Fun Friday!

Earthy, For the love of animals No Comment

Since it’s another Fun Friday, thought I’d share a photo of one of my writing buddies….  We thought he was a Golden Retriever, but it turns out he’s an elusive, rarely-photographed Pillow Retriever. Honestly. He’s waiting to go outside and he’s hoping I won’t notice he’s trying to take something with him. Hope you all […]

Household Help

Household Help

Are any of you missing Downton Abbey as much as I am?  For those of us who’ve come down with cases of The Abbey Withdrawal, I thought it might be nice to discuss our very own household helpers.  Let us begin, shall we? So.  When you ask your butler for a little extra help—what?  No […]

Food on My Face: Homemade Makeup

In honor of another Fun Friday, I thought I’d share my tips on making up makeup!  People seem to find it amusing that I wear food-based makeup.  (Can’t imagine why!)  Regardless of how strange the idea might sound, it’s simple, inexpensive, and easy to make!  Plus, I really like how it looks and feels on […]

Our Crazy Daisy

In honor of our first Fun Friday, I thought I’d share a little video of one of my hens, Daisy. She needed to be cleaned up a little, due to a slight injury, but she is not a fan of bathtime!  Hope our Crazy Daisy gives you a chuckle or two! If you enjoy it, […]

Thou Shalt Sucketh and It Shall Be OK

No, I am not trying to make light of the actual commandments.  Yes, I’m suggesting we keep this “rule” etched onto the smooshy surfaces of our brains, as a reference for whenever we try something new.   After all, most of us don’t score a 300 on our first attempt at bowling.  Some of us start […]

From Coop to Nuts

From Coop to Nuts

I should make it clear from the start that this won’t be a true “soup to nuts” article on keeping chickens; the information is simply too vast to condense it here. However, I do think the title suits the subject. It can be read as either: owning chickens can drive you slightly nuts, or you may […]

For the Love of Dandelions

For the Love of Dandelions

I love dandelions. Maybe “love” is a strong word, but I really do like dandelions.  I’m also a fan of what they represent: a chemical-free lawn. Unfortunately, I live in a neighborhood where many lawns are chemically treated and mine tends to stand out … especially at the height of dandelion season.  I bite my […]

I Write, Therefore I Am.  Just Kidding.

Image via Unsplash/Mikhail Pavstyuk Even if I didn’t write, I’d still be me.  Just a whole lot less me than I am. We could all say that to some extent about our interests and hobbies, couldn’t we?  They’re, of course, part of what makes us us.  But what about our passions?  They might not be required for […]

Homely Beauty

Homely Beauty

That’s right.  I’m pretty proud of my homely beauty.  I love that many of the products from my beauty routine come right from my home.  In fact, most the things I’m wearing on my face today are edible.  No, I don’t eat the leftovers. Prove it, you say?  But of course.  Here’s a summary of […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Rosehip Seed Oil

I’ve never been much of a trend follower.  In fact, trends have a habit of getting on my nerves … unless they happen to coincide with my own tastes or wishes, that is.  Maybe that makes me a trend hyprocrite.  Either way, I recently stumbled upon a beauty trend that has fallen right smack into […]
