Hi there.
It's me again. There has been a change of plan. Wordpress was not working for me....I was baffled and frustrated.
So, I turned to TypePad. And while I am still a wee bit baffled I am not frustrated because I feel I am making progress.
I am at the point now where I feel like I can safely say that I will not be posting from this site any longer.
Feel free to visit me in my new venue - I would love that.

This moment

Photo-ing along with Soulemama this week.
Wishing you all a happy weekend.

Who said?

This coming from a sentimental mama tonite....
Who said that these lovelies could grow up so quickly, and right under this mama's nose?
I remember all three of them so clearly.  As if it was yesterday that they were freshly on the outside.
And the future seemed unnecessary to think of in relation to them and me.

These are my girls.  And I am their lucky mama.
Oh my heart.

On admitting defeat

I know, I am supposed to be gone from this space.  But, wow, I am having a hard time figuring out the new one.  I just can't seem to get it to do what I want.  So, here I am....still, and a little sheepishly.
And it seems that although I should be sewing and felting and sewing some more to get ready for the Farmer's Market, all I can muster is knitting and reading - two very lovely past-times.  So I am going with it.
I am knitting Idlewood with the idea that it may be ready by fall.  As the pictures show, I am knitting both inside and out - I love that about this season.
And with my Hazel we are steadily reading our way through the Little House on the Prairie series.
An inadvertent Yarn-along post it seems to be today.

Full circle

I am feeling the pull to all things outdoors....I have found a way to make our tiny garden bigger.  In a few weeks, our useless driveway will be ripped up, and raised beds laid in it's place.  "Bloom where you are planted" has become my mantra.

I am moving from this space and starting new under the name LittleWool (Blogger and it's changes have become too much for me so I can be found at Wordpress - though not yet - I am a slow learner).

Also under the name LittleWool, I will be selling my craft at the Ottawa Farmer's Market come September.

I have never been someone that writing has come to easily. I am more of a one liner kind of gal. My biggest problem in university was not getting to class, it was meeting the word count requirement that was imposed - I always felt like I made my point in at least 100 words less than was recommended. In my new space I hope to return to what I intended my blog to be - nice pictures, simple words.

So, I am returning to my roots (heehee) in many more ways than one.
Hopefully you will join me in my new pun intended.

The education of me

"It is not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are."
*Wendell Berry

For a few years now I have been hearing and reading about Kale chips and how awesome they were. And I was skeptical - acutally more to the truth I was a non-believer. That changed this week. I love them. They are delicious. I ate pretty much a whole head of kale in one morning. Yay!

Also, who knew that bean plants were self-pollinating. I didn't. Now I do. A very cool thing to learn.

And finally, not so much as something learned, but something remembered...."Take it on the Run" by REO Speedwagon is a totally well-crafted song that I will always love. Like I said, I may forget some of the time, but somehow it always makes its way back.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.

For what it's worth

Isn't it funny and reassuring that the course of a day can be brought back on the rails by some seemingly negligible event?
My day was brought back in line many thanks to Old Crow Medicine Show....specifically Wagonwheel.
