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 […]

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. […]
