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!

After spending two days in Maine, we headed over the border to western New Hampshire for the weekend. We stayed in a great little house with my husband's parents, the same one as last year. It was a perfect weekend. Since it was almost Halloween, there were a lot of... Continue reading

Thanks CJ - I just love the farmhouse and barn where we stay. So many photographic opportunities!
How about river birches Tracey? I believe they are found down South.
They are so amazing Laura! We have several sycamores in our neighborhood here in PA, which aren't quite as beautiful, but I also enjoy watching their bark flake off.
I am joining Chrisy at Living A Good North Coast Life for her "Reconnecting With Nature" series. As we bloggers sit around connected to our computers, it is a great way to force us to step outside and maybe notice something new in the natural world or just appreciate something... Continue reading

Well, sometimes I wish I could ship her to Australia for a visit! :)

Thank you Amanda.
Thank you Tracey. I'll get to work experimenting with some dough and squash!
Very, very cool. And really interesting that the sweater color varies so much from the wool on the actual sheep!

Today I am thankful for... a little getaway. It was really nice to have a break from reality, without fighting dogs, messy cats, and construction mess. Over the weekend we took a trip to New England so that I could run in a half marathon in New Hampshire and so... Continue reading

Oh yeah, I forgot the butter eating too! She can make a meal out of butter, ketchup, mustard and pesto. She is a condiment connoisseur!

Thank you Christina. Hmm, a second round of no saying - and perhaps a teenagers diet to go with it also?

That is face paint actually - her first and the last one that I can remember for myself! She watched me get it done first, then she very bravely sat still while she got her kitty cat. The hardest part was not letting her touch it afterward.

Yes, the diet isn't exactly made up of things I don't eat myself...but I do have a bit more variety.

"Hi" was her only word for months and I got kind of tired of hearing it, but now I am tired of "NO"!

Hmm, so maybe the crayon eating is a sign that she'll be artistic and crafty when she is older...

I have officially entered the land of toddlerhood. -Almost every word the little babe says is, "No". "Do you want your shoes on or off?" - "No." "Did you poop?" - "No." (This is said when it is very obvious to my sense of smell that she has.) "Am I... Continue reading

It is great Chrisy. This nature center does a really great job of educating the community about all aspects of natural history/wild animal information. The fact that they are associated with the local university provides them with a lot of funding that smaller nature center's don't have.
Thank YOU Christina for your comment!
Glad you agree they are totally healthy! :)
Oh, cozy long undies for the little babe - yes please!

For the little babe's birthday I made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I made the recipe again this week, but used mashed sweet potato instead of the pumpkin and they turned out just as good. I did not alter the recipe (except for the sweet potato substitution and I did not... Continue reading

The hot water bottle cover is a great idea! I remember, way back several years ago when I first discovered Etsy, one of the first things that caught my attention was the sweetest felted wool hot water bottle cover, with a little tiny sheep design on it - so sweet and useful!
Thank you. The little snake was trying his hardest to put on a scary show - we only held him for less than a minute and then put him down safely in the leaves.
Thank you Mandy. Yes, I enjoy taking pictures in Autumn more than in Summer. Much more visual interest I think.
