[Bloggy Skip Day] The First Good Day

Photo: I know, they are tacky and plastic, but they are chairs for the yard and they will do. Now we can sit on something remotely accommodating rather than the logs (yes, literal logs) we sat on during the Fall!   It’s a long standing tradition on this blog that I take a “skip” day…

We All Gotta Start Somewhere

Photo: That, my Dear Reader, is a big ol’ skillet full of spaghetti sauce and it’s gonna be the best thing I’ve put in my mouth all day. Kendra over at the Lazy Genius Collective (a cute little corner of the interwebs) has the most brilliant idea: eat a bowl of pasta on Mondays to…

Hopeful Exploration

Photo: Another great one from Over-Christmas-Geode-Smashing. It’s something about the children in the adult-sized safety glasses. The seriousness on their faces makes you smile no matter what mood you’re in.   So, I will confess that I have been meaning to write this post for a few days. It was supposed to be my Quiet…

The Coolest Thing

Photo: Doesn’t this photo just make you feel cold? Seriously. There is nothing warm-lookin’ about this picture.   The forecast for Thursday night into Friday morning? Windchill of -25 degrees. NEGATIVE TWENTY-FIVE DEGREES!! Now, I know I’ve got a few Canadian readers, and maybe ya’ll ain’t that impressed… but I’m impressed! I’m really impressed! Coupled with those temperatures, the super handsome…

Season of Change

Photo: Oh yes, look at all the beautiful details, the glorious color on the petals… isn’t this just a glorious photo!?    Snow on the car, snow on the barn, snow on the grass this morning… no snow on the pavement, but you know it’s coming! Oh, Dear Reader… somebody stop the winter from coming!…

[Quiet Thoughts] Patience and Perfect Practice

Photo: Industry brings about bounty, or so they say. Ever impatient (and seeing quite a bit of fruit on the vine) I chose to pick a bunch of green tomatoes and fry them for snack. Little boys were less than enthused. I thought they were yummy! We are about to be up to our necks…

The Thin Boundary between Everything and Nothing

Photo: I took this picture a long time ago… Ursa Major must have been one when this photo was taken. A year ago, we were just leaving the community when this photo was taken. A year ago. For ya’ll who have been with me for a while, you understand why that’s a little ridiculous. We’ve…

Oh, universe, you are too cute!

Happy Monday, Reader! I am so fortunate that i was able to purchase a new smartphone a few weeks ago, because who knew that i was going to have to blog via my phone today? Just as i was about to share the nonsense of my weekend, my house stopped humming. No power. I heard…
