Solidarity
I very much remember my earliest taste of the poignancy of a

The tiny house is overwhelmed by crafts....help me unload them and check out my Etsy shop, WalnutAndSeven ! This is the sad state of affairs when injured (still! sigh!) and can't run much...to the yarn stash I go. Nothing over $30, all handmade by me, and f...

Spring cleaning...'bout time I dusted off this blog!
What have I been up to lately in addition to ignoring this blog? Breaking 1:45 in a half marathon last weekend, that's what! And completing my 20-mile trail race in late February (though with less impressive results, IMO). The Pyscho Wyco 20 miler...well, I...

Christmas time and other favorite things
We've had some lovely days here...     ...and done some Christmas preparation at Fulk's Tree Farm where I caught this 4-footer white pine, last Saturday after we ran the muddy North Ridge in Weston:   And Nugget even followed the rules, as much as she would...
