Eating wears me out!

Why does food make you feel so tired?  Yesterday we had home grown ham and vegetables with all the trimmings.  Piles of delicious food. Cold and gray outside with constant snow flurries but warm and happy on the inside in more ways than one. However we are not done yet.  One more dinner party, this time …

Custard Squares – Thank-Fully

Our darling Ronnie, who has been with The Fellowship for years now,  observed to me yesterday (In the comments lounge where all the best conversations of my day happen except the ones with Sheila of course) that my blog had changed over the course of time.  I used to do more food.   I had not realised it but …

Working Bull

I got a call today from the farmer who has Queenie over at her house, (well –  in her field, Queenie in anyone’s house would be like the proverbial bull in a china shop. )  Anyway when they looked out their window yesterday morning they saw a good deal of ‘Activity’  between Queenie and the bull. …

Where has the sun gone?

We have a lovely little glass house attached to the South Side of the house. It is designed to warm that side of the house as well as growing the greens and herbs for the winter. But where is the light?  Where has the sun gone? It feels to me like we have had less sun …

Late!

So sorry. This morning I woke up late. The fire had gone out. It was blowing a gale outside and bucketing down with rain. All at the same time.  I launched myself out of bed. I fed everyone in the barn (all the pigs are bad tempered and squabbly) then Boo and I brought the …

Boo and His Babies

Yesterdays comments lounge is worth a look, if you have not already been. We had one of our magic Fellowship days.  I love our discussions, wish we were able to have a coffee with that! I read through all the comments yesterday again and again, Kim and Esther read along with me, in our cyber …

No Title

I have decided Not to Shop for anything at all until AFTER the American Thanksgiving. This way I can avoid the Christmas Rush just a little longer.  (They are already playing Christmas Carols).  Thanksgiving is now Pre-Christmas. I think Thanksgiving is such an innocent and genuine celebration. Just food. Just people. What more could one possibly want. …

Off the farm

There was rather a big family event, yesterday.  Wonderful and distracting. So once again we will leave Nanny Boo to watch the kittens until miss c gets herself back in gear. Sometimes it is hard to tell where one kitten starts and the other one begins isn’t it. They are such a tangle. Soon, soon. Love …

The positives …

… about being below freezing for so long. And there are positives, it cannot possibly be all bad. Not in Our World anyway.  There are lots of good things. The pigs get a warm breakfast of soaked alfalfa cubes, garlic, kitchen scraps  and molasses.  It actually looks pretty tasty.. if you are a pig. The …

Getting Going

Yesterday I could not get going.  It was so freezing cold outside   – hovering around 20F (-6C)  – not that cold compared to what is coming but the wind was screaming and it felt so much colder – I was driven back  inside, straight after doing the most basic of the chores, but I could not …
