Proflic | January Wrap-Up


January started off with a bang and continued on quickly and seemed to escape from me fast. I was not prolific in the manner I was expecting. I have a small journal I keep with me to jot down to-do’s and ideas as they come to me, and I will just say that I probably […]

Currently | Late January


+Chris pulled all of the beets, roasted them, and then turned them into pickles. Should be an interesting thing to try! +My parents came to visit this last weekend and brought their dogs. Isabelle, here, enjoyed sunning herself in the doorways when the sun came through. I think she enjoyed seeing me but she’s going […]

Westcave Preserve | Part II


Did you miss the first post? Read Part I here Inside the cave, which really isn’t much of a cave, I couldn’t help but think it would make a great shelter. Which is probably what local tribes and other visitors, including animals, have done over the years. As you can see, someone named Nichols visited […]

December and part of November were so dark, dreary and rainy that it was really depressing for me. January has turned beautiful, with […]

Yarn Therapy


I toiled over this blanket for so long. Its original incarnation looked nothing like this. In fact it was going to be a simple square, half double crochet alternating between the back and front loops in a striped pattern. Somehow along the way I kept decreasing my rows. The first time I did not get […]

An Enchanted New Years | Enchanted Rock Pt. 2


If you missed the first part of this series go here. On New Years Eve I slept in and Chris got up early to take sunrise photos. Once up and breakfast was eaten, we headed off for the eastern side of the loop around the rocks. It was a gorgeously clear day again, perfect really. […]
