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!

Today I am thankful for... ~beaver sightings. We visit this place every couple of weeks and this past weekend we discovered recent signs of beaver activity, something I had never seen before. I was very excited! It will be interesting to watch what happens to the stream and it is... Continue reading

We did have one clear night last week when we could see the moon - we've been living in a world of clouds and mist every since.
I was surprised at how much I love this golden yellow color!
The sunshine seems to have disappeared from our place in the world. I tell the little babe that Mrs. Sun is hibernating.
Living a rich and full life is definitely not all about the money.
Thanks for sharing Johanna. It is nice to hear from another Mom who feels the same way.
I'll raise my knitting needles in a toast - three cheers for knitting!
Dress-up is one of her favorite things to do.
She already does. I said she needs to know her right and left, which she has just learned.

This past week's project was another stash buster - 2 1/2 skeins of Quince & Co Chickadee in Carrie's Yellow, that I originally bought for my Petal capelet. I started off with the intention of making a Lola Shawl, but then just wasn't feeling the lace pattern. I thought with... Continue reading

Lola does look very sweet and pretty, but she is the worst mannered dog in our 5 dog crew!

Thank you for sharing Nan. Glad you have the puppy to brighten up the Winter!

Thank you. I have to appreciate the sun while we have it here.

At the moment, it feels a bit like early Spring here. Blah. I am refusing to look at seed catalogs in January.

I wish I could trade weather with you! 20 and sunny sounds great. I can't take the dreary warm and wet days.

Today I am thankful for... ~the luxurious lifestyle of a stay-at-home mom. I am not rich by monetary standards, but my husband works hard (and we make purchasing and lifestyle choices) that make my days with the little babe possible, which is so much more important than extra spending money....

Tuesday morning - 1" of fluffy white snow and 19 F, perfect for bundling the little babe and pulling her behind me on the sled in the woods. Dog escort - Lola. Quiet moments were enjoyed. A much needed dose of fresh air. Wednesday morning - 1" of ice encrusted... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~a senior dog who acts likes a pup again on cold snowy days. Lola turned 11 years old on New Year's Day, but has been joining the little babe and I on long cold wood's walks. ~requests for hot chocolate from the little babe. Because... Continue reading

My hands are itching to knit myself a big wooly fringed shawl, but I thought that I should first use up some of the yarn in my stash. I have a bunch of small balls of yarn, leftovers from previous projects. For myself, I intended to make a cowl out... Continue reading

Thanks - I'm thinking it will be a mood lifter in early Spring with a t-shirt.

Thank you Nan. But for the amount of time that it takes to knit and the cost of good quality yarn, I would have to charge more than most people would be willing to pay. Plus, if I knew I was doing it for someone else, I would not enjoy it so much.

Thank you Lauren. Unfortunately, with the amount of dog and cat hair that gets woven into everything I knit, most people might not be too happy! But I really appreciate the compliment (especially from a non-family member!) ;)

Yes, I feel like I spend half of my day at the kitchen sink and I am always pushing up my sleeves. If I wear a full sweater, the cuffs would get ruined.
