Thanks for all the sweet words about the finished knit blanket. I love it so - and I love how it's making me think about slow knitting. The beauty and magic of having something continuously going for so many years,... Continue reading

Seven years ago this month (the blog tells me), I cast on for this giant of a blanket. Harper was just a year old, Annabel wasn't here, and we weren't even on the farm yet! It has sat, all this... Continue reading

We do our best to make as many 'dates' with our kiddos as possible. But I can't remember the last time someone had a solo sleepover with Mom AND Pop. This weekend, the perfect opportunity arose with an errand Steve... Continue reading

Body Jenga! Did you know it's a thing? I didn't either, until yesterday afternoon mid-snowstorm when we had made about as much art as anyone wanted to in a day, listened to stories for hours, done some baking, and I... Continue reading

So...we got some snow! Rather a lot, actually. It just kept snowing, and snowing, and snowing..... And would you guess what's going to happen today? A snowstorm! Ah, we are getting ALL of a winter condensed into one week this... Continue reading

We were slammed with snow this week, and the older kids out of school for two days in a row. That's unusual, really...Maine tends to clean up after a foot of snow quickly. But the snow just kept coming, and... Continue reading

"Give Love" Annabel's sign read for the march we attended last week. Those are glitter-covered bunny ears on her sign, for no other reason than glitter covered bunny ears belong wherever you can find a place for them, right? Why... Continue reading

My children need no reminders. Being children, and loving winter as they do, they're outside just as often as can be. Sometimes they'll spend a whole long day on the mountain, come home and pop their heads inside long enough... Continue reading

I think it's official. I crochet. My current knitting project is a big and wonderful sweater, but a bit too bulky for carting around here and there and everywhere. All the places I go. But oh, a granny square? Well,... Continue reading

I've been thinking back a lot, like many of us surely, to 2008. A much younger crew of three kiddos were in our family at the time of the election, at such impressionable and important ages. Heck, I was younger... Continue reading
