Shipper Cats


Buttercup and Spice, helping me with my Etsy business. Sleeping on the job…. They’re FIRED!

P.S. Thank you for missing me. I’ll report more at a future time about all going on, but I’m back!

In Georgia’s Kitchen


This is what Georgia’s kitchen looks like these days.

Georgia died three years ago. As those of you who’ve been here know, her son–my cousin Mark–passed away in July, suddenly. These days, his wife Sheryl is working hard to get Georgia’s house renovated. It’s been sitting empty for three years. It’s been a big cleanout just to get this far, and much more work remains to be done, but I’ve been over there quite a bit helping Sheryl. More on that in future posts!

Meanwhile, Sheryl is doing well and appreciates all the kind words and thoughts for her in this difficult time. Many of you have asked also about Rodney. After a five-week stay in the hospital following a traumatic vehicle accident on the job, they finally let him back out in the real world! He’s recovering, and has a long road to getting back to walking again and is not able to work at this time, but he’s doing well also–and thank you for asking!

  1. July 7, 2017 - Mark

    Those of you who have read here regularly over the years know of my cousin Mark well. He passed away suddenly yesterday afternoon. More about my beloved cousin at another time.

    If you’re here, checking here, after I’ve not been here so much, you also know Rodney. He had a very bad wreck almost two weeks ago and has been in the hospital, and is … Continued…

    Look at this calf! Photographic evidence proves that I didn’t imagine that she was born a beautiful silvery gray. Amazing coloring. I LOVED IT SO.

    And now….six weeks later….

    Every day, her beautiful gray is slowly transforming to a creamy, beige-y blah similar to Moon Pie’s coloring. SIGH.

  1. June 7, 2017 - Note From the Swamp

    Surfacing! Finally! This has been an overwhelming spring. The only time in weeks I’ve had a moment to breathe between Etsy shop orders (see my Etsy shop!) and workshops and the farm and all three kids coming home for a week in there, too, was when the internet went out for nearly a week and a half. Of course, I found other … Continued…

  1. April 24, 2017 - Valentina’s Turn

    She did it!

    Valentina had a fast and uneventful delivery on Friday.

    It’s a boy and a girl!

    The boy, left, has Lamancha ears. (Daddy was Hickory, my Lamancha, who was sold after he did his job.) The girl, right, has Alpine ears from her mama…. Continued…

  1. April 18, 2017 - Always A Good Day for Ducks

    Ducks love rain.

    The other day, I was watching an Alton Brown “Good Eats” episode about cooking duck and he was talking about the fat in ducks, which is related to why they can float in water, then mentioned the funny thing about that is that ducks hate rain.

    I was like….WHAT?! Clearly, Alton has never had ducks. THEY LOVE RAIN.

    I still love Alton Brown. But … Continued…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
