It Was 50 Years Ago Today

It Was 50 Years Ago Today {27}

Look.  I don’t want to go all Little House on the Prairie on you – wait – that’s a lie – I always want to go all Little House on the Prairie.  I have a story to tell. One day, when I was getting ready for school in the morning, my mother approached me with a(…)

Monday is Recycling Day

Monday is Recycling Day {8}

It’s still raining today.  That’s only for informational purposes – not for complaining purposes.  I don’t complain about the weather.  It’s such a waste of time.  And I already have so many things to waste my time on. . .   I really don’t mind the rain – if it had stayed (or if it(…)

Sunday Rainy Sunday

Sunday Rainy Sunday {11}

Our house is old.  Really old.  I mean, it’s not as old as the ones on Huguenot Street, but I think one-hundred-sixty-two years qualifies as old.  If I look closely enough I can see evidence of time all over the house and the property as well.  I’ve said before that I enjoy the feeling of history(…)

7 to 14 Days. . .

7 to 14 Days. . . {2}

Just when I was beginning to despair. . . Just yesterday morning I went back and looked at the package.  When will they come up?  I think they might not come up.  Maybe the seeds were bad or too old or there wasn’t enough rain. . .  They didn’t come up in 7 days or(…)

Pinspired and Produced #6

Pinspired and Produced #6 {7}

A few weeks ago, in my second weekly Pinspired and Produced feature, I mentioned that I was working on another, similar project.  Not very long before I started this blog, I bought four quarts of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and one can of each of the two different kinds of Annie Sloan wax.  So far,(…)

She Thought She Could

She Thought She Could {9}

You’ve maybe seen this quote around?  You’ve heard it and felt it’s positive message?  The other day I made a sign with this quote on it and put it up in my kitchen.  Today I realized that it is much more descriptive of my 7 year old daughter than of myself. My son asks a(…)

This Little Love of Mine

This Little Love of Mine {19}

I’ve been married to Mr. Social Media for almost twelve years but I’ve been in love with him for almost twenty.  T w e n t y.  Okay, eighteen and a half.  But still – it’s a long time that we’ve been knowing each other.  Did I ever tell you that we actually grew up(…)

Spring Sunday and The Secret Keeper

Spring Sunday and The Secret Keeper {2}

The day is far too beautiful to sit inside at the computer so I won’t stay long.  It’s been a week since my Easter post and the last 7 days have brought more changes to my yard than I would have thought.  The biggest change is that I mowed the lawn for the first time(…)

Pinspired and Produced #5

Pinspired and Produced #5 {9}

I had a little help with this one.  The kids and I made these fantastic pizza rolls the other night.  As soon as I saw this idea on Pinterest from Krissy at B.Inspired, Mama, I started to think about how I could change it up to make it work for my kids.  I think Krissy’s(…)

A Good Visit

A Good Visit {5}

Several of my recent posts have been about my trip to visit my Aunt Kathie last week.  I’ve talked a lot about what we did while we were there: making deviled Easter chicks with the kids, sewing projects, and taking llamas for a walk.  I haven’t really said anything about Aunt Kathie herself and I doubt(…)

Peas, Peat, and Llama Beans?

Peas, Peat, and Llama Beans? {12}

Okay- I don’t really have any llama beans.  You can get Llama Beans at Wunsapana Farm in Altamont, NY – and at several local retail garden centers near there.  I’m not making typos here.  I don’t mean lima beans.  No.  Llama Beans are the nicely packaged waste product of Teri’s llamas and from what I hear,(…)

Llama Love. . .

Llama Love. . . {7}

Last week, while staying with my Aunt Kathie, I had the chance to visit Wunsapana Farm in Altamont, New York.  Please click the link and read about the farm in detail.  You won’t regret it.  I’m so happy to be able to share a little bit of our experience with you here.  Frankly, Mr. Social(…)

Tomb Cake Anyone?

Tomb Cake Anyone? {8}

Really – when I went looking for Easter crafts – I found a lot of ideas for making a tomb cake.  Tomb cake?  I just feel like those two words don’t really go together.  I do understand the religious significance of this day – though I am not at all religious.  And if I had(…)
