I've been wanting to give a little facelift to these cabinets for quite awhile. Especially after we got the dining room aka homeschool room painted (saving that project for another post). At first I picked a green color.... and I really pretty much hated how it looked with the soft yellow in the dining room. I don't know what I... Continue reading

Yes! I remember that "indefinite" enlistment. It felt so huge.... and then.... here we are with twenty years in. It went by slowly, but quickly... I'm sure you understand that :) Your dream sounds fabulous!! You can certainly do ALL of that and more in the coming years. Even though the constant uprooting is hard, I wouldn't change any of it. We often joke that we don't have a local number for an emergency contact, but we could break down in our car just about anywhere in the United States and have a friend to call :) And so it goes..... Many good wishes to you in achieving your dreams as well! xo!

I totally agree! Massachusetts and New York have some tax benefits that are hard to pass up for retired military. So we're looking in both of those places. Wishing you guys the best of luck in finding your perfect place too!

Hi there :) The clay hand was painted with Amaco’s velvet underglaze, dried overnight, and then topped with clear glaze. The underglazes are here : http://www.amaco.com/shop/product-458-velvet-v-underglazes-lead-free.html We have really loved working them….. especially for kid projects!

Happy first day of spring! From now on any wintry weather will be laughed at and referred to as fickle spring weather. That fifteen degrees this morning and the flurries forecasted for tonight? Oh well, that's just spring. In like a lion, out like a lamb they say.... (haha winter, we won!) I spent a rather embarrassing amount of time... Continue reading

The seasons were more subtle when we lived in the south.... sometimes I do miss the mild weather... and right now I even miss the heat! My body is craving sunshine & warmth for sure...... But it will come. Spring is on the way......

I've seen bees here too, lol!! This winter broke the record in Boston this year.... over 108 inches!! Crazy! But it is melting slowly. Spring is winning..... even though it might snow more tomorrow. (I'm ignoring the forecast!) Bring on the MUD!!

Oh, dreams. They are made up of hard work and good ideas and hope. Many moons ago our first dream was a camp in the woods. We bought cabin books and magazines. Searched for land. Studied kits and plans for cabins. Crunched numbers. Saved, and saved. I imagined driving up to our camp, kids in tow, a giant hammock waiting... Continue reading

It's nowhere near a real farm, I know. But there are morning chores just the same. Especially in the winter when water freezes and snow covers the floor of the coops. Everyone needs fresh water. A bit of hay or straw. Perhaps some shoveling to clear away snow under their feet. The chickens have been spoiled with sunflower seeds, leftover... Continue reading

Soaked cashew cookie sounds interesting….. and I LOVE baklava! My kitchen is usually a wreck of projects too. SO many things going on in there and strewn with bits of kid projects. It’s the heart of the house for sure :)

Thank you :) That is on our list to read! We purchased the audio and the paper book to read. (and we do some tv:) I think Dr Who will be a thing here in the future. So many of their friends are super into it! I totally agree with you on audio books and vocabulary…… the same is true for Luke. The audio books made it so much easier for him to be part of his big sister’s abscission with Percy Jackson, and he LOVED the audio series. Greek and Roman Mythology tends to rule our days right now!
