Into the New Year

Posted by mrssmythe on January 10, 2019 in Baking, Celebrations, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

“Cozy” is the worm I’d use to describe our New Year’s Eve this year. For us, it was a rainy night with lots of wind – the perfect weather for hunkering down by the fire and watching old movies…which is exactly what we did. After a very busy and full Christmas season, having a night for […]

What We Do When It Snows

Posted by mrssmythe on April 19, 2018 in Art, Baking, Critters, Seasons |

Spring is certainly dragging its heels this year. I think it’s snowed three times since I last wrote at the beginning of April. At this point, I have no patience for the cold. It makes me cranky.

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 […]
