Arctic Temperatures and an Accordion

Posted by mrssmythe on December 28, 2017 in Celebrations, Chickens, Critters, Garden, Mrs. Smythe, Seasons, Week in Review |

Did you have a white Christmas like we did? Wasn’t it nice? Or, maybe it wasn’t so nice for you. Maybe you had to drive somewhere and the roads were treacherous. That’s never fun. But, if, like us, you were spending Christmas at the at the next door neighbor’s house and had only to walk […]

Caterpillar Happenings and a Return to Knitting

Posted by mrssmythe on September 10, 2017 in Chickens, CPT's Lens, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Week in Review |

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about caterpillars. We found a monarch caterpillar in the hydrangeas getting ready to spin its chrysalis about ten days ago. By the time we’d finished dinner, it had finished the job. Since then, it has weathered several rainstorms, and, despite it’s delicate appearance, seems to be incredibly strong. […]

CPT A brought his sequoias home from the office this past week. He has two now (from an original batch of eight) that he’s nurtured from seed. They’re two years old, and it was time for them to be repotted…a nerve-wracking procedure as CPT A has grown rather fond to them. But, here we are, two days later, and […]

More Snow…and Sledding with a Chicken

Posted by mrssmythe on March 20, 2017 in Chickens, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

First Day of Spring! And, wouldn’t you know it, there’s still snow on the ground. A lot of snow. Typical New England. Things were kind of drippy and melty at the beginning of the week. My rock wall took on a new, slick beauty… and the grass looked like it was covered in lace. But, then […]
