now, it feels like we may as well own all of planet Earth. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around this, despite having wanted it for what feels like... Continue reading

Hi Amy. We had a great holiday for sure. And it is true there was no adjusting to life upon returning from a travel holiday..it was all taken care of. I hope your summer has been good. It feels like so long since I've been in this space. I am glad to be back.

A duck egg on a manure pile - that sounds like something you would come across at Upper Canada Village. Precisely what I love about it...it gives an actual picture of what would/could happen. That trip amazes me each time I go. I absolutely love it.
