So, what do you think? I'm still working on getting data into the pages, but would love to hear from you! Do they need more contact forms? Less? Allow for comments on all the pages? Sidebars? I've currently left all pages except the blog here very blank to allow for a "cleaner" look at our… Continue reading New Site!

No pics this time; I don't think you will want to see them. As many of you may be experiencing, we're getting a lot of blasts of arctic cold, and a lot of unseasonably cold weather. It was 3 degrees when I woke up this morning, which is usually unheard of in this area--at least… Continue reading Chilling Cold
To start the year off, we've gotten a new Facebook page. So if that's your thing, feel free to head on over! This blog is still my primary focus to talk it all out, update on what's going on and to post about our projects, but I think the Facebook page will allow us to… Continue reading New Facebook Page!
As the holiday season comes to a close, we have piles of food all over the house that we simply can't eat as fast as it needs to be eaten--two turkeys, one an over-cooked failure suitable for chili and the other perfect sandwich material; a bushel of apples needing to be canned; scalloped potatoes and… Continue reading Mountains of Food

Not that there's anything too seriously wrong with it, just a lot of mismanagement in the last year. And I'm paying for it dearly. So, while I go back to a… Continue reading Christmas is Sneaking Up!

Twenty years ago my grandmother (the one who reminds me of frogs and soil and azaleas and drawing trees… Continue reading Weekend Wrap-Up: Crochet Binge
Last Thursday some pretty strong winds came through. At night, we could hear the flag hitting against the house and trees in the area snapping. But we had long ago taken out the pines that could have taken out our house. We didn't think much had been affected. Then, Friday morning. I went outside to… Continue reading An Unexpected Friday
There's so many more important things to update you on. Like the animals you don't know about yet and the updates on ones I haven't talked about in months. The structures we've built and those we're behind on. Animal movement (we were playing musical coops for a while there). The good (and bad) ways of… Continue reading Bumper Stickers, Labels, Backyard Art, Oh My!
I'm giving in. I have handed the garden over to the chickens. These past few weeks, I haven't been giving the garden the attention it needs, or that it deserved. I've put at least 1 bushel of tomatoes in the compost, likely more. I've let at least another half bushel or bushel go bad on… Continue reading Handing the Garden Over
