  • Was weeding the patio and looked up to find this little gnome picking daffodils.
  • Follow the red brick road? Indeed I did.
  • The best part of @fernworks and @killaspro traveling to Southeast Asia in January? The Thai food cooking kick they've been on since their return. Still thinking about these crazy delicious wings @fernworks made last night (using the recipe from @pokpokpdx). Thanks for having us over, buddies!
  • Back at home but missing this sight, from #selbygardens.
  • Family, gardens, and sea creatures are what characterized our time in Florida. I could stare at these exquisite jellyfish all day.
  • Nothing could be finer than to be back in North Carolina. Missed these mountains something fierce!
  • A late winter trip to Florida was exactly what we three Englishes needed, but we are glad to be headed back home to greet the spring in the magical mountains of western North Carolina.
  • Something wicked this way comes. At the Magic Kingdom. First time here as a parent. At Huxley's request, went on the Haunted Mansion ride first. Let the good times roll!
  • Surfside in Sarasota at the in-law's lovely home, light breeze, good reads, good times. Next, on to my dad's place in Tampa. Florida, you're doing good. Reeeeeeeeal good.
  • Rollin in the deep. Sarasota, you've been grand.
  • The tiny bird whisperer strikes again.
  • Making the rounds. #motemarinelab

Little House on the Knob





From last night. I think we’re up to around 9″ right now, with the possibility for more before sundown. Power’s on, though, the wood stove is roasting, sipping a latte, working on the sixth chapter in “Keeping Bees.” So far, so good.


*It’s hard to capture a still photo of dogs who enjoy snow as much as mine. Dexter practically squealed with delight when we let him out (there’s a reason one of his many, many nicknames is “Pig”). At least some members of our household appreciate the white fluff for just what it is.

  • We live in New England so I know snow can be a destructive pain sometimes, but gosh those photos are just so beautiful!!
    Hope you all stay warm and have a cozy weekend.

    Beautiful, and nice not to have to go anywhere. We're more prepared this time than last time, that's for sure!

    One of these days after it thaws, we'll have to meet up. :) Enjoy your snuggle time before the woodstove!

    Ditto regarding the beauty of these photos, especially the one of your home.

  • EcoGrrl says:

    lovely! i think winter bypassed pdx minus the one freak snow day we had. just another misty january day!

  • Jessie K says:

    I see you got dumped on like we did in VA! My chickens do not like the snow. Yours?

  • Yep, Jessie, dumped on again! And just after the Ladies' yard had finally melted clear from last month's snow.
    They're not ga-ga about it, but they seem fine. I'm giving them extra corn and grit and treats like currants and leafy greens. They're hanging out in the hen house, griping about the snow in their yard, but only pretty benignly, like grounded teenagers. I think they're just bored.

  • Heather says:

    Such a beautiful scene of snow you have captured. Living on the Front Range of Northern Colorado, I know how heavy snow can be, and you captured it perfectly.
    Stay warm
