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!

Thanks BG. I just have to remind myself that I am only dealing with someone who is not even three years old yet.

I need to learn the relaxing thing NOW. (At least I know it!)

The to-do list is a biggie for me. I remind myself on a daily basis that I don't actually HAVE to do all of the things that I think I do, so I should sit down and play more.

And the "simple things" can be such great finds!

Yep, he is a great guy!

Thanks for sharing this recipe Tracey. I made three pans of it this week, which I cooked down a bit after blitzing everything, and it made a fantastic tomato soup!

Glad that you have an extra set of hands to help you out Christina. No fresh local tomatoes? That is a bummer. They are such a rite of Summer here.

Oh Gillian, I am so envious of your Aga! In my country dream kitchen, I will definitely have one. (In a fun color!)

Yes! Or in this case, my husband's hard work!

What an awesome happy and healthy looking homestead! I just read a blog post about not having too many animals - or the fact that some people think there IS such a thing as too many animals. With 10 furry ones in our house and 6 feathered outside, I still want more! Though I want the barnyard variety now.

Can you see it? She sees it. Mom, what is it? Make it stay still. I want it. Got it. What did she get? Just a leaf? A simple dried brown leaf hanging from a strand of spider silk. Nothing special. Or is it? Something magical. Spiraling, blowing in the... Continue reading

I was lucky to find some elderberries at a local park, so I'll be making cough syrup for the first time this year. I am also trying peppermint oil (for in soap), lemon balm vinegar (for cleaning spray), and peppermint extract (for yummy cakes and icing). The mason jars don't look too interesting now, but hopefully in a month I'll have some good stuff!

Nice post Tricia. Great photos - you definitely get the Mom of the Week Award for letting them build their own fire AND providing food for them to cook on it! I think many parents forget that one of the main goals of parenting (if not the most important one) is to ensure that our children are happy. You do only get to be a kid once. I think sometimes parents encourage their children to be involved in so many activities because it keeps the kids busy - aka, out of their parents hair.

Today I am thankful for... abundance. A very large quantity of something. A very large quantity of tomatoes. Not tomatoes that we grew ourselves, but still they are local chemical free tomatoes. Our several tomato plants are providing us with enough for dinner every night, but not enough for "putting... Continue reading

I love when I catch myself about to say a word in the same "wrong" way as my toddler. She can't say the "s" in the beginning of words like spider or spot. We have a lot of "piders" in our house and that has become the way that I think of them too.

I had an ice cream date with the little babe on Friday morning after buying some kale seedlings to restock the garden. Actually it was her treat/bribe for not running pell-mell through the store to get a cup of water from the water cooler. She chose Oreo Cookie. Luckily for... Continue reading

Our blackberries follow the raspberries here too Christina, but the blackberries have just finished.

She'd love to come visit you at the beach Tracey - she is a water babe!

Glad to know others are having wonderful fun filled days too. ;)
Toggle Commented 6 days ago on My Angelic Jekyll at Life With The Crew
Yep, she'll be three in October, so must be the age.

I'm glad she circles the globe - maybe we're having our good moments when she is over visiting your kids!
Toggle Commented 6 days ago on My Angelic Jekyll at Life With The Crew
She'd love to come visit - until she realizes that I'm not there for naptime!

Thanks for sharing Liv - we all have so much more to be thankful for than what we normally realize.
We see a fair amount of toads, but this was the first frog - the sticky toe pads were pretty cool.
