So I was all set to tell you all about our trip to Cape Cod (and to the City), but I think you all can imagine how much fun it was. Everyday was a new adventure. The Mister really showed me a good time. We did things that he wouldn't 'normally' do, like go for … Continue reading Cape Cod 2018
As fall is finally here and winter is bearing down on us (where, oh, where did fall go??! It was so quick I missed it), I'm wrapping up the canning season. Although, really, you can can all year long, and I plan on doing that this year. I still have cranberry season to go! Anyway, … Continue reading Canning Season update
I've updated, and upgraded, my online store! It's been a long time in the making but I decided to switch over to Big Cartel. I'm very happy with the platform thus far. I love making these hats. They are so fun, and such quick knits. I love using yarn that is sourced, dyed, and produced … Continue reading Shop Update
It's hard for me to write this post. Keeping chickens is one of the things that I dearly love about homesteading. I love their little personalities. We don't eat a lot of eggs so keeping chickens is something different for me. They become part of the family. At least for me they do. The Mister … Continue reading Keeping Chickens…the end.
Over the past few weeks the Mister and I have been able to get out on the river. A lot. Well, before the river became too high and 'off colored' we were out in the boat a lot. We would wait for him to close the shop and then we would put the boat in … Continue reading The River
Fall finally showed up here in Upstate NY. Fall is definitely my favorite season. I mean, I love all seasons. I love that we live some place where you get to experience all the seasons. But Fall. I love Fall. The colors. The smells. The light. The crispness in the air. The sky. You are … Continue reading Fall…Finally
Last Saturday was the first annual Catskills Fiber Festival held at the Dancing Cat Saloon and Catskill Distillery. I met up with some long time friends and headed over to the festival with them. But first I stopped in my favorite cafe, Cafe Adella Dori, that I don't get to visit often enough. I started … Continue reading Catskills Fiber Fest
Hey! Hey! Is anybody still here? I am! We have been super busy the past couple of weeks. I'll update you on everything that's been going on. So my last post was almost two weeks ago. I've been reading a lot of books! YAY for that! I have tons of book reviews to share with … Continue reading Anybody Here?
Once upon a time I used to read Young Adult literature. A lot. I loved it. There are so many fantastic YA authors out there. I fell in love. But then other things got in the way and I stopped reading YA. But I have been inspired recently to pick back up where I left … Continue reading Book Review: Fat Girl on a Plane
What? A no picture post? I know, I know. But I just haven't taken any pictures lately and don't really know what pictures would be appropriate for a post about new routines. We don't need pictures anyway. Not right now. Right now we can just chat. About routines. You see I've been feeling a little … Continue reading Routine
