Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

Well thank you Nan.
I don't see birds eating ours, but all of the lower vines are free game for Lola!
Oh, we definitely have the humidity! Berry picking in the backyard is definitely one of the best things to do during the Summer!
Hmm, I've never heard of a tayberry. They aren't grown around here.
The temp was so weird - way too cold for the middle of summer!

I decided to take the plunge and knit an actual sweater with long sleeves for the little babe. Everything I have made to date has been sleeveless vests or short sleeve. I've knitted a couple of patterns that had the option of long sleeves, but by the time I got... Continue reading

This post came a year too late! In years past, we have received garlic scapes in our CSA shipment and never really new what to do with them. Even the chickens didn't eat them! This year we are not doing the CSA (growing our own and supporting farmers markets instead) and so I don't have any garlic scapes to use up! I guess I could buy some...

"Rain, rain, go away, come again another day." That has become the daily chant in our house lately. Come again another day, sometime not too soon. It seems like we have not had a day without rain in WEEKS. Seeing the sun is now cause for excitement. "I see the... Continue reading

This past weekend had two themes: rain and raspberries. Saturday was non-stop rain all day. Not just a little drizzle, but steady, dark sky, cold rain. It was only 62 F in the afternoon, which is very abnormal for the end of June. How are my raspberries supposed to ripen... Continue reading

I've thought about making a pouf for my daughter. She was delighted with one she saw in a magazine and I was not delighted with the high price tag for something made in China. They don't seem the most practical thing, so I haven't attempted one yet.

I am getting better about not feeling bad for an animal when it is another animals meal - everybody has to eat!

Yep, it is!

I have to remember that words make just as much of an impression as actions do!

We don't really ever see stray dogs here, so dog attacks aren't something we ever worry about, but now I'm hyper vigilant on my runs.

I don't think the ducks are too keen about the chickens, but after finding a couple of feathers in the yard the first night, they seem to be leaving each other alone.

Oh Tracey, I am so sorry to hear about your duck. At least it wasn't a traumatic end and he was a pretty lucky duck, because most of them do not get to live to the end of their natural life.

That is an awesome hat - what an intricate pattern. (Way out of my knitting league!!)

Since we live in the suburbs and cannot allow our chickens to wander all over the neighborhood, we have a large chicken yard that is surrounded by wire fencing. The chickens have long since stripped out any plant life except prolific Rose of Sharon, monster catnip that has gone wild,... Continue reading

I discovered Philippa Gregory several years ago and couldn't get enough of her books. They are fantastic reads and totally pull you into the story. The first one I read was The Queen's Fool and really enjoyed it.

While I was on my Saturday morning run several weeks ago, I was bitten by a dog. It was on a route that I have run many times before and I have always heard the dog barking behind a high stockade fence at the end of a cul de sac.... Continue reading

As I was cresting the first hill on my long weekend run, I had my eyes on the ground, thinking about the route, glad that I was out early while the suburbs were still quiet. Suddenly, something caught my eye at the top of the hill. It was a bird... Continue reading
