Changing Light

Every year around this time I find myself wondering how Summer has slipped away so swiftly. As much as I love Fall and its tee shirt weather (yep!) days and cool cozy sweater nights, when the chill starts to creep in, I get a little wistful and can't help but think "Wait! I'm not ready for Winter!". This year's Summer's end was especially poignant. Our son George turned 1 and his babyhood is tiptoeing away along with the sunny evenings and fireflies. The light has been so beautiful, a last hurrah before it leaves us for the rest of the year.

A Season Of Cheese

While with most women this stage involves massive amounts of cleaning, for me (unfortunately for James)  it means an obsessive unending stream of creative projects!

Using Animals as Lawn Mowers: Pros and Cons

I've always loved the concept of using animals as lawn mowers.  Since well before we had any animals I dreamed of ruminants grazing the lawn and never having to worry about a mower.

So when I saw our pals at Rough Draft Farmstead posting about their Lambmowers and simultaneously engaging in a "animals as lawn mowers" conversation with a Facebook follower, I got back to day dreaming about the day when lawn mowing and weed whacking would not be necessary.
