I'm going to be on the lookout for frames at the flea market and yard sales this summer; I'd love to get some of it up on the walls... Julia said yesterday, "It's kind of like I'm an artist!" and I told her of course she is, and art belongs on display, don't you think? xo

I just finished it! It is soaking in a nice cool bath right at this very minute. Now, to finish Julia's dress. (I have a plan B—a bit of fabric to make a skirt that will go nicely with the sweater—just in case...) xo

Mmmm...blueberry muffins... He'll be used to New England weather soon enough, I'd suspect. This has been a strange year, even for a region where it changes so quickly and so vastly. xo

Oh, a piano! We are waiting until we are settled, because it is so difficult to move a big piano, and we are thinking we will be back in New England soon-ish, but I want one so much! Julia & Asher's firstmother plays, and I did as well when I was a child, so it seems rather a necessity for our family. I'm a little jealous that you have one now! xo

This has been a crazy spring, so far, hasn't it? We had snow yesterday & I am hoping that's the last of it. Such lovely flowers you made... xo
Crazy weather we’re having, isn’t it? I’m hoping that was the last of it… xo

I did! I’m so excited. The Woolery says it’s a very good wheel for the price, and the price was right for this beginner… I bought it unfinished, so I’ll have to finish it with Danish oil before I can use it. I’m giddy with anticipation… xo

After a weekend spent outside in the beautiful weather, we spent yesterday afternoon indoors, watching the snow fall. George and I have been joking that between the June weather and the February weather, we're bound to have some April weather sooner or later, and it appears that's what we have... Continue reading

It was so much fun, Karen! I agree - it really is a wonderful idea. And I’m always a little amazed, every time they set out to make something new, how much my children are becoming capable of doing on their own. I’m having to learn to hold myself back from stepping in to help because they really can do so much all by themselves. xo

Thank you so much for organizing this swap, Marcela - we had so much fun!

Next year I need to start more seeds inside. This year we only bought seeds for things that we could reasonably direct-sow; we’ll buy plants from the garden co-op when it comes time for peppers and tomatoes and the like. I want to set up a shelf with proper light to start seeds; my starts always end up so leggy and then I buy plants anyway because I’m certain they won’t do well once I transplant them… What flowers are you planting to use in dyeing? I have a few things in my front garden for dyeing but I am always interested in hearing what other dyers are doing… xo
Would you believe after all the lovely gardening weather last week, it *snowed* here yesterday? I hope the seeds I already planted survive… xo
Oh, Kim - I wish I’d known you hadn’t heard about it. I thought for sure you must be doing it, since you did the other swap. I’ll be sure to let you know next time I hear about one. xo

I’ll be sure to let you know the next time I hear about one; I think I always assume other people hear about these things before I do! xo

I've mentioned that Julia and Asher have been hard at work, these last few weeks, making gifts for their partners in their children's swap. We had a good start, getting going really early and finishing most of our things well in advance. Each of them had just one thing to... Continue reading

This week was a very productive one in the garden. I took the leaf mulch that protected our garlic out of the beds and seeded carrots, lettuce, and scallions between the rows in the front bed; the back bed will be planted with celery and onions between the rows in... Continue reading

Our house was built sometime in the 1890s, so not *too* old (but pretty old for around here). There was concrete in here at some point but it was broken up and in some places it was down to bare dirt. When it rained the cellar was a big mud puddle!

The last few days have been rainy and cold, the perfect weather for getting things done around the house. I've been spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen: a little cleaning, a little organizing, a lot of cooking. I have plans to paint in here over the summer,... Continue reading

Yesterday was glorious: so sunny and warm that Friday's snow (ahem) seemed a distant memory. We've been storing our rain barrels in the cellar for the winter. I'm not sure why George didn't just turn them upside-down once they were emptied in the fall, but I came home one afternoon... Continue reading

Oh, she's here, she's here! Spring is truly, finally, here. Yesterday was nearly 70 degrees, and while the temperatures will be coming back down to earth for the next little while, it was so nice to be outside in the sun, playing with friends and catching up with neighbors. I... Continue reading
