Her third birthday party, filled with all of her beautiful people — birthparents, grandparents, aunties, uncle, birthsiblings, cousins — all of us here together, all family now. In my wildest dreams I couldn't have imagined how it could be, and... Continue reading

Oh, autumn, everywhere, and yet, it's still consistently above 80 degrees here. But the sun is low and lovely in the morning. Amelia and I play in the front yard. She collects leaves, crow feathers, splinters of chalk, seed pods... Continue reading

Well, thank you. Thank you, thank you. What an incomparably lovely experience it was to read your kind comments (for Andy, too; I don't know if you know he reads every post, and every comment as well). Thank you so... Continue reading

A few months ago, I stumbled upon this pin on Pinterest. It was a set of embroidered coasters designed by Japanese embroidery designer Hiroko Ishii in the (all-in-Japanese) book Stitch Ideas Volume 11 (ISBN 978-4-529-04826-2). Before I knew it, I... Continue reading

Hello there! How are you? We're settling into fall here. It's come on with speed and determination. At 6 a.m. this morning, Amelia and I laid in bed in the dark bedroom, listening to the rain outside. She noticed it.... Continue reading

When the rain came, we were at the top of the butte, sitting in the burnt grass. The purple clouds had stacked up and marched across the sky. I'd talked her out of wearing two tutus at the same time... Continue reading

Autumn weather is taking her time, coming in in spurts, though the apples are already mostly picked, with brown spots and worms in the ones that are left. We found a few small beauties, sweet and crisp and filled with... Continue reading

It was finally cool and cloudy enough to go for a walk in the woods. Oh sweet mercy, how I have missed them. Ever so much. Her Forest Flower, made ever so many years ago, now a perfect fit. This... Continue reading

I have very few photos to show for the past few weeks. In reality, there's been a blur of activity, but I couldn't keep up with it. Andy has been on vacation since August 17 and we've done so much... Continue reading

It's always the best. I think it's my favorite day of the whole summer, the one we spend at the Clackamas County Fair. We saw sheep and cows and bunnies and cavies and pigs and alpacas. We ate kettle corn... Continue reading

Wah! Here, there, and everywhere. Often in the kitchen. I'm surprised, with all the shopping, cooking, and cleaning, and the broken dishwasher, there's been time to go anywhere, seriously. And yet, I have a moment every single day where I... Continue reading

My reprinted pattern page is on the UPS truck right now out for delivery, so I just want to make sure it printed okay before I put the party hat kits up for sale. Stay tuned and I'll be back... Continue reading

We've had a week of perfect weather. It's incredible, just incredible, how much easier, happier, and sweeter it makes everything. Today it's perfectly sunny, with a slight breeze blowing. Birds are singing. The sprinkler's waving. I feel as if I... Continue reading

August. Dry and irritated and fragile with longing. I was in the back yard this morning, shuffling like a shaggy bear through dead leaves, pawing my way through gossamer cobwebs connecting every object in a fine lace of shimmering silk... Continue reading

So, naturally, all we ever do is eat now, with occasional trips to some kind of water and some kind of summer reading. NOT BAD. It's very good. There has been: Homemade pizza dough and sauce from one of my... Continue reading

Aw, she looks wonderful! And Lydia, you did most of that yourself? My goodness, darling! What an accomplished seamstress you are! This makes my day. Thank you for the shout out! Amy, I just came from Central Library, having not been, believe it or not, in about fifteen years. They have sooooo many vintage children's fiction books I was seriously gobsmacked (and by vintage I mean 70s and 80s and then even older, but you know: our childhood and YA titles. I came home with a huge bag full. I'll never have time to read them but . . . I just had no idea they would have so many of these oldies still at the library. Also made my day. It was a good day! (Even though it's a hundred bloody degrees again.)

Well, I persist. I cleaned out the kitchen cabinet and added forty recipes to my Paprika app and I've been shopping and cooking almost every day. Since my original freak out, we've only eaten out once as a family (when... Continue reading

Oh, okay, this is perfect. You are an artist, who doesn't need privacy?, and you totally know who you are, girl! Head on into that tent and take a pic of Shakey Graves, K? ;) xox Seriously, have so much fun. This looks amazing.

Hot days, hot nights. It looks like we've been home a lot but really we've been outside, in or around water, almost daily. At home, the garden is quickly sizzling, turning from the bright greens of early summer to the... Continue reading

It's only an hour or so away, but it feels like a million miles. What you don't get from pictures is the smell of the ocean and the sound — the incredible volume! — of the waves. It's loud. It... Continue reading

Meems and me to Smith Berry Barn, Hillsboro, Oregon; July 8, 2015. Yes, that's string cheese in the candle holder, "just like Mommy's." Her dress, made here, exactly five years ago. Never, never, never give up. Continue reading
