Hiding. But they found me. *And* they had a camera!
A One-Line Bio! How can I possibly sum up my bio in one line??
Interests: family, life, travel, home education, learning, reading, regular boring food, exotic interesting food, the great outdoors, spirituality, experiencing other cultures, music, religious diversity, the world, the galaxy, the universe, everything. {Except romance novels & gross horror films. The former I find boring and the latter creep me out).

So jealous of your snow! Every night on the news I see all the 'cold weather warnings' for the east, while here in Utah we're snowless, sigh. (Well, aside from in the high Unitas I suppose.) I've just begun to get my sadly neglected (for years!) typepad blog into some order. So glad to see another post from you! ~Lisa

Ah I've been absent from your blog too long - relying only on our fb friendship to keep caught up on all your doings! 2016 has been such a hard year for my family, I fear I've allowed myself to be distracted by difficulties and unwanted "to do's". I need to nurture more, focus on all those little, so important, homey things. I love your new desk area, and the little table for meetings with clients most especially! Happy Autumn!
Our focus word for 2016 is... What do you plan to focus on during the upcoming New Year? Continue reading

Hi Dawn. Lovely books all. I've been trying and trying to finish a post answering your Christmas tree questions but life keeps getting in the way. Today I hope to manage it! I'm also looking forward to participating in your Teas - a subject dear to my heart. Have a wonderful day! ~Lisa
Sounds lovely and very hygge-ish to me. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Decorating walking trails is a great idea. If the person doesn't begin this year, maybe you should do it! :) Yes - I felt so bad for the weed to, but perhaps it's having it's moment of glory now.

I love love your advent! The apples,evergreen boughs, and candle are lovely. Naturally now I'm wanting to do the same myself - though yes the squirrels would certainly grab up the apples and perhaps my dogs would as well! Teatime and advent are both very important around our home as well, I'd love to send you some of our goings on as soon as I make the time (notice I don't say "find" - I never find it, have to make it ). Your mug is so pretty - and I'll bet the cookies were delicious. My Christmas has been up for sometime, and yesterday I took down the last of Thanksgiving decorations, putting more Christmas in their place. (Thanksgiving decorations are kept to the dining room :) And the first of our advent candles was lit last night. I can't (as usual) believe the season is already upon us, and hope to make it as calm and long lasting as possible. Blessings, Lisa
Thanks Laurel, I hope to share much more "hygge-ness" throughout the rest of this year and 2016!

Hi Dawn, Well...I left a comment earlier but something happened to it! Ah well. I believe I spotted "I am a Bunny" among those favorite board books, it was always a favorite of my littles too. I have several "cozy corners" set up around the house, I'd love to share some pics of them with you. Autumn & Winter are my two favorite seasons (and the more snow the better!
Yesterday was supposed to be a Snow Day. (Which I am inordinately fond of, thus the caps.) And evidently it... Continue reading
