Each year when the snow melts away a vernal (vernal: 2. appearing or occurring in spring: vernal migratory movements-ref: Dictionary.com) pond reveals itself out by our willow tree. It is always a little bit different in shape, range, and depth. Sometimes it lasts for a very long time, sometimes it goes away too quickly. This is my fifth spring here on the farm, and the vernal pond is one of my favorite elements of early spring and summer. This year's pond is the largest we have had, and what you see in this photo is actually not the largest it...

You can take that statement, "Beside Myself" in a couple of different ways ... perhaps. But I am actually using it as a play on words. My focus is on the "side" syllable. I have shared a couple of main course recipes the past two weeks from those my son and I have worked on together, and today I thought I would share two recent side dishes we have deployed into the family menus. Unfortunately, these two side dishes are so good that each time we make them up, they are devoured before a camera can be fetched--so I have...

When we were children, my sister had a santa that looked much like today's Santa. I have no idea how she came to have him, but I distinctly recall he belonged to her for some reason. I am holding a brand new give-away ... details further on in this blog. As the years went by her Santa hung on the family Christmas tree each year and when she became an adult and moved out, her Santa stayed with the family collection at my parents' house. I always liked him because he had such a wonderful, old-fashioned look. When my husband...
