One River comes into focus

The past month has involved quite a bit of hard work preparing for our photography show; the show is opening on December 2nd at Marti's on Main in Albion, New York.  When we first decided to do a photography show this December, the idea seemed rather simple and easy to pull off.  Of course it could have stayed that way, but the more we worked on it, the bigger our plans became and the more work there was to be done.  No regrets about that at all, we are having a good time doing something productive and creative that the...

The river flows gently

Last week my husband and I took an early evening boat ride down the river, over at our cottage just a few miles from the farm. September and October are the most beautiful months for going out on that section of the river; the water is very clear and the trees are beginning to change to their autumn splendor. While we were out we saw many Canada geese, heron, king fishers, and swans. We also saw quite a few turtles sunbathing on fallen tree trunks and limbs laying at water's edge. The temperature was cool, but not cold and we...

I wore a wool hat

It has already been chilly enough recently, I wore a wool hat a couple of times last week. AndiIt is just now the last day of summer.  I remember the first year I was in New York, we went to my husband's nephew's farm--a couple of hours south of us-- for a pig roast in mid-August and camped out a couple of nights.  It got down into the 40's both nights and we were freezing all night long; mid-August. That funny little hand knit skirt I was making last week for Sweet Pea is finished now, but she didn't want...

This is a brief post to share a couple more knitting photos ... it is great to be able to knit more once again.  Little Sweet Pea is being so good about not ripping out my needles any longer.  She actually sat in my lap and watched me work on her little eyelash yarn skirt last night.  I'm going to call this one "Sassafras Tea Skirt", because I intend to have a tea party...

[twitter-follow screen_name='ILiveonaFarm' show_count='yes'] Remember I told you all that my son made a custom Subway Roll Sign style print for me for my birthday back in early August? And, I was going to take a photo of it to share with you all, but I had second thoughts about posting that particular one on the Internet. It has some personally identifying landmarks from my life on it, and I don't feel comfortable broadcasting that out to the universe. Please forgive me, it is not anything personal. However, I did want to share this photo with you of a custom sign...
