Ring in the new!

A Happy New Year to my select (two or three) readers! This delinquent blogger is having a great start to the year. Here are a few of the things that make my life bright and wonderful right now. At first I wrote 'all the things', but then realized that I would never be able to finish that post. So here we go with a little list:

The seed catalogs have come in and the oogling and heated discussing with friends has commenced. Locals, know that NOFA is putting together bulk orders. Murray McMurray has sent is most tempting publication. I ordered two packages of bees, one destined for a hopeful endeavor: I am working to help establish an observation bee hive at Drumlin Farm.

Meanwhile, the girls (the human girls) are humming as they work and play, and are still excited for snow and winter. The feathered girls are less enthusiastic as they hate to touch snow with their feet, but they are laying, laying!

The fireplace his humming, too, the fan putting out a lot of heat which we need today!

Life is good.


  1. I am so excited to hear that ya'll have started homeschooling! Please let me know if I can be of any help or if you have any questions! We have a homeschool Girl Scout troop that meets two Fridays a week if ya'll have time and would like to join!

    So excited to hear about the bee hive your working on for Drumlin Farm! We often talk about keeping bees (and chickens- though the chickens are more likely at this point in time than the bees)! :) xo

  2. Happy New Year from a delinquent reader! I am so behind. lol Oh well, such is life sometimes, eh?

    I enjoyed seeing some of your days.
