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 for commenting Christina - glad you're feeling better. Being sick, even something as bland as the common cold, makes life miserable, but puts the importance of good health into perspective.
I think appreciating the small and simple things is important! Thanks for commenting!
I'm still getting used to the evenings of sunlight - means I feel guilty for not being out doing yard work!

Soft evening light and freshly dug worms. Weed bouquets and wellies. ("Mom, the first wildflowers of the season!") Dirt under the fingernails (and between the toes). And more worms. Rain drops and budding branches. SPRING! Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~small signs of Spring. (The little babe was amazed that the daffodil blooms opened within a day of bringing them inside.) ~tissues. Or rather, just plain old toilet paper. I've been dealing with a bad head cold since last week and I am so glad... Continue reading

Well, a lot of times I do wear a hat inside, but it isn't pointy and red! :) (And actually, most years the 20th IS the first day of Spring.)

A bit of green... A bit of sparkle... A bit of exploration... A good start to Spring. And we also had the first tick sighting. The season has begun. Continue reading

Last night I was awakened by a sound that once I realized what it was, made me smile as I lay in the dark. I strained to hear it over the little babe's breathing next to my head. After several minutes, I wanted to see if I could hear it... Continue reading

With my being a stay-at-home Mom and a husband who is in the beginning of building up a new business, this magazine would be considered a luxury purchase. My daughter would really love a subscription.

Snow. More than a couple of inches. I don't know how much exactly because I don't listen to the weather reports and I don't really care. It is more than enough for skiing and it required me to dig a path through the yard for the Corgis. The best snowfall... Continue reading

I am not a fan of random picture posts. I feel like there in no point in sharing a post if I can't put together something coherent. But I do have an excuse. The little babe (who is not that little any more - 4 1/2 years), now only naps... Continue reading

~Trying to capture the morning light, which is beginning to look and feel like Spring. ~Hanging out with the little babe, who has decided to revive the monkey hat style. I thought she couldn't wear this anymore and she proved me wrong. And just to let you know, because you'd... Continue reading

We had a similar walk through the Maine woods about a month ago. We were staying in a tiny house along a frozen creek and we had a fantastic early morning walk through the trees and then returned by way of the frozen water. We saw a flock of turkey tracks that had crossed the creek and tiny little tracks (mouse?) running between trees.

Today I am thankful for... ~my curious little babe who doesn't discard any nature find as too little or dull. ~the warmth of a wood burning stove. We love it, the dogs love it, the cats love it. Ash, wood chips, melting piles of snow, random bees and beetles awakened... Continue reading

Oh, that forest treehouse is awesome. My daughter would love it.

Today I am thankful for... ~a walk with the little babe through a garden area at the local park, still full of dried stalks and seed heads, rustling in the breeze. ~that little babe of mine with the sharp eyes who spotted the tiny flowers that normally announce the coming... Continue reading

It was an unexpectedly good time.

I'm always amazed at the things that she spots - she is lower to the ground, yet my daughter spotted the nest.

Yes, Millbrook Marsh is a great place, especially on a quiet weekday morning when there aren't many other people there.

I knew about them being nearly gone, but I was surprised to find a whole grove of them in this setting. I thought perhaps they were there to encourage wildlife, since the gamelands are mainly maintained for hunting purposes. Thanks for sharing the link Denise.

Sending them to the wind!

That is a really sweet shawl; I love the texture that it has. I recently made my first fringed shawl, for myself, and have been wearing it nonstop. However, I admit that it is not very practical, and my poncho/capelet is better for when I'm actually trying to get some work done.

This is a VERY modified version of the Harbor Pullover. I used the pattern's sizing information, but knitted the entire sweater on size 7 needles (because I don't have a small size 8), which is not what it called for. I added the chevron pattern which is from the Antrorse... Continue reading

Love the edging - it really gives it a nice fun finish.
