Finding a wild ornamental crabapple tree growing by the side of the road was a big surprise. I didn't know ornament crabapple trees grow wild here.

I'm unplugged. I'll be away from everything until late in the month. Here's what I'm doing.
Unplugged. I am living in the moment, observing, watching, taking notes, thinking through scenes. No phone, radio, television, and internet for 8-10 days.

Counting down the days!
Pyramid Life Center's Women's Writing Retreat, set in the gorgeous Adirondacks, was well worth the 12 trip. I have next year's dates in on my schedule.

Everyone can make sausage. No added preservatives. This week's Honest Kitchen recipe is Maple Breakfast Sausage.
You can use any meat you'd like. I used venison from my 2014 buck. It was equally as good, but different, when I made this with meat from our pigs.

Hunting is a big part of "old fashioned" homesteading and an important part of who I am.

Not in the garden on July 16. Let's head for the trees. Plums, pears, apples, nuts. And then the berries - raspberry, blackberry and strawberries.

I was nervous about my first white water rafting trip. Jessie Herling, co-manager along with her husband Tom, visited with me the night before and helped put my mind at ease. I had such a great time on the river that I returned the following week to raft again. US Rafting is excellent! I'm hooked and looking forward to my next trip with them this summer.
