The Way You Make Me Feel

Wow! Welcome all you newbie commenters and readers! I’m so glad to have you onboard here at Small Measure and look forward to getting to know you all better. 

In the meantime, come check out some of my fellow friends in Blog Land, whose posts are always informative, instructive, and, in one case, taste-bud tantalizing! 

To begin, come meet P (that’s P, as in “Persephone”) over at her always hilarious, often-fuzzy-animal-containing, Brooklyn-based blog whatpossessedme. I found P over a year ago and I can honestly say that my life is richer because of her writings. The consistent wit she proffers could easily give Tina Fey et al a serious run for their money. Currently in between jobs, P and her fiance, “Fauxhawk,” are cavorting this week over in the land of elves. Yours truly will be guest blogging in her absence on July 16th. Check it! 

Maria, herbalist, RN, and mama-extraordinaire, chronicles the trials and triumphs of her own homesteading adventures on a 25-acre mountainside at dirtundermynails (the posts of the “piggy pants” she knit her infant son are worth taking a gander for alone!). 
For folks living in the Asheville, NC area, you’ll want to make a beeline for Jodi’s cake shop, Short Street Cakes. Turning out some tasty cupcake morsels daily, Jodi emphasizes the use of local and organic ingredients. She also does weddings, among other events, so keep her in mind should you find yourself in the need for a sweet explosion. Vegan and gluten-free needs can be accommodated. 

Kelly and Erik chronicle homesteading in the City of Angels over at homegrown evolution. Their freak-of-nature chicken, appropriately dubbed “Chickenzilla,” recently produced an egg that could easily feed a family of four. Take a look!

  • My goodness! Here I am, catching up on my blog reading, and there, plain as day, is a familiar rodent wrapped in a bow. Wait a second…
