Gah – it’s almost May!

Gah – it’s almost May!

My April calendar was damaged and lost in the earlier half of the month and I never did replace it so it’s taken me this long to realize that the end of April is here! It seemed to zip by just as all months do these days. I put together a calendar for May tonight … Continue reading

Whoops – I forgot!

Whoops – I forgot!

I finally did a post last night and forgot to put a link in! Just goes to show that if you get out of the blogging habit for a week, you forget all the details! I mentioned last night that I made my own laundry detergent this month thanks to the lovely Nicole Shiffler. Nicole … Continue reading

Happy Belated Earth Day!

Happy Belated Earth Day!

Isn’t it amazing how quickly things get away from you? I’ve had so much swimming through my head this last couple of weeks that I missed one post, then another and before I knew it an entire week had gone by!

We’ve had sun and clouds and the other day on my drive home I hit rain, hail, snow and ice and a 6 degree temperature drop – all within 10 minutes! It’s no wonder we’re all anxious to get … Continue reading

Little Critters

Little Critters

There are so many ideas that I come across in my random Internet surfing that sometimes it’s hard to remember which post or site in particular sparked an idea. This little craft that I absolutely loved doing was one of those ideas. I saw a post somewhere that featured small “cuddlies” made from a patterned … Continue reading

Factory or Farm

Factory or Farm

Over the past year we’ve begun to really appreciate foods that are locally grown. From the farm fresh eggs and weekly stops at the apple orchard (for Ambrosia apples – I’ve never seen these in the store but they’re yummy and take a long time to brown which is a plus with small children!) to … Continue reading
