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…

3 Bags Full

Last January was rocky, and regularly unpleasant.  The start of 2012, by comparison has been as light and easy as the fluffy sheep who are my temporary charges. Our family has taken up with the Bourgeois, who own Philosopher’s Wool in beautiful Inverhuron.  We are…

Peek

I have so much on my mind, but very little I feel like committing to the eternity of planet Blogsphere.  Fall is well upon us, heaving it’s cold wet breath on our backs.  Our firewood is soaking and not yet stacked in our garage, perhaps…

Snaps

This summer brought us our first nephew, Kieran.  Here we are happily making total fools of ourselves trying to keep him from fussing: We canoed lots, but never enough: Scott also got to join Tim and the Cut Down Crew on a hunting excursion.  Our…

Winter is Holding

Skating on our front pasture.  My animals, human and hoofed.  For Amish animals, they sure know how to work the camera. Come. On. Spring.

Definitely a White One

Best holiday wishes to all those Christmas Celebrators who read my blog!  I hope you have a wonderful time with your families and friends.  Eat, drink and be merry.  Just don’t do that second thing and drive, or I’ll have to kick your ass. MERRY…

Post 30

Well.  I’ve turned 30.  I’ve had no revelatory realizations about age, but I did make wicked spelt flour dinner buns in my new mixer.  (No rise, 5 minutes of kneading). Nothing is different.  I’m just one year closer.  Each day feels like one day closer,…
