Anybody Home

Hi.   Believe it or not, I still have the internet.  In the month of May, we got connected at long last to HIGH SPEED internet.  This spring also saw the opening of a sushi restaurant in the town of Kincardine.  Folks, it is a…

Wrapping Up

It’s that time of year.  Chickens are long gone.  Pigs have gone to the butcher.  Turkeys went this morning and come back from the processor tonight.  [Pick up is 8pm, for those who have reservations!]  While I will miss my giant white lawn ornaments, I…

Little Bits

There have been so many blessings this summer.   Delicious dinners at the Harbour Street Brasserie, where we get to play dress up like adults and enjoy perfection on a plate. Tiring out the children with sunshine.  Happiness induced exhaustion. Paddling in our Bananas Gorilla…

The Little Gardeners

Around the Farm

Finally got my pictures together so I could participate in Farmama’s Around the Farm Thursdays!  Here we go! Pigs have learned to drink from their automatic waterer. This is a huge blessing, it means no more hauling 200′ of hose to them 2x a day,…

He Rides

  Also, the pigs have come.  They are Berkshire/Tamworth, the black one is female, the other are male.  This is what happens when you have two artistic, non-farmers pick out piglets: “Hmmm, I think I like the spotted ones!”  Yup.  That’s us. Last years’ pigs…

Free the Children

I took the kids into town today for Bob’s swim lessons with Esther, the swim whisperer.  Bob is in salamander, and loves swimming with flippers on.   His class starts when AquaFit ends, so I get to see my school teachers and my friends mothers naked…

Justify This

Need the push to stop buying animal products from the supermarket?  Added “eat better” to your list of things to do, or know someone who has?  Watch the next two minutes and a half minutes with your eyes open and you’ll be over the edge. …

Candy with Some Gingerbread

Inspired by GirlGoneChild, I set out to make a gingerbread house with the kids.  Way too much fun.  In true form, the kids preferred the black licorice “pipes” to all other candy.
