For instance, this pretty bowl of spalted Maple which Randy made for me from a tree we had to remove from the property. And tho it’s early and still chances of frost, some things aren’t worried about a little thing like that. My peas are now a couple inches [...]

Our promised rain… well, they said 60% chance…. turned out to be 40% that it wouldn’t. Not a drop. Very disappointing as we really do need it and our rain is very late this year. This storm all went north of us it looks like, tho we did have our first little fire last evening. [...]
We had a great time in Arcata at the Natural Fiber Fair but I came home with a ‘gift’ from someone. Sore throat, coff, head ache… Not bad, but certainly not good. I’m sure I’ll be over it soon. Meantime, I am working on projects as usual. And the tomatoes are getting ripe at last. [...]
It’s been down in the 80′s all week and in the 40′s at night. I love it but my tomatoes don’t. They are ripening a couple at a time, slowly. I have some veggies in the dehydrator today, zucchini, peppers, green beans, a roma type tomato, stuff to make into my soup mix. I dried [...]

How time flies… whether you’re having fun or not! Well, I guess I have been having a little fun. It’s getting the garden in time, doing all the chores that were neglected all winter. But I have been weaving, too. Have been inspired to try a couple new (to me) techniques on the looms. One [...]
Well, I got a hair cut. And the rhubarb is ripe and very tasty!
We spent our 28th anniversary and his 60th birthday on the road. Had a great time, too. Visited Death Valley. and Las Vegas along with many other places along the way. I have way toop many pictures to share here, tho. We say Donnie and Marie and they were great. What energy they have for [...]
Well, not yet. But it’s been raining or slushing for over a week with another week forecasted. The brighter side is that the snow level is around 4000′ which is putting down snow where it needs to be and melting it out of my yard! The daffie that had it’s shining little face pushed into [...]
