Signs of Spring…and Some Crocheted Donuts

Posted by mrssmythe on February 19, 2017 in Chickens, Crafting, Garden, Ginger's Snaps, Seasons, Toys |

Look what’s popping out despite the snow! Part of me says, “Hooray!” Part of me is concerned. But, with warmer temperatures forecast for the coming week (conveniently in time for school break), I suppose it can’t be terrible.

Christmas Preparations, a Fish Food-Eating Dog, Hats, and Chickens

Taking Stock of the Neighborhood

Posted by mrssmythe on August 12, 2015 in Garden, Ginger's Snaps, Seasons |

Ginger and I have been walking through the neighborhood this week – taking stock of things we haven’t seen for weeks (we’ve been at the pond), noting changes in the neighbors’ yards, taking photos of what’s blooming.
