We all know how time can fly…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Well, well. Another month gone by. I honestly mean to post more often, but time is a pretty valuable commodity. It’s not that I’m run off my feet (most days) but to find a chunk of time when I can sit quietly and put together a narrative is not so easy. Life is busy, caring […]

What the Family is up to.

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Well, winter has set in… or has it? Who knows these days. As I write this, it is snowing, but it’s supposed to be +20 in three days. Funny funny. We greatly enjoyed our garden this year, as evidenced in past posts. I didn’t get around to harvesting all of the herbs before this cold […]

After Another Long Break…

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

We’ve been so busy living life these days that I haven’t taken the time to write about it. We’ve taken a few more pictures recently though, and it’s always a good excuse to write a post to go along with a new photo uplaod. Sophie is doing very well, she’s adjusted nicely to the day […]

May Pictures

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

I was reminded today that it has been quite some time since new images were added to the gallery.  In fact, as yet there had been no album for the month of May.  I have remedied the situation, and now there are some pictures of us from this month.  Most of them are outdoor pictures, […]

The latest.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Our little chatterbox Sophie sure learns by example.  She has taken a great interest in our portable phones, pushing as many buttons as possible any time she gets her hands on them.  Lately though, she has really started to imitate our manerisms as well; she’ll push a few buttons then put the phone to her […]

On the growing of all things and the eating of some…

All things are still growing well, and the first harvest of sweet, spicy, juicy radishes from the garden produced some delicious specimens. Yum yum.

Busy Time

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

So I’m thinking I’ll leave work at the end of the month.  They need me until then to fill in for my replacement as he takes a week off, but after that I think I’ll be ready to let it all go.  This week has been busy with lots of field work (with a helper […]

Gardening and Backyard Shenanigans

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Yay, the garden is in!  Radishes expected in two weeks!  It even looks productive already, cause we bought some herbs and tomatos, and were given even more tomatos by Marian.  Last week was a very busy one, finishing the prep work, hauling in new peat moss to mix with the black clay, and a whole […]

Spark’s Busy Day

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Wow, I don’t know what was going on, but yesterday sure was an eventful day in my womb!  From the moment I woke up to the time I went to sleep, anytime I sat still Spark was doing summersaults and dancing cha-chas in my insides!  Felt like some “nesting” was going on inside as well […]
