A scratching sound.. He turned his back to it. It sounded like something was approaching. A faint chitinous sound that grew louder. Something tugged at the edge of the duvet. He turned again. Small pressure points moving across it as if something was walking on it. He turned around again covering his head with the […]
The apple tree was very productive this year. It’s a very young tree but it yielded seven pounds of healthy deliciousness. The apple sauce I made a week ago has been living in the freezer because I wanted to wait posting until I had at least a couple of dishes containing this wonderful fall gift. […]
Things aren’t always the same. To one person a thing is this way. To another it’s another way. Neither are wrong. Like when some uses one knitting style and another uses a different style. As far as I know there are five “big” styles of knitting and then there’s all the variations. Every one of […]
This is Marvin. He goes hiding when halloween is near, because he doesn’t want to scare anyone. So if you meet him in the forest, remember; he’s very nice and if you’re kind to him at his camp site, he’ll wave you over and he’ll share his marshmallows with you. The pattern is free, and […]
The last couple of weeks have been a little rough. I’ll admit that much. It’s kind of limbo weather-wise, because the chill in the air makes it cold enough to not go outside without a jacket but not cold enough to shift to winter clothes all together. A couple of hours where the sun isn’t […]

Moxxi has never caught one before […]
This is about the most hated activity of Moxxi’s. Claws needs trimming. She really hates it and I can’t really blame her. It feels so nasty and I can imagine how awful it must feel for her. What she does like however is the nail file. We go through this every 4-5 weeks and it’s […]
Remember the blackberries? They looked so promising. There were a lot of them and I had hoped for a harvest that was – if not amazing – then at least decent. But alas.. no harvest at all. I don’t know what happened but they didn’t grow bigger or ripened as usual, they just remained small […]
For a bookworm like me a bookworm like this littly guy seemed like the perfect match. He’s so cute! He’s not particularly difficult to make, although I ran into a litte hickup or two along the way. Mostly it was my own fault and it’s what can happen when you don’t use the materials listed […]
