  • Many times a day, I snuggle up to this sweet boy and ask
  • I can see for miles and miles and miles. || Hope your Sunday is full of lovely views and relaxation!
  • Excellent cloud day today in the mountains of NC!
  • He's all about that tree. And so am I. ???
  • My friends write books, too! New post up over on small measure about four cookbooks recently published by friends of mine (tap the screen for tags of authors, photographers, and affiliates). These are mighty tasty reads, friends!!!
  • What you call pancakes, I call research and development. Work today included creating, and then inhaling with abandon, these Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes (served alongside sorghum-maple syrup). #wwllt #pancakes #f52grams #food52grams #southernfood #comfortfood
  • #tbt to what might possibly be my favorite photo of Huxley ever. This was from 1 1/2 years ago, when @glennbenglish posed our little honey bear (then 3 years old) with a bit of honey from our hives.
  • The fact that this vista can be accessed simply by walking out our back door, heading into the woods surrounding our home, and heading to the top of a mountain range is something I don't take for granted. The underlying reason for all of the work I do is to inspire myself and others to better steward this verdant planet. That's my drive, my cause, my mission, my mantra.
  • The long and winding road, that leads to my door. || So much green and blue in the cove today!
  • There was a time I used to say we should rename our property
  • Our house, in the middle of the woods.
  • The fried bologna sandwich, elevated. This version, which @glennbenglish and I made for yesterday's picnic, had fried beef bologna, Mahon cheese, pickled okra, and a homemade/home-foraged ramp aioli on grilled sourdough. There was also pixie dust (Kidding! Maybe....?).

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!

  • Alicia says:

    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
