Each morning we wake to the same white scene as the day before. We are warm and safe in our home unlike so many others this morning. Still a sheet of ice forms new each night over my mind undoing the work of yesterday as the cares and worries grow from the microscopic icy thoughts […]

What to do with all that post Christmas wrapping madness! Ok let’s talk cardboard. Around here it is a thing to be treasured and USED! First of all we love it in the garden. It often goes down first when a new raised bed is made. This helps suppress the weeds and eventually just turns […]

The rhythms of motherhood have an ebb and flow that often crossover each other and influence the other. What we learn in one season will often help us with a different problem entirely years later.
