CSA farm visits, now and then

CSA farm visits, now and then

Our vegetable CSA had a open house farm tour last weekend and we went, bringing home excitement and readiness for spring veggies to began. I’ve written about “Farmer Megan” lots before – like here when the girls’ brownie troop visited the farm on a hot early summer day. And here after our first drop in […]

Spring gardening and backyard shananagans

Spring gardening and backyard shananagans

It’s been so long since I’ve blogged, I ran into someone this weekend who thought something was wrong with her Facebook feed because she wasn’t getting my blog updates anymore. I’m so sorry about that! Thank you to those faithful readers for sticking with me while I go through bouts of needing to write and […]

Spring break is cold, but we have a new BIG sandbox

Spring break is cold, but we have a new BIG sandbox

We are spring breaking this week, so to speak. Spring break comes so early for us that my girls can’t even bare to wear shorts yet. They try, they freeze and I say I told you so. Then they beg for a campfire. Partly because it means eating smores. Partly because it’s a favorite thing […]

Weekends and a few words on change

Weekends and a few words on change

All the days come and go. It’s guaranteed to happen. Monday comes, it’s back to school and back to tackling things that need to be done. Because it’s a another day and that’s what we do. Thankfully we have spring to look forward too, and the time of the year when moms can just say, […]

Displaying kid art in the kitchen without the clutter

Displaying kid art in the kitchen without the clutter

Back in the day we had 1950′s metal cabinets and they were covered in art work – all the time. When I got a new kitchen  I welcomed a clean, clutter free space that I designed and claimed it as mine. I know the kitchen belongs to everyone. But I’m the one working in the kitchen […]

Passing the time of no school days

Passing the time of no school days

There was a burst of warm weather here today and the girls made every point to spend time outside. It was as a good thing, because there was no school today and tomorrow is a teacher work day. Totaling the time spent having snow days and traveling and Presidents day, my kids will have had […]

Homemade Valentine’s Day

Homemade Valentine’s Day

I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day. I really am. I don’t love all the comercializaion of it. But it’s a fun a way to break up the doldrums of February – a hard, cold month with not much excitement going for it otherwise. Unless you count snow of course. Once you have children, Valentine’s Day […]

Winter Adventures

Winter Adventures

It seems the snow just keeps coming here, and has been dictating our days for weeks. We like that – we really do! And that’s where I’ve been, playing in the snow with my family. And by that I mean skiing in Colorado with my brother, sister-in-law and niece. But before we left we had […]

Update on dinners, recipes and baking in the kitchen

Update on dinners, recipes and baking in the kitchen

The kitchen has been a busy place this January. After the holidays, it’s the time for a detox of things extravagant and out-of-the-ordary treats. It’s been a time to get back to baking, and making no processed foods a priority. As much as we can at least. In the later part of last year, I was […]

Kid-made basement spa beats the fancy resort

Kid-made basement spa beats the fancy resort

Just when I was getting a bit envious of a friend posting her winter break pictures at a beautiful spa designation resort with friends, my daughter created a spontaneous spa day. My mom soul was pampered and it was one of those moments where you feel the ultimate love and spirt of your child. Because […]
