More Backyard Birds, More Crochet, and a Bit of Spring

Posted by mrssmythe on April 14, 2019 in Chickens, Cooking, CPT's Lens, Crafting, Critters, Toys, Week in Review |

Greetings! Here I am, yesterday, sitting in the sun in the backyard – the first time I was out and about in just about two weeks. Otherwise, I’ve been bedridden, overcoming a bout with the flu that slid into a case of pneumonia. It’s definitely good to be feeling better. And here, you see the […]

Latest Knitting, a Recipe for Cheese Pie, and some Tidying

Posted by mrssmythe on February 24, 2019 in Cooking, Crafting, Housekeeping, Old Books, Toys, Week in Review |

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. Elsewhere (outside a Noodles and Co. restaurant, to be precise), bulbs are emerging. Maybe we’re headed for […]

And Then There Were Four

Posted by mrssmythe on February 6, 2017 in Books, Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Toys, Week in Review |

More snow this week… About 2 inches is all, but it came down all day, and the snow dogs – Kipper and Ursa – were thrilled. Kipper, in fact, didn’t want to come in out of the storm. When we finally got him inside, his coat was covered in snow and he had to be […]
