And yes, I actually remembered my password to get into my Typepad account but don't ask me how I posted this into acorns......maybe it is supposed to be here. So, if you still are out there, you may be wondering what's been going on in my corner of the world. The Garden: The mini-eggplant produced a lot of fruit. A lot.

Last week Thursday, I picked up two dozen fresh eggs from Carole, my friend and spinning group leader. While we were chatting, she asked if I would like to see the lambs. You can guess my answer, right?! On our... Continue reading

Although I see snowflakes drifting down from the skies this morning, I must say that I know spring is coming. How do I say that with such certainty? What's my evidence? Our number one predictor at Chez Purling Oaks......Blue is... Continue reading
