Baby Knits
I thought about the fact that she was due in spring, and would be spending her first several months of life in the hot summer heat, but I still wanted to make her a few things, and since my sewing skills have yet to be developed, I took to the knitting need...

From Strawberries to Cherry Tomatoes
After weeks and weeks of brutally hot summer heat, we're finally getting a much needed break. It actually rained two night's ago, which shouldn't be a thing here in Oregon, but this year, it totally is. The change in weather and the early ripening tomatoes ...

welcome home little one
It's true what they say, there really is no amount of research you can do to fully prepare yourself for first-time parenthood. Not in our case, anyway, which is to say that we have very few people in our lives who have had (or are planning to have) children...

Spring Disarray
I'm so happy that it's raining. Somehow I find myself more inclined to stroll around outside when there's a light drizzle and breeze. It feels so refreshing and much more seasonally appropriate than the warm, sunny days we've had this month. Outside, some o...

The Hen's Crow
This morning, I woke to the sound of a hen crowing. This crow wasn't your typical robust rooster crow, but a poorly executed, off-putting, gurgly attempt at the act. I was deep in dreamland when the first crowing pulled me violently from my slumber. Luckily...

Snippets of July
Blackberry pie oh me oh my, and what Detroit Lake (aka Detroit Pond) looks like during a crazy drought. July is on its way out, and I can't say I'm sad. We had a short burst of cooler weather over the weekend, and it has me aching for fall. Is it fall yet? ...

Gardening and Blogging
I talk about my garden often here, and the weather too. The two go hand-in-hand, I think, because the more time I spend in my garden, the more I consequently notice the extremes in temperature, the rainy days, the untimely seasonal shifts and the nightly lo...

In the Garden
Aside from pulling weeds and planting a few flowers, we haven't done much gardening this year, but back in the first week of April, just before the baby came, we decided to take a trip to the garden center to see if they had any tomatoes. It was too early i...

Warmth
Last Friday was so warm and beautiful. Matt and I went for a stroll (or waddle) around the neighborhood, plopped ourselves on the front steps with our coffees, and decided all spur of the moment-like to do some gardening. We planted tomatoes, y'all. I don't...

Full Term
> Well, we're officially 37+ weeks now, which they say is considered full term. It's strange and exciting to know that she could come at any moment, and that even if she decides to wait until she's due (April 3rd) or later, she'll still be here in no time a...

In the Garden
I wasn't going to garden much this year. With the baby due in early April, I thought we'd be too busy adjusting to our new life during the peak planting season to get anything done, but the closer we come to her arrival date, the more I start to think about...
