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 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

Oh, this post made me smile. Last year we had a wonderful day picking apples in Maine in October - just a perfect Fall day. This year we've been picking more locally and pressing our own cider.

Today I am thankful for... A fun weekend with my husband and little babe. There was just so much family goodness and perfect Autumn weather. After a bit of a rough patch with the little babe (I think due to her teeth), she seems to have leveled out a bit.... Continue reading

Love the rug! I believe I found my Christmas gift for this year. I also wondered exactly what I should do with the rug that I purchased - its really too small for a rug and who wants to wipe their feet on it?! But I can't lay it on a flat surface because my cats would claim it and I don't want it covered with cat hair! So a beautiful wall hanging it is. Your rug looks lovely in that spot.

Good for you! I haven't actually made any presents yet, but I am planning!

Thanks for the kind words Gillian. Multi-tasking is the name of the game. It also helps that I sit in the back seat with the little babe when we travel - I get a fair amount of knitting done in the car.

That is a very creative birthday cake topper - not to childish, just right for a pre-teen. Looks like a happy camper!

With the change in the weather, the cooler mornings and the evenings getting dark earlier, my body is feeling the pull to settle down on the sofa with a cup of tea and some yarn. I have completed two vests recently for the little babe. The purple one is the... Continue reading

How interesting - I didn't know that Portsmouth had Fairy Houses! My husband is actually looking at work in that area and we have stopped for pizza at Flatbread several times on our way to Portland.

Almost always a good combo - that's why we're working on the "being nice" part of it.

I agree Robin - I love Maine too!

I'm hoping it teaches her responsibility and love. I worry it could send her the other direction and she'll never want a pet in the house after living with so many now!

I love how they are both smiling.

Are the goats allowed on the ramp too? My Moment is of my little babe and one of her favorite furry buddies. http://lifewiththecrew.typepad.com/my-blog/2014/09/this-moment-being-nice.html

I love the light in that first one and the tower of beans shot! Our days have been like that around here - misty and overcast in the morning with beautiful Autumn sunshine in the afternoons.

Wow - three that you see regularly?! I hope some of this nature time is sinking in. I sometimes get discouraged because we are doing all of this now when she won't remember it, but my husband tells me it is setting a good foundation.

Thanks for sharing CJ.

Thanks so much for commenting Lauren - glad you enjoyed it. And glad I can provide a little education too! At least your daughter knows that cider comes from apples - I think some kids these days are so far out of the food loop that they assume it automatically comes in a plastic jug.
Luckily the chickens (and groundhogs) help with the clean-up. Maybe one day in my romantic farm dream we'll have pigs to help too.
Thank you! Actually, the chickens don't love them as much you think they would. I thought they'd be in heaven, but it is actually the groundhog that lives under our shed who was thrilled! I've caught him out there twice now, chowing down.
Wow, no apples?! They are such a normal part of the diet here. Guess you guys don't use the phrase, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"!
I'm not sure Tracey. I think the important thing is that it is non-iodized.
