Today, I took a long anticipated trip to a local nursery. A friend of mine, who also happens to be in my parent/child class at Great Oak School, got me started on the idea of creating a fairy garden a few weeks ago. I couldn’t shake the idea. I had no business getting [...]
This year we checked out Blackberries of Houston. These bushes weren’t super tall, but still tall enough that I didn’t have to bend over much if I didn’t want to. There bushes, however, were thornless! It was great to not have to strategically plan my every pick. We will definitely be [...]
Ok, so I kinda slacked on the last half of April. Woops. I had a birthday, so there’s that. We still got outside as much as we could for the great outdoor challenge. Admittedly, I’m sure I missed a couple of days in there somewhere. I joined a gym and the boys are [...]
Despite my feeling not so great today, we managed to get quite a bit of things accomplished. We started off the morning with a trip to the nursery to pick up a few plants. They didn’t have what I had set out to get, but we came home with a few lovelies and [...]
This past week I’ve been quite the busy bee. I’ve spent much of my time making sure that my two sweet boys would have everything they needed to be the best little gnome and best little mushroom that they could possibly be.

mend bloomers for a friend
clean & store raw wool

Ah, the hot, humid Houston summer. Oh? It still isn’t summer? Well, it’s close enough anyhow and we’ve been spending as much time as we can outdoors before the real summer heat sets in. oy vey.
Our most recent adventure was at Neal’s Berry Farm out in Spring, TX. We spent the morning out in the [...]
We were sick over the past weekend and during the beginning of this week. Well, Sprout never got sick, the rest of us did. My mom came to save the day and helped us out Monday – Thursday while my husband was out of town. We were over our illness pretty well by [...]
I’ve been plugging away at old projects and adding in some new ones. These past few weeks we’ve been working on stepping stones for lots of family members – including one for our very own family. Let me tell you. It is hard work getting 2 children to put their little piggies in veg. oil [...]
