The end of Lent

From This is Cyprus, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Given to us in Advent, our poinsettia, now outside my study, is still thriving at the end of Lent:We don't usually do a whole lot during Lent, other than (if we remember) eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and hot cross buns on Good Friday.But at the end of February, while chatting over the dinner table about food in general and the cost of groceries, Richard made an idle comment that perhaps we could try giving up meat for Lent. Since I have decidedly vegetarian leanings I thought this was a... Read more

Friday Llama Blogging

From What Do I Know?, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

(I know; it's not Friday, but Typepad suffered a Denial of Service attack yesterday. The hackers will do anything to prevent Friday Cow Blogging from going on. They clearly are worried.) This week I took a couple of friends to the Cotswolds, and our first stop was Minster Lovell, possibly my favorite place on earth. After we admired the ruins we walked around a bit, and came upon a field of llamas, as you do. It turned out one was a mama llama, but she must be fed up with that whole... Read more

rogue spring snowfall

From Life is Good, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Wednesday morning when I woke up and stumbled into the living room, already grumbling at not feeling well, I looked out the window and had the most surreal feeling. After finally seeing all the snow melt away, and enjoying several days of warmth and the discarding of jackets in favor if *gasp* t-shirts, suddenly in the middle of spring there was snow on the ground outside. Which, yeah, is not at all uncommon for April in these parts. But, still. Thankfully it was a sunny day and the snow... Read more

grace in small things #6

From Life is Good, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

You see those little green shoots' I just spotted them right in front of our house today. #squeewootMuch of this week I have felt like total crap, with a really sore throat/ears and mild case of pink eye. This happened right as Zach ramped up to a big event at school he's been planning, so was gone all day/evening. None of this exactly fits into a gratitude entry, but the boys and I just spent our days snuggling on the couch watching TV and I feel zero guilt about all the screentime they got.... Read more

Obsessed

From Ruth's Place, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Usually, I see a pattern that I like on Ravelry and I add it to my insanely ambitious far too long queue and it marinates there for years a while until I get around to casting it on. However, when I saw this Wrap around crochet bracelet I had to cast on immediately. It took me a while to get the hang of it, and I’m still not entirely convinced that I’ve done it exactly right, but I love how it turned out. The seeds are a Japanese seed bead mix that I’ve had for a while... Read more

Scrapbooking

From Ruth's Place, Today, Read 0 times. Similar articles

This week I’m playing along with the challenge from Let’s Capture Our Memories. Here’s the sketch we had to work from. I really wanted to tell the story of this photo, so I swapped out one of the photos in the sketch for a journalling space. One of the traditions I try to keep is to get a yearly photo with Santa (there have been a few years where we have missed it because Gorgeous Girl has not been willing and I wasn’t going to traumatise her by forcing her to sit on...
