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!

I took the picture Nan. I was outside wandering around in the yard with the camera and just happened to see her when I was coming inside. I managed to take this one good one before she noticed and changed her position.

I think she's been in a growth spurt - pants that we bought in early fall are a bit tight already.

Yes, she does have my pug nose!

And especially on a cold day it would have felt nice.

She is wearing my hoodie and I think it makes her look older!

I totally agree Tracey.

Thanks CJ. Since I have the chickens and ducks, I'm now dreaming about goats and sheep...

Two chickens don't take a lot of space...

Oh, I wish we had gotten snow like that. Instead we had a very rainy 24 hours.

Sounds wonderful - sunny days on beaches, no matter what the season, are great!

Before this Winter, I never had any desire to knit a shawl. I admired other people's shawls, with their delicate lace patterns knitted with fine yarn and super small needles, but I never felt the urge to make one. I am a cowl kind of girl - just throw it... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... -bright warming sunlight streaming through my kitchen windows. The little babe excitedly tried to catch all of the dust particles floating and glimmering in the light. -a beautiful sunny Sunday hike. The trail was pure ice in spots on the way up, icy mud on...

During the past week in the chicken coop, we have had several inches of soft fluffy snow which turned into hard crusted snow, then dirty slippery ice, and now a squishing oozing chicken and duck poop mud mess. No matter what the conditions, I enter the coop about six times... Continue reading

Those jammies are very cute - if I showed them to my daughter, she would probably declare that she wants a pair and then I would have to remind her that she refuses to wear pajamas to bed, even when it is 46 in our bedroom. Glad to hear that there are other insanely hot blooded kids out there!

Hand and nose prints on the windows and doors. Some people might wipe them off right away, but that isn't the sort of thing that I worry about. We currently have a greasy little babe hand print on the kitchen window, in a location that she only could have reached... Continue reading

Yes, the cold temps just make me knit even faster - warm those fingers up!

Balmy!

We definitely still have cold temps in April, though not normally that cold!
Toggle Commented Jan 27, 2016 on That Kind of Cold at Life With The Crew
I don't know about being determined - it is what it is. (And I'd be miserable without my hot showers!)
Toggle Commented Jan 27, 2016 on That Kind of Cold at Life With The Crew
You are right about it being relative - I realize that people in Canada probably scoff at 10 F!

There are also Bohemian Waxwings here in the US, but I have never seen one of those.
Toggle Commented Jan 27, 2016 on The Death of a Cedar Waxwing at Life With The Crew
We just saw a flock of about 20 heading NE - the wrong direction for this time of year!
Toggle Commented Jan 27, 2016 on The Death of a Cedar Waxwing at Life With The Crew
They are really very striking - seeing a whole noisy flock of them is quite the experience.

The past several days have been filled with simple pleasures... -watching feathered fowl getting their first taste of real snow. Only about four inches, but enough that the ladies and two gentleman needed a path shoveled for them. -flapping feather prints that we discovered a mere foot from the chicken... Continue reading

With my face feeling dry and tight from a morning of cross country skiing and then soaking up the heat from the wood stove, I could use some natural facial treatments. Love that chicken photo!
