The Saga Continues

The Mailbox Miscreants were back this weekend. Two new mailboxes for the farm are needed. Did you know there’s a device that you can attach to your mailbox that releases skunk oil when it’s bashed? var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview();

Nap dream

Mid- afternoon I crawled on the bed for a nap. I didn’t really think I’d sleep but the idea felt good to me. I did sleep, and dream. The only dream I recall was being in an elevator. It was made of light cream colored marble. To change floors you had to slide a rectangle…

The Big Read

Jung-at-Heart had this list on her blog. I thought I’d give it a whirl. “The Big Read answers a big need. Reading at Risk: A Survey of Literary Reading in America, a 2004 report by the National Endowment for the Arts, found that not only is literary reading in America declining rapidly among all groups,…

Miscreants

We’re near the end of building a house and got an “official” address a few weeks ago so we put up a new mailbox beside the current farmhouse mailbox. I had a goofy little tingly joy when we put it up. Chris stenciled the address in a nice green. New house – new mailbox –…

You know you're in love when….

…you wake up at 4am suddenly knowing the perfect yarn for the next lace scarf you want to cast on, that the needle is available and where it’s stored, that the pattern is printed and already in a sheet protector on your knitting table, but the yarn is stashed in a plastic bin that is…

A different kind of beautiful

A few folks have asked me about the fire a few weeks ago. One benefit is the tick population will be reduced around my favorite thinking perch overlooking the pond-without-water. It’s a really great little spot that I rarely get to visit on foot during the spring and summer. I won’t show you photos of…
