Oh, honey. just seeing this now. We have been there, time and again. These are the hardest to shake off. But we learn, we pick ourselves up, and we carry on. Sorry for your loss and all of the messy feelings that come along with it. x

Hello, friends! I've been contacted by several people in the past weeks asking why they are no longer receiving blog notifications. I'm guessing a few of you missed the memo that I have moved my blog, and thought I'd send... Continue reading

Hi Elizabeth! The bread that Sage made was actually yeast-leavened. It is this recipe, and since we didn't have access to coarse Irish wheat, he made the substitution with a bit of wheat germ, as outlined. Enjoy! https://www.davidlebovitz.com/ballymaloe-irish-brown-bread-recipe/

Lupine is all about the celebrations. I mean seriously all about it. Is professional party-planning a life goal? If so, she's already there. Each year she goes full out for Valentine's Day, friends' birthdays, Winter Solstice, and our spring celebration.... Continue reading

Glimpsing this sweet moment last night did all sorts of funny things to my heart. Because most days lately, this swing hangs empty. Yet it feels like only a heartbeat ago when, one summer evening, the four of us crafted... Continue reading

Such a bummer that Amazon retired their "store" feature and the list is lost. What categories were you most interested in? I can do a future book list in the coming months, perhaps.

After a month or two away, we brushed off our Bodgery membership and headed back to our makerspace for the very best sort of homeschooling day. A full day of making is truly our bliss. Honestly -- what could be... Continue reading

I'm one for never looking up a weather forecast, for any reason. Ever. Fortunately I married a man who does it often. (Sometimes I suspect for entertainment purposes only.) Thankfully, he filled me in that there was snow in the... Continue reading

If the photos above are any indicator, we'd have twice as much syrup in the pantry if we hadn't developed such a taste for hot sap at all stages of cooking. In truth, this ritual is more of our spring... Continue reading

Hey Charity! The knife is our favorite, a Light My Fire from Mora. Here's an afflink to the page where we bought it: http://amzn.to/2oAzG2F. We have, on occasion, found them on Sierra Trading Post as well, for a bargain. (Every member of our family has one!)

Hi Lena! I went into detail in the article I wrote for Taproot (linked above), but essentially bitter flavors stimulate your digestive system to improve digestion and nutrient absorption and reduce stomach upset. This book, but the founders of Urban Moonshine looks promising. I havent laid my hands on it yet, but I do trust and appreciate their work. (Thats an afflink, FYI.) Hope its helpful for you!

Lupine and I spent the morning prepping two small, personalized batches of digestive bitters. We enjoy drinking them in either carbonated or still water before meals, boosting our digestion and giving us something to sip on while we cook. I've... Continue reading

Hey, Amy! The kids and I have decided to set aside specific time for some bare-bones "lessons" this season, to round out their growing knowledge. Specifically we're (two to three times per week) doing spelling, math, creative writing, and (when we remember to add it) sexuality and reproductive health. Still unschooling 99% of the time though... :-)
