Working With the Rain

I’ve worked our garden through droughts and dry spells. I’ve shaken my fist at giant rodents called deer who ate my entire garden down to nubs. (I still growl when I spot a deer. I don’t think they are cute, not in the least.) This is the first year that I’ve had a hard time…

Shifting Seasons

Things are shifting around here.  The seasons are fighting for control of the weather.  The snow melted, then it rained a lot, so the ground is seeping with water.  When I take a step, the mud squishes and water comes out of the ground.  We are trying to get our barn door repaired in this….

Process of Elimination

I knew a couple of years ago, that there would be some changes in our future.  About 4 months ago, I really started feeling it, and told my husband.  Right around that time, things actually starting shifted around in our lives. For one, we put one of our houses on the market.  We had one…

Friday, October 5 -Something To Look Forward To?

Here is a portion of what I canned last year. It feels very weird not doing ANY of this canning this year, but I remember how hard it was to do it. Something to look forward to next year?  Today, I plan on taking our orange cat for a check-up at the vet.  Then I’ve…
