Hello friends! Let’s chat about winterizing since it’s starting to look like that may be next on my plate. I’m really not ready to see summer slowing down but that’s all part of the deal I guess, gotta explore all the changing seasons. And I do really enjoy that part of it. Fall is aContinue reading “To-Dos”

Two Steps Forward…

Hello friends! Anyone else ever get to feeling, sometimes, like they are just forever reacting to things instead of actually accomplishing new tasks and making any actual progress? This has been the whole farm this summer, seems like I cannot for the life of me get ahead, I just keep reacting to issues as theyContinue reading “Two Steps Forward…”

Tsch Tsch Tsch

Hello friends! What a week. I unfortunately got pretty sick again this week, but I think mostly due to the very long hours at work and the weather and pollen counts. It’s not been the most fun so I don’t have a huge amount to report.  My dad and Christopher were able to get someContinue reading “Tsch Tsch Tsch”

The Nerdy Owl is a Know-It-Owl

Hello friends!It’s very early in the morning. I’m awake because a hoot owl has taken to slowly circling the house and, unsurprisingly, hooting in the early morning hours.Its supremely unsettling. I tend to wonder if it’s to upset the dogs, or if there’s vermin in the bushes around the house that he wants, but eitherContinue reading “The Nerdy Owl is a Know-It-Owl”

Mail Call

But it all worked out in the end.Continue reading “The Event of the Season”

Everyone Loves a Good Back Porch

Hello friends!Its officially work outside season, which is, of course, the best thing ever.Not only is there actual outside work to be done (like redoing the gardens) there’s also just “work that can be done outside”. Luckily, I can usually swing a couple hours outside with my work laptop before the battery starts screaming. It’sContinue reading “Everyone Loves a Good Back Porch”

Fix It Lists

Hello friends!The funny thing about spring time is that it’s always fix it season. It makes sense when you think about it, most things have sat around all winter, cold, unmoving, and without the general mini maintenance that comes with daily use.We have a little irrigation pump that we use to water the pasture andContinue reading “Fix It Lists”

Sunshine Musings

Hello friends!  I have been basking in the sunshine! It’s been gloriously sunny and warm for a few days now and it’s just the absolute greatest thing! It’s been in the 50s!  It’s been so nice for melting the snow and drying things out and lifting spirits around here. Of course, everything is sunk nowContinue reading “Sunshine Musings”
