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'm thankful for the flowers, thankful for the bees, thankful that the yellow pollen doesn't make me sneeze. I'm thankful for the time to putter, thankful for the time to play, thankful for the beauty of a sunny summer day. I'm thankful for my seeing eyes, thankful for my smelling... Continue reading

So it turns out that despite repeated attacks by the groundhog, my little babe is going to have at least one orange pumpkin and there are several more in various stages of growth. We also have a mysterious squash vine that was a volunteer from the compost pile. From its... Continue reading

Earlier this week, the little babe declared that we have not been in the woods for a while. So later that afternoon, keeping one eye on the sky (we have had thunderstorms every day for a week straight), we entered the woods, just she and I - no dogs, no... Continue reading

Lovely garden and thoughts. I think I'd like a house tour too - love the outdoor oven and front door handle!

It amazes me when it happens - to know that there is so much going on inside their little heads!

Thank you!

Thank you! Personally, one of the reasons that I knit is for the learning experience. I learn something new with each project - and sometimes it is that it just wasn't meant to be!

All back to normal!
Luckily, she likes her "medicine"!

My husband took time out of his busy day to surprise me with handpicked elderberries. That's love folks. He won't even be enjoying the fruits of his labor in something sweet because they're destined for elderberry cold syrup. (Which is pretty tasty, but not something that you're hoping to need!)...

It has been one full year since I completed knitting the first sweater for myself - everything before that was toddler size! I made an Annabel Cardigan and while I like the simple construction of it, I didn't pay close enough attention to the sizing and it ended up being... Continue reading

I had never even heard about it until I saw the signs, then I started seeing it more often. The smooth purple stem makes it easy to identify.

Yes, it was the hemlock plant, not the tree, that killed him.

It is interesting to look at things from the shorter ones point of view sometimes!

Yes, we have the big furry kind! Though luckily these are not that fierce. Yesterday we trapped a second one in less than an hour after setting out the trap - he was lured in by a ripe tomato and cuke.

Yep, this is a fantastic time of year for good food!

Sounds lovely Nan.

Yep, pretty neat.

I was also thinking about jam - combining them with blueberries and raspberries for a triple berry combo. Garden memories are good ones to have.

I guess I didn't find many ripe ones... and about those onions, just yesterday we had a major thunderstorm, several hours of rain, which we have not had in months. And of course, did I think to go out and pull the onions inside, no? So I hope they can dry out without rotting.

As the little babe and I were pushing through high grasses, knee deep for me, head height for her, I heard her mumbling, "Out of the underbrush, out of the wild, out of the underbrush, out of the wild..." She then went on to change the first part of the... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~more berry picking time with the little babe. Now in season - blackberries. They are definitely not my favorite; I don't really like the taste or texture. But that is what our local organic u-pick farm has right now, so that is what we've got.... Continue reading

I took my bottle of cordial on vacation and it was gone before the two weeks was up, so no need for preservation this time!

I am very thankful for the space that we have and the time that I can put into it.
