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!

It amazes me how a little sunlight truly can brighten the day.

Yes, I thought one had bit the dust, but she was playing with both of them the other day.
Thank you Nan.
Thank you CJ. They do make them! This is the adult pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nutkin-4
Yes, the pockets aren't exactly handwarmers, but they do for storing tiny treasures.

December has come in bleak and dreary; warm sunlight and blue skies were nowhere to be seen. Last night a wet snow fell, ending with a bit of rain, and so this morning the branches were covered with water droplets. The sun graced us with her presence and the world... Continue reading

My latest knitting project is a Puddle Duck tunic for the little babe. After knitting my version of the Annabel Cardigan for myself, I had two and a smidge skeins left of the undyed Osprey from Quince & Co. As soon as I saw this pattern, I knew it was... Continue reading

Every day I walk the two slow dogs up our street. We used to make it the whole way around the big block, but that became too much for old man Chip. Then we would turn around at the end of the first street, but he was dragging through that,... Continue reading

Yes, and I know that my super memory babe will remember them.

Even though the woods look barren and brown, there is always something interesting to see!

Today I am thankful for... ~a quiet Sunday morning run, followed by a mug of homemade hot chocolate. The little babe unselfishly suggested that her father make some for me as a surprise. She has to learn to wipe her upper lip if she wants to keep hot chocolate secrets.... Continue reading

I was able to read it CJ - thanks for sharing it. You just wish that a fraction of the people who read an article like that actually think about it and make a change in their consumption habits.

Thanks for the positive energy CJ. I'm coming out of the doldrums, though a road trip would still be nice. Good food always helps too!

I wondered if the neon color had something to do with the pressure treated wood it was growing on... (but I've seen other bright lichen before.)

Thank you for the kind words Gillian. I'm not a fan of reading about the woes in people's lives either, but sometimes I worry that pictures of leaves and trees gets boring!

I wasn't too thrilled to see the bear scat, but had to act excited for the little babe's sake. It was perhaps that and the dark clouds that encouraged me to walk faster!

"Three" or "third time's the charm" is the theme for this blog post. My latest knitting project is the third version of the Annabel cardigan that I have knitted. (Version 1 and 2 here.) This is the third pattern that I attempted with this yarn, the first project I frogged... Continue reading

Saturday morning was sunny and warm. I picked a small bouquet of bright yellow calendula flowers from the garden; they were still blooming and new seedlings were emerging from the seeds dropped by their summer predecessors. I was still picking raspberries that somehow were evading the frosts at night, then... Continue reading

I wish I had something more exciting to show you than a log full of neon red lichen, but that's all I've got for today. I thought that was a smidge more exciting than fungus on a log, though I do really like the light in this photo. And the... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~a moment of calm in a weekend of stress. I had anticipated a fair and frosty field walk, but by the time we got there it was only frosty in a couple of patches that had not been touched by the sun. No matter, the... Continue reading
