What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! It’s a blissful low-70′s kind of day here. In just a bit, my lovely Lark Books editor Nicole is coming over. It’s her birthday today, and we intend to celebrate it outdoors. Alongside Glenn’s stuff-of-legends hamburgers (and fries, too!), we’ll be enjoying s’mores with Whimsy & Spice marshmallows around the fire ring on our patio. There will also be beverages ‘a plenty, and gifts (I can’t share them here, though-she reads this blog!), and, later, she’ll slip down to the yome in our lower field, to rest up in a glorious dwelling in the woods.
Before I unplug from the online world to enjoy our time together, here’s a round-up of this and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*The time of pumpkin ale is back! I wait for it all year. This one is making me happy at present.
*Hard decisions come with keeping chickens. It’s not always eggs and feathers and silly chicken antics.
*Get going on the thing that you know you’re supposed to be doing!
*Russell is in my forest class. His lady friend, Katie, showed up in this amazing prototype field coat for last week’s class. Incredible, right?!
*Claire lives in the dreamiest village in Ireland. Her blog is just as lovely as her environs.
*It’s garlic planting time!
*This children’s toadstool table and chairs set is SO incredible (and SO out of my budget!).
*Much as I love interacting digitally, I so, so prefer real time connections. This video offers a sense of why that is.
Tomorrow, we’re off to see Sigor Ros. So very excited about our first live music show since becoming parents! Sunday I’ll be teaching my Home Dairy class. There’s still space in the class, so call Villagers to register!
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*I post a photo of Huxley here each Friday because, truly, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most. Here he is en route to the chicken coop. He sure does love those fine, feathered friends!
