Heat Wave, Sewing, and Plant Rescues

Posted by mrssmythe on July 2, 2018 in Crafting, Critters, Garden, Out & About, Week in Review |

Is it hot where you’re at? It’s boiling here. Currently, we’re looking at a week’s worth of temperatures in the high 90s. Humidity will put the “real feel” well into the 100 degree range. We’re cooking. What’s strange, is that last Wednesday it was positively chilly. I know because that’s the day we bought our […]

Continued Cold and Snow

Posted by mrssmythe on January 15, 2018 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Snow and frigid temperatures continue – except for one strange day when we reached 60 degrees and all of the snow melted in a matter of hours.

Dogs Don’t Like Lentils…and a Crocheted Turkey

Posted by mrssmythe on February 27, 2017 in Baking, Crafting, Critters, Toys, Week in Review |

The week started with my dinner plans being scuttled by Manny. He found the Italian Lentil Soup mix I’d set out on the counter, dragged it up to our bed and disembowled it. Most disturbing – he didn’t even bother to eat it. This is a dog who will eat just about anything. Green beans, spinach, […]
