Nature –

Journal Entry 10 June 2009 No shots were fired during dinner. Funny how we come to note such events. Since we didn’t appear to be in a war zone this evening we slipped into our Tevas, drove down into the lower pasture and stopped at the water crossing. A creek hike was in order. Chris…

100th post – and time for a gift

Journal entry:24 May 2009 The sky was a deeper blue just above the hill to the northeast. The trees there grew darker as we ate our dinner. Rain was coming. I could see the storm as it moved towards us and I could feel a different energy begin to tingle on the surface of my…

Two OTN

A wee bit of knitting has been happening here in the wilderness – not much, just a wee bit. On little needles. With very thin yarn. First is a lovely design by Kay Meadors titled – get this – Lavender Fields. Yep. Kay handpainted the yarn I’m using based on the colors of our lavender…

To begin the round of classes I took Fittin’ Mittens with Joan Shrouder. Don’t tell but I think everyone in the family is getting mittens for…

A few photos of the house

It’s been a busy wet spring at the farm. This Saturday we’re finally back to Cherry Street Farmer’s Market. CSFM is like our home base and it’s always good to see old friends and customers, many that we’ve not seen in months. Last time we saw most of the people from market we were still…
