And just like that

Spring has finally arrived.

Several days of 75+ weather and a rain storm has rid us of the snow..aside from a few patches here and there.

Just in time for the fruit trees and berry bushes to arrive 


Soon birds and the bunnies will be returned to their summertime homes so grass can be nibbled and dirt can be scratched, but best of all, the mini garden I have going on in my living room will all make its way to the warmth of the greenhouse.


Onions, peppers, eggplants, celery, cabbages, chives, and six different kinds of tomatoes are all ready to go. It will be nice to have a jumpstart on veggies this year for not only ourselves, but for the fine folks at the farmers market that we will soon be a vendor at.


Have a great weekend folks! 

Baby it’s cold and wet outside

Hello folks! I hope you all had a good weekend, we had a nice Thanksgiving with a little snowfall ambiance outside, followed by freezing rain on Gilmore Girl Friday, sun for a couple of days and here we are back at freezing rain. 


Thanksgiving went very well, we had only three guests but that was enough for us because we have a small table and we all just barely fit!


Our very first thanksgiving turkey was about 13lbs dressed…which was slightly smaller than my friends 47lb bird. Though we had plenty of leftover so I think our bird…Pickles, as Leif had named him, was just the right size.


He was cooked on the grill, which has turned out to be our favorite way of cooking birds. He was very filling and tasty. Thank you Pickles.

I wrote before about falling off the Pinterest wagon, well I had found these two pies I wanted to try out…the following two pictures are NOT my pies


I think I did alright… at least on the pumpkin pie lol. The following pictures are mine, pre-oven for the Apple and middle of cooking for the pumpkin 

I didn’t nail it but that’s okay, they were both delicious, I was just happy to have a chance to wear my new apron which I purchased at the holiday craft fair from my quilting guild


We finally have all the parts of the greenhouse finished! Plastic is on, doors are built, nesting boxes are ready. We just need to clear the excess wood and get the chickens inside.

It’s hard to tell but we have deer mesh separating the chicken area and the area with the feed and atv 

Friday as I said we had our Gilmore Girls day! We don’t participate in Black Friday shopping, I live next to a super tourist town and a long time ago I worked at two different clothing stores in said town, I’ve dealt with a lot of chaos and rude customers, so I try to avoid shopping in town on Holidays & weekends. 

Instead Lorelai and I went to my in laws and had our day with my mother in law


Unhealthy food was involved, though it was mainly the vegetables as we were all too full from the previous night.

Now if you haven’t watched the new episodes yet never fear, I won’t give a thing away except to say this, I probably should not have allowed my almost ten year old to watch it. There was language in there that had no previously been in the series. We ended up taking a break to watch a Disney movie instead and gave in when she asked to go play a game on the computer. 

Well folks, I’m off to finish a couple of orders that will be heading out this week and next, I hope you are staying warm and safe wherever you are.
Have a great day folks!
