I found an old blog post that I wrote about two years ago that for some reason I never got around to actually posting! It made me chuckle. Now it's your turn... We took the kids to watch the Navy's Blue Angels last week. Those guys are air-studs for sure. Courageous and Brave. That's what… Continue reading Turn Back Time

Anyone ever done this before? Tips… Continue reading Drying Herbs & a Colonial Recipe
I've decided to stop. Stop waiting for the right time to post pictures. Or write about all the things. I have so many ideas and want-to's that I think I get bogged down with them all and end up not getting to any of them. Anyone else ever feel like this? Life is busy.

We had a really big rain/wind storm the other day and I learned something new... Crabbers, (Watermen? Fishermen?

Want to hear a funny story? It goes like this... It was a dark and windy night (I'm afraid of the… Continue reading Our New-Old-Farmhouse!

Halloween's a'comin and the tricks have already started around here. And by tricks I mean the sort where you sit at your desk for four agonizing hours trying to figure out how to improve the layout of your blog, I do not recommend this for anyone even half as technically challenged as yours truly, and… Continue reading Halloweensie Story: Cordelia the Chicken’s Halloween
I may have gone overboard with the mint this year. I planted sweet peppermint and chocolate mint. And then I tossed out some miscellaneous mint I found hidden in my seed stash. And guess what? I got minted ya'll, and I liked it! Well, technically I'm still getting minted, probably will be for… Continue reading Mama’s Mint Limeade
Every once in a while I come across an illustration that I just fall in love with. This sweet little piece I found a couple of years ago on Etsy, and I don't know if it's the green (my favorite color) or the raindrops (I love rain), or the yellow umbrella, or the cutest little… Continue reading THE FRIDAY FRENZY- Lola Dutch
