Yesterday was a momentous day!

Who knew! Our first strawberries were ready to be picked!! And it was only the middle of June. And the flour I ran out of also arrived today, in time to make a cake for the strawberries to sit on. So exciting. We’ll have a regular amount of strawberries from now until the middle of […]

New project under way.

The garage project has begun, and on Wednesday the concrete will be poured. A whole lot of work has gone into getting the form created and ready for concrete. They used a laser level to get everything nice and flat. Very exciting seeing it at this point in its existence. We also got the new […]

First project is done.

Well, almost done. Still have a lot of little projects like staining and varnishing the top of the window seat, and making a cushion. Fortunately neither is time sensitive. At some point there will be a rug but probably a month away from that. The ingredients for the cushion on the window seat are sitting […]

Snow and Sunsets

Winter arrived. Fortunately for us, we had gotten these few inches of snow before the bottom dropped out of the temperatures and we are hopeful the strawberry plants had enough cover that this low temperature didn’t kill the plants. We will know for sure in a few months, right about the beginning of April. We […]

New Year

We got a little bit of snow in December, which promptly melted. Then it snowed again. Then it melted again. Since the weather has been a little boring we’ve been keeping up with that theme and not doing much. The trees are so beautiful with their frosting of snowflakes.

New project.

Managed to not knit something for several days. Takes longer to string all the little beads onto the perl cotton thread than it does to knit this pattern. Just a fun little project.
