A Rule of Nature

It happens all around us.   Sometimes it is a harsh reminder, other times an appreciation and relief.  I had already planned this post around it without really looking at it for what it was. Survival.  Survival of the fittest. PRICKLES K and I planted these native to Utah cacti last year.  We have no idea…… Continue reading A Rule of Nature

Small Successes

Happy Weekend everyone! This week was filled with success.  But not the completion of the T-Shell cardigan.  That’s quite alright.  There is no occasion specifically I was trying to finish it for so there really was no true deadline, but it would have been nice to have had it done before starting on the Mom’s…… Continue reading Small Successes

Speckled Eggs

We’ve been anticipating it for weeks and it finally happened.  The Button Quail have begun to lay!  We think there are 3 cocks and 2 hens, thought it could be 2 and 3 respectively.  So far we have only had 2 eggs in a day, but we are only a few days in.  I don’t…… Continue reading Speckled Eggs

Sunday Funday – at least for me!

Weeds = 0, T =1 !  They have all been sprayed or pulled depending on the type.  But with a conscious effort to be earth friendly – not to mention chicken and doggie friendly – I use a non-toxic, non-hazardous weed killer .  In case any of you have already seen this recipe floating around on Facebook or Pinterest…… Continue reading Sunday Funday – at least for me!

Super Saturday

Happy Sunday to you!  Saturday was a success for me.  I managed to maintain my focus on the task at hand and completed quite a few to-do items. First up was the lock on the sliding door.  It had worn out and the little hook had stopped going up and down so for the last…… Continue reading Super Saturday

Shaggy Dog Shenanigans

K always refers to it as my ‘standing desk’.  Not the ‘office’, not the ‘computer’, but the standing desk.  When he comes home from work – ‘Hi Honey, where are you?  Oh, are you at your standing desk?’ or ‘Hey Sweetie, are you working at your standing desk?’   Lol – he knows it’s things…… Continue reading Shaggy Dog Shenanigans

Rainy Weekend Rehabs and Rows

Happy Sunday all! After a first cup of coffee at home and watching the rain from the comfort of the couch, K and I  decided to head out to breakfast at a neighborhood diner and a favorite of ours.  Britton’s, in my opinion, has the best chile verde around and it makes for a killer omelet!…… Continue reading Rainy Weekend Rehabs and Rows

Nice while it lasted

It was fleeting, but for the space of one Sunday morning and afternoon it felt like spring.  Yesterday K and I awoke to the snow melted away, sunny skies and temps in the 50s!  For some of you that still seems cold, but after weeks with the highs in the 20s and low 30s here…… Continue reading Nice while it lasted

Gingerbread, a Groundhog, a Chicken and an Egg

I am not a multi project knitter.  Unless there is an unexpected reason to stop one project and pick up an other, like an invitation to a baby shower, I like to finish one project before I start a new one.  This can certainly work against me however.  Because if I have an issue with…… Continue reading Gingerbread, a Groundhog, a Chicken and an Egg
